Make Shift
PHI PHI OANH
24 JUN - 27 AUG 2017
FOST GALLERY

Make Shift reflects on the provisionary and temporal nature of life while we bide time for the construction of something more permanent. It explores the intimate and often sub-conscious relationship with our living spaces, particularly in the changing urban landscape, and the ways we exercise our will over them. It also contemplates the possibility of how something that is constructed for expediency can later remain and become permanent.

Join Phi Phi Oanh for a walk-through of the exhibition on Sunday 16 July 2017, 3-4 pm.

CUT UP/CUT OUT
FEATURING BOVEY LEE
30 JUN - 22 OCT 2017
BELLEVUE ARTS MUSEUM, WA, USA


Cut Up/Cut Out, a group show featuring the work of Bovey Lee curated by Bedford Gallery, Lesher Center for the Arts, just begun its national tour at Bellevue Arts Museum. The exhibition features cut and pierced artwork by more than 50 international artists. Using a variety of tools and methods, as well as materials from paper and plastic to metal and rubber, the artists of Cut Up/Cut Out explore the endless possibilities of cutting into and through their chosen surfaces. The transformative nature of this process creates extraordinary results, converting materials from opaque to transparent, from flat to sculptural, from rigid to delicate, and from ordinary to exquisite. The exhibition will travel through the United States until 2020.

ON ADAPTATION!
FEATURING WYN-LYN TAN
09 - 25 JUN 2017
TROMSØ KUNSTFORENING, NORWAY


Tromsø Centre for Contemporary Art hosted the MA graduation exhibition of Tromso Art Academy, class of 2017, featuring works by Robert Julian Badenhope Hvistendahl, Wendimagegn Belete, Cornelius Stiefenhofer and Wyn-Lyn Tan. All the works presented relate to adaptation strategies, either on relation to identity, history and future visions, or perception-based processes. Wyn-Lyn Tan showcased Sea Glass II, an installation of seaweed picked from various shorelines around Tromso. Through a process of cleaning, shaping and drying, the seaweed has been coaxed into a sculptural medium, like coloured glass, thus becoming an epuration of sea grass into semi-precious sea glass.

THE LIBRARY OF UNREAD BOOKS
HEMAN CHONG AND RENÉE STAAL
29 JUN - 26 AUG 2017
MCAD COMMONS, PHILIPPINES


The second iteration of a ten-year-long project, The Library of Unread Books develops from the artists’ deep-seated longing for books. Open to the public, the reference library is made up of donated books that are unread by their previous owners. By receiving and revealing that which people choose not to read, the Library is the result of a collective gesture that traces the perimeters of unwanted knowledge.

Membership to The Library of Unread Books is the cost of one book donation. In donating one of your own unread books, you gain lifetime membership and access to the library which pops up in different institutions across the globe over 10 years, before settling down as part of a collection in a museum.

This exhibition is a voyage of discovery past artworks that prompt viewers to experience this ‘emotional time’ for themselves. Visitors are invited to slow their pace, to come to a standstill, and – if only for moment – to forget about the clock. - See more at: http://www.voorlinden.nl/exhibition/in-the-meantime/?lang=en#sthash.Xw1a96No.dpuf
