Gregory Crewdson: Cathedral of the Pines - solo show

Camerimage Film Festival and the Centre of Contemporary Art ‘Znaki Czasu’ in Toruń are pleased to present new photographs by Gregory Crewdson, in collaboration with Gagosian New York.

The work of the American photographer Gregory Crewdson has gained great acclaim from both critics and art collectors worldwide. His photographs are an embodiment of sophistication: meticulously composed and executed with great attention to detail, they easily engrave themselves in the viewer’s memory. Some of Crewdson’s earlier series had been planned months in advance and created with the help of a team of up to 40 people, which naturally evokes associations with a movie set. During his 20 years of activity as a photographer, his unmistakable style has won him global recognition. His latest project, Cathedral of the Pines, however, is his most intimate endeavour yet.

Before coming to the Centre of Contemporary Art in Toruń, Cathedral of the Pines was both exhibited at Gagosian in New York, where it was received with great acclaim. Toruń will be the second of two European cities to hold the exhibition, the other being London.  
On Sunday, November 12, the Centre of Contemporary Art will hold a meeting with the artist.

From 12/11/2017 to 07/02/2018


Sudarshan Shetty

Shoonya Ghar – solo show

'Shoonya Ghar' will be on display for the first time in Mumbai.

Who is asleep and who is awake in this city, this home, this settlement, and this fortress of nothingness? Sudarshan’s exhibition ‘Shoonya Ghar’ is titled after a poetic work by 12th century poet Gorakhnath who also influenced his celebrated successor Kabir. The exhibition features a large scale multimedia installation piece that draws on sculpture, found objects and film. The sculptural piece in the outdoor plaza is constructed like an architectural set, while the film involves building and construction of the set alongside characters enacting scenes in which dramatic action mobilizes conventions of representing birth, death, dance, play and violence in local traditions of story-telling. Thus the set becomes the mise-en-scene for viewing the film.

The film reflects on the construction of the set or the stage, musical score and performance, and the viewer is offered these components in various states of construction and has the opportunity to put these modular pieces together in constructing a narrative that may draw upon their experience, imagination and history.

From 07/11/2017 to 26/12/2017

« The Raft. Art is (not) Lonely » - group show

« The Raft. Art is (not) Lonely » will bring together 73 international artists in Oostende chosen by curators Jan Fabre and Joanna De Vos and will present 52 new creations of young and experienced artists.
The exhibition discusses the artist's quest and the duality of the creation, based on isolation and engagement.

The curators have the intention to stimulate the city in order to make it (re)discovered. Besides the well-known museum, they looked for more unsual places like the Peperbusse restaurant, le 
Palais de Justice, the Eurpacentrum building, the stables of the Wellington track race or the crypts of the Sint-Jozef church.

« The Raft. Art is (not) Lonely » will be an artistic journey disseminated in 22 places of the « City by the sea » .

Jim Dine

Thru The Stardust, The Heat On the Lawn (Claude) - FIAC Hors les Murs


In 2016, Jim Dine was invited for the second time by the Manufacture de Sèvres to develop a new series of works. Working in a studio loaned by the museum, Jim Dine has been creating a spectacular ensemble of ten vases/sculptures in glazed stoneware. Baked and glazed on the premises, with technical expertise and tradition of the Sèvres team, these sculptures integrate his handwritten poem as well as sculpted lids made of tools cast in bronze. They offer a reflection on the power of words - poems as vessels - creating connections between tools and language, the sensuality of clay and the harshness of the distorted bronze. They will be presented in the Tuileries garden as part of the Fiac programme Hors les murs (Fiac Outdoors). Jim Dine was born in 1935 in Cincinnati. He lives and works between Paris, Göttingen (Germany) and Walla Walla (USA).

In good times and in bad. How to operate - group show

How can art endure, age, change? How can the museum design and cultivate relationships with artists, as well as with private and public partners? Indeed, how can it use and enrich the history of its own collection? How can the collection be developed and extended in future? Both in good times and in bad? A new special exhibition will address these questions, focussing in particular on one influential feature of the museum as a public site: it undertakes a responsibility over a long period, promoting discourse and fostering connections and relationships. 
Five artists from the contemporary collection – Monika Baer, Katharina Grosse, Svenja Kreh, Chiharu Shiota and Georg Winter – were asked for suggestions regarding which artist or which work they consider to a be fitting counterpart for their work. Not only does the Museum für Neue Kunst listen to these opinions, it also accords them a lot of weight. What has emerged from these consultations are a number of exciting and unusual connections, dissonances and collaborations which will be on show for a period of six months. 
This experimental format permits the museum to reflect upon its collection and readjust the paradigms and perspectives that attend it. At the same time, it represents an opportunity for a fresh approach to the museum's duties: collecting, conserving, researching, exhibiting and educating.

Supports/Surfaces, Les origines - group show

The exhibition Supports/Surfaces: the Beginning, 1966–1970 shows which process took over the course of the 1960s up to the creation of the group. In order to gain an understanding of the short-lived but important Supports/Surfaces movement, one must plunge oneself into the years of research, confrontations and oppositions that led up to it. These four years were a time of intense and wonderful artistic effervescence in the midst of a period marked by the social and political upheavals of the events of May 1968. An examination of this history from its origins enables us to gain a new perspective on the movement by focusing on these years marked by the jubilation of artists in the midst of reinventing their work from the ground up.

The exhibition brings together major works of this period, some which have not been shown since that time, and provides insight into the profound questioning that lay behind the creations over the course of these key years: the deconstruction of painting, confrontation with Nouveau Réalisme (“New Realism”) and the certain death of painting, external exhibition, the placement of works in space, the importance of the object and its manipulation.
With Avec André-Pierre Arnal, Vincent Bioulès, Louis Cane, Marc Devade, Daniel Dezeuze, Noël Dolla, Toni Grand, Bernard Pagès, Jean-Pierre Pincemin, Patrick Saytour, André Valensi et Claude Viallat.

The Men Who Fell From Earth - group show

Three international heavyweights in contemporary painting will join forces when Danish Tal R and his two German colleagues and friends, Jonathan Meese and Daniel Richter, hold a joint exhibition at Holstebro Kunstmuseum, under the title ‘The Men Who Fell from Earth’.

In recent decades, with an almost unrestrained energy, these three artists have made a name for themselves as significant innovators of the painting tradition. Their inspiration is often drawn from the borderline of what is generally acceptable, and the result is fabulous imagery that demonstrates great colouristic and expressive strength. Although there is sometimes a lot of humour present, the subjects addressed by Jonathan Meese, Daniel Richter and Tal R are both serious and urgent.

Parsifal's Traum: Chefsache »K.U.N.S.T.« - solo show
In cooperation with Wiener Festwochen 

»MONDPARSIFAL ALPHA 1-8 (ERZMUTTERZ DER ABWEHRZ)« is the title that Jonathan Meese gave to his outer-space production of an opera by Bernhard Lang, which will premiere at the 2017 Wiener Festwochen festival. As the title suggests, this is a reinterpretation of the subject matter of Richard Wagner’s last opera »Parsifal« (1882).

In the Picture Gallery, he now lands a new group of works, flying in like a spaceship. Four places south of the Alps that were home to schools of painters become associative theatrical venues, in which Meese, like in »MONDPARSIFAL,« explores the significance of art for the future, interrogating the Old Masters. At the same time, he responds to them with his own pictures and a Janusface, »CHEF DER KUNST« (the boss of art).

Anthony Caro
Anthony Caro - solo exhibition

The van Buuren Museum, in collaboration with the Caro Foundation and the Daniel Templon Gallery, has decided to exhibit the work of a major name, not only in English sculpture, but also on the international stage: Anthony Caro (1924-2013). The artist’s sculptures will grace this stunning setting during the spring and summer of 2017.
Even though modern and contemporary sculpture follows in the footsteps of the previous centuries, there is one significant difference: it has become autonomous and no longer fulfils a specific function. Modern-day artists express themselves in all freedom. Anthony Caro, much acclaimed for his innovative approach of removing the sculpture from its plinth and encouraging direct interaction between viewers and the work, exemplifies this trend magnificently. He saw sculpture as a form of art that opens up onto space.
Visitors will have an opportunity to lose the world in the paths of the park’s Labyrinth, to peacefully meditate in the Jardin du Cœur, both designed by René Pechère, and to explore the marvellously picturesque garden or stroll through the recently restored rose gardens Jules Buyssens originally created.
Galerie Templon will be presenting ‘Table Pieces and Late Sculptures’, an original collection of indoor sculptures by Sir Anthony Caro in Brussels from June 1 to July 22, echoing the exhibition of his works in the gardens of the Musée Van Buuren.

From 5/10/2017 to 10/8/2017

Quite naturally, the extravagant creations of David Rochline – Elizabeth’s brother, deceased in 2015, found their place in this exciting family venture, like the ones of children from La Source association, henceforth at the heart of their artistic and civic concerns.

A World in the City. Zoological and Botanic Gardens - group show

Traveling and exploring the world has always enabled us to meet different peoples, to encounter different cultures and spaces, and to collect artefacts and take them into other contexts. These collections have been used to entertain and to educate, whether in private and feudal collections, the World’s fair, or today’s zoological and botanic gardens. They shape the ways in which we see the world. By collecting, documenting and reproducing we hope to understand the world and its manifold forms of life and diverse cultures.

Curator Kaiwan Mehta has invited JitishKallat,SoniaMehraChawla, SahejRahal, ShelaghKeeley and author RuthPadel to address this 'world in the city'.
