In the coming week there is:

Maureen Gallace

303 Gallery

Opening 12 September – 31 October 2015

This marks the fifth exhibition of new paintings by Maureen Gallace. Her recent works find her training her eye on the sea, translating the simultaneously calm and unnerving duality inhabiting the coasts. Evoked by means of a deliberate yet improvisational hand, Gallace’s graceful marks make it feel as though time spent looking at the ocean has been stretched spontaneously, waves frozen into a hesitance that can exist only in memory or its evocation.

Bruce Nauman: Selected Works from 1967 to 1990

Gagosian Gallery

Opening 21 May – 26 September 2015

This exhibition presents key works by Bruce Nauman spanning three decades. Nauman’s radical interdisciplinary approach has challenged conventions while producing new methodologies for creating art and meaning. His rigorous, ascetic engagement with the existential dichotomies of life/death, love/hate, pleasure/pain has embraced performance, video, holography, installation, sculpture, and drawing. From the attitudes and forms of his Post-Minimalist and Conceptual work to his most recent sound installations, persistent themes and ideas appear: the use of the body as material; the relationship between image and language, art and viewer; and the generative interaction of positive and negative space.

Gavin Turk: Now

Somerset House

Open from 18 March 2015

This neon artwork, displays the median population of the world at the time of its initial illumination. The sign is intended by the artist as ‘a symbolic threshold: inviting visitors and observers to transcend through a fixed point in time as they pass underneath it into the building’s New Wing’. Turk describes the installation as an artwork which bears ‘testimony to each individual’s solitude, power, and transient existence as part of an unimaginably expansive whole.’ The installation of Now marks the opening of Somerset House’s New Wing, which has recently opened its doors to the public for the very first time in over 150 years.

Martin Creed

Hauser & Wirth

Opening 28 August – 31 October 2015

Featuring works made in wood, plastic, neon, wool, canvas and carpet tiles, the exhibition highlights Creed’s innovative approach to a broad range of materials and his ongoing fascination with the commonplace. For Creed, there is no border between life and art. His approach means that he can use any form of expression or media, since the key element for him is the process of creation – in his words, ‘trying to live life better’. Frequently he will make works that develop out of a set of instructions or rules he imposes on himself. Seeing what happens when certain components are tied down is typical of the playful spirit in which he lets his ideas develop.

Agnes Martin

Tate Modern

Opening 3 June – 11 October 2015

This is Martin’s first retrospective since 1994, covering the full scope of her practice. It includes early experiments with different media that have been little seen. Renown for her evocative paintings that utilise subtleties in line and colour washes, Agnes Martin was deeply moved by the emotive and expressive power of art, believing that it is spiritual inspiration that made for great work, not intellect. She imposed deliberate limitations to her practice to try and distill what she felt constituted works of art – awareness of beauty, innocence and happiness.

Kunsthalle Mannheim

Opening 12 June – 6 September 2015

The exhibition is titled after the term ‘New Objectivity’, coined by then-Director Gustav Hartlaub in 1925 for a show of the same name at Kunsthalle Mannheim. It emerged as a movement that stood apart from the Expressionist’s idiosyncratic use of colours and shapes. Instead they pursued a naturalistic and veristic presentation of form. They prefer factual representations, landscape and political themes.

Opening 5 May – 1 August 2015

This exhibition has at it’s core a participatory train experience. A train track with a downscaled freight train which one can ride, takes a route that cuts through the main gallery of the Watts Institute. With graffiti on the sides of the carriages, the train transports the rider, thereafter transformed as bundles of information, throughout the exhibition. The passenger rides past a series of photographs and accompanied texts on the gallery walls. The show investigates bodily engagements with machines, objects and technology, focusing a lot on hands – proposing a new semiotic that has arrived with Smart technologies.

<span style=”color: #7b68aa;”>Jung Uk Yang: A Man Without Words</span>

DOOSAN Gallery

Opening 2 July – 27 August 2015

Jung Uk Yang’s solo exhibition deals with the narratives of the people he encounters, probing the human sentiments that are revealed through storytelling. The title of the piece references the monotonous and mundane lives lived by unspoken people. Some works are in direct reflection of particular people he meets, such as the apartment security guards in South Korea who must fight to stay awake while everyone else is asleep in his work titled ‘A Fatigue Always Comes with a Dream’ (2013). Yang works with installation art, light art and kinetic art.

<span style=”color: #7b68aa;”>Conrad Shawcross: Manifold, in the Park and Gallery</span>

New Art Centre

Opening 23 May – 26 July 2015

This is Conrad Shawcross’ first exhibition at the New Art Centre. His practice is embedded with scientific rationality and often takes redundant theories and diverse materials to create modular and sometimes mechanical structures that are ambitious and theoretically open to infinite extension. A series of sculptures on display are based on the fourth platonic solid, the dodecahedron. In this work he experiments with the solidity of planes and lines with varying configurations. His fascination with the Big Bang theory has inspired him in his ‘Plosion Series’. In this, he attempts to visualise what such an event would be like through sculptural form.

His running area of research is on the nature of “things” and how they reflect our relationship between the self and our environment.

<span style=”color: #7b68aa;”>I Spy with My Little Eye</span>

The Mosaic Rooms

Opening 11 July – 22 August 2015

A new group exhibition curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath of Art Reoriented, I Spy with My Little Eye explores a shift in artistic practice and concerns through the works of a fiercely new and independent generation of artists connected to Beirut. All the artists on show were born after the Civil War in 1975, not having experienced the time of peace prior to the war. What sets this group of artists out is their new set of semantic practices that is removed from the preceding generation’s focus on archives and documentation. The exhibition is broad in disciplines imbued with a sense of transience and fragility, including works in video, sculpture, photography and installation.

Tony Cragg

Lisson Gallery

29 May – 18 September 2015

This is Tony Cragg’s first exhibition at Lisson Gallery’s Milan branch. It displays several new bronze, wood and stone sculptures plus a number of works on paper. The sculptures stand upright and hold complex and dynamic forms, often polymorphic in recognition. They contain movement, growth and a sense of wonder. His work explores the relationship between the rational dynamic of materials and our subjective response to material forms. This echoes Cragg’s philosophy of not only how he views sculpture, but how he believes we primarily experience the world.

Opening 2 May – 16 July 2015

The centrepiece to this show is Gaillard’s major new film, Nightlife (2015). It was shot at night over two years in Cleveland, Los Angeles and Berlin.

Through examples of immigrant plants in Hollywood, Gaillard explored globalisation and the notion of the Global Village.

This exhibition also brings to the fore the current age of social media; mass communication, distribution and interpretation.

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.
