We have rounded up a selection of upcoming shows for you to see brought to you in a regular weekly snapshot
In the coming week there is:
Elmgreen & Dragset: STIGMA
Massimo De Carlo
Opening 3 May – 27 June 2015
This is Elmgreen & Dragset’s third exhibition at Massimo De Carlo gallery. It features a new series of works titled Side Effects composing of numerous bespoke glass vases, filled with the actual pigments used to coat the pills in the latest generation of HIV medicine. The vases recall the shape and emotive responses you get with urns, while the content of each vase adds a socioeconomic kick. The colours of the vases evoke a sense of innocence put across by it’s harmless façade and attractive, candly-like appearance, contradicting the toxic reality of the medications.
Massimo De Carlo
Via Giovanni Ventura 5
Opening 14 May – 20 June 2015
Altay’s work concerns itself with physical and imagined civic spaces. His works probe the conditions and settings for a community to exist. In this show the artist looks at the ambiguous moments prior to the establishment of such spaces, capturing the unseen thresholds before affirmation and destruction sets in.
87 Lever Street
Talia Chetrit: I’m Selecting
Sies + Höke Galerie
Opening 12 May – 19 June 2015
This is Chetrit’s second exhibition at Sies + Höke and contains two bodies of work. The first is composed of 13 images shot on the streets of New York City and Paris. The second is a suite of nude self-portrait photographs, taken with a mirror that depicts the artist in her studio. These intimate photographs, tightly cropped and grainy, set a discourse on the concepts of the public and private realms, voyeurism and architecture.
Sies + Höke
Tauba Auerbach + Charlotte Posenenske: Reciprocal Score
Opening 23 April – 11 July 2015
This two person exhibition explores the practice of co-authorship. Based upon Posenenske’s series of square tubes, the configuration is determined by the curator, collector and public. The artist’s work is both call and response to the other, encouraging dialogue.
Via dei Mille, 6
Keith Edmier: Regeneratrix
Opening 9 May – 20 June 2015
This is the artist’s first large-scale exhibition in Petzel gallery in ten years. Rather than pinpointing a single socio-historic time or happening, Regeneratrix features an array of monumental sculptures that allude to a multiplicity of histories, as well as the artist’s recent past. Edmier puts particular attention on the material signifiers, as much as it’s form, bringing references from a plethora of understandings.
456 W, 18th Street
New York 10011
Studio For Propositional Cinema: We Will Be Playing Here Every Day Until The End Of The World
Tanya Leighton Gallery
Opening 1 April 2015 – 31 March 2115
The Studio For Propositional Cinema has begun what they consider to be a show that stretches one hundred years. This conceptual exhibition begins with ‘Bonjour An Langage’, a one hundred part textual recital, performed over one hundred weeks at unannounced intervals from the elevated office window at the Tanya Leighton Gallery. Everything and everyone is invited to this two year-long declaration. Beyond that, the work metaphysically continues through the incorporeal connection between the gallery and the Studio For Propositional Cinema, encompassing all things related with the two entities for the remaining colossal exhibition period.
