Michael Queenland

Artist Talk Presented by Pepperdine Libraries

Wednesday, 15 March 2023

Payson Library
Pepperdine Libraries
Pepperdine University
24255 CA-1, Malibu, CA 90263, US

Pepperdine Libraries in partnership with the Fine Arts Division, will present an artist talk with Michael Queenland in the Surfboard Room at Payson Library on the Malibu campus.

Through his art, Queenland explores the relationships between culture, history, and human artifacts through sculpture, photography, and installation. His work engages with themes of identity, memory, dislocation, and the politics of the mundane. This artist talk follows Queenland’s most recent exhibition, Rudy’s Ramp of Remainders Redux, at Maureen Paley. This exhibition is a reworking of elements from Queenland’s first iteration of Rudy’s Ramp of Remainders, exhibited at the Santa Monica Museum of Art (now ICA-LA) in 2012.

Queenland’s artwork has previously been exhibited at venues including the Hammer Museum, UCLA (2018), and the Institute of Contemporary Art at Maine College of Art and Design in Portland, Maine (2005). He was a 2017 Fellow of the American Academy in Rome and received the institution’s Joseph H. Hazen Rome Prize.

This event is free and open to the public.

Michael Queenland: Rudy's Ramp of Remainders Redux is now open at Maureen Paley, 60 Three Colts Lane through 23 April 2023.

Sotheby's Contemporary Curated Charity Auction

Thursday, 9 March 2023
10:00 am EST

As part of Sotheby's Contemporary Curated auction in New York, a sequence of six works comprising Home Coming: Queer Artists Support the Ali Forney Center, will benefit New York’s Ali Forney Center (AFC), an organisation committed to helping LGBTQ+ homeless youth.

The dedicated sequence will feature Después de todo, solo estamos aquí una vez III, 2023 donated by Felipe Baeza. This is an intimately scaled example of the artist’s symbolically charged dreamscapes, which have come to define his practice.

Artists have contributed artworks to benefit the organisation which was founded in 2002 in memory of the late homeless gender-nonconforming youth, Ali Forney, offering temporary and permanent housing and services; providing food, shelter, access to education, job readiness training, and medical services; accommodating 24-hour drop-in centre among other life-saving resources to more than 2,000 queer young people in New York City.

General Idea

Ecce Homo: Drawings of General Idea

22 February – 18 July 2023

MAMCO Genève
Rue des Vieux-Grenadiers 101205 Genève

The 250 drawings on view were produced by Jorge Zontal, who made them as a habitual practice during the group’s brainstorming meetings; however, given General Idea’s mandate for co-authorship (and as demonstrated by the 'GI' signature affixed by Zontal shortly before his death) as well as the circumstances under which they were executed, they are considered to be collaborative.

After 1985, the drawings assumed a greater regularity when the group left Toronto, which felt increasingly isolated from the global art world, for New York. Through the 1980s their early joie de vivre was tempered by the pervasive presence of AIDS. In Bronson’s words, it was a period 'during which we had to face and somehow incorporate the illness and death of most of our friends, as well as Jorge and Felix themselves.' A number of AIDS-related works by General Idea are presented in adjacent rooms, including the rarely seen AIDS (Nauman), 1991.

The exhibition of General Idea’s drawings is organised by Lionel Bovier and Claire Gilman, Chief Curator of The Drawing Center, New York, where it was first presented.

Alexandra Bircken


(two-person with Lutz Huelle and a contribution by Wolfgang Tillmans)

through 28 January 2023

Fondation d'entreprise Pernod Ricard
1 Cr Paul Ricard
75008 Paris

The two-person exhibition La pensée corps brings together the work of Alexandra Bircken and Lutz Huelle with a contribution by Wolfgang Tillmans.

"Her works reveal the functioning of a thing, its intimacy, its construction or its assembly, whether it is a garment, an organ, a body fragment, a motorbike or a gun. Her experiments with materials also reveal his interest in the skin as an organ, a garment, a cellular structure, a vulnerable boundary between inside and outside."

"Friends since their teens, they soon formed an elective family with a third accomplice, the German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans, author of cult portraits of Bircken and Huelle. For La pensée corps, Wolfgang Tillmans presents a chapter he made for Pop Magazine (2019-2020) dedicated to Lutz Huelle."

– Claire Le Restif (Curator)
