January 30 – April 28, 2013

The Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive is pleased to present “Silence”, a survey exhibition that presents nearly a century of modern and contemporary art and film to examine the spiritual, existential, and political aspects of silence. It includes work by among others Manon de Boer and Mark Manders. In today’s digitized world, silence is increasingly elusive. For composer John Cage, the absence of sound was not merely elusive, it was impossible. His groundbreaking composition 4’33” contained no actual music, but instead called attention to the ambient sounds surrounding the performance and its audience. He asserted “there is always something to see, something to hear.” On the occasion of Cage’s hundredth birthday, Silence presents nearly a century of modern and contemporary art and film to examine the spiritual, existential, and political aspects of silence.

Mark Manders solo presentation by Tanya Bonakdar Gallery at The Art Show – New York City

March 2nd, 2011 by

March 2 – 6, 2011

It is with great excitement that Tanya Bonakdar announces its participation in the ADAA Art Show with a solo presentation by Mark Manders.

Working primarily in sculpture and installation, this presentation will comprise four new and exceptional examples of works relating to the artist’s ongoing exploration into “self-portrait as a building.” Developed over twenty years as an endless self-portrait in the form of sculpture, still life, and architectural plans, Manders’ works present a mysterious and evocative tableau that leaves narrative conclusions and associative meaning to the viewer.

Manders has shown in many notable international exhibitions including Manifesta 2004, Documenta 2005, the 4th Berlin Biennale in 2006 and the 55th Carnegie International in 2008. Manders is also currently the subject of a major traveling survey exhibition, “Mark Manders: Parallel Occurrences / Documented Assignments,” which originated at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, just recently opened at the Aspen Art Museum and will travel to the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and the Dallas Museum of Art throughout 2011.

The gallery strongly encourages you to visit the gallery as well to see its current exhibitions of Liz Larner and Jason Meadows, on through March 19. Additionally, the gallery will be showing new works by gallery artists in its private viewing rooms- including Uta Barth, Martin Boyce, Mark Dion, Olafur Eliasson, Charles Long, Susan Philipsz, Haim Steinbach, Jack Strange, and Sarah Sze.

Mark Manders solo exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum – Aspen, CO

February 18, 2011 – May 11, 2011

The Hammer Museum and the Aspen Art Museum have co-organized Mark Manders Parallel Occurances/Documented Assignments, the first North American tour of this acclaimed Dutch sculptor’s work. Through his sculptural practice, the artist seeks to bypass language, translating his thoughts and obsessions directly into three-dimensional objects existing and self-made and tableaux that incorporate figures, animals, household furniture, archeological fragments, everyday objects, and architectural components. Transformed by their proximity to one another, these mundane sculptural elements collectively evoke a mysterious world of daydreams and fairy tales.

In exhibition after exhibition, Manders furthers his monumental project, initiated in 1986, entitled Self-Portrait as a Building, which endeavors to map out his identity using this distinct personal iconography. For this exhibition, the artist will create a completely new body of work, encompassing sculpture and works on paper.

Marlene Dumas and Mark Manders in Selections from the Donna and Howard Stone Collection exhibition at Art Institute of Chicago – Chicago, IL

June 25th, 2010 by

June 25 – September 19, 2010

Nationally renowned for their acclaimed collection of contemporary art, Donna and Howard Stone are equally respected for their longstanding commitment to the city of Chicago and its arts community. The Stones view their passion for art and collecting as an important and treasured aspect of their partnership, and surely many Chicago institutions museums and universities especially have benefited greatly from their dedicated patronage. The Art Institute is thrilled to present the first public exhibition of works from their collection, featuring a number of important gifts to the museum, on view this summer in the Abbott Galleries and the eponymous Stone Film, Video, and New Media Gallery.

Putting together their collection over the past three decades, the Stones have built a rich, intergenerational assortment of art in all media. While there is a focus on the Minimalist and Conceptual schools of the 1960s and 1970s, including works by artists such as Sol LeWitt, Dan Flavin, Fred Sandback, and Richard Tuttle, there are also substantial works by younger artists, such as Gabriel Orozco, Mark Manders, Roni Horn, Robert Gober, Marlene Dumas, and Felix Gonzalez-Torres, deeply influenced by that previous generation. With consideration given to works produced in Chicago and beyond, the collection has grown into a truly international representation of contemporary art-making practices of the last 50 years.
