CARSTEN HÖLLER ‘Fara Fara’

Film screening 

Kinshasa

Democratic Republic of Congo 

A special screening on the day before New Year's Eve marks the first time that the film will be shown in Africa. Returning to the historical Place de la Victoire, where part of the film was shot, the screening is an homage to the film’s stars and a tribute to the late Papa Wemba. Included by the late curator Okwui Enwezor in the 2015 Venice Biennale, Fara Fara, 2014, meaning face to face in Lingala, is an ode to Congo’s rich musical culture and the legendary ‘father of Congolese rumba,’ Papa Wemba. The film follows the performative duel, 'fara fara', between two of the DRC’s biggest stars, Koffi Olomide and Werrason.

group exhibition 

El Espacio 23  

2270 NW 23 Street, Miami, USA 

El Espacio 23 is located in a former 28,000 square foot warehouse in the Allapattah neighborhood. Opened by Jorge M. Perez, it will not only provide space for contemporary artists to exhibit but also for the development of current working artists with three apartments designed as residencies for artists and curators. The inaugural exhibition, ‘Time for Change: Art and Social Unrest in the Jorge M. Pérez Collection’, focuses on the notion of art and the artist as an agent for social change that can explore the conflicts and contradictions of contemporary society. An interest in the marginalized aspects of society and history ties together the nearly 100 works by over 80 artists including Michelangelo Pistoletto, Jonathas De Andrade, Carlos Garaicoa and Ai Weiwei.

LEANDRO ERLICH ‘Order of Importance’

site-specific installation 

Ocean front at Lincoln Road 

Miami Beach, USA

During Miami Art Week 2019, Order of Importance comes to South Beach; a monumental site-specific installation that consists of 66 life-size replicas of cars and trucks that will be left to slowly degrade for the duration of the 15-day exhibition. The sand manifestations of vehicles are frozen in time and represent an immoveable modernity that makes a stark contrast with the natural, changeable and ultimately temporary material with which they are made.

LEANDRO ERLICH ‘The Heart of Water’

Qattara Oasis 

Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, UAE 

www.abudhabiart.ae

Abu Dhabi Art invites three established and well-known artists to create site-specific works in historic sites in Al Ain, one of them being Leandro Erlich who brings his work Nest, a cylindrical structure made with local stone that contains the glass sculpture of a cloud, to Abu Dhabi. This time taking inspiration from the Beehive Tombs of Jebel Hafeet while maintaining the ethereal, ineffable and immaterial sensation of a cloud, the work is a reminder of the sacred beyond the particularities of faith and time.

SUN YUAN & PENG YU ‘The World is a Fine Place for You to Fight for’

solo show

MACRO ASILO

Via Nazionale 194, Roma, Italy

An installation that includes 15 taxidermy animals including wild boar and lions and that was originally exhibited at Galleria Continua San Gimignano with actors who intermittently changed the contents of the installation from animals to metal kitchen cabinets. At Macro Asilo the public are invited on Sunday 1 December 2019 to bring a book to read in the chair in the center of the installation. The immense power of the stationary animals evoke an acute awareness of being a temporary protagonist within the fantastical world the installation creates.

24/11/2019 - 6pm Auditorium MACRO ASILO

Talk: '2003/2019 Le opere oltre il contesto

This talk will approach and discuss the importance of the experimental nature of contemporary art in Sun Yuan & Peng Yu’s projects from 2003 to 2019. The two artists recount their attempt to escape from a specific context in order to revive their expressive forms and methodologies that in turn enriches the sensory perception of their art, focusing on the subversion of the rules of reality and the “rules” of art itself.
