White Cube Bemondsey- Until April 07, 2019 London (England)
You are inches from Tracey Emin’s face. You’re right there on the pillow next to her. Watching her desperately wait for sleep to finally come. Emin suffers from insomnia. And takes selfies as she helplessly wrestles with it. She’s printed them two metres high. And pasted them across the walls here. On the one hand, they’re terrifying. Ridiculous, even a little stupid. But on the other, they’re… really good. They tower over you. Suffocating you in their bleary, angry, frustrated misery. It feels like she’s collapsing with exhaustion around you. It just hits you so hard.

It’s like a bouldering centre run by an eccentric artist. The work implies that a degree of physical effort. The climbing – can lead to a new version of you.

Individuals en masse. Without clothing, grouped, are transformed into a new form. The bodies extend into and over the landscape as a substance. Tunick poses scenes in which the battle of nature against culture. Develops with several backdrops. From a civic center to a sandstorm in the desert. Man and woman return to a state of pre-industrial existence.
These group masses, which do not underline sexuality. Become abstractions that challenge or reconfigure the points of view of nudity and privacy. His work also refers to the complex issue of presenting art. In permanent or temporary public spaces.

3 Punts Gallery – Until Feb 09, 2019 Barcelona (Spain)
You can see the works. Surround them, smell them. Get close to see the details. You can find the artistic and technical virtuosity. The defects of execution. You can discuss with your neighbour the immorality of the works. The nakedness of a body. The numbing simplicity of a piece or the gratuity of an element. You can recognize the exhibited artists. Talk about the famous pieces and the new ones. You can mention anything you want on the social network. You can photograph, record, draw on paper a sketch of the works on display.

Cleraring Gallery – Dec 22, 2018 New-York (USA)
POSTPARTUM is an exhibition of 7 new paintings by Aaron Garber-Maikovska. Despite their explosive color. The genesis of these paintings was a gradual process for Garber-Maikovska. And something of a radical departure for how the artist approaches the medium.

This past September. As happened, the baby arrived the same week. Of the opening and Garber-Maikovska. flew home to assist his wife during the child’s delivery.

Pondick’s new works feature semi-transparent clear blocks encasing. Her head rendered in brilliant contrasting color. The heads appear in various orientations. Sometimes even floating partway out of their evanescent domain.
The blocks have subtle contours. And worked edges, paying fealty to the sculptor’s hand. They are made from resin, acrylic and an epoxy modeling compound. New materials for Pondick. Who experimented endlessly to achieve a harmony of form, color. And emotional depth. One indelible quality of the new work is the use of sonorous color. Each work features a dominant hue and no more than four different colors. For which the work is titled. These are intimate and yet powerful works that shift with our positioning.
Marc Straus Gallery – 299 Grand St, New York, NY 10002, USA
La casa incendida – Until Jan05, 2019 Madrid (Spain)
Jeanne Tripier (Paris, 1869 – Neuilly-sur-Marne, 1944). Remains relatively unknown in Spain, But her artwork is undeniably fascinating. Full of lyricism, her work was created during the decade. She spent in an asylum in Neuilly-sur-Marne. Where she died. The artist’s self-taught nature.
The link between her visual works and embroideries. And her mental illness, her psychopathic-megalomaniacal outbursts. And the connection with her matter-rich manifestations. Or reincarnation as other individuals – such as Joan of Arc – in her personal battle. As an interplanetary vigilante all contrive to make her a truly fascinating character.

Anna Condo – Reflections
Galerie Joseph – Until Nov 04, 2018, Paris (France)
Anna is a French director and photographer, born in Armenia, living in New York. She began an acting career, then in 1988 turned to photography. In 1989. Anna moved to the United States and worked on many projects.
She started writing and making movies. During this period, Anna continued to take photographs and collaborated with many artists. In 1998, she published her first book “AH Allen,” a powerful tribute to her friend the poet Allen Ginsberg. Since 2013, Anna has been focusing on flower photography. Is it a snub to this society that is constantly reinventing the rules? Or simply the observation that the real is elsewhere? Some view the flower as naive. Anna’s works prove the opposite.
These images that can be compared to portraits, impose respect. Indeed here the flower is no longer fragile. She is strong, sometimes arrogant. She symbolizes this nature that only bends to the elements. A real break in the world in which we live in. The flower is a lady first and foremost. A feminist before its time. A broth of culture, stories, and emotions. P. Achdjian (“The storm revives flowers” C.Baudelaire).
Galerie Joseph – 123 rue de Turenne, 75003 Paris, (France)

As part of an exchange with Berlin’s Tanya Leighton Gallery. Bureau hosts Jonas Lipps. A German artist who works in watercolor, casein. Collage and colored pencil on found scraps paper or cardboard. His imagery seems just as throwaway. With jumbles of color blocks and surreal scatterings of cartoonish. Or naive imagery—which. According to the gallery, deal with “social order. Shopping centers. Transportation networks. Nation states. Jails and schools”. The last seems especially relevant. Given that Lipps’s style resembles a grade-schooler’s. A closer look, however.

Bureau Gallery – 178 Norfolk St New York 10002 (USA)
Serpentine Gallery – Until Feb 10, 2019 London (England)
French conceptualist Pierre Huyghe has dragged the Serpentine into an abandoned future. The images on the screens were imagined by human brains. But captured by computers, Now, deep neural networks are shaping and reshaping the images. It looks like a computer trying desperately to decode human thought. With the speed the images are going, you get a gross. Growing sense of fear that they’re only moments away from decoding how we work – the question is, what then?
Serpentine Gallery – Kensington Gardens, London W2 3XA, Royaume-Uni
Casey Kaplan gallery – Until Oct 20, 2018 New York (US)
Eisler employs a soft-focus style of photorealism that recalls the work of Gerhard Richter. Several paintings of candles here even seem to pay homage to the German artist’s treatment of the same subject. But as the show title explains. Eisler canvases play “riffs” on filmmaker Derek Jarman’s 1986 biopic of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, the obstreperous 16th-century Mannerist who. When he wasn’t brawling, was busy re-inventing painting. Eisler bases her canvases on stills from the movie. Isolating particular details in close ups that square a peculiar circle. In which an artist makes paintings about a film about an artist who paints.
Casey Kaplan Gallery – 121 W 27th St, New York, NY 10001, US

Matthew Marks Gallery – Until Oct 27, 2018 (New York)
Suellen Rocca is one of the original members of the Hairy Who. A group of six visionary artists who first exhibited together in Chicago in 1966. Early in her career Rocca developed a unique vocabulary of symbols. Wedding rings, purses, and palm trees — inspired by advertising imagery. In her paintings and drawings she often arranged these images in repetitive patterns. Creating compositions that have been likened to modern hieroglyphs. When asked about the source of her imagery. Rocca has cited “the cultural icons of beauty. And romance expressed by the media that promised happiness to young women of that generation.” Since 1980 her work has increasingly combined this iconography with allusions to the body. Animals, and plant life.
Matthew Marks Gallery – 523 W 24th St, New York, NY 10011, US
Clearing Gallery – Sept 13/Nov 04, 2018 New-York (US)
Say this for Black’s colorful abstractions. They are visually punchy affairs. Their all-over skeins of curvilinear shapes. And figurative fragments evoke a fizzy mix of Jazz Age. And mid-century modernism that swings somewhere between WPA mural and Mad Menoffice art.
Clearing Gallery – 396 Johnson Ave Brooklyn 11206, NY
Parasol Unit Foundation – Sept 19 / Dec 09, 2018 London (England)
Latex casts. Drag your mind out the gutter and discover the slippery. Translucent artworks of Heidi Bucher. The Swiss artists made a career from creating latex imprints of houses. Clothing, bodies… lots of things. Really. The ‘Häutungen’ (or ‘skinnings’). Hang down like great rubbery ghosts or sliding memories turned into sculptures.
Parasol Unit Foundation – 14 Wharf Rd, Hoxton, London N1 7RW, England
Marlborough Contemporary – Sept 13 / Oct 09, 2018 New York (USA)
The Directors of Marlborough Gallery. Are pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings
by the renowned Spanish artist Juan Genovés. The exhibition will begin on September 13th and remain on view through October 9th, 2018.
Genovés creates his distinctive figures from thickly applied acrylic paint that protrudes from the surfaces. The lines that reinforce the picture plane can be read as breaks in the image. Or as topographies encouraging the directional movement of the crowd. The cast shadow is an important element. With each figure being anchored by its unique shadow. In addition, beads and other small objects found by the artist are attached to the figures on the canvas. And contribute to the individuality and character of each.
Marlborough Contemporary – 545 W 25th St New York
Lawrence Abu Hamdan

Chisenhale Gallery – 64 Chisenhale Road – London
Nathaniel Mary Quinn
Salon 94 gallery – Sept 07/27 Oct, 2018 New-York (USA)
Quinn’s portraits of his neighbors in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Resemble a combination of collage, Francis Bacon and scrambled identikit police sketchs. Facial features are fractured and mismatched. As if cobbled together from different people. But Quinn’s subjects are singular. Drawn from memory in a way that reflects upon its ever-shifting hold on the past.
Salon 94 – 243 Bowery New York 10002
Colony: Frontier Wars
NGV Australia – Until Sept 02, 2018 Melbourne (Australia)
It’s frequently said that Australians don’t know or care much about their own history. And have little understanding of what occurred during colonisation. But the artists who were creating work on both sides of the black-white divide captured extraordinary landscapes. Scenes of colonial developments and scenes of conflict that offer a colourful glimpse into our frequently dark past. These dual exhibitions show the collision of western and Indigenous art. And trace how an Australian artistic expression came to be.
The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia – Federation Square, Flinders St & Russell Street, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australie
Marvin Gardens Gallery – Until Aug 26, 2018 New York
This Tucson native’s funky cartoonish. Figure paintings are consistent with a widespread trend among millennial artists who raid outsider art. Along with the more obscure reaches of pop culture. For their work. What sets DeDecker apart. However, are thickly built up surfaces collaged. With an all-over debris field that comprises slats from discarded venetian blinds. Plastic toys, crushed soda cans and presumably anything. Else he can get his hands on. The images limned over this mess include. Characters who appear to be cavorting with joy. Though you get the nagging sensation that their exuberance may be irrational if not delusional.
Marvin Gardens Gallery – 1532 Decatur St Ridgewood, Queens New York
Kenji Taki Gallery – Until Sep 15, 2018 Tokyo (Japan)
Born Osaka, Japan 1972. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Over the course of the past three decades, Chiharu Shiota has built a stellar international career, exhibiting widely in major museums across Europe, Asia and Australia.

Simon Gallery – Until Aug 30, 2018 London
As part of its Viewing Room programme. Simon Lee Gallery is pleased to present Wormhole a solo exhibition by New York-based artist Leelee Kimmel. Her first in the UK. In her latest work, Kimmel presents a series of large-scale abstract paintings that are confrontational in both colour and dimension, exploring themes of creation and destruction. The immersive element of her work is further developed through sculptural pieces. And a five-minute Virtual Reality work that invites total submergence. Into the deep space of Kimmel’s creative world.
The large-format paintings feature graphic shapes. Clustered in thick multilayered pools of bright acrylic paint. Which weave across fields of solid white or black. The paintings are imbued with a restless energy. And freedom that is intrinsically linked with how the artist creates her works. The resulting compositions deliberately move in and out of representation. Sensuous and strict. Gloss and matte. Tangled and full. The complex patch-work of imagery. Consisting of crosshatch and opposing vector-like lines. And patterns as well as interrupting biomorphic forms. Has an otherworldly quality. Forceful and nervous lines are reminiscent of artists such as Basquiat and Twombly. While the uncanny worlds and dreamlike atmospheres created by the artist emerge into a sort of mutant realism.
Simon Lee gallery – 12 Berkeley St, Mayfair, London W1J 8DT, Royaume-Uni

It’s been 66 years since Gertrude Abercrombie (1909–1977) last exhibited in NYC. So it’s been awhile since New Yorkers.

Abercrombie’s compositions. Typically done in oils on masonite. Feature cryptic landscapes and interiors. That serve as backdrops for the artist’s personal iconography of doors. Cats. Owls and ladders. Which she often combines with her own self making mysterious appearances. Fraught with psychological drama.
Karma Gallery – 188 E 2nd St, New York, NY 10009, États-Unis
Axel Vervoordt Gallery – Until Sep 01, 2018 (Hong Kong)
An exhibition by Italian artist Marco Tirelli, featuring medium and small size paintings specifically created for the show.
Tirelli’s artistic philosophy consists in geometrical figures. Rectangular and square structures delicately suspended. In a tension between light and darkness. His enigmatic forms reflect. A number of Tirelli’s enduring preoccupations with time. Space and what lies beyond.
With their different architectural features and arresting contrasts of lights and shadows. Nuances of modern- sfumato. Tthe works evoke a fluctuation between appearance. And disappearance which epitomize the artist’s vision – a search for the mystery of the visible and its concomitant inner reflection. And his aspiration to elicit active sensorial and mental participation from the viewer. “I’m fascinated by surfaces and what is on the other side of them.“ says the artist.

Anton Kern Gallery – Until Aug 31, 2018
Organized by L.A. curator Ali Subotnick. “The Party” takes its name from 1968 comedy that starred comic genius Peter Sellars. As a bumbling (what other type of Sellars character is there?). Indian actor, wrecking havoc at a lavish Hollywood party in an equally outlandish house. Despite the fact that Sellars played the role in brown face (a definite no-no today). The movie is considered a cult classic, mainly because of its experimental, improvisational style.
*Subotnick asked some of the artists to create works that took cues from the film. Maurizio Cattelan, for example. Also, contributes a live parrot making noises in the gallery. An idea that seems inspired by a moment when Sellars’s character makes an abortive attempt to feed the host’s macaw. Which literally sits in a giant gilded cage. While it’s hard to judge whether. Hence, the show matches the subversive humor of Blake’s mid-century masterpiece. Finally, he 15 artists here (who, beside Cattelan. Also includes Martin Creed and Sean Landers) certainly give it a shot.

Ronnie van Hout
Buxton Contemporary – Until October23, 2018 Melbourn (Australia)
Ronnie van Hout has been creating aliens, robots and lonely figures for more than 30 years, confounding and thrilling art fans in equal measure with his uniquely funny brand of existential absurdism. He’s best known for creating sculptures that depict himself as a childlike figure, but has created work across video, photography, installation, sculpture and text.
This exhibition marks Buxton Contemporary’s first survey of an artist’s work since it opened earlier this year. There’ll be more than 20 of Van Hout’s works on display, drawn from both private collections and major public institutions. The works take inspiration from sci-fi, cults, classic cinema and even art history. The exhibition also features two brand new works.

Conceptual Art And Photography (1960 – 1980)
Gallery Richard Saltoun – until 25 Aug, 2018 London
Forget how many words a picture is worth; what about how many ideas it’s worth? This neat little show is filled with art where ideas are captured in images. The thing you see isn’t necessarily the work, but a representation of the concept… which is the work. You follow? It’s conceptual art through photography, essentially.
It’s slippery and complicated, sure. But take Dennis Oppenheim’s ‘Reading Position for Second Degree Burn’. The top half of the image features the artist lying on a beach, a book splayed open on his chest. The bottom half is him five hours later, burnt to porcine pink perfection, save for a square of pure white skin where the book had been. It’s not really a photo, it’s an idea.
The same goes for lots of the work here. Like Eleanor Antin’s series of images of black boots in different parts of the USA. The galoshes represent displaced people, a powerful political statement. But what makes this piece work isn’t the images, but the way they were distributed – shared as postcards, becoming a piece of mail art in the process. Again, it’s the idea that wins.
There are clever works here by Marcel Broodthaers and Hans-Peter Feldmann as well. But too much here strays from conceptual art and its relationship to photography into documentation of performance art. It may seem like not much of a distinction, but it makes a difference. One captures an idea, a concept, the other is documentation of something that happened once. There’s nothing terribly wrong with that, but it is a lot less interesting.

Patrick Willocq (French)
Songs of the Walés
F22 Foto Space – July 11/28, 2018 – Hong Kong (China)
Acclaimed French photographer Patrick Willocq brings to Hong Kong his stunning photos captured in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Willocq’s works are a result of a unique collaboration with the Walé, Congolese pygmy women who are first-time mothers, and transforms and adapts traditional dances and songs during the mother’s seclusion into photographs. Taken from hand-built stages, Willocq’s images are stunning and visceral, reflecting the experiences of these young mothers as closely as possible and to share with the world this symbolic rite of passage.

Sony World Photography Awards 2018
The Willy-Brandt-Haus – 13 July/09sept 2018 Berlin
The Sony World Photography Award was launched in 2007 and has been presented annually since then. Every year numerous photographers take part in the competition. In 2018, with Candida Höfer, a German photographer was awarded the “Outstanding Contribution to Photography” for the first time.
The best in contemporary photography
The exhibition honours works from the entire spectrum of photography: whether art student, amateur or professional photographer, photos are shown from every perspective and in every style. British photographer Alys Tomlinson Pilger documents her travels in striking black and white photographs, Samuel Bolduc follows the pollution caused by plastic in his pictures and Balazs Gardi shows the sporting battle for a headless calf in Afghanistan.

Space Refugee (2016–18)
The British Interplanetary – 9–15 July 2018 London
Space Refugee is a multi-media installation based on Muhammed Ahmed Faris, the first Syrian cosmonaut to travel to the Mir space station in 1987. The project follows Faris’ journey from popular hero, to supporter of the opposition movement against Assad, to his current life as a refugee in Turkey. Presented in the manner of an old fashioned space museum, this installation combines faux commemorative artefacts and a virtual reality work designed by the artist with elements from the British Interplanetary Society’s own collection.
At the core of the installation is a video in which Faris relates the difficulties of the journey out of Syria, then speaks with fellow refugees about the possibility of returning to their homeland. If that proves impossible, he says, “I hope we can rebuild cities for them in space, where there is freedom and dignity and where there is no tyranny, no injustice.” The video goes on to include interviews with NASA scientists, air and space law specialists, and architects discussing the plausibility of a refugee colony in space.
Halil Altındere (b. 1971, Turkey) has a wide-ranging practice that includes video, sculpture, photography, installation, performance, curating and publishing. He often employs an ironic approach to challenge political, cultural and social systems. In his early works he reversed conceptions of nation-state and authority in Turkey by utilising everyday objects such as identity cards, banknotes, and stamps. His current practice focuses on issues of subcultures, migration, identity, gender and marginalisation.

THE SLEEPER AWAKES
White rabbit Gallery – Until August 5, 2018 Sydney (Australia)
There are only nine artists in White Rabbit’s The Sleeper Awakes, which takes over four floors of the Chippendale gallery. But there’s certainly no shortage of showstoppers or big ideas on display from these forward-thinking practitioners.
The exhibition itself is a conversation between China’s present and the future that Mao Zedong and his communist revolutionaries dreamed of 70 years ago. Nowhere is this conversation more apparent than in Feng Mengbo’s ‘Long March—Restart’, an old arcade style video game projected onto the gallery’s walls. Visitors are welcome to play what seems to be just a cute game with a Mario-esque figure as the hero. But the game is actually a reimagining of the Long March, the military retreat that Mao used as a tool of propaganda, making a hero out of Yang Zirong, a Red Army soldier. In this version, the soldier hurls Coke cans (could there be a more potent symbol for capitalism?) at his foes.
One of the strangest works on show is Liu Xiaodong’s ‘Weight of Insomnia’, featuring a painting machine meticulously recreating vision from a live webcam showing footage of Circular Quay and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The robotic brush continues to move throughout night and day creating its own impression of the cityscape.
At the centre of the exhibition is Sun Xun’s ‘The Republic of Jing Bang’, which uses an entire floor of the gallery. He combines painting, woodcuts, traditional Chinese ink and charcoal drawings in this mammoth installation. On the top floor, visitors can also see the Australian premiere of his 3D movie ‘Time Spy’, an animation made with around 10,000 hand-carved wood cuttings.
The other major video work in the exhibition is Xu Bing’s ‘Dragonfly Eyes’, a feature-length film made up from footage from 30,000 webcams all across China. The footage has been cut into a bizarre but totally gripping narrative.
And no White Rabbit exhibition would be complete without an attention-grabbing foyer installation, and Peng Hung-Chih’s ‘The Deluge—Noah’s Ark’ is somewhat of a showstopper. The eight-metre distorted cruiseliner is made up of 6,000 separate 3D-printed pieces.

CORDEIRO / MALLARY / MOLNÁR
Mayor Gallery – July 27, 2018 London
‘Writing New Codes’ presents three major pioneers of computer art – Waldemar Cordeiro (b. 1925 Rome, Italy – d. 1973 São Paulo, Brazil). Robert Mallary (b. 1917 Toledo, USA – d. 1997 Northampton, USA)
and Vera Molnár (b.1924 Budapest, Hungary) from three different corners of the globe with early computer art from 1969 – 1977. Although each has an original style and distinctive approach. Influenced by aspects of Constructivism, Op Art, Systems Art and Conceptualism and Concrete art. With these works can be seen a similar modernist aesthetic and common interest in exploiting the unique capabilities inherent in the computer. Artists have always been early adopters of new technology. But the complexity and rarity of computers. Meant that any art form based around them was bound to be a particularly specialised branch of modernism.

RICHARD PRINCE: EARLY JOKE PAINTINGS
Skarstedt Gallery – June 26 /August 3, 2018 New York (Us)
Richard Prince was born in Panama in 1949. First of al he began consolidating. His style during the early 1970s. When he began working with photos and found advertising images. He became known for these works. In which re-photographed and cropped advertisements are displayed. On their own or in groups to emphasize the subtle. Yet powerful impact of mass media images in shaping contemporary consumer culture. As a result, Prince continued to use appropriated imagery, particularly humorous cartoons. Also, and mismatched jokes, that he copied onto large.
These works evolved to eventually include mostly text based elements manipulated in a painterly manner. Also, within them, medium and text overlap in playful ways. Demonstrating the subjective nature of meaning and reflecting Prince’s preoccupation. With notions of contemporary culture. Also, Prince is also well known for his sculptural work as well as his famous Nurse Paintings. Which take figures from medical romance novels and transform them into striking. Mysterious and sometimes gruesome characters. Finally, Recent works are also painterly in nature and include abstract figuration elements. Highly influenced by the works of Willem de Kooning.
