Balance
Jun 10 – Oct 9, 2022
Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwar
Berlin, Germany

Incorporating a range of styles and movements that include Minimal Art, Transavanguardia, Pop Art and contemporary art, the exhibition presents works dealing with individual and societal struggles to attain balance, harmony and stability. At the same time, these works show how transient balance is, once it has been attained.

The exhibition Balance divides the depiction of these dwindling certainties into five thematic sections: the futility of longing for balance, the perception of balance, the tension inherent in interpersonal balancing acts, the imbalance in the relationship between humans and nature, and lastly, the balancing of individual and societal expectations in economic contexts.

The new presentation of the collection in the Kleihueshalle, now reopened following extensive refurbishment, stems from the Sammlung Marx, the Nationalgalerie Collection and loans. Featured are 39 works by artists including Leonor Antunes, Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Ross Bleckner, Francesco Clemente, Enzo Cucchi, Dan Flavin, Günther Förg, Douglas Gordon, Andreas Gursky, Donald Judd, Gülsün Karamustafa, Anselm Kiefer, Imi Knoebel, Robert Rauschenberg, Ugo Rondinone, Cy Twombly, and Andy Warhol, among others.

    Mudam
    Luxembourg

    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)

    GCAC / Grand Central Art Center
    Santa Ana, USA

    In the 1980s, a mere 234 warehouses dotted the landscape of the Inland Empire. Today, over 4,000 logistic centers have been implanted across the region in a rapid movement to bring commerce to the region. Once identified by its untouched land, the area has become enveloped by the sprawling network of warehouses that define the region’s skyline. As this part of Southern California quickly becomes the backbone of America’s road-based supply chain, it simultaneously introduces many repercussions to the daily lives of communities that call the Inland Empire home.

    When photographer Adraint Bereal graduated from the University of Texas, he self-published an impressive volume of portraits, personal statements, and interviews that explored UT’s campus culture and offered an intimate look at the lives of Black students matriculating within a majority white space. Bereal’s work was inspired by his first photo exhibition at the George Washington Carver Museum in Austin, entitled 1.7, that unearthed the experiences of the 925 Black men that made up just 1.7% of UT’s total 52,000 student body.

  • Michela de Mattei & Toby Christian: Flash_Looking
    May 17 – Jul 5, 2024
    Belmacz
    London, UK

    The phrase ‘flash-looking’ suggests something slick and shiny, a high-gloss finish, a smooth way of operating. As a synchronising of parts, the phrase also suggests a quick glance, a glimpse, something seen out of the of corner of one’s eye: “What’s that”. Flash_Looking, featuring Toby Christian and Michela de Mattei, works through these connotations and more. Brought in dialogue, Toby and Michela’s artworks speak with and across each other with an anachronistic elegance (more…)
