Alfredo Jaar on group show at Cample Line in Scotland

Alfredo Jaar’s film An Introduction to a Distant World features on There’s Talk of Gold film programme at Cample Line in Scotland (17 – 19 August). Shot in Serra Pelada, a remote hand-dug opencast mine in Brazil, the 10-minute film gives a brief but powerful insight into the hazardous conditions of the mine and the arduous labour undertaken by the 80,000 prospectors who left their homes and families to look for gold.

Goodman Gallery artists on Basel Unlimited and Film Programme

Candice Breitz’s TLDR, Alfredo Jaar’s One Hundred times Nguyen and Mikhael Subotzky’s (in collaboration with Patrick Waterhouse) Ponte City will be shown at this year’s Basel Unlimited, a unique exhibition platform which forms part of the 49th Art Basel fair in Switzerland (14 – 17 June 2018). Curated by Gianni Jetzer, Unlimited transcends the typical format of an art fair by featuring immersive art installations, video projections and large-scale sculptures and paintings.

Alfredo Jaar on group exhibition at the MAK in Vienna

Jaar’s 2004 Red Vienna is mounted on a group exhibition, Post Otto Wagner: From the Postal Savings Bank to Post-Modernism, currently on view at the MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art – in Vienna (30 May – 30 September). To mark the 100th anniversary of the death of Otto Wagner (1841–1918), the exhibition investigates Wagner’s role as the “Father of Modernism”. In showcasing a variety of works in different mediums, Post Otto Wagner points out not only the context and the interaction between Wagner and other protagonists of early Modernism, but also the influence his epochal work had on his contemporaries, students, and following generations of architects and designers.

Commemorating Marx’s 200th birthday, and hosted in Pittsburgh’s SPACE Gallery, the exhibition features more than 25 works by various international artists who present a diverse range of perspectives on the theorist and his critique of inequality and capitalism, as well as Marx’s influence on political movements and regimes.
