For this collaboration, she invited artists to select films and video works that have both been influential to their own thinking and that also draw connections with Raven’s film Ready Mix (2021). These selections will culminate in a series of screenings, the first two of which will be hosted by Le Cinéma Club.    The first guest artist was Michael Snow, whose film selection was available until September 16.   The second guest artist was Sharon Lockhart, whose film selection was available until September 23.The final event in the series is a live screening of Joris Ivens’s New Earth (1933), and Yuyan Wang’s All Movements Should Kill the Wind (2019), selected by guest artists Vic Brooks and Evan Calder Williams. This screening has been postponed, with a new date to be announced in the coming weeks.  Le Cinéma Club TURE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=DAILY; Film Club

German Minimalism Symposium

12/11/2021 13:30 12/11/2021 15:30 Europe/London German Minimalism Symposium Event DetailsFriday, November 12, 2021, 12:30–2:30 pm, Dia Chelsea and Dia Online Dia Chelsea 537 West 22nd Street New York, New York Register for the in-person event here Register for the online event here. On the occasion of Dia Beacon’s simultaneous presentation of works by Imi Knoebel, Charlotte Posenenske, and Franz Erhard Walther, this two-hour event brings together a new generation of artists and scholars to reconsider the classification of “German Minimalism,” a term that has been used to describe artistic practices that emerged in West Germany in the mid-1960s. Reflecting conceptual engagement—and sometimes direct points of contact—with Minimalist art from the US, Knoebel, Posenenske, Walther, and many of their peers employed industrial materials and processes, a reduced geometric vocabulary, the serial repetition of forms, and an emphasis on the embodied relationship to sculpture. However, their work can also be distinguished in various ways from US Minimalism, which has traditionally been understood via the abstract theoretical discourse of phenomenology. Expanding beyond simple morphological comparison, this symposium considers defining features of Knoebel, Posenenske, and Walther’s practices that depart from United States models. By inviting a panel comprised of art historians and practicing artists to reflect on these concerns, the symposium seeks both an alternative historical view on German art of the 1960s and a new understanding of its relevance to artistic practices today. Speakers include Gordon Hall, Hanna B. Hölling, Colin Lang, Gregor Quack, Michael Sanchez, and Sung Tieu, with moderator Ian Wallace, 2020–21 Andrew M. Mellon Curatorial Fellow at Dia Art Foundation. Participants  Gordon Hall is an artist based in New York. Hall has exhibited and performed at, among others, Art in General, Brooklyn Museum, Movement Research, Socrates Sculpture Park, The Drawing Center, and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Hanna B. Hölling is associate professor of the history of art at University College London and research professor at Bern University of the Arts, Switzerland. Her research, publications, and teaching focus mainly on the philosophy and theory of conservation, and art and material culture since the 1960s. Colin Lang is an art historian, critic, and editor living in Berlin. He received his PhD in art history from Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut in 2010.  Gregor Quack is an art critic, curator, and Phd candidate at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. His dissertation in progress focuses on the work of Franz Erhard Walther. Michael Sanchez is an art historian living in New York. He received his PhD in art history from Columbia University, New York in 2016. Sung Tieu is an artist based in Berlin. Her work has been exhibited at international venues including Haus Der Kunst, Munich (2020), Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham (2020), and Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig (2021), and is currently on view at Kunstmuseum Bonn. Ian Wallace is a writer, curator, and art historian based in New York. He received his PhD in 2021 from The Graduate Center of the City University of New York, where his dissertation addressed the institutional “rediscovery” of Charlotte Posenenske. Wallace was the 2020–21 Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellow at Dia Art Foundation.  Schedule  12:30–12:40 pm            Welcome and introductory remarks                                     Ian Wallace 12:40–12:50 pm            Gregor Quack 12:50–1 pm                  Hanna B.

Register for the launch event here.   eagles with eyes closed is a musical project consisting of Tobias Linklater (Alutiiq/Omaskêko Cree), and Duane Linklater (Omaskêko Cree), which explores the generative experience of watching films together as intergenerational collaborators, as father and son, and as two Indigenous artists. Their methodology of simultaneous watching and playing back to the image with various instrumentations and processes, improvisations, and a careful non-diegetic Indigenous positionality results in complex propositions to the selected films and images and to the audience itself.  eagles with eyes closed is an articulation of their love (indifference) for art, film, and music. eagles with eyes closed are two generationsssss listening at the past present and future.  eagles with eyes closed will be presenting a new score for Nancy Holt’s seminal film Sun Tunnels (1978).   Tobias Linklater (Alutiiq/Omaskêko Cree) was born in 2004 and lives in North Bay, Ontario. He is a senior student at West Ferris Secondary School in North Bay, Ontario. His short films have been included in exhibitions at Trinity Square Video, Toronto (2020); All My Relation Arts, Minneapolis, Minnesota (2017); and 80WSE Gallery, New York (2016­–17). His video Origin of the Hero (2016) is in the permanent collection of the Tate Modern, London. Duane Linklater (Omaskêko Ininiwak from Moose Cree First Nation) was born in 1976 and lives in North Bay, Ontario. His practice explores the physical and theoretical structures of the museum in relation to the current and historical conditions of Indigenous peoples, their objects, and approaches to materials. He articulates his explorations through sculpture, photography, film and video, installation, and text works. He has presented solo exhibitions at the Frye Museum, Seattle (2021); Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University, Lansing, (2017); 80WSE Gallery, New York (2016–17); Mercer Union, Toronto (2016); Utah Museum of Fine Arts, Salt Lake City (2015); and Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia (2015). Linklater has been featured in group exhibitions, most recently at SFMOMA, San Francisco (2019); Artists Space, New York (2019); and Taipei Biennial (2019).    Dia Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY eagles with eyes closed for the sun tunnels
