The Centre for Contemporary Art, Lagos presents 1 Work, a new project that invites an artist to present a single work as a way of highlighting a specific medium, engaging a particular idea or creating an ambitious new work which may not be possible through other platforms or to simply use the space as a laboratory or studio that encourages a direct engagement with a diverse audience. The first 1 Work project is presented by Odun Orimolade, for whom drawing is a principal component of her artistic practice, as well as being central to her research interests. Using the gallery wall as her support, Orimolade’s intervention lies at the heart of the process of mark making and form generation.

Lit from below, these paper models become enlarged, growing into dangerous giants and strange, towering figures several stories high.

Since 2012, the Institute for Human Activities (IHA) has worked on what it called ‘A Gentrifcation Program’ on a former Unilever plantation near Boteka in the DRC, 800 kilometers from Kinshasa on a small tributary of the Congo River. In the summer of 2013, Canadian palm oil operator Feronia blocked public roads, reneged on contracts and destroyed IHA‘s settlement. It also confiscated artworks in which children of plantation workers expressed their vision of the future, made in workshops led by Israeli therapist Rony Berger.

Simon Denny’s new body of work for Portikus ranks among the most ambitious the artist has developed to date. Over the period of one year, the artist researched and developed an intricate project that has grown to considerable dimensions—both physically and in terms of its critical content. For two months, the monumental gallery space is turned into an homage to technology, communication, and the relentless need for innovation. Simon Denny has produced an embracing and multi-faceted installation that functions as a documentary of the South Korean technology giant Samsung and its global success story.

With his first exhibition in 1955 and his first Happening dating back to 1960, Jean-Jacques Lebel went on to establish his reputation as an international artist by contributing to a far-reaching dynamization of the most vital and refreshing counter-movement of our time—the artistic "Action." With his Festival de La libre Expression (from 1964 to 1968), and his Festival International Polyphonix (from 1979 on), in which thousands of artists, poets, philosophers, film-makers and musicians from all artistic directions participated, Lebel was an initiator of numerous artistic and political events.

In its seventh edition, Bay Area Now is experimenting with a new approach to curating that highlights collaborations with our region's artists and arts organizations, and pushes beyond presentation toward a multidisciplinary season-long festival of diverse artistic practices in the Bay Area. BAN7's core idea is to decentralize the curatorial process by inviting regional arts organizations to program projects at YBCA, and to centralize the public presentation of some of the most exciting artistic voices in the region today through a strong, shared platform that makes visible the rich complexity of our many arts communities.

There are countless texts, books, and exhibition catalogues about Richard Prince (b. 1949) as well as texts he has authored for his own publications and those of other artists. Gaining any overview of his exhibition activities is a challenge. Nevertheless, though his work has been widely shown, Richard Prince remains an enigmatic artist. Even though his artistic approaches remain opaque, his Cowboys, Nurses, and Jokes are renowned within contemporary art.

MATRIX 254 features a selection of works by artist Geta Brătescu (b. 1926), a critical figure in the history of postwar Romanian art. For over fifty years, the artist has continually reinvented her practice and subject matter, alternating among film, textiles, collage, performance, photography, sculpture, and installation. What remains consistent throughout her body of work, in the words of the exhibition's curator Apsara DiQuinzio, is "a rigorous, yet playful sense of experimentation." Due in large part to Nicolae Ceauşescu's totalitarian regime and Romania's subsequent political isolation in the latter half of the 20th century, Brătescu's work was little known to international audiences until recently.

We never stop being animals, even as we engage in artistic expression and cultural consumption—certainly two of the most gracious interests that define our range of action, and which strongly contrast with the equally determining, yet far less noble, brutal features of our species, and which have been shockingly visible in these past months in so many parts of the world.  In being animal we follow nature's rhythms of accelerating and easing up. Every year we find ourselves like a swarm of insects rushing to finish our work before the summer, to then slow down to the sultry weather and regain energies for the harvest period.

A love of order and minimalism, rationalistic obsession, and a drive toward planned structures all seem to determine the scenery chosen by artist and filmmaker Josef Dabernig for his retrospective exhibition Rock the Void. The ostentatious tidiness of this show is, however unsettled by various subtle irritations and anomalies. Systems-immanent entropy presented with a good deal of conceptual humor becomes itself the subject of the exhibition.
