Το σώμα στο φυσικό κ ψυχικό χώρο / Cheapart Athens

 Ο Οκτώβρης υπήρξε ένας μήνας σημαντικός για την performance.

Στον φιλόξενο χώρο της CHEAPART οι φοιτητές και απόφοιτοι των Α΄, Γ’ και Ε’ εργαστηρίων της ΑΣΚΤ υπό την επιμέλεια και καθοδήγηση της εικαστικού/χορογράφου Αιμιλίας Μπουρίτη συμμετείχαν στο σεμινάριο performance ‘Το Σώμα στον Φυσικό και Ψυχικό Χώρο’ και στη συνέχεια παρουσίασαν τις δικές τους εικαστικές δράσεις/performances και την εικαστική έκθεση των τριών εργαστηρίων που τρέχει μέχρι και τις 30 Οκτωβρίου.

Ζητάσαμε από την ‘ψυχή’ του όλου εγχειρήματος Αιμιλία Μπουρίτη, να κάνει για το Ex_posure μία συνοπτική παρουσίαση των όσων έγιναν αλλά και κυρίως να μοιραστεί μαζί μας σκέψεις και συναισθήματα για όσα εκείνη και οι συμμετέχοντες βίωσαν:

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.

Μαρία Λοϊζίδου, “Μεταβίβαση | A Transfer”

Αρχαιολογικός χώρος Κεραμεικού

Στον έντονα φορτισμένο αρχαιολογικό χώρο του Κεραμεικού επιχειρείται με ιδιαίτερο σεβασμό στο παρελθόν και το παρόν του χώρου μία εικαστική “Μεταβίβαση”.

Η έκθεση “Μεταβίβαση | A Transfer”, της Μαρίας Λοϊζίδου έχει ως αφετηρία την εικαστική και διανοητική προσέγγιση της ιστορίας και των μνημείων του συγκεκριμένου αρχαιολογικού χώρου. Ο Κεραμεικός, το σημαντικότερο νεκροταφείο της αρχαίας Αθήνας, προσφέρει στον σημερινό επισκέπτη έναν από τους ωραιότερους αρχαιολογικούς περιπάτους λόγω της συνύπαρξης -μεταξύ άλλων- εξαιρετικών δειγμάτων επιτύμβιας γλυπτικής, καθώς και γνωστών ταφικών μνημείων.

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.
