June 24 – July 23, 2013

Headlands Center for the Arts is pleased to host artist Martijn Tellinga (music/sound) in the Artist in Residence Summer Program 2013. Martijn Tellinga (1974, Netherlands) is a composer and sound-artist in the field of new electro-acoustic music and sonic arts. His work shows a great care for textural qualities and eye for compositoric detail and seeks its identity somewhere in the overlap of formalized form and intuitive musicmaking. More than relying on melody, harmony and rhythm, these works are constructed from the fundamental building blocks of music: timbre, texture, volume and time-elapse. Tellinga composes for quadraphonic- and multichannel environments, exploring both sonic directionality as well as spacial characteristics of the physical setting the work is performed in.

June 27, 2013, 9:30am (CET!)

Adams Amsterdam Auctions is pleased to present the auction of personal items by Dutch writer and artist Jan Cremer. This auction takes place online via ArtFacts Auctions. Jan Cremer realized his childhood dreams far beyond imagination. He gathered fame, wealth and the affections of some of the most coveted women of his time. Despite wandering all over the world, restless as he was, he meticulously saved all of the silent witnesses of his picaresque adventures, of his superhuman achievements and of his countless conquests in large chests at his various houses: designs, paintings, manuscripts, letters, photos, and other documents and objects – the fruits of his own talent and of that of the many artists, writers and girlfriends he met throughout his eventful life: Andy Warhol and Nico, Brian Jones and Bob Dylan, Jayne Mansfield and Betsey Johnson, Topor and Tinguely, Charles Jackson and Frank O’Hara, Constant and Corneille, Karel Appel and Klaas Gubbels, Armando and Schoonhoven, Reve and Hermans, Tom Wesselmann and Willem de Kooning and many, many others. It is with great pleasure that Adams Amsterdam Auctions offers over 800 treasures from Jan Cremer’s abundant life and work, and a manifold of connected stories.

June 8-9, 2013

Marianne van Ooij is pleased to present Matter of Scent at Figment, partipatory art festival on Governors Island, NYC.  Smelling a specific scent can trigger a flood of memories. Due to the location of the sense of smell in our brain, memories become almost visible. This installation intends to convey the power of our individual imaginations in combination with the almost involuntary immediacy of scent. Though seemingly elusive and fleeting, certain scents can leave a deeper impression than visual cues. Once imprinted, these sense memories can summon strong visual associations.

June 8 – July 27, 2013

AMBACH & RICE is pleased to present Phasmid, a solo exhibition debuting five salvaged wood relief sculptures by Ron van der Ende. Phasmid is the scientific classification for stick insects. The title suggests a parallel between the insect’s evolved camouflage and the artist’s wood skin constructions, which serve as trompe l’oeil surrogates for their real world counterparts. The phasmid’s ability to hide in plain sight is analogous to Van der Ende’s interest in commonplace themes, in particular objects and forms rendered invisible by their ubiquitous nature.

Harm van den Dorpel online exhibition “Dissociations” via the New Museum – New York City

May 2013 – ongoing

The New Museum is pleased to present Harm van den Dorpel: Dissociations, an online exhibition. How can an artist’s work be represented online? Possibilities run the gamut from the “white cube” aesthetic donned by gallery websites to the more free-form, anarchic expressions of a Tumblr page, or a simple, home-brewed interface. Through such projects, we can generally see the work in some form (whether sculpture, video, or a Firefox plug-in) as well as what an artist persona looks like online (as opposed to say, that of a corporation). We can even approximate what an artist’s brand might be amid the digital swell of marketing and self-presentation (for instance, evasive user interfaces instead of clean, user-friendly ones). In more experimental modes—think collectively built archives or an artist’s blog that doubles as a public sketchbook—artist websites flout individual authorship and singular finished products that are closed to the public. And yet the question remains of whether it is possible to evince more than the artwork itself, to reveal the whole practice: the research, the influence, and what it’s like to make work over time.
