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.
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.”
MARK HANDFORTH: ROLLING STOP @ MOCA, MIAMI, FL
30.11.2011 - 19.02.2012
Inspired by everyday urban existence, Mark Handforth's sculptures are poetic, lyrical, and wryly comical objects that comment on daily life and human interaction. Through a corporeal engagement with scale and distortion of form, Handforth imbues works such as an illuminated street lamp resting on the ground, a weeping neon moon, and a monumental coat hanger with distinctive personalities. From November 30, 2011 through February 19, 2012, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), North Miami will present Mark Handforth: Rolling Stop, a major exhibition of the artist's work from 1998 to the present. The exhibition is curated by MOCA Executive Director and Chief Curator Bonnie Clearwater and is part of MOCA's Knight Exhibition Series.

Fernández, who was born and raised in Miami, is world renowned for her installations and public commissions that evoke the relationship between space and the body. Untitled (Pool), donated to MOCA by Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz, was the first work to be exhibited in the museum's Pavilion Gallery as part of its 1996 inaugural exhibition Defining the 90s: Consensus-Making in New York, Miami and Los Angeles.

HEDI SLIMANE 'CALIFORNIA SONG' @ MOCA PACIFIC DESIGN CENTER
12.11.2011 - 22.01.2012
The first West Coast solo museum exhibition of photographer Hedi Slimane’s work, California Song spans the photographer's California period and traces his explorations of cycles of urban youth culture and artistic communities, through installations of photographic essays, exhibitions, and publications.California Song spans the photographer's "California period" and traces his explorations of cycles of urban youth culture and artistic communities, through installations of photographic essays, exhibitions, and publications.
Slimane has achieved global recognition over the past decade for his discovery and presentation of emerging musicians and artists. His publications on London youth are among the first books published about the early days of the new British punk-rock movement at the beginning of this decade, capturing the birth of the first generation of Internet users, and redefining the concept of "fans" as an indie youth imagery that has developed globally through emerging social networks. Slimaneʼs widely followed photographic "diary," created in 2006, established and popularized an entirely new genre—the online photo diary.
Slimane has invented a new and oblique visual language to represent youth and reinvent the rock documentary. In his work, live performance is reduced to a minimal, photographic lexicon&mdash:a ritual black-and-white convention of signs. Still life photographs become almost liturgical—a singular, silent expression of youth.
"Hedi Slimane has created a new and fresh visual language for youth today," said MOCA Director Jeffrey Deitch. "His black-and-white images capture the essential expression of the emerging art, fashion, and music scenes around the world."
Slimane's exhibition at MOCA will be divided into two parts. An installation and a series of black-and-white print photographs from his California years will be presented on the ground floor, and a sonic, motion-photography installation, produced specifically for MOCA, will be featured on the second floor. The installation will reference a multi-projection, cubic, architectural format, which Slimane has constructed in previous exhibitions to present his photographs, using serial construction and repetition to create an archaic form of cinematic narration.
Slimane's allusive portraiture, in which photographs, portraits, and still life compositions are often signs or fragments of a portrait, will be projected in a repetitive, almost ritual, manner. The installation will also address "performance act," as defined for the first time in Slimane's photographic essay, Stage (2004), and will include a live performance space underneath the projection.
Select California bands, such as No Age, will contribute to the installation, using a fragmentary sound system, and composing panoramic scores&mdash:extended, visual song formats—which will form a dialogue with and define a sonic vocabulary for the photographs.
