Hirschhorn’s work “CNN” from 2002 is shown in the group exhibition ‘Theater of Operations. The Golf Wars 1991 – 2011’ at MoMA PS1. American-led military engagement in Iraq over the last 30 years has had an indelible impact on contemporary culture and the work of artists around the world. This large-scale group exhibition examines the legacies of these conflicts beginning with the Gulf War in 1991, featuring over 300 works by more than 80 artists based in Iraq and its diasporas, as well as those responding to the war from the West. As you walk into Moma PS1 in Queens, New York, visitors are greeted with an unlikely wall sculpture – the CNN logo at the end of an oversized gold chain. The artwork criticizes the pivotal role that CNN played in accelerating the 24-hour news coverage of the Gulf war, setting the pace for war news.

Douglas Gordon at Eva Presenhuber

Douglas Gordon’s fifth solo exhibition at Eva Presenhuber  02.11.19 – 15.12.19. Douglas Gordon is known for his interest in cinema and images taken from collective memory and everyday culture. His work encompasses film, performance, sculptural installation, and conceptual text. The exhibition is centered on the ongoing installation Happy Birthday To Me…, and features two film installations Video Diptych and Sharpening Fantasy, alongside text works and burned Andy Warhol skull posters. In the central installation, viewers find themselves confronted by human skull replicas randomly strewn in a corner. The gallery walls and carpet are red, the light penetrating the red gel-covered windows intensifies the sacred atmosphere evoked by the skulls. Each skull represents one year of the artist’s life; engraved into each skull are fivepointed stars representing his age, one star for each year.

‘red nerv’ by Miroslaw Balka will be inaugurated at Castello di Ama, Siena, Italy

Castello di Ama is pleased to announce the inauguration of red nerve, a new site-specific sculpture by Mirosław Bałka. This occasion marks the sixteenth addition to the series of permanent artworks conceived and realized for Castello di Ama for Contemporary Art, already including works by Anish Kapoor, Lee Ufan, Daniel Buren or Louise Bourgeois. At Castello di Ama, Bałka has suspended a single red thread in a cantina from ceiling to floor—a simple but radical gesture that has profound philosophical implications. A turning mechanism causes the thread to twitch and stir, investing it with a living presence and sensitizing the space around it. As the title implies, the thread is a metaphor for the human body, like a vein or umbilical cord that sustains a fragile and tenuous existence in the surrounding darkness. There is a spiritual dimension as well: the thread spanning the extreme height of the cantina metaphorically links earth and heaven, the visible realm of concrete things and the invisible realm of the spirit. In red nerve, Bałka has created an image of the contingency and vulnerability of the human condition. Curated by Philip Larratt-Smith Opening 15.10.2019 at Castello di Ama, Gaiole in Chianti, Siena, Italy.
