Sep 21 – Oct 15, 2023
steirischer herbst
Graz, Austria

The 56th edition of steirischer herbst festival turns to character-based storytelling to show how people navigate today’s moral gray zones and deal with the demons surrounding them.

This year, the festival brings together over forty works. Next to performances, the herbst cabaret, artist talks, and discussions, four exhibitions take visitors on a journey of discovery through the city and its history.

steirischer herbst ’23 opens with a performance by Lulu Obermayer on Schloßberg. On the first weekend, performances by Mateja Bučar, Adrienn Hód / HODWORKS, Michael Portnoy, and Giacomo Veronesi await the audience – all of which are new commissions.

The opening days of this year’s steirischer herbst begin at the highest point of central Graz, the Schloßberg, and create an imaginary topography of the city. Ceremonies continue with headline performances and discussions, and the exhibitions are open throughout. Come to Graz and be part of the festivities!

    Baert Gallery
    Los Angeles, USA

    Baert Gallery is pleased to present You Already Know, an exhibition of new paintings by Reuben Gordon, his second solo show with the gallery. In this series, Gordon’s painterly range in oil, pastel, and charcoal limns processes expressionistic and mathematical, photographic and gestural. Images emerge from a period of transition and experimentation that meander from the Pacific Coast Highway to the Florida Everglades and Seoul, South Korea, as the artist makes his way home to New York City.

  • Helen Cammock: I Will Keep My Soul

    Convening polyphonous voices from past and present, I Will Keep My Soul is an orchestral layering of photography, historical documents, poetry and interviews, all rooted in the social history, geography and community of New Orleans. In this prismatic artist’s book, UK-based artist Helen Cammock traverses the city, rendering her observations and encounters into reverberant texts and percipient photographic images that tender the city’s invisible histories.
