news from the Neuberger

Fall Promises Brilliant Color  
Artist Dana Schutz is one of the most important young artists to emerge in the last ten years.

Combining fantasy and reality, humor and horror, the artist creates figurative paintings in a distinctive visual style characterized by vibrant color and raw and tactile brushwork, in which imaginary worlds and hypothetical situations are all at once absurd, strange, and impossible, yet oddly compelling.  

Schutz is the recipient of the 2011 Roy R. Neuberger Exhibition Prize awarded every two years to an artist for an early career survey and monographic catalogue.

The Zabludowicz Collection Curatorial Open......

The Zabludowicz Collection Curatorial Open is now accepting submissions for its 2012 edition. This unique opportunity invites creative professionals from all fields to imagine and realise projects involving works from a contemporary art collection of international repute. 

The Zabludowicz Collection launched its annual Curatorial Open in 2010 to encourage and support experimental curatorial practice. The Open invites creative professionals from all fields to engage with the collection by imagining ambitious projects which include a public exhibition, a publication and a programme of events to be realised in July and August 2012 at the Zabludowicz Collection in London. The Curatorial Open seeks to actively engage new voices in the discussion around works in the Zabludowicz Collection, encouraging points of view from a variety of disciplines and transcending the existing confines of contemporary art curating. The Zabludowicz Collection keenly welcomes transdisciplinary and experimental proposals. 

This initiative builds on the Zabludowicz Collection’s existing commitment to experimental curatorial practices, which has resulted in projects with international curators and curating students, including Proposal for a Floor in New York with Alex Gartenfeld, The Library of Babel / In and Out of Place with Anna-Catharina Gebbers in 2010, Past-Forward with Vincent Honoré in 2008 and the annual Testing Ground programme produced in collaboration with the MA curating students from the Royal College of Art and Goldsmiths College, London. 

Deadline for submissions: 1 November 2011. Winner announced: January 2012. 

Successful proposals will be selected by a panel of eminent judges comprised of: 

Chris Dercon, Director of Tate ModernMaria Lind, Director of Tensta KonsthallMartin Herbert, Writer and Associate Editor, Art ReviewAnita Zabludowicz, Founder of the Zabludowicz Collection

Please visit curatorial-open for further details and an application pack. The pack contains all the information required for the first round of submissions, but enquiries can be addressed to 
The Zabludowicz Collection Curatorial Open is presented in association with Art Review. 

The Zabludowicz Collection is dedicated to bringing emerging art to new audiences and actively supporting arts organisations and artists. It was founded by Poju and Anita Zabludowicz in 1994, and contains over 2,000 works by over 500 artists, spanning 40 years of art production, with a focus on art from the late 20th century to the present day. Since 2007 the collection has run an exhibition space in a former Methodist Chapel at 176 Prince of Wales Road in north London, working with artists, curators and works in the Zabludowicz Collection to produce exhibitions which examine contemporary art practice and present the collection in a public forum. The collection also exhibits in permanent venues in the USA and Finland. 

There's still time to see We Will Live, We Will See, the inaugural Zabludowicz Collection Curatorial Open exhibition, curated by Pavel S. Pyś, which is at the Zabludowicz Collection in London until 14 August 2011.

I wish I could visit: Les tressages de François Rouan LE CATEAU-CAMBRESIS

Les tressages de François Rouan 

LE CATEAU-CAMBRESIS - De Supports/Surfaces à Matisse… François Rouan, né en 1943, s’est d’abord fait connaître par sa communauté de pensée avec Viallat ou Dezeuze, animateurs du groupe Supports/Surfaces, qui remettaient en cause la toile traditionnelle. Elaborant sa propre technique dite de tressage, où il combine des bandes de papier qui font office de fils de chaîne et de trame, Rouan n’a jamais cessé d’être proche d’artistes comme Matisse ou Hantaï. Le premier est une influence marquante depuis ses tout premiers « papiers découpés » des années 1965-66. Quarante années d’évolution, où se croisent désormais la vidéo, la photographie, le dessin, montrent que la figure, sans jamais devenir pleinement reconnaissable, est de plus en plus tapie dans ces combinaisons complexes de couleurs et de découpes.
• François Rouan est exposé au musée départemental Matisse, du 3 juillet au 18 septembre 2011.

Chillida, homme de fer 

SAINT-PAUL-DE-VENCE – C’est une histoire de fidélité : Antonio Chillida (1924-2002) a été le plus jeune artiste exposé lors de l’inauguration de la fondation Maeght en 1964. Près d’un demi-siècle plus tard, alors qu’il est lui-même décédé et que son parc de sculptures au pays Basque espagnol est en difficulté (ouvert en 2000 près de San Sebastián, il est fermé au public depuis le 1er janvier 2011), ce grand ami des Maeght bénéficie d’une grande rétrospective en 150 œuvres. On y voit évidemment les monumentales Stèles et Enclumes en fer de ce « sculpteur devenu forgeron » (selon les mots de Gaston Bachelard), qui a toujours accordé beaucoup d’importance à la création pour l’espace public. Mais aussi toutes les autres facettes de son art : dessins, terres chamottées, reliefs en bois,Torse en pierre, Hommage à la mer en albâtre jusqu’aux dessins des dernières années, baptisés Gravitations, des encres sur papiers découpés.
