Throughout Frieze Art Fair and through
the shiny, shiny windows of Berkeley Square’s Rolls Royce showroom, you
can currently spot the building blocks of Turner Prize nominee, Angela
Bulloch’s installation, Cipher of L.
On October 12, 2014, Lisa Cooley (located at 107 Norfolk Street, NYC), hosted a poster hanging and reception for the
Newspaper Reading Club, New York Poster Project, the third in a series
of offsite projects, developed in collaboration with Fiona Connor and
First established in 2011 by Fiona Connor and
Michala Paludan, the Newspaper Reading Club is an ongoing project that
takes many forms including; performances, radio broadcasts, publications
and posters. Central to the project is an investigation of how people
retrieve their news and how they engage with larger narratives of
'Cipher of L' by Angela Bulloch at Rolls-Royce's Berkeley Square Showroom.
A sculpture of
flashing ‘pixel boxes’ lights up the Mayfair showroom of Rolls-Royce for
the duration of Frieze. Berlin-based artist Angela Bulloch's one-off
piece has the same dimensions, and a similar level of craftsmanship, as a
Rolls-Royce Phantom. Bulloch went to the Rolls-Royce workshop in
Goodwood to seek inspiration, and was ‘impressed by the technology and
quality of leatherwork and veneers that go into the making of all their
cars’. Using LEDS for the first time, she adds: ‘The light programme
that runs through my 'Cipher of L' piece uses a range of secret colours
usually found on the exterior of Rolls-Royce's cars and the work will
have a puzzling pattern that nearly never repeats.’
LONDON.- Fiona Banner's project for PEER has been in response to an invitation to collaborate with the London-based Archive of Modern Conflict. Rather than delving into the archive to draw out, spotlight or re-contextualise specific material for special scrutiny, Banner has elected to commission a new body of work by award winning Magnum photographer Paolo Pellegrin who she briefed to explore the City of London and to reflect its activities, behaviours, customs and costume through the lens of conflict photography. In a subversion of roles, Banner will then present a selection of these images to be accessioned into the archive, to be filed under the heading Heart of Darkness, 2014.
Pilar Corrias presents With a Rhythmic Instinction to be Able to Travel Beyond Existing Forces of Life, Philippe Parreno's third solo exhibition at the gallery. Comprising four new automatons, the show is Parreno's first in the UK since his 2010 solo exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery. The exhibition centres around the titular work, a new automaton assembled from hundreds of drawings created by Parreno over the last four years, each depicting the same insect: a firefly or luciola (small light), that is brought to life on a large LED screen.
Exhibition is on view October 14-November 14, 2014.

"A Proximity of Consciousness" Celebrates Art and Activism in Chicago"
"A Proximity of Consciousness" is currently on view at Chicago's School of the Art Institute. Part of a larger two-month long SAIC programming initiative called "A Lived Practice," the show features an expanding art movement that appears to be steadily gaining greater institutional and commercial support.
A show of 10 large-scale commissioned works by artists Jim Duignan, Pablo Helguera, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, Dan Peterman, alt-historians Pocket Guide to Hell, J. Morgan Puett, Michael Rakowitz, "legislative artists" Tamms Year Ten and Laurie Jo Reynolds, the art collective Temporary Services, and Rirkrit Tiravanija, the exhibition illustrates the bourgeoning influence of what UCLA art historian Miwon Kwon has called "art in the public interest." Unsurprisingly, more than half of the artists are SAIC alumni. "Social practice has been fundamental to the Chicago arts scene for more than 100 years," Jacobs told the Art Newspaper, invoking the example of Jane Addams's pioneering social work at Hull House (now a city museum), John Dewey's writing on school reform, and the lasting impact of Chicago's labor movement. According to Jacobs, in Chicago at least "socially engaged art practice is not taken as a passing art style." - Christian Viveros-Fauné via http://news.artnet.com
Angela Bulloch's 6 Chains: Permutation B (52:4 — White), 2002
ABU DHABI // Artwork from the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi collection will be on display for the first time at an upcoming exhibition that highlights light itself.
The Seeing Through Light exhibit opens at Manarat Al Saadiyat in November and showcases 16 works from the collection as well as two pieces on loan from the institution in New York, the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority (TCA) said on Wednesday.
The selections are a "stepping stone" for the future museum, "where the art presented will be structured under the same transcultural perspective, manner and philosophy," she said.
Artists represented include Iranians Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian and YZ Fami, as well as Algerian Rachid Koraichi, Canadian Angela Bulloch, American Robert Irwin and the late German artist Otto Piene.
The theme of light is to be more fully explored in the museum itself, TCA said. Renowned architect Frank Gehry's design for the museum is "a monument to light", the authority said.
Curators from the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi and TCA organised the exhibition.
The Guggenheim Abu Dhabi is scheduled to open in 2017 as part of the Saadiyat Island Cultural District, where the Zayed National Museum, Performing Arts Centre and Louvre Abu Dhabi are also planned to open.
Seeing Through Light is free of charge and runs from November 5 to January 19.
"Banner excels at realising ostensibly simple ideas on a grand scale, allowing them to suggest any number of allusions and hidden significances. At first, her monumental installations provoke a gut reaction, rather than a cerebral one. The work hits you over the head – but it sticks fast inside and colours the way you look at everything around you. I was driven to laugh and cower for roughly equal parts of my visit to Wp Wp Wp. To be clear, I don't feel that is something I could write about many other contemporary art exhibitions." -Digby Warde-Aldam
Angela Bulloch visiting the home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has announced a new installation by Angela Bulloch entitled Cipher of L. to be presented at the marque's London showroom in Berkeley Square. The work will be unveiled on Thursday 9 October 2014 and will be shown for three weeks to coincide with Frieze Art Fair. Cipher of L. takes the form of a 'Pixel Box' installation that mimics the properties of a Rolls-Royce motor car. Angela Bulloch is known for her interest in systems, patterns and rules, and the creative territory between mathematics and aesthetics. This new installation will incorporate certain physical, as well as conceptual, elements of a Rolls-Royce motor car, exploring the relationship between art, technology and craftsmanship.
The exhibition TL;DR ("too long; didn't read") traces the use of readily available popular media by a range of contemporary artists.
Los Angeles based writer and curator Michael Ned Holte has included artists who engage these media, from tumblr, to text messaging, from Craigslist to chat roulette, as a way to create meaning in the highly coded, libidinal spaces of contemporary communication.

The show features the collection of Randy Shull and Hedy Fischer, as well as, other works by leading artists from Latin America.
Rirkrit Tiravanija is presenting "Demo Station No 5", inviting visitors to watch and participate in cultural activities as part of the 10th anniversary exhibition of the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art.
A "contemporary recreation" of Friedrich Kiesler's "Space Stage" from 1924, Rirkrit, 53, has reinvented it as an "open station" where visitors can watch performances, interact with each other or just relax.
"I want people to move around like they are in their daily life. Part of my interest is always to break down the distance between what we think of as art or high art and what we do in our daily life," he says.
The two-story wooden stage serves as the venue for fashion shows, concerts and performances - unusual events for a quiet museum. There will be concerts of classical music, Korean traditional music and alternative music, with performances by professional dancers. At the same time, the audience can use it as their own playground, their own stage for piano performances, and a classroom, where they can learn how to play different drums from around the world.
"Demo Station No 5" is at the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art until December 21.

Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) presents Wp Wp Wp, an exhibition by UK artist Fiona Banner from 20 September 2014, featuring ambitious new project, Chinook. The installation, accompanied by related work, is described by the artist as the culmination of a body of work started nearly two decades ago. Wp Wp Wp, the onomatopoeic name of the exhibition, is inspired by the sound of helicopters as portrayed in comic books and film storyboards.
Highlighting the absence of a helicopter's body, Chinook, is formed from two sets of helicopter blades – suspended from the ceiling of YSP's 480m2 Longside Gallery – rotating in opposition to one another. Hovering just above visitors' heads as if the building were preparing for lift off, the blades are carefully choreographed and overlap giving the sensation that they might collide. Its impact is both mesmerising and unnerving.
As Banner explains: "the Chinook helicopter is an engineering phenomenon. It is visually a contradiction; it looks clumsy and prehistoric, and yet is able to perform the most extraordinary aerodynamic function. When in motion the rotor blades at the front and back of the aircraft appear to collide and pull the vast craft in opposite directions. To me, this somehow parodies the dilemma and contradiction at the heart of our relationship with the military and its hardware."
Chinook has been developed with the support of Dr Osvaldo Querin, Associate Professor at The University of Leeds School of Mechanical Engineering, who with colleagues and a group of masters students, worked with Banner to carry out aeronautical research critical to the project.
Related works reveal Banner's consideration of film, text and the mythologies of conflict. These include site-specific work spanning the huge windows of the gallery that gives an unreal sense of the landscape beyond, as well as Mirror, Banner's 2007 film in which actress Samantha Morton reads the artist's nude portrait of her, rendered in word not image; and All the World's Fighter Planes, 2005/6, a film that animates newspaper clippings of all of the aircraft in commission around the world at that time, set to a score of music taken from classic war films.
A YSP publication, designed by the artist with text by Chrissie Isles, Curator at the Whitney Museum of Art, New York, accompanies the exhibition.
The exhibition is supported by Outset, The Henry Moore Foundation, Frith Street Gallery and University of Leeds.
Of all the ways Mike Kelley has been celebrated for his pivotal contributions to contemporary art, since his death on January 31, 2012, his impact as an educator may be the most significant aspect of his legacy to go relatively unexamined, if not unsung. Kelley was a faculty member of Art Center's Graduate Art Department from 1992 to 2007. And during his time teaching at Art Center, Kelley mentored such monumental talents as video artist Diana Thater (who now chairs the department from which she graduated), multimedia artist Pae White, installation artist Jennifer Steinkamp and Fine Art faculty member Jean Rasenberger.
In the above video, inspired by Kelley's MOCA retrospective, these artists examine the ways in which Kelley influenced the kind of artists they've become, the work they create and, perhaps most importantly, how they go about crafting and sustaining a life as an exhibiting artist. Kelley has often been credited with helping raise the clout and visibility of LA's art scene when his career took off and he declined to follow the well-worn path previous west coast supernova artists had followed to New York. As one of the first internationally acclaimed artists to root himself in Los Angeles, Kelley was, in essence, laying the groundwork for his students and their contemporaries to do the same.
If these artists' upwardly-tilting career paths are any indication, Kelley's impact on his students, his city and his creative discipline only gets deeper as time goes on.

50 Shades of Blue, Green, Everything
by Frank Rose
July 31, 2014
New York Times
Art and adversity are old friends. When Kate Ericson and Mel Ziegler, currently the subject of a poignant exhibition at Galerie Perrotin on Madison Avenue, were starting out as artists, straitened circumstances meant they had to take house-painting jobs to pay the rent. They found themselves fascinated by houses, colors, event the names of colors: subjects that became the focus of a joint career...
It's not the first time Paul Winstanley's work has been featured on Thisispaper - avid readers may remember our awe at his Art School project. His photorealistic paintings never cease to impress and deserve another post with a wider selection of his works. Cinematic frames, melancholic colours, nameless protagonists- these are the building blocks of the painter's unique style. Empty hallways, waiting rooms and other desolate places seem to be recurring settings for his paitings, but there are some unusual captures, too - such as scenes from communist China. Lanscapes and seasons in his works may vary, but the Paul Winstanley-esque poetic atmosphere is always there.
"Philippe Parreno, artist: ' I had to write rather than
draw to understand something'
by Karen Wright / Thursday 17 July 2014
Philippe Parreno lives and works in Paris in the 11th arrondissement, close to the Place du Republique. He located here four years ago because "we got a cheap place".
Originally he had one space but recently took over a second so he could separate his exhibtition-making from the archiving and drawing. Today, despite being searingly hot, it feels cold, like entering Batman's cave with its coved ceiling and neatly ranged computers, the only anachronism being a small grand piano. His second space across a small passage is brighter and is where Parreno has been drawing recently.
Best known for canvases with electric colors and bold patterns, Chicago artist Judy Ledgerwood has increasingly ventured into the realm of installation in recent years, painting directly on gallery walls to create enveloping works. She took her practice further than ever in her latest installation, Chromatic Patterns for the Graham Foundation (2014), which filled a two first first-floor rooms of the 1902 Madlener House, the urban Prairie School landmark where the Graham Foundation -- which mounts three exhibitions this year promoting the role of architecture in a large cultural context -- has its headquarters.

"Solaris Chronicles: an exhibition celebrating the ground breaking of a new
building by Frank Gehry is a movable feast"
by Amy Serafin
14 July 2014
Frank Gehry's architecture often looks like it's in motion, but for an exhibition currently showing in Arles, it is actually moving. The 'Solaris Chronicles' exhibition, produced by the Luma Foundation, ties in with the beginning of construction on a new arts centre, designed by Gehry to form the centerpiece of the foundation's 20-acre campus...
Wallworks is the first major solo exhibition in Australia by Los Angele-based, New Zealand-born artist Fiona Connor. Quoting existing architectural languages in her installations and sculptures, Connor Considers how context and display can condition our perception of an object or artwork.
Commissioned by MUMA, the musuem wide exhibition Wallworks sees connor work with the Monash University Collection to playfully upend the conventions of museum display. Recreating the location and installation of a number of artworks that hang in offices, lecture theaters and public spaces across the university's campuses, Wallworks provides an intimate look at the life of artwork after entering an institutional collection.
Ann Veronica Janssens is exhibiting in this years MANIFESTA 10 at the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.
Led by Curator Kasper Konig, MANIFESTA 10 will expand the artistic exchange made possible by the events of 1989-91. More than 50 leading contemporary artists from Russia and around the world will participate, with a number of artists creating new works specifically for MANIFESTA 10.
Rotating over the course of three months, 6 artists and 6 writers fill a room-The Room- at the museum, with objects and words, respectively. For two weeks at a time and in turn, one artist and one writer respond to the shared prompt of the The Room's description. Each artist's presentation is a new episode in the space and each writer's text a new chapter appearing in a pamphlet. All of which culminates in a bound book ( a novel) a the exhibition's end. As a fiction about fiction, this exhibition within the exhibition is meafictional in concept and episodic in structure.
Fiona Connor will be exhibiting sculptures from here series: Signs that change buildings alongside text by Becket Flannery.
SUPERFLEX will be exhibiting their 2009 sculpture Lost Money in this years Sculpture Odense 2014: Still Waters Run Deep. Lost Money will be installed at Verstergade 64 infront of the Bank Nordea Headquarter in Odense.

Fiona Banner in collaboration with Paolo Pellegrin
and in association with The Archive of Modern Conflict
Fiona Banner's project for PEER has been in response to an invitation to collaborate with the London-based Archive of Modern Conflict. Rather than delving into the archive to draw out, spotlight or re-contextualize specific material for special scrutiny, Banner has elected to commission a new body of work by award winning Magnum photographer Paolo Pellegrin.
An evocative reversal marks eight recent paintings in luminous oil and wax by British artist Paul Winstanley. Part of a larger series of 27, their common subject is art school -- the studios and classrooms now ubiquitous in the training of artists.
All of Winstanley's paintings at 1301PE gallery show empty classrooms, entirely unpopulated by men or women -- or by any art. Instead, the art is in the depiction itself.
On Tuesday, May 20 at 7pm, the second event of MeravigiliArti 2014: la Capella Sansevero will be exhibiting an installation by Ann Veronica Janssens entitled SANSEVERO created in collaboration with Galleria Alfonso Artiaco, Naples.

Jorge Mendez Blake: Project for a Park Library (Aerial View Large)
25 April - 13 July 2014
Opening Friday, April 25 6-10pm
For this exhibition, Jorge Mendez Blake created a single work that occupies the entire gallery space. Stretching across the walls is Project for a Park Library (Aerial View Large), a vinyl print exploring how a library might be conceived as a park. The work evokes imagined landscapes of mountains, lakes, parks, and oceans. Brought together and arrange like an unfolded piece of origami paper, these elements of a library help to suggest a lush landscape. The work attempts to jettison the knowledge contained within the library so that it becomes more available and less privileged. The idea of culture acting as an agent of democracy is at the heart of this project.

Fiona Connor at ALAC 2014 Write-Up Still Life by Tracy Jeanne Rosenthal Art Los Angeles Contemporary 2014/ Artsy
Fiona Connor's realist sculptures make the word "artifice" rub against its history: the cunning so close to the craft. For Signs that change buildings, an off-site exhibition of Connor's work from Art Los Angeles Contemporary exhibitor 1301PE, Connor replicated five real estate signs with forensic specificity. Splintered wood, layers of paint, years of wear, hopeful fonts, smatterings of dirt, all meticulously fabricated. Remember: a real thing is still a thing made.

Rirkrit Tiravanija: The Accidental Warehouse The Accidental Warehouse by Kong Rithdee Lifestyle: Arts 5 Feb 2014 Bangkok Post
Rirkrit Tiravanija has curated an exhibition that stretches the imagination to celebrate 100 Tonson Gallery's anniversary. To experience a show bearing Rirkrit Tiravanija's name is to witness and succumb, to feel the urge to giggle and to raise eyebrows in wonder. No more cooking this time, or at least not in the main gallery; but they playfulness, the appearance of spontaneity, and the plain what-is-that incredulity that accompany his works of the past three decades are healthily, unexpectedly there.
