Presented by Neue Berliner Räume

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 8 gennaio 2012

08. – 21. Januar 2012 Neue Berliner Räume is pleased to present the exhibition CLAIM in January 2012. The exhibited works are united by their reliance on a direct aesthetic presence rather than a conceptual background. The exhibition will be staged in a disused factory building and will feature works of painting, drawing, installation, sculpture, and video and sound art by the artists Christian Achenbach, Giuseppe Armenia, Carlo Bernardini, David Buckingham, Guido Canziani Jona, Jesper Carlsen, Paolo Grassino, Douglas Henderson, Philip Loersch, Jacopo Mazzonelli, Christopher Munch Andersen, John O’Connor, Kaspar Oppen Samuelsen, Domenico Piccolo, Federico Pietrella, Christoph Schirmer, Moritz Schleime, Owen Schuh, Secret Stars**, Klaus-Martin Treder and Per Wizén. A distinct emotional perspective marks many of the works and it is the will to provoke a moment of directness that emerges with their dramatic gesture. In this way, the works explore the possibilities of an intuitive response and find an emotive language that overwhelms an intellectual approach. The shape of the concrete forms the essential feature of a visual unity that reaches far into the room to unfold its potential force. This claiming of an aesthetic field is the central idea of the exhibition.
Neue Berliner Räume would like to thank the galleries Delloro Contemporary Art, Federico Bianchi Contemporary Art, Galerie Jette Rudolph, Galerie Mario Mazzoli, Henningsen Gallery, Hunchentoot, Kit Schulte Contemporary Art, LARMgalleri, Martin Asbæk Gallery, Paolo Maria Deanesi Gallery, Stene Projects and Wendt + Friedmann for their collaboration. The exhibition is curated by Manuel Wischnewski with assistance by Dr Marc Wellmann (Director of exhibitions, Georg-Kolbe-Museum Berlin).

Life Class: Today’s Nude

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 29 giugno 2009

kaneLondon until 4/7/09 Artangel 31 Eyre Street Hill. Alan Kane In July the nation learns to draw through television life drawing classes led by John Berger, Judy Purbeck, Maggi Hambling, Gary Hume and Humphrey Ocean. Broadcast during the daytime on Channel 4 in a series of five half-hour classes, the audience is guided by a tutor who gives insights into the techniques of figurative drawing, art and life. Each class features a different type of model and the classes take place in a range of settings from the Life Drawing room at the Royal Academy of Arts to the artist’s own studio and a dance studio.  From the end of June, in advance of the broadcast of the programmes, Artangel is organising temporary drop-in life drawing classes in five locations across London – in the City, Soho, Covent Garden, Canary Wharf and Bloomsbury – and in four cities across the UK: Manchester, Bristol, Southampton and Glasgow. In a different location every lunch-time, a class appears for just two hours and passers-by are invited to sit behind an easel, pick up a pencil and draw. Click here for details.  Life Class: Today’s Nude continues Kane’s often irreverent attempts at democratising the production and dissemination of art and culture by taking the nude life class model out of the rarified intimacy of the studio and transmitting it nationwide.  Life Class: Today’s Nude is conceived by artist Alan Kane, commissioned and produced for Channel 4 by Artangel as part of the Jerwood/Artangel Open. The programmes were commissioned by Jan Younghusband, Commissioning Editor for Arts and Performance, Channel 4. The commission is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.  Artists’ materials for the -pop-up’ life drawing classes supplied by London Graphic Centre.  This project is supported by Arts Council England, Artangel International Circle, Special Angels and The Company of Angels  (kane)

Collettiva: Don’t Look Away

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 15 giugno 2009

don't look awayRoma until 20 giugno via Gramsci 61, Accademia Britannica -Don’t Look Away- e’ la mostra conclusiva per la stagione 2008-2009 del Programma Fine Arts dell’Accademia Britannica, diretto da Jacopo Benci. La mostra – che ha il sostegno di Photoworks e del Conseil des Arts et des Lettres del Governo del Que’bec – presenta nuove opere degli artisti Katie Cuddon, Graham Durward, Celia Hempton, Eddie Peake, David Spero, Amikam Toren, e degli architetti Joseph Bedford e Pierre Gendron. Con l’occasione, verrà pubblicato l’annuale catalogo Fine Arts che raccoglie le opere create dagli artisti e architetti residenti all’Accademia Britannica da settembre 2008 a giugno 2009.  Dopo aver conseguito il BA alla Glasgow School of Art nel 2002, Katie Cuddon (Sainsbury Scholar in Sculpture and Drawing, ottobre 2008-settembre 2009) ha conseguito, sempre alla GSA, un Mphil nel 2004, e quindi un MA al Royal College of Art, Londra. -I dipinti di Graham Durward incorporano immagini (talvolta elusive) tratte dalla storia.
Graham Durward (Abbey Fellow in Painting, aprile-giugno 2009) vive e lavora a New York. La sua piu’ recente personale si e’ tenuta nel febbraio 2009 alla Maureen Paley Gallery, Londra..  -Celia Hempton realizza dipinti di luoghi atmosferici, atemporali, desolati e dimenticati.  -David Spero ha sviluppato diverse serie dal carattere ben definito che distillano varie tradizioni e approcci alla fotografia, da quello documentario alla foto-scultura, costituendo una pratica ricca e sfaccettata, caratterizzata nel suo insieme da un’indagine quieta e contemplativa -Amikam Toren esplora la natura della rappresentazione affrontando un oggetto o un’immagine a un livello perspicuo ed impiegandone materiale, uso, o forma per riaffermare o ricostituire il significato in modi sempre stranamente familiare eppure nuovi.

Expo: Dan Perjovschi

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 18 aprile 2009

danParis Galerie Michel Rein 42 rue de Turenne until 23/5/2009.   For about 10 years Dan Perjovschi has been jumping from one wall to another (some time falling on the floor or floating from the ceiling) story-telling the world around us. As he says, if he draws it, he understands it. The style is anarchic with no apparent structure. A sort of visual jazz. From international world-affecting decision to the taste of the morning coffee, the distance is measured in centimeters. Drawing after drawing, Perjovschi is knitting the big narrative of the contemporary world. With humor, irony and empathy, needing no one and obeying no rules. Free style. Dan Perjovschi is currently participating to the exhibition «Frontie’res invisibles» at the Tri Postal until July 12th at the occasion of Lille 3000. Artist in residency at the Recollets, a residency programme of the City of Paris and the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.
