GROUP SHOW: Centro Botín, Santander
The histories of art and of architecture are intrinsically linked. Over the course of time, artists and architects have collaborated, the former painting frescoes and/or producing wall reliefs and sculptures inside buildings imagined by the latter. The advent of the museum — a public space whose sole function is to collect, conserve, and present art —modified the dynamics of that relationship. Indeed, if the building becomes the repository of the work of art, the question of its importance as a context becomes more salient. This is even more so when an architect of renown conceived the building for that purpose, as is for instance the case with Centro Botín.
Works by: Leonor Antunes; Miroslaw Balka; Carlos Bunga; Martin Creed; Patricia Dauder; Fernanda Fragateiro; Carlos Garaicoa; Carsten Höller; Julie Mehretu; Jorge Mendez Blake; Muntadas; Juan Navarro Baldeweg; Sara Ramo; Anri Sala; Juliao Sarmento.

GROUP SHOW: Musée de Rochechouart
Mathieu K. Abonnenc, Vanessa Billy, Rossella Biscotti, Tony Cragg, Daniel Gustav Cramer, Richard Deacon, Julien Discrit, David Horvitz, Anya Gallaccio, Rodney Graham, Jochen Lempert, Christian Lindow, Christiane Löhr, Richard Long, Jean-Charles de Quillacq, Gilberto Zorio
In the early 90s, Tony Cragg made a sculpture consisting of sandblasted glassware stacked in a form that simultaneously suggested the outlines of a landscape and the display of artefacts from an archaeological dig. The title it gave to the work, Eroded Landscape, points first and foremost to the passage of time and the resultant gradual erasure of whatever it has produced.
Under the same title, the current exhibition surveys three decades of acquisitions for the museum’s collection, revealing an uninterrupted fascination with art that is minimal, schematic and condensed in form. Selected works by 16 artists are displayed in Rochechouart Castle’s 1st and 2nd floor galleries and the exhibition proposes a poetic itinerary centred around memory or souvenirs and the use of simple forms to transcribe natural phenomena. Pieces range from Richard Long’s ritualised artworks to Anya Gallaccio’s sublimation of light.

GROUP SHOW: Centre d'art contemporain d'Ivry - le Crédac, Ivry-sur-Seine
Ideas often arise from walking, swimming in the clear water of lakes, eating a toast of jam, during insomnia, playing Memory, reading inspired texts where new, solidly structured ideas develop . When they do appear, they should be squeezed hard enough to hold them to the worktable. Whether in the kitchen, workshop or office, tables are the place where intuitions take shape.
The works sent by the artists in the show are exhibited at le Crédac on a multitude of tables gleaned while thinking of each of them: kitchen, work, formica, wood, plywood, painted or in the rough, square, rectangular or circular. Simple in shape, these tables are so many islands that coexist and form an archipelago, composing a landscape evocative of the work of thought and intimacy, of the model, of the sketch or of the completed form.
- 10 September — 23 December 2020
GROUP SHOW: espacio artkunstarte, MADRID

SOLO SHOW: MAC's, GRAND-HORNU
In 2020, the MAC’s will be presenting the first retrospective in Belgium of the Californian artist Matt Mullican. Since the early 1970s, Matt Mullican has sought to structure the world and to understand it using various supports (stone slabs, flags and banners, stained-glass windows or computer assisted compositions, etc.) to establish a truly personal cosmology. This mental map, which he named “the five worlds”, refers to the various levels of perception with which he associates colours (yellow for art, red for ideas, etc.). In this way the artist will invade the space of the MAC’s to plunge the visitor into the heart of his original universe and confront us with the numerous aspects which characterise human life.

SOLO SHOW: ROSE ART MUSEUM, WALTHAM
For her first solo exhibition in the United States, Dora García (b. Valladolid, 1965) focuses on her work of the recent years to open new platforms of analysis, reflection and visibility. Through a practice that prioritizes the use of performance in a participative manner, García will transform the Lois Foster Gallery into a living platform to investigate the relationship between audience, architecture and artistic work.
Love with Obstacles includes both newly commissioned works and existing projects, and also features drawings, films, intervened documents and letters that will be activated through performances and readings to articulate a collective space where dialogue is central. Two newly commissioned works will be premiered at the Rose Art Museum: the film Love with Obstacles, focusing on the legacy of the extraordinary author, feminist, October revolutionary, political exile and diplomat, Alexandra Kollontai (St. Petersburg,1872– Moscow, 1952) who advocated for the sexual emancipation of women and radical equality; The Labyrinth of Female Freedom, a performance where female poetics and politics meet; and a new Golden Sentence: “She has many names” opens the exhibition. Love with Obstacles also brings together for the first time rarely seen documents from Brandeis University Special Collections that the artist has personally selected and classified, highlighting the institution´s unique legacy of committed work to social justice and in the struggle for human rights.

GROUP SHOW: BOMBAS GENS, VALÈNCIA
Plants or vegetal forms representation have been a constant through history of photography.

SOLO SHOW: LE CRÉDAC, IVRY-SUR-SEINE
The show at Le Crédac called Jardin d’hiver (Winter Garden) followed on Sudden Spring and Predicted Autumn,  a program that the artist pursued in time with the seasons. Lempert designed an installation of vitrines like botanical cases but holding photo compositions that play out a vegetal motif as the prints of a nature hanging on the promise of renewal. An Ipomoea tricolor (the morning glory), a detail from Botticelli’s Spring, and the floral print of a cotton shirt are elements that form a visual narrative through the play of free conceptual or formal associations fashioned by the artist.
 At the Bildmuseet, University of Umeå, Sweden (2018), and the Musée d’art contemporain de la Haute-Vienne, Château de Rochechouart (2018).
- 17—21 December 2019
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.
- 7 December 2019 — 16 February 2020
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.
- 30 November 2019 — 26 January 2020
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. Conceived simultaneously as an exhibition, a book and a learning program, each dimension of the project incorporates strategies from experimental cinema to revisit the outlines traced by the historical development of artistic mediums. 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.
