Les "true stories" de la photographie américaine
American photography forms an extensive and simultaneously top-quality focal point in the collection, of which a selected overview is now being exhibited for the first time. The main interest of young photographers, who have been examining changes in political, social and ecological aspects of everyday American life since the late 1960s, has been the American social landscape. Oscillating between individual world views, analytical stock-taking and conceptual strategies, they have developed new stylistic devices that define a pictorial style perceived as genuinely American.
Whereas Lee Friedlander, Garry Winogrand, Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz and Larry Clark, who are now considered classical modern photographers, have remained true to black-and-white photography, William Eggleston and Stephen Shore in particular have...
Regen Projects II - Dan GrahamRegen Projects is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Dan Graham. Graham's multidisciplinary practice consists of writing, film, video, performance, photography, architectural models, installations, and glass and mirror structures. Using interlocking ideas of humor, inter-subjectivity, and perception Graham challenges the constantly shifting relationship of the viewer to the work. Exploring the boundaries of physical and social spaces, Graham shows the various apparatuses of how we see in relation to the nature of art and social experience. The exhibition will feature a large pavilion, models, video works, and photographs.
Graham's large-scale, quasi-functional pavilions investigate the double functions of inside and outside and experiment with ways in which opposing forces interact. Working with t...
Middle Man by Dan Graham, Nicolas Guagnini et John MillerMiddle Man: A person who functions as a social and economic intermediary in the exchange between producer and retailer or consumer. The term is historically, but not necessarily, gendered. This exhibition, Middle Man, includes recent works from artists who are colleagues and collaborators; it examines the input and output of their various exchanges.
Dan Graham's photographs of interiors and suburban architecture see the artist revisiting New Jersey, the site of his Homes for America series and the locus of much of his interest in social inside- and outside-ness. Nicolas Guagnini's Neurotic series are snapshots of pairings of women that explicitly depict contemporary gender roles as produced by commerce space. Middle of The Day is John Miller's lifelong project comprising photographs taken between the hours ...
Che cosa sono le nuvole? Artworks from the Enea Righi CollectionThe Museion venue welcomes the Righi Collection, one of the most significant private collections of contemporary art, which to date has only been exhibited at the Collection Lambert in Avignon, France. The arrival of the collection represents an important exhibition opportunity for Museion, thanks to a ten year deposit of works in the museum.
The presentation of a selection of works from the Righi Collection aims to elicit reflections on the encounter between the public dimension and the intimate sphere of a private collection. The artists present in both collections, including Roni Horn (NY, 1955), Jana Sterback (Prague, 1955), Robert Barry (NY, 1936), Alighiero Boetti (Turin 1940 – Rome 1994) and Miroslaw Balka (Warsaw, 1958) represent the numerous convergences of vision between the museum and the private coll...
TEA (Tenerife Espacio de las Artes)TEA (Tenerife Space for The Arts) shows the exhibition Mexico Expected/Unexpected, curated from works in the Isabel and Agustin Coppel Collection (CIAC).
The exhibition was curated by Monica Amor, with Carlos Basualdo as her main advisor. Basualdo is the curator of Topological Gardens the Bruce Nauman exhibition at the USA Pavilion for the 53rd. Venice Biennial.
The CIAC is one of the most important modern and contemporary art collections in Mexico, and it includes artworks by some major Mexican and international artists.
The curatorial work for this exhibition was based on the inclusive nature of the CIAC collection, regarding the nationality of the artists, which allowed for an exploration of the concept of Mexican culture as it is represented in art and the way in which other proposals—not originated in...
Dan Graham Presents New JerseyDan Graham Presents New Jersey displays new photographs by Dan Graham, produced in collaboration with the architecture faculty of Columbia University in New York, alongside photos of the series Homes for America from 1966. The photos were already taken in the early 1960s in the style of an amateur or photojournalist with an inexpensive and wieldy Kodak camera. They depict suburban homes, commercial premises and urban fringe zones in New Jersey, places that show the common and unspectacular, but also uniform America. Graham notes: "I bought an Instamatic, the cheapest fixed-focus camera. At one point the gallery was running into debt and I had to leave and stay with my parents outside of New York. On the way, the train went through a low-income suburban area. It struck me that with no money I could still walk along t...
