„Denn die Kunst ist eine Tochter der Freiheit“ – noch bis 28. April 2017 in der Galerija AB, Maglaj


 

Noch bis 28. April ist die Ausstellung „Denn die Kunst ist eine Tochter der Freiheit“ Positionen von 9 Künstlerinnen und Künstler aus Belgien, Deutschland, Irland, USA und Österreich zu Friedrich Schillers Briefe über die ästhetische Erziehung des Menschen 1795, 2. Brief  vom Verein BIENNALE AUSTRIA zu sehen. 

Collage (Kelly Fischer, Koen Soberon, Gerlinde Kosina, Elisabeth Rass, Bernhard Schinko, Herwig Maria Stark, Claudia Hiddemann-Holthoff, Kristina Breitenbach, Lorraine Cross)

In dieser Ausstellung wird sowohl der „Ruf nach Freiheit“ als Grundbedürfnis, die ökologischen Auswirkungen von „Freiheit ohne Gewissen“, der „Kampf um Freiheit“ und seine unsichtbaren Narben die daraus entstehen, der Frage in wieweit Kunst frei von fragwürdigen, aus der Vergangenheit übernommenen gesetzlichen Vorschriften ist, nachgegangen.

Ein weiterer Aspekt ist, inwieweit eine kühne, persönliche Erweiterung der Wirklichkeit Kunst aus den Grenzen der Selbsterziehung des Individuums zur existenziellen Lebensgrundlage in freier Selbstbestimmung werden lässt.

Wie sehr Friedrich Schillers Briefe über die ästhetische Erziehung des Menschen auch heute brisante Aktualität besitzen, zeigen die aktuellen kultur-gesellschafts-politischen Ereignisse

FOR ART IS A DAUGHTER OF FREEDOM

Applications from established and emerging curators (3+ years of professional experience) will be considered. A jury of professionals who live in, or have extensive knowledge of the region, will select the successful applicant.

The inaugural CPPC Travel Award was granted in 2012 to Pablo León de la Barra, who conducted research trips to the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Panama, and Puerto Rico with the aim to reread seminal historical moments in the region that have acquired new relevance in the current political and economic reality. The 2013 recipient, Remco de Blaaij, set out to research women activist practices in the countries of Guatemala, Jamaica, Nicaragua, and Suriname. The 2014 awardee, María Elena Ortiz, explored film and video practices in Aruba, Martinique, the Bahamas, and Trinidad and Tobago. In 2015, the recipients Leah Gordon and André Eugène traveled to the Dominican Republic and Trinidad and Tobago to research regional models of artists’ self-organization, alternative strategies of community education, and discover new exhibition networks for Haitian artists.

ARTE PONTE New York Gallery – Call for Artists – THE STILLED LIFE


THE STILLED LIFE, NEW YORK 20TH JULY – 25TH AUGUST 2017

Applications close June 2nd. 

The exhibition will be held July 20th – August 25th in our gallery premises in New York, USA, located in   529 W 20th Chelsea.

When looking at old Dutch and German still life masters, objects have always served to convey a meaning. Some objects have a universal meaning that has remained unchanged until today; while others have developed recently or have altered their symbolic message. These changes are very much dependent on the context, environmental and social influences and other objects around it.

This exhibition explores how a still life artwork – regardless of medium or genre – can tell a complex story. How objects are placed, the composition of the work, combined with the literal and metaphorical symbolic meanings enable an enriching experience for the viewer.

HOW TO APPLY

Artists working in any medium are invited to apply for this upcoming exhibition, to be held at ARTEPONTE New York gallery premises in Chelsea.

Open to all media: painting, drawing, collage, photography, sculpture.

PASCAL DOROTHEE, France. At the age of 13 he began to study audio-visual techniques and studied the old technique of silver photography. Since many years he produces international exhibition activity and cooperation in various international projects. His works capture the moments and emotions he has experienced on his many trips.
(pascal-dorothee.com)

MARLEN PEIX, Germany. She finds her motifs in everyday life. Supposedly secondary or even inconspicuous becomes by analog and digital recording and editing techniques to abstract picture compositions of light, color and form. Since 2008 she pursues an international exhibition activity. She usually works very experimentally. In the course of time, she has developed a very different and, in some cases, very contrasting pictorial language. (marlen-peix.de)

ELISABETH RASS, Austria. The love of photography was put into her cradle. Since many years she follows a continuous engagement and visualization of the apparently everyday occurrences. Since 2010 she produces an international exhibition activity. The camera as the preserver of the moment, short moments captured, unadulterated. (elisabethrass.com)

BERNHARD SCHINKO, Austria. He finds his artistic expression in textile art, painting, object art and photography. Since 1985 he pursues an international exhibition activity. In his photographic works the boundaries between realistic representation, post-processed and alienated photography and painting disappear. (textile-art.at)

HANNAH SCHWANZER, Austria, studied at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. Since 1978 she produces international exhibition activity and numerous publications. She illustrates pictorial illusions of psychographic moments and plays with the symbolic effect of colors and spaces. (hannah-schwanzer.at)

MANFREDO WEIHS, Austria. Photography is his life and he learned it from scratch. During many years working as a press photographer, he also used the camera as an experimental tool. Together with the artist Daisy Gold, he founded the studio coolpool in Vienna in 2013. His experimental work shows a great technical know-how and a lot of attention to details.
