Aber ebenso verehrt wie die Promis wurden in diesem Jahr die Hunde, mindestens 30 Werke in Skulptur und Malerei waren auf der Art Basel vertreten, auf der Scope gönnte sich ein kleiner vermenschlichter Mops (von Shezad Dawood) zur Feier des Tages eine ordentliche Zigarre gönnt (bei Riccardo Crespi aus Mailand). - (welt.de - Wie kann man Würschtl mit Kunst vergleichen? )
Ours is a culture defined by marketing and consumption, by shopping malls as community meeting places and media saturated with product advertising. Even one of our founding fathers—Thomas Jefferson—was a compulsive shopper. Is this part of the American Way? Our lives are bracketed with purchases, from bassinets to caskets. Our visual landscape is studded with logos, brand names and billboards—inducements to acquire commodities. Branded and On Display examines the work of artists who explore the strategies of branding and retail presentation as they respond, with both humor and criticism, to the pervasive marketing that colors our lives and leisure time. The exhibition urges us to "re-view" consumer culture with an appraising eye and increased awareness.
Included are works by Conrad Bakker, Zhao Bandi, Amy Barkow, Ashley Bickerton, Michael Blum, Louis Cameron, Diller + Scofidio, Terence Gower, Laurie Hogin, Clay Ketter, Donna Nield, Ryan McGinness, Amelia Moore, Phillipe Parreno/ Pierre Huyghe, Haim Steinbach, Tempi & Wolf, Yuken Teruya, Hank Willis Thomas, Brian Ulrich, Siebren Versteeg, Andy Warhol. These artists lead us to look at how frequently we are scanned each day and at how advertising and display strategies shape our thinking, our impulses and our desires.Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art - Branded and On Display

Meet Me Around the Corner - Works from the Astrup Fearnley Collection 14.06 - 31.08.2008
Matthew Barney, Frank Benson, Mike Bouchet, Lizzi Bougatsos, Paul Chan, Dan Colen, Trisha Donnelly, Gardar Eide Einarsson, Gobert Gober, Nan Goldin, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Hannah Greely, Taft Green, Karl Haendel, Corin Hewitt, Damien Hirst, Christian Holstad, Matt Johnson, Mike Kelley, Terence Koh, Jeff Koons, Louise Lawler, Sherrie Levine, Klara Lidén, Nate Lowman, Jason Meadows, Bruce Nauman, Cady Noland, Seth Price, Richard Prince, Adam Putnam, Charles Ray, Jason Rhoades, Cristina Lei Rodriguez, Matthew Ronay, Tom Sachs, Cindy Sherman, Josh Smith, Christopher Wool.
The Astrup Fearnley Collection has developed into one of Scandinavia’s finest collections of international contemporary art. In recent years it has acquired a number of key works by American artists from 1980 to today. On the museum’s ground floor you can experience works by Jeff Koons, Cindy Sherman, Richard Prince, Bruce Nauman and others who established their artistic practice in the 1980s and ‘90s. On the lower level we present new acquisitions by younger artists, chiefly Americans, who have entered the international art scene since 2000.
The lower level exhibition features artists who express themselves through diverse media such as sculpture, drawing, video, painting and photography. These artists often take their point of departure in existing visual material, yet in addition to appropriating pictures from mass media and consumer society, they personally transform their materials and means. Through collages, assemblages and altered readymades, the artists create stories. The impulse behind a work may be something surreal and surprising, or mysterious and immaterial. In addition, we find works expressing strong political engagement. The artists work with impressions from contemporary culture such as cartoon series and graffiti, yet when doing so, also engage with art historical traditions such as Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Neorealism, Pop Art or 1960s Performance Art. The exhibition does not showcase a specific generation or artist group, yet when viewed as a whole, it is dominated by figurative, object-based and narrative artworks.
The exhibition title Meet Me Around the Corner is borrowed from Dan Colen’s eponymously titled painting. The letters are painted with big and abrupt movements reminiscent of spontaneous, anonymous messages in the urban landscape. With this title, we invite visitors to engage in dialogue with the artworks, and hope the exhibition will open up for enlightening and stimulating experiences. Discussions of several works are recorded on sound files that are available via mobile telephone.

Call it what you like! COLLECTION RIK REINKING
From the 14th of June until the 28th of September 2008 the audience at The Art Centre Silkeborg Bad will be able to gain an insight into a highly interesting period in modern and contemporary art. The Art Centre Silkeborg Bad has succeeded in borrowing more that 60 works of art by internationally acclaimed artists from a large German private collection. The exhibition offers a great opportunity for getting some idea of pivotal aspects of contemporary art.
In the exhibition entitled Call it what you like! COLLECTION RIK REINKING, the audience will be able to experience works of art which challenge the prevailing conception of art, from mid-June and three-four months onwards. The selection of works of art for the exhibition takes as its' starting point Conceptual Art of the 1960's and -70's, Minimalism and Pop Art. All of these categories are well represented in Rik Reinking's collection.
The collector, the 32 years old Rik Reinking, has for some time now collaborated closely with employees at The Art Centre Silkeborg Bad in making the exhibition a interesting platform for the audience's encounter with the forms of expression of contemporary art. There will be made good use of the exhibition areas.
Reinking's motive for building a significant international collection is his passionate interest in contemporary art and in communicating art.
The exhibitions includes works of art by, among others: Till F.E. Haupt (DE), Mirko Reisser alias DAIM (DE), Rainer Splitt (DE), Banksy, (UK), ZEVS (FR), Otavio og Gustavo Pandolfo alias Os Gemeos (BRA), Santiago Sierra (ESP), Katsuhiro Saiki (JP), Liam Gillick (GB), Barbara Kruger (USA), Toshiya Kobayashi (JP), Tony Ousler (USA) and Nan Goldin (USA).
"L’Arte della Comunicazione
Mostra collettiva contemporanea
L’Associazione Modart organizza con il patrocinio del Comune di Milano una mostra dedicata al tema della comunicazione.
Curata da Giulio Residori, la mostra riunisce 33 pittori prevalentemente giovani, ognuno dei quali ha creato un’opera sull’argomento specifico interpretandolo con creazioni figurative o astratte, con tecniche differenti e valenze diverse.
L’avvento delle nuove tecnologie ha cambiato profondamente le modalita' della comunicazione e le opere presenti in mostra colgono l’essenza di questo nuovo mondo supertecnologico
I quattro livelli della Casa del Pane, di per se' un gioiello architettonico, concedono ai lavori la miglior location possibile.

Multitasking - Synchronität als kulturelle Praxis
15. Juni – 27. Juli 2008
Beteiligte KünstlerInnen: Cory Arcangel, Peter Fischli /David Weiss, Irène Hug, Bernadette Klausberger/Jana Krause/Hannah Stracke, Constantin Luser, Warren Neidich, Yves Netzhammer, Stefan Panhans, Adrian Piper, Bill Shackelford, Lars Siltberg, Lars Tunbjörk, Marius Watz / Christine Wolfe.
»Multitasking« beschäftigt sich mit dem Phänomen, dass Menschen zunehmend häufiger mehrere Dinge gleichzeitig tun. Diese Verhaltensweise ist oft scharfer Kritik ausgesetzt und wird eher als notwendiges Übel, denn als erstrebenswerter Zustand betrachtet. Andererseits finden sich Indizien für eine steigende Attraktivität und Popularität von Multitasking als Lifestyle. Die ausgestellten Werke machen die tiefgreifenden Veränderungen in Ökonomie, Medien und Gesellschaft erfahrbar.
Dieses Projekt basiert auf einer Ausstellung der Neuen Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst, Berlin 2007

Inflated Steel & Paint - 32.0" h X 32.0" w
Off the Wall is an exhibition featuring the works of artists from Cuba, Argentina, Jamaica and the United States. From Cuba we are exhibiting works by Carlos Estevez, Los Carpinteros, Mendive and Carlos Gonzalez among others; from Argentina works by Hernan Dompe, Dora Isdatne, Nora Correas, Jose Benito and Leon Ferrari; from Jamaica Gene Pearson and Colin Garland; and from the United States William Cannings.
The range of materials varies from the traditional wood sculpture, clay, bronze, inflated steel to innovative mixed media. The variety of the pieces is an attempt to show the different aspects addressed by the contemporary sculptors.
In the project room we will be presenting for the very fist time in Miami the work of the Cuban sculptor Carlos Enrique Pardo. Following the tradition started by Duchamp many years ago Carlos Enrique is working from the idea of the ready made object. What seems at the first glance as an appropriation is really his point of departure.
