Richard Barnes at Palais de Tokyo in Paris


In summer 2017, Palais de Tokyo will be staging "Dioramas", an exhibition that explores the diorama as an unexpected source of inspiration for contemporary art. At the crossroads of art, cinema and theater, this cross-disciplinary exhibition is the first large survey to recontextualize the diorama with a renewed approach to the history of spectactorship, including the influence of science and technology on popular culture, fun fairs and exhibitions.

Curators: Claire Garnier, Laurent Le Bon, Florence Ostende

This exhibition is organised in partnership with the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt.

Martin Klimas - Show at Blue Sky Gallery

Martin Klimas - Show at Blue Sky Gallery


In order to create dramatic large-scale images of porcelain figurines, photographer Martin Klimas drops ceramic sculptures from a height of three meters. The sound the ceramic sculptures make when they hit the ground trips the high-speed shutter, capturing the dynamic motion that would otherwise be invisible to the human eye. For Klimas, this act of destruction allows for the creation of a new, more powerful narrative for these once static objects before they cease to exist. The exhibition takes place from July 7th to the 31st at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, Oregon.

CASEY RUBLE TO FELLOW IN WASHINGTON D.C.

CASEY RUBLE TO FELLOW IN WASHINGTON D.C.


Gallery artist Casey Ruble is off to do a fellowship for the month of July at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery. During her tenure she will complete Red Summer, a project that re-renders every object in the National Portrait Gallery from the year 1919—the deadliest year of interracial violence in the nation’s history—in ink on paper, with the sitter of the portrait redacted. A contemplation on what we look at, what we miss, and the political and poetic ramifications of forgetting and remembering, this series of nearly 50 small-scale works is part of Ruble’s ongoing investigation of the history of race riots in the U.S.

In March, Casey Ruble and the gallery enjoyed a write up of her show Everything that Rises in the New York Times' column What To See In New York Art Galleries This Week

Through July 31 2016, Thomas Allen "Stranger" is on view at the Akron Museum of Art in a show titled, PULP. "The photographs in PULP span several decades, styles and approaches to the medium, but they share a connection to the humble and ubiquitous piece of paper. When recycled, scrap paper is milled into a pulp and then pressed into fresh, blank sheets. PULP highlights another type of recycling, in which artists create new images from discarded or insignificant fragments of modern life".

The German photographer Martin Klimas is known for using high-speed-camera technology to capture processes that might otherwise escape the naked eye. He has fired projectiles into fruits and vegetables and photographed their exploding flesh, and shattered ceramic figures and delicate flowers to capture their thousands of dispersing shards in midair. In recent years, Klimas has devoted himself to exploring visual representations of sound...
