A Tribute to Franz West: Part One

Read More  |  2.06.19  |  Article by Philippa Snow  |  Art, culture, Magazine  |  MM15

The Nineties brought Austrian artist Franz West (1947-2012) international recognition. He playfully manipulated everyday materials to call attention to the way in which art is presented to the public, and how viewers interact with works of art, and with each other. Our 15th Issue is an appreciation of the artist, featuring WORK, WRITINGS, press clippings, ADAPTIVES, a look at the retrospective at the Centre Pompidou, HANS ULRICH OBRIST and FRANZ WEST in conversation, & MORE.

Modern Matter's latest issue, REMASTERED, is out now.

Speaking of Black Dada

Read More  |  7.11.18  |  Article by Mazzy-Mae Green  |  Art, culture  |  MM13

New-York based artist Adam Pendleton is best known for the fluidity of his practice; his work moves between painting, publishing, collage and video. He engages with the visual and semiological impacts of language, and uses it to re-contextualise and re-appropriate history, in order to provide alternative means of displaying it, and open people’s minds to the existence of these possibilities. Once the discussion has been opened, one can consider the different facets of a story, and how to decipher and decide what is seen and understood as the truth.

An exhibition of works by Adam PENDLETON is on view at Pace Gallery, London, until 9th November.

Disrupting Conventional Spaces

If the wall stands as an emblem of simplicity, it follows that something must exist at the opposite end of the spectrum. German artist Felix Schramm thinks so; he sees perception as a straight line that is capable of being manipulated, and achieves this end by reinterpreting traditional architectural forms, disrupting white gallery walls with jagged, technicolour structures.

Felix Schramm on messing with people’s preconceptions of space and sculpture.
