The weavings of Diedrick Brackens—who participated in the Hammer’s Made in L.A. 2018 biennial and received the Joyce Alexander Wein prize from the Studio Museum in Harlem—can be seen in the New Museum’s lobby exhibition space throughout the summer.
In conjunction with the GUILLERMO KUITCA exhibition at Hauser & Wirth in L.A.’s Arts District, Tim Robbins‘ troupe The Actors’ Gang will perform a staged reading of Jean-Paul Sartre’s NOEXIT, directed by Brian Finney.
Participating Actors’ Gang members include Pierre Adeli, Hannah Chodos, Cihan Sahin, and Paulette Zubata.
The SimoneForti exhibition at KunsthalleBaselland will include performances of her works HUDDLE, SLANT BOARD, and PLATFORMS.
The performances are coordinated by Sarah Swenson, and will be performed by PeterBurleigh, Nilo Dawn, Paula Alonso Gómez, Alina Immoos, Sophie Jung, Emi Miyoshi, Timo Paris, Toschkin Schalnich, and Steven Schoch.
The exhibition of RubyNeri’s new large-scale sculptures at David Kordansky will be up for one more week.
“The aura of confidence that animates the sculptures is due in no small part to the physical solidity of clay and Neri’s handling of it. Fusing elements that can be read as handles, for instance, with the limbs of the figures or their ropes of yellow hair, she builds hybridized objects that literalize the implied corporeality of the vessel, thereby emphasizing its centrality in the development of human culture…
“The scale of these works gives them architectural presence as well, generating comparisons to geological formations and trees (some include images of exaggerated flowers), or archaic totems constructed by a matriarchal society. In some cases, bulbous protrusions on their sides contain apertures that permit visual access to their interiors.”*
Parkett presents PHOTO, “the first survey exhibition of all photographic works made by artists for the journal over the last three decades. On view at Parkett’s Zurich space, the show includes some ninety works spanning a rarely seen, vast, and diverse range of photographic positions and ideas.”*
“The exhibition follows the evolution of photographic methods in the past three decades, with many of the earlier photographs making use of analog techniques, while digital editing informs the more recent works. Common threads including people and portraiture, landscapes both urban and natural, everyday objects, and abstraction, connect an otherwise expansive range of visual topics.”*
“Many of the works on view combine photographic elements with other media, such as gouache, collage, textiles, installation, or printmaking. Also on view are works, which while similar in terms of media and format, are unique and contain distinct differences within each project. Further exhibition displays include five video works, as well as a selection of artists’ inserts—the specially commissioned 10–12 book page projects published in each issue of Parkett.”*
“You can grab an issue from thirty years ago and see the context. You can grab that context and time. The internet has no historical orientation. You click on an article and you don’t know what context [it was published in]. I think this loss of memory is deplorable.” — JacquelineBurckhardt, Parkett co-founding editor**
