Laia Abril | FOAM

FOAM Amsterdam

Laia Abril

Du 6 novembre 2020 au 10 janvier 2021

Laia Abril’s On Rape exhibition continues its roaming at the Fotografiemuseum in Amsterdam from November 6 to January 10. In March 2020, Laia Abril won the fourteenth Foam Paul Huf Award for her long-term project A History of Misogyny.

Laia Abril’s exhibition On Rape is the second chapter of her project A History of Misogyny. It expands her ongoing visual archive of the systemic control of women’s bodies across time and cultures.

“By scrutinizing, conceptualizing and visualizing diverse miscarriages of justice across historical regulations, toxic dynamics and victims’ testimonies, the project aims to call out the institutional rape culture prevalent in societies around de world. I’m looking at rape by exploring how concepts of myths, power, and law, relate to the constructions of the notion of masculinity and sexual violence.”

Géométries de l’invisible

Espace de l'Art concret, Château de Mouans

Art orienté objet

From September 27th 2020 to January 3rd 2021

Geometry and abstraction play a fundamental role in contemporary art – and the whole history of art from when the very first geometric lines appeared in caves with prehistoric drawings to the very latest works which draw inspiration from this form of abstract understatement.

What is the basis for this phenomenon and what is the reality behind it?

What is the invisible common thread linking geometry and abstraction across the ages and across cultures and forms of expression?

MAMCO Genève

Olivier Mosset

Exhibition from February 25th to december 6th 2020

Occupying virtually all the museum , MAMCO’s retrospective reviews his career over almost 60 years, from the early experiments of the 1960s to his monumental recent works, via the painter’s reflections on artistic appropriation, monochrome painting, and shaped canvases.

At the same time, several rooms are devoted to movements and artists with whom Mosset was or remains closely associated, allowing us to consider his work in a variety of different contexts. In addition to a section devoted to the activities led with Buren, Parmentier, and Toroni, the exhibition features works by Nouveaux Réalistes (notably Jean Tinguely and Daniel Spoerri, for whom Mosset worked as an assistant), experimental film-makers’ collective Zanzibar (with whom Mosset directed, acted in and produced a number of films), American “Radical painting” of the 1970s and 1980s (including Marcia Hafif and Joseph Marioni) and artists such as Sherrie Levine, Steven Parrino, Cady Noland, John Armleder, and Sylvie Fleury, with whom he has maintained a regular dialogue.

The exhibition is organized by Paul Bernard and Lionel Bovier.
