Festival Exister, dedicated to the theme of beauty, returns to Milan for the 12th consecutive autumn, taking place between the spaces of DANCEHAUSpiù and the Teatro Fontana.

The body is told in all its dimensions beyond the labels and discrimination of all kinds to rediscover, through some of the most representative artists of the Italian contemporary dance scene and beyond.

  • Karla Hiraldo Voleau: Another Love Story
    Publication
    Mörel
    International

    A year. That’s how long it’s been since Karla Hiraldo Voleau’s exhibition Another Love Story first opened at the MEP in Paris in 2022. A year is also the timeframe of the story chronicled in that project – a love story personal to KHV, which shifts abruptly from its climax to its end when she discovers that X, her lover, is leading a double life – a revelation that prompts the artist to question her certainties.

  • A Model
    Feb 9 – Sep 8, 2024
    Mudam
    Luxembourg

    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be.

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…)

  • How we remember tomorrow
    Feb 13 – Jun 15, 2024
    University of Queensland Art Museum
    Brisbane, Australia

    How we remember tomorrow celebrates storytelling across generations, through oceans and waterways and transcending eras and perspectives. Featured artists understand the watery spaces of our planet as ancestral archives: sources of knowledge that carry stories and cultural practices. Alongside their kin, they honour intergenerational narratives that are disseminated along ocean currents despite ongoing colonial legacies of forced displacement, homeland dispossession, indenture and the loss or dormancy of vital cultural practices.

  • Grey Crawford. Chroma, 1978–85, Vol 1
    Publication
    Beam Editions
    International

    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made. Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)
