MAC International is the MAC's first ever open arts prize, offering professional artists worldwide the opportunity to exhibit in the MAC.
A substantial prize of £20,000 will be awarded to one artist deemed to have made an outstanding contribution to the exhibition. This is the largest art prize in Ireland and one of the few major prizes in the UK.
The exhibition, which runs across all three MAC galleries, will offer you the very best in contemporary visual art across all art forms including sculpture, painting, photography, film, installation and performance.
From Press Release (in Swedish only):
Klara Kristalova, Ulf Rollof, Meta Isaeus Berlin, Olov Tällström, Carin Ellberg, Truls Melin och Marianne Lindberg De Geer – alla representerar de konstnärskap som tog sitt avstamp i det för konstscenen mytomspunna 80-talet. En tid då normen för vad en ”skulptur” skulle vara och se ut löstes upp.
Porcelain sculpture and drawings by the Sweden based artist Klara Kristalova (b. 1967, Czechoslovakia) comprise the fourth RAW exhibition, a series dedicated to supporting women artists through the generosity of the Leonard and SophieDavis/ ML Dauray Arts Initiative. Hovering between fiction and reality, Kristalova gives form to abstract ideas evolving from memories and observations of the human condition. Her expressive characters are both seductive and disarming, reflecting the poignant and sometimes harsh events that make up our lives.
David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of recent and new work by Marcel Dzama, on view at the gallery’s 525 and 533 West 19th Street spaces in New York. The exhibition will mark the United States debut of the artist’s latest film Une danse des bouffons (or A jester’s dance), which will be shown alongside related two- and three-dimensional work.
We are pleased to present Johanna Karlsson’s (b. 1968) exhibition Chapters at ABC – Art Berlin Contemporary 2014. Chapters presents new sculptures and drawings in a spatial installation.
The exhibition "EMPTY VESSELS" by Petra Lindholm contains various interpretations of mountains and people on expeditions. Images of hilly landscapes have been with the artist for quite some time. It started with some negatives she got from her grandfather, shot by a relative about 100 years ago. This lady, the artist’s grandfather’s aunt, took monotonous pictures of the same mountain, over and over again.
In the exhibition HERE/NOW, Artipelag would like to take a stand for the physical meeting between artwork and the viewer. The title of the exhibition refers to artist Barnett Newman’s praised 1948 essay, The Sublime is Now. In the essay, Newman propagates the idea that the meeting between contemplator and artwork should be like a meeting between two people, wherein the relationship is based on a profound dialogue.
