SHORT CIRCUIT #3, OK Corral, Copenhagen

Exhibition opening – 05.05.2017, 5pm
Exhibition continues – 06 – 28.05.2017, Wednesdays to Saturdays, 1 – 5pm
Terminal 3 – OK Corral, Rolighedsvej 9, 1958 Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, Denmark

ARTISTS
Emily Mulenga, Juneau Projects and Antonio Roberts (Birmingham); The Cool Couple, Kensuke Koike and Ryts Monet (Venice); Honey Biba Beckerlee, Johan Knattrup Jensen and David Stjernholm (Copenhagen).

Short Circuit is an ambitious international touring group show devised by British Independent Curator, Aly Grimes, and consists of nine new media artists and collectives in an attempt to re-assess the archetypal framework of a travelling exhibition. It proposes a new experimental model of display realised in three different locations across Europe to include Birmingham, Venice and Copenhagen. The project’s structure aims to investigate new ways that exhibition spaces can present touring shows in the Digital Age and will manifest as a highly experimental research project susceptible to failure. It might glitch, trip, malfunction or ‘short circuit’. Read the full press release here.

2010.2015 / notes on italian videoart intende presentare attraverso una selezione di lavori video un panorama esaustivo degli autori della cosiddetta arte in movimento; operanti nella penisola. Il progetto intende colmare un vuoto istituzionale perché la rassegna è concepita come un aggiornamento delle proposte più interessanti formulate nell’ultimo quinquennio. L’iniziativa si riallaccia infatti idealmente al fortunato format videoreport italia; e ha l’obbiettivo di monitorare in tempo reale la produzione di artisti attivi delle ultime generazioni secondo una eterogenea e ricca articolazione di opere.

MLZ Art Dep
via Galatti 14 Trieste

Inaugurazione: sabato 18 marzo, ore 18.30

POIUYT è una piattaforma di ricerca sulle immagini che si propone di diffondere un’attitudine critica verso questo linguaggio chiave del mondo contemporaneo, attraverso la riflessione, il confronto collettivo e la partecipazione.

Il progetto, supportato da MLZ Art Dep di Trieste, Galleria Michela Rizzo di Venezia e Metronom di Modena, prende il via con la mostra Punto Zero. Pratiche critiche nella fotografia contemporanea italiana, che inaugura nello spazio espositivo triestino il 18 marzo alle ore 18.30.

La mostra presenta il gruppo composto dalle curatrici Francesca Lazzarini e Gaia Tedone e gli artisti Alessandro Sambini, Discipula e The Cool Couple nel momento in cui i loro interessi si intrecciano e la collaborazione ha inizio. Provenienti dal mondo della fotografia ma accomunati da una propensione a espanderne i confini, hanno dato vita alla piattaforma spinti dalla necessità di avviare una riflessione comune sul ruolo preponderante delle immagini nella società in rete e sulla loro valenza politica.
