CCA, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow
Tea and cakes, all welcome.

This will be the first major publication charting the development of Kate Davis' practice from 2004 – 2010, culminating in her current two-person exhibition project with Faith Wilding, titled 'The Long Loch: How Do We Go On From Here?' and commissioned for Glasgow International by the CCA, Glasgow. Over this six year period Davis’s work has evolved through specific bodies of work, creating carefully composed environments, which incorporate drawings, collages, sculptural objects and most recently films. These installations often pose questions, or seek to manifest Davis’s responses to the work and practice of other artists, whilst commenting on the ever-shifting political, sociological and cultural environments in which art is produced.
The publication features a newly commissioned essay by Caoimhin Mac Giolla Leith, a conversation between Kate Davis and Jason. E Bowman and is designed by Robert Dallas Gray.

'Role Forward' is jointly published by the CCA, Glasgow and Sorcha Dallas.
Supported by The Scottish Arts Council and The Hope Scott Trust.

Collective Gallery Press Release - Torsten Lauschmann


Collective Gallery
Press Release
Torsten Lauschmann
Patchwork Cinema
Exhibition, 5 June – 18 July 2010, Collective Gallery, Edinburgh.

Collective is delighted to present a solo exhibition and project by Torsten Lauschmann. Lauschmann’s expansive work incorporates drawing, installation, video, sculpture, performance, events and software creation. A previous work took the form of a worldwide, hoax project ‘World Jump Day’ ( His work questions the preconceived, pushes the possible and investigates hidden aspects of media.
“Lauschmann is long overdue wider recognition for a diverse range of work reprocessed for a bewildering variety of venues and audiences. He has a playful approach to the use and misuse of technologies in his practice which has been highly influential on his peers in Scotland.” Dr Neil Mulholland, Director, Centre of Visual & Cultural Studies, Edinburgh College of Art.
Collective are working with Edinburgh International Film Festival to provide Torsten with a rich resource for his practice. The new work deconstructs the experience of time and cinema through the projected image - he will use one of the earliest forms of a camera obscura, the now obsolete slide projection and digital video projections.
In Collective’s Gallery II, ‘Patchwork Cinema’ is an alternative cinema experience with an assemblage of found film footage sourced by the artist and including early cinema and animation, edited to fit with the opening hours of the gallery, from 11am-5pm. The collaged film footage is echoed in the installation with a patchwork cinema environment including a custom-made curtain. Much of the footage has never been screened in the UK before.
Prior to entering ‘Patchwork Cinema’, Gallery I will function as a waiting area for visitors preceding their cinema experience. As part of the waiting space Torsten showsDigital Clock (Growing Zeros)’ 2010 consisting of a looped 24-hour projection of a digital clock with the red numerals changed manually by visible hands. This less formal digital time matches 'correct time' local time. He will also be showing
new video work ‘parlez-vous hollywood?’ (working title).

In Collective’s Guest Room, Lauschmann
will be experimenting with pre-cinema optics, taking the form of a camera obscura.

Event, Thursday 24 June, 8 -9pm
Duration: 30 min
The Filmhouse, Lothian Road,
Part of Edinburgh International Film Festival
Sideshow is a one–off performance/screening event by artist Torsten Lauschmann, presented and commissioned by Collective in association with Edinburgh International Film Festival.
Through intervention and technological trickery, Sideshow questions the formalised cinema experience. In this new work Torsten Lauschmann references the customary cinema experience and highlights the pivotal point in early cinema when film presentation was not prescribed in the same way.
Sideshow, which will be presented at the Filmhouse in Cinema 1, uses a creative approach to technology and intervention, the audience are witness to a breakdown of standard cinema conventions and offered an alternative place from which to view film.
“Grinding through abstract oddities past and present. Including the ever so popular "What is it?" attraction. Sideshow turns the imitation of life into a special effect. Cinema reunited with its embarrassing family of distasteful grannies and boring cousins. Please leave your mobile switched on and do not touch or feed the animals.” Torsten Lauschmann on Sideshow
Collective initiated this new cross-art form residency for Torsten Lauschmann in collaboration with EIFF. For the duration of EIFF 2010, the artist has had access to all areas including industry screenings, film vaults and central film festival hub, offering a rich resource for his practice.
Torsten was commissioned to produce new work Sideshow specifically for the context of a cinema as well as the corresponding solo exhibition at Collective.

Berlin Biennale: Curatorial Workshop and Art Education

The 6th Berlin Biennale introduces this year's curatorial workshop and art education:

on the occasion of the 6th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art

Based on the success of the curatorial workshops held in relation to the 4th and 5th Berlin Biennale, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, supported by the Goethe-Institut Munich, Allianz Cultural Foundation, and BMW takes the 6th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art as an occasion to once again strengthen the initiative of young curators by organizing a workshop for thirteen young, international aspirants of this field.

The curatorial workshop Real Players will take place around the opening days of the 6th Berlin Biennale from June 5 to 15, 2010. Consisting of ten days of seminars and debates, as well as exhibition and studio visits, it aims to enhance the young curators' professional development by exploring in depth topics of this year's edition of the biennial. The workshop will thus emphasize the question of how to navigate, think, and create new perspectives within our current social context and realities. Further it will provide the young participants with an exclusive look 'behind the scenes' of the 6th Berlin Biennale as well as give insights into the current art production of Berlin, supplemented by a two-day excursion to Warsaw.

Public Lecture by Boris Groys
As part of the curatorial workshop a public lecture by Boris Groys will be held on June 9, 2010 at 6 pm in Festsaal Kreuzberg (Skalitzer Straße 130, Berlin-Kreuzberg).
Lecture in English, admission free.

Invitation: I’m Not Here. An Exhibition Without Francis Alÿs

not there

de Appel Curatorial Programme

Opening: 16th April, 6 – 10 p.m.
17th April – 6th June 2010

I'm Not Here. An Exhibition Without Francis Alÿs is an exhibition that brings together a group of 14 international artists. The title of the exhibition is inspired by the film of Todd Haynes' I'm Not There (2007), in which six actors depict different facets of Bob Dylan's life and his artistic persona while Dylan himself is absent from the film. Francis Alÿs is the absent protagonist of the exhibition. The atmosphere of Alÿs's work is implicitly present without suggesting literal illustration of his oeuvre or specific aspects of his practice. By shifting the spotlight from a well-established artist to a group of related artistic practices, the exhibition not only redistributes agency to all of the participating artists, but also engenders a critical interrogation of the format of the solo show. We invite the audience to think about Alÿs by thinking about the artists in the exhibition and thus to challenge the privileging of presence over absence.

Participating Artists:
Mounira Al Solh (LB/NL), Stefan Brüggemann (MX/UK), Vaast Colson (BE), Luisa Cunha (PT), Grier Edmundson (US), Noa Giniger (IL/NL), André Guedes (PT), Tatiana Mesa (CU), Gustav Metzger (UK), Roman Ondák (SK), Pak Sheung Chuen (HK/CN), Wilfredo Prieto (CU/ES), Ariel Schlesinger (IL/DE), David Sherry (UK)

All Art Initiatives Call for Entries

The Métamatic Research Initiative is launching a call for entries to commission six individual art works in line with its mission. The initiative welcomes proposals from visual artists working in all disciplines.

The Métamatic Research Initiative's mission is to stimulate research into ideas stemming from the work and philosophy of the French-Swiss artist Jean Tinguely (1925-1991). Specifically, the research initiative focuses on Tinguely's exploration of the relationship between the artist, the art work and the viewer as expressed in his Métamatic sculptures. The call for entries is part of a broader effort of the initiative, in which funding will be given to both academic and artistic research activities, ranging from educational projects for young people to the commissioning of individual art works.

The Métamatic Research Initiative
The Swiss born artist Jean Tinguely lived most of his artistic life in Paris, where he was one of the initiators of the Nouveau Réalisme movement in 1960. Tinguely was amongst the leading artists incorporating movement and other time-based elements in his work. By the late 1950s Tinguely embarked on a series of generative apparatus he called Métamatics, based on the idea of machines producing art works. With this series of works Tinguely not only problematised the introduction of the robotic machine as interface in our society, but moreover investigated the role of the artist, as well as that of the art work and the viewer. Out of a fascination with this specific topic within Tinguely's work the initiative wishes to stimulate research into the ways in which contemporary artists deal with the relation between artist, viewer and art work. This project kicked off on 25-27 October, when the Initiative hosted an expert meeting in Amsterdam where 9 renowned scholars and artists g athered to discuss the topic, and to set parameters for further artistic and academic research.
The aim of this research is two-fold:
- to generate a high-profile collection of 'art producing objects',
- to support and stimulate awareness and knowledge on the subject through:
scientific research, exhibitions, and educational programmes on different levels.

Who are we?
The Métamatic Research Initiative is an initiative of the All Art Initiatives Foundation, based in Amsterdam. The foundation is a privately funded non-profit foundation set up to stimulate visual art through the funding of:
- artistic and academic research, - monographs on artists and other publications,
- projects that will increase exposure and make the media available to a wider audience,
- stimulate the incorporation of relevant works in public collections, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

The deadline for entries is 1 June 2010. For further information visit our website Press kits will be available upon request at or call Siebe Tettero.

2010 Turner Prize Nominees

The Otolith Group Exhibit in Edinburgh College of Art Collaboration

“They Do Things Differently There”
Venue: Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh

PRESS PREVIEW: Friday 4 June, 3-4pm, images available (see below)
PRIVATE VIEW: Friday 4 June 6-8pm

2010 Turner Prize nominees, The Otolith Group will screen Otolith II for the first time in Scotland in a collaborative exhibition by MA students at Edinburgh College of Art.
They Do Things Differently There is a collaborative curatorial project by Edinburgh College of Art’s Contemporary Art Theory and Visual & Material Culture MA students. Coming from diverse backgrounds including; art practice, art history, design, anthropology, conservation, and visual communication, the group has come together as part of their assessment to explore the many facets of curating and a common theme of perceptions of time. The culmination of this collective project is an exhibition at the Talbot Rice Gallery, which has evolved and developed from the group’s shared interest in the archival process, influenced initially by the historical significance of the gallery itself. Exploring the practice of collecting and exhibiting has become the foundation for this exhibition.

Historical collections are bound up with traditions and memories which repeat and reinvent themselves. When considering how we look at collections today, it is impossible to ignore the chronology of histories and the categorisation of time. From this, an interest was developed in looking at time as a nonlinear process. The ways in which we look at the past are always relative because time is forever moving forward, and as soon as the present seems the only identifiable entity, it is no longer the present, but at once, the past. They Do Things Differently There explores the infinite mysteries of time. Included works examine temporality and the delineation of time through questions of personal and shared identity, the perception of the past and the notion of collecting.
Also featuring in this exciting project will be Duncan Campbell’s Fall Burns Malone Fiddles, a film of meticulously gathered material from community photographic archives in Belfast. Newly commissioned work and live performance from Glasgow-based artist and musician Raydale Dower will respond to the legacy of Eric Satie. Also exhibiting new work will be Omar Zingaro Bhatia, Tracey Eastham, Stuart David Fallon and Ailsa Lochhead. London-based David Raymond Conroy will reinterpret existing installations specific to the structure of the gallery, and Lorna Macintyre will exhibit works made for her solo show at Kunsthaus Baselland earlier this year. Other artists include Ross Chisholm, S Mark Gubb & Road Kill, and Thomson & Craighead.
