Upcoming

Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art

4. October – 24. November 2019
Group Show, Coventry, Coventry

The highly anticipated second Coventry Biennial will unfold across the city from the 4th October to the 24th November 2019 and we invite people to learn, look, make, talk, think and walk with us.

The biennial’s title this year is The Twin and it comprises a series of exhibitions, events and activities about relationships.

We are an international city; Coventry and Volgograd, Russia, were the first modern twin cities in the world and this year marks the 75th anniversary of that historic bond of friendship.

The core programme of The Twin will unfold across the city in medieval and modernist buildings as well as in artist studios, galleries and museums. We will be exhibiting new and existing artworks by individual artists, duos and groups from Coventry, across the UK and from many of our international twin cities as well as other international locations. We are delighted to be exhibiting the artists listed below and will be announcing a small number of additional practitioners over the coming weeks and months:

Isobel Adderley & Jazz Moreton, Tully Arnot, Art & Language, Jonny Bark, Aram Bartholl, Jordan Baseman, James Birkin, Simon & Tom Bloor, James Bridle, Lorsen Camps, Paul Chan & Badlands Unlimited, David Cheeseman, James Clarkson, Anna Columbine, Maud Cotter, Paul Crook, Matthew Darbyshire, Joseph DeLappe, Lisa Denyer, Jacqueline Donachie, Caitriona Dunnett, EVOL, Anne Forgan, Dylan Fox, Darryl Georgiou & Rebekah Tolley, Zuza Golinska, Noémie Goudal, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Mona Hatoum, Corey Hayman, Nicky Hirst, Clare Holdstock, Fred Hubble, Andrew Jackson, Juneau Projects, Navi Kaur, Smirna Kulenović, Liz Lake, Ollie Ma, Ioana Marinescu, Tony McClure, Lorna Mills, Anna Molska, MTAA, Alexandra Muller, Edie Jo Murray, Uriel Orlow, OUTLINE & Smirna Kulenović, Paper Rad, Bharti Parmar, Parmar & Piper, Partisan Social Club, Mathew Parkin, Matthew Picton, Duncan Poulton, Adele Mary Reed, Lis Rhodes, Rafaël Rozendaal, Ana Rutter, Richard Scott, Shirana Shahbazi, Larissa Shaw, Thomson & Craighead, Leonid Toprover, Chidera Ugada, Mhairi Vari, Nilupa Yasmin

Immortality – The Ural Bienniale

12. September – 1. December 2019
Group Show, uralbiennale.ru, Ekaterinburg

The Ural Industrial Biennial is the largest regional art project with international participation among those existing on the territory of the Russian Federation. The Biennial takes place at former industrial and non-exhibition spaces in Ekaterinburg and other cities of the Ural region.

In its 5th edition, the Ural Biennial explores concepts behind the Immortality, both secular and sacred; it is seen as a powerful utopist idea, as technocratic obscurity, as a symbolic tool and as a condition which might cause evident ethical schisms.

SFMOMA: snap+share
transmitting photographs from mail art to social networks
March 30–August 4, 2019
https://www.sfmoma.org/exhibition/snap/

The exhibition snap+share gives visitors a new way to visualize — and experience — how photographs have become so ubiquitous in our daily lives. Whether through early examples of 1960s and ’70s mail art, physical piles of pictures uploaded to the Internet over a 24-hour period, or a working refrigerator that allows participatory meme-making, visitors can trace the evolution of sharing photographs.

Spanning the history of mail art to social networks, the show presents a variety of artists working in various media, from framed paper-based art to immersive installations. Some of these artists include On Kawara, Ray Johnson, Moyra Davey, Erik Kessels, Corinne Vionnet, and David Horvitz. Exploring how networks are created through the act of sending images out into the world, this exhibition reveals just how those networks have changed in the age of the Internet.

curated by Clement Cheroux
with: Thomas Bachler, Ray Johnson, Aram Bartholl, On Kawara, Joseph Beuys, Erik Kessels , Moyra Davey, William Larson, Jan Dibbets, Eva and Franco Mattes, Walker Evans, Peter Miller, Jeff Guess, Ken Ohara, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Stephen Shore, Kate Hollenbach, Endre Tót, David Horvitz, Corinne Vionnet

Beyond Contemporary Art book by Etan Jonathan Ilfeld

December 19, 2012

I am glad to be featured in this very diverse refreshing overview on contemporary art.

Beyond Contemporary Art

Etan Jonathan Ilfeld

250 x 250 mm (9¾ x 9¾ in)
240 pages with 150 illustrations
Paperback with flaps
ISBN 978-1-908126-22-1
October 2012

£24.95   €29.95   US$39.95

In this book, the author surveys the key concepts and ideas that have reverberated throughout the art world in the last decade through studying the artists who have created them. From blockbuster museum exhibitions to influential art fairs and art-stars, the ever-expanding contemporary art world has been increasingly integrated into popular culture. While highlighting established artists such as Gerhard Richter, the book also includes emerging and mid-career artists whose work ranges widely. Artists such as Jeremy Wood who plots his movement across the globe through GPS tracking, Tatsuo Miyajima who does digital light displays, Eduardo Kac who does transgenic bio-art or Santiago Sierra who paid workers to shift a heavy rock back and forth are among the international artists included in this book. Often controversial, these artists push the boundaries of what would traditionally be considered art.

Article Stuttgarter Zeitung

“Wo, bitte, geht’s zur realen Welt?” by Ricarda Stiller, 11.12.2012 08:00 Uhr
https://www.stuttgarter-zeitung.de/inhalt.internetkritik-wo-bitte-geht-s-zur-realen-welt.54006f04-4fa8-444f-b841-23a9a99a9f72.html

excerpt:

Was macht das Internet mit uns?

Mit dem Internet potenziert sich die Medienkritik in dem Maße, wie sich das Medium in alle erdenklichen Lebenssituationen ausbreitet. Vom Überall-Internet sind wir nicht mehr weit entfernt, vielleicht ist es sogar schon da. Nur an den Endgeräten wird noch gearbeitet. Längst besteht die Möglichkeit, dass der Kaffeevollautomat sich seine Software eigenständig über das Web aktualisiert. Konnte man sich vor zehn Jahren kaum eine Verwendung für Tablet-Computer vorstellen, wird man sich in zehn Jahren kaum noch vorstellen können, dass man seinen Alltag ohne einen Tablet-PC bewältigen kann.

Die Frage, was der Computer, das Internet, die sozialen Netzwerke oder Computerspiele mit uns anrichten, stellen sich nicht nur Soziologen, Medienanalytiker, Kulturwissenschaftler oder Psychologen, die zu diesem Thema den Büchermarkt fluten. Den aus Bremen stammenden und in Berlin lebenden Medienkünstler Aram Bartholl beschäftigt dieses Thema derart, dass es sich in fast allen seinen Arbeiten in irgendeiner Form wiederfindet.

'Home Entertainment'

December 10, 2012

I am very pleased to announce the latest DVD vol.4  for the install at the MMI. Was fun to dig through big stacks of DVDs to make this 78 chapters video DVD. Enjoy! 🙂

‘Home Entertainment’ Aram Bartholl. 2012, 31 mins. video DVD.
DVD Dead Drop vol.4 at the Museum of Moving Image, NYC
December 7, 2012–January 31, 2013

The reign of the DVD is over, and with it the era of the extra. Before home entertainment was streamed from the cloud, movies came on DVDs that contained more than just the featured attraction. Studios added bonus content like behind-the-scenes documentaries and audio commentaries to make DVDs more desirable to consumers.

But DVDs also came with undesirable extras that were universally frustrating to captive audiences waiting for their movie to begin: unskippable content. Trailers for upcoming movies, promotional spots, and other unwanted clips all found their way immovably in front of featured attractions.

Home Entertainment is a collection of media found on DVDs from around the world that you always wanted to skip, but couldn’t: international copyright warnings, home entertainment publisher logos, studio and distributor bumpers, anti-piracy propaganda, and more. This time, however, all the clips are chaptered, so you can finally skip them.
