INSIDER - OUTSIDER9. NOVEMBER 2016 - JUNE 11, 2017 The exhibition INSIDER - OUTSIDER shows over 100 works by important representatives of the art of outsider. It is common to all the protagonists and protagonists that their works are attributed either to the kind of breed, to the kind of Naïve or to the outsider art. But what does that actually mean?

Original/ghost/variety/shifted/double/echo — Andrew Bick

9 February - 7 May
Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Selnaustrasse 25, 8001 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Andrew Bick (born 1963 in Coleford, Gloucestershire, lives and works in London) is one of the most important contemporary painters working in the tradition of constructive art. In the interplay of free and geometric shapes, he amalgamates in his technically complex and multi-layered images drawing and painting, line and surface, transparency and opacity, colored and pale, glossy and matte surfaces into a mysterious whole. Colorful triangular and trapezoidal shapes, painted colored surfaces as well as sharp-edged white, gray and black…

A Forgotten Maverick — Marlow Moss

Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Selnaustrasse 25, 8001 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

The British artist Marlow Moss (born 1889 in Kilburn, London, died 1958 in Penzance, Cornwall) is one of the few representatives of constructive art of the first hour.

Her art is inspired by Piet Mondrian's neoplasticism, which she expands in relief and sculptures. One of their…

In the entrance hall of the Toni-Areal a 140 m2 wall is reserved for Museum's presentations.

The apprentices learn how to wield huge theatre…

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

26 August - 19 November
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…

Praised and ridiculed French painting 1820 – 1880

10 November 2017 - 28 January 2018
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…
