Miami, FL 33132

Caribbean: Crossroads of the World will highlight over two centuries of rarely seen works—from paintings and sculptures to prints, photographs, installations, films, and videos—dating from the Haitian Revolution to the present. This exhibition employs an inter-disciplinary approach to advance our understanding of the Caribbean and its artistic heritage and contemporary practices. It focuses on four central themes: Fluid Motions, Counterpoints, Shades of History, and Kingdoms of this World. These interconnected frameworks allow insight into the complex context from which the vital and varied artistic production of the region has emerged, illuminating the multiple histories of the region.

Galerie Chantal Crousel
10, rue Charlot
75003 Paris

Chantal Crousel Gallery is pleased to present two new films by Allora & Calzadilla, co-produced with the Festival d’Automne à Paris.

Apotomē takes as a starting point, a historic attempt, set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, of man trying to communicate and create new relations with animals held in captivity- in this case two elephants, affectionately named Hans and Parkie (or Marguerite), that arrived at the Museum of Natural History in Paris in March 1798 as spoils of war.

BALTIMORE, MD.- The Baltimore Museum of Art is reinstalling its contemporary art wing, which will open in fall 2012 launching a three-year, comprehensive renovation plan leading up to its 100th Anniversary in 2014.

From artdaily.org

INDIANAPOLIS, IN.- Following the success of the U.S. Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia, the 54th International Art Exhibition, the Indianapolis Museum of Art will bring works by the collaborative team Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla to Indianapolis in Spring 2012. The IMA is acquiring Delta (Body in Flight), which will be presented with scheduled performances in the Efroymson Family Entrance Pavilion March 8, 2012, through April 22, 2012.

Body in Flight (Delta) and Half Mast\Full Mast are among the six commissioned works that comprise the U.S Pavilion exhibition Gloria, on view in Venice, Italy, through November 27, 2011. Organized by the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the exhibition employs a variety of artistic practices including sculpture, performance, video, and sound elements that destabilize existing narratives around national identity, global commerce, international competition, democracy, and militarism. To date, more than 280,000 visitors have seen Gloria at the Venice Biennale since it opened in June, and another 69,000 have viewed the exhibition online.

Allora y Calzadilla, Hernan Bas en expo El GRITO / Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León

25 de junio 2011 – 8 de enero 2012

Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León

Avenida de los Reyes Leoneses, 24
24008 León

El título de la exposición evoca este gesto liberador, ya sea como un llamado público que incita a la emancipación política o como una expresión del orden de lo privado que manifiesta un sentimiento en particular, como lo recuerda la emblemática pintura expresionista de Edvard Munch. ¿Cómo identificaríamos hoy en día el gesto artístico en una obra de arte, en una exposición? Aquí no se habla del gesto como la marca que identifica la obra de arte de un artista, sino de la forma en que se expresan y estructuran las preocupaciones y emociones en nuestro tiempo.

Bound for Glory: Cavorting Athletes and Oblique Politics at the Debut of Allora & Calzadilla’s U.S. Pavilion in Venice

By Andrew M. Goldstein

Art Info

June 2, 2011

VENICE—Allora & Calzadilla‘s show for the Venice Biennale‘s United States pavilion has generated a near-deafening amount of buzz since previews began at the international exhibition earlier this week, with its overturned tank-turned-treadmill sculpture outside its entrance emitting a clarion clackety-clack to draw in hundreds of people to wait in line to see what the fuss is all about. This morning, the show — featuring eight professional gymnasts doing routines on replicas of business-class airline seats, an organ/ATM hybrid, and a video filmed on the Puerto Rican island of Vieques — opened to the public with a bang worthy of the buildup: a performance on the tank’s treadmill by Dan O’Brien, the 1996 Summer Olympics decathlon gold medalist once heralded on the cover of Newsweek as “Mr. Olympics.”

Allora & Calzadilla – War Machines (With Gymnasts)

By Carol Voguel

The New York Times

Published: May 12, 2011

ON a nondescript street in Long Island City, Queens, is a mysterious gold-painted door with a drawing of a colorful tent and a sign that reads “Circus Warehouse.” Inside is a cavernous space with a flying trapeze, gymnastic rings and ropes, ballet bars and piles of thick practice mats. It was here on a recent spring morning that about a dozen people were gathered around two pairs of strangely familiar objects: identical models of airline business-class seats, impeccably fashioned in wood. One, an American Airlines design, featured a seat in the upright position, beside it a bed with a meticulously carved imitation of a blanket and pillow.

Allora and Calzadilla: Stop, Repair, Prepare: Variations on “Ode to Joy” for a Prepared Piano

By Marco Antonini

Art Pulse Magazine

Museum of Modern Art – New York
(December 8, 2010 – January 10, 2011)
Ninth in a series of ongoing live and documented performances presented at the MoMA, Stop, Repair, Prepare: Variations on “Ode to Joy” for a prepared piano has been already labeled by many as Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla’s masterpiece. The two artists will represent the United States in the upcoming Venice Biennial and have emerged as one of the most ambitious and interesting voices in the international visual arts scene. Their brand name is usually associated to installations, videos, and performances as emotionally and sensually strong as conceptually and politically loaded. In Calzadilla’s words, “Not making Sense” still remains a top priority on the duo’s agenda, as the playful, absurdist situation created by Stop seems to confirm.

June 4 – November 27, 2011

The Art Newspaper

Puerto Rico-based artist team Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla have been chosen to represent the US in the next Venice Biennale, running from 4 June-27 November 2011. The pair will present six new works in the American pavilion of the Giardini, in a display curated by commissioner Lisa Freiman, chair of the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s contemporary art department.

According to press announcements, Allora & Calzadilla will create new site-specific works that will “analyze contemporary geopolitics through the lens of spectacular nationalistic and competitive enterprises such as the Olympic Games, international commerce, war, the military-industrial complex and even the Biennale itself”.
