George Condo Bio

George Condo’s work is populated by a cast of characters whose bulging eyes, bulbous cheeks, proliferating limbs, and hideous over – and under-bites set them apart as a singular species. Drawing on vastly diverse painting practices—like Pablo Picasso, Diego Velázquez, Henri Matisse, and Cy Twombly—Condo absorbs a vast range of art-historical sources, yet, at the same, creates a pictorial language characteristically his own, one that investigates the macabre, the carnivalesque, and the abject. He calls his surrealistic style “psychological cubism”, exploiting “our own imperfections—the private, off-moments or unseen aspects of humanity—that often give way to some of painting’s most beautiful moments.” Even Condo’s most abstract works, like Internal Space (2005) with its impenetrable geometric scaffolding of forms radiating from the painting’s center, explore the furthest extremes of the human psyche.

Beautiful New Worlds
Virtual realities in contemporary art
November 11, 2017 — April 8, 2018

Zeppelin Museum
Seestraße 22
88045 Friedrichshafen

The popularization of virtual reality has created a visual revolution that radically changes both our perception of images and our relationship to reality. Virtual spaces create illusionary worlds that can be directly experienced. Viewers immerse themselves in impressions as far away as possible from the outside world, thereby becoming physically involved through interactive elements that resemble their body. Through virtual reality, the audience becomes part of an image that fills their entire field of vision.

Technologies suitable for mass consumption, such as VR glasses, 3D cardboards, 3D projectors and televisions, are increasingly found in everyday life. The various fields of application for these technologies, including 3D-supported operation monitoring, video games, trauma coping and the digitization of lost cultural treasures all illustrate how virtual spatial images already influence different areas of our world and will continue to shape our future.

The exhibition Beautiful New Worlds addresses these recent developments in image technology and explores the resulting entanglement of virtual and physical spaces. A particular focus is placed on the socio-political potential of virtual technologies. In the crosshairs between illusion and critical distance, different artistic positions examine the possibilities presented in the fields of forensics, the porn industry, and modern warfare; after all, control over virtual space is always interlinked with control over physical space. Virtuality and reality are tightly intertwined with one another.

The escape into illusionary worlds is by no means a new phenomenon. Rather, it is grounded in long traditions. Panoramas, dioramas and stereoscopes illustrate the centuries-old history of mankind’s interest in immersive media. The starting point of the exhibition are stereoscopic photographs, which accompany the history of the Zeppelin from 1900 to the 1930s.

In an exhibition space spanning over 1000 square meters, 13 internationally renowned artists will address the relationship between virtual and physical spaces. In this way, the exhibition reflects different varieties of virtuality. Together with the Berlin-based architecture firm Kooperative für Darstellungspolitik, an exhibition course was created in order to make the complex relationship between virtual and physical spaces bodily perceptible for the audience. The range of virtual reality is explored through simulations in which the physical environment is artificially reproduced, through 3D videos, and through virtual reality spaces that create an all-encompassing illusionary space.

Working closely together with immersive visual media, the artists have collaborated with programmers to further develop the existing technology and revitalize the interdisciplinary interface between contemporary art and technological innovation.

Falling Rock (Rosequartz) – Buro Belén

Falling Rock (Rosequartz)
Buro Belén

Falling Rock (Rosequartz) is part of the Falling Rock table series that suit the contemporary interior. The table combines of contrasting mediums: it has a soft textile base on which sits a hard stone slab. The fabric embraces the rough edged stone that forms a polished tabletop. Rosequartz for the table comes from Belén, Brasil.

Buro Belén

Buro Belén is founded by designers Brecht Duijf and Lenneke Langenhuijsen, who met at The Design Academy Eindhoven, The Netherlands. They state that Belén designs from material. Central to their approach are the intuitive, emotional and physical aspects of design, resulting in products and visions that show unexpected applications of material and colors, as well as revaluations of conventional techniques. Belén works on material and color concepts in the field of product, interior and exhibition design. Commissions include work for Georg Jensen, Villa Noailles, Hyères, Textiellab Tilburg and others. Belén’s work has been exhibited at The Textile Museum Tilburg, Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam, Palazzo Clerici Milano. Currently they teach at The Design Academy Eindhoven and Artemis Akademie Amsterdam.

Power Station of Art – Fifth Anniversary

Fifth anniversary

Power Station of Art
200 Huayuangang Rd
200011 Shanghai

Since its inauguration on October 1, 2012, Shanghai’s Power Station of Art (PSA) has so far, in its five years of operations, hosted 51 exhibitions (including three Shanghai Biennales), welcomed nearly 10,000 visitors at most on a daily basis, attracted average visitors of 320,000 every year, and organized nearly 400 educational events such as lectures, performances, and children’s activities. For these five years, the Shanghai Biennale, now accommodated by PSA, has been seeing vast improvements in terms of brand recognition and pioneering significance, whilst properly breaking limits of culture, geography and academic authority to voice its own pursuits. The Architecture & City exhibitions and Researches and the Emerging Curators Project, both launched in 2014, as well as the PSA Collection Series, first started in 2015, have all served as strong manifests of the art museum’s attitudes and visions. And PSA’s sub-spacepower station of DESIGN (psD) and theatrical program ReActor, both operational from 2016, have brought design and social theater into the museum to form with it an organic body that narrates a more comprehensive and vivid contemporary landscape and thinking pedigree.

For now, PSA is hosting chief curator selection and preparation for the 2018 12th Shanghai Biennale. While all remain uncertain, museum director Gong Yan said: “I hope that all future curators can dig deeper into Shanghai’s historical backdrop to identify its unique urban culture, and pull the city back to cultural contexts of China and Asia with more diversified perspectives.”

In 2013, PSA inaugurated the Architecture & City exhibitions and researches, thus becoming China’s first contemporary art organization to include urban architecture into its exhibition system. By PSA’s 5th Anniversary, it has staged 13 architectural exhibitions, including solos for three Pritzkerwinners, Renzo Piano, Toyo Ito, and Shigeru Ban.

Boosted by the PSA Collection Series, PSA will continue to enrich its permanent collections. It currently houses works by both Chinese and international artists like Cai Guoqiang, Datong Dazhang, Li Shan, Joseph Beuys, Yona Friedman, Toyo Ito, and Kazunari Sakamoto. In the future, PSA will continue to expand the boundaries of its collections, taking in non-material works such as sounds and performances, with a plan to set up an exhibition hall dedicated to such collections within the next 3 to 5 years.

As the first public contemporary art museum on the Chinese mainland, PSA has dedicated itself to spreading contemporary cultures and thoughts, promoting cross-disciplinary exchanges, exploring possibilities of Anthropocene arts, and creating new urban cultures and lives.

In 2018, upcoming exhibitions:
–a large-scale solo of French artist Christian Boltanski
–the 12th Shanghai Biennale (November 10, 2018)
