Huang Rui presents a performance at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery Art Projects: Black and White Cats 49,Then?
27 Nov 2014
Chinese Artist Huang Rui will present a performance art work entitled Black and White Cats 49,Then? Inspired by the slogan by Deng Xiaoping, “It doesn’t matter if a cat is black or white as long as it catches mice.” Huang Rui will create a live action painting that is 15 meters long and 4 meters tall. The painting is divided into 50 sections. The painting represents the colors black and white to signify the Yin and Yang. Divided into sections of 7, Huang Rui will paint the bodies of 7 women and create rubbings onto the canvas with their bodies. They will first be painted white and then black, eventually the rubbings will become grey. The numbers have significance: 7 times 7 is 49. China was established in 1949. 49 further is an important number in Buddhism as it is said that when one dies it takes 49 days for rebirth. The Buddha, Siddhāttha contemplated for 49 days before reaching enlightenment. Hong Kong is now in the 17th year since the Handover from the British. Deng Xiaoping created the slogan: “One Country Two Systems, 50 years Unchanged.” While a third of the 50 years has been completed the One Country Two Systems idea has already been challenged. Huang Rui’s performance asks what comes after 49?

The Propeller Group and Christopher Myers, based between New York City, Los Angeles and Saigon, have encapsulated the elusive butterfly effect — the theory of "nonlocality” whereby two distinct phenomena affect one another across a vast expanse of space and time. The film, The Living Need Light, And The Dead Need Music, a phrase taken from a Vietnamese proverb, documents the funeral tradition of Saigon from the vantage of New Orleans: two cities, two cultures, mirroring each other from worlds apart.

Lindy Lee’s work came to prominence in the 1980s and has evolved in tandem with key developments in Australian art, including the turn towards Asia. The first major survey of this artist’s practice, the exhibition explores Lee’s acclaimed early photocopy work, and the work that evolved following her embrace of Buddhism and her Chinese heritage. Also included are recent works in which she employs pyrographic techniques to evoke the infinity of the universe, and compositions comprising flung bronze.

The Roving eye: Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia

Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia
Curated by Iola Lenzi
17 September 2014–4 January 2015

From 17 September on, ARTER will host a large curated exhibition of Southeast Asian contemporary art for the first time in Turkey. Entitled “The Roving Eye: Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia” and curated by researcher and critic Iola Lenzi, the exhibition will present 40 works by 36 of Southeast Asia’s most innovative contemporary artists from Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam and Malaysia.
As well as introducing forms, materials, conceptual methodologies, and aesthetic codes commonly featured in the artistic production of the region, the exhibition will offer critical insights into today’s regional culture and the many tensions cleaving the societies of Southeast Asia. In particular, The Roving Eye argues multiple points of view on self and society as a central canon of Southeast Asian contemporary art.
The Roving Eye will feature installations, videos, sound pieces, photography and performances, a number of which were especially commissioned for the exhibition. The exhibition will place particular emphasis on works that embrace experience, interactivity and participation.

Dinh Q. Lê at the Gwangju Bienale, Gwangju, South Korea, 5 September – 9 November 2014
28 Aug 2014
The 10th Gwangju Biennale: Burning Down the House explores the process of burning and transformation, a cycle of obliteration and renewal witnessed throughout history. Evident in aesthetics, historical events, and an increasingly rapid course of redundancy and renewal in commercial culture, the Biennale reflects on this process of, often violent, events of destruction or self-destruction―burning the home one occupies―followed by the promise of the new and the hope for change.
The exhibition is curated by Jessica Morgan, Artistic Director of the Gwangju Biennale and The Daskalopoulos Curator, International Art, Tate Modern. FatosUstek and Emiliano Valdes are Associate Curators for the Biennale, EnnaBae is Associate Curator for Performance and Teresa Kittler is Assistant Curator.

The exhibition Right is Wrong / Four Decades of Chinese Art from the M+ Sigg Collection introduces art from four decades and presents the rapid emergence of contemporary art in China.

Comprising almost 80 works of various formats and mediums: painting, photography, sculpture, video, installation and performance, Right is Wrong presents a selection of seminal pieces by key figures in contemporary Chinese art history. The works are part of one of the world's foremost collections of Chinese contemporary art; the M+ Sigg Collection from M+, the museum for visual culture in Hong Kong, presently under construction and due to open in 2017.

Crossing the Farther Shore (in progress detail), 2014
DINH Q. LE: CROSSING THE FARTHER SHORE @ Rice Gallery, University of Texas
11 Apr 2014
Dinh Q. Lê is planning an ambitious, architectural installation of black and white photographic ephemera taken from the Vietnam War era, pre-1975. He has collected these photographs over the years that are often similar to the images that might fill a family’s photo album: portraits, scenic vistas, snapshots from events, etc. They are stitched together in monumental grids and paired with text handwritten on the back of the photographs. Specific recollections of the Vietnam War era have been chosen by Dinh Q. Lê from oral history interviews, including those conducted by Rice University’s Chao Center for Asian Studies with Houston’s Vietnamese community, the second largest outside of California. The large photo assemblages will be hung from the ceiling to create ethereal, cube-like structures inspired by the rectangular mosquito nets used in Vietnam. Dinh Q. Lê characterizes the gesture as a “sleeping, dreaming memory of Vietnam.”

Dinh Q. Lê, Erasure (2012)
19 Feb 2014
Disrupted Choreographies weaves eight contemporary voices from Vietnam who propose alternate narratives between colonial histories, collective behavior, systems of class and the crumbling of ideological thought.

This exhibition challenges the relationship between Vietnam and the ‘global’ stage, illustrating an artistic community critical of the historical consciousness that often stands in for its name (ie. the guilt of war; the tourist getaway; the nostalgic colonial).

The artists in this exhibition juxtapose historical event and social phenomena; relevant to the diasporic contexts they conceptually and physically traverse. Their dance in the residual space of failing ideologies, post-industrialized communities, heterotopias and the ramification of representation are careful artistic choreographies that they understand are in cyclical movement, ie. in repeat.

Participating artists: Lena Bui; Tiffany Chung; Dinh Q Lê; Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba; Nguyen Huy An; Nguyen Thai Tuan; Nguyen Trinh Thi and ‘The Propeller Group’
