17 April 2016 @ Verberke Foundation, Westakker 9091 – Kemzeke, Belgium

I turned a Detroit house into a work of art for the community to be proud of, and people who think it is ruin porn have missed the point. Ryan Mendoza

Adding another layer to the story, Mendoza‘s wife, Fabia Mendoza, chronicled the project in her documentary, “Coming Home,” which will be screened at the  Freep Film Festival on the 2nd of April at  2.30pm at the Detroit Film Theater. On April 17th it will be placed on permanent exhibition at the Verbeke Foundation in Belgium.

Ordinary Pictures

Until 9 October 2016

Walker Center, 1750 Hennepin Avenue – Minneapolis

Featuring works by 45 artists, Ordinary Pictures surveys a range of conceptual picture-based practices since the 1960s through the lens of the stock photograph and other forms of industrial image production. Despite its apparent throwaway status, the stock image is the primary commodity of a $1 billion global industry with far-reaching effects in the marketplace and the public sphere. Focusing on the industry’s distinctive modes of production, distribution, and presentation, Ordinary Pictures foregrounds the work of artists who have done much to probe, mimic, and critique this overlooked aspect of our visual environment. Spanning generations and movements—from early Pop work, avant-garde film, and Pictures Generation appropriation to more recent collage, rephotography, and video work—the exhibition also considers contemporary art’s own function as an ever-expanding global image economy.

Museo Soumaya, Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra 303, Granada, Miguel Hidalgo – Ciudad de México

Around the world, women and children experience the devastating effects of war, immigration, neglect, and worse. When one woman suffers, the collective femininity is damaged, robbing all women of their innate human dignity. Because all women conceal a story – one which is not always beautiful – LUISAVIAROMA joins forces with Fundación Origen and Maestro Dobel to support women living in a state of poverty and vulnerability with FILL YOUR BOTTLE WITH… 15 original artworks created by world-renowned artists and fashion designers invited by LUISAVIAROMA will be auctioned by Sotheby’s during a gala event at the prestigious Museo Soumaya. Each artwork is a unique interpretation of the iconic Maestro Dobel Diamante Bottle. All proceeds will go to Fundación Origen to support the development of one million women and children in need.

Alberto Garutti – Tutti i passi che ho fatto nella mia vita mi hanno portato qui, ora

Site specific work – Piazza S. Maria Novella – Florence

From April 25th, 2015

The work, placed in front of the Museum of the twentieth century, consists of a slab of stone the size of 100 cm to 95 cm set in the terraced roof of the Piazza Santa Maria Novella, which bears the inscription ‘All the steps I took in my life have led me here, now ‘. The work was made possible thanks to the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, and it is facing the Loggia of Leopoldine and is designed in dialogue with the commemorative plaque that was placed there in memory of the courage of the hundreds of political prisoners who were deported to concentration camps in March 1944. The installation is designed as an invitation to reflection and remembrance.
