Ecce Homo: The Drawings of General Idea

The Drawing Center 2022 Benefit Auction

28 September 2022, 6 - 9 pm (EST)

The Drawing Center
35 Wooster Street
New York, 10013

The Online Auction is now live

This year's event includes a silent auction featuring works on paper generously donated by leading artists, including General Idea's work Continental Poodle in Curlers, 1991. Funds raised through this event provide critical support for The Drawing Center's ambitious roster of exhibitions, publications, education initiatives, and public programs.


Ecce Homo: The Drawings of General Idea


7 October 2022 – 15 January 2023

The Drawing Center, in partnership with Musée d’art moderne et contemporain Geneva (MAMCO), will bring together the drawings of General Idea authored between 1985 and 1993, for the first time in the United States, and again in Geneva in February 2023.

Investigating motifs in the group’s multimedia works such as poodles, stiletto heels, masks, heraldry, and metamorphosed genitalia, these drawings were primarily produced by Jorge Zontal during group meetings. However, given General Idea’s mandate for co-authorship, as well as the circumstances under which they were executed, the drawings are considered to be collaborative. Although they are done entirely by hand, the repetition of specific motifs follows a viral logic that is akin to General Idea’s own penchant for mass reproduction. Seen together, these drawings are a fascinating window into General Idea’s distinct artistic vision as well as their unique notions of collaboration and co-authorship.

Organized by Claire Gilman, Chief Curator, the Drawing Center, and Lionel Bovier, Director, MAMCO.

LOFOTEN INTERNATIONAL ART FESTIVAL 2022: FANTASMAGORIA

3 September – 2 October 2022

Venue:
The Haunted School
Rækøyveien 12, 8310 Kabelvåg
Norway

We are delighted to announce that Lars Laumann will participate in Fantasmagoriana, Lofoten International Art Festival 2022.

Fantasmagoriana originated with the sharing of an oral tale, which put forward an archaeology of the Arctic region as a landscape for "Gothic” literature. Through its sharing, this narrative became a tactic for transmitting tacit knowledge, where information about natural, fictional, and political events could weave freely into new maps, which evolved and adapted within the contexts in which the invited artists operate.

Curated by: Francesco Urbano Ragazzi

TERRAIN: THE EARTH BENEATH MY FEET

Thursday, 29 September 2022 – 8 pm

The Barbican Hall
Barbican Centre
Silk Street, London
EC2Y 8DS

Mercury Prize nominated Portico Quartet and Turner Prize nominated artist Hannah Collins present the world premiere performance of their new audio-visual work Terrain: The Earth Beneath My Feet.

In this profound, collaborative audio-visual performance of Terrain: The Earth Beneath My Feet, Hannah Collins’ sensitive, mesmerizing images of Las Campanas Observatory in the Atacama Desert in Chile, find a gently resonant dialogue with Portico Quartet’s 2021 album Terrain, a body of work that represents one of the most complex and beautiful pieces the band have composed, shifting through different musical worlds with an insistent pulse and horizontal movement.
