Artissima 2016 recommendations, Nov 3 – 6

31 October 2016

The Artissima international fair of contemporary art is taking place at various locations across Turin, running from November 3 to 6.

Now in its 23rd edition, the renowned project brings together 193 galleries from 34 countries, and is host to over 52,000 visitors. Directed by Sarah Cosulich, this year’s Main Section of the fair will be held at the Oval in the glass pavilion that was originally built for the 2006 Winter Olympic Games.

The fair is split into seven sections: The Main Section, which includes 105 carefully selected galleries, Back to the Future, focussing on the re-discovery of avant-garde works, Present Future, dedicated to emerging artists, Per4m, devoted exclusively to performance art, New Entries for emerging galleries, and Art Editions, which hosts limited prints and editions, as well as Dialogue, a section for specific commissioned projects.

Tell Me What You Have… @ Dissect Journal, Aug 17 – 21

15 August 2016

The Tell Me What You Have and I Will Know What You Are group exhibition and launch of Dissect Journal 3 is happening in an Airbnb in Melbourne, opening August 17 and running to August 21.

Curated by Audrey Schmidt, the show features work by Anastasia Klose, Body by Body, Callan Bradley Hales, Cristine Brache, Eleanor Ivory Weber, Hana Earles, James Ferraro, Karen Finley, Katherine Botten, Katie West, Monica’s Gallery, Natasha Madden, Phebe Schmidt, Quintessa Matranga, Rare Candy, Ruth O’Leary and Tanja Ostojic.

The curatorial focus brings work together that responds to ‘the body’ as vessel, commodity, collective, institutional, and embodiment. The show will take place in a holiday rental room, a quasi lived-in space that merges public and private spheres.

See the FB page for more details.**
