    Massimo Bartolini: Emscherkunst 2016

    Black Circle Square at Emscherkunst
    Essen, Germany
    4 June – 18 September 2016

    Emscherkunst presents contemporary art in the city and its natural surroundings for the third time in summer 2016. This year it will take place along a 50km-long Art Trail stretching between the cities of Holzwickede, Dortmund, Castrop-Rauxel, Recklinghausen and Herne.

    Borrowing from the Russian-Ukrainian painter Kazimir Malevich, Massimo Bartolini will crease a performative sculpture titled Black Circle Square. With this work Bartolini connects the river, Emscher’s history and the Ruhr areas industrial landscape with Malevich’s works. Bartolini’s sculptural version of the painting Black Circle takes the form of a circular pool on a white plateau.

    Please note that Black Circle Square will open at Emscherkunst in mid-August.

    Dorothy Cross in KALEIDOSCOPE: Mystics and Rationalists

    KALEIDOSCOPE: Mystics and Rationalists
    Modern Art Oxford, Oxford
    11 June – 19 August 2016

    Mystics and Rationalists is the third exhibition in KALEIDOSCOPE, Modern Art Oxford’s year-long 50th anniversary programme, opening to the public on 11 June. KALEIDOSCOPE re-stages moments of the gallery’s past by bringing artworks from the history of the gallery’s acclaimed exhibition programme into a series of evolving thematic displays, which include new commissions and work by a new generation of artists.

    The centrepiece of Mystics and Rationalists is an extraordinary work by artist Dorothy Cross entitled Eye of Shark. This dramatic installation, shown earlier this year at Frith Street Gallery, is made up of twelve cast iron baths and a shark’s eye embedded in the gallery wall. This piece and several other sculptures by Cross are shown alongside works by Karla Black, Daniel Buren, Ibrahim El-Salahi, Dan Graham, Sol LeWitt, Yoko Ono and Amy Sillman.
