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.

Strike Now!!

11. – 15. September 2019
Solo Show, panke.gallery, Berlin

Strike Now is a platform for discussion and exhibition about today’s working conditions in the so called ‘gig economy’. The rise of service oriented Internet companies like Uber, Amazon and Deliveroo etc created massive amounts app based self employment under often harsh conditions. Is this the new slavery of the post digital Internet commercial revolution? In which ways can workers counteract the algorithmic chains of start-up venture capital? With  lectures, a panel and an exhibition Strike Now at panke.gallery will examine these and further questions. A project by Aram Bartholl, funded by Stiftung Kunstfonds.

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.

Hurt me plenty

August 22, 2014

choose-skill-level-hurt-me-plenty-1000

I’m pleased to announce my upcoming solo show at DAM gallery. New works!! CU there!!

Aram Bartholl – Hurt me plenty

Exhibition: 13th September – 1st November 2014
DAM Gallery, Berlin

Preview: 12th September 2014, 7 – 9 PM
7:30: Introduction by Olia Lialina, Professorin New Media at the Merz Akademie Stuttgart.

In his solo show Aram Bartholl exhibits a new series of works inspired by the questions and developments engaging humankind’s ‘entry’ into the digital realm and the role of the first person as ‘shooter’. Bartholl deconstructs stereotypes about pixel imaging with unique large-scale works that are subtly combined with a series of pieces about issues of privacy, surveillance and net neutrality. With this exhibition, Bartholl proposes a new discourse that challenges the current debates about surveillance versus the seemingly antiquated ideas and images of ‘cyberspace’.

Performance during the Preview:

BYOD – Bring Your Own Drive, and crush it.

Disused hard drives of PCs, laptops and servers imply a high security risk. DATALOVE prevents that discarded hard drives with sensible data fall into wrong hands. During the Preview of the exhibition the visitors are invited to bring their old data storage media and get them destroyed with a hardware crusher as part of Bartholl´s performance DATALOVE.

Aram Bartholl – Hurt me plenty

Ausstellung: 13. September – 1. November 2014
DAM Gallery, Berlin

Preview: 12. September 2014, 19 – 21 Uhr
19:30: Einführung von Olia Lialina, Professorin New Media an der Merz Akademie Stuttgart.

In der Einzelausstellung zeigt Aram Bartholl eine Reihe neuer Arbeiten inspiriert von den Fragen rund um die Entstehung von First Person Skootern und dem ‘Eintritt’ des Menschen in das Digitale. Bartholl dekonstruiert mit großformatigen Arbeiten Pixelstereotypen und kombiniert diese auf subtile Weise mit den aktuell dringenden Themenkomplex rund um Privatsphäre, Überwachung und Neutralität im Netz. Die scheinbar antiquierten Ideen und Bilder von ‘Cyberspace’ versus der aktuellen Überwachungsdebatte werden in einer Ära der digitalen Omnipräsenz neu zur Diskussion gestellt.
Performance zur Eröffnung der Ausstellung:

BYOD – Bring Your Own Drive, and crush it.

Ausgediente Festplatten von PCs, Laptops und Servern bergen ein hohes Sicherheitsrisiko. DATALOVE verhindert, dass ausrangierte Festplatten-Laufwerke mit sensiblen Daten in falsche Hände geraten. Zur Ausstellungseröffnung sind die Besucher herzlich eingeladen im Rahmen von Bartholls Arbeit DATALOVE ihre alten Datenträger mitzubringen und vor Ort mit einem Hardware-Crusher zu zerstören.

STUTTGARTER ZEITUNG
Nr. 176 | Samstag, 2. August 2014

Der international agierende Künstler Aram Bartholl erklärt im Interview, weshalb er gerne digitale Symbole nachbaut und in die reale
Welt stellt. Er ist der Ansicht, dass man sich durchaus mal die Frage stellen sollte, was man den ganzen Tag am Computer macht.

thx @ Ricarda Stiller!
