NOW ON VIEW | Women.Now. at ACFNY | Until February 18

2018_09_25_Women.Now.114.jpg

The Austrian Cultural Forum New York (ACFNY) is pleased to present Women.Now., a group exhibition showcasing contemporary female artists based in Austria and the United States, curated by Sabine Fellner. This transmedial show unites artists from different generations, commenting on women’s role in society and the arts.
 
The exhibition pays homage to two major anniversaries. 2018 marks the hundredth anniversary of women’s suffrage in Austria. This movement allowed women to formally participate in political practices. Second, it remembers 1968, a year in which social norms defined by patriarchal structures were put under radical scrutiny as the feminist avant-garde was formed. In Women.Now., curator Sabine Fellner sheds light on the legacies of these monumental time periods and how they impact current artistic discourse . The contemporary art scene is still struggles with gender disparities, whether that be in the art market, museums, or exhibition venues.

Now On View | FOCUS Kazakhstan Berlin: Bread & Roses | MOMENTUM

The Focus Kazakhstan Berlin exhibition Bread and Roses examines the work of four generations of Kazakh woman artists created since 1945. The exhibition, and its related artist residency program, with nearly 30 artists offers a fresh perspective on both modern and contemporary Kazakh art and culture. It proposes a broader model for considering art made by women in other post-Soviet and post-colonial contexts. The history of the Soviet Kazakh SSR with the rapid development of the Republic of Kazakhstan since its foundation in 1991, have created a melting-pot of ideas and influences between east and west that are expressed dynamically in its contemporary art production.
 
Bread and Roses presents work by Anar Aubakir, Lidya Blinova, Bakhyt Bubikanova, Gania Chagatayeva, Vera Ermolaeva, Zoya Falkova, Aisha Galimbaeva, Tatiana Glebova, Gulfairus Ismailova, Kreolex Zentr (Maria Vilkovisky & Ruth Jenrbekova), Gaisha Madanova, Aigerim Mazhitkan, Almagul Menlibayeva, Gulnur Mirzagalikova, Gulnur Mukazhanova, Katya Nikonorova, Saule Suleimenova, Gulmaral Tatibayeva and Lena Vorobyeva.

CHART closed on Sunday, 2 September with outstanding art and design presentations, 28,523 number of visitors, including a robust turnout of local and international collectors. Exhibitors and participating artists noted important presence of collectors, journalists and curators, which led to significant sales and institutional acquisitions. This reflected on the increased number of collectors and institutions, not only from the Nordic region, but also from other territories including Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, The Netherlands, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and The United States.

Now in its sixth edition, 44 exhibiting galleries from the Nordic countries were invited to participate in the 2018 edition. The art fair section of CHART, featured outstanding 20th- and 21st-century artworks in a range of media presented by 32 leading Nordic galleries. The 2018 edition launched special presentations produced for the 2018 edition of the fair, and has an increased focus on solo and dual presentations. Notable presentations included: Galleria Heino, a new exhibitor, showed new works by Finland´s acclaimed photographer and video artist, Elina Brotherus; Galleri Magnus Karlsson presented new works on paper by Peter Köhler, made specifically for this year's edition; and Andersson/Sandström exhibiting large-scale works by Turner Prize-winning British sculptor, Tony Cragg.

"The visitor numbers for CHART has been rising year on year, but this is the first time we experience such an explosive increase in the number of guests. We have had guests from 22 different countries, visitors from 97 national and international cultural institutions and we see a very wide age range among our guests. I’m of course immensely proud and it is great to see, that we have succeeded in our ambition to be a meeting place for both the dedicated art professionals and a broader cultural audience." - Director, Nanna Hjortenberg

The Focus Kazakhstan Berlin exhibition Bread and Rosesexamines the work of four generations of Kazakh woman artists created since 1945. The exhibition, and its related artist residency program, with nearly 30 artists offers a fresh perspective on both modern and contemporary Kazakh art and culture. It proposes a broader model for considering art made by women in other post-Soviet and post-colonial contexts. The history of the Soviet Kazakh SSR with the rapid development of the Republic of Kazakhstan since its foundation in 1991, have created a melting-pot of ideas and influences between east and west that are expressed dynamically in its contemporary art production.
 
Bread and Roses will present work by Anar Aubakir, Lidya Blinova, Bakhyt Bubikanova, Gania Chagatayeva, Vera Ermolaeva, Zoya Falkova, Aisha Galimbaeva, Tatiana Glebova, Gulfairus Ismailova, Kreolex Zentr (Maria Vilkovisky & Ruth Jenrbekova), Gaisha Madanova, Aigerim Mazhitkan, Almagul Menlibayeva, Gulnur Mirzagalikova, Gulnur Mukazhanova, Katya Nikonorova, Saule Suleimenova, Gulmaral Tatibayeva and Lena Vorobyeva. 
 
Emerging Kazakh women artists are prefaced in the show by a group of eminent forerunners who have remained more or less invisible within the history of Soviet, Kazakh and world art. Against the tumult of Stalinist repression and its aftermath, the work of these women has forged a bridge between traditional Kazakh arts, crafts and ways of living, the Soviet avant-garde of the 1920s and 30s, socialist realism and a completely new approach to art making that emerged from the beginning of the 1980s. The works that these ‘great grandmothers,’ ‘grandmothers,’ ‘mothers,’ and daughters of contemporary Kazakh art have produced reflect disparate backgrounds, struggles and life experiences.

British Painter Phoebe Dickinson Unveils New Landscape Paintings | London Fall 2018

The upcoming exhibition will feature landscape works painted during her global exploration of rural and urban scenery.

November 12 – December 14, 2018
Tessa Packard Showroom: 15A Ives Street, London, SW3 2ND

Phoebe Dickinson 18.jpg

British painter Phoebe Dickinson will unveil her new urban and pastoral works painted during her year of global travel. “Journey Through Landscape” will be on view at Tessa Packard Showroom in Chelsea, London from November 12 – December 14, 2018. This new body of work marks a shift in the artist’s oeuvre, as Dickinson is well known for her portraiture in the style of late 19th-century American masters, such as John Singer Sargent.
 
The show will present over 100 figurative plein air paintings ranging from earthly paradises to pastoral atmospheres.  The artist began painting in plein air as a means of escaping the four walls of her studio, painting in a range of sizes and capturing the vibrant glow of her many surroundings. The show is presented in a salon style hang, beyond the archetypal white cube that has become so principal in the contemporary scene.
 
The paintings depict cold Icelandic winter sceneries with a vantage point at the northern lights, the peaceful almost dreamy atmospheres in Malibu, California, to impressive medieval Florence. Although her paintings are classically informed, the oil paint and brief strokes give her paintings a nearly abstract impression. 
 
Throughout her artistic career, Dickinson has painted nudes, landscapes, and still-life’s, however, she is specifically captivated by portraiture, working in the tradition of William Nicholson. In 2018, Dickinson was accepted into the BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery with her painting of the Cholmondeley children at Houghton Hall. The BP Portrait Award is one of the most prestigious portrait painting competitions in the world and represents the best in contemporary portrait painting. The Cholmondeley family has also commissioned the artist to paint the mother, Rose Cholmondeley, formerly Rose Hanbury. The portrait will be completed in September 2018.

The CHART Architecture competition, a key element of CHART SOCIAL, was launched in 2014 with the intention of promoting young Nordic architects and exploring the crossover between art, design and architecture. In 2018, CHART extended the call for applications to young and newly established architectural professionals, as well as students and recent graduates from the Nordic architecture schools. Five finalists were selected by this years judges and were chosen to design pavilions to house gastronomy partners and SPACE10 during CHART ART FAIR. The winner will be announced on September 1, 2018.

The 2018 concept is OPEN-SOURCE and challenges participants to unfold the potential of open-source content through modular design and cross collaborations, creating a platform for aesthetic experimentation and reusable design. In this collaboration CHART wants to underline the significant relationship existing between art and architecture, suggesting participants to design pavilions closely with artists as an integrated part of their team. Collaborations can be presented as initial ideas and then integrated in the further development of the pavilion.

This year the CHART Architecture competition is judged by Bjarke Ingels, architect and founder of BIG Bjarke Ingels Group; Beatrice Galilee, Curator of Architecture and Design at The Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art; Ben Clement and Sebastian De La Cour (benandsebastian), Artist-duo; Simon Frommenwiler, architect and co-founder of HHF Architects; Susanne Ottesen, Owner of Galleri Susanne Ottesen and Co-Founder of CHART; Thomas Lommeé, Founder and Partner of OpenStructure and Infrastructure.

The winners of this year’s competition will be offered a mentorship program with the aim to stimulate and support young architects’ careers. This competition will promote networking as well as promoting cross-sector collaboration amongst professionals.

CHART Architecture is made possible by the generous support of Realdania, a social enterprise, whose mission is to improve the quality of life through the built environment; The City of Copenhagen, The Danish Arts Foundation, FOSS and The Dreyer Foundation.
