"Body Language"
Curated by Abbe Schriber, Curatorial Assistant
Jul 18, 2013 - Oct 27, 2013
Body Language explores the body and written or verbal expression. Comprised mostly of works from the Studio Museum’s permanent collection, the exhibition shows how artists use language to evoke relationships to bodies, including those of viewers, using the human form to communicate ideas much as words might. Some of the artists investigate the language of nonverbal communication, while others inscribe, paint or gesture onto the page. Other works depict figures to purposefully elicit a “read”—how might audiences interpret a portrait differently than the artist’s (or author’s) intention? Body Language also illustrates the international scope of the Museum’s collection, with work by Deborah Grant, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Valerie Piraino, Malick Sidibé, Tavares Strachan, Barthélémy Toguo, among others.

•Barthélémy Toguo,
Against the Grain; Wood in Contemporary Art, Craft and Design
October 12, 2013 – January 20, 2014

Featuring nearly 90 installations, sculptures, furniture and objects, Against the Grain: Wood in Contemporary Art, Craft and Design, explores the most cutting-edge conceptual and technical trends in woodworking today by artists and designers including Sarah Oppenheimer, Martin Puryear, Marc Andre Robinson, Alison Elizabeth Tayor, Ai Weiwei, Maartin Baas, Sebastian Errazuriz, Barthélémy Toguo, Mark Moskovitz and Ursula von Rydingsvard, among others. The exhibition emphasizes the way artists, designers and craftspeople have incorporated post-modernist approaches and strategies into woodworking – deconstructing vessel shapes, playing on the relationship between function and form, and utilizing woodturning and furniture techniques in the creation of sculpture. The works challenge traditional applications of wood within the design and craft worlds, and exemplify the wide-ranging, often unexpected approaches to the medium.

Against the Grain: Wood in Contemporary Art, Craft and Design is organized by the Museum of Arts and Design, New York and curated by Lowery Stokes Sims, Charles Bronfman International Curator at the Museum of Arts and Design, assisted by Elizabeth Edwards Kirrane, Assistant Curator at MAD.

"AQUI AFRICA", African Contemporary art
Curator : Adelina von Furstenberg
November 20/2015 - March 22/2016
SESC Belenzhino, Sao Paulo, Brazil
www.hereafrica.net

The Cuban historian Manuel Moreno Fraginals summarises in a sentence the suffocating atmosphere that pervaded African people on the American continent. “The issue here is trying not to die.” Undertaken out of extreme urgency, struck by the physical and psycho- logical violence of slavery, the black community has found its survival space in its culture and in particular in musical expression, that would become, in the twentieth century, the most powerful and diversified range of musical genres in the world: Blues, Jazz and Rock and Roll in the United States, Samba in Brazil, Mambo and Guaguancó in Cuba, Merengue in the Dominican Republic, Candombe in Uruguay, etc. From Africa we inherited rhythms, different types of religiosity, a multitude of spices and products, but above all we were confronted with forced migration, as the result of African slavery that brought millions of men and women who in fact became the basis of both agricultural and industrial development for many colonies and future western republics. The wealth of sugar, tobacco, coffee, cocoa, as well as many other food industries, would be unthinkable without the African workforce. Aqui Africa assembles a unique proposal of contemporary African art including painting, sculpture, photography, video, films and music.

"Chassés-Croisés-ours et détours autour du détroit
20.12.14 > 14.02.15
"Curators: Margaux Brugvin, Delphine David et Gauthier Melin
Artists: Walead Beshty, Berlinde de Bruyckere, Olivier Jobard, Bouchra Khalili, Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen, Mehdi Meddaci, Allan Sekula, Bruno Serralongue, Barthélémy Toguo, Lawrence Weiner
Espace Salon, Vitrine, Cinéma et Belvédère, FRAC/AP2
503 Avenue des Bancs de Flandres

Objets disparates, œuvres d’art, témoignages, documents d’archive… c’est à travers divers media que l’exposition “Chassés croisés” explore l’un des paradoxes les plus sensibles à l’ère de la mondialisation: les tensions entre libre circulation des biens et des personnes et immigration irrégulière. Revenant sur les spécificités du détroit du Pas de Calais, l’exposition cherche à porter un nouveau regard sur les migrations en questionnant les représentations de l’étranger, du nomade, du voyageur.
Initiée par le collectif Conversation Piece et avec le soutien de divers acteurs pour l’aide aux migrants, Chassés croisés est conçue comme une exposition participative. Elle proposera au public de repenser le rapport à cet Autre que l’on croise sans jamais rencontrer.

http://www.ville-arles.fr/

Two gigantic chairs stuck directly in the middle of the nave inside Saint-Anne’s chapel,
one laden with bundles of material, the other with large wooden stamps, both surrounded
by loads of others, normal sized: Barthélémy Toguo occupies the territory. In the
chancel, a pyramid of more bundles, in the lateral alcoves, additional stamps
simply placed on tables. All multicolored, multicultural and multinational, his work
proceeds from an open, altruist reflection about man’s destiny and the way the world works.
Homelessness, displacement, evocation, Toguo stages all sorts of drifting, testimony
of his will to embrace the world. A work open to all horizons and all
winds when the spirit breathes with humanity in perpetual movement.

The first used the head of a lion on the front of the shirt.
This imposing animal is emblematic of Africa,

It also suggests an ability to overcome any adversary
