Tokens of the Path
Exhibition in the Ethnographic Museum at the University of Zurich
The exhibition Tokens of the Path. Japanese Devotional and Pilgrimage Images
in the Ethnographic Museum at the University of Zurich presents the collection of Wilfried Spinner (1854-1918) to the public for the first time.
On behalf of his return from an East Asian mission, the Swiss pastor brought back to Europe around eighty religious scrolls, which have only very recently become objects of academic-ethnological exploration in the West as well as in Japan itself.
The diverse content of the Devotional and Pilgrimage Images draws an impressive picture of the encounter of religious trends and their hybrid forms in late nineteenth-century Japan - on view from 28.11.14 to 17.5.15 in Zurich (CH).
The correspondent publication
presents the technical, social and religious aspects of the scrolls and explains their significance in rites and pilgrimages in Japan at the time and today.
Ann Wolff - Persona
On view at Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung, Munich
The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung
dedicates the second project in its exhibition series MASTER | MEISTER to the German-Swedish artist Ann Wolff (b. 1937). Its focus is on those sculptures that Ann Wolff created in the last five years specifically for this exhibition. On view in the garden is a new aluminum sculpture, older works as well as pastel drawings.
Ann Wolff is one of the most important and striking artists to use the expressive diversity of the material glass in a new and virtuoso manner. Continually exploring the existential questions of being human is an important and fundamental driving force for her work.
The exhibition is on view until 12.6.2015 in Munich. For a glimpse at Ann Wolff's oeuvre please follow this link
Exhibition of the Porzellansammlung (Porcelain Collection) in the Dresden Zwinger
On the occasion of the 300th birthday of Adam Friedrich von Löwenfinck the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden
dedicates a comprehensive exhibition to the most significant painter of ceramics.
The special exhibition, based on several years of research, presents the most recent results and offers an essential revaluation of the oeuvre, which was until now sceptically debated.
From October 1, 2014 Fantastical Worlds: Painting on Meissen Porcelain and German Faience by Adam Friedrich von Löwenfinck 1714–1754
shows a world of colourfully iridescent and fairy-tale mythical creatures.
The exhibition at the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden is accompanied by our publication
Daniel Kruger at Galerie Rob Koudijs
Being born in South Africa where Dutch is still a native language, Daniel Kruger is familiar with the concept of the 'voorkamer' (frontroom). It meant the special room in the house, usually at a farm or mansion, which was only used for entertaining important guests. In this way the FrontRoom at Galerie Rob Koudijs
in Amsterdam supplied not only the title, but also a fitting location to welcome Kruger as a new artist in the gallery.
The presentation proceeds Kruger's retrospective exhibitions in Leipzig, Pforzheim, Hanau and Den Bosch from December 2014 onwards giving an exciting overview of 40 years of his art jewellery. Do not miss to take a glimpse at Daniel Kruger's recently released monograph Between Nature and Artifice!
