Luis Buñuel's film L'Âge d'or ranks as the seminal Surrealist film, of fundamental importance for that medium's acceptance among the fine arts. The influence the film has exerted on contemporary art―especially on more recent narrative tendencies―is inestimable. For the project The Scorpion's Sting initiated by the artist-duo M+M, the Museum Villa Stuck and the Institut Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt have invited six artist-groups or individual artists to reinterpret the Surrealist work.

In collaboration with Garage Center for Contemporary Culture in Moscow, ICI announces the Curatorial Intensive: Developing Infrastructures for Art. This short-course training program will examine curatorial strategies for creatively building frameworks for art—from small-scale collaborative projects to new museums—that respond to the changing needs of artists and new art publics.  The program will look at the challenges that arise for curators working in regions with emerging contemporary art cultures and in institutions in the early stages of development. The Curatorial Intensive will present a range of examples of progressive institutions of different scales and explore the potential for responding to the social and political contexts from which they arise.

According to Peter Greenaway, "what we do is in tune with our times, and of course, this approach is not in any way to detract from the merits of the works kept in the museum. But we do not leave them to gather dust there, we take them with us to the present and to the future." The Golden Age of the Russian Avant-Garde is a large-scale exhibition project specially created by Peter Greenaway (Britain) and Saskia Boddeke (Netherlands) for the large exhibition hall of the Moscow exhibition complex Manege.

Allan Kaprow. Other Ways, the exhibition the Fundació Antoni Tàpies is dedicating to Allan Kaprow (Atlantic City, New Jersey, 1927–Encinitas, California, 2006), recovers some of the issues that the artist worked on throughout his career, through a series of happenings and activities (the name he gave to happenings from the late 1960s, when his work became more intimate) that reclaim its contemporary relevance. In the second half of the 1940s, Kaprow was studying painting under Hans Hoffman when he discovered its performative potential. This finding led him to explore first collage and later environments (installations of objects that invite viewers to participate).

Andrea Fraser's work engages the institution of art and art institutions; Vanessa Place's work interrogates notions of criminality and poetry. Language and sound figure into both of their practices as key investigative tools. Working from the disciplines of art and writing, respectively, both employ existing tracts of text and reposition them in the context of art and performance. This exhibition, curated by MAK Center director Kimberli Meyer, presents new work by each artist in two sound installations in the Schindler House.

Demonstrating the artist's remarkable ability to transform materials and their surrounding architecture into an enveloping perceptual experience, Teresita Fernández: As Above So Below combines graphite and gold to create a series of immersive, interconnected installations whose scale shifts from intimate to vast, from miniature to panoramic. As Above So Below—opening with an artist's reception on May 24—is made up entirely of new works and is Fernández's largest solo exhibition to date.   Describing a universe in balance, the phrase "as above, so below" originates from the ancient Hermetic tradition central to alchemy, in which every action occurring on one level of reality correlates to every other.

Born in 1978 and 1980 respectively, Estefanía Peñafiel Loaiza and Benoît-Marie Moriceau are from the same generation of artists, although they are meeting for the first time at Le Crédac. It is no doubt their connections with the visible, the vestige, and memory, closely associated with the spatial and political context surrounding those links, that resonate in their work. Rather than seeking some common denominator between the two featured artists, the idea driving this series of exhibitions has been to provide a venue for a recent piece, often an on-site work, which would allow the artists to display their full measure.

M - Museum Leuven is pleased to present a new solo exhibition by Isabelle Cornaro. The installations, casts and films by Isabelle Cornaro (b. 1974, France) evince an interest in the way our perspectives are historically and culturally conditioned. Due to Cornaro's training as an art historian specialised in 16th- and 17th-century Western art, her visual language is strongly associated with forms and compositions from the past, ranging from Baroque and Classicism to Modernist abstraction.

Politics discussed in talk shows, real-time journalism charged with emotions, candy and shitstorms within social media, one click on the 'like' button to express a democratic opinion: Within the affect-driven media society a rational analysis has become rare. However, this is only one side of the current discourse about the affect society.  In countries of the Arab Spring, in Istanbul or in Brazil enraged citizens strike back at social and political misgovernment.

Sternberg Press is pleased to announce the publication of Brian O'Doherty's new novel The Crossdresser's Secret.  One of the eighteenth century's most mysterious figures was the Chevalier d'Eon, who lived as both man and woman, French spy and European celebrity. Written from the perspective of this historical figure, the novel by Brian O'Doherty—artist and author of, among others, the critical milestone Inside the White Cube and the Booker Prize-shortlisted The Deposition of Father McGreevy—reveals d'Eon's radical modernity, certified by his attitudes to gender and his examination of his own nature.

Christian Boltanski, one of the most acclaimed contemporary artists, comes to SESC Pompeia for the first-time presentation of a large-scale installation of a city: São Paulo. The artist, who represented France at the Venice Biennale in 2011 and was present in three editions of Documenta in Kassel, Germany (to name just a few examples of his participation in the international scene), conceived this project after visiting São Paulo's capital city last year, a project which reaffirms the synthesis of the investigation present in all his art: the enigma of life and death. Occupying approximately 1,400 square meters (over 15,000 square feet) in SESC Pompeia's communal space, the installation is a dense concentration of 950 towers (skyscrapers) constructed of corrugated cardboard and papered with pages from telephone directories.
