Objects and photographs (exhibition from 5 to 24 May 2017) As if chance had had his hand in the work some compositions by Christof Vetsch. They are a stage for quite simple things, rust stains, foundry, a filed garment, flowers, mirrors and a piece of ginger. A part of a church bench, but also of objects, which one can not really recognize. In relation to others, they are brought to images that evoke associations or are simply a lure to…

Eventdauer: 19.05.2017 - 15.06.2017 By Michele D'Ariano Simionato and Andy Storchenegger HIDDEN FACES works with an original Swiss theme, with centuries-old customs, and at the same time can be applied intensively to the foreign people who are seeking asylum here.

CV – Michael Riedel

20 May - 13 August
Kunsthalle Zürich, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Opening: Friday, May 19, 2017 German Artist Michael Riedel (*1972) has created a body of work that is readily misunderstood and can’t easily be compared with any other. Similar to a Doubling Charm, by which objects replicate by the slightest touch, starting a chain-reaction of reentries, Riedel’s artworks attest to an ongoing process of replication within the art system. His exhibition CV at Kunsthalle Zürich centers around the Curriculum Vitae or résumé, this obsessively stylized form of human measurement for…

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…

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…
