    Exhibitions and the World at Large

    On Friday 3 April 2009 Afterall and TrAIN will present ‘Exhibitions and the World at Large’, a public symposium at Tate Britain, London, examining the contemporary art exhibition in a global context. The symposium will consider three case studies from 1989, a pivotal year for both art and politics: ‘Magiciens de la Terre’ at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, ‘The Other Story’ at the Hayward Gallery, London, and the third Bienal de La Habana. The event will open with a keynote presentation by Sarat Maharaj and other speakers will include Thomas Boutoux, Jean Fisher, Cuauhtémoc Medina and Gerardo Mosquera.

    Cinthia Marcelle at Gasworks and TrAIN

    TrAIN/Gasworks artist in residence Cinthia Marcelle is developing a new installation for the Foyer Space of Camberwell College of Arts. This will be brought together with existing video work in an exhibition opening on Friday 27th March. Marcelle’s practice extends from drawing and collage to city-scale interventions. She often uses video to capture a poetic, formal perspective of the events that she orchestrates. Through different media Marcelle’s work assembles connections or creates meaningful coincidences; she uses both form and humor to exaggerate links that could occur by accident or association in everyday life, and this interest in synchronicity is explored in the ongoing series entitled Unus Mundus (“One World”).

  • Introduction

    Criteria of Beauty at Aqffin Gallery

    Does beauty matter?
    “Japanese beauty” – What is it?
    What do Soetsu Yanagi’s ‘Criteria of Beauty’ mean to Japanese artists that are based in the UK?

    A Closing Party will be held at the Aqffin Gallery on Thursday 5th February, 7-9pm. Come to see the art works of exquisite beauty and refresh yourself with some beer and Japanese snacks. Then, you can stroll around the East End and enjoy the late openings in other galleries – because it is First Thursday – the day to see art at night in this part of London. Please visit the First Thursdays website for more details.

    Karolin Meunier at TrAIN

    Karolin Meunier has recently arrived in London as the third Kunstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral Artist-in-Residence at TrAIN. Meunier will be in the UK for six months between January and June 2009, where she will research and develop new work, in her studio at ACAVA London and via participation in TrAIN research seminars and events.

    The German artist and writer studied Fine Art and Literature in Mainz and at the Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg. From 2007 to 2008 she was attending the Jan Van Eyck Academy in Maastricht as a Researcher in Fine Art.

    Meunier’s works often revolve around the question how the ‘self’ is constructed and how it stands in relation to other persons within different situations of communication.
    The semi-scientific gesture of Meunier’s diagram videos serve to connect writing, speaking, temporality and the moving image. In Auto Description Model (2007), the communication between two people is sketched out step by step, including subjective assumptions and projections that become more and more complex through the engaging, thought-provoking, and amusing lecture format.
