"You expected something.
You expected something else perhaps.
In any case, you expected something.
It may be the case you expected what you are hearing now.
But even in that case you expected something different.“
Peter Handke, Offending the Audience

The selection of works for Zona Maco Sur 2013 are through direct invitation and represent a migration geography shaped by the history of the second half of the twentieth century. The chosen works are linked by their common reference to the historical consciousness formed from the cultural and political movements of this period, and in turn lead to a reflection of the impact of history today.
Curated by Juan Andres Gaitan, Marc Foxx is pleased to present Amalia Pica in our booth.

Review of Guido van der Werve's "Nummer Veertien, home" by Christopher Knight for the Los Angeles Times
By Christopher Knight, Los Angeles Times Art Critic
March 29, 2013, 5:30 a.m.
"Number fourteen, home" is an elaborate video requiem for the dead -- specifically for the great Romantic composer Frédéric Chopin but, by implication, for the entire network of cultural relations that made his work possible.
Dutch artist and composer Guido van der Werve enacts a metaphoric lament for an era that has passed into history. At Marc Foxx Gallery, the 54-minute video screens every hour on the hour.

Marc Foxx Gallery is pleased to announce that Roger Hiorns will be in the 2013 Venice Biennale.
The list of artists for Massimiliano Gioni’s “The Encyclopedic Palace” at the 2013 Venice Biennale has been released. For the full list please visit
The Biennale Site HERE.
The show, which the curator describes here as one about “obsessions and the transformative power of the imagination” consists of 154 artists and five collections of work. Said Gioni: “Blurring the line between professional artists and amateurs, outsiders and insiders, the exhibition takes an anthropological approach to the study of images.”

Opening Reception February 15 from 5 - 8 pm
The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft presents, Louisville born, internationally exhibited, artist Matthew Ronay and his installation, Mounting Toward Zenith / Descending And Disappearing.
This installation from 2008 represents the journey of human life, the birth/death cycle and the desire to retain vitality and expand consciousness throughout the aging process. Drawing inspiration from traditional rituals, totems, sacred spaces and ceremonial costumes, as well as the ideas of psychologist C.G. Jung, Mounting Toward Zenith / Descending And Disappearing generates an experience simultaneously unstructured and inspiring in its visual generosity.

"Matthew Ronay's work has fascinated me for years, and most importantly grown with me over the years, from earlier Marc Foxx shows of fleshy colored MDF forms to recent exhibitions at Andrea Rosen, and La Conserva in Spain. Six months ago on an early Saturday morning, Matthew Ronay and I met up for coffee here in Los Angeles. He spoke of "Between the worlds," an exhibition that was presented in Spain, explaining the women that would come up to the fantastical installation: where gloved hands were reaching through holes, moving balls through fingertips, silently raising eyebrows, as they looked in curiosity."

Playful and celebratory, Pica’s sculpture and works on paper – many of which will be shown in the UK for the first time - explore some of the underlying social concerns that relate to our daily experience of life. Examining the nature of participation and interaction between people, her works have a vitality and hand-made quality, which often belie more complex social relations, in particular the importance of communication and the interaction between individuals.

In a dramatic departure from tradition, The Huntington presents the first exhibition of contemporary paintings and sculpture to be displayed inside the Huntington Art Gallery, showcasing the work of Los Angeles–based artists Lesley Vance and Ricky Swallow. The stately Beaux Arts mansion that was once the home of Henry and Arabella Huntington is renowned for its collection of European art. In “Lesley Vance & Ricky Swallow,” the artists’ contemporary work is placed in the context of the gallery’s Old Master paintings, Renaissance bronzes, 18th-century French decorative arts, and British grand manner portraits.
Approximately nine abstract paintings by Vance and 12 domestic-scale sculptures by Swallow are installed in an upstairs room of the mansion. A number of the works were made especially for the exhibition.

De Hallen Haarlem will be presenting English artist Roger Hiorns’s first solo museum exhibition in the Netherlands. Hiorns gained wide recognition with his spectacular work Seizure (2008): a titillating transformation of a London working-class house, which was nominated for the Turner Prize. For this monumental work he had the house’s entire interior covered with copper sulphate crystals; the visitor entered a sparkling, fairytale world.

"It's hard to keep a house museum from seeming dusty and static, even one as full of surprises -- and British paintings and French porcelain -- as the Huntington mansion. That's one reason why the powers-that-be at the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens have decided to introduce new work by living artists into the mansion for the first time in its 84-year history.
Huntingon curator Catherine Hess and guest curator Christopher Bedford (of the Rose Art Museum) have been working with two L.A. artists, Lesley Vance and Ricky Swallow, to exhibit their art in an upstairs room in the mansion for a show that will open Nov. 10."

"Walking into Roger Hiorns’ installation at Marc Foxx, one feels a bit like a giant, or a god, or perhaps just a passenger in an airplane. On the floor in the center of the room is a barren wasteland of an island, textured like a miniature lunar landscape. The untitled work, which Hiorns has been reprising in various venues since 2008, is eerily compelling in its simplicity, beckoning one to circumnavigate its irregular edges and engendering a sense of wonder at how it came to be there."

The Guardian, U.K.'s Charlotte Higgins reports that the condemned London council flat that Roger Hiorns encrusted in blue crystals will be transported to Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
"In 1993, Rachel Whiteread made a sculpture in the London borough of Tower Hamlets: a cast of a house that captured imaginations, became a cause célèbre, and won her the Turner prize. House was demolished, and lives on only in photographs and the memory of those who saw it.
The same fate, or so it seemed, befell Roger Hiorns' work Seizure – a flat on a condemned London council estate whose every surface he encrusted in a thick, shimmering Yves Klein-blue carapace of copper sulphate crystals.
As work to demolish the flats was about to begin, the work was closed and it seemed its life was over. But, thanks to secret efforts to save it, Seizure will have a fresh existence. The work has been painstakingly removed from south London and, from spring 2013, will go on public display once more; this time at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park."

Cris Brodahl in "Biennial of Painting: The Image of Man" opening July 1, 2012 at the Museum Dhont-Dhaenens, Belgium
BIENNIAL OF PAINTING: THE IMAGE OF MAN
1 July - 30 September, 2012
With work by Francis Alÿs, Karel Appel, Cris Brodahl, Robert Devriendt, Florin Mitroi, Constant Permeke, Elizabeth Peyton, Neo Rauch, Paula Rego & Frits Van den Berghe.
2012 will see the third edition of the Biennial of Painting. This exhibition project arose through the museum operation of both the Roger Raveel Museum and the MDD, which aims to contextualize and update the recent art historical past. Artists represented in the museums’ own collections form the starting point of each exhibition. The purpose of the biennial is to present, every two years, an approach to the painting of the last hundred years, both from a specific perspective and in a subjective way.
