"Artadia: American Season 2004"
2004-02-14 until 2004-04-17
Berlin, , DE Germany

momentum, as an emerging gallery with a focus on the artistic dialogue between Berlin and the US, presents Artadia @ momentum as part of the American Season 2004. Contemporary art from the US will be the focus of the exhibition which features five grant recipients of Artadia: The Fund for Art and Dialogue (New York). Artadia is a non-profit organization, which supports individual artists in selected cities throughout the US. Artadia encourages artists in their local communities, by providing unrestricted grants as well as a network of support that includes: curators, collectors, artists and art professionals. Artadia seeks to enrich dialogue between artists and their community and broaden their exposure by providing a national and international platform.

The variety of the artistic practices demonstrated in Artadia @ momentum illustrates Artadia‚s broad range of funding. Nick Brown is interested in the relation of time, space, memory and perception; Brown will show silhouettes presenting the various apartments of his restless childhood. Angelina Gualdoni examines in her paintings the relationship of utopian architecture in deconstruction with the surrounding nature. Trenton Doyle Hancock creates a personal mythology, a private cosmos with his graphics showing various animals. Rachael Neubauer‚s plastic objects irritate the spectator, refusing all readability; they may be anthropomorphic as well as technological and impress with their cool aesthetics. Anne Wilson, who will show video stills, uses in her works found materials like hair, lace, sheets and paper. Her topics are sexuality, death, ritual and decorum. Before the opening Amada Cruz, Director of Artadia, will give a talk on the five Artadia grant recipients and will discuss Artadia‚s funding concept. The Artists Nick Brown and Rachael Neubauer will also be present. In addition to the work from Artadia artists, momentum presents New York-based artist collaborative Lansing-Dreiden, who will present video work which was recently exhibited at the New Museum of Contemporary Art (New York).

In 2004 momentum will present an ambitious programme with a special focus on photography. The second show of the year ( April 22 - June 5) will be dedicated to photo journalism constrasting the oevre of Erich Andres (Leipzig 1905-1992 Hamburg) with the work of a contemporary photo journalist. From June to August an exhibition with drawings and silhouettes by Veronika von Otten and Nadja Schöllhammer will follow. Further more there will be an exhibition with young German photography.
