Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Our November listings reach back in time with a close look at two international surveys. First up is Imi Knoebel with 48 years of work on view at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Germany. In London, the the seminal conceptual group, Art & Lanugage, revisits Lisson Gallery for the first time in 40 years. Meanwhile in the U.S., several galleries have hung markedly interesting solo shows right before the Art Basel Miami Beach rush. Our picks for November shows are as follows:
Imi Knoebel, “Work 1966 – 2014” at Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Germany
October 25, 2014–February 15, 2015
Arguably one of the most important German artists to date, Knoebel’s show celebrates his 75th birthday and spans nearly five decades. The exhibit is not chronologically displayed, giving the audience of sense of fluid connections between early, to mid, to late career.
Guy Yanai, “Diary” at Galerie Derouillon, Paris
November 13–December 20, 2014
This is Guy Yanai’s first solo show in Paris. Yanai makes a grand entrance with paintings ranging from small to medium in size. On view are his bright, painterly, yet tightly composed, paintings of plants, boats and figures.
Clare Grill, “MARY MARY” at Diane Rosenstein Fine Arts, Los Angeles
October 18–November 29, 2014
Clare Grill’s first solo show with Diane Rosenstein proves to be a welcomed visit with painting surfaces embedded with the residue of touch, history and memory.
Nadja Frank & Jessica Segall, “Rock Shop III” at Denny Gallery, New York
October 26–December 7, 2014
Both Frank and Segall flirt with the intersection of alchemy, geology, and formal inquiry with this two-person show at Denny Gallery. Time and natural processes play a central role in this concise selection of prints, video and sculpture.
“Man & Play”, Organzied by XYZ collective at Brennan and Griffin, New York
October 26–December 21, 2014
XYZ collective is an artist run space in Tokyo. The group has organized an exciting exhibit of installation and video. The show is full of absurd, sometimes self-deprecating humor with works displayed on the floor and wall.
Farrell Brickhouse at Life on Mars, Brooklyn
November 7–December 7, 2014
Off the course of the commercial gallery scene in New York, Life on Mars Gallery in Brooklyn will host a solo show of Farrell Brickhouses’ recent work. Brickhouse works on a diminutive scale and employs painterly mark-making to create personal narratives.
“Art & Language–Nobody Spoke” at Lisson Gallery, London
November 14–January 17, 2015
The group that once spanned continents is now a collaboration between Michael Baldwin and Mel Ramsden, with participation from performers such as The Jackson Pollock Bar and Red Krayola. By now the grandfathers of a conceptual tradition, the group continues to combine text, performance, painting, music and publishing.
“Paradise Sauna” at Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Los Angeles
Tomer Aluf, Jonathan Apgar, Brian Scott Campbell, Alika Cooper, Alicia Gibson, Jennie Jieun Lee, and Ryan Schneider
November 8–December 6, 2014
TSA gallery now has many satellites across the U.S. For this group show in L.A., the gallery has culled together a group of mostly New York painters whose colorful work combines abstraction and representation.
