Jan Merta | Museum Kampa

Feb 22 – May 25, 2020

Jan Merta is considered a painter who has surpassed the limits of his time, his paintings are membranes between the volatility, flow, and fleetingness of time and the permanence of items and phenomena. He is interested in the relationship between the world of art and the outside world (70% artist, 30% tram driver), he considers the boundaries of art and the possibilities of its perception. The current exhibition at Museum Kampa presents a collection of paintings from a series of portraits, landscapes, and events, which have not been previously exhibited in Prague.

Anri Sala | CENTRO BOTÍN

Dec, 14, 2019 – May, 03, 2020

Centro Botín in Santander, Spain, will present Anri Sala: AS YOU GO, a new exhibition by Albanian-born artist Anri Sala. The exhibition, curated by Benjamin Weil, Artistic Director of Centro Botín, will consist of three monumental installations occupying the entire second floor gallery, which reflect Sala’s enduring interest in the interplay between moving images, music, and architectural space. Anri Sala explores non-verbal forms of communication with innovative narrative techniques which he builds by means of the moving image, music, sound and the architecture of the exhibition space, creating a highly sensorial immersive experience for visitors.

David Claerbout | Galerie Rudolfinum, Prague

Jan 29 – Apr 12, 2020

Galerie Rudolfinum will open the exhibition Olympia (The real time disintegration into ruins of the Berlin Olympic stadium over the course of a thousand years) by David Claerbout.
Olympia is a computer-generated replica of the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, which finds itself in a time-space devoid of human intervention and entrusted to the cycles of nature. Following the original ‘ruinenwert’ theory, in which the stadium’s own decay has been pre-incorporated, Olympia invokes a cycle of creation to dissolution by the slow force of nature. Although the human element has been removed, it is re-introduced through the work’s synchronicity with our own life cycle. Olympia can be regarded as an attempt to measure biological duration against imaginary duration. By ‘biological duration’ we can understand the lifespan of a human being, and by ‘imaginary duration’ we can understand ideological time: the illusion to witness one thousand years.

Goshka Macuga | Museum Folkwang, Essen

Nov 08, 2019 – Mar 15, 2020

Goshka Macuga is part of the group exhibition The Assembled Human at Folkwang Museum, Essen. The show presents transcending media and epochs to explore the major societal issues and upheavals of the last 150 years. The Assembled Human presents art as a mirror of industrialisation, technologisation and digitisation. It provides a cultural-historical survey that encompasses key works of painting and graphic design, early experiments in photography, installations and films, along with recent works of Post-Internet Art.

Goska Macuga | MoMA

The Museum of Modern Art announces six long-term, site-specific contemporary artworks, on view in public spaces to celebrate MoMA’s opening on October 21, 2019. In Macuga’s commission, a monumental Jacquard tapestry installed in the Cullman Education and Research Building, the artist surrounds herself with images of over 100 works of art from MoMA’s collection and Archives, and her own work. This image evokes a photograph taken in 1954 of the French politician, publisher, and novelist André Malraux observing the layout of Le Musée imaginaire de la sculpture mondiale (The Imaginary Museum of World Sculpture). Malraux observed that museums “estrange the works they bring together from their original functions and . . . transform even portraits into ‘pictures.’” Inspired by time spent in MoMA’s Archives conducting research on the Museum’s collection and exhibition history, Macuga created her own layout of a book of an imaginary exhibition, Exhibition M. The work has been specifically produced for this space. The resulting tapestry frames the Museum and its collection as a living entity, open to reinterpretation and reevaluation.
