Curatorview [Alfredo Cramerotti]

ArtReview Talk: Will the Metaverse Break the Artworld?

Posted in nEws and rEleases by Curatorview on September 23, 2022

ArtReview partnership with the APENFT Foundation, 23 September 2022 on artreview.com

Join Cao Fei, Mimi Nguyen, Philip Tinari and Alfredo Cramerotti in this online panel discussion

In recent commentary, the Metaverse is frequently invoked in either dystopian or utopian terms. In this talk, we assemble a panel to tackle it in more meaningful, nuanced ways.

What are the Metaverse’s implications for artmaking, art production and creativity? Will it be another manifestation of the ‘second life’ that constitutes so much digital interaction today? Or will it grow to encompass all forms of life as we know it? Will it represent a break or continuation of how we make, sell, appreciate and interact with art?

This talk – featuring Cao Fei, Mimi Nguyen, Philip Tinari, Alfredo Cramerotti, and moderated by J.J Charlesworth – is the second in a series of discussions jointly developed and hosted between ArtReview and APENFT Foundation.

New exhibition season in MOSTYN: Temporary Atlas – opening 25 June 2022

Posted in nEws and rEleases by Curatorview on June 23, 2022

Temporary Atlas
Mapping the Self in the Art of Today
June 25–September 25, 2022

Adéọlá Dewis, Ode to mètèt mwe, 2022

MOSTYN is pleased to present Temporary Atlas: Mapping the Self in the Art of Today. 

Temporary Atlas is an exhibition that presents an alternative, complementary idea to mapping as conceived in a traditional sense. There are multiple ways one can use mapping or cartography to understand our place in the world, amongst them, a societally endorsed, scientifically applied cartography and an individually perceived one. Each of us assesses, prioritizes and rates things in a different way, not all aspects of life have the same value and map representations are shaped by the purpose of the map and the intentions of the map maker.

The 17 cartographer-artists of Temporary Atlas adopt a mapping approach that is based on the traditional meaning of map as a representation of reality, but which expands it, complicates it, and challenges it—developing the concept of cartography along unconventional paths—those of the subconscious, spirituality, thought, identity, feeling, and all the idiosyncrasies that are present and intermingle in each of us.

The works on display propose perceptive and physical maps that provide insight into the artists’ personal experiences, whilst evoking mental landscapes within which the viewer can situate themselves; worlds beyond objective geographical coordinates.

Temporary Atlas is a visual, aural and spatial attempt to identify a transversal, intimate and perceptive reading of the self. In turn, the exhibition suggests ways in which we can perceive our emotional, political and aesthetic horizons, make sense of our circumstances and deepen our personal experiences in relation to the society in which we now live. 

Temporary Atlas, includes works by artists Sanford Biggers, Seymour Chwast, Jeremy Deller, Sarah Entwistle, Enam Gbewonyo, Rochelle Goldberg, Oliver Laric, James Lewis, Ibrahim Mahama, Paul Maheke, Matt Mullican, Otobong Nkanga, Kiki Smith, Walid Raad and specially commissioned work from three Welsh artists Manon Awst, Adéolá Dewis and Paul Eastwood.

Temporary Atlas was on view at Gallerie delle Prigioni in Treviso, Italy, from February 5 until May 29, 2022. Curated by Dr Alfredo Cramerotti, this exhibition has been supported by the Arts Council Wales, Fondazione Imago Mundi and Fondazione Benetton Studi e Ricerche. Associate Curator: Kalliopi Tsipni-Kolaza.

Seeing Through the Affects of Violence. Part 2 @ Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen

Posted in nEws and rEleases by Curatorview on June 11, 2021

(hybrid event: on-site & streaming on Zoom and on Facebook [register via Eventbrite]

Seeing Through the Affects of Violence. Part 2

Alfredo CRAMEROTTI (curator), Natalia GUMENYUK (journalist), Mykola RIDNYI (fellow)

Mykola Ridnyi, from the “Speck in the Eye” series, 2021.

Using various media such as photography, film, installation and text, Mykola RIDNYI’s artistic practice employs historical research methods and the investigation of current political events. Ridnyi counters the sensational visualization and aestheticization of brutality with a distanced critical approach by addressing the representation of violence without its reproduction. In the post-truth era, facts have to be constantly checked, but the traditional way of presenting information needs to be questioned as well. Is there still a space for trust in both critical journalism and socially engaged art? In the second edition of a discussion series in the context of his Fellowship in Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen, the artist talks with Natalia GUMENYUK, Ukrainian journalist, author, and founder of the Public Interest Journalism Lab, and Alfredo CRAMEROTTI, author, curator, and director of MOSTYN Contemporary Art Centre in Wales about the contradictions and similarities in the visual approaches of artists and journalists.

The broadcasting of violent images has always been at the core of the news business, the media’s modus operandi. However, with the invention of 24/7 TV cable news in the 1990s, and the later appearance of social media and live-streaming, the global audience is constantly exposed to a multitude of images of violence of both domestic and international conflicts. While the commercialization of news forces journalists to edit news videos in a way that resemble action movies, the normality of human existence is cut out to keep the audience hooked by better selling visuals. In her talk, Natalia GUMENYUK will address the following questions: is it at all possible to ‘un-edit’ the world we see in order to put violence in its place? Are we ready to sacrifice the aesthetics of violent and emotional imagery to bring back a raw version of reality at the risk of being boring?

In his book Aesthetic Journalism, Alfredo CRAMEROTTI describes different strategies of the interaction of aesthetics and information, such as witnessing, interactivity, hijacking and disclosing. He claims that ’aesthetic journalism works by combining documents and imagination: the necessity of the former and the desire of the latter [sic], since desirability is almost an antidote to the often senseless accumulation of information’. In his talk, Cramerotti will explore how the artist can find ways to ’import’ journalism into art and reintroduce an artistic approach to the information industry. The talk will posit a reflection on the concept of public opinion – does it work as an aggregate, and is it open to critical understanding?

PLEASE NOTE: This is a hybrid event. Up to 17 people can participate in the event in Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen. Participating in the event on site is possible only in accordance with the current legal COVID-19 regulations. In addition, the event will be streamed. If you would like to directly participate in the discussion, please register via Eventbrite. You will receive the Zoom link automatically. Otherwise, you will be able to follow the event on Facebook.

Current information on events taking place at Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen in the context of the exhibition Transgressions of the Real can be found on our website.

Participants:

Mykola RIDNYI is an artist, filmmaker and essayist based in Kyiv, Ukraine. He works across media, ranging from early political actions in public space to the fusion of site-specific installations, photography and the moving image which constitute the current focus of his practice. In recent films he experiments with nonlinear montage, and a collage of documentary and fiction. His way of reflecting social and political reality draws on the contrast between fragility and resilience of individual stories and collective histories. A connection with alternative times and phenomena, the influence of the past to the present and future, and the pressing polemic of manipulating historical memory born out of contemporary political agendas are among the main issues revealed in his engagements, initiatives, and projects.

Ridnyi has been a founding member of the SOSka group – an art collective originated from Kharkiv, Ukraine. He is a contributing editor of Prostory, an online magazine about art and society. His works has been exhibited in Venice biennale for contemporary art, The School of Kyiv – Kyiv biennale, Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, daad galerie in Berlin, Transmediale in Berlin, Zentrum fur Kunst und Media in Karlsruhe, Galerie fur Zeitgenossische Kunst in Leipzig, Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, Bonniers konsthall in Stockholm and others. He has been a scholar of Akademie der Kunst in Berlin, Iaspis in Stockholm, Gaude Polonia in Krakow and others.

MOSTYN, Wales UK is thrilled to announce its programme of exhibitions for 2020 which includes solo presentations by artists Kiki Kogelnik, Athena Papadopoulos, Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings, Nick Hornby, Richard Wathen, and Jacqueline de Jong.

March 14–July 5, 2020
Kiki Kogelnik: Riot of Objects
Riot of Objects is the first institutional presentation in the UK to focus on Kiki Kogelnik’s ceramic works. Considered one of the key figures of the post-war avant-garde, Kogelnik’s multidisciplinary oeuvre spans five decades. Her multi-faceted artistic style evolved from painterly abstraction to Pop Art and the representation of the (female) body. This exhibition demonstrates Kogelnik’s boundless capacity for invention and restless commitment to making. Kiki Kogelnik was born in 1935 in Bleiburg, Austria. She lived and worked in New York and Vienna. She died in 1997 in Vienna, Austria. Curated by Chris Sharp in partnership with the Kiki Kogelnik Foundation.

Athena Papadopoulos: Cain and Abel Can’t and Able
This exhibition presents a new body of work by artist Athena Papadopoulos. Using her ever-expanding vocabulary of materials and ancient narratives, which she combines with unlikely elements, this new series of works includes sound, sculpture and painting, and explores human dichotomies, questioning the complicated duality of reason and emotion. Athena Papadopoulos was born in 1988 in Toronto, CA. She lives and works in London. Curated by Alfredo Cramerotti, Director, MOSTYN.

July 18–November 1, 2020
Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings: In My Room
Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings’ first solo institutional exhibition develops the artists’ enquiry into the politics, histories and aesthetics of queer spaces and culture. This newly conceived body of work includes a fresco painting, wall rubbings and a film, and highlights the impact of gentrification upon the city and its gay communities, whilst also exploring the relationship between masculinity, capitalism and power within the urban landscape. Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings were both born in 1991 in Newcastle and London. They live and work in London. Curated by Juliette Desorgues, Curator of Visual Arts, MOSTYN. Commissioned by Focal Point Gallery, In My Room is presented in partnership with MOSTYN and Humber Street Gallery, Hull.

Nick Hornby
This exhibition includes new photo-sculptural works by Nick Hornby, MOSTYN Open 21 “Audience Award” winner, and continues his enquiry into hybridity. Mining the collective index of cultural history, Hornby uses technology not only as a way of invoking potential new worlds but as a way of investigating alternative ways of seeing history. Nick Hornby was born in London in 1980. He lives and works in London and New York. Curated by Alfredo Cramerotti, Director, MOSTYN.

Richard Wathen
MOSTYN Open 21 “Exhibition Award” winner, Richard Wathen‘s solo exhibition comprises a new series of paintings. Rooted in the historical canon of painting, his work focuses largely on portraiture, depicting figures in states of hesitation and contemplation. Through the use of subtle details, his paintings retain a sense of ambiguity by refusing to be fixed in time and place. Richard Wathen was born in London in 1971. He lives and works in Suffolk, UK. Curated by Alfredo Cramerotti, Director, MOSTYN.

November 14, 2020–February 28, 2021
Jacqueline de Jong
Jacqueline de Jong is considered one of the crucial artistic figures of the post-war avant-garde. This exhibition is the first institutional solo presentation of her work in the UK. Throughout her career spanning half a century, de Jong has developed a unique painterly practice. Expressive in style, her work exhibits uninhibited eroticism, violence and humour. In parallel to her work as a painter, she was editor of The Situationist Times (1962-1967) and a member of the Situationist International during her early years in Paris in the 1960s. Jacqueline de Jong was born in 1939 in Hengelo, The Netherlands. She lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Curated by Juliette Desorgues (Curator of Visual Arts, MOSTYN) and organised in collaboration with WIELS where the exhibition will be presented by Xander Karskens (Director, De Ateliers) and Devrim Bayar (Curator, WIELS) (June 12-August 16, 2020).

Anj Smith
This is the first solo exhibition in a UK public institution by Anj Smith.

Working primarily with painting, Smith’s practice reflects on the very possibilities and limitations of the medium itself. Her work excavates often overlooked art histories which she combines with her lived experiences to form the layers within her work. Exploring the very edges of representation, Smith’s intricately rendered paintings explore issues of identity, eroticism, mortality and fragility. Wildly feral landscapes, ambiguous figures, textiles, flora and fauna are intricately depicted.

Drawing upon sources as disparate as the works of Lucas Cranach, and the couture of Madam Grès, Smith weaves archaic traditions and contemporary signs together into a personal cosmology. Her paintings are rich in detail, colour and texture, collapsing strict definitions of portraiture, landscape and still-life whilst allowing elements of each to coexist.

About the artist
Anj Smith (born in Kent, England, in 1978. Lives and works in London) studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and Goldsmiths College in London. Smith has exhibited internationally in museums and galleries such as the Sara Hildén Art Museum, Tampere, Finland; Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen, Germany; Fondazione Stelline, Milan, Italy; Museum Arnhem, Arnhem, Netherlands; The Bluecoat, Liverpool, UK; Knoxville Museum of Art, Knoxville TN; Hudson Valley Centre for Contemporary Art, Peekskill NY; Galerie Isa, Mumbai, India; La Maison Rouge, Paris, France, and Me Collector’s Room, Berlin, Germany. Smith’s work is also displayed in the collections of many leading international museums and collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, UK; MOCA The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles CA; DRAF David Roberts Art Foundation, London, UK and the Sara Hildén Art Museum, Tampere, Finland.

Chiara Camoni
About this and that. The self and the other. Like everything
Featuring new and recent works, this new solo exhibition by Chiara Camoni includes a collaborative site-specific work created for MOSTYN.

Working primarily across drawing, sculpture and installation, Camoni creates spaces imbued with poetic sensibility. Her work is the result of a process which she calls “deviations” where materials are sourced through chance encounters and individuals or “various authors” close to her. Through this process, Camoni claims that “meaning is shared, it’s a small miracle. It’s her and their way of resisting—the fear, the passage of time, the news of the day.”

About the artist
Chiara Camoni (born in Piacenza, Italy, in 1974. Lives and works in Fabbiano, Italy) graduated in sculpture from Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan and later worked at the Institute of Natural Sciences in Naples. Together with other artists, she founded the MAGra Contemporary Art Museum of Granara and the Vladivostok group. Camoni has exhibited widely in Italy with recent solo exhibitions at Arcade, London (2018) and MIMA, Middlesborough (2017).

Chiara Camoni’s exhibition is supported by Arcade, London & Brussels; SpazioA, Pistoia, Italy and Q International.

Nobuko Tsuchiya
30 Ways to Go to the Moon
This is the first solo exhibition in Wales by Japanese artist Nobuko Tsuchiya.

Tsuchiya’s practice combines a wide range of materials, often including household objects, collected over time, which she assembles and casts to create amorphous, hybrid minimalist mechanical objects. Presented across the gallery floor, the works enter into dialogue with one another creating arresting and poetic installations.

Through a careful shift in scale from the minute to the monumental, Tsuchiya’s installations engage with the viewer’s relationship to space. Her sculptures are in constant transmutation; they are repositories of memory and experience, signifiers of past, present and future imaginaries, hovering and shifting through time and space.

About the artist
Nobuko Tsuchiya (born in Japan, in 1972. Lives and works in Japan) has exhibited widely, most notably in 50th Venice Biennale, Italy (2003); New Blood at the Saatchi Gallery London, 2004; Unmonumental: The Object in the 21st Century, New Museum, New York in 2007; Busan Biennale, South Korea in 2016 and Roppongi Crossing 2019: Connexions, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, earlier this year. Recently showing at Leeds Art Gallery as part of Yorkshire Sculpture International, Tsuchiya is also a finalist in the Nissan Award 2020. She is represented by SCAI the Bathhouse, Tokyo; Galerie Aline Vidal, Paris and Anthony Reynolds Gallery, London.

Nobuko Tsuchiya’s exhibition is supported by Anthony Reynolds, London.
The exhibition is also supported by the Japan Society and is an official event of the Japan Season of Culture in the UK.

The exhibition season is curated by MOSTYN Director, Alfredo Cramerotti.
