U:L:O II @ Interstate Projects, Jul 14 – 31

11 July 2016

The  U:L:O group exhibition is on at New York’s Interstate Projects, opening July 14 and running to July 31.

The gathering sees Interstate invite three curators or curatorial project spaces to organise individual shows in the ‘Upper’, ‘Lower’, and ‘Outside’ of their space.

For U:L:O II, invited curators are London/ Vienna project space, Jupiter Woods who bring artists Corinna HelenelundLydia Ourahmane and Harry Sanderson with the title that a body knows regardless; Nichole Caruso and artists Kristen Jensen and Alina Tenser for Something Bright, Then Holes, and Young Adults, introduced by Al Bedell and featuring several artists including Clark Filo and Borna Sammak whose Town Crier solo exhibition at American Medium aqnb reviewed last month.

Each section comes with its own text —one a Dear Diary story and the other two more conventional press releases, suggesting that there is a looser structure within the tighter plan and that each curator/s will respond to the specificity of their allotted part and its architecture.

See the Interstate Projects website for further details.**

Natural Instincts @ Espace Arlaud, Dec 4 -18

4 December 2015

The Natural Instincts group exhibition is on at Lausanne, Switzerland’s Espace Arlaud, opening December 4 and running to 18.

Featuring a number of artists including Andrea CrespoTarik Hayward, Rodrigo HernándezJan Kiefer and Megan Rooney the exhibition focusses on artists growing up with the internet and its affects, adverse or otherwise, on our so-called ‘natural instincts’. As society and political systems seemingly collapse under the weight of a human-technology tension, the show’s theme actively and provocatively affirms “hyper-subjective artisanal practices” that apply to making the body “felt again, to bring the figure close to the object, and to bring the artist closer to his work”

Other artists taking part include Daniel Keller & Ella Plevin,  Magnus Andersen, Mathis GasserCarla Filipe, Gina FollyChristopher Kline, Lydia Ourahmane and Athena Papadopoulos.

See the FB event page for details.**
