Dan Flavin, Robert Janitz, Ralph Eugene Meatyard - ghost outfit (organized by Todd von Ammon)

Team (gallery, inc.)

83 Grand Street
10013 New York, NY
Exhibition
Online since 13 October 2014

"ghost outfit" weds three artists who, despite generational gaps and disparate media, share a concern with material and conceptual duplicity. The pieces in the show use light and light-sensitive material to provide moments of both literal and figurative masking, in which an object's surface acts simultaneously as barrier and point of access.

Albrecht Schnider / Giacomo Santiago Rogado

Helmhaus Zurich

Limmatquai 31
8001 Zurich
Exhibition
Online since 17 September 2014

The two Swiss artists Albrecht Schnider and Giacomo Santiago Rogado push the boundaries of painting to the limits. Both were born in Lucerne, and both have made Berlin their home. They apply their craftsmanship and insatiable curiosity to exploring the possibilities of painting in our time. The result is a form of "painting about painting" that thrives on the principle paradigms of art and nature. And: an exhibition of almost unbearable beauty. Read more...

Merlin Carpenter - Decades

Simon Lee Gallery

304, 3/F Pedder Building
12 Pedder Street
Central Hong Kong
Exhibition
Online since 7 October 2014

For a first-time viewer a possible problem is not the realization that there are many layers, but not knowing how to use them. Someone with a vague knowledge of his work, based on gossip and internet material, would likely be puzzled and rather discouraged by a Merlin Carpenter exhibition when faced with all too obvious references that leap out but that seem to conceal others.

Gabriele & die Dinge.
Spielen mit der zerbrechlichen Schönheit des Moments.
Ein Essay von Ursula Pia Jauch.
Als wir noch Kinder waren, da hatten auch die Dinge um uns herum Gesichter, Gefühle, eine Seele. Später sind wir erwachsen geworden, ernst und seriös. Und die Dinge wurden zu kalten Objekten, zu Material ohne Gesicht; seelenloses Zeugs, mit dem man hantieren kann und das sich unserem Willen beugt. Read more...
