Erol Akyavaş – Retrospective – Istanbul – Turkey


Until the first of December 2013 -Istanbul Modern

a comprehensive inventory of the artist’s oeuvre that extends over half a century from the 1950s to the late 1990s. The exhibition brings together in great diversity the unique synthesis Akyavaş developed between the artistic and cultural worlds of the East and the West, his perspectival and architectural arrangements on the canvas that passed through many transformations in time, his subconscious explorations that focused on the human figure and his interaction in his late period with the various cultures of the world. This selection of around 290 works, underlines the creative and pioneering identity Akyavaş assumed between modern and contemporary art.

From September 18 to December 31, 2012 – The Metropolitan Museum of Art

For decades, critics have observed that Andy Warhol exerted an enormous impact on contemporary art, but no exhibition has yet explored the full nature or extent of that influence.

hrough approximately forty-five works by Warhol alongside one hundred works by some sixty other artists, Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years juxtaposes prime examples of Warhol’s paintings, sculpture, and films with those by other artists who in key ways reinterpret, respond, or react to his groundbreaking work. What emerges is a fascinating dialogue between works of art and artists across generations.

Ready, Set, Go! – Nitra – Slovakia

Peter Králik, Agroskate, 2011, digital print, 75 x 53 cm, courtesy of the author.

Until the 23rd of September – Nitra Gallery

The curatorial exhibition project taking place during the 30th Summer Olympics in London presents a varied selection of works related to the theme of sports, created by contemporary artists from Slovakia and abroad. Sport is a multifaceted phenomenon; therefore it is shown from different points of view – serious and humorous.

The exhibition presents a relatively large number of videos as a reaction to our passive, TV-based relationship to sports. The selection also includes almost every medium, from drawing to interactive installation.

or easier orientation and understanding of its individual layers, the exhibition is divided into several free thematic groups. The first part is dedicated to art, connected to sports in specific ways, which critically comments on various political and social problems. Another part is looking at sports as a physical activity, training and fitness, offering the visitors a possibility to exercise directly in the exhibition halls. The exhibition tackles also topics such as memory, history, recycling, subjective experience, inner worlds and construction of new contexts. Sport is, of course, a fun activity, so one of the sections is dominated by humour, irony and absurdity. And since ice hockey is perhaps the most important sporting phenomenon of Slovakia, we have dedicated a whole room to it.

The exhibition’s ambition is not to present an exhausting survey of sporting themes in contemporary art. It is rather a living mosaic which seeks to illustrate and focus on some principal artistic perspectives of these topics. And it’s not just a one-sided relationship, because after all, some sports are now and then described as art.

Exhibiting artists:
Mária Čorejová (SK), Josef Dabernig (AT), Martin Derner (SK), Ivan Dudáš (SK), Christoph Höschele & Kai Kaspar (AT), Anetta Mona Chişa & Lucia Tkáčová (SK), Andrea Kalinová (SK), Peter Kalmus (SK), Krištof Kintera (CZ), Patrik Kovačovský (SK), Peter Králik (SK), Antal Lakner (HU), Svätopluk Mikyta (SK), Petr Motyčka (CZ), Vlad Nancă (RO), Jacek Niegoda (PL), Štefan Papčo (SK), Alejandro Paz (GT), Pode B al (CZ), Tomáš Rafa (SK), Jiří Surůvka (CZ)

The Tanks: Art in Action  – A fifteen-week festival from 18 July – 28 October 2012 – Tate Modern

What already impressed everyone about the Tate Modern when it was inaugurated was its huge size. His former electric plant has been able to offer contemporary art absolutely spectacular spaces that have ensured the public’s passion as we can see in the installations presented in the hall of the Turbines over the last ten years. While waiting for the extension carried out by Herzog and de Meuron to be concluded by 2016 (which will add 21,000 square metres i.e. 60% additional space), the museum has decided to recuperate other areas: the reservoirs where the oil used to run the plant was installed. These underground rooms with vast dimensions (30 metres long, 7 metres tall) will be inaugurated on 18 July 2012, with an original theme: they will host one of the largest concentrations in Europe of living art, happenings and performances. The list of artists includes Korean Sung Hwan Kim as well as Cuban artist Tania Bruguera or Flemish Anne Teresa de Keersmaecker.

Fifty Years Of Urban Walls: A Burhan Doğançay Retrospective – Istanbul – Turkey

Doğançay - No Future, 1999 - Mixed media on masonite tiles mounted on canvas - 122 x 122 cm.Doğançay Collection of the artist

Until the 23rd of September 2012 – Istambul Modern

Since the early 1960s, Burhan Doğançay examines the social, cultural and political transformation of modern and contemporary urban culture through the use of walls. As an urban traveller, he has been tracking walls in various cities across the world for almost half a century. With the guise of an anthropologist, Doğançay examines these surfaces that are open to all manners of contemporary interventions ranging from posters to slogans, and messages with sexual content to newspaper clippings. Doğançay’s works with different techniques and styles, are positioned in both a historical and contemporary ground through their incorporation of the icons of popular culture and political symbols.

Fifty Years of Urban Walls: A Burhan Doğançay Retrospective stands as an anthology for Doğançay’s last 50 years of work. With works that range from small sized pieces to big canvases, and installations that run beyond the walls, to various materials and pursuits, this exhibition unrolls the background to Doğançay’s ways of working. The exhibition gathers together 14 distinct series and periods of time with works coming from different collections all over the world. The accompanying catalogue presents images of works along with explanatory texts, which provide different perspectives to his ouevre while documents and photographs on Doğançay’s life alludes to his urban traveller identity.

unich based publishing house Prestel will be printing and distributing the catalogue worldwide,  allowing Dogançay’s works to access a broader viewing public. The curator of the exhibition, Levent Çalıkoğlu maps out the artist’s body of work spanning over 50 years in his essay entitled, The Recording of History and the Anatomy of Walls. Brand new essays by Brandon Taylor, Professor Ermeritus of History of Art at Southampton University, and Richard Vine, Senior Editor at Art in America, as well as explanatory texts on each series by the writer, editor and graphic designer Clive Giboire all examine the techniques Dogançay has developed and integrated into his practice.
