Wayfinding: 100 NYC Public Sculptures

May 14, 2014 - November 15, 2014
Flushing Meadows Corona Park/Queens Museum
New York City Building, Queens, NY 11368

Wayfinding: 100 NYC Public Sculptures is a site-specific project that invites the public to embark on guided journeys through NYC to find public sculptures. ACC Grantee Bundith Phunsombatlert researched all existing public sculptures in New York City and identified 100 sites to be incorporated in his final work. He then created small drawings of each sculpture and developed directional signs and maps that resemble standard U.S. National Park Service signage. The artwork is made up of signage for 100 public sculptures that contain distances drawn from GPS coordinates between each sculpture and the group of wooden posts outside of the Queens Museum at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.

Yokohama Triennale 2014

August 1, 2014 - November 3, 2014
Yokohama Museum of Art
3-4-1 Minatomirai, Nishi-ku, Yokohama

Shinko Pier Exhibition Hall
2-5 Shinko, Naka-ku, Yokohama

ACC Grantee Yuko Mohri assembles castoff umbrellas, old musical instruments, and machine parts to create installations that make subtle noises or humorous movements. In the Triennale, she presents a work based on handmade instruments left behind by a musician who had come to Japan from the United States in the 1950s and died in 2012, recreated as an automatic music generation device in which the sounds produced change over time.

ACC Grantee Masunobu Yoshimura founded the group Neo-Dadaism Organizers in 1960. During the 1960s, he earned accolades for technology-focused work such as Anti-material; Light on Möbius, consisting of light bulbs mounted on a Möbius strip, and showed work at the 1970 Osaka Expo. The Triennale is scheduled to exhibit works including Oh-Garasu (Japanese homonym of “The Large Glass,” and “a big crow”), created for the Fiber Pavilion at the Expo, and Pig; pig’ Lib;, created just after the Expo.

ACC Grantee Emiko Kasahara’s early sculptures questioned women’s role in society, and in recent years she has produced installations dealing with systems defined by society such as gender and religion. For the Triennale, she will present her installation Offering, consisting of photographs from a ten-year project documenting Christian churches and offertory elements throughout the world and sculptures she made on the basis of this field research.

ACC Grantee Miwa Yanagi’s insights into women’s issues, such as gender roles and youth versus age, are expressed dramatically in photographs that utilize computer graphics and special- effects makeup. She participated in the Yokohama Triennale in 2001 and represented Japan at the 2009 Venice Biennale. Since 2010, she has been involved in theater as well, and in this Triennale she presents a mobile stage truck for her new play Nichirin no tsubasa (Wings of the Sun), based on a text by Nakagami Kenji.

Cai Guo-Qiang: The Ninth Wave

August 8, 2014 - October 26, 2014
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM Power Station of Art
200 Huayuangang Road
Huangpu District, Shanghai

The Power Station of Art is proud to present the major solo exhibition Cai Guo-­Qiang: The Ninth Wave by the New York based Chinese-born artist, ACC Fellow Cai Guo-Qiang from August 8 to October 26, 2014 in Shanghai. This will be the first solo exhibition by a living artist at the institution, China’s first publicly funded contemporary art museum.

Cai Guo-­Qiang: The Ninth Wave unapologetically sheds light on one of the greatest challenges faced by mankind: Earth’s current environmental and ecological crisis. Evidenced by the high levels of smog in the air and the incident of 16,000 dead pigs floating down the Huangpu River last year, environmental issues in China—and the world at large—have reached a critical level. Exploring the imminent challenge posed by the environment, the artist references a theme in traditional Chinese aesthetics and philosophy: humanity’s longing to return to a primordial landscape and spiritual homeland.

Pumpkins

September 26, 2014 - December 19, 2014
Victoria Miro Gallery
16 Wharf Road
London, N1 7RW

Victoria Miro is delighted to present a new body of sculptures and paintings by Japanese artist and ACC Grantee Yayoi Kusama dedicated to her iconic depiction of pumpkins.

Since her earliest formative years, in a family who made their living cultivating plant seeds, Kusama has been fascinated by the natural world. She has always had an affinity with nature, particularly vegetal and floral life, but the pumpkin continues to occupy a special place in her iconography and is a motif she has returned to repeatedly throughout her career.The artist has a strong personal identification with the pumpkin, and has described her images of them as a form of selfportraiture. She admires pumpkins for their hardiness and everyday quality, as well as for their unique and pleasing physical qualities.
