Hayward Gallery Project Space presents 'What's Love Got to Do With It'

Hayward Gallery Project Space presents 'What's Love Got to Do With It' | Gender and art | Scoop.it

LONDON.- To coincide with the Southbank Centre’s Festival of Love (28 June - 31 August 2014), Hayward Gallery Project Space presents a group exhibition that explores the verbal and visual languages of love and the many ways that such ‘gestures’ are mediated through social and cultural codes. This exhibition premieres a specially commissioned programme of site specific performances as well as new sculptural works.

The participating artists Anna Barham, William Cobbing, Sharon Hayes, Joanna Piotrowska and Ilona Sagar share an interest in exploring the particular emotional and physical choreography of intimacy and the paradoxical power-shifts that accompany longing and desire.

Cataclysmically Feminist: The Second Wave in California

Cataclysmically Feminist: The Second Wave in California | Gender and art | Scoop.it

Groundbreaking programs and institutions supported Feminism's Second Wave in the 1970s against a calculated system of prejudice and its patriarchal mythologies.

 

Key among the sites: the nation's first Feminist Art Programs at Fresno State College (now CSU, Fresno) and California Institute of the Arts; the Woman's Design Program at CalArts, the "Womanhouse" installation in Hollywood; and the Woman's Building -- initially located near Macarthur Park, later east of Chinatown -- which supported woman's collaboration, education, exhibition, and performance in L.A. for eighteen years.

A Love Letter To Louise Bourgeois, A Feminist Icon Whether She Likes It Or Not

A Love Letter To Louise Bourgeois, A Feminist Icon Whether She Likes It Or Not | Gender and art | Scoop.it

Louise Bourgeois, Untitled, 2002.

 

Louise Bourgeois is a feminist art icon, even if she -- in some mythical afterlife populated by giant spiders and contorted, alien figures -- would hate the label. When she was alive, she was aloof on the subject. "Some of my works are, or try to be feminist, and others are not feminist," she proclaimed in an interview with the San Francisco Museum of Art.

 

"I am lucky to have been brought up by a mother who was a feminist and fortunate enough to have married a husband who was a feminist, and I have raised sons who are feminists," Germaine Greer quoted her as saying in The Guardian, not long after Bourgeois' death in 2010. The artist, famous for her mammoth sculptures of spiders, pointedly leaves herself out of the list, insinuating not a rejection of the -ism, necessarily, but perhaps a bit of condescension toward critics eager to associate her with the term, no matter her opinions.

 

"Louise Bourgeois L’araignée et les tapisseries" is currently on view at Hauser & Wirth Zürich until July 26.

First exhibition to present live performances of Yvonne Rainer’s dance works opens at Raven Row

First exhibition to present live performances of Yvonne Rainer’s dance works opens at Raven Row | Gender and art | Scoop.it

LONDON.- Dancer, choreographer, filmmaker and writer Yvonne Rainer (born 1934, lives in New York) is widely acknowledged as having played a key role in revolutionising post-war dance, inspiring generations of performers. In the sixties and early seventies, initially as part of the Judson Theater in New York (alongside Simone Forti, Steve Paxton and Trisha Brown), Rainer made dance works that were concerned with social and political form. Her choreography incorporated 'ordinary' movement and ‘neutral’ performance, rethinking the performer-audience relationship.

This exhibition is the first to present live performances of Rainer’s dance works alongside other aspects of her practice: theoretical and lyrical writing, sketches and scores, photographs of performances, documentary and experimental films, and an audio recording of one of her early performative lectures. Together these convey a vivid picture of Rainer's production from 1961 to 1972, and its proximity to the visual arts of the time, notably to minimalist sculpture.

Exhibition at Alison Jacques Gallery presents selection of paintings and works on paper by Dorothea Tanning

Exhibition at Alison Jacques Gallery presents selection of paintings and works on paper by Dorothea Tanning | Gender and art | Scoop.it

"LONDON.- Working in close collaboration with The Dorothea Tanning Foundation, Alison Jacques Gallery presents its second solo exhibition of works by Dorothea Tanning. Web of Dreams brings together a selection of paintings and works on paper spanning fifty years, many of which have never been exhibited before. The exhibition begins with Tanning's 1939 work on paper Tango and ends with a work of the same title made in 1989, demonstrating the artist's lifelong study of the passionate interplay of figures.

[...]

Un Tissu de Songes (Web of Dreams) (1973-93) provides the title of the show and is a prime example of Tanning's preoccupation with revisiting forms, themes, ideas, thoughts, feelings, and states of being. Originally painted in 1973, then reworked in 1984, and again in 1993, Un Tissu de Songes (Web of Dreams) alludes to a convergence of many dream-thoughts or perhaps, more simply, to being caught in an endless dream-like state."

De juillet à septembre, le Musée de Bastia vous plonge dans les souvenirs de vacances de Leonor Fini et de ses amis à Nonza.

Le Cap Corse, été 1956 - un couvent franciscain en ruines au bord de la mer, enfoui dans la végétation et les chaos rocheux.

Leonor Fini - une artiste atypique, inclassable,magnétique, dont la peinture fleuretait avec le surréalisme, passionnée de littérature, écrivaine elle-même, créatrice de décors et de costumes de théâtre, d’opéra et de bals masqués. Des ami(e)s, artistes eux-mêmes - les peintres Stanislao Lepri, Max Ernst et sa femme Dorothea Tanning, Bob et Anik Sinè, l’acteur Leonardo Botta, les écrivains Ector Bianciotti, Costantino Jelenski, la photographe Uga Ronald - venus la retrouver dans ce lieu mystérieux, partageant ses rêves les plus fous et les jeux innocents de son imagination débridée.

How love is constructed and influenced by external elements? This is what artists Anna Barham, William Cobbing, Sharon Hayes, Johanna Piotrowska and Ilona Sagar try to present.

Mixing videos, sculptures, installations and audio works, this avant-garde group shows how love is articulated and experiences in our contemporary world.

Women artists who should be better known

Women artists who should be better known | Gender and art | Scoop.it

With women still not fairly represented in major collections, Susan Best, author of Visualizing Feeling, looks at five women that you should know about.

 

We’ve come a long way since the 1970s when standard art historical textbooks, like Gombrich’s The Story of Art and Janson’s History of Art, did not include a single woman artist. While Roszika Parker and Griselda Pollock’s Old Mistresses (1981) highlighted Art History’s latent sexism, inequalities still exist as the Guerilla Girls and the Australian artist, Elvis Richardson, continue to demonstrate. Richardson’s blog ‘CoUNTESS: women count in the art world’ provides a useful corrective to the idea that women artists are equally represented in major collections and exhibitions. In the spirit of making women count in the art world, here are five short accounts of women artists who should be better known. There are of course many (many) more.

Le Musée de Gravelines étant spécialisé dans le domaine des arts graphiques, il est apparu rapidement évident que l’intégration d’un dessin mural était un élément inévitable. Françoise Pétrovitch a déjà réalisé de nombreux dessins muraux dans différents lieux pour différents projets. L’enjeu est toujours d’adapter un sujet à un format, à l’identité d’un lieu, d’une exposition ou d’une commande. Pour l’exposition après les jeux de Gravelines, l’artiste a décidé de pousser les limites de l’exercice en proposant de réaliser un dessin mural qui deviendrait le support où seront accrochées ses gravures encadrées. Ce dessin d’une longueur de 20 mètres sur 2,10 mètres de hauteur sera constitué d’une multitude de poupées de formats et aspects différents,...

Qajar #25, 1998” gelatin silver print by Shadi Ghadirian.

 

"At the entry to “The Middle East Revealed: A Female Perspective”, the fascinating new group show at Howard Greenberg Gallery in NYC, there is a large color portrait of a modern Arab woman.  She is wearing a headscarf and a slight smile, like a cat who swallowed a canary.  Is she daring the authorities, or perhaps challenging Western preconceptions?  Her headscarf is an American flag.

 

This exhibition features four contemporary Middle Eastern photographers whose work is being shown for the first time in NY, as well as vintage photographs by the first female photojournalist, American Margaret Bourke-White, taken in Syria on assignment for LIFE magazine in 1940."

"The war is usually seen through military eyes.  However, it could not have been won without the efforts of millions of women. They proved what they could do  – what took a great deal longer was to convince everyone that they should do it."


‘Fighting on the Home Front:  The Legacy of Women in WorldWar One’  by  Kate  Adie, (Hodder &  Stoughton)

 

World War I changed women’s life forever; in terms of status, class, position and what was acceptable for a woman to wear. Fashion changed with the innovation of women being required to do men’s work. The corset disappeared and trousers became a norm.

Emmy Andriesse, Man from Arles, 1951-1952


This year we celebrate the birth a hundred years ago of Emmy Andriesse (1914-1953), an important photographer of the first half of the twentieth century; a perfect occasion for showing her photographs from the Van Gogh Museum collection.

 

Not long before she died, Andriesse made a photo series called The world of Van Gogh. She went to Provence and Auvers-sur-Oise to capture in photographs the subject matter of Van Gogh's paintings and drawings sixty years earlier. The first half of the exhibition is devoted to these splendid photographs. They radiate Van Gogh's spirit, but above all illustrate Andriesse's own style. They show how Van Gogh remains an inspiration for artists.

'Peggy Angus: Designer, Teacher, Painter' opens at Towner | Gender and art | Scoop.it

Tile mural for Brussels World Fair, 1955.


EASTBOURNE.- Designer, painter, educator, mentor and social campaigner, Peggy Angus is the focus for Towner’s major summer exhibition, exploring the prolific output and influence of one of the twentieth century’s most overlooked creative practitioners. Peggy Angus: Designer, Teacher, Painter brings together industrial and interior design work with Angus’ artistic practice, in the context of Furlongs, Angus’ Sussex home which she described as ‘the matrix of much strange and inventive creation'.

Although Angus early career was in figurative painting, she became best known for her Modernist industrial design. She was commissioned to produce extensive decorative tile murals for significant post war building initiatives including London Heathrow Airport, Underground Station and Gatwick Airport’s original buildings for which she designed a new form of marbling design for glass cladding. She designed large-scale tile murals for many other public places including East London’s Lansbury Lawrence School, and Glyndwr University in Wrexham that still exist today.

"The exhibition artevida (artlife) examines the relationships between art and life in the late 1950s, 1960s 1970s, and early 1980s taking Brazilian, and particularly Rio de Janeiro, art practices from that period as a point of departure (Lygia Pape’s, Lygia Clark’s and Hélio Oiticica’s, among others) and takes places in  four venues in Rio de Janeiro.

[...]

artevida proposes to establish connections and read certain art practices from the period through different concepts, references and frameworks beyond the well-known Eurocentric ones. The exhibition draws links and correspondences between multiple artworks and documents, challenging canonical histories and focusing on artists from the Global South, as well as on female artists."
