David Altmejd’s latest exhibition focuses on the Jungian archetype of the trickster.

Presented at the White Cube in London, the Canadian sculptor invites visitors to see a brooding hare seated ominously in a yogic pose, ears stretched to the edge of space. The inspiration for the show comes from Carl Jung’s theory of the collective unconscious, where the Swiss psychiatrist examined the universal themes present in virtually every story of creation across art, literature and religion.

Among the various archetypes, the trickster has resurfaced throughout history – from Loki, the gender-changing trickster originating in Norse mythology; Eshu, the contradictory Yoruba character who navigates between heaven and hell. Likewise, for the indigenous peoples of Canada, known as First Nations, the trickster manifests as a rabbit, raven, or coyote, causing mischief wherever they go.

In his 1998 book, Trickster makes this worldauthor Lewis Hyde likened the trickster to a modern-day artist – “whose main concern is for food and it culminates in the same rapid mental development, skilled at creating and unmasking deception, able to hide his tracks and see through devices used by others to hide their own.

As with most of his past works, Altmejd attempts to free himself from the creative process by presenting a series of mythical busts, each infused with quartz crystals, which, like the yogic figure, transform the work into art in itself being detached from the mind of the artist. Installed on the lower level of the gallery, the plinths suggest an archaeological find or perhaps extraterrestrial specimens from experimentation. The figures are in a way a reflection of Altmejd’s personality, offering visitors a glimpse of the exhibition like a multi-faceted psychic self-portrait.

The eponymous show is presented in London until January 21.

Also on the bill, David Zwirner presents Frank Moore: five paintings.

Barbadian artists indeed shone on Thursday by bringing “The Tradition of Excellence” to life at the launch of the visual arts exhibition “Progression”.

Held at the Queen Park Art Gallery in the city, many came to view the artists’ work for the National Independence Festival of Creative Arts (NIFCA) showcase.

This year, the focus was on digital art, although many pieces were exhibited physically.

The Cultural Director of the National Cultural Foundation, Andrea Wells, informed that there will be greater interest in promoting art online to bring Barbadian art to the world.

The art gallery catered to a mixed crowd of seasoned award-winning artists and younger, up-and-coming ones.

Talk with Barbados TODAY was veteran visual artist Arlette St Hill who has been perfecting her craft for over four decades.

She explained how the pandemic had affected the ability to create, but added that she was very happy to be able to return for in-person exhibitions.

“COVID-19 has made a significant difference to the NIFCA experience. It has been over two years since we were able to participate. it’s always wonderful to come and see this exhibit here in person,” she said.

Ceramic artist and sculptor Melanie D’Oliviera said she was very proud of her pieces this year, some of which focused on the expression of tall women and the fruits of Barbados.

Well-known artist Sheena Rose gave an inspiring address that reminded artists that everything starts with an idea and it’s up to them to bring the idea to life.

She shared her inspiring story of the not always easy process of getting an idea from mind to paper.

Artists such as Tracy DeOlivere Greenidge with her impressive digital compilation, Jefferson Folkes with his 2003 piece also exhibited their art for the evening. life in transitionand Gloria Chung with her 2022 brown earthenware piece titled gifts from nature – to name a few.

The Progression exhibition continues until December 3. (M)

Andy Warhol. Jean-Michel Basquiat. Keith Haring. For the last century, these have been three of the biggest names in the art world and they have all been the subject of many exhibitions. But a single showcase will combine all three for a world-first 15-week celebration of pop art masters premiering here in Australia – and featuring more than 40 never-before-seen works Down Under.

This event : Masters of Pop: Art from the Mugrabi Collection, New York, which takes its name from the works it will survey and their origins. The exhibition is drawn entirely from the private collection of prominent art collector Jose Mugrabi and is set to take over HOTA, the home of the arts on the Gold Coast from Saturday 18th February to Sunday 4th June 2023.

Without surprise, masters of popAn array of works by Warhol, Basquiat and Haring will form an overview of the art scene of the 60s, 70s and 80s, and legends of the pop art and street art movements. There will be over ten pieces by Warhol, serving as an introduction to the showcase, with 1964 sixteen jackies and 1982 To cross among them. As for Haring, one of his very first works from 1979 will appear alongside others such as Untitled (Dancing Dogs)while the Basquiat coin range includes 1981s New York, New York and – fittingly – a Warhol-Basquiat collaboration.

Although the art by the three icons will provide masters of pop with its enormous drawcard, the exhibition also seeks to celebrate the continuing legacy of pop art alongside its origins. This means including pieces by Katherine Bernhardt, Kwesi Botchway, George Condo, Damien Hirst, KAWS, Barbara Kruger, Joel Mesler, Richard Prince, Tom Sachs, Julian Schnabel, Mickalene Thomas and Tom Wesselmann – like KAWS’ 2.8 meter tall 2018 carving What a partyplus Barbara Kruger’s If he sees, blind him, of a section of his 2009 installation Between being born and dying in the Lever House in New York.

Popular Masters: Art from the Mugrabi Collection celebrates the history of pop art, while examining its influence on art and artists today. We wanted to explore the intersections in the lives, ideas and practices of this important group of artists,” says Tracy Cooper-Lavery, Director, Gallery and Visual Arts at HOTA.

“Many of them have known, collaborated or been influenced by each other, and we have recognized this in the design of the exhibition, which will see these incredible works of art dialogue with each other. .”

masters of pop has been in the works longer than HOTA’s new, six-level, $60.5 million gallery opened — the site launched in 2021 — and marks the most prestigious exhibition the venue has ever hosted.

masters of pop took six years to prepare and HOTA is hosting an exclusive global exhibition right here on the Gold Coast,” said HOTA CEO Criena Gehrke.

“Over the years it has evolved into a bespoke exhibition that offers a very unique experience. Having access to the Mugrabi family’s personal collection is a real privilege and the artworks rarely leave New York. We We are delighted to bring these iconic artists and famous works of art to Australia for the first time.”

2023 is clearly a great year to be a Warhol fan and to see blockbuster exhibitions beyond Australia’s usual east coast capitals, with the Art Gallery of South Australia showcasing Andy Warhol & photography: social media from Friday March 3 to Sunday May 14.

The Formally Untrained opening reception proved to be an immersive showcase exploring the works of New York artists Katz and Barker. Together, these two artists present works in symbiosis to a highly organized crowd.

The public vernissage in October showcased the skills and talent of each artist whose work was represented. Ben Katz is constantly exploring new techniques and mediums and his work is continually innovating. Evident from the exhibits, his work uses various materials, including repurposed technologies and a wide variety of found objects. Some of the most recent methods are his work with ancient finds wrapped in pigmented encaustics, which create intricate three-dimensional works of art.

Observing Katz’s work will make you think about the ever-changing digital world and humanity’s increasingly symbiotic relationship with technology. Katz views his work as social commentary and uses it as an outlet for his often controversial views on modern life. This has been captured in beautiful and innovative ways during the gallery pieces on display.

Additionally, Jordan Barker is inspired by the feeling of touch and is inspired by the isolation of the pandemic. Each of us has seen our minds open up to new possibilities and explore new ideas – Barker did this by layering different materials and mediums on canvas, creating what is now a vast body of large-scale expressionist-style abstract pieces. Impressively, Barker created most of his work with his bare hands – his process created a unique sensory experience for his audience, making his work distinct to the touch.

The two curators, Dojchinov and Mehta, have a strong sense of storytelling and high-quality works of art that appeal to audiences from all walks of life, able to resonate with the works they experience.

By Nina Butterfield

The Gala Gallery in Durham has opened a new art exhibition until December 30 called ‘We Can We Will’. The exhibition, presented by Wider World Project (WWP) and artist Dawn Felicia Knox, features works by young adults who have additional support needs.

The project grew out of a workshop WWP members attended in 2019. The workshop centered around themes from the work produced by the late Norman Cornish, a Spennymoor-born 20th century mining artist. Members created works inspired by the workshop and compiled a small photography exhibit at the WWP headquarters at the Belmont Community Center.

Following the success of the initial workshop, local artist Knox was contacted to organize further workshops with WWP, which led to the birth of the “We Can We Will” project. Knox’s workshops focused on the use of multimedia art, including photography, painting, creative writing and filmmaking, much of which is reflected in the exhibition itself.

The exhibition features a diverse range of artwork produced by WWP members, including a series of photographs and a short film. The intention of the exhibition is to provide an outlet for young adults in need of additional support to “share how they see themselves and each other”.

The gallery features thought-provoking slogans reflecting a surge in positive disability awareness and a desire for a more progressive narrative around disability that recognizes the autonomy of those affected. A quote included in the exhibit reads: “My needs are not special, the way my needs are met may be different, but they are the same as everyone else’s.”

“We want to be seen, be part of the local community and make a difference in the world we live in”

WWP member

Participants in WWP workshops used writing prompts that asked them to choose a different aspect of themselves to express through words and pictures. Throughout their workshops with Knox, they learned photography and lighting techniques to create images representing their chosen aspect of themselves. Their responses to the initial prompts are included in the exhibit, some of which included “I like it”, “I’m not afraid” and “I enjoyed it all”.

The photographs and short films featured in the exhibition are described by WWP as “bright and cheerful” and convey a zest that the monotony of everyday life often lacks. Asked about the exhibition and the intention behind it, a WWP member said, “We want to be seen, to be part of the local community and to make a difference in the world we live in.

WWP is a grassroots organization that helps young adults with additional support needs living in County Durham. Group members work together to organize a wide variety of programs designed to build life skills, self-esteem and confidence and promote positive awareness of disability. Previous WWP events have included photography workshops and a harvest festival.

Dawn Felicia Knox is a Northeastern artist who works with mediums such as photography, painting, sound and sculpture. On her website, she describes that her art “reinterprets archival and found narratives by bringing them into a larger discussion of art, science, myth, and identity.” His work is featured in many museums and galleries in York, Newcastle and on the Yorkshire Coast.

Regarding her work with WWP, she said “it has been an honor and a joy to work with the group and share the skills needed to help them achieve their vision.”

The exhibition is available free of charge at Gala Gallery until Friday, December 30. It is open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Sunday from 2:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Childhood is the time when we come to know the world not through its existential concepts, a typical course of adulthood, but through its forms. This moment when memories, the unconscious and physical experiences begin to intersect is the starting point of Olivier Fiorenziit’s art. Among the most useful works for understanding the stylistic signature of the artist born in Osimo in 1992 is the Otto Cieli (Eight Skies), to be discovered until November 12 at The Address gallery in Brescia.
The element chosen by Fiorenzi to experience art as an unpredictable game is the kite, a toy but also a visual metaphor, produced in eight different versions, conceived as subjects and states of mind: chance, struggle, game, passion, fear, wonder. , discovery, contemplation.

Oliviero Fiorenzi’s eight kites are intended to be eight sensations, but also – as the title of the exhibition suggests – eight skies, as many visions of the world with precise geometric structures, colors and signs that intertwine , leading to new ways of flying. and react to the sky.
Kites have always fascinated me. – Says the artist – I think of the wind as a poetic motor, far from human control, capable of moving even mountains through time, impossible to control, only wanting to flow and blow. Along with the sea, the wind is one of the elements of the open space that I am confronted with. Always looking for the unpredictable variability that ends up modifying the installation-object-sculpture, completely beyond my control.

The artist documented the months spent experimenting with kite building techniques, documenting everything through photographic and audiovisual materials. The work of the Majocchi textile factory was important for the design.

The Mayor of Northampton has opened a Picasso-influenced art exhibition created by an upcoming artist from Northampton.

Dennis Meredith was on hand to open the exhibition by Northampton artist Bronwin Abas. The artist’s contemporary collections are currently on display at the Panel Gallery in Wellingborough Road.

Bright and colorful contemporary paintings depicting the faces of women and girls were influenced by the works of abstract artists such as Picasso, Salvador Dali and Franz Marc.

Two of Bronwin’s collections are currently on display: the Egyptian Collection and the Serendipity Collection.

Bronwin said: “In the Egyptian collection the paintings depict women from wealthy families with the choice of classical colors and shapes around the faces symbolizing the economic forces of the market in their surroundings. In the Innocence collection the faces are painted rather in a Picasso style with black outlines and in a surreal and abstract way.

“These paintings are about the social beginnings of young girls coming out into society, managing their money, having a new job and flirting for the first time. They are very optimistic and come from a girl’s point of view and their enthusiasm is depicted in the paintings. colors and shapes around them.

Bronwin, who lives in Northampton, has painted all her life, but has been painting professionally for six years.

Dennis Meredith added, “Many people attended the exhibition and commented on the paintings. Painted in bright, contemporary colors in an abstract style, the collection is worth seeing.

The paintings will be exhibited until Friday, October 29.
