  1. Phillip Lai at Edouard Malingue Gallery Hong Kong
    In the Half Life, the first solo exhibition in Asia of Phillip Lai (b. 1969 Malaysia/UK) at Edouard Malingue Gallery, Hong Kong is a group of new works by the artist whose gestures are abstractly contained whilst also immediately assimilated via a highly familiar lexicon of the daily. The imprint of domesticity, public environments and the industrial are variously present both in the shape the work takes as well as its surfaces and how the materials have been handled. In some cases the clear presence of the manual prompts an exaggerated visual experience of them, and in others it is conversely the apparent removal of the hand that does this.
  2. Border Crossings issue 145
    In this issue of Border Crossings women feature large, taking over the lion’s share of the magazine. In our interviews, Border Crossings takes an in-depth look at California-based American artist Nancy Rubins. For over forty years, Rubins’ work has contained an element of the unpredictable as she has transformed industrial materials such as mattresses, television sets, RV campers and boat parts into large-scale installations.

  6. Vistamarestudio exhibition space opens in Milan with Tom Friedman
    Vistamarestudio, a new exhibition space in Milan conceived by Lodovica Busiri Vici and Benedetta Spalletti, is pleased to present as its first show the exhibition Ghosts and UFOs; Projections for Well-Lit Spaces by Tom Friedman. Designed by the New York studio Space4Architecture (S4A), the new gallery space is deliberately neutral, characterized by an architecture of great rigour and with no obstructed sightlines, which makes the artworks central.
  7. Bernard Frize at Dirimart
    Dirimart is pleased to host Bernard Frize’s first solo exhibition in Istanbul comprised of new works for this show. Since the late 1970s, Frize has been investigating on the materiality of the medium to further develop his method. Free of personal expression, any trace of subjectivity, he keeps generating predetermined geometrical motifs or patterns. “Feelings and emotions do not belong here,” says the artist. What matters for him is the act of painting; he establishes simple rules that he applies to certain colors within a frame of painting actions.
  8. Tomasz Kowalski: Proto Weather at Tim Van Laere Gallery
    Tim Van Laere Gallery is pleased to announce Proto-Weather, the fourth solo show of Tomasz Kowalski at the gallery. The exhibition features 12 paintings on canvas and a large selection of works on paper. Tomasz Kowalski is a key figure in emerging Polish painting today. His influences owe deep gratitude to the tradition of German Expressionism, Outsider art and esotericism along with Surrealism. The influence of psychedelia and Postmodern American literature feature prominently in his work.
  9. Everything #7 book launch
    To coincide with the 2018 Sydney Biennale, and in celebration of a record-breaking ten month residence at the Museum of Old and New Art in Australia (Mona), The Museum of Everything is proud to announce the release of its latest publication, Everything #7.

  10. Peter Morrens at Kristof De Clercq gallery
    The second solo exhibition by Peter Morrens (1965, lives and works in Antwerp) opens at Kristof De Clercq gallery on Sunday, March 18, 2018. Morrens is working on a multi-faceted oeuvre, comprising of drawings, photographs, installations and performances, through which he gives form to his fascinations for sensuality, the experience of time, sexuality, destruction, fetishism, unrest, rhythm, reversal, and transgression. Ambiguity, absurdity, but also confused and confusing language and an inappropriate sense of humour are his key sources. The exhibition at Kristof De Clercq gallery takes on the form of an all-over installation, as was also the case with his solo show in 2014.
