Inspired by one of architect Friedrich Weinbrenner’s historical structures, the building, together with its massive root system, quite literally appears to be ripped out of a row of neighboring houses.

Reads Like A Book

January 23rd through March 15th, 2015
CRICOTEKA
ul. Nadwiślańska 2-4, 30-527 Kraków, Poland

Once again Cricoteka presents multimedia and performative artistic strategies, this time focusing on literature. The Book Lovers exhibition strives to prove that literature, when treated by visual artists, can take place well beyond the space of the book. The Book Lovers project investigates the many ways in which artists conceive their novels as part of their art projects. For artists like Jill Magid, Cheng Ran, and Lindsay Seers the novel is not only a literary product of narrative fiction, but they also employ their novels as they would video or installation — as an aspect of a larger work or body of works.

SCAD Museum of Art
Savannah, GA
601 Turner Blvd.

February 17th through May 17th, 2015

The SCAD Museum of Art presents a new site-specific installation by acclaimed artist Michael Lin. Known for his large-scale painting interventions based on vibrantly patterned Taiwanese textiles, Lin’s practice has been hailed as a new approach to contemporary art and the museum through the creation of immersive and experiential environments. His installations challenge notions of art as object based, and skew expectations of the exhibition as an event. Lin expresses interest in relations —between himself as an artist to his environment, and between his work and the audience.
