As part of its ongoing Public Program, the Stedelijk Museum proudly presents the Metamodernism: The Return of History. Structured as a discursive marathon (from 11am until 11pm), the museum invites such internationally renowned speakers as Francis Fukuyama, Michel Bauwens, Hassnae Bouazza, Birgitta Jónsdóttir, Nina Power, Cally Spooner, Adam Thirlwell and Camille de Toledo to reflect on the discourse of a generation born in the 1980s: from the historical fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001, moments of global (financial and/or political) crisis in 2008 and 2011, to the present moment we collectively call contemporary.   More than 20 years after his essay "The End of History," Francis Fukuyama wrote another article on the subject of History, tellingly titled "The Future of History." Here he argues that the victory of liberal democracy was a tenuous one.

Diana Al-Hadid's sculptures, drawings, and panels merge figuration and abstraction and employ a range of materials, from steel and fiberglass, to gold leaf and pigment. Al-Hadid's work often references history, whether through its architecture or references of Old Master painting.  Her latest body of work, The Fates, exhibited at Secession, further develops these visual interests, and consists of three large sculptures and two inset panels. Drawing inspiration for these works from European Renaissance and Mannerist paintings, Al-Hadid's three-dimensional interpretations incorporate the landscapes, poses, and compositions of earlier masterpieces.

Disciplines such as ethnography and urban anthropology have been defining the practice of some artists currently working in the cultural centers of the American continent; their issues regard the confronted positions within the socio-political praxis that ultimately define our societies. The Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros (SAPS) continues its exhibitions program presenting the work of Beatriz Santiago Muñoz (b. 1972, San Juan, Puerto Rico), and Moris (b. 1978, Mexico City), artists coming about two forceful cultural centers of the so-called Latin-American context.

The Parc Saint Léger Contemporary Art Center is located in a former spa complex two hours from Paris. The center’s activities revolve around several fundamental aims, from providing support to artists, hosting residencies, and producing works of art, to organizing exhibitions, publishing, and offering a framework for artistic research. What sets Parc Saint Léger apart, however, is its artist residencies and its extramural program of events and activities covering the whole of the département of Nièvre. Standing in a forested park, the Parc Saint Léger complex occupies a beautiful 19th-century building that was refurbished in 1998 and now houses the center’s exhibition space and offices, and living quarters for resident artists.

The Power Station of Art (PSA) is proud to present the major solo exhibition Cai Guo-­Qiang: The Ninth Wave  by the New York-based Chinese-born artist. From August 8 to October 26, the exhibition explores pressing environmental and ecological issues, and the imminent challenge they pose to the survival of mankind—as evidenced by the high levels of smog in the air and the incident of 16,000 dead pigs floating down the Huangpu River last year. The artist also references recurring themes in traditional Chinese aesthetics and philosophy: humanity's longing for a return to a primordial landscape and a spiritual homeland. PSA's building, the former Nanshi Power Station, serves as a powerful backdrop for 12 major works in a diverse range of media, some of them taking place in the public realm leading up to the opening, allowing the public to witness various stages of the creative process.

Pablo Bronstein: Magnificent Obsession Charlie Fox visits the seaside home of Pablo Bronstein and discovers how, by drawing on a range of peculiar passions, the British-Argentinian artist creates an oeuvre of singular, knowing pleasure. 'Perusing the catalogues of Bronstein's work is like wandering punch-drunk through the dreams of an eccentric 18th-century aristocrat.'

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art has just opened its doors for the first solo exhibition of the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. Eliasson's exhibition at Louisiana is site-specific, engaging with the museum's unique identity. The exhibition consists of three spatial sections that each thematize the encounter between Eliasson's art and Louisiana as a place, physically, architecturally and institutionally. The central work in the exhibition, Riverbed (2014), which is made specifically for the museum, is based on the unique connection between nature, architecture and art that characterizes Louisiana.

Cycle   New window
Date: Thursday, 21 Aug 2014 18:02
A single provocative question provides the common thread connecting works in the Cycle exhibition which, starting August 23, will occupy the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil in São Paulo in two stages, exhibiting anthological works by 14 artists of different generations and nationalities: the urgency and relevance of producing art from elements present in the world, attributing new meaning to materials, subverting meanings and reinventing ways of seeing and feeling things. A highlight of the 32nd Biennial's parallel circuit, the exhibition aims to establish a sort of bridge between a founding moment of contemporary art—the creation of the first ready-mades exactly a century ago by Marcel Duchamp—and the fertile reinvention of this type of operation today.

YDRAH 8K, presented by the Künstlerhaus KM– , is an exhibition of new works by the artist K8 Hardy (b. 1977 in Fort Worth, Texas; lives in New York). Her works of art garner performative energy from various fields and studies, frequently from the area of fashion, for example, and generally from current forms of representation and modi of self-presentation in digital-based social networks. In the process, she avoids committing herself to a single artistic medium, eludes artisanal virtuosity in photography, sculpture, and video, and produces as if drawing on a gigantic maelstrom of self-documentation and fashionable, queer-visionary transformation of identity.

Art Sonje Center presents Sung Hwan Kim's solo exhibition from August 30 to November 30. This exhibition introduces Kim's art as a systematic integration of video, drawing, installation, architecture, and performance into a single exhibition space. The title of the exhibition, Life of Always a Mirror, is a play on words in Korean on a Korean elementary school textbook's title, Joyful Life. This method of education merges music, art, and physical education into a single subject as a didactic gesture in public education that teaches the youth not only knowledge but also the way they should lead a joyful life.
