ALFREDO JAAR: THE RWANDA PROJECT
Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) – Until 23 May 2021 Cape Town (South Africa)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alfredo Jaar: The Rwanda Project, is a solo exhibition by New York artist of Chilean origin Alfredo Jaar at Zeitz MOCAA. Largely derived from surveys. Photojournalist field research in the aftermath of the Rwandan genocide of 1994. This exhibition seeks to investigate how one can engage with trauma as a foreigner. Also of criticism of the indifference of the world and the lack of global visibility atrocities in Rwanda at that time.

Photography as a medium.

Images have the capacity to arouse strong emotions on our part. Photography as a medium. Creates a relationship between the photographer as an observer. The subject of the photograph and the viewer of the image. This reminds us to consider the ways in which we see and perceive a given image. Alfredo Jaar’s multidisciplinary practice challenges the medium. The way we consume images. Information media and their facilitation of the voyeuristic gaze. Jaar asks the viewer to consider what is not immediately visible. And the possible ways in which an image can live beyond its moment of creation and outside of its frame.

Anselm Kiefer “Field of the Cloth of Gold”
Gagosian Gallery – Until Mar 28, 2021 Le Bourget (France)

 

 

 

 

 

Gagosian is pleased to present Field of the Cloth of Gold. An exhibition of four new monumental paintings by Anselm Kiefer.

The tension between beauty and terror. Alongside the inextricable relationship between history and place, Kiefer’s work has been animating since the 1970s. Drawing on the literature of cultural memory. Including poetry. The Old and New Testaments and Kabbalah. Kiefer gives a material presence to myths and metaphors. He imbues the medium of painting with gestures. Surprising and unconventional objects. By juxtaposing it with organic and abject materials such as straw. The sand. Charcoal, ash and mud. Kiefer asserts himself as an iconoclast. His paintings undergo various processes. Like being cut off. Burned. Buried. Exposed to natural elements. Splashed with acid or spilled with lead to be remade. These strategies, associated with the use of materials such as lead. Concrete. Glass. Fabric. Tree roots or burnt books. It creates a symbolic resonance, making palpable both the movement and the destruction of human life. The persistence of the lyric and the divine.

Blow is a retrospective with more than 80 works by the exceptional Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto (Rio de Janeiro, 1964). His works are exhibited in the two large rooms and in the main room of the CCLM. A fun and participatory journey between different pieces as well as immense immersive sculptures. In his work, closely linked to the work he leads with the Amazonian communities. Neto explores ancestral knowledge and practices. He presents us through collaborative work, new realities and possibilities for contemporary art and its link with heritage. 

The limits of perception.

Neto, heir to the revolutionary Brazilian plastic around the body. Consider expanding the limits of perception. In his works he associates lycra. The cork. Spices like cloves and saffron. Also, natural elements like sand. He constructs scenes that invite us to reflect on our position as human beings in relation to other living beings. Our undeniable vocation in relation to others. Our harmony with the different and with nature.

Louise Bourgeois at MASS MOCA

Louise Bourgeois at MASS MOCA

Louise Bourgeois
Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MOCA) – Until May 28, 2021 North Adams (Massachusetts, United States)

 

 

 

 

 

An event of singular importance is scheduled this spring at MASS MoCA. A decade-long installation of three monumental marbles by Louise Bourgeois. Each weighing several tons. Occupying a large floor area reinforced by steel supports. With an additional aluminum sculpture on five one-year loan. One of the colossi on display, Untitled, 1991, includes two marble slabs wedged together. The work embodies a team of mythical characters. The head rises above a stylized frieze of the sea, whose undulating waves seemingly allude to Poseidon and riff on the Pergamon altar. Which depicts the battle of the giants against the Olympian deities.

Human anatomy and sexuality.

Louise Bourgeois described her artistic practice as an attempt to work through any tumult that tormented her. Psychologically. Personally. Artistically, to find a perfect harmony. His work often refers to human anatomy and sexuality. In some cases openly and in others more subtly through organic and ambiguous forms. His work included drawings. Paints. Textiles. Embroidered works. Sculptures and installations ranging from a few centimeters to totally immersive environments.

MONOCULTURE – A recent history

MONOCULTURE – A recent history

MONOCULTURE – A recent history

M HKA, MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART ANTWERP – Until April 24, 2021 Antwerp (Belgium)

 

 

 

 

 

The MONOCULTURE – A Recent History exhibition assumes that any understanding of the concept of “multiculture” would require research into that of “monoculture”. Social understanding of “monoculture” can be defined as the homogeneous expression of the culture of a specific social or ethnic group. The project aims to approach the notion of monoculture with an open mind. It will therefore aim to conduct an analysis rather than develop an antithesis to monoculture. Not only from historical, social perspectives. Cultural and ideological. But also philosophical. Linguistic and agricultural. MONOCULTURE will provide an experimental mapping. Allowing a comparative analysis of the different manifestations of monoculture. As well as their reflection on art and propaganda. With a view to drawing conclusions which may be relevant for society and culture in general.

Joy Hester “REMEMBER ME”

Joy Hester “REMEMBER ME”

Joy Hester “REMEMBER ME”
Heide Museum of Modern Art – Until February 14, 2021 Melbourne (Australia)

 

 

 

 

 

This large, investigative exhibition celebrates the powerful work of Joy Hester. Unique figure of 20th century Australian art.

Joy Hester produced some of the most distinctive images. And the most intriguing that emerged in Australia in the 1940s and 1950s. Working almost exclusively with brush and ink. She focused on the powerful expressions of the human figure. Using drawing as a vehicle to capture life in all its complexity.

The exhibition traces the progression of Hester’s artistic interests. His formative works responding to the oppressive climate of the Second World War. Has convincing psychological portraits. Later intimate images of faces and lovers taken shortly before his untimely death in 1960. Hester was not afraid to explore subjects considered very provocative during his lifetime. Love. Sex. Birth and death. Themes that are found throughout the exhibition. Joy Hester: “Remember Me” brings together important works from public and private collections. We see many drawings that had never been exhibited to the public. The exhibition offers a new insight into working methods. As well as the creative processes developed by Hester early in his career.

Federico Solmi “The Bacchanalian Ones”

Federico Solmi “The Bacchanalian Ones”

Federico Solmi “The Bacchanalian Ones”
Rowan University Art Gallery – Until January 21, 2021 Glassboro (US)

 

 

 

 

 

Use of game engines, motion capture. Digital animation. Virtual and augmented reality associated with his drawings and paintings. Solmi creates satirical and clownish depictions of political leaders. Colonial rulers and explorers absorbed. In extravagant and disturbed evenings. Pompous and imperious parades. And theatrical and artificial events.

Inspired by ancient mythology. Modern myth and contemporary celebrity culture, Solmi has mixed historical figures and portrayed them as macabre followers. Indulgent and degenerate of the cults of Bacchus and Dionysus, concerned only with their own power and influence.

By the absurd behavior of its characters. Solmi asks us to question their relevance and the distorted historical accounts that led to an era of disinformation. Of corruption and hypocrisy.

This exhibition was generously funded by the Joseph Robert Foundation. Also, with additional support from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
