Gilbert & George @ Baronian gallery in Brussels

Gilbert & George @ Baronian gallery in Brussels
THE BEARD PICTURES
10 November 2017 — 23 December 2017


venue:
Albert Baronian gallerie
Rue Isidore Verheyden 2
1050 Brussels, Belgium

THE BEARD PICTURES
are violent, eerie, grotesque, lurid and crazed. They show a dream-like world of paranoia and destruction and madness. Their strange sickly colours and creeping, smashed up, absurd landscapes confront the viewer with relentless aggression. THE BEARD PICTURES depict a world bereft of reason, in which negotiation no longer exists.

Gilbert & George take their places within THE BEARD PICTURES as intense, red, staring, empty-headed and sinister versions of themselves. Their eyes are shadowed and bizarrely prettified. Mutant impish explorers or dead-headed sentinels, they seem to look at, into and through the viewer. They look possessed and serious. They look
as though their spirits might have left their bodies. They look stern, absurd, imprisoned, mocking and mocked.
In each picture they wear beards that are surreal and symbolic. Beards made of wire mesh, beards made of beer foam, beards made of flowers, beards comprising rabbits with snakes for tongues. Secular and sacred, the throwback emblem of hip millennial youth as well as a mark of religious faith, the beard is depicted in THE BEARD PICTURES as both mask and meaning: a sign of the times.
In some of THE BEARD PICTURES, the artists stand either in front of a barbed wire or mesh fence, or behind one. Elsewhere, rusted steel rods sprout from collapsing buildings of pre-stressed concrete. In yet other pictures,
Gilbert & George are unsmiling comic grotesques, with tiny bodies and huge heads. Behind them a blank
silvery void, extravagant ornamental foliage, wire mesh fencing, newspaper advertisements for bouncers, builders and sex workers, the heads in relief of popes, monarchs, worthies and heroes.
Aggressively absurd, trashing contemporary artistic niceties but resonant with intense symbolism, THE BEARD PICTURES turn history into a mad parade, their mood shape-shifting between that of science fiction, lucid dreaming and Victorian caricature.

It is a vision and a form which brings to mind Oscar Wilde’s account of Walter Pater’s ‘Essays’: “….others are medieval in their strangeness of colour and passionate suggestion, and all of them absolutely modern, in the true meaning of the term modernity. For he to whom the present is the only thing that is present, knows nothing of the age in which he lives.
In the half century that they have lived and worked together as Living Sculptures, embarked on a visionary journey through the modern world, always together and always alone, Gilbert & George have made fiercely singular Anti-Art that is poetic, primal and emotionally driven. Order and madness are held in tension, vaudevillian
and nursery rhyme absurdity take on the air of paranormal ritual.
The more the viewer contemplates THE BEARD PICTURES, the more Gilbert & George appear like poltergeists within the cause of art and spirit sentinels within a world gone mad. In this chaos of trashed aesthetics and reversed values, all has become symbol and surface: mad symbols, presented with deadly seriousness. And as such they study the viewer.

Joseph Beuys @Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp (M HKA)

Joseph Beuys @Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp (M HKA)
Greetings from the Eurasian
October 13, 2017–January 21, 2018  

Representing over 150 works, the exhibition Joseph Beuys: Greetings from the Eurasian seeks simultaneously to consider Joseph Beuys’ activities in Antwerp during the 1960s and 1970s, alongside his relevance to a new generation.
Joseph Beuys was one of the most significant and influential artist of the twentieth century, expanding the scope of art into the realms of politics, society and ecology. Beuys was active in Antwerp during the 1960s and 1970s through his relationship with the seminal gallery Wide White Space. Amongst his numerous exhibitions, it is here that he also made his performance Eurasienstab (Eurasian Staff) in collaboration with Henning Christiansen on February 9, 1968. Joseph Beuys: Greetings from the Eurasian will in the first instance look at Beuys as an artist that was not only active in Antwerp (where he met other figures of the Post-War avant-garde such as Marcel Broodthaers and Panamarenko) but was also deeply influential in Belgium more broadly, in a way that has been largely forgotten.
The exhibition also considers Beuys as a figure who worked in a way that was contrary to the logic and hegemony of modernism. He was in a sense the embodiment of the anti-modern—against greater rationality, individualism and the Eurocentric world-view. Using his Eurasienstab performance as a starting point, the exhibition will consider how Beuys’ use of the notion of "Eurasia" was part of his anti-modern sentiment, looking away from the grand-narrative and hegemony of the "West," and towards a vision of affinity with the "East," to the point of even removing such distinctions. It was a vision that was more attuned to cultural depth, mysticism and to nature. This anti-modern approach also echoed in his political engagement, with an approach to politics though a belief in discursiveness, latent energy and direct action.
Joseph Beuys: Greetings from the Eurasian presents numerous major works by Beuys, including a number of installations related to key actions, including Eurasienstab (Eurasian Staff) (1968) and Honigpumpe am Arbeitsplatz (Honeypump at the Workplace) (1977) that he activated at the Documenta 6 exhibition in 1977, as well as key works such as Infiltration homogen für Konzertflügel (Homogeneous Infiltration for Grand Piano) (1966) and Hirschdenkmäler (Monuments to the Stag) (1958/1982), amongst many others. The exhibition will also look at the activities of the Antwerp Free International University that was set up by proponents of the Antwerp artistic community during the early 1980s. Joseph Beuys: Greetings from the Eurasian will be the first major exhibition of works by Beuys in Belgium since the 1980s.
The exhibition is curated by Nav Haq, Senior Curator, M HKA.

Oslo Architecture Triennale, 2019 ||| Open call for curator

Oslo Architecture Triennale, 2019 ||| Open call for curator
Application deadline: 18 October, 2017 (23:59 CET)

The Oslo Architecture Triennale (OAT) seeks a Chief Curator, theme and concept for its seventh edition to be held in Oslo, Norway, in autumn 2019. Individuals or collectives of any nationality and country of residence are openly invited to send their proposal in English.
With OAT 2019, the Triennale aims to continue its search into the future:
As a physical manifestation of political systems, culture and social structures, architecture play an important role in how we understand and shape our societies. In a time where democracy and current systems of power are being challenged and change is an increasingly present and accelerating force in our global and local societies, OAT 2019 wishes to raise a discussion on the role and relevance of architecture in the future.
The Curator will have primary artistic and academic responsibility for the core programme of OAT 2019, including the development of its conceptual and thematic framework and research. The Curator will work in close collaboration with the Triennale’s partner institutions to develop and produce the different parts of the core programme of OAT 2019.
Application deadline: 18 October, 2017 (23:59 CET)
As a triennial event, OAT strives to develop a content of high quality over a course of three years. The Triennale therefore aims to not only display, but also explore and investigate issues of architecture and urban development through alternative and interdisciplinary projects and practices.
In 2016, the Oslo Architecture Triennale manifested its position as one of the world’s important arenas for dissemination and discussion of architectural and urban challenges. This is something that the organization aims to maintain in 2019.

KÖLNER LISTE 2018

KÖLNER LISTE · The Discovery Art Fair ||| April 20th to 22nd, 2018

Opening: April 19th, 2018
XPOST in Cologne | Gladbacher Wall 5, 50670 Cologne

In parallel with Art Cologne, the hall of XPOST Köln will be filled with contemporary art from April 20th to 22nd, 2018. The fifth edition of KÖLNER LISTE is designed to inspire and engage, inciting the discovery of new names and artworks. Addressing both new and experienced collectors, the fair will showcase a wide spectrum of emerging contemporary art at affordable prices. With an extraordinary selection of galleries, KÖLNER LISTE aims to become one of the most interesting art events to follow as one of the most progressive art fairs in Germany.
Art lovers see KÖLNER LISTE as an ideal extension to Art Cologne, a place where their knowledge of the contemporary scene is broadened and their collecting possibilities expand. Clad in friendly and communicative atmosphere, the organizers invite all visitors to enter the dialogue with artists and gallerists and to connect with the international art community. The stimulating environment of KÖLNER LISTE is where many new artistic relationships blossom, and where experienced collectors and first-time buyers can spot and buy original art for their home or office.
The diversity of artistic objects and media is another feature of this art show, ranging from large-scale canvasses to miniature editions. With painting being only one of the mediums present at the KÖLNER LISTE, visitors will be presented with works of sculpture, graphic prints, mixed media, installations, video art and even performance. Notable highlights of the exhibition will be sections dedicated to Photography and Urban Art, each specially curated for the fair.
Along with the variety of art, the quality of works presented is as equally important to the KÖLNER LISTE team. Imbued with an abundance of styles and visual expressions, the art that the public will see at the exhibition is carefully selected by the exhibitors especially for this occasion. Many of the artworks that had their debut at the KÖLNER LISTE found their way into world-renowned art spaces around the world later on.
Spanning across the 4000 sqm of the historic XPOST venue, the fair will introduce new art Cologne hasn’t seen before, serving as the hub for all contemporary art enthusiasts. The late 19th-century industrial halls of the locale serve as the perfect setting for the exhibition and its program. In addition to art presentations, the KÖLNER LISTE will organize various educational programs for artists and art professionals, as well as workshops and guided tours.
KÖLNER LISTE is more than an art fair in Cologne. It is a place of immersion into the art world, an event to connect with art professionals and dealers and meet artists in person, and a market for some of the most inventive high-quality affordable art.
We at KÖLNER LISTE look forward to presenting you with another unique art-viewing experience, hoping to encourage your collector’s spirit to act!

ArtVerona 2017

13th edition of ArtVerona
13-16 October 2017
Verona | Italy




ArtVerona | Art Project Fair, the modern and contemporary art fair will hold its thirteenth edition from 13 to 16 October 2017.
Under the artistic direction of  Adriana Polveroni, at the helm for the next three years, the event continues its growing trend. The latest editions, in fact, have seen a surge in the number of exhibitors and collectors and increasing appreciation by the operators. The commitment is to support an alternative fair model, with the promotion of the Italian art system as its defining trait.
Trade fairs today are not just market events, they need to produce culture, also to the purpose of better driving the market itself. But what does producing culture actually means for a modern and contemporary art fair?
In recent years, ArtVerona has built up a clear profile for itself by effectively focusing on the enhancement of the Italian art system and increasingly accrediting itself as a privileged venue for exhibitors and collectors in search of quality.
The title of the 13th edition of ArtVerona is “Viaggio in Italia  #BacktoItaly”, highlighting this Italian vocation and the will to support the artists and the market that represents them, and eventually reach out to museums, as the
natural goal of a route that begins with scouting  in art galleries.
./././.
Increased faith in the project and acknowledgement of the headway made in the past years: this is the backbone of the 13th edition of ArtVerona, to be held from the 13th to the 16th of October 2017 at Veronafiere, and solidly based on a selection of 135 galleries, 30 of which at their debut in Verona.
In addition to these are 14 new independent entities and 20 from the publishing sector.
As of this year under the art direction of Adriana Polveroni and firmly hinged on its partnership with ANGAMC - Associazione Nazionale Gallerie d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea (Italian Association of Modern and Contemporary Art Galleries), the event, renowned for being the most vivacious and innovative of its kind in the sector, will be concentrating its work on the quality of the exhibits and on the care taken in the art proposals, ultimately aiming at enhancing the Italian art system.
The hub of the edition will be Viaggio in Italia #backtoitaly, designed to focus the public’s attention on the Italian vocation of the event and the will to support the artists and the market that represents them in synergy with the entire art system.
In the two pavilions, traditionally dedicated to Modern and to Contemporary art, respectively, there are five exhibition sections: Grand Tour and Scouting, the novelty of the year, Main Section, Raw Zone and i8-independent spaces.
Grand Tour is the section that best illustrates the “Viaggio in Italia” (Journey to Italy) theme. The intent of this formula is to underscore the attraction Italy has always exercised on artists, to the point of being – what perhaps it still is – a precious source of inspiration. This area will showcase the foreign realities present in our Country and the Italian galleries abroad that have ‘returned’ to the Peninsula, interpreting a new take on the ‘journey’ concept. In the Contemporary pavilion, together with the 6 entities of the Grand Tour, the 12 research galleries of the Scouting section and the 8 entities of the Raw Zone with their monographic projects compose the more experimental nucleus of the event. Alongside these are the 14 organisations of the i8-independent spaces section, all of which at their debut, are also invited to present their interpretation of the ‘journey’ theme. The format created by Cristiano Seganfreddo, that this year enjoys the partnership with the MAXXI – Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo museum of Rome, in the last eight years has been providing space and visibility in the Fair to independent organisations and associations that move autonomously with respect to the institutional system and that are often the catalysts of new trends.
As of 2017, the mission of ArtVerona to promote independent entities has expanded to include a new project, Free Stage, conceived by Adriana Polveroni, which will involve several young artists who are not yet backed by a gallery, but rather presented by artists from the previous generation. The senior artists shall be Daniele Puppi and Giuseppe Pietroniro, who have already worked together on the independent project “There is no place like home”, and H.H. Lim, a Malaysian-Chinese artist who arrived in Italy at the age of 18 to study at the Fine Arts Academy of Rome and has since then settled down in Italy – being therefore an especially significant expression of what a “Journey to Italy” means for an artist.
The program ArtVeronaTalk, conducted by the art historian and critic Paola Tognon, is another event centered on the Viaggio in Italia theme that, compared to the past, in this perspective is seen more as a gamble, a problematic landing-place, a not at all certain idea of the future.
Silvia Evangelisti, an art professor and critic and, as of this year, a consultant of the ArtVerona board, has been nominated Chairperson of the Premio Icona Committee.
Last but not least, noteworthy is the appointment of the collector Diego Bergamaschi to the ArtVerona Steering Committee, joining Mauro De Iorio, Giorgio Fasol, Michele Furlanetto, Patrizia Moroso,
Cristiano Seganfreddo and Catterina Seia, and thereby confirming the event’s mission of focusing mainly on the collectors and on enhancing their role and potential.

Daniel Morgenthaler: Curating? Corating! | lecture

Curating? Corating!  
the public lecture by Swiss curator and author Daniel Morgenthaler

About the lecture
It is a bit like picking up weapons in the digital architecture of an ego shooter game: Ancient Greek and Roman orators memorized their speeches by placing portions of content in different rooms of an imagined or remembered architectural structure. While giving their speeches, they would make their way through this brain architecture, gathering up contents along the way, aiming for the exit – i.e. the finale of their speech. As curators, we are – usually – not working in imagined architectures, if, then maybe in digital ones. But perhaps there are certain parallels between organizing speeches using the “method of loci” and organizing exhibitions in the chain of rooms that constitute an art space. And maybe exhibition making is also a kind of mnemotechnology: placing content in rooms, along the logic or rhetoric of a certain topic.

What can curators learn from orators, ancient or contemporary? Are exhibitions of contemporary art maybe less a tool of memory – that’s more the thing of historical museums – but of mnemory, with an n? Places of thinking art, of rethinking art, of memorizing tendencies? Literary theory is widely – and sometimes too generally – applied to arts. Could the principles of rhetoric be applied to curating, to more effect? These and other questions will be discussed in the context of future and past exhibitions at Helmhaus Zürich.

Daniel Morgenthaler (1978) has studied English, German and Philosophy in Zurich and Sheffield. Since 2011 he works as a curator at Helmhaus Zürich. Exhibitions include Talk to the Hand, 2013, !Mediengruppe Bitnik – Delivery for Mr. Assange/Christian Waldvogel – unknown, 2014, Asia Andrzejka Naveen – Mas cerca/De La Fuente Oscar De Franco – Bluecore, 2015. As a freelance author, he contributes to exhibition catalogues, magazines and newspapers like Kunstbulletin, Züritipp and Apartamento. He regularly teaches at the MAS Curating and the MFA at the Zurich University of the Arts.

Thomas Huber: extase (ecstasy)
Nearly 30 years after his exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, Thomas Huber is literally taking possession of the large room at the Centre Culturel Suisse, where his work is wholly focused on the figure of Eros. This exhibition by the Berlin-based Swiss painter is made up of drawings, watercolours and large-scale wall paintings made on-site. “What I want to do is articulate the genius loci, that is to say, the exhibition space, by painting this Eros that connects us all.”.Protuberant and receding domes, constituted by gigantic vulva–fountains, are painted directly onto the walls. Reflectively imaged in these wall paintings, the exhibition space also houses a set of drawings and watercolours. For the artist, this manipulation by means of images offers magical possibilities: the representation of the space acts on the space itself. Huber thus transcends the image of the sexual organs, which are often considered unaesthetic, or even ugly, by giving them an aesthetic form, by making them “beautiful.”. The exhibition is accompanied by an artist’s book, also titled extase, containing a selection of 80 erotic drawings and watercolours taken from the 66 sketchbooks that the artist has used since 1972, and never previously published.
On January 25 at 7 pm, Huber will give a speech, titled Séance, in relation to the exhibition.

Thomas Huber was born in Zurich in 1955. He lives and works in Berlin. The titles of his exhibitions are always carefully chosen. Of his many shows since 1982, the most recent include A l’horizon at the Kunstmuseum Bonn (2016) and Musée des Beaux-Arts de Rennes (2017); Abyss, a permanent installation for the MONA in Hobart, Tasmania (2017); the major retrospective Vous êtes ici. Thomas Huber est au Mamco, at Mamco, Geneva, in 2012; and La langueur des losanges at Carré d’Art, Nîmes, in 2008. In 1988, the Centre Pompidou hosted his show 7 lieux. Winner of the Meret Oppenheim Prize in 2013, he is represented, among others, by the Skopia gallery in Geneva and Louis Carré & Cie in Paris. His bibliography is currently approaching 50 books.







Vanessa Billy: Dear Life
January 21–February 27, 2017

Vanessa Billy: Dear Life
The works brought together in this exhibition, made mainly using recuperated junk, form an environment that suggests “dirty” liquids of one kind of other: an engine slowly leaking oil, a baby on a “sea” of waste, a net with fluids draining out of it. By getting bodies to interact with this environment, Dear Life evokes human life and its transformations, and questions the notion of life forms in a wider sense. This show by Vanessa Billy revisits what is a regular concern in her work: political ecology, doing so through the circulation and activation/deactivation of energies and resources.
Vanessa Billy (born 1978, lives in Zurich) studied at Cooper Union, New York and the Chelsea College of Arts, London. She has exhibited at the Kunsthalle Saint-Gall; BolteLang, Zurich (2016); c-o-m-p-o-s-i-t-e, Brussels; Limoncello, London (2015); Collective Gallery, Edinburgh (2014); Piano Nobile, Geneva (2013); and Kunsthaus Baselland, Muttenz (2011).

Sonia Kacem:Carcasse
March 4–April 2, 2017

Sonia Kacem: Carcasse
Structures in wood and metal delimit “a world” (as the term is understand in video games) that visitors are encouraged to explore. Carcasse is composed mainly by lines and empty spaces, humorously twisting the idea that the artist is expected to “fill” the space. Sonia Kacem plays games with our perception, shifting between abstraction and fiction. Her bare sculptures sport ambiguous, flesh-like colours and have human given names, like figures in a strange interior.
Sonia Kacem (born 1985, lives in Amsterdam) studied at HEAD in Geneva and is in residence at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam, in 2016–17. She exhibited at the Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva, and at Galerie Gregor Staiger, Zurich, in 2016; at the Kunsthalle Saint-Gall and the T293 gallery, Naples, in 2015; and at Mamco, Geneva, in 2014. In 2016 the AHEAD foundation published a monograph about her work, Sonia Kacem - KIC.

Duncan Campbell @ Wiels | Brussels
26.01 - 26.03.2017
Curator: Dirk Snauwaert
Opening: 25.01.2017 at 19:30


WIELS presents the first major exhibition in Belgium by Duncan Campbell (b. 1972). Irish-born, Glasgow-based artist Campbell is best known for his documentary films. He was the recipient of the 2014 Turner Prize, to which he contributed with his seminal film It for Others, originally made for the Scottish Pavilion at Venice Biennial (2013), and which is a central work of this exhibition.
Campbell uses archival material as a tool to research subjects, biographies and histories and to reflect upon the “truth” or factual evidence of information. By mixing archival footage and new material, he questions and challenges the documentary form.

short bio 
Duncan Campbell (born 1972) is an Irish video artist, based in Glasgow. He was the winner of the 2014 Turner Prize. Campbell was born in Dublin, and studied at the University of Ulster (BA, 1996) and the Glasgow School of Art (MFA, 1998). In 2008, he was awarded the Bâloise Prize. In 2013, Campbell was one of the three artists chosen to represent Scotland at the Venice Biennale. On 1 December 2014, it was announced that he had won the 2014 Turner Prize. Campbell took the prize for his video work "It for Others" – a work that reflects on African art and includes a dance sequence inspired by Karl Marx.

Sven ’t Jolle At WIELS, Brussels


Sven 't Jolle || The Age of Entitlement, or Affordable Tooth Extraction
13.01 - 19.03.2017
Curator: Zoë Gray
12.01.2017, 19:00
Vernissage / Opening & Conversation / Gesprek
Sven ’t Jolle & Zoë Gray, curator (EN)
WIELS presents the largest solo presentation to date of Belgian artist Sven 't Jolle. ‘t Jolle’s work is a humorous and impassioned critique of capitalism. Presenting his sculptures, installations and works on paper, this exhibition at WIELS offers a generous overview of his recent practice. It reveals how he fuses together historical references and citations from everyday life to create new and eloquent constellations of images, forms and ideas. His work explores the values of contemporary society, addressing with understated humour its inequalities.
The title for this exhibition is taken from a 2012 speech by the former Australian treasurer Joe Hockey. Decrying the welfare state as unsustainable, Hockey proclaimed: “The Age of Entitlement is over.” ‘t Jolle approaches the phrase both critically and generously, using it to explore the question of entitlement more broadly. Who is entitled to what? Who decides upon this entitlement? The pun upon the Age of Enlightenment is far from accidental. The Enlightenment was the dominant philosophical movement of the eighteenth century in Europe, founded on ideals of reason, tolerance and liberty. Today, while the same words are often applied to the neo-liberal society in which we live, their meaning – or our understanding of them – has changed dramatically, as ‘t Jolle underscores in his work. By giving the exhibition a second, or alternative title – Affordable Tooth Extraction – ‘t Jolle undercuts any pompousness with an absurd verbal juxtaposition that nevertheless refers to the dismantling of the welfare state and public healthcare.

EAST CALLS | CURATORIAL RESIDENCY |SPRING 2017

EAST CALLS | CURATORIAL RESIDENCY |SPRING 2017
Deadline: Jan 12, 2017


Topic: Precarity in Art | Dates: April 1- 30, 2017
Location: Budapest (Hungary) and Zagreb (Croatia)

 
The first East Calls Curatorial Residency is jointly organized by Easttopics (Hungary)
and G-MK (Croatia) in Spring 2017, on the topic of Precarity in Art.
The topic of Precarity in Art mirrors the actual situation in both countries: Hungary has
endured a severe shift in cultural policies since 2011, resulting in the desertification of
the contemporary art scene and generating new artistic reflexes, independent and
alternative ways to operate. Croatia is presently undergoing the same kind of
restructuration, foreshadowing an oppressing cultural political climate and situation for
the years to come and already witnessing the unprecedented solidarity of the art scenes
in a need to act.
The residency lasts one month and is divided in two time blocks,the first one in Budapest
(Hungary) between April 3- 15 and the second one in Zagreb between April 17- 30. The
purpose of this residency program is to engage with the thematic of Precarity in Art by
connecting international curators with those protagonists of the Hungarian and Croatian
cultural scenes who were/are working with minimal financial, spatial or temporal
resources, and to map the answers they give to such situation.
The program in each country is articulated around three main pivots: a general overview
of the contemporary art scenes of both countries, a focus on the institutions,
self- -organized structures and art professionals dealing with or functioning in precarity,
and finally a personally tailored part shaped according to each participant’s points of
interest.
Participation fee: 1.000 EUROS
The fee includes the use of office facilities, entry fees of museums and special events,
public transport in Budapest and Zagreb, inland transport for provincial venues, transport
between Budapest and Zagreb. The fee also covers the production costs or a final
publication realized on the topic of the residency program.
Travel to Budapest for the start of the program and back at the end of the program, as
well as accommodation expenses are NOT included.
Please send a letter of intent and cv
to: easttopics@gmail.com Application deadline: Jan 12, 2017.
Selection process: Jan 19, 2017.

Frieze Artist Award 2017 | Open Call


Frieze Artist Award 2017
Deadline:10 February, 2017
The Award is supported by the LUMA Foundation

The Frieze Artist Award is an international, open call for an artist 25–40 years of age to realize a major site-specific work at Frieze London 2017. The chosen proposal will be presented as part of Frieze Projects, the fair’s celebrated non-profit programme established in 2003 and curated by Raphael Gygax. Frieze Projects and the Frieze Artist Award are supported by the LUMA Foundation.
Proposals will be reviewed by a selection panel including Cory Arcangel (artist), Eva Birkenstock (Director, Kunstverein für die Rheinlande and Westfalen, Düsseldorf), Tom Eccles (Executive Director of the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, New York) and Raphael Gygax (Curator, Frieze Projects & Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zurich), chaired by Jo Stella-Sawicka (Artistic Director, Frieze fairs). The closing date for applications is February 10, 2017 at 5pm GMT; and the winner will be announced in the spring of 2017.

The 2016 Frieze Artist Award was given to Yuri Pattison, who installed a networked artwork throughout Frieze London, exploring "trending" data and systems of interpretation or control. In 2015, New York-based artist Rachel Rose, created a scale-model of the fair structure, in which lighting and sound design simulated the sonic and visual sense frequencies of animals inhabiting The Regent’s Park. In 2014, the inaugural winner of the Frieze Artist Award, Mélanie Matranga’s project explored economic and emotional exchange in a series of online videos and an on-site café-installation at Frieze London.
Now in its fourth year, the Frieze Artist Award sits within a rich history of artist awards presented at Frieze London, including the Emdash Award (2011–13) and the Cartier Award (2006–10), which have made possible ambitious new commissions by artists including Cécile B. Evans (2013), Simon Fujiwara (2010), Jordan Wolfson (2009) and Mario García Torres (2007). Explore previous projects here.

Mare Nostrum by Paolo Vivian at [Box] Videoart Project Space , Milano

Mare Nostrum by Paolo Vivian is a video impression and symbolist poetry, dedicated to the inner journey in search of the boundaries of hope. the sea as a symbol of a rich inner life. The world of shadows and dreams. Impalpable. Floating. Overwhelming. The Sea - slight, quiet, sensual, fragile, infatuated, timeless, irresistible. How it is the love. The black sea - cold, dangerous. The occult sea that it hides the memories of the trips after the hope for a meaningful life. The mare nostrum - constantly moving and constantly changing. The sea of ​​fear of pains. The sea of ​​power and ecstasy.  The work of  Vivian is the silent conversation of future memories and boundaries within us. The artist has used a banal object of everyday life and  he has created an unreal world of hypnotic beauty and spiritual metamorphosis. With the transmutation of forms with color spillover - those of the spirit and those of the passion, Vivian draws a thin borderline between life and death, between Heaven and Earth. The cubes of photographic installation shown in its memory are used by the artist for its symbolic games where the primary elements of the sea become as the tools for discovery of the secrets of the cosmos essence and inner awakening.

ARCOlisboa 2017| Open call

ARCOlisboa 2017
Dates : 18–21 May 2017
Deadline for applications: 10 -01-2017

ARCO and IFEMA are pleased to announce the launching of ARCOlisboa's second edition. The outstanding reception of the first edition is the driving force behind this project. Following the opinions of the galleries, artists, collectors and the local scene, the Fair will subtly grow, adapting to the Cordoaria Nacional iconic building.
Quality of contents is ARCOlisboa 2017's main objective. The Fair aims at becoming a major artistic and social event in the Portuguese capital between May 18 and 21. In this edition, the General Program will host about 50 galleries selected by the Organizing Committee after the analysis of all submitted projects. The quality of the projects of the participating galleries and the city's own cultural activity will be the key attractions to lure international collectors, well-known professionals and the general public.
Lisbon is becoming a favorite destination for interesting gallery projects from different parts of the world who have decided to open there their main headquarters or a second branch. The confirmation of this fact has led to the new Opening section in ARCOlisboa; a program that will count with the participation of around ten national and international galleries that are under seven years old and that will be selected by João Laia, a Portuguese writer and curator, currently based in London.
The world of art will again look at Lisbon, a city that has thrown itself into contemporary art. Together with this enthusiasm, we have the support from institutions, galleries and collectors to the Fair through varied exhibitions and events that create opportunities to meet with ARCOlisboa's participants and guests.
Moreover, all this will take place during a specially dynamic moment in the country's art scene thanks to the new space in the Museu de Arte, Arquitetura e Tecnologia (MAAT) by the Fundação EDP, new galleries and non profit spaces, and the appointment of Lisbon as 2017 Ibero-American Capital of Culture 2017. On this occasion, ARCOlisboa will host meetings and activities linked with Latin America that will gather outstanding professionals of the art world, like for instance the Meeting of European and Latin-American Museums, among others.
