BOSI CONTEMPORARY

Marta Jovanović
REPUBLIKA

Curated by: Kathy Battista

January 29 – March 1, 2014

Opening Reception & Book Launch: February 5, 6-9 pm
Panel Discussion: 6:30-7:30 pm

BOSI Contemporary is pleased to announce Republika a solo exhibition by Serbia born performance artist Marta Jovanović. The exhibition will feature selected works created in the past four years and presented for the first time in the U.S. The show will be honoring Jovanović’s artist’s book “Performing the Self” written by Kathy Battista which will be launched in a special event and panel discussion at the gallery.

In her performances, videos, photographs, and installations Jovanović interrogates identity, beauty, and sexuality while revealing a personal history that embarks on her roots and memories. Appropriating the instantly recognizable characteristics of fashion mediums and art trends, the works expose the limitations of the traditional canon of beauty while drawing attention to the fluidity of gender. Curator and author Kathy Battista writes: “She is interested in the legacy of feminism, but she also has deep admiration for her male forebears. Are these contradictory stances? They should not be. For identity today is a shifting and transforming process, rather than a fixed state.”

Taking upon herself various guises such as an enthusiastic Yugoslavian pioneer in “Piornika” or as an alter ego of the famous poet Gabriele D'Annunzio in “Sèlysette”, Jovanović takes risks in performing a complex existence. Jovanović’s works are an invitation to disregard conventional notions of aesthetics and embrace a democratic vision of representation, free from all constraints.

Marta Jovanović (b. 1978, Belgrade, Serbia) is alumna of Tulane University (BA, 2001), Scoula Lorenzo de Medici (Florence, 1999-2000), AIM Program of the Bronx the Bronx Museum (2013) and EMERGENYC (Hemispheric Art institute, NYU, 2013). Her works have been presented in solo and group exhibitions around the globe, in institutions such as G12HUB, Belgrade; Location One, New York; Museo della Civiltà Romana, Rome; and Centre Culturel de Serbie, Paris, among many others. Jovanović is a winner of the Roma Capitale Award (2012) and participated at the Bronx Museum Biennial (2013) as well as the Venice Agendas at the 55th Venice Biennial. She lives and works in New York, Belgrade, and Rome.

The book “Performing the Self,” published in affiliation with The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, CUNY, NY, will accompany the show and will be available for purchase at the gallery.

The exhibition is sponsored in part by DUGGAL VISUAL SOLUTION, NYC.

Istanbul

On the occasion of the 13th Istanbul Biennial and following the protests in Turkey InEnArt presents Urban Voices as a thematic independent project.

Urban Voices opens a critical view on cultural practices and phenomena that expresses the ethos, aspirations, and dreams of a specific population during a well-defined era and that triggered dramatic cultural changes.

Urban Voices is focussing on phenomena that are leaving a lasting impact on mainstream cultural values as the Situationist International did with the practices of drifting and détournemont which finally led to the student protests in 1968.

Within Urban Voice is Place Hacking the more recent challange form of 'drifting' exploring the indefinite urban environment and appropriating it as public space.

The protest culture in Turkey as described with the neologism Çapuling became as well a gobal cultural movement by integrating the unique nature of demonstrations.

Urban Voices shows the artistic reflection of the urban methaphorsis based on topics like culture, politics, social values, gentrification or commercialisation of the society as reflected and debated in the détournemont section.

The InEnArt team and its authors will regularly ad new posts, articels and comments to Urban Voices and will start with a critical debate about it.

January 15 – January25, 2014

Opening Reception: January 15, 2014, 6-9pm

BOSI Contemporary is pleased to announce Love in the 21st Century, an exhibition organized by the Estonian Lithography Center and in collaboration with the Consulate General of Estonia in New York, presenting unique lithographic prints created by eleven renowned Estonian contemporary artists: Kadri Alesmaa, Peeter Allik, Toomas Altnurme, Merike Estna, Kadri Kangilaski, Laurentsius, Marko Mäetamm, Mall Nukke, Reiu Tüür, Jaak Visnap, and Jasper Zoova.

The show will consist of eleven prints, each made specifically by the artists to create a “print portfolio.” These types of portfolios incorporate high-quality works and assume the function of popularizing art as well as stress its educational aspects. Graphics as an art form has always held a strong position in the Estonian context, and print portfolios are regarded as prestigious and independent art objects. By compiling such portfolios, the Estonian Lithography Center has taken on a demanding mission to keep the continuity, to find new forms of artistic communications, and to redefine and reposition graphic art. In these prints the artists remain true to the small-scaled format while experimenting and exploring new ideas and techniques in the democratic spirit graphic art is known for.

The first “Estonian Lithography” portfolio dates back to 2003, and has featured established as well as emerging Estonian artists such as, Lady Evi Tihemets and Marko Mäetamm. The current portfolio is the second one brought forth by the Estonian Lithography Centre, this time embracing a personalized interpretation of the theme: Love in the 21st Century. Love like life, is constantly changing. Love is not only the beauty-glorifying pure feeling between two people; love has countless forms and twists. The experience that every generation of people goes through is similar to that of all the previous generations, yet one thing is certain—each person must rediscover what billions before him already have.

This exciting portfolio became a small portable exhibition, a mobile art project, which had made its debut appearance at the 1st Baltic Biennale in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Videotage is pleased to present the exhibition Squint by the FUSE resident Kenny Wong from January 4th to 31st. Squint is a kinetic light installation consisting of 50 mirrors, inspired by Wong’s curious observation of the sunlight bouncing around in our artificial habitat. Moving through the space and at times capturing the flickers, the audience is guaranteed a playful exploration of the nature of light.
Squint draws from various daily experiences in its abstraction and incites the audience to expand their interpretation of lights and perceived imagination into a non-linear experience. Everyday people are dynamically moving around in the city, sunlight reflects and flickers even when it is indirect and hidden behind objects. As we move, we constantly experience the shift of light intensity, visual patterns and textures. These varieties of light form inspire Wong to explore the potential of light textures, and to select and sort out the combined complexity in urban spaces. In the exhibition space, the mirrors track and reflect lights on the audience’s face with composed patterns of movements. It extends the generated perception by focusing on how lights pass across our visual senses physically, and combines with our perception of images through flickering.
