• Material Art Fair 2017

    9 – 12 Feb 2017
    Expo Reforma
    México City

    La 4a edición de Material Art Fair tomará lugar de 9 a 12 de Febrero de 2017. La feria se realizará nuevamente en EXPO REFORMA, un centro de convenciones ubicado en la colonia Juárez de la Ciudad de México; un barrio céntrico cercano al corazón financiero, el Centro Histórico y las colonias Roma y Condesa.

    Material se expande a dos plantas —accesibles directamente por escalera eléctrica desde la entrada— y presentará un grupo selectivo que incluye aproximadamente 50 galerías nacionales e internacionales, espacios sin fines de lucro y proyectos independientes.

    APRDELESP, despacho de arquitectura de la Ciudad de México, ha diseñado un nuevo plano abierto para la 4a edición de Material, en lo cual los espacios expositivos rodean un patio central y los visitantes podrán moverse libremente entre los stands.

    Material es una iniciativa de Daniela Elbahara y Brett W. Schultz, codirectores de la galería Yautepec en la Ciudad de México, e Isa Natalia Castilla, fundadora de Incontemporary.

  • Divisions

    Miércoles 4 de Mayo, 2016
    7:30pm 8:30pm
    136 West 22nd Street New York, NY

    In this polarizing election year, we are faced with many Divisions. Divisions among political beliefs—Democrats versus Republicans, of course—but also Divisions and sub-Divisions within the ideological hearts of the parties: outsiders versus the establishment, grass roots versus business class, idealists versus pragmatists, and so on. Additionally, Divisions between political and gendered identities: class, race, sexuality, citizenship, and access. You can’t use the bathroom here.


    We move within spatial, geographic and gerrymandered Divisions: supra-national agreements, alignments, and competitions; red states versus blue states; urban centers versus suburbs; gentrification versus preservation. Even the building of actual physical walls of Division is being debated. I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me.


    Internal conflict. Divisions are also feeling torn between opposite decisions, to feel in disagreement or at odds with oneself. Morals and ethical beliefs are upheld, challenged, or trespassed. What happens at Skowhegan stays at Skowhegan.


    Divisions need not be purely political or so conflicted. It can also be neutral, calculable: The exactitude of finding how many times one number can be divided by another. Or how Divisions and multiplications can move from a familiar picnic scene to a survey of the entire universe before contracting inwardly to reveal an inner cellular and molecular world. Charles and Ray Eames film, “Powers of Ten”.


    Further on this molecular level, Divisions can relate to the splitting of a cell, or mitosis. One made into multiple as a parent cell divides into two or more daughter cells. The human body experiences 10 quadrillion cellular divisions within a lifetime.


    Divisions are also the taxonomic categorizations for levels of classifications: departments, branches, wings, sectors, or subsections. They can be either narrow or broad in scope. The Skowhegan Alliance is pleased to present DIVISIONS. Comprised of 17 Skowhegan alumni, which can be divided into the following years of participation: 1974, 1976, 1990, 2001, 2004, 2005, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.

    This particular screening will be further divided physically and experientially with videos screened on both levels of the Skowhegan office.

    Curada por Sandra Mann, la Dr Julia-Constance, Max Presneill y Ichiro Irie.

    Shiva Aliabadi, Kelly Barrie, Eric Decastro, Rainer Dissel, Martin Durazo, Christiane Feser, Christine de la Garenne, Kio Griffith, Florian Heinke, Steve Hough, Ichiro Irie, Franziska Kneidl, John Knuth, Sandra Kranich, Fabiola Menchelli, Sandra Mann, Anny & Sibel ztrk, Manfred Peckl, Ave Pildas, Stehn Raupach, Tobias Rehberger, Roland Reiss, Gerhard Richter, Ed Ruscha, Marcus Sendlinger, Britton Tolliver, Lena Wolek, Augusta Wood, Eric Yahnker, and Ekrem Yalindağ.

    Coordinated as a collaboration between German curators Dr. Julia-Constance Dissel and Sandra Mann, Los Angeles-based curator Ichiro Irie and Max Presneill, this exhibition explores similarities of practices that occur within globally expansive yet hyper-connected art production. Taking as its starting point similar thematics and/or formal artistic investigations (technique, material, methodologies, etc.) Doppelgnger reflects on similarity as a tool to investigate both the hyper-connectivity that exchanges issues, trends and impulses on global scale as well as the simultaneity of expression that it engenders. In this way, the curators engage the capacity of art’s function as a seismograph for sociological development.

    The concept of the Doppelgnger emerges from German romantic literature at the end of the eighteenth century and refers to an entity that possesses the likeness of another perfect look-alike. Like Robert Louis Stevenson’s Doctor Hyde, the Doppelgnger is a superficial similarity that, while looking and/or sounding similar, is possessed of a different spirit and engagement. The curators have collected together 30 artists from Germany and North America whose juxtaposition in Doppelgnger aesthetically or thematically explores the increased growth of simultaneity in the arts as well as raising issues concerning the meaning of originality and authenticity in the arts.
