Over the weekend, Ai Weiwei unveiled a provocative new installation on the facade of Palazzo Strozzi in Florence which continues his commentary on the current refugee crisis in Europe. Entitled Reframe, the Chinese artist's latest public work will features 22 life rafts attached to the historic building's windows, a striking critique of the handling of the humanitarian crisis. Inside, an exhibition entitled Libero will be Italy’s first major retrospective of the dissident - artist's work including "key monumental installations, sculptures and objects, as well as videos and photography series produced throughout his career."

Previews: Martin Wittfooth – “Archaic Revival” @ Corey Helford Gallery http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/09/previews-martin-wittfooth-archaic-revival-corey-helford-gallery/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/09/previews-martin-wittfooth-archaic-revival-corey-helford-gallery/#comments Sun, 25 Sep 2016 01:42:57 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=312224 14258312_10154530529446489_788714318827800483_o

On the 1st of October, Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles will be opening a new solo from Martin Wittfooth (interviewed) entitled Archaic Revival. The new series of paintings, some large-scale, continue to examine humans and their impact on the environment thru the lens of his majestic animal subjects. Also included in the exhibition from the New York-based artist will be his first sculptures in bronze, limited edition versions of his unique artistic vision. In discussing his new work, Wittfooth states title of the show is  "borrowed from late philosopher, author and ethnobotanist Terence McKe nna, who explored the notion that Western culture and society has become sick, and is undergoing a healing process by a reversion to archaic values and behaviors. In my latest series of paintings and sculptures I aim to pay tribute to this idea, that in our species' long collective march out of the proverbial garden toward greater technological complexity and the effects this process has and will have on the world around us, it is in the past that we may truly see ourselves reflected back at us as we really are: nature itself. McKenna argued that this return toward the archaic began in earnest in the troubled 20 th Century via an interest in the subconscious in the works of Freud and Jung, primitivism, surrealism and abstraction in art and music, and culminated in the psychedelic revolution of the 1960s, a revolution that was suppressed to a large degree until the dawn of the 21 st Century. The new series seeks to contribute to this revitalized conversation: our era is riddled with turmoil and uncertainty stemming from our dominion rather than stewardship of the world that we inhabit. Perhaps our salvation lies in the recognition that beneath the veneer of our culture we are the very same nature that we have pushed to the margins." Discuss Martin Wittfooth here.

Showing: Todd James – “We Are One” @ Galería Javier López http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/09/showing-todd-james-we-are-one-galeria-javier-lopez/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/09/showing-todd-james-we-are-one-galeria-javier-lopez/#comments Sat, 24 Sep 2016 03:40:29 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=312181 todd-james-we-are-one-galeria-javier-lopez-madrid-1

On the 15th of September, Galería Javier López & Fer Francés opened a new show by Todd James entitled We Are One. For his third show in six years with the Madrid gallery, the NYC-based artist painted a new body of work that reflect his views of the times we live in. The title of the show is the American artist's sarcastic commentary about the current state of the world - while the majority of people support peace, unity and tolerance, the world is full of terrorism, wars, injustice and wrongdoing. Everything from popular culture to global politics is twisted upside down, and James' works show this through his flat & colorful images. Stepping closer to abstraction, the new pieces are even looser in representation and richer in narrative & detail. The show includes some 10 large canvases, one large piece on paper, and two smaller studies on paper and will stay on view until November 2nd. Discuss Todd “REAS” James here.]]>

Streets: MTO // Art United Us (Kiev) http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/09/streets-mto-art-united-us-kiev/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/09/streets-mto-art-united-us-kiev/#comments Fri, 23 Sep 2016 14:21:38 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=312166 mto5

A few weeks ago, MTO visited the Ukrainian capital to take part in the ongoing Art United Us (see our coverage of other murals) project curated by Iryna Kanishcheva and Geo Leros. During his stay, he painted a large elaborate mural inspired by the unprecedented hack of Ukraine’s power grid last December. With his recent work, the French artist is including the events from the cyber world into his imagery while creating sort of a reality glitch. This particular piece was his visual representation of the hacker attack that left 230,000 Ukrainian residents in the dark. The well prepared and carefully planned assault by the skilled and stealthy figures resulted in a synchronized attack that set an ominous precedent for the safety and security of power grids everywhere. Titled From Russia With Love, the digital love-cannonball sent from Moscow (Russia) to Kiev (Ukraine) represents the love / hate relationship between the two countries, but also serves as a reminder of our dependence on electricity and other power sources. In order to depict the cyber world and represent the strength of this attack, MTO painted over 2,000 fake tiles and fake windows creating an illusion, sort of virtual reality background for his main image.]]>

Streets: Crystal Wagner // UNIQA Art Lodz (Poland) http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/09/streets-crystal-wagner-uniqa-art-lodz-poland/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/09/streets-crystal-wagner-uniqa-art-lodz-poland/#comments Wed, 21 Sep 2016 06:12:59 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=312110 14362728_1601969336763250_207342509500651957_o

Following up on an amazing collaboration between Etam Cru and Robert Proch in Poland, Crystal Wagner was the next artist invited in by UNIQA Art Lodz to beautify the city. The new installation (created from wire armature, rip-stop water proof and UV protective nylon, cable ties) for the urban art program curated by Michał Bieżyński (of Lodz Murals) is entitled Hyperbolic and looks like it's devouring the building. The site specific installation is located on Piotrkowska Street (the city center of Lodz) and will be on view for at least three months. Wagner further adds -  “Hyperbolic is a wild exterior growth that wraps around the art nouveau façade of a 100 year old building in Lodz, Poland. I am interested in the dialog between architecture and organic forms and structures found in nature. It is a hybrid born of the modern and exotic landscapes that investigates through juxtaposition and context our relationship with our cultivated spaces/structures and our relationship with the natural world" Discuss Crystal Wagner here.]]>

Upcoming: Swoon – “Thalassa” @ Detroit Institute of Arts http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/09/upcoming-swoon-thalassa-detroit-institute-of-arts/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2016/09/upcoming-swoon-thalassa-detroit-institute-of-arts/#comments Wed, 21 Sep 2016 05:40:53 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=312102 14449064_1463777273639259_799162248996048251_n

Starting on September 24th, the Detroit Institute of Arts will unveil an installation from Swoon (interviewed) entitled Thalassa. The 20-foot tall, 400-pound sculptural piece named after the Greek goddess of the sea - originally displayed in New Orleans (covered) - will be adapted for DIA's Great Hall. The massive work from the American artist will be suspended from the ceiling and will coincide with a mural project in Detroit’s Jefferson-Chalmers district. Swoon further adds - "I have a long love of Detroit, having worked in the city at various times over the years with the Allied Media Conference, and the Power House Project in Hamtramck. Detroit and its powerful history have always been an inspiration, not to mention Tyree Guyton's Heidelberg Project being a long-standing beacon for anyone who is interested in how art can transform community. I'm excited to return." Photo credit: Sal Rodriguez (via Library Street Collective). Discuss Swoon here.]]>
