Exhibition Kontakt with Guy Schraenen, curated by Maike Aden
Guy Schraenen, Je est un autre, 1987. Private Collection Antwerp

Guy Schraenen (1941–2018) was a gallery owner, publisher, collector, curator, investigator, author. He is probably best known as one of the key figures of a transboundary network of pioneering artists and activists who, from the end of the 1950s on, explored radical new  languages and ways of producing, multiplying, and disseminating artistic ideas and works. Long before established art institutions, critics, and art historians recognized the artistic value of artists' publications, Guy Schraenen treasured, published, exchanged, collected, and presented them to give “the opportunity to a public, kept ignorant by specialized media, to have knowledge”

The exhibition seeks to illustrate Guy Schraenen's various projects, approaches, and connections, starting with his activities as founder of the Galerie Kontakt. It displays works and documents of his publishing house Guy Schraenen éditeur, and of the Archive for Small Press & Communication, whist he ran with Anne Marsily. It also reflects his exhibitions, festivals, screenings, concerts, essays and radio programs as well as his projects as founder and curator of artists’ publication collections in several European museums. Altogether, it witnesses Schraenen’s deep concern to take an independent stance toward the canons of the established art system and to explore new territories.

ULISES CARRIÓN. DEAR READER. DON'T READ / QUERIDO LECTOR. NO LEA

 

Organised by: Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Madrid

March 15 - October 10, 2016

 

Iteration: Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo Mexico City

February 09 - April 30, 2017

The Museo Reina Sofía presents the retrospective Dear Reader. Don't read, dedicated to the Mexican creator Ulises Carrión (1941, San Andrés Tuxtla, Veracruz, Mexico - 1989 Amsterdam, The Netherlands). Carrión was an artist, editor, writer, exhibition curator and theorist of the international avant-garde art scene after the 1960s, as well as a key figure in Mexican conceptual art.

The exhibition aims to illustrate all aspects of his artistic and intellectual work: from his initial career as a successful young writer in Mexico, and his university years as a graduate student in France, Germany and England during which he studied language and linguistics; to his numerous activities developed in Amsterdam, the city in which Carrión settled definitively in 1972, and in which he lived until his death at the age of 49...
