Online since 2 October 2014

The solo show devoted to Peter Dietschy is a retrospective of the artist's longstanding and broad oeuvre in all its facets. His extensive art work, which lasted over five years, tests all possibilities of painting: techniques, combinations of the artistic mediums and styles are being sampled, neglected and picked up again. The result is a broad work with versatile form and colour gestures. Read more...

Irène Hug

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...

Die Gruppenausstellung führt Künstlerpositionen zusammen, die Aspekte des Narrativ-Performativen in aktueller Künstlerpraxis aufzeigen. Dabei wird Performance nicht wie im ursprünglichen Sinne als einmalige Aktion vor anwesendem Publikum, sondern als ein nicht abgeschlossener Prozess verstanden, der vor der Entstehung des Kunstwerks beginnt, zu dessen integralem Bestandteil, zum Werkstatus mutiert und dessen Spuren und prozessuale Beziehungen im Kunstwerk erfahrbar werden.

Mario Mauroner Contemporary Art VIENNA

Weihburggasse 26
1010 Vienna
Exhibition
Online since 24 September 2014

In mathematics, a rotation designates a rigid body movement by keeping a point fixed. Departing from this definition, along with Ernst Machs' principles on mechanics, a series of questions could be posed to understand our relationship with the spaces that we settle, see, and hear about, or even with the ones that we could never experience: What does it mean to be fixated to a point?

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.

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...
