Ultimate Synaesthesia: Brian Eno`s exhibition 77 Million Paintings.

Review by Ellen Pearlman.

Ellen visits Brian Eno`s exhibition 77 Million Paintings and attends his talk, both at the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. These works consist of constantly evolving sound and image-scapes, in which Eno continues his exploration into light as an artist`s medium and the aesthetic possibilities of `generative software.` Both the music and the visuals in 77 Million Paintings are `generative` – a technique where the artist establishes specific parameters for the artwork to exist within, then lets a computer arrange the pieces. As Eno says, `We’re not seeing a film. There’s no beginning, there’s no progression, there’s no end, there’s no narrative, there’s no drama. In fact everything is missing that would normally be called art or entertainment.`

`Ambient pioneer, glam rocker, hit producer, multimedia artist, technological innovator, worldbeat proponent, and self-described non-musician — over the course of his long, prolific, and immensely influential career, Brian Eno was all of these things and much, much more. Determining his creative pathways with the aid of a deck of instructional, tarot-like cards called Oblique Strategies, Eno championed theory over practice, serendipity over forethought, and texture over craft; in the process, he forever altered the ways in which music is approached, composed, performed, and perceived, and everything from punk to techno to new age bears his unmistakable influence.` Summery by Jason Ankeny.

Spill >> Forward by Transnational Temps (Review).

Location: england

Review by Rob Myers.

Spill >> Forward by Transnational Temps is an `Online Exhibition` of images and other media on the theme of oil spills. With some works shown at the MediaNoche gallery in New York from July 30 – October 10, 2010. Transnational Temps is an international arts collective concerned with ecology, sustainability, and media. Since its formation in 2001 it has produced a series of critically acclaimed works and exhibitions under the banner Earth Art for the 21st Century. Working primarily from Europe and the United States, works to date have emphasized participation, tactical media, and spanning the sometimes awkward divide between activist advocacy and aesthetics.

http://www.furtherfield.org/displayreview.php?review_id=409

As media attention wanes, the impact of British Petroleum`s Deep Horizon, off-shore drilling disaster continues to unfold. Artists worldwide respond to this new ecological catastrophe in a group show organized by Transnational Temps, an arts collective exploring the interstices of art, ecology and technology. For Andy Deck, one of the founding members of Transnational Temps and the curator of the show, `After a decidedly unsuccessful round of climate negotiations in Copenhagen, the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico frames this exhibition of Earth Art for the 21st Century.`

`Now hidden from view by BP`s media campaigns and other de facto censoring actions, the images of oil-covered birds struggling to breathe and fly, oil and dispersant-coated fish, dolphins and whales washing up dead while most sink to the ocean floor, have all but vanished. Partially filling the void are the artists showing here who are recreating topographies: mapping the course of a deadly shadow over our shores and waters; and reinterpreting the sea, its rising levels and largesse, before the vicissitudes of man and nature.`

Aritists Include – Fred Adam and Ver¢nica Perales, Susanne Slavick, Jesus Andres, Gene Gort, Jeremy Newman, Graham Bell, Gavin Baily, Ume Remembers, Russell Ritell, Gratuitous Art Films, Matusa Barros, Mark Cooley, Alex George, Jessie Mann, Cristina Osuna Migueles, Sabina Ant¢n Cardenal, Fred Adam and Ver¢nica Perales, S.

Marc Da Costa interviews the ever dynamic Johannes Grenzfurthner, founder of monochrom.

12:00 am in Publication by bloc

Website: http://www.furtherfield.org/displayreview.php?review_id=408
Location: online

Outline:

Marc Da Costa interviews the ever dynamic Johannes Grenzfurthner, founder of monochrom.

This is the first of three interviews, where Grenzfurthner begins by talking about the project `Soviet Unterzoegersdorf`; the fake history of the `last existing appanage republic of the USSR`, also an adventure-game `Sector 1 & II`. We look forward to publishing part 2 & 3 of the interviews during the next few weeks.

Grenzfurthner has collaborated with groups such as ubermorgen, Billboard Liberation Front, Esel and Mego (label). Grenzfurthner writes for various online/print magazines and radio stations (e.g. ORF, Telepolis, Boing Boing). Grenzfurthner has served on a number of art juries (e.g. Steirischer Herbst, Graz). He holds a professorship for art theory and art practice at the University of Applied Sciences, Graz, Austria and is a lecturer at University of Arts and Industrial Design in Linz, Austria.

Since 1993, the Monochrom members have devoted themselves to the grey zones where systems intersect: the art (market), politics, economics, pop, gaiety, vanity, good clean fanaticism, crisis, language, culture, self-content, identity, utopia, mania and despair. The technique underlying Monochrom`s work is that of being and working in the fields of Pop/avant-garde, theory/reflection, interventionism/politics, gaiety/lust/tragedy, (self-)configuration/mystification. The project Monochrom pushes into and beyond these fields is, `networking` events, people, possibilities, material, impetus and identities.` (Zdenka Badovinac, Moderna Galerija Ljubljana)

Phil Collins/ marxism today

12:00 am in Exhibition by bloc

Date: 2 Oct 2010
Location: england

Outline:

Phil Collins` work in film, video and photography often provides a platform for the overlooked or the disenfranchised. Shining a light on what is generally perceived as the losing side in the political and social upheavals of the past two decades, marxism today is an ongoing project that began by following the fortunes of Marxist-Leninist teachers in the former Communist East Germany. Collins’ short film marxism today (prologue) (2010) mixes contemporary interviews with the ex-teachers alongside archive material, to form the centrepiece of this exhibition, which also includes a new video in which a number of concepts central to Marxist economic analysis are introduced to a new generation of students. Relocating from the start of this school year to Manchester, where Engels wrote The Condition of the Working Class in England, Collins’ project prompts a wider reflection on the city’s formative place in the history of radical thinking. Initiating a series of interactions with nearby schools and the local public, it also enquires into the continuing relevance of Marxist ideas in the present day.

Cornerhouse’s exhibition is the UK premiere of marxism today (prologue), which was previously presented to critical acclaim at the 6th Berlin Biennale of Contemporary Art.

marxism today is a collaboration between Abandon Normal Devices Festival, Berlin Biennale, Cornerhouse, Berliner Knstlerprogramm/DAAD, Film and Video Umbrella and Shady Lane Productions.

Dir Alexander Kluge, 570 mins, German with English subtitles

On 12 October 1927, after already having concluded the filming of October, his troubled dramatisation of the October Revolution, Sergej Eisenstein noted: ‘A firm decision is to film Das Kapital, with screenplay by K. Marx ´ formally, that’s the only way out.’ His plan never came to fruition. Eighty-one years later, Alexander Kluge, one of the key figures of the New German Cinema, constructs a monument to Eisenstein’s unrealised project.
