MiArt 2016, Apr 8 – 11

7 April 2016

Milan’s MiArt is on at Fiera Milano exhibition venue of the Italian city, running April 8 to 11.

This year the stated intention of the event is to communicate “constant references with explicit echoes” linking the past with the present and defined by a thematic thread running through interdisciplinarity, networks and “the Economics of Experiences”. Artist Massimiliano Bomba produced a video for the fair that touches on these notions in image and text, through a root analogy of beekeeping and nudges to the link between production and global destruction in ‘Octagon’ (2016): “Sunday, sabbath, rest. Monday, depressed.”

Exhibiting galleries will be split into sections: ‘Established’ (along with its ‘Masters’, ‘Contemporary’ and ‘First Step’ sub-sections), ‘Decades’, ‘THENnow’ and ‘Object’, along with ’Emergent’ curated by Berlin-based independent curator Nikola Dietrich.

Galleries and artists to keep an eye out for include Brand New Gallery with Ori Gersht, Josh Reames and Kate Steciw, Steve Turner with Jonas Lund, C L E A R I N G with Eduardo Paolozzi, as well as Rirkrit Tiravanija and Korakrit Arunanondchai in collaboration with Gavin Brown’s Enterprise.
Mathew Gallery will present work by Than Hussein Clark and Exile’s 2156 – Volume 237 Acta Zoologica presentation will show Martin Kohout, Nathalie Du Pasquier and Paul Sochacki.

Other booths worth a mention include Ellis King, The Gallery Apart, China Art Objects, dépendance, Anat Ebgi, Emalin, Greene Naftali, Emanuel Layr, König Galerie, Limoncello, Nicodim, and Room East.

Events running in parallel with the fair include Che cosa sono gli oggetti? with Enrico Boccioletti, Costanza Candeloro, Parasite 2.0 and others at Centro Tian Qi, and the  #C2CMLN 2016 live music festival featuring the likes of Babyfather and GFOTY.

See Bomba’s video below and the MiArt website for details.**

Grey @ Brand New Gallery, Jan 14 – Feb 20

13 January 2016

Brand New Gallery in Milan presents group exhibition, Grey, opening January 14 and running to February 20.

The exhibition title can be spoken about in many terms, and the press release for this show makes a list. As a colour it contains both black and white. It is neutral – and not white. If an object is at first grey, the human eye can apparently recognise it in many different colours thereafter. It is objective. The brain is grey matter. Grey is the colour of Kansas and Dorothy’s red shoes in the Wizard of Oz. Actually, grey is pretty open.

Curated by Domenico de Chirico, artists: Keith Farquhar, Jesse DarlingMartin Erik Andersen, Chris BradleyAnders Holen, Daniel Keller, Yves Scherer will share the space in response to ‘grey‘.

See the Brand New Gallery website for more details**
