Looking for the Moment Is Eternity in German Abstraction Past and Present at the QG Gallery Belgium: Open Till December 07

 

 

 

|| Monday: September 16: 2019 || ά. The Moment Is Eternity: German Abstraction: Past and Present is an Exhibition of renowned artists, who all emerged after the World War II to reshape German Art. The QG Gallery aims to give a new perspective on the history of the 20th and 21st century in Germany by showing works of a complete generation of artists.

In reaction to the Nazi’s censorship and the Degenerate Art Exhibition, 1937, Munich, they contributed to the new abstraction by creating some of the most distinctive experimental art of this time. While colour and shape are the main focus of Josef Albers with his Homage to the Square series and Georg Karl Pfahler’s Colour Field masterpieces, Hans Hartung and Gerhard Richter chose neutral tones for their lyrical abstractions.

More recently, Katharina Grosse used compressed-spray colour for her vibrant colourful installations but, also, for her paper work presented in this Exhibition.

On the other hand, Imi Knoebel and Günther Förg picked metal and wood as visible materials for their paintings. Their radical ideas are highlighted here: Förg’s painting on lead and Knoebel’s monochrome on shaped wood. While Ulrich Rückriem’s monumental stone sculpture sits outside, in the garden, Gerhard Von Graevenitz’s kinetic sculpture hangs inside the space, in a constant rotation.

The Exhibition’s title is taken from one of Ulrich Rückriem’s quote, defining his idea of making sculpture as a liberation process: ‘and the moment of doing it as eternity’. In this Exhibition, each artist had their moment, creating artworks of real historical significance, which inspired future artists and movements.

The Exhibition will run through December 07, 2019. The Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 11:00 to 18:00 and by appointment. QG Gallery, Rue de la Concorde 62, Ixelles 1050, Belgium:::ω.

Rambrandt’s Light at the Dulwich Picture Gallery: October 04-February 02: 2020

 

 

|| Sunday: July 14: 2019 || ά. In autumn 2019 Dulwich Picture Gallery will mark the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death, 1669, with Rembrandt’s Light, a major Exhibition, exploring the artist’s mastery of light through 35 of his greatest paintings, etchings and drawings. The Exhibition will take place between October 04, 2019 and February 02, 2020.

London’s moment in the ‘Year of Rembrandt’ will bring together major international loans, including, The Pilgrims at Emmaus, 1648, Musée du Louvre, Paris and, shown for the first time ever in the UK, Philemon and Baucis, 1658, National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, Tobit and Anna with the Kid, 1645 and The Dream of Joseph, 1645, Gemäldegalerie, Berlin.

Arranged thematically, the Exhibition will trace Rembrandt’s mastery of light and shadow, revealing how he used both for dramatic effect, from evoking different moods in religious and mythological stories, to depicting raw human emotion in the subjects he knew well. It will focus on Rembrandt’s critical middle period of 1639-1658 when he lived in his dream house on the Breestraat in central Amsterdam. The large-scale windows of this spacious home, today The Rembrandt House Museum, gave him access to the ideal light for creating art.

The Exhibition will showcase a new LED Bluetooth lighting system at the Gallery and leading cinematographer Mr Peter Suschitzky, famed for Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back; The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Mars Attacks!, will work with the curators to devise an atmospheric visitor experience.

Through carefully constructed lighting and innovative design, the Exhibition spaces will reflect the variety of Rembrandt’s work, from high-drama and theatricality to the contemplative and spiritual. This approach takes inspiration from Rembrandt’s own words in a letter of 1639, when he cautioned a new owner of one of his paintings to: ‘hang this piece in a strong light and where one can stand at a distance, so it will sparkle at its best’.

The Exhibition will begin by addressing the artist’s sophisticated control of light to convey motion and emotion. Key paintings will demonstrate the influence of contemporary theatre on Rembrandt’s method, including, the The Denial of St Peter, 1660, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, where multiple moments of the story are told within a single scene and The Woman Taken in Adultery, 1644, The National Gallery, London, where the figures inhabit the temple setting, as, though, they were actors on a stage 

‘Manipulating Light’, the second section of the show, will transport visitors to Rembrandt’s workshop, as witnessed in his drawing The Artist’s Studio, c.1659, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. The means by which Rembrandt evoked day and night will be explored in etchings from the Rembrandt House Museum, including, Student at a Table by Candlelight, c.1642 and Woman with an Arrow c.1661, as well as, his only surviving nocturnal painting, Landscape with the Rest on the flight into Egypt, 1647, National Gallery of Ireland.

The penultimate section, ‘The Meditative Mood’, will focus on Rembrandt’s religious and intellectual works. Rembrandt’s ability to create multiple layers of meaning and subtle shifts in mood made his works enduringly popular as tools for private contemplation. In Christ and St Mary Magdalen at the Tomb, 1638, Royal Collection Trust, the dawn breaking over Jerusalem echoes the dawning recognition between the characters in the scene.

The Exhibition will culminate with a selection of compelling figurative paintings, including, the Gallery’s Girl at a Window, 1645, which will be displayed for the first time alongside A Woman in Bed, c. 1645-6, National Museums Scotland and A Woman Bathing in a Stream, 1654, National Gallery, London.

Rembrandt’s Light will be the first exhibition to be curated by Ms Jennifer Scott since becoming Director of Dulwich Picture Gallery in 2017 and is co-curated by the Gallery’s Assistant Curator, Ms Helen Hillyard. The accompanying book, Rembrandt’s Light, by Ms Jennifer Scott and Ms Helen Hillyard, is published by Philip Wilson Publishers and includes essays by the curators and by Mr David de Witt and Ms Franziska Gottwald and features an interview with Cinematographer Mr Peter Suschitzky.

Ms Jennifer Scott, the Sackler Director of Dulwich Picture Gallery, said, “Over 200 years ago, Sir John Soane revolutionised architecture with his innovative top-lit design for Dulwich Picture Gallery. Taking inspiration from Soane’s ambition to create the ideal conditions for viewing paintings, we are thrilled to present a fresh approach to Rembrandt, focusing on the 19 years when he had access to the ideal light for creating art.

Our own remarkable ‘Girl at a Window’ will play a starring role alongside masterpieces from some of the world’s other great art collections. Visitors familiar with the Dutch master of light should prepare to fall in love with Rembrandt all over again and new audiences will find an immersive way-in to an artist who, had he been alive today, would have given film-makers a run for their money.”

Mr Peter Suschitzky said, “I have been inspired by the work of the greatest Old Masters throughout my life, so to have the opportunity to work with some of Rembrandt’s finest paintings is hugely exciting. Rembrandt seems to me to have been striving to find a universal truth in the human condition and used light to create motion and emotion. This parallels cinematography, where sculpting light and directing the gaze of the viewer to the desired place in an image is essential for powerful storytelling.”

Therefore, when presented with the chance to support the Your Stratford Stage event series we were keen to get involved.’’

Mr Alistair Spalding, the Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Sadler’s Wells, said, ‘’As we look forward to opening the doors of our new theatre in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in 2022, I’m delighted to be joining forces with our future neighbours and friends at East London Dance and Studio Wayne McGregor to share inspiring dance with local audiences and communities in Stratford.
