12.04.14 // Rafael Lozano-Hemmer // Monument/Anti-monument // St.Louis

rafael 

The artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer will be the keynote speaker in the Monument/Anti-monument conference that will happen from 10 to 12.04.14, in Missouri, USA. Lozano-Hemmer develops interactive  installations that are at the intersection of  architecture and performance art. His main  interest is in creating platforms for public  participation by perverting technologies such as  robotics, computerized surveillance or telematic  networks. Inspired by phantasmagoria, carnival  and animatronics, his light and shadow works  are “antimonuments for alien agency”.

ABOUT  Monument / Anti-Monument
Monument / Anti-Monument is an international conference that will bring together artists, art historians, curators, academics, architects, urban planners, designers, archaeologists and other experts to explore contemporary thinking about the intersection of sculpture and the public realm. While the public sculpture and monuments of the host city of St. Louis will be used as a catalyst for discussion, the conference will also seek a broader dialogue that will encompass a global perspective on sculpture and its relationship to place.


O artista Rafael Lozano- Hemmer será o orador principal da conferência Monument/Anti-monument que acontecerá de 10 a 12.04.14, em Missouri, EUA.
Lozano-Hemmer desenvolve instalações interativas que estão na interseção da arquitetura e arte performática. Seu interesse principal é a criação de plataformas para a participação pública pervertendo tecnologias como a robótica, a vigilância computadorizada ou redes telemáticas. Inspirado pela fantasmagoria, carnaval e animatronics, seus trabalhos de luz e sombra obras são “anti-monumentos para a agência alienígena”.

SOBRE Monument / Anti-Monument
Monument / Anti-Monument é uma conferência internacional que reunirá artistas, historiadores de arte, curadores, acadêmicos, arquitetos, urbanistas, designers, arqueólogos e outros especialistas para explorar o pensamento contemporâneo sobre a intersecção da escultura e da esfera pública. Enquanto a escultura pública e monumentos da cidade-sede de St. Louis serão usados como catalisadores para a discussão, a conferência também buscará um diálogo mais amplo que vai abranger uma perspectiva global sobre a escultura e sua relação com o lugar.

ivan 

A Gallery Hyundai abrirá exposição do chileno Iván Navarro no dia 28 de março. O artista é conhecido pela união entre o néon e o fluorescente  e mensagens sócio-políticas. Suas esculturas e instalações minimalistas e modernas são orientadas pela afiada crítica social e política, que tem sua origem na história pessoal do artista – que nasceu em meio à ditadura militar do regime de Augusto Pinochet, em Santiago, na década de 1970. O ditador adotava, entre outras práticas absurdas, o corte de energia elétrica como maneira de impor toques de recolher aos habitantes. A luz para controlar as massas é uma memória de infância de Iván Navarro e acabou por se tornar o grande assunto de seu trabalho.

The Gallery Hyundai opens exhibition of Chilean Iván Navarro on March 28th. The artist is known for the union between the neon and fluorescent and socio-political messages. His minimalist and modern sculptures and installations are guided by sharp social and political criticism, which has its origin in the artist personal history – that was born amid the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet,  in Santiago, in the 1970s. The dictator used to adopt, among other absurd practices, power cut as a way to impose curfews on people. A light to control the masses is a memory of Iván Navarro childhood and eventually became the major subject of his work.

Revisiting Its Seminal 1966 Exhibition Primary Structures, The Jewish Museum Mounts Major Exhibition of International Sculpture from the 1960s 

Curated by Jens Hoffmann, Other Primary Structures Is Presented in Two Parts
March 14 – May 18 & May 25 – August 3

Beginning in March, The Jewish Museum will present a major exhibition of sculpture from the 1960s featuring the work of artists from Latin America, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe, much of which has rarely been seen in the United States. Presented in two parts, Other Primary Structures revisits the premise of and builds upon the Museum’s seminal 1966 exhibition Primary Structures: Younger American and British Sculptors, the first American museum exhibition to survey the style now known as Minimalism. Primary Structures introduced the public to such artists as Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, David Medalla, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Walter De Maria, Robert Morris, Anne Truitt, and others—figures unknown at the time but soon to become synonymous with a radically new approach to sculpture. Nearly 50 years later, Other Primary Structures revisits this formative moment in art history while also reexamining the period from today’s far more global perspective. The first part of the exhibition titled Others 1, on view from March 14 – May 18, 2014, examines work created between 1960 and 1967, while Others 2, on view from May 25 – August 3, presents work created between 1967 and 1970, some of which was directly influenced by the 1966 Primary Structures exhibition at The Jewish Museum.

A partir de março, o The Jewish Museum vai apresentar uma grande exposição de esculturas da década de 1960 reunindo trabalhos de artistas da América Latina, Ásia, África, Oriente Médio e Europa Oriental, muitos deles raramente vistos nos Estados Unidos. Apresentado em duas partes, Other Primary Structures revisita e constrói a partir da premissa  da exposição Primary Structures: Younger American and British Sculptors, a primeira exposição do museu americano a examinar o estilo hoje conhecido como Minimalismo. Primary Structures introduziu ao público artistas como Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, David Medalla, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Walter De Maria, Robert Morris, Anne Truitt entre outras figuras desconhecidas na época, mas que logo se tornaram sinônimo de uma abordagem radical e nova para a escultura. Quase 50 anos mais tarde, Other Primary Structures revisita este momento de formação na história da arte e ao mesmo tempo reexamina o período a partir da perspectiva de hoje, muito mais global. A primeira parte da exposição intitulada Others 2, em cartaz de 14 de março – 18 de maio de 2014, examina os trabalhos criados entre 1960 e 1967, enquanto Others 2 , em cartaz de 25 maio – 3 agosto, apresenta trabalhos criados entre 1967 e 1970, alguns dos quais foram diretamente influenciados pela exposição Primary Structures, de 1966 no The Jewish Museum.

Curated by Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk (The Office for Curating, Rotterdam), the exhibition Dans Cinquante Ans d’Ici posits the book – as object, container and idea – against the backdrop of some recent and ongoing discussions that address the probable demise of the bound volume in conjunction with the emergence of digital reading devices. As the title of this exhibition already implies, a somewhat speculative approach towards the subject is taken insofar that any productive attempt at summation of the debate has resulted in stances taken on either side, but has quite obviously avoided closure as the situation undoubtedly remains open–ended. With: AND Publishing and Åbäke, Xavier Antin, Ruth Beale, Nina Beier and Marie Lund, Elena Damiani, Aurélien Froment, Ryan Gander, David Jablonowski, Laurie Kang, Boris Meister, Klaus Scherübel, Sebastian Schmieg and Silvio Lorusso.

Com curadoria de Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk (The Office for Curating, Rotterdam), a exposição Dans Cinquante Ans d’Ici postula o livro – como objeto, container e ideia – contra o pano de fundo de algumas discussões recentes e em curso que tratam do provável desaparecimento do volume limitado em conjunção com a emergência de dispositivos de leitura digital. Como o título desta exposição já sugere, uma certa abordagem especulativa para o assunto é levada na medida em que qualquer tentativa produtiva para resumir o debate tem resultado em instâncias tomadas em ambos os lados. Com base nisso qualquer limitação tem sido evitada uma vez que a situação, sem dúvida, permanece aberta.

SCAD exhibitions department presents Dario Escobar’s “Singular-Plural,” a selection of re-worked industrial objects and works on paper highlighting form, function and concept. Escobar pulls everyday objects—a skateboard, a book page, a baseball bat—from the world of the mass produced into the realm of fine art through his use of appropriation, accumulation and repetition. The result is a work of art comprised of multiple objects that were once singular and utilitarian and are now presented as one work that is imbued with entirely different aesthetic and conceptual qualities.

Escobar elege objetos do dia-a-dia – skate, uma página de livro, um bastão de beisebol – da cultura de massa e os reproduz no contexto da arte através de seu uso de apropriação, acumulação e repetição. O resultado é uma obra de arte composta de vários objetos que antes eram singulares e utilitários e que agora são apresentados como um só trabalho que está imbuído de diferentes qualidades estéticas e conceituais.

20.02 – 13.04.14 // Iván Navarro // Madison Square Park // New York

MadisonSquare
 

Madison Square Park Conservancy’s Mad. Sq. Art is proud to announce a new sculptural installation for late winter 2014: This Land Is Your Land by Brooklyn-based Chilean artist Iván Navarro. The site-specific installation presents three water towers inside of which neon reflections repeat infinitely. The sculptures merge a staple of the New York skyline with the street-level landscape of the Park. The artist takes the exhibition’s title from the beloved 1940 Woody Guthrie folk song, which is both an American anthem and a vocal pull to the freedoms offered in this country for an immigrant population. The towers are elevated to a height above visitors’ heads, allowing them to walk underneath and look up into each sculpture to view the content within. The exhibition will be on view daily from February 20 – April 13, 2014 in Madison Square Park.

Navarro’s water towers—each measuring approximately seven feet in diameter and standing on roughly eight-foot-tall supports—function as vessels for a vocabulary of the political and personal experience of immigration. The interior of one tower features the words “me” and “we”, another features the word “bed,” and a third displays the image of a ladder—all of which are composed of neon light. An internal arrangement of mirrors enables each word or image to repeat perpetually through a seemingly endless vertical space.

Senior Curator of the Madison Square Park Conservancy, Brooke Kamin Rapaport comments: “Iván Navarro uses memory—as a child during the brutal Pinochet regime in Chile—and reflection—on the freedoms of the American experience—to create This Land Is Your Land. This project is significant for our program because Navarro’s work tackles issues pertaining to democracy, social structure and how language can simultaneously manifest liberation and oppression. While wood water tanks are a ubiquitous sight on New York City’s rooftops, the artist loads them with substantive content demonstrating how sculpture can function as object and as a messenger of critical issues today.”

This Land Is Your Land is a carefully chosen title for Navarro: it represents the vast expanse of the American landscape and a democratic society pursued by millions of people. Like Guthrie’s song, which repeats the phrase “This land was made for you and me,” Navarro’s hope is for access to this country by those who are foreign-born.

Artist Iván Navarro states: “I like the idea of a reservoir of water. This simple and timeless wooden structure contains water—the most primitive and elemental resource, the essence of human sustenance, and a reminder of the basic condition that all humanity shares. We must guarantee our water in order to survive. In that sense the water tanks are containers of primordial knowledge. Their form and material are equally archaic: they are simple circular huts with conical roofs, made of wood. Less obvious but nonetheless important is their reference to watchtowers due to their elevated position. Although they are benign objects, there is the sense that they are quietly surrounding us, surveying the city below. These water towers metaphorically function as tall ornamental crowns on the tops of the large buildings that dominate the urban landscape. They punctuate the glory of modern civilization while reclaiming its humanity.”

The Madison Square Park installation will coincide with the February 2014 release of the first monograph on Iván Navarro. Written by Cay Sophie Rabinowitz with contributions by Hilarie M. Sheets and Paul Kasmin Gallery, Iván Navarro will be published by Skira Rizzoli.
