INTO NATURE: OUT OF DARKNESS

INTO NATURE: OUT OF DARKNESS

Into Nature: out of Darkness is a biennial art route laid out in the ancient landscape of Drenthe showing works by eminent international artists. After the celebrated first edition of 2016 situated in the north of Drenthe, Into Nature returns in 2018. From 1 July to 16 September, visitors discover works by Adrián Villar Rojas, Heather & Ivan Morison, Olafur Eliasson and others set in the landscape of the southwest of the province.

This summer’s theme is ‘Into Nature: Out of Darkness’. Works of art set in various types of landscape, where humankind has been looking for its place in nature for thousands of years. The route starts on one of the darkest places in the Netherlands: the Holtingerveld. Another starting location is Frederiksoord, in the middle of the Koloniën van Weldadigheid (nominated for the UNESCO World Heritage List). The Huis van Weldadigheid, the Sterrenbos and the former Tuinbouwschool – where nature has taken root since it was closed – have been made available as exhibition spaces especially for Into Nature.

The team of curators led by Hans den Hartog Jager has succeeded in attracting an international mix of twenty renowned artists. Argentinian sculptor Adrián Villar recreated dozens of nests of the Hornero, a South-American songbird were placed in the Drenthe landscape. British artist duo Heather & Ivan Morison created an installation that can be booked as a place to stay the night for exhibition visitors. Iceland’s Olafur Eliasson made his mark in this upcoming edition with his radiant work of light art. HerInto Nature: Out of Darkness is an exciting art route that you simply cannot afford to miss. Hervé Youmbi created a dialogue between African funeral monuments, Aloalo, and a Neolithic Hunebed.

Hervé Youmbi talks to Ex_posure about this project.

Bronze Age warrior’s tomb discovered in southwestern Greece

UC team discovers rare warrior tomb filled with bronze age wealth and weapons
An international team of archaeologists led by University of Cincinnati researchers recently discovered a Bronze Age warrior’s tomb in southwestern Greece filled with more than 1,400 objects: jewels, weapons and armor, as well as bronze, silver and gold vessels.

On the floor of the grave lay the skeleton of an adult male, stretched out on his back. Weapons lay to his left, and jewelry to his right.

Near the head and chest was a bronze sword, its ivory hilt covered in gold. A gold-hilted dagger lay beneath it. Still more weapons were found by the man’s legs and feet.

OPENING THE BOX: UNPACKING MINIMALISM / The George Economou Collection

OPENING THE BOX: UNPACKING MINIMALISM

Curated by Mark Godfrey

Opening 22 October, 2015, 7-9.30pm | Curator Talk 8pm 22 October, 2015 – April 2016

Dan Flavin | Isa Genzken | Robert Gober | Roni Horn | Rashid Johnson | Donald Judd | Agnes Martin | John McCracken | Nikolai Mikhailovich Suetin

The George Economou Collection is pleased to announce Opening the Box: Unpacking Minimalism. This group exhibition curated by Mark Godfrey, opens on Thursday, October 22, 2015, at the Economou Collection Space in Athens, Greece.

When people think of Minimalism, they often think of a generic grey metal box that has been fabricated in a workshop in the United States and is displayed with other similar if not identical boxes. Although this box often features in accounts of Minimalism, it is a mythical, rather than a real artwork. This exhibition of ten works from the George Economou Collection attempts to tell a more nuanced story about Minimalism by looking at a number of different debates, places and time periods.

On the ground floor, three works surround a magnificent 1978 brushed aluminium “channel” piece by Donald Judd comprised of six open modular units, an early relief of Judd’s from 1961, a 1966 paintingbyAgnesMartinanda 1988plankbyJohnMcCracken.Thisensemblealreadyraisesseveral intriguing questions: given the compositional ideas Judd’s work shares with Agnes Martin’s, was he mistaken in so often dismissing painting? And how did John McCracken negotiate the relationship of painting and sculpture when he leaned his works between the wall and the floor? What role did colour play for Judd and McCracken, and how did they approach the difference between applied and integral colour? What differentiates these two artists’ handling of texture and reflectivity?

The Shadow of the Avant-garde, Rousseau and Forgotten Masters

The Shadow of the Avant-garde, Rousseau and Forgotten Masters / Museum Folkwang

Oct.2, 2015 – January 10, 2016

A shadow accompanies every 20th-century Avant-Garde Art Movement. Self-taught artists are what make up this shadow.*

They are painters, sculptors, and photographers with neither academic training nor access to both traditional and newly emerging channels of dissemination for their works. But their works match those by the best artists of the 20th century in artistry, aesthetic richness, immediacy, and intensity. These relative unknowns, in fact, often became an important source of inspiration for many of their famous counterparts, who gave them recognition and sometimes encouragement. The exhibition presents thirteen of these self-taught artists and a brief retrospective of their major works, which as a whole represent a kaleidoscope of widely different forms of artistic creativity.
