Berlin

In film production, using local talent implies that a cast from the immediate area makes for the most authentic performances. At the same time, the term suggests a limitation of what’s available on a particular set. We are all on a limited set at the moment because no one is allowed to travel, and no one can escape the consequences of this withdrawal. What do the participating artists have in common? They all live in Berlin, still a city of artists, and the selected works all point indirectly at the repercussions of our current situation.

While Hanne Darboven and Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt lived on different sides of the wall in a divided Germany and were unaware of each other’s practice, their juxtaposition in this show makes for a surprising dialogue—not only between their works, but also their exchanges among an international network of artists. The exhibition brings together works and material from the 1970s and early 1980s.

John Baldessari
The Space Between
Fall 2020
Los Angeles

The exhibition presents John Baldessari’s final series of thirty paintings,The Space Between (2019), that demonstrate the artist’s characteristic combining of text and image. Through spatial overlays and excisions, the works at once deflect and direct our attention, while also betraying the processes by which we encode and decode the world around us. Simultaneously banal, surprising, and poignant, Baldessari’s last works beautifully encapsulate the thrust of his artistic project as a whole: To explore the amorphous spaces between things, people and ideas.
