Puncturing the dominating + standardized art circuit with the last episode of Everything We See Could Also Be Otherwise… at The Showroom, Sep 20 – Nov 11

19 September 2017

The Everything We See Could Also Be Otherwise (My Sweet Little Lamb) group exhibition is on at London’s The Showroom, opening September 20 and running to November 11.

Curated by What, How & for Whom (WHW), Kathrin Rhomberg and Emily Pethick in collaboration with the Kontakt Art Collection, the show takes its starting point with the Vienna-based collection, featuring seminal pieces by Mladen StilinovićJúlius KollerVALIE EXPORT and Geta Brătescu among others. It also creates a conversation with more contemporary works by Nika DubrovskyTim EtchellsVlatka HorvatDavid MaljkovićOscar Murillo and others.

The London iteration of the project is the final stage, with previous episodes shown in Zagreb, each contradicting and reinforcing the others. Bringing together “geographically and poetically heterogeneous artist practices,” the exhibition attempts to “punctuate standardized presentations and interpretations of works that have dominated international art circuits over the last few decades” with disorder and progressive re-imaginings.

Albert the kid is ghosting @ DRAF, Sept 25 – Dec 12

22 September 2015

David Roberts Art Foundation opens a new group exhibition of rarely seen artworks from their collection, titled Albert the kid is ghosting and occupying the whole DRAF building from September 25 to December 12.

Th group show features the works of Etel Adnan, Ida Applebroog, Philip Guston, Sergej Jensen, Hans Josephsohn, Oscar Murillo, Andreas Slominski and Michael E. Smith, who are introduced as “accomplices of an uncanny fiction”.

The exhibition transforms the art space into an “unsettling mise-en-scene of defiance: a crime scene”, presenting each work in a precisely-designed environment—from Josephsohn’s brass head to Guston’s wall of dark floral wallpaper.

See the exhibition page for details. **
