Olivo Barbieri – Utopia/Dystopia, A Paradigm Shift

22 March – 21 August , 2017

 

Following its official opening on October 5, 2016, the new MAAT kunsthalle reopens to the public on March 22, 2017, with two major exhibitions that take up the whole building: Utopia/Dystopia—A Paradigm Shift, curated by Pedro Gadanho, João Laia and Susana Ventura—and Order and Progress by Mexican artist Héctor Zamora, curated by Inês Grosso.
Utopia/Dystopia—A Paradigm Shift is the first “manifesto exhibition” to be held in the kunsthalle designed by Amanda Levete (AL_A). Installed in three of MAAT’s galleries, this key-inaugural project will be a large group show featuring more than 60 works by a range of international artists and architects, some appearing for the first time in Portugal. The show will reveal how the two fields have represented ideas of utopia, or anticipated emerging notions of dystopia, since the early 1970s, with a strong focus on work produced over the last five years. Participants include architects such as Archigram, Archizoom, åyr, Didier Faustino, Yona Friedman, Aldo Rossi, Superstudio, and artists such as Kader Attia, Olivo Barbieri, Jordi Colomer, Tacita Dean, DIS Collective, Cao Fei, Ângela Ferreira, Cyprien Gailard, Jonas Staal, Ryan Trecartin, and Wolfgang Tillmans.

Eva Marisaldi – Art club

Accademia di Francia a Roma – Villa Medici , Viale Trinità dei Monti, 1, 00187 Roma – IT

Eva Marisaldi (Bologna, 1966), After a long absence, returns to exhibit in Rome for a solo show. Her work conceived for Villa Medici develops in a tank and through a variety of linguistic systems transforms the space into a structured environment where the sound becomes a graphic solution (video Cornucopia, 2005) plastic (la scatola meccanica Senza titolo, 2017) or purely acoustic (Analfabeta, 2000) introducing the viewer in a multisensory experience, suspended in time and space.

Roger BAllen foundation centre for photograpy be housed at Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art

Ahead of its Grand Opening during South Africa Heritage Weekend in September 2017, the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) has announced that it is the recipient of a major gift from the Roger Ballen Foundation to the museum’s endowment to establish and support a Centre for Photography.

The gift is the largest financial donation received by the museum, to date, from a Foundation. The investment of the donation will contribute to the long-term sustainability of the museum now, and for generations to come, and will also ensure a committed focus on photography as part of Zeitz MOCAA’s mission.

The Roger Ballen Foundation donation will support the ongoing logistical, exhibition, programming and educational costs of a Centre for Photography. It will include a substantial donation of works to the museum’s permanent collection.

“It has been my great desire to contribute to the understanding of photography in South Africa in the country that I call home,” said Roger Ballen. “By donating my archive and finance to Zeitz MOCAA, I wish to commit to the ongoing success of this important museum in Africa and ensure that photography is guaranteed a place in the museum’s activities.”

Jonathan Monk – The Sound Of Laughter Isn’t Necessarily Funny

27 January – 11 March 2017

The Gallery, Vijay Patel Building, De Montfort University, Mill Lane, Leicester, LE2 7PT – UK

In this exhibition, three sculptures inhabit the space – a grand piano, a pair of grandfather clocks and a dismembered doll that has passed through the artist’s family. Each of these is mechanically animated and their actions mark the passing of time in seemingly arbitrary ways. All the objects have a gothic resonance to them. Their animation suggests human presence, as the piano plays itself and the dolls eyes flicker open.
This is Jonathan Monk’s first exhibition in Leicester, the city in which he was brought up.
