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.

The exhibition presents a comprehensive overview of 'Self-Portrait', Jun Ahn's most prominent series.

Galerie Römerapotheke

Rämistrasse 18
8001 Zurich
Exhibition
Online since 1 October 2014

In bunten Farben springen einem die Slogans von Irène Hug entgegen und ziehen uns in ihren Bann. Nicht zufällig, sondern bewusst gewählt sind die ausgeklügelten Farbkombinationen der gelernten Grafikerin. Auch wenn sie nie in diesem Metier gearbeitet hat, sondern in ihrem Werdegang gleich mit einem Studium in Malerei fort fuhr, ist ihr geschulter Sinn für Farben, Formen und Sprache in ihren Werken sichtbar.

Montez Magno

Christinger De Mayo

Ankerstrasse 24
8004 Zurich
Exhibition
Online since 30 September 2014

A rowdy inhabitant of the "great world of invention", Montez Magno has continuously recreated cosmologies and cosmogonies for the universe. His freedom resides in blurring the boundaries between the logos (knowledge, science) and the gon, the territory of the imagination. In this invented (because inventive) cosmos, fields that might be seen as far-removed or contradictory run into each other boundlessly. Read more...

Freight + Volume

530 W. 24th St.
10011 New York, NY
Exhibition
Online since 29 September 2014

Ezra Johnson is always in motion. Whether he is creating hundreds - sometimes thousands - of individual painting stills in the animations for which he is so well-known, or developing a new technique of fabricating an indoor/outdoor fiberglass mattress or oversize sponge, or cutting apart and reassembling a painting with industrial adhesive, or literally (and constantly) commuting between Florida where he teaches and his studio in Brooklyn and the better part of the last decade living and working in London, the man is a bundle of kinetic energy and flux.
