Yoko Ono, -flux

Yoko Ono

Grapefruit

6 June - 16 September 2012

Moderna Museet
Stockholm

Curator: Cecilia Widenheim.
Yoko Ono is a pioneer of conceptualism and the international Fluxus movement, and has been sharing
her message of peace and love with the world for nearly 60 years. The Moderna Museet exhibition
highlights Yoko Ono’s book Grapefruitfrom 1964 and features selected instruction pieces that encourage
new, imaginative ways of looking at life and creating art. For the exhibition Yoko Ono has made a new
piece called Summer Dream and a new instruction piece, that some 20 artists have been invited to
respond to. Moreover, Yoko Ono will realise two of her works together with the public on Djurgården
in Stockholm during the full-moon night between 4 and 5 June.

Grapefruit is a seminal collection of texts, so-called instruction pieces, and has been reprinted in
many editions since 1964.

"I named my first book of instructions with the name of the fruit I loved. Grapefruit is a hybrid of
orange and lemon and to me, it represented East and West , the two cultures in my life which gave
the instructions the power of the Universe. Have fun with it." Yoko Ono

In the 1950s, Yoko Ono had already begun experimenting in the borderland between music, performance,
poetry and visual art. She used the concert and event formats as a place where the audience was
encouraged to enact her ideas, or simply to think and develop them in their own minds. With a background
in classical music composition and studies in philosophy, Yoko Ono began writing “scores” for art, that
is, instructions that could be interpreted again and again by audiences and colleagues. In each new
context, new expressions and nuances arise, depending on who is doing it and where. Yoko Ono’s
practice is therefore a unique prelude to conceptualism, which emerged in the 1960s. In an era of
radical change, artists were eschewing the notion that art was primarily physical objects to be
produced and consumed. They challenged the traditional art concept and began working with ideas,
sounds, actions and time as artistic materials. Language became a key element.

"Grapefruit is undoubtedly one of the world’s ten best artist’s books. It has everything – humour,
poetry and breathtaking, inspiring ideas. With her experimental films and instruction pieces,
Yoko Ono is a unique voice in 1960s avant-garde art. And as a woman and conceptual artist, she
is a strong role model for a new generation of artists", says Cecilia Widenheim, curator of the exhibition.

One of Yoko Ono’s most famous instructions is Cut Piece from 1964, which the artist herself has
performed on several occasions. The enacted situation consists of Yoko Ono sitting on a stage
before an audience, with a pair of scissors in front of her, inviting the audience to cut pieces from
her clothing. Filmed documentations of Cut Piece, from 1965 and 2003 and several of Yoko Ono’s
legendary Fluxfilms will be shown in the exhibition at Moderna Museet. Yoko Ono’s films have a
unique position in 1960s experimental film-making. Several of them are based on instructions
published in Grapefruit – for instance, the film No. 1 (Match), which is based on the text Lighting
Piece from autumn 1955: “Light a match and watch till it goes out.”

For the exhibition at Moderna Museet, Yoko Ono has written a new instruction, Search for the
Fountain. The text has been sent to some 20 artists who have been invited to respond to the text
in various ways. Search for the Fountain is a distinct example of how Yoko Ono intentionally lets
the materialisation of her artistic ideas lie open to interpretation, but also how she assumes that
viewers will handle and reinterpret the concept from their own perspectives. Among the participating
artists are VALIE EXPORT, Tris Vonna-Michell, Julieta Aranda, Simone Forti and Emily Roysdon.
For all participating artists, please visit Moderna Museet Press.

Fullmoon night at Djurgården in Stockholm
Yoko Ono’s works Evening till Dawn (1964) and Secret Piece (1953) will take place on the night
between 4 and 5 June on Djurgården in Stockholm . The event is arranged in conjunction with the
exhibition Yoko Ono: Grapefruit. The event consists of two parts: Evening till Dawn, which starts
at dusk (approx 9.30 pm) on 4 June; and the second part, Secret Piece, in which three musicians
improvise in the grove to the first sounds of the dawn. Secret Piececan be enjoyed between
around 3.00 am and 4.00 am on 5 June. The meeting place is Café Ektorpet at Waldemarsudde
on Djurgården. RSVP by 1 June to: press@modernamuseet.se

The exhibition is supported by Vinge.

Invitation to the press preview on 5 June at 14 pm - 15.30 pm of Yoko Ono: Grapefruit.
Introduction by the director of Moderna Museet, Daniel Birnbaum, co-director Ann-Sofi Noring,
and the curator Cecilia Widenheim.

Exposition du 04 au 16 juin 2012
Vernissage le lundi 04 à partir de 18h30

Le travail de Jean-Pierre Alis a toujours exercé sur moi une certaine fascination. Il a pendant quarante ans assuré, pratiquement à lui tout seul, l'existence de la représentation des arts plastiques contemporains à Marseille. Il a pris depuis peu une retraite active puisque je le soupçonne de se livrer à l'écriture (et je l'espère). C'est un peu en lisant qu'on devient écrivain.
Je lui ai proposé une carte blanche à la Galerie du Tableau,voici quelques temps, et il a choisi, à l'occasion de la coupe d'Europe de football, de reprendre de façon réduite, lieu oblige, l'exposition montée en 1998 avec le concours de la Fondation Regards de Provence, “Art tout foot“.
Cette manifestation réunissait deux équipes d'artistes, soit 24 partenaires avec les remplaçants, Jean-Pierre Alis a privilégié, à cette occasion, de présenter le travail de Bruno Guittard.

“Atmosfere Oniriche” di Pippo Altomare, Italia


COMUNICATO STAMPA
Chiesa San Calogero – Nicosia (EN)
dal 1 giugno al 20 giugno 2012
“Atmosfere Oniriche” di Pippo Altomare
A cura di Nino Arrigo e Gianfranco Labrosciano
Venerdì 1Giugno, alle ore 19.00, presso la chiesa San Calogero di Nicosia, attesa inaugurazione della personale del maestro Pippo Altomare di Sperlinga.

La rassegna, dal titolo “Atmosfere oniriche”, attinge dal serbatoio astratto ed espressionista dell’artista che trova, in una folta selva di simboli e metafore, lo spunto per scandagliare, a vario titolo, i territori della psiche.
Attraverso una significativa selezione di lavori, la mostra offre l’occasione di conoscere l’intera opera dell’artista in bilico tra suggestioni concettuali e fisicità espressiva, in una dialettica continua tra una pittura di tipo costruttivista ed una di tipo espressionista. Quella di Pippo Altomare è un’arte di carattere mentale, ideale, ispirata a quanto più di irreale ed irrazionale si cela dietro ai sogni. La sua pittura non finisce di affascinarci e di farci riflettere portandoci, opera dopo opera, sogno dopo sogno, a rincorrere, riconoscere o ricordare una storia fatta di immagini evocate attraverso colori cangianti e forme naturali, petali, foglie e realtà di risonanza vegetale.
Nella stessa serata della mostra, che sarà inaugurata dal critico Gianfranco Labrosciano, il Dott. Nino Arrigo annuncerà ufficialmente la nascita dell'associazione culturale Museo del Presente, vera e propria novità nell’ intero territorio ennese.
Un evento di particolare interesse che conferma la naturale vocazione culturale del territorio della Venere di Morgantina, della Villa del Casale e del soffitto ligneo dipinto unico in Europa, e della sua inclinazione nei riguardi delle arti figurative e non solo. Obiettivo del Museo del Presente è, infatti, quello di rendere manifesta, dopo anni di oblio, l’inclinazione naturale di questo territorio al mondo dell’arte in tutte le sue sfaccettature.
L’allestimento della mostra è a cura di Filippo Altomarein collaborazione con Gina Scardino, Santino Barbera e Giuseppe Scarlata.

Barabara ROSENTHAL @ Fourth Street Photo Gallery, NYC tonight!

TONIGHT IN NEW YORK! Come join me!!


On Thursday, May 24, the Fourth Street Photo Gallery will present "DECADE OF MADNESS: COLD TURKEY AT THE DOG RUN", a photo-projection, reading and talk by BARBARA ROSENTHAL about the physical, emotional, psychological and creative events during her struggle to rid body and brain of twelve years of psychiatric medications, and the book of that title currently in development.

The topic will include Rosenthal's thoughts about photography, and all art, as a manifestation of the artist's "soul and psyche," and her directive to "photograph in a trance-state."

The photo-projections will include many images from her "Surreal Photography" work, particularly from the portfolios "Trapped Figures", "Dangerous Locations", "Renegade Horses", "Dogs in the City", and "NYC."

Central to the recovery process was the rhythm of taking her dog, Russel, to Washington Square at daybreak after sleepless, panicked, pain-wracked nights of withdrawal, observing the small things that go on in that protected environment over the course of a summer.

Rosenthal has relentlessly chronicled her life in Journals for 50 years, and released her mind in Photography for 40. Candidly revealing her own experience in image and text, she molds plastic elements like time, repetition, structure and description, using the physical space of the dog run to explore psychological space, and to create a counterpoint between several overlapping societies: human and animal; stranger and family; group and individual; familiar boundaries and the unknown outer world.

For this extremely introspective artist, self-examination is also a vehicle for universal examination. When discussing this with her, Barbara Rosenthal said, "Ultimately, everyone faces some form of desperation, and every sensitive person faces the question of why go on living, or how to go on living, how to justify one’s own life, especially a life in the arts, when surrounded by the undeniable brutality of life beyond one’s own safe gates"

Thursday, May 24.
Reception: 8pm.
Projection, Reading & Talk: 9pm.

foto mostra MIRABILLIBRI, Il VELIERO PARLANTE, Castello di Copertino-Lecce

Gentili,
in mostra 74 Libri degli Artisti sottoelencati. Lo spazio affidatomi mi ha costretto, come sempre, a una scelta. Chissà che qualcuno in futuro non mi conceda un intero castello o una residenza a più piani! Spero che l'esposizione di tutti i vostri libri risulti chiaramente documentata.
Le foto iniziali rappresentano l'avvio della Manifestazione "Il velerio parlante", mostra di libri realizzati dalle Scuole del territorio che hanno aderito al Progetto.
Tutta l'ala del piano terra del Castello era un tripudio di Libri coloratissimi.
La nostra mostra era invece collocata nel piano nobile superiore, raggiungibile atttraverso una comoda scalinata.
Fioccano intanto richieste di altre Mostre anche al Nord.
Parola d'ordine : persistere e resistere.
Arrivederci a luglio con le vostre nuove meraviglie.
Grazie a tutti
Maddalena
