Until 22 November, the major exhibition 'Hélio Oiticica: Dance in my Experience' is on view at the Museu de Arte de São Paulo. The show borrows its title from a 1965 text by Oiticica and examines the presence of performative aspects found throughout the artist's various bodies of work, taking as its starting point the Parangolé, or 'habitable painting'. Beginning with this key series enables an identification of the rhythmic, choreographic, and performative characteristics that also pervaded Oiticica's earlier, two-dimensional works, influenced by his time spent in the favelas and Samba schools of Rio de Janeiro.

Our next exhibition in East Hampton presents a selection of works by Hugh Hayden. In his practice, Hayden begins each work with objects that inherently carry significant associations with societal categorization, whether race, religion, ethnicity, education or sexuality. Materials range from wood, feathers, hair, kitchen utensils or found objects, which often take traditional, but twisted forms. In this exhibition, Hayden returns to some of his more characteristic wood works that offer a metaphorical disruption of traditional American social context or notions of an ‘American dream’.

On view now through 15 November. Explore further and book your visit here https://bit.ly/3naDEuT

For the final edition of Secret 7", Haroon Mirza is among the fifteen artists given an open brief to rework a set of Rega Planar 1 turntables to be auctioned for charity. All proceeds of this year’s Secret 7”, including one-of-a-kind records and specially created work from a line up of world renowned artists, will go to partner charity Help Refugees. Mirza’s take on the classic Rega Planar 1 incorporates elements of light - a conflation of technology and the art object that recalls Brion Gysin and William Burroughs’ famous Dreamachine.

The auction will take place via livestream on 12 November. Click here to find out more https://bit.ly/34WEEfI

The Longlati Foundation in Shanghai has announced its inaugural exhibition 'Call and Response' featuring works by Judy Chicago and Stanley Whitney, that will be presented at West Bund Art & Design from 11 – 15 November in Shanghai. The exhibition precedes the Foundation’s opening of its permanent space in Shanghai in spring 2021 and marks both artists’ first major exhibition in China.

Highlighting Chicago’s work from the 1960s to 1980s, including a monumental textile-based work from her “Birth Project” series, 'Call and Response' also presents Stanley Whitney’s abstract compositions of stacked and saturated color fields, including one of the largest paintings created by the artist to date, Listening to the Poets (pictured). Whitney’s Untitled (No to Prison Life) – part of a new series of works on paper by the artist that premiered in Lisson Gallery's online exhibition this summer – will be on view to the public for the first time.

For our participation in TEFAF Online this November, a focused presentation will highlight one important oil on canvas work from the significant Metaesquemas series by Hélio Oiticica, coinciding with a solo exhibition of the artist's work at Lisson in New York.

Between 1956–58, the artist would create several hundred Metaesquema paintings that expressed his increased consideration of physical space, and signified his desire to translate shapes in the two-dimensional plane into three-dimensional, performative experiences. Of the six he painted in oil on canvas, just four now survive and only this example, Metaesquema (1958), is vertical. About this work, historian and curator, Lynn Zelevansky, writes: “A vertical line or space – it can be read as either and flips back and forth – divides the canvas in half. There is the sense that this Metaesquema could fold along the center line, suggesting a move toward three dimensions.”

Julian Opie's first solo exhibition with Lisson Gallery in Shanghai opens on 7 November. The presentation features seven works all made this year depicting new subjects in a variety of media, with three large-scale group portraits, three stand-alone sculptures, and one moving computer animation. In this new body of work, Opie draws on the ubiquitous imagery of urban scenes and the cityscape, recalling the vocabulary of everyday life but instilling it with a new energy and vitality. The show coincides with Opie’s presentation as part of the Jing'an International Sculpture Project in Shanghai, as well as the unveiling of his commission for the Huarun Group Embankment Square Pudong.

Now on view at the Serlachius Museum in Mänttä, Finland, Rodney Graham's solo exhibition 'Artists and Models' presents a selection of 30 works from the past 15 years. In his works, Graham explores the layers of Western culture, both everyday life and collective memory. He draws on wide-ranging references to philosophy, psychoanalysis, and the art and popular culture of different eras. 'Artists and Models' presents nine lightboxes, bearing self-portraits in the guise of various artistic types and personas in intricately staged environments, alongside a mise-en-scene of accompanying objects, sculptures and paintings.

Now open New York, a major two-part exhibition of works by Hélio Oiticica is on view through 12 December at our 504 and 508 West 24th Street galleries.

An artist with indisputable influence on all aspects of Brazilian avant-garde culture — visual art, music, theater, literature and more — this exhibition demonstrates the profound impact Oiticica's ideas had on the wider art world, both past and present. A prolific and inquisitive thinker in his short lifetime, the works featured here include examples of his exploration and expansion of formal artistic modes, pushing the boundaries of the possibilities of color and structure, as well as representations of his investigation into experiential, environmental art and interactive installation.

On view at 504 is the ground breaking, large-scale installation Tropicália (1966-67) – the first architecturally scaled installation that the artist realized, and the first in a series of works that would portray, and critique, his native Brazil. The selection of maquettes and gouache on cardboard works on view at 508 demonstrate the geometry and intuition of Oiticica’s early practice, his engagement with the work of European modernists and his association with the pivotal Group Frente in Rio de Janeiro.

Watch now: Mary Corse's walkthrough of her London exhibition 'Variations'

"Nothing is static in the universe, so why make a static painting? It's an unreality." This narrated walkthrough of Mary Corse's second exhibition at Lisson in London, entitled 'Variations', reveals the artist's innovative use of materials that capture, reflect and refract light, ensuring that our perceptions of her paintings change as the lighting shifts or as we move about the space.

In a studio interview, Corse describes her revelation in the face of the one-to-one experience with these works: "I wanted to put the light in the painting, so I found the glass beads. I knew the painting changed as you moved, it wasn't static – the microspheres provide a prism not a reflection, it feels like it comes from within. I've never really been its interested in surface. I always wanted to go deeper and the light in the painting does that."

As part of Musée d’arts de Nantes’ exhibition ‘Hypnose’, Tony Oursler takes over the Chapelle de l’Oratoire with an immersive, site-specific installation. Adding a contemporary edge to the exhibition’s journey into a history of hypnosis and art, Oursler invites viewers to consider the relationship of current anxieties around digital technologies to the diverse material on display from the visual culture of the 18th century to the present day. ‘Hypnose’ mines the conjunction between art, science and popular culture and brings together elements of painting, sculpture, film, and performance. Ever fascinated with the optical histories of technology and their place in the cultural imagination, Oursler conjures the spectres of the past in a luminescent spectacle of the current day.

Anish Kapoor’s major exhibition in the historic grounds of Houghton Hall closes this Sunday 1 November. Set between the backdrop of Norfolk’s idyllic countryside and the classical architecture of the house, 24 sculptures are brought together alongside drawings and smaller works that span the artist's 40 year career.

Amongst sculpture in stone, marble, and onyx, the monumental Sky Mirror, a 5-metre diameter disk of polished steel, reflects and transforms the landscape, whilst smaller works are placed in dialogue with the site's palatial interiors. Houghton’s owner, Lord Cholmondeley, said: “Anish Kapoor is a magician. His elegant reflective pieces throw back the world in mysterious ways.”

FOCUS: Allora & Calzadilla's Electromagnetic Field works

On view in the inaugural exhibition 'Horizon' at our new Cork Street gallery space, two electromagnetic field works by artist duo Allora & Calzadilla are also currently featured as our online exhibition FOCUS. Through a complex research-oriented practice, the artists critically address the intersections between the cultural, the historical and the geopolitical in their work. Their recent project takes electromagnetism, one of the four fundamental forces of nature, as both the subject and the object, as part of the artists' ongoing interest in using electricity in their art to probe the many facets and figures involved in energy consumption.

To create these works, iron fillings are placed on top of a canvas laid horizontally, covering the entire surface. The canvas is then placed above an array of copper cable, laid on the ground, and connected to an electric breaker and outlet in the artist's San Juan studio. When the breaker is switched on, the iron fillings create an assemblage of lines and shapes, controlled by the electromagnetic field. The works' full titles, listing charges for the likes of consumption, purchase power and fuel, denote the many factors that make up the electrical grid.

For the latest exhibition in East Hampton, Lisson Gallery is pleased to present a rare painting from 1993 by Channa Horwitz, presented publicly for the first time, alongside a selection of her signature works on paper. Only receiving endorsement and acclaim later in her life, Horwitz worked in Los Angeles largely outside of the art world canon. Posthumously, she has come to be regarded as an important proponent of Conceptual Art and West Coast Minimalism, and has influenced generations of sound, music, movement, dance, light and animation artists.

Learn more about the presentation here: https://bit.ly/3ogaYBO. Channa Horwitz will be on view at Lisson Gallery, East Hampton from 22 October – 1 November. The space is open from Wednesday — Sunday.

20/10/2020

Until 12 December, the Fluentum Collection in Berlin presents a selection of new and previous works by Christian Jankowski in the exhibition 'Sender and Receiver', tracing the artist's long-time engagement with processes of transmission. A timely reappraisal of some rarely shown work alongside that born out of our current moment, 'Sender and Receiver' takes the foundational concepts of communication theory and probes the precarious threshold between the sent and the received. With as much emphasis on process as end product, Jankowski’s interventions are marked by uncertain outcomes and surprising effects.

Featuring renowned works such as Cleaning up the Studio (2010) and Blutsbrüder (1999), the show premieres Jankowski's new video Sender and Receiver which will also be shown at the Bangkok Biennial's 2nd edition this autumn.
