Felipe Baeza


Unruly Visions
September 2022 – June 2023

Getty Research Institute
Getty Center
Los Angeles, California

The Getty Research Institute has announced that Felipe Baeza will be awarded their Guest Scholarship for 2022/2023.

Baeza's practice is equal parts confrontation of violent pasts and a tribute to people whose sense of personhood is constantly litigated and defined by those in power. His 'fugitive bodies' created over densely layered paintings appear in different states of becoming and at times are even abstracted to the point of invisibility.

The Getty Research Institute welcomes this year’s scholars, who will be conducting research on the themes Art and Migration and The Levant and the Classical World during the 2022/2023 scholar year.

Andrew Grassie


1 July 2022

6:30 - 7:15 pm

Room 53
The National Gallery
Trafalgar Square
London WC2N 5DN

This Friday Andrew Grassie will discuss his affinity with Piero della Francesca's The Baptism of Christ and will be joined by Daniel Hermann, Curator of Modern & Contemporary Projects at the National Gallery, London.

Unexpected views are monthly conversations between our curators and some of the most important cultural practitioners of today. Discussions focus on a selected masterpiece from the National Gallery Collection, exploring its relevance to the artist’s work, or more broadly to current social and cultural issues.

By allowing for new discussions of the Old Masters, the series aims for critical, counter-intuitive and joyful approaches to our collection, which reflect the breadth of contemporary artistic practice.

The event is part of Friday Lates.

Lawrence Abu Hamdan

Planétarium #12: Lawrence Abu Hamdan and Alexandre Galand

Wednesday 22 June 2022
7 – 9 pm (CEST)

Centre Pompidou
Paris, France

Lawrence Abu Hamdan presents Daght Jawi: A Live Audio-Visual Essay as part of the Planétarium series of symposiums at the Centre Pompidou. 

This twelfth session in the series includes contributions from Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Alexandre Galand, author of Field Recording : L'usage sonore du monde en 100 albums (2012, éditions Le mot et le Reste), alongside artist and researcher Éric Valette.

Daght Jawi analyses background noise and atmospheres of violence through clustering and evolving ongoing research initially conducted between May 2020 and May 2021. The artist’s starting point was his own detailed documentation of the sky over Lebanon—the result of filming more than 400 videos of Israeli fighter planes and drones. The audio-visual essay brings to life this roaring sky in chronological order, alongside live audio processing. Abu Hamdan’s atmosphere emerges in multitudinous ways—moving seamlessly from the quotidian to the menacing; the limitless to the contained.

This is the first presentation of the work in France.

Lawrence Abu Hamdan is included in the 12th Berlin Biennale of Contemporary Art, where his work Air Conditioning (2022), is currently presented.
