The Breeder (Athens) presents a new installation by Dutch artist Marc Bijl, whose works are often statements about today’s social structures, misusing slogans, logos, symbols and codes, and thereby reflecting upon nationalism, terrorism or religious extremism. Galleria Raffaella Cortese (Milan) presents recent works of Anna Maria Maiolino, who is central to the development of late-20th-century art in Brazil and Latin America. Maiolino shows new videos and photographs discussing the role of women in a patriarchal society.
Galeria Salvador Diaz (Madrid) will present works by Teresa Margolles from the performances held at the Mexican Pavillon of this year’s Venice Biennale, including photography, cloths soaked in blood and mud from Mexican crime scenes together with a new video work by Marina Nunez. Galerist (Istanbul) exhibits two established Turkish artists, Mustafa Hulusi and Haluk Akakce. A new series of photo-realist oil-on-canvas-paintings by Hulusi will be juxtaposed to a presentation of Akakce’s sculptures, which marks an exploration of a totally new medium for the artist.
The Annet Gelink Gallery (Amsterdam) mounts a group show whose emphasis lies on story-telling, featuring paintings and videos by Meiro Koizumi, new conceptual works by Ryan Gander and collages and videos by David Maljcovic. Harris Liebermann (New York) presents a two-artist project with Simon Dybbroe Moller and Karl Haendel uniting their different approaches to art making. Galerie Mezzanin (Vienna) presents a dialogue of painted portraits by Katrin Plavcak and photographic works by Mandla Reuter, both artists sharing an interest in basic questions concerning image production, history and cultural politics.
Another group exhibition is on view at the booth of Nature Morte / Bose Pacia (New Delhi / New York) featuring works by three South Asian artists Jagannath Panda, Radhika Khimji and Suhasini Kejriwal, spanning several media – from large-scale paintings by Panda to the playful sculptures by Kejriwal to meticulous work on paper by Khimji. Prometeogallery (Milan) installs a group show on social investigation and historical transformation featuring a film by Rossella Biscotti, a sculpture by Regina Jose Galindo and a photographic series by Santiago Sierra, who illustrates the passing of time through a documentation of gypsies’ teeth. A dialogue between Miriam BackstrÃ¶m, Gardar Eide Einarsson and Superflex at the booth of Nils Staerk (Copenhagen) focuses on the concept of the art work challenging the role of an artist in contemporary society.
Reena Spaulings Fine Art (New York) brings together Matias Faldbakken, Claire Fontaine and K8 Hardy, each one an artist who has elaborated a particular way of interrogating the use of value in popular culture. Regina Gallery (Moscow) mounts a group show featuring Sergey Bratkow and Claire Fontaine both representing the debate about capitalist society in the International context. Bratkov’s photographs portraying every day life since the collapse of the Soviet Union are opposed to Fontaine’s new neon piece â€œAmerikaâ€ in their K. font.
Peres Projects (Berlin/Los Angeles) mounts a solo show of new works by Dan Attoe, presenting paintings and neon sculptures. His neon sculptures are illuminated renderings of his line drawings, which are drawn from the world depicted in his paintings, presenting road-side motels, dive bars, cartoon animals and imagined conflicts. Franco Soffiantino Gallery (Torino) installs a site-specific solo presentation of works by Michael Beutler, consisting of a 3,000-square-meter large rolled-up carpet. The viewer only sees the open end of the carpet, revealing the pattern and the different materials and colors woven into it, hinting at what there would be to see if the carpet would be unrolled.
SKE Gallery (Bangalore) shows a dialogue of two Indian artists by presenting a skeleton of a wooden boat by Sudarshan Shetty and a video projection of water, creating an image that is somewhere between a wave and a cloud, by Avinash Veeraraghavan. Three emerging Isreali artists – Sharon Ya’ari, Ofir Dor and Haim Almoznino – have a group presentation at the booth of Sommer Contemporary Art (Tel Aviv) each working in different media and each representing different stages in their career.
In her solo show at the booth of The Third Line (Dubai), Iranian artist Monir Sharhroudy Farmanfarmaian will install a new mirror mosaic, a medium that has been used in Iran as an architectural ornamentation since the eighteenth century. The installation will transform the space into an experience reflecting colour and light, continually shifting in response to the movement of the visitors. Vitamin Creative Space (Guangzhou) presents a joint project titled â€œInterior,â€ created by two Chinese artists Duan Jianyu and Huang He. The paintings by Duan and the installation by Huang form this â€œinteriorâ€ space and present a border where elements from daily life meet fantasy.
