10001 New York, NY
Exhibition
Online since 17 November 2014

James Cohan Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition entitled "By Proxy". Marcel Duchamp called it "aesthetic osmosis," the process by which an artist transfers responsibility to a viewer, empowering them to complete the work out in the world. This exhibition is concerned with those tools and techniques, the effects they can have, and the instances when an idea calls for more than just the artist to take form. Read more...

The Remarkable Lightness of Being

aeroplastics contemporary

32 rue Blanche
1060 Brussels
Exhibition
Online since 11 November 2014

Unbearable for some, the lightness of being might rather be said to be remarkable at Aeroplastics, which for years has with quirky humour cultivated a taste for the strange. "The Remarkable Lightness of Being" proposes, through a selection of 36 artists from Belgium and abroad, a look at current practices inherited from surrealism in its broadest sense - not the dogmatic current theorized by Breton, but rather that of Magritte and his followers, in Belgium or elsewhere - without forgetting the distant but strong reminiscences of Dada.
