Katharina Grosse at MASS MoCA, North Adams

Katharina Grosse is known for the vibrant palette and exuberant gestures of her large-scale canvases and raucous installations which merge painting, sculpture, and architecture. Wielding a spray gun instead of a brush, Grosse often paints directly on the walls, floors, or facades of her exhibition sites, altering the logic and scale of architecture itself. In

“Aftermath” at Taka Ishii, Kyoto

“A utopia minus a bottom, a place where the machines are idle, and the sun has turned to glass […]” -Robert Smithson, “A Tour of the Monuments of Passaic”, Artforum, October 1967. Taka Ishii Gallery Kyoto is pleased to announce Aftermath, a group exhibition curated by Simon Castets. The exhibition is based upon the twofold

Roger Hiorns at Aspen Art Museum, Aspen

British sculptor Roger Hiorns makes objects that explore transformation, both material and perceptual. Using divergent and often esoteric found materials—jet and automobile engines, plastinated cow brains, perfume, thistles—Hiorns collides the natural and man-made. His work often engages a variety of organic and chemical processes such as treating objects with substances like amyl nitrate, steroids, or

Ann Veronica Janssens at Galerie Micheline Szwajcer, Antwerp

 Ann Veronica Janssens’ artistic practice could be defined as an exploratory journey into the sensory experience of reality. Using different devices – installations, projections, immersive environments, urban interventions, sculptures –, she invites the viewer to cross the threshold into a new sensory space, on the borderline of dizziness and bedazzlement. In a register inspired by

Ida Ekblad at Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm

Bonniers Konsthall begins its autumn season with the young Norwegian artist Ida Ekblad, who holds her first exhibition in Sweden. Ida Ekblad creates new works especially for the exhibition, which covers everything from expressionist painting and poems to metal sculptures and large concrete reliefs. During summer, Ida Ekblad has been working on site in Stockholm

Cosima von Bonin at Kunsthaus Bregenz

Cosima von Bonin is one of the most well-known artists of her generation. Especially since her participation in the last documenta, at which a large number of the works was spread over the entire course of the show, she is no longer an insider-tip and so-called artist’s artist. Nevertheless it is not easy to classify

J. Parker Valentine at Taka Ishii, Kyoto

J. Parker Valentine is a post-conceptual draftsperson. While crafting artwork in a variety of media, Parker’s practice amounts to an elemental yet informed engagement with the act of mark-making. Endowed with a literal weight, in part a consequence of her often chosen carrier – MDF panel – and, contrastingly, informed by the act of erasure,

Group Show at AMP, Athens

AMP is pleased to present Ashes to Ashes, a group exhibition that explores the notions of antiquity and endless sources and taboos. Ashes to Ashes is a spectral assemblage of material facts and artefacts from Greece, carefully chosen from the antique store Martinos, and works from ten contemporary artists, where the old is exhibited back-to-back

Imi Knoebel at Thaddaeus Ropac, Salzburg

We take pleasure in announcing the opening exhibition in our new premises, devoted to Imi Knoebel (b 1940), probably the internationally best-known German abstract artist. We are showing a series of ten large-scale black-and-white works created in 2009 and 2010 as a contemplative contrast to his previous phase of excessive use of colour. They are

Liam Gillick at Kerlin Gallery, Dublin

The exhibition is a development of one component of his 2008 ‘retrospective’ exhibition ‘Three Perspectives and a Short Scenario’. An essential element of his reconsideration of how to formulate a retrospective was the production of new work for the Kunstverein in Munich. The resulting work: ‘Mirrored Image: A Volvo Bar’ (2008) takes place in a

David Thorpe at Meyer Riegger, Karlsruhe

David Thorpe´s visual language outlines antagonisms, expressed formally in the juxtaposition and interpenetration of geometrical and ornamental structures. Using media such as drawing, sculpture, installation and verse, the artist generates spatial situations – sometimes fictive ones – often accentuating the exhibition space as a component of his work with specific architectural elements. In our present
