The “Free-floating” Srinagar Biennale explores Kashmiri artists’ fractured sense of place through memory, nostalgia, loss and national belonging. Carlson delves into how the Srinagar Biennale adopts an innovative and free-flowing format that allows the Kashmiri community to assert a new visual narrative through a ‘rhizomatic’ approach by engaging viewers in a sensorial experience rather than a visual one.

Asia Art Archive marks its 15th year by extending 15 Invitations to creative practitioners to look within and beyond the organization as an archive, a collection of material, a digital platform, and a node in a wider collective network. The “15 Invitations” will take various sizes, forms, and directions—literary, polemic, political, sonic, physical, and digital—and function as a series of “drop pins” to alternatively navigate where AAA originated and where it may be going. AAA’s e-journal “Field Notes” will trace the 15 participants as they contribute notes and entries to document the process, resulting in a final print publication.

“18 PARIS IV.70” was an exhibition organized by Michel Claura in Paris in 1970. Held at a temporary space on Rue Mouffetard that April, it was accompanied by this trilingual publication (in English, French, and German), edited by Claura and published and distributed by Seth Siegelaub. Claura invited a group of artists to each contribute a work to the exhibition. Having collected a series of artist proposals, Claura then sent this collection to each of the participants, after which they were allowed to change their initial plans. This publication includes a preface and a postface by Claura and a two-part entry ...

In Splendide Hotel – 1887 there is one sole room and it is transparent, containing apparitions of all literary, musical, scientific and abstract sorts. From an internal monologue to quantum physics to the gramophone and bioluminescence, within this little book there is a collection of nearly all the references serving to rebuild this hotel within the Cristal Palace to reveal 1887 as the birth year of our universe.

Is it possible to grasp a large-scale group exhibition based on a single artwork? This is the question posed by curator and critic Julia Moritz in her series of experimental reviews titled “Pick a Piece.” To Moritz, responding to the mushrooming of mega-exhibitions with the sturdy format of the art review means radical choice: to (en)counter the explosion of exhibitions with the implosion of inspection, with the selection of just one piece – this time from this summer’s art fairs and biennials in Basel, Palermo, and Berlin.

What does it mean to possess a deep understanding of the material world around us? When so many of us spend countless waking hours engrossed in screens, “material intelligence” feels hard to come by these days. The most recent champion of the term, craft scholar Glenn Adamson, demands nothing short of a literal call to arms to “recover our literacy in the ways of the physical world”: do things with your hands, farm, weave, build furniture, construct a house! In Adamson’s historical thinking, our practical detachment from the environment is implicated in an ongoing denigration of manual skills and trades ...

virgil b/g taylor: Minor Publics is a large-scale installation exploring the boundaries between art and memorial through research and poetic encounters with Sol LeWitt’s Black Form–Dedicated to the Missing Jews. Originally installed in Münster as part of the 1987 Skulptur Projekte, LeWitt later sold the sculpture to the city of Hamburg in 1989 and donated the fee. Black Form represents an oft-overlooked component of LeWitt’s work that extends beyond his conceptual and dematerialized methodologies to address deeply political and personal questions. The exhibition is framed by a core text by taylor that ruminates on the notion of a “bima”— a Greek and Hebrew architectural term ...

The work cannot be grasped in one glance, it escapes the gaze and looks like the result of an explosion that has left the space, walls, floor and ceiling covered in fragments and motifs. Florentine Lamarche and Alexandre Ovize’s creations are totally heterogeneous. Rarely have so many materials and gestures been used to confront oppositions of textures, forms and colours. Their works cannot be read. They are visual shocks that create irrational, madcap territories in the actual space of the exhibition. They borrow from painting and sculpture, yet foil the aesthetic codes of their representation to engage them more in ...

Against Art History critically evaluates decolonial art exhibitions and curatorial frameworks. It asks to what extent art history can be decolonial, when its disciplinary and architectural foundation, the museum, is an inherently colonial institution. Shirazi thus examines whether new curatorial frameworks, such as in Exhibitions Without Objects (EwO) which internationalise the modernist canon of non-Western arts, undo or amplify the violence perpetrated by Euro-American historical narratives.

For the past five years the paintings of Vittorio Brodmann have relied on a commitment to small-scale canvases and surrealistic animated figuration. In his first major institutional solo, Water Under the Bridge, Brodmann keeps the latter while adding monumentality to the scale of his artistic ambitions. It’s an invigorating and generous slam dunk, breaking open new and exciting avenues for his work.
