Rivane Neuenschwander in 'KABOOM: Comics in Art' at Museum Weserburg, Austria

15 June 2013
Comic strips and cartoons have been a constant source of inspiration for artists since the very beginning. But it was only with British and American Pop Art that the world of speech balloons made its grand entry into galleries and museums. Roy Lichtenstein, Öyvind Fahrström, and many other artists introduced the aesthetic of comics into their paintings. In this way, they provocatively undermined the distinction between popular culture and established art. The Weserburg is taking up this theme with a large-scale exhibition.

Rivane Neuenschwander in 'Scattered Showers - Forms of Weather' at Frankfurter Kunstverein, Germany

8 March 2013
The starting point of the exhibition 'Scattered Showers - Forms of Weather', featuring gallery artist Rivane Neuenschwander, is the surprising amount of contemporary artists whose interest in the weather draws on its complex relationship to the immediate realities of our surroundings. Concrete forms and effects of weather play a central role in their work. Phenomena such as snow, ice, rain, fog, clouds, wind/storms, lightning, and sunshine are investigated and translated into aesthetic constellations; sometimes they even become a genuine component of the works, in which the materials used are exposed to the weather or it "actually" rains or storms in the work itself.

Yinka Shonibare MBE in 'Brilliant Disguise: Masks and Other Transformations' at New Orleans Museum of Art and Contemporary Arts Centre, Louisiana, USA

7 March 2013
"Masks and disguise provide an excellent opportunity to think about how we define or ‘perform' who we are," said Miranda Lash, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at NOMA. "When a mask or disguise is worn, it signals a specific identity, communicated by appearance, cultural, spiritual, and familial history, and in some cases, layers and systems of secrecy. The objects presented in this exhibition are a combination of rarely seen treasures from the NOMA collection, and groundbreaking work by artists who take full advantage of the multivalent properties of disguise. When we cannot see an individual's everyday face or body, how does it change how we react to them? Can we have faith in the performer or the face behind the mask?"
