Mumok, Wien
From May 6, 2017 to January 14, 2018

 

In parallel to his own exhibition at Mumok, Martin Beck is also presenting a new arrangement of works from the museum’s permanent collection. His selection focuses on works of the 1960s and 1970s and indicates a number of important influences on Beck‘s own artistic work. Abstract and figurative, and conceptual and painterly approaches are presented in often surprising combinations and exciting arrangements.

César Paternosto. Towards painting as object.
Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza
From November 13, 2017 to January 28, 2018

 

This exhibition establishes a dialogue between paintings by the Argentinean artist César Paternosto and works from the museum’s permanent collection.
Curated by César Paternosto himself, it analyses the shift in the pictorial paradigm which, at the start of the 20th century, led artists to rediscover painting as object, in contrast to the Renaissance illusionism that had transformed the canvas into a window through which to see visible reality.

Philippe Decrauzat: Delay

Philippe Decrauzat: Delay
Praz-Delavallade, Paris
From 14 October to 25 November 2017

 

Delay, Philippe Decrauzat‘s new series of paintings suggests that an aesthetic renewal may well be underway, but not one that entirely disrupts his artistic language, nor the narrative that he has been endeavouring to establish since his beginnings. If the form is unchanged, the spatiality of his work has evolved to adapt to a core derived from the same matrix. His aesthetic approach makes good use of the formal resemblance of which Heidegger was so fond, asking the fundamental question of humankind’s penchant for structuring itself in terms of its temporality and relationship to time.

Bill Fontana. Shadow Soundings
MAAT, Lisbon
From October 4, 2017 to January 18, 2018

Shadow Soundings, the new international commission for MAAT’s Oval Gallery, is an immersive sound and video installation by American artist Bill Fontana, which was created from the sounds and vibrations of the 25th of April Bridge and the Tagus River. In this installation, especially created for Lisbon, the artist captures the sonority of the bridge and surrounding areas – so familiar to the city’s residents – and amplifies them until they acquire a musical quality.
