Katsumi Hayakawa

Katsumi Hayakawa, born 1970, constructs tri-dimensional worlds made of paper. His works are abstract representations of our de-individualised cities, in which we live and work but do not manage to establish relationships. The buidlings of our cities are the containers and décor of the “absence of existence, the absence of nothingness and the absence of the absence of absence”. LINK Katsumi Hayakawa

Péter Forgács

Looming Fire

Stories from the Netherlands East Indies (1900–1940)

@ EYE October 5 - December 1, 2013

The Hungarian filmmaker Péter Forgács is considered to be one of the most outstanding found-footage filmmakers. He is best known for the way he ingeniously compiles new work based on amateur films. Forgács created a genre of its own, one which serves to put historical events in a new perspective. His highly individual adaptations of authentic family and amateur films, including those made for the series "Private Hungary" (1988 - 2008), were once described by a critic as a mix of 'anthropology, theatre, documentary and private diary.' In 2007 Forgács was awarded the Erasmus prize for his contribution to the 'culture and historical consciousness of Europe.' So far he has more than forty films to his name, including The Maelstroom, Angelos' Film, Miss Universe 1929 and El perro negro, as well as three major installations. LINK EYE

Kerry James Marshall

Painting and Other Stuff 
  4 October 2013 - 2 February 2014

A long-time resident of Chicago, Kerry James Marshall is widely regarded as one of the greatest painters of his generation. Strongly influenced by his experiences as a young man, Marshall developed a signature style as an artist, centring on the life and history of the black subject. His now-substantial body of work offers his perspective on the complexity of the African-American condition, along with its persistent issues of race politics, cultural representation and social emancipation. In an attempt to reconcile the black subject with images of Western ideals, Marshall places both in his paintings, highlighting determinations of black identity that are contextualised by history and the current social-political situation. Also addressing the history of art, Marshall strives to fill what he describes as the 'lack in the image bank' with his work, whilst raising pertinent questions about how the art system sustains itself and the related issues of legitimation, power and marginalisation. LINK M HKA

Tony Ray-Jones

American Colour 1962–1965 
A digital edition of Tony Ray-Jones' previously unpublished colour work.

American Colour 1962–1965 is a carefully edited selection Tony Ray-Jones' colour photographs from the earliest period of his work. Taken from the extensive archives held at the National Media Museum in Bradford, this book brings together the early experiments that would inform his later work. 

Ray-Jones arrived in America in 1961 on a scholarship to Yale to study graphic art and he returned to England four years later. It was in America that he learned to be a photographer. Among New York's street parades, on Fifth Avenue, in Times Square, Chinatown and Little Italy he learned to extract individual moments from a crowded backdrop—to find order in the chaos of the street. At the time colour was considered vulgar and not the medium of serious photography, but for Ray-Jones it expressed the excitement of America in a way that black-and-white could not. LINK mappeditions

Adrian Ghenie and Navid Nuur

On the Road to ... Tarascon 
20 Sept  - 14 Dec, 2013 Opening: 20 Sept, 17 - 22 h

Galeria Plan B is happy to announce the exhibition On the Road to ... Tarascon, the materialization of the conversation between the Romanian painter Adrian Ghenie and the post-conceptual Iranian-born Dutch artist Navid Nuur, unfolding over the last few years.

The two artists met in the context of the gallery's program and new episodes in their dialogue were occasioned over time by group exhibitions and art fair presentations. This is in tandem with the mission of the gallery, to be a locus of conversation and collaborative research. LINK Galleria Plan B

Kent and Vicki Logan Galleries
September 10, 2013 to December 14, 2013

The exhibition City of Disappearances dramatizes this shared resemblence of the world's cities by borrowing the title of Iain Sinclair's psycho-geographic "anthology of absence" written by and about London. The exhibition imagines a transposition and exchange of the living-imaginary of London conjured in Sinclair's book with the fictions and myths of San Francisco. This conceptual and metaphorical exchange will be followed by a real one as the exhibition travels to London in 2014, where it will be renamed Infinite City after Rebecca Solnit's almanac of San Francisco. LINK Wattis

Pablo Bronstein


13.09 - 24.11.13 OPENING: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 6 P.M.

The Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève is pleased to present the first solo show of Pablo Bronstein in Switzerland and the first retrospective of its architectural drawings. Performance plays an important dimension in Bronstein work and will be an integral part of the exhibition at the Centre. Pablo Bronstein is interested in the links between classical architecture and contemporary urbanism, between settings and decors, between art and dance. Through drawing, sculpture, video and performance, he looks at the historical otherness in order to unveil the links between power, fascination and classical art. His work often combines references to history of architecture- from the Roman antiquity and the Baroque to Neo-classicism and Post-modernism, as well as hints to history of art - from the Renaissance to the Modern period. LINK Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève

The still Untitled project comes from artist Kowalski personal need to change the world, to show how the city of Rome has changed over the decades and how it’s grown into an incredibly busy and complex metropolis. Each image consists of 3 to 5 photographs taken at different times and representing different architectural periods. 
Put together, they fall into places, dance with each other in an unexpectedly symbiotic way, co-existing in the mosaic of shapes and colors, symbolizing strength, diversification and synergy of the Rome as we know it today. LINK kowalski

Carl Michael von Hausswolff: I am the Others

7 September - 3 November 2013

Carl Michael von Hausswolff was born in 1956 in Linköping, Sweden. He lives and works in Stockholm, and had since the end of the 70s worked as a composer using the tape recorder as his main instrument. He has often collaborated with other artists (such as Erik Pauser, Leif Elggren, Andrew McKenzie, Johan Söderberg, Zbigniew Karkowski, Graham Lewis, David Jackman, Jean-Louis Huhta and Kim Cascone). He devised the concept and is the curator of the Freq_Out sound collective. Hausswolff's audiovisual works have also found outlets in pictorial art. On the 27th of May 1992 at 12 Noon GMT, alongside Leif Elggren, he proclaimed the Kingdom of Elgaland-Vargaland, a new country established as a work of art. LINK Lunds konsthall

Rebetiko, plural rebetika, (Greek: ρεμπέτικο, pronounced [reˈbetiko] and ρεμπέτικα respectively), occasionally transliterated as Rembetiko, is a term used today to designate originally disparate kinds of urban Greek folk music which have come to be grouped together since the so-called rebetika revival, which started in the 1960s and developed further from the early 1970s onwards. LINK ρεμπέτικο
