  • Ida Tursic & Wilfried Mille @ La voix dissociée / nouveau festival, Centre Georges Pompidou


    22.02 - 12.03.2012

    LA VOIX DISSOCIÉE
    Une proposition de Paul Bernard

    « Derrière chaque voix entendue nous devinons une conscience, nous percevons un visage. Les voix du ventriloque possèdent cependant l'étrange pouvoir de s'émanciper de leur propre source. Qu'elles viennent ensuite trouver refuge dans d'autres corps pour leur donner la parole ou qu'elles continuent à errer tels des spectres pour nous hanter, ces voix dissociées troublent l'identification de leur émetteur. Que disent-elles ? » Paul Bernard

    Avec les oeuvres, films et documents de :
    Abbé de la Chapelle, Samuel Beckett, Horace Brunet, Angela Bulloch, Janet Cardiff et George Bures Miller, Julius Casserius, Denis Diderot, Franck Éon, Joseph Glanvill, Jean-Jacques Grandville, Eugène Hippolyte Forest, Mark Leckey, Laurent Montaron, Philippe Parreno, Vittorio Santoro, Laurie Simmons, Ida Tursic et Wilfried Mille, Wolfgang von Kempelen, Jeff Wall, Marnie Weber, William Wegman, Jordan Wolfson.

  • LIU WEI @ 'Liu Wei & Ai Weiwei', Faurschou Foundation, Beijing


    07.10.11 - 26.02.12

    The current show at Faurschou Foundation Beijing is the first show of works from the Faurschou Foundation collection. Thereby this exhibition is marking the transition from commercial gallery to art foundation that Faurschou has now undergone.

    The collection will thus be shown regularly, both in solo exhibitions of works by the artists' represented in the collection and in thematic exhibitions of works by several artists.

    For many years it has been the dream of Luise and Jens Faurschou to focus on the collection and its development, and the possibility of showing it. On the basis of the results and the collection created over the years, it has now become possible to realize this dream.

    Both exhibition spaces in Copenhagen and Beijing are based on private funding, but will be oriented towards - and open to - the general public.

    Currently on view at Faurschou Foundation Beijing are works from the collection by Ai Weiwei and Liu Wei.

  • MARK HANDFORTH, JEFF KOONS, RICHARD PRINCE, HAIM STEINBACH @ 'American Exuberance', Rubell Family Collection, Miami, FL


    30.11.2011 - 27.07.2012

    American Exuberance at the Rubell Family Collection/Contemporary Arts Foundation will include 64 artists and 190 artworks, 40 of which were made in 2011, many specifically for this exhibition.
    American Exuberance will occupy all 28 galleries in the 45,000 sq. ft. museum, and all works in the exhibition are drawn from the Rubell Family Collection/Contemporary Arts Foundation. A 244-page catalog will be available, with writings by 13 artists in the exhibition including Kathryn Andrews, Frank Benson, Hannah Greely, Thomas Houseago, Richard Jackson, Rashid Johnson, Nate Lowman, John Miller, Richard Prince, Sterling Ruby, Haim Steinbach, Ryan Trecartin, and Kaari Upson.

    Exhibition Statement


    In our efforts to understand the America we live in today, we turn toward contemporary art and artists. The 64 artists in American Exuberance, all citizens or residents of this country, are keen observers of American culture, economy and politics – whatever their country of origin.

    In its totality, the exhibition creates a portrait of the American condition. The artworks span the last few decades for context, with a focus on works made in today’s America.

    We asked a number of participating artists to comment on American Exuberance for the catalog. Many of them conceived original texts. The following is an excerpt from John Miller’s essay that has deeply informed our understanding of the subject: 

    “American exuberance is part myth and part reality… Paradoxically, exuberance is linked to stagnation, entropy and ruin. Its efflorescence becomes mirage-like. For the artists, these conditions are materials.”
