with Andrew Helton Spring 2021 | Virtual Program | 3/15/2021 – 4/24/2021 http://www.artslettersandnumbers.com/the-earth-of-part-two-a-moment-is-a-reckoning Why reelaborate today a concept of the archive? In a single configuration, equally technical and political, ethical and juridical?…No one ever renounces—and this is the unconscious itself—the appropriation of power over the document, over its detention, retention or its interpretation. -Jacques Derrida Reports that say something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don’t know we don’t know. -Donald Rumsfeld (on alleged weapons of mass destruction in Iraq) A moment is a rupture. It is a point at which the machinery (whether it’s time, domestic life, politics, civil obedience, work, health, etc.) we are all a part of breaks. Something becomes an object at the moment of rupture, when it is no longer (however briefly) a part of the machine. This is why moments become so important to us. It is a kind of freedom. A moment is a chance to feel as […]
Condemned to canvas, pencils, wood and words Lilo C. Karsten Rahulla Torabi Paul Hirsch Daniel Scheffel Four artists work with juvenile delinquents In September and October 2020, four artists from the Frankfurt artists’ association EULENGASSE worked with young offenders, a project developed in cooperation with the Jugend-Kultur-Werkstatt Falkenheim Gallus e.V. (JKWF). The art projects were carried out one after the other in their sculpture workshop in Frankfurt’s Gutleutviertel. Each artist worked with young people for up to six afternoons and was therefore available for the young people in addition to the artistic media of the sculpture workshop. The artistic works that the young people produced in the four sub-projects are presented and offered for sale in this exhibition in the EULENGASSE exhibition space in Frankfurt/Germany. A publication and a podcast series will accompany the exhibition. The project is part of »Participate NOW!«, the 2020 annual theme of the art association and exhibition space EULENGASSE.
March 8, 2021 (Intl Womens Day) 2pm PST Archival Content Report Instagram videochat shares archival content from past exhibiting artists of the PKULTRA franchise. Examples of archival types include this Visual Art Source article: Rumi Koshino, “Some Songs Have No Words,” 2011, archival inkjet print on paper, installation view, dimensions variable Continuing through December 31, 2011 Rumi Koshino’s site-specific installation, Some Songs Have No Words, muses on the most salient features of Form/Space Atelier. Koshino’s paper pyramids echo the watery patterns of the gallery’s linoleum floor and its well-aged wooden steps. Form/Space Atelier is an odd venue: it’s dominated by a central staircase that quickly descends to a small, dead-end landing. Koshino’s series of small paper sculptures are constructed from digital photographs of the 1960s-era flooring and the shabby stairs. Turquoise pyramids sit on the floor, echoing and blending into the pattern of the linoleum. Rows of pyramids trail up the stairs, and as they do their pattern and coloring changes to match the color and texture of the stairs themselves. This quiet, well conceived installation uses transparent technique and execution to highlight the unusual architecture of the gallery. Step carefully, however, as the pyramids are not fixed to the […]
Last week marked a quiet opening of “Through the Looking Glass” an outdoor art walk/exhibition in public space, organized by @est.art.foundation. This show brings together a collection of light and video based work illuminating the windows and alcoves of a defunct factory in the city of Leiden, Netherlands. “Through the Looking Glass” will screen nightly until March 7th. COVID rules apply. Doors remain closed. Just to be viewed by passers-by walking or cycling the “Singelpark”. A gift to the city. Through the looking glass is about wonder and amazement, about awareness and seeing through. From outside to inside and, about light in darkness. Artists: Jos Agasi (Leiden), Anneke Bosma (Amsterdam), Barthel Brussee (Leiden), Sándor Hötte (Amsterdam), Sarah Klein (San Francisco), Mathias Krissmer (Freiburg) and David Kwan (San Francisco).
Solidarity at this difficult time is an important issue! “Quarantine Exhibition” is a virtual exhibition during fragile times. The COVID-19 pandemic changes our lives significantly day after day. Despite the current crisis, art is demonstrating its force. In April, after lockdown measures were put in place around the world, our immediate impulse was to bring together artists, friends, peers and professionals from any geographic location, with no limits on age, nationality, or career stage, through the format of a truly open, open call. The artists were motivated to submit a statement and an artwork in any medium of their choice, transmitting their immediate impressions during quarantine. With a total of 445 submissions, the open call shifted into a plethora of voices and impulses, as well as a cartography of the global sentiment. With a variety of strong and compelling works, the selection process became simultaneously exciting and challenging. Space52 and the selection committee have selected 60 artists that will be included in the exhibition. Selected international artists are invited to engage in a series of online exhibitions, eventually staging a gallery exhibition. Paying tribute to the solidarity shown by artists and institutions, at a time when art is suffering fully […]
