Opening, Friday 05 May 2017, 18–20 h 06.05.–30.06.2017 Daniel Karrer’s third solo exhibition at Herrmann Germann Contemporary, Hands Dripping Red with Sunset, can be understood as a continuation of his exhibition at the Kunsthalle Winterthur last winter, Hands Dripping Red with Sunrise. The installation placed within the exhibition space generates an additional pictorial level and thus illuminates Karrer’s multi-layered practice.

El Orden Del Desierto – Laura Carralero Morales

8 June - 23 June
BALTSprojects, Bernerstrasse Nord 180, 8064 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

In her work Laura Carralero (1991, Havana) systematically deals with the reminiscence of spaces. The basis of her work is the precise observation of her environment and its subsequent reduction to fundamental spatial experiences. Throughout this process, the impressions Carralero captures transform into fragmentary spaces in which fiction and reality, the well-known and the unknown coexist. Laura Carralero studied art at the Instituto Superior de Artes (ISA), Havana. Since 2010 her works has been presented in various solo and group…

Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Galerie Eva Presenhuber is pleased to present a new body of work by Los Angeles-based artist Henry Taylor, in rendition of the classic portrait. This collection is a culmination of reimagined, real time, and futuristic introspection into the Black experience.

29 June - 15 July
Tart, Gotthardstrasse 54, 8002 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Brett Weir's artistic work deals with topics such as affiliation, attribution, narrative memories. Oftentimes, his works are based on personal experiences, which then become distorted and abstract. Like the time and memory, his paintings reflect constant change and flow and are ultimately a subjective portrayal of his life. Opening hours: Thu, 29 June 2017, 6 pm - 9 pm Finissage: SA, July 15, 2017, 12 - 5 pm Guided tour (artist present): SA, July 8, 2017, 4 - 5 pm

25 August - 21 September
Art Container, Park Pfingstweid, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Event Duration: 25.08.2017 - 21.09.2017 By Judith Ditzel and Cynthia Bollag The work of Judith Ditzel stems from the intense observation of phenomena such as the movements of the water or body language of dancers.

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…
