Intimacy Unguarded @ Freud Museum London, Feb 27

26 February 2016

A one-day symposium called  Intimacy Unguarded: Gender, the Unconscious and Contemporary Art is on at London’s Freud Museum on February 27.

Organised in collaboration with Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design’s research project examining “the personal as material in contemporary art and writing”, the event will explore the ways in which “gender, the unconscious and intimacy” become the basis for “contemporary art, critical writing and the dynamics of the consulting room.”

Running concurrently with Emma Talbot‘s Unravel These Knots exhibition at the museum, the London-based artist will present a paper of the same name, along with taking part in a Q&A with Joanne Morra. There will also be an ‘intimate reading’ of Marlene Dumas’ art practice and contributions from psychoanalytic psychotherapists Diana Caine and Denis Echard, artists Barbara Visser and Sadie Murdoch, and cultural analyst Griselda Pollock.

See the Freud Museum London website for details.**

DRKRM @ DAM Gallery, Oct 30 – Jan 16

30 October 2015

DAM gallery opens DRKRM, a new group show exploring GIFs as artworks, running at their Berlin space from October 30 to January 16, 2016.

DRKRM focuses in on the different aspects of GIF animation as art forms and their widespread distribution in the last few decades, becoming a kind of coded and somewhat sophisticated new language. “GIF animations”, the press release states, “are subject to specific principles”. The gallery in turn decided to use these principles to create a “Darkroom” of animations projected onto multiple screens.

Participating artists include Emma Talbot, Manfred Mohr, Faith Holland, Lorna MillsOlia LialinaDriessens & Verstappen, Kim Asendorf, and Anthony Antonellis.

‘Random House’ @ Arcadia Missa, Nov 20

18 November 2013

South London gallery Arcadia Missa present Random House, a group exhibition, on November 20, running to December 7.

Opening alongside the launch of online publishing initiative, publishing-house.me, the exhibition, featuring work by Bunny Rogers, Jill Magid, Jasper Spicero and Emma Talbot, continues the conversation around new forms of presentation by exploring “the relation between narrative and affect, as traced between objects and through various media”. In light of an apparent de-centralisation of knowledge structures, the presumed publishing group pun of Random House aims for a “poetic and material reconstruction” via the intimacy of works by emerging and established artist through technologies and beyond.

See the Arcadia Missa website for more information. **
