A Group Exhibition

Opening on Thursday night at Islington Mill Gallery in Salford will see ‘Team Building’ the results of a week long collaborative residency featuring Berlin studio Palefroi, and UK creatives SJ Hockett, John Powell-Jones and DR.ME

Featuring screen prints, riso prints, mono prints on everything from fabric through to brick the team have been working together to create a body of work loosely using the commercial business group bonding sessions commonly known as ‘Team Building’ as a starting point.

The show is curated by Yuck Print House and will also feature a talk the evening before the preview chaired by Laura Snoad of Grafik.

Preview: Thursday 13th November 6pm – 9pm

Runs: Friday 14th November – Saturday 22nd November

An interesting art project set by our friend Jeff at Booooooom, which encouraged (although not exclusively) those who don’t normally make art to draw a person, place, or thing that had a positive impact on their life (accompanied by a few sentences).

The end pieces we’re showcased at the Burrard Arts Foundation in Vancouver, in collaboration with Herschel Supply. You can see some of the submissions (my favourites) and exhibition shots above; visit here and here for more info.

Exhibition

Sculpture After Sculpture

@ Moderna Museet, Stockholm
Group Show by Katharina Fritsch, Jeff Koons and Charles Ray

A focused examination of thirteen masterworks, Sculpture After Sculpture begins with iconic works from the late 1980s and early ’90s that highlight the artists’ early relationships to the commodity and the readymade. The exhibition unfolds in a series of startling juxtapositions that trace the development of their practices from the found to the made, from the performed to the embodied. The show’s highlights include Koons’s celebrated Michael Jackson and Bubbles, 1988, a porcelain-and-gilt confection depicting the late Pop legend with his pet chimpanzee; Ray’s two-ton aluminum Tractor, 2005; and Fritsch’s acid-yellow apparition Madonnenfigur / Madonna, 1987, that famously materialized on a busy square in Münster, Germany, on the occasion of Skulptur Projekte Münster.

Dates: 11th October 2014 – 18th January 2015
