Joie Iacono’s newest collaboration with Cédrix Crespel, will be on show tomorrow September 19th, through October 19th, 2013 at AD Galerie in Montpellier. Cédrix Crespel exhibits a new series entitled J.O.I.E. The show features 20 large scale oil paintings and an installation depicting sensual images of Crespel’s muse Joie Iacono. With Iacono being an “elegant beatnik from New York’s Downtown scene” and Crespel living and working in Guérande, France – they have maintained an epistolary relationship for around 10 years. Now, through the internet, the two have collaborated to not only create the personal images on display, but to explore 21st century communication.
The Wapping Project Bankside announces the first UK exhibition of Jacqueline Hassink’s acclaimed series View, Kyoto (2004 – 2011) this fall. Dutch visual artist Hassink is well-known for her interest in economic power and the spaces in which it is exercised, and staged. She was recently shortlisted for the prestigious Prix Pictet 2012 and Henri Cartier Bresson Award in 2013. View, Kyoto – Hassink’s most evocative and visually seductive project to date, is a detailed photographic study of some of the most magnificent examples of traditional Japanese gardens surrounding the Buddhist temples of Kyoto. Hassink first visited Kyoto in 2001 and started working on her project in summer 2004. She initially visited 34 gardens, chose 19 and, after difficult negotiations, was allowed to photograph 12. She returned the following years, and, between 2004 and 2011, produced work in around 40 temples. The Wapping Project Bankside is presenting a selection of 10 large scale prints from the series, including works produced in the Hosen-in, Shoden-ji and Ryoan-ji temples of Kyoto, along with a video. Be there today at 18.30 for the private view and get full infos at the link below.

ZINGERpresents will be opening the new season with a two part exhibition by Anglo-Dutch artist Julie Verhoeven entitled “Gluteus Maximus, A Show In Two Parts”. The first instalment is called “Domestic Hiss, a journey into the research of Julie Verhoeven” and focuses on the research that forms the spinal cord to Verhoeven’s work. Through an indexed assortment of source material and drawings the show connects the intellect and the guttural at play in the artist’s embryonic practice.
Greater LA is the first ever survey to take place in New York of art being made in Los Angeles right now, and its massive – but sometimes under-acknowledged – impact on the global stage. Organized by Eleanor Cayre, Benjamin Godsill, and Joel Mesler (a collector, a curator, and a gallerist respectively), Greater LA is the first large-scale exhibition highlighting art being made in Los Angeles right now as a subject worthy of examination. While many of the artists included have exhibited in gallery and museum settings in New York, they’ve never been contextualized as a group that shares, however subtly, an identity based upon their geography. Greater LA aims to be this contextualization, giving physical form to the oft-heard suggestion that the work made today in Los Angeles is some of the best in the World. Works include sculpture, painting, photography, drawing, installation, video and performance; none seen previously and many newly conceived for this exhibition. Artists include: Melodie Mousset, Andrea Longacre-White, Shana Lutker, Liz Glynn, Melanie Schiff, Amanda Ross-Ho, Anna Sew Hoy and many more. Exhibition lasts from Sunday May 15th to Friday June 10th. Check the link below to know more.
