Stinking Dawn is a walk-in stage design that functions as a changing film setting. Monumental modular architecture sets the location for a film by Gelatin and Liam Gillick that will be shot in situ. Directed by Gillick and based on his script, Gelatin will play the leading roles in this experimental film that explores the limits of human tolerance in the face of oppression, political crises and excessive self-deception.
An exhibition of the Kunsthalle Wien in context of the VIENNA BIENNALE FOR CHANGE 2019 In any society, one fundamental field in which gender is expressed is technology. Technical skills and domains of expertise appear to be divided between the sexes, shaping masculinities and femininities.
An artistic exploration by Jeremias Altmann and Andreas Tanzer.
Sean Scully is known above all for his highly expressive abstract paintings of colorful stripes or rectangles. But it is an entirely new side of this artist that comes to light in a work series being given its first-ever presentation by the Albertina Museum. The series Eleuthera from the years 2015-2017 revolves around a very private subject: these 23 large-format oil paintings show Scully’s eight-year-old son Oisín playing at the beach on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. This exhibition shows all of these oil paintings by Scully as well as smaller pastels, drawings, and photographic works.

Dorit Margreiter’s artistic interest is in the connections between visual systems and spatial structures and the consequences for our everyday lives and societies. The focus is on modern and contemporary architecture and forms of media representation. For her solo show at mumok Dorit Margreiter will transform the complete exhibition gallery into an artistic installation including the display and exhibition architecture, films, mobiles, and photographs.
Of all the art movements of the 1950s and 1960s, op art has hitherto received the least attention. Often it is denigrated as being too spectacular and superficial. This is a misconception—this art sharpens our awareness of the ambiguity of appearances and illustrates the impossibility of grasping “reality.” Under the title Vertigo, mumok presents a deceptive game of the senses, presenting a wide spectrum ranging from panel paintings, reliefs, and objects to installations and experiential spaces, to film and computer-generated art.
Sketches and studies in oils hold a special appeal due to their immediacy and often unorthodox subject matter and individuality. Mostly on a small scale, they originated as drafts for potential patrons, evolving during the course of the nineteenth century into works of art in their own right. The Belvedere is dedicating an IN-SIGHT exhibition to this unique art form.
Caroline Achaintre is presenting new work in a site-specific exhibition at the Belvedere 21. This solo show provides an insight into the wide-ranging oeuvre of the Franco-German artist who uses traditional techniques like tapestry, drawing and ceramic in an unconventional way.
