Slow Works
Elif Erkan, Bianca Baldi, Marina Pinsky, Inga Danysz, Lennart Lahuis, Simon Starling

Slow works brings together the works of various artists dealing with migration and memory. The act of travel, and the ease with which we now can change our location, creates different possibilities for global markets and workforces, and has made it so we need to be flexible and mobile at all times. The traditional idea of traveling, wandering or migrating, sometimes without a destination in mind, has become an abstract concept in the context of time-perception and time-value. Through the materialisation of memory, either by documentation, archiving data, energy or personal memories, the consequences of this abstraction have never had as much impact as they do today. It has become a necessity that we either declare or are imposed upon by.

For the seventh time, the MMK is presenting works by the current graduates of Frankfurt's art academy, the Staatliche Hochschule fuer Bildende Kuenste - Staedelschule. In their final projects, the artists explore various media; this year the focus is on painting, film and installation. The title of the graduates' exhibition - Parked Like Serious Oysters - is based on the Manifeste Cannibale Dada by the French painter Francis Picabia (1897 - 1953). Throughout his career, Picabia consistently defied categorization in a certain artistic style. He began as an Impressionist, then turned to Cubism, processed elements of Fauvism as well as Surrealism in his works, and ultimately joined the Neo-Impressionists. He loved to play with ambiguities, and he opposed rigid conventions all his life. In his Manifeste Cannibale Dada, he called for protest against the middle-class world and its values, and against the inflexibility of the existing system. For the title of their show, the Staedelschule graduates deliberately chose a quotation that can be understood as a resolution never to allow oneself to be pigeonholed, and always to encounter the new and unknown with a firm stance. This year's show will present works by thirty-two graduates from the classes of Monika Baer, Peter Fischli, Douglas Gordon, Judith Hopf, Michael Krebber, Tobias Rehberger, Willem de Rooij and Amy Sillman.

Solo: Alone Again Or
SCHMIDT & HANDRUP is pleased to announce the first exhibition of works by Inga Danysz at the gallery. Referring to a continuous art theoretical discourse on the reading of painting and photography and their self-referentiality Danysz's recent works are dealing with Image Production, without using archetypal or figurative forms. In the exhibition the artist shows monochrome images made out of silicone, which are framed with aluminium. The slim frame shapes the delicate matter, but not only, it also works as a casting mold and thus is crucial for the product. By adding pigments into the silicone Danysz creates surfaces with an intense and deep color effect with reflections of their surroundings. Like the Silicone Paintings the steel sculptures play with the viewer's expectations. By mounting industrial parts like handles or casters to them, they appear to be functional objects, but might not meet the expectations. Danysz's works have an immediate impact on the viewer. Without giving any hints for their interpretation, they at the same time appear to be representing something. Aspects like color and form induce the viewer to determine his own interpretation. "In the end", says Danysz, "decisions about color or form are irrelevant for my work. What counts is the information that can be extracted, like a detail, taken out of the big picture."

Greene Naftali Gallery is pleased to present Freak Out. This dynamic exhibition of 34 artists offers an expansive view of contemporary practices: from sculptures whose abject aesthetic challenges commodity, to sleek animations with aggressive undertones; from painting that elegantly combines invention and an embrace of art history, to performances that occupy advanced reaches of current technology and flirt at the edge of comfort. Exhibiting artists range from recent graduates of the St├Ądelschule in Frankfurt, many of whom will be showing for the first time in New York; to Koki Tanaka, the representing artist of Japan in the 55th Venice Biennale. Also on view are works by established artists whose practices are either reflected in or denied by the emergent generation. The opening reception will feature a performance to evolve into a product by Marie Karlberg, a muse of the downtown New York scene, in collaboration with artist Lena Henke. Additional performances to take place throughout the course of the exhibition will be by Stefan Tcherepnin and Anne Imhof. Freak Out aims to demonstrate the broad array of strategies that contemporary artists develop in relation to art historical legacies, as well as the operations of the art world they inhabit.
