Sophia Al-Maria + Victoria Sin, BCE is presented in the group exhibition Seized by the Left Hand @ Dundee Contemporary Art, till the 22 March 2020. The exhibition takes as its starting point some of the ideas contained within American writer Ursula K. Le Guin's 1969 novel The Left Hand of Darkness. Written 50 years ago, this masterpiece of feminist science fiction is set on an icy planet called 'Gethen' (which translates to 'Winter') whose inhabitants shift and change gender continuously throughout their lives. We as readers are told the story of Gethen from a human perspective through the eyes of protagonist Genly Ai, an envoy sent to the planet to attempt to convince Gethenian governments to join an interplanetary trade coalition. The book had a profound impact on the sci-fi genre at the time of its publication and remains hugely relevant to the world around us today, posing serious and challenging questions about gender, sexuality, the environment, language, communication, power and empire. #sophiaalmaria #victoriasin #dundeecontemporaryarts #ursulakleguin @sinforvictory @dcadundee

Mahoro Seward on Hal Fischer on i-D Magazine.

"“Hal’s set up for the images was quite meticulous, and took some time. As such, the subjects are very aware that they’re having their picture taken,” explains Stephan. “Sometimes they perform for the camera, sometimes they ignore it, which is its own kind of performance. It’s interesting to think about the multiple ways of looking, these people looking at the camera, at us, and how we then look at that as well.” The result is an exhaustive ethnographic study of the community, but from the point of view of an insider. “His approach in Castro Street is somewhat anthropological, but in his own native informant style. He is very much an insider, a part of the community, rather than an outsider looking in,” Stephan concludes."

It's an intimate chronicle of post-Stonewall, pre-AIDS life in the Castro.

Sophia Al-Maria’s new film Limerent Object II, 2019 @ plays at the Faena Festival: The Last Supper, Faena Art, Miami Beach Tull this Sunday 8 December 2019. Al-Maria's new commission for the Faena Forum imagines a cosmic darkroom of myth and image creation. Forming part of the Limerent Object series, the video acts as a tone poem meditating on deep time and history. Encountered as a sinkhole towards which the viewer is drawn and held, the work will be presented centrally on the floor at the Forum Amphitheater. #sophiaalmaria #faenaforum #faenamiamibeach #projectnativeinformant #artbasel #artbaselmiamibeach @faena @faenaart

In the current ArtMonthly, Chris McCormack discusses the current exhibition at the gallery, Hal Fischer, “The Gay Seventies”: “Fischer is acutely aware of the pay offs and gambles of languages that hover outside more regulated interactions, not least the labour of guesswork”. Also Lizzie Homersham discusses Morag Keil’s video installation Potpurri (2013) shown in the ICA London earlier this year. #halfischer #gaysemiotics #projectnativeinformant #chrismccormack #moragkeil #icalondon #lizziehomersham #artmonthly @hal.fischer @chriskbmccormack @lizziehomersham @icalondon

Images of contributions by Georgia Anderson + David Doherty + Morag Keil + Henry Stringer and Hal Fischer in the group exhibition Masculinities co-organized by Bonner Kunstverein, Kölnischer Kunstverein and Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf. Maskulinitäten is an international exhibition with a series of events and accompanying publication project that explores the subject of masculinity via contemporary art. The tripartite presentation is premised by an interest in questioning how a feminist exhibition on masculinity could look. Conceived within the context of prominent and reactionary manifestations of masculinity and with an irreverent, uncompromising critique of its hegemonic forms, the collaboration aims to destabilise patriarchal and heteronormative notions of gender. Including public artworks, performances, plays, readings, lectures, screenings, and workshops, the exhibition seeks to open up alternative spaces of agency and bring performative and transgressive conceptions of identity, sexuality, gender and the body to the fore. The three institutions share a history in variously presenting radical, feminist and queer exhibitions. Whilst many of these focused on reclaiming femininity and female experience from a history of male authorship, this project turns its attention instead to the male subject. The exhibition and the accompanying programme explores shifting perspectives on the representation of the body, the associated politics of power and visibility, and how these are negotiated and deconstructed in art from the 1960s to the present. Encompassing artistic and art-theoretical perspectives from different contexts and periods, the exhibition presents masculinity as a complex, evolving, social construct that remains in continual flux. #georgiaanderson #daviddoherty #moragkeil #henrystringer #halfischer #bonnerkunstverein #kölnischerkunstverein #kunstvereinfürdierheinlandeundwestfalen #masculinities @hal.fischer @bonnerkunstverein @koelnischerkunstverein @alokind @michellecottton @ Bonner Kunstverein

“I’ve noticed a pattern where I keep making spaces that are like the womb. You’re isolated in a plain gray room. It’s usually a very quiet space, though there’s often a whirring or murmur, almost like the epidermal layers of the wall. You can hear the sound of the outside world, but it’s very muffled. The natural light is dim. It’s enclosed, and the world stops. I want to go into these works alone. I’m always gravitating toward these elements” —Adam Gordon in conversation with Ross Simonini in Mousse 68. Gordon’s haunting painting can be seen on the final day of our group exhibition GUBBINAL at the gallery. We look forward to the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery in Autumn 2020 #adamgordon #gubbinal #projectnativeinformant #rosssimonini #moussemagazine @rosssimonini @moussemagazine @ Project Native Informant

Clémentine Bruno’s paintings vibrate singularly and as a composition in our group exhibition GUBBINAL. The works aim to perform a “grammatical constellation of images, a non-linear alphabet that engage the viewer in a semiotic subjective game, which signs are waiting to be looked at.” We look forward to Bruno’s debut exhibition at the gallery in April 2020 #clementinebruno #projectnativeinformant @clementinebruno @ Project Native Informant

23/10/2019

“How do we determine what should be saved, restored, protected and preserved? Considering all the possible death scenarios of a commodity ranging from institutional (death by representation) to organic (decay) and everything in between. I see my position as an artist like that of a post-producer or rag-picker. This is reflected in the name of my practice: “Tenant of Culture”. Borrowing the term from Michel de Certau’s “The Practice of Everyday Life”, who used it to describe the responsibility of the artist as that of the post-producer, shifting through the endless stream of information and impressions provided by daily life. I like to acknowledge the pre-existing lives of the material.” Tenant of Culture, Works and Days 1, 2018. Recycled backpacks, thread, plaster, bungee cord, hooks and steel.
