Must See Berlin

Tuesday, May 24

  • Ends May 28th 2016

  • Known for rephotographing images found across the spectrum of commercial and art photography, the New York–based artist presents two new series in the same vein. “Women Crying,” 2016, features enlarged and cropped images of tearful ladies taken from LP covers, while “Tripod,” 2016, is based on ads for photography equipment. Photos of photos is a simple way to describe these works, but Collier’s reified images are surprisingly profound.

  • In his ongoing project examining the art-historical, industrial, and commercial dimensions of photography, Christopher Williams notably features one particular piece of drywall in his latest exhibition. This piece—which Williams first showed in 2009 at Germany’s Bonner Kunstverein as part of a typological display of mobile wall systems, and then used as an actual wall in his Whitechapel Gallery show in 2015—was rephotographed and printed into images for this current exhibition, which are shown alongside the original wall in a characteristically meta move for this artist.

  • The basis of the American artist’s latest work, Epigraph, Damascus, are architectural drawings she made from photos of Damascus. Mehretu used a range of traditional etching techniques to create the final layered image, which sprawls across six panels in a flurry of the artist’s signature painterly gestures.

  • A follow up to Phillips’s 2015 show at Mathew NYC, which featured a takeoff on Christopher Wool’s and Albert Oehlen’s paintings, the American artist’s latest paintings enter into a dialogue with Gerhard Richter’s abstractions. Overlaying an old, found series of black-and-white portraits of a female model with painterly neon rainbows of oil color applied via a painstakingly cut vinyl mask, the artist achieves a certain psychedelic tone at once celebratory and satirical of the expressive associations of abstract painting.

  • As a photojournalist, Lee Miller captured haunting images of WWII, including scenes of aerial bombardments of London, the liberation of Paris, and Nazi concentration camps in Dachau and Buchenwald. Though she was often footnoted in history as Man Ray’s muse and partner, the one hundred photographs included in this exhibition are a testament to Miller’s singular talent and diverse repertoire encompassing Surrealism, fashion, and documentary reportage.

  • Taking as his subject the space and contents of his own studio, Wolfgang Tillmans slots another entry into the veritable historical genre of artists depicted at work. While scenes from his native site of production have previously appeared as a backdrop in many of his portraits, here they take center stage.

  • Ostensibly describing a flight from Israel to Azerbaijan—where he was commissioned to make a new work last fall—the strange artifacts that make up Oscar Murillo’s poetically titled solo show include metal beds, industrial scales, and oil-on-canvas sculptures strung up like sails or carcasses in a slaughterhouse, a comparison strengthened by the heavy odor permeating the installation. By turns elegant, obtuse, creepy, and harrowing, the artist’s latest politically inflected works are, in his own words, “detritus of a failed period.”

  • Inspired by the gallery’s location—the fourth floor of an office building at Alexanderplatz—Rachel Harrison’s latest work seeps from the exhibition space and takes over an empty conference room next door, colonizing the corporate dwelling with self-reflexive selfie-stick-holding sculptures and anachronistic drawings that mix Amy Winehouse into a soup of various art-historical figures.

  • The Berlin-based artist’s latest installation, Manifesto, comprises thirteen films screened simultaneously to create a cacophonous audio-visual collage of manifestos written by artists, architects, choreographers, and filmmakers. All are embodied by Hollywood actress Cate Blanchett delivering the words of Jim Jarmusch, Sol LeWitt, Kazimir Malevich, Adrian Piper, Sturtevant, and Tristan Tzara, among others.
