http://www.tableauzurich.org No.8 OLAF BREUNING: There's always something to complain about life The exhibition presents a new work by Swiss artist Olaf Breuning. There are photographs on which paradoxical situations were staged with everyday persons and objects.

The targeted, multimedial irritation with optical and contentual means is a common thread through his previous work.…

The exhibition 'Now on View' is a series of snap-shots of our digital present taken by eight young international artists. The seventeen works in the exhibition have been chosen with the aim to highlight the disappearing border between the digital and the real, bringing to the fore how reality takes on a new level of complication that resists any easy categorization and handling. Through their works all artists aim to confront us with the digital present both as critical examination…

Museum für Gestaltung, Pfingstweidstrasse 96, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

How is a chair, a lamp, or a typeface developed? How do designers approach the design process? What kind of cultural and social relevance does design have? The Museum für Gestaltung is launching the Design Studio as a place for active examination, where current and historical design themes can be discussed and tested by visitors themselves. By focusing on processes, the museum presents the contexts in design through exemplary models, projects, and designs, and illustrates the procedures in both design…

Cantastorie

25 August - 8 October
Kunsthaus, Heimplatz 1, 8001 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

The precious ‘Cantastorie’, a fascinating and unknown accumulation of images and image cycles, were handed down from one generation to the next in two families of minstrels and puppeteers from Naples and Foggia who used them to place great cultural issues literally before an audience. In a way they were the first comics, full of beautiful princesses, valiant knights, chaotic battles, gruesome tales and voracious monsters. Some 100 magnificently colourful masterpieces of folk art created in the first decades of…

God’s Children, God’s Poem – Jimmie Durham

26 August - 5 November
Migros Museum, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Opening: Friday, 25 August 2017 In the work of Jimmie Durham (b. 1940 in Washington, Arkansas), the examination of societal and political topics, but also the issue of the representation of civilising values, historicity and societal identity, are of central importance. His installations and sculptures reflect on the status of the object between civilizing fetish and artwork, and are metaphors for the sometimes complex and problematic encounters between the human being, technology and nature, from different cultural perspectives. Durham became…

Cheryl Donegan

26 August - 19 November
Kunsthalle Zürich, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Opening: Friday, August 25, 2017 The exhibition at Kunsthalle Zürich will be the first comprehensive presentation of Cheryl Donegan’s work in Europe. In her films, works, and projects, Donegan investigates the idea of painting, at first seemingly backwards or amiss. If there is an ostensible and assumed lack of professionalism, it offers, in the context of painting, an alternative to marketable virtuosity, generic abstraction, and banal references. We face an oeuvre of “as if” exploring the challenging relationship between thinking…

John Russell

Kunsthalle Zürich, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Opening: Friday, August 25, 2017 John Russell restages ideas of total hybridity of gender, nature, man and beast in his films, images, books, and installations ranging from real to virtual and fictional filtered through literature, theory, religion, and art. His fictions emerge in the middle of anarchy, vacuum, dystopia, where everything is possible and our lives mere networks. Satire meets historical painting meets science fiction, vision, and excess, and before we know it we come face to face with a…

Coffee from Helvécia

29 August 2017 - 28 January 2018
Johann Jacobs Museum, Seefeldquai 17, 8034 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

African Brazil, St. Galler embroidery and a modernist utopia One of the largest coffee plants of the 19th century, located in the Brazilian north-east, was firmly established in Swiss hands. However, what exactly took place there is largely unknown. Today's state of Helvécia hardly reveals the voluntary and involuntary forms of work and life that have developed between European immigrants and African slaves and their free offspring. A century later, another coffee plantation will be the scene of a social…

Over the past decades, more and more legitimate complications have been observed - networking is building visible and invisible bridges between places, people and potentials. Is this networking a never-ending time-spirit, an indispensable attitude on the way to successful projects? Or is it simply the lived realization that cooperation creates the…

We cordially invite you to the vernissage of the exhibition "Liquid Beauty". The new works by Jörg Döring are cheeky, sexy and of a refreshing lightness. The use of epoxy resin, which seems to flow over the surface of the image, gives the images a fascinating depth and transparency, which gives the motifs a unique effect. With the symbiosis of photography, painting and writing elements characteristic of Döring, he remains artistically faithful, but also proves once more how current and…

Praised and ridiculed French painting 1820 – 1880

Kunsthaus, Heimplatz 1, 8001 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Romanticism, Realism, Naturalism, ‘plein air’ painting, Impressionism – these are still the main stylistic labels attached in the German-speaking world to French painting of the 19th century. The artists working in those styles – figures such as Géricault, Delacroix, Corot, Daumier, Millet, Courbet, Manet, Sisley, Monet and Renoir – turned their backs on the officially sanctioned painting of the era, with its academic and neoclassicist style. Yet despite their revolutionary approaches, many of them still adhered to tradition. Highly controversial…
