SCREENING: FABRA I COATS, BARCELONA
Shot in black and white, the film intertwines two narratives. The visual part of the work shows a path through the interior of the famous Maison Wolfers in Brussels, designed by Henry van de Velde. Dora García uses conventions of the subjective camera, which, like a furtive and distracted eye, at a slow and watchful pace, scans the interior of the mansion in decline. Parallel to the image, the audio of the piece develops, transpiring at the same slow pace. It is a description narrated by a male voice that has nothing to do with the images and describes the actions and shots of the only film made by Samuel Beckett, Film (1964), one of the first to use the subjective camera or point-of-view technique. Through this double narrative of audio and video, the artist places us as participating subjects in a scenario that moves between reality and fiction.

SOLO SHOW: CAMERA AUSTRIA, GRAZ
For his exhibition at Camera Austria, Jochen Lempert puts his black-and-white photographs in relation to publications from the extensive library on site. The horizontal display gives rise to a visual dialogue by different photographic carrier mediums, so that form- and content-related design patterns are apparent among the books, as well as narratives, typological features, and associative connections.

SOLO SHOW: KUNSTVEREIN HANNOVER
Belgian artist Koenraad Dedobbeleer’s solo exhibition at Kunstverein Hannover is a joint cooperation with Wiels contemporary art center in Brussels and Kunst Museum Wintherhur. The artist’s exhibition in Hannover will consist in further works developed especially for the space. The interplay between outside and inside, which is sometimes overlooked in the museum architecture of the Kunstverein, will receive special attention through the site-specific installations that the artist is planning. For example, he will address and elegantly stage the partially non-existent or invisible heating systems and other special features of the rooms.
Content-related research on Hannover, particularly on the significance of artistic spaces such as those of El Lissitzky and Kurt Schwitters, but also on the importance of Alexander Dorner, will form the basis of the exhibition. In this way, Dedobbeleer will draw specific reference to Kunstverein Hannover both formally (spatially) and in terms of content (historically).
- 29 November 2019 — 31 March 2020
GROUP SHOW: ESPAC, MEXICO CITY
Inter/medio is a stage for experiences that take place between the fields of cinema and visual arts.

It is an invitation to explore transitional zones as stages, narratives, framings, fictions, assemblages and modes of perception that modulate time and presence.
The exhibition —integrated by the ESPAC Collection and invited artists— includes works by Francis Alÿs, Ghada Amer, Iñaki Bonillas, Daniel Buren, Camel Collective, José Pedro Croft, Daniela Flores, Jorge de la Garza, Concepción Huerta, Elsa-Louise Manceaux, Sam Moyer, Melanie Smith and Sofía Táboas.

- 24 October 2019 — 12 January 2020
GROUP SHOW: CDAN, HUESCA
“El tráfico de la Tierra” is a collaboration between photographers Xavier Ribas and Ignacio Acosta and art historian Louise Purbrick.
This research documents the movement of mineral wealth in Chile and its incorporation into global markets and European landscapes. Saltpeter and copper are its focus. Desert and city, rubble and country houses, ruin and regeneration, landscape and archives, Chile and Great Britain: these are the poles of the same capital circuit based on the transformation of saltpeter and copper as industrial materials.
In the last five years, Acosta, Purbrick and Ribas have met other artists, photographers, writers, curators, translators and activists and have worked alongside them, sharing their concern for a documentary policy sensitive to the inequalities of extractive industries.

Through the work of Matt Mullican (Santa Monica, California, 1951), Waqas Khan (Akhtarabad, Pakistan, 1982), Andrés Fernández (Madrid, Spain, 1973) and Mareva Mayo (León, Spain, 1986), it will be possible to explore the dimension of writing, symbols, cartography and other forms of depiction that negotiate between the inside and the outside or between the subjectivity of perception and the factuality of the world by exploring, by means of texts and images, a kind of visionary geography presented with a great economy of means, and on the contrary, with top-quality iconic and experiential power which is not only the (de)script(ion) of the world, but which also aims at transforming it through or visions and versions. A (de)script(ion) is a way of noting down, telling and transmitting, but also, and above all, of inquiring.

GROUP SHOW: EL PALATINO, ROME
The Palatine Hill, where the palaces of the greatest emperors of Rome were built, becomes a monumental scenario with the exhibition Kronos and Kairos. I tempi dell’arte contemporanea.
The ancient Greeks used to express the notion of time with two opposite but complementary words: kronos and kairos; the first indicating the quantitative duration of the flowing, abstract time; the second, on the other hand, indicating the qualitative aspect, that is the exact moment, the good occasion, but also a specific period of time.
These are two key concepts of Hellenic religiosityexpressing the sense of balance between man and nature.
The selected works, both audiovisual and installations, combine with the scenarios of the imperial palaces: from the imposing Severian Arcades to the peace of the Palatine Stadium, from the elegance of the lower peristyle of the Domus Augustana to the spatiality of Sala dei Capitelli.
Next to site specific works by Matt Mullican, there are works by 14 other Italian and international artists on display; between them Nina Beier, Catherine Biocca, Rä di Martino, Jimmie Durham, Kasia Fudakowski, Oliver Laric and Cristina Lucas.

GROUP SHOW: ROSE ART MUSEUM, BOSTON
Drawn from the museum’s exceptional postwar holdings, Into Form examines the ways in which artists from the late 1950s to the present have sought to break boundaries by questioning representation and notions of medium specificity.
Into Form brings together thirty-four works, created by a multi-generational group of artists, which investigate hybridity and challenge rigid notions of representation. A tension between organic and geometric abstraction runs throughout the exhibition, showing long-standing concerns to connect artistic practice to the body and to natural phenomena, as well as a desire to distill forms to their most essential expression.
The selection includes works on paper, painting, sculpture, and video, demonstrating the depth and breadth of the Rose’s permanent collection.
Next to a painting by Pieter Vermeersch, there are works by artists like Anni Albers, Haris Epaminonda, Alex Hubbard and Cy Twombly on view.
