Die Schau findet im ersten Geschoss des Neuen Schlosses in Ingolstadt statt. Dessen beeindruckende Räume treten im Rahmen der Ausstellung neu in Erscheinung. Sie werden auch mit einigen, bisher nie gezeigten Ausstellungsstücken des Museums bespielt sein. Diese Objekte wurden in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Künstler aus der Sammlung eigens ausgewählt.

Collectivity. Objects and Associations in the U.A.E. artworld (group show)
Maraya Art Centre, Sharjah
15 June - 17 August 2017

Collectivity is an exhibition that brings together artworks and objects lent from personal collections across the United Arab Emirates. Rather than being acquired from collectors, institutions, or artists, the traditional faces of the art world, they are from the people who carry out the everyday labor that make the production, circulation, and interpretation of art possible within the county. It’s an inversion of the relationships we generally explore, a focus shift that allows for another way of understanding what ties us together as a community and industry.

Hope and Hazard: A Comedy of Eros, curated by Eric Fischl (group show)
Hall Art Foundation, Vermont
6 May - 26 November 2017

The Hall Art Foundation is pleased to announce a group exhibition curated by American artist Eric Fischl to be held in its galleries in Reading, Vermont from 6 May – 26 November 2017.  Approximately sixty-five artists are represented in Hope and Hazard: A Comedy of Eros, which includes over eighty paintings, photographs, works on paper and sculptures selected by Fischl from the Hall and Hall Art Foundation collections. In this fresh and provocative show, Fischl illustrates the absurd extremes associated with romantic and sexual love. Desire, passion, vulnerability, disappointment, pleasure and torment are expressed as a Greek or Shakespearian comedy – epic and tragic, hopeful and hazardous.

Haus Mödrath - Räume für Kunst will open in April 2017 with the exhibition Aftermieter (Day Roomer), curated by Veit Loers. Quite a few of the about 20 participating international artists have visited Mödrath and are working on their ideas. The focus is on the house itself: civilization and domesticated nature. An abysmal transformation on many levels: from society to individual, from resident to artefact, from animalism to altruism, from artistic strategy to epiphany, from Günther Förg to Eva Kotátková, from Kris Lemsalu to Neil Beloufa – all the way from the cellar to the attic. Next to internationally renowned artists like Andreas Slominski, Michaela Eichwald, Georg Herold, Ed Atkins or Katja Novitskova there are new and re-discoveries like Ajay Kurian and Eric Bainbridge. Several site-specific works will be exclusively produced for this premiere.

Abstract Painting Now! (group show)
Kunsthalle Krems, Krems
2 July - 5 November 2017

Featuring some sixty different art positions, the exhibition Abstract Painting Now! will place the focus on the present-day international situation of the nonrepresentational easel painting, covering the full range of a still significant painterly practice. The historical basis of the show is the development that followed upon Abstract Expressionism, carried above all by Gerhard Richter and Sigmar Polke. While the former after a period of agony, in which his grey “Inpaintings” were created, turned to the beautiful and seemingly expressive, the latter used abstraction as an ironic paraphrase, thus commenting on the veracity of the brush stroke as a mark of the artist self.
