Julieta Aranda

Julieta Aranda @ der Tank, Nov 17 – Dec 16

14 November 2016

Julieta Aranda is presenting solo exhibition The Organ: As the Ground Becomes Exposed at Basel’s Der Tank, Institut Kunst, opening November 17 and running to December 16. 

The specially commissioned work is curated by Chus Martínez and looks at the space between language and image, offering up a new ‘organ’ of sorts that explores “the future of sculpture and perception while also more fully sensing the relationships that art establishes with the questions and debates populating our everyday lives.”

Recent exhibitions by Arlanda include Inhuman (2015) at Kassel’s Fridericianum and If a Body Meet a Body (2014) at Roma’s Galería OMR. 

See the Institut Kunst website for details.**

Transart Triennale 2016, Aug 5 – 7

5 August 2016

The free event and three-day programme, founded and run by artists, features exhibitions, performances, publications, screenings, workshops and seminars —as well as one-day symposium —responds to the increasingly nomadic nature of artists and artistic practice, questioning “how we live together in a global community”.

The project began in Vienna in 2003, then carried on to Los Angeles and is now in Berlin, where the theme this year is ‘The Imperceptible Self’, it will be documented in texts and contributions to be published in the third edition of ELSE – The Journal of International Art, Literature, Theory and Creative Media.

Events to look out for include:

A conversation about how “we live, work and think in the space between the no longer and the not yet” called Encounters, with Julieta Aranda and Elise Lammer, on August 5.

The Processed Beings: Intersubjectivity and Authorship group exhibition, curated by Lou Cantor and William Kherbek and running from August 5 to 6. It features the likes of Martin Kohout, Alex Turgeon and Anna Uddenberg, and includes an associated reading with Sarah M. Harrison, Felix Riemann and Tess Edmondson, plus more, on August 6.

Olivia Erlanger + Morphing Overnight @ Seventeen, Feb 26 – Apr 18

26 February 2015

Seventeen Gallery will be hosting two concurrent exhibitions – a solo show by Olivia Erlanger and a group show titled Morphing Overnight – at their London space, both running from February 26 to April 18.

Erlanger’s solo show, titled Meat Eater, begins with a transcript between a TL and an MH. “How should it begin?” asks TL. “It should begin with ‘do you remember’,” answers MH. From there, the two characters meander through what could be an art space, discussing symbolism and subjectivity, the “architecture for a history”, ending full circle with “I don’t remember.”

The Morphing Overnight group show – which invites six artists, comprised of Julieta ArandaDora Budor, Debora Delmar Corp.Yuri Pattison, Josh Harris and AIRBNB Pavilion with Emanuel Röhss – is curated by Attilia Fattori Franchini.

The opening on February 26 will be followed by an afterparty by AIRBNB Pavilion and  Life Gallery and hosted by [ space ] called Poppers in Dalston.
