David Robilliard: The Yes No Quality of Dreams @ ICA until 15th June 2014

Life Isn't Good It's Excellent 1987TIME AND PLACE:

Doors:
11:00-18:00 (Thur until 21:00)

@ Institute of Contemporary Arts, The Mall, London SW1Y 5AH

Tickets: included in a £1 one day membership

www.ica.org.uk

The intimate paintings combine figurative elements with text taken directly from Robilliard’s own poems. Coded and knowing, his evocative prose alludes to intimate sexual encounters and passing infatuations that ultimately conjure an image of 1980s queer London.

Robilliard moved to London in 1975 and would become close friends with Gilbert & George, momentarily appearing in the film The World of Gilbert & George (1981). Throughout the 1980s Robilliard published books and postcards of his poetry, as well as contributing to publications such as The Fred, Square Peg and The Manipulator. Robilliard was described by Gilbert & George as ‘the new master of the modern person’.

Robilliard’s paintings appeared in numerous gallery exhibitions during his lifetime, as well as exhibiting in venues such as London’s Hippodrome and L’Escargot restaurant. In 1993, a major retrospective was held at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.

Haim Steinbach: Once Again The World Is Flat @ Serpentine Gallery / until 21st April 2014

Haim Steinbach - Once Again The World Is Flat at Serpentine GalleryTIME AND PLACE:

Doors:
Tue-Sun 10:00-18:00

@ Serpentine Gallery, Kensington Gardens, London W2 3XA

Free entry

www.serpentinegalleries.org

The show includes key works from his forty year career, during which he has re-defined the status of the object in art. On display are major new works, reconfigured historical installations and a number of grid-based paintings from the early 1970s.

Up until the mid-1970s, Steinbach explored minimalism’s limitations through painting calculated placements of coloured bars around monochrome squares. He then abandoned painting to create work using the material linoleum, made to resemble a diverse range of historical floor designs. By the late 1970s, Steinbach had begun to investigate spatial questions, honing in on the daily rituals of collecting and arranging objects.

Steinbach’s interest in the fundamental human practice of collecting is explored through his placing of objects from a variety of contexts on shelving units, which range from handmade constructions to modular building systems. For this exhibition Steinbach has also invited the public to participate by presenting their salt and pepper shakers in the exhibition, forming a new work for the exhibition. Each with their own history and story, the salt and pepper shakers carry meaning from a former context and, through their display, the connection between the private and the public sphere is made.
