Massimo Vitali
Biography :
Massimo Vitali was born in Como, Italy, in 1944. He moved to London after high school, where he studied Photography at the London College of Printing. In the early Sixties he started working as a photojournalist, collaborating with many magazines and agencies in Italy and in Europe. It was during this time that he met Simon Guttmann, the founder of the agency Report, who was to become fundamental in Massimo's growth as a "Concerned Photographer". At the beginning of the Eighties a growing mistrust in the belief that photography had an absolute capacity to reproduce the subtleties of reality led to a change in his career path. He began working as a cinematographer for television and cinema. However, his relationship with the still camera never ceased, and he eventually turned his attention back to"photography as a means for artistic research". His series of Italian beach panoramas began in the light of drastic political changes in Italy. Massimo started to observe his fellow countrymen very carefully. He depicted a "sanitized, complacent view of Italian normalities", at the same time revealing "the inner conditions and disturbances of normality: its cosmetic fakery, sexual innuendo, commodified leisure, deluded sense of affluence, and rigid conformism".1 Over the past 12 years he has developed a new approach to portraying the world, illuminating the apotheosis of the Herd, expressing and commenting through the most intriguing, palpable forms of contemporary art - Photography. In 1995 he commenced the Beach Series. He lives and works in Lucca, Italy, and in Berlin, Germany. 1995 Begins the Beaches Series 1993 Starts working on large format photography 1989 Director of Photography in Fiction and Advertising Films 1979 Free-lance Photojournalist 1964 London College of Printing, England 1961 Liceo, Milano, Italy 1944 Born in Como Exhibition :

ARMAN
Biography : Regarded as one of the most prolific and inventive creators of the late 20th century, Arman’s vast artistic output ranges from drawings and prints to monumental public sculpture to his famous “accumulations” of found objects. His work—strongly influenced by Dada, and in turn a strong influence on Pop Art—is in the collections of such institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Over the course of his career, Arman had over 600 one-person shows, and was the subject major retrospective exhibitions at the Houston Museum of Fine Art, in 1991, and at the Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume in Paris, in 1998.

Oliver Dorfer confronts us with a retina that reflects a flood of images and represents the darkroom of the mind. A disco ball envelops its surroundings with flickering light, countless, tiny rotating points of brightness transfiguring the space into a surface that reflects our visual world. It is as if we had closed our eyes and all the impressions of the past day are replayed in the form of after- or phantom likenesses. The innumerable mirrors are reminiscent of the compound eyes of bees, which represent the environment as a matrix. 5,000 lenses per eye generate myriads of individual images in the brain, which when combined are comparable with a pixelated facsimile. Dorfer’s field of vision also revolves through 360° but nonetheless focuses on one pictorial area as a palimpset. We are no longer part of the unified aspect of central perspective with its spectator vanishing points and instead are in a multiversum with many centres and parallel worlds. Dorfer has departed from the traditional perspective-based view of space with a fixed and absolute standpoint. His collage-like, pictorial compositions represent an associative chain of pieces of visual scenery from current press photography, cinema, comics and mangas, children’s books and graphic design, as well as musical influences from the world of pop culture. The multiplicity of changing points of view communicates a dynamic vision of space in the fourth dimension that is composed in an interaction with the beholder. Dorfer thereby links modern media techniques with archaic representations of an ethnological origin. His artistic focus questions the various conscious levels of our perception. A process that to some extent involves extremely precise images of objects that he himself has photographed, but also schematic gestalts redolent of dreams, or an alien, surreal world. - Jeanette Zwingenberger
FAILE
Biography : Faile are a New York based collective of artists who are one of the most popular and recognizable international producers of street-displayed artwork. They formed in the late 1990’s from three founding members Patrick McNeil, Patrick Miller, and Aiko Nakagawa. Their first projects on the street had the title A Life, of which their name Faile was an anagram. The name was also an acknowledgement of the inevitable process of deterioration that an artwork suffered when exposed to the elements. Faile take their inspiration from the detritus of city walls, using the decay of advertising and flyposting to provide a platform to present their own take on the world of found imagery. From initially wheatpasting screen printed posters on the streets of New York and major world cities, they progressed to the more permanent medium of stencil graffiti. Their instantly recognisable pop culture images in posters and stencils have allowed Faile to diversify into other areas encompassing fine art, sculpture, design, fashion, music, and housewares. Despite this, the core of their work remains printmaking, stencilling, and painting. In May 2008 they were invited to produce work for the exterior of London's Tate Modern gallery as part of their Street Art exhibition. In 2007 their shows in London and New York sold out instantly.

Allen Jones
Biography : Born in Southampton Allen Jones studied at the Hornsey School of Art (1958/9) and at the Royal College (1959/60) from which he was expelled for 'excessive independence'. Probably on account of his quality, he was contracted to a dealer barely six moths after his expulsion, and from this point onwards his career was assured. One of the most seccesful British Pop artists, his early work explored urban themes. He painted a series of paintings based on red London buses, using shaped canvases to infer movement, his intention not just to portrait the vehicle, but to create a 'red-bus-picture', subject and canvas fused together. From the twisting male and female figures into Surrealist inspired puzzles, reflecting the artist's interest in the physical relationship and the balance of male and female power as explored in the writings of Jung and Nietzsche. This concern with sexuality was to reach its peak in his famous nudes. Taking his images from girlie magazines, and popular fetichism, his pneumatic ladies strut about in leather, stockings and stiletto heel, the embodiment of the pop art lady. Jones experimented with paintings and sculpture, his work both celebrating and parodying these creations of male fantasy. A successful designer for theatre, cinema and television, painting nevertheless remains Jones' dominant interest and his work has been celebrated in many exhibtions throughout the world.

Mona Kuhn
Biography : Mona Kuhn is best known for her large-scale, dream-like photographs of the human form. Her work often reference classical themes with a light and insightful touch. Kuhn’s approach to her photography is unusual in that she usually develops close relationships with her subjects, resulting in images of remarkable naturalness and intimacy, and creating the effect of people naked but comfortable in their own skin. Kuhn was born in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1969, of German descent. She received her BA from The Ohio State University, before furthering her studies at the San Francisco Art Institute in 1996. She is currently an independent scholar at The Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles. Kuhn’s first monograph, Photographs, was debut by Steidl in 2004; immediately followed by Evidence (2007), Native (2010), and Bordeaux Series (2011). Mona's upcoming book is titled Private (release 2014). Exhibition : Mona Kuhn's work has been exhibited and/or included in the collections of The J.Paul Getty Museum, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Pérez Art Museum in Miami, The Museum of Photographic Art in San Diego, The George Eastman House, the Griffin Museum in Boston, Miami Museum of Art, the Cincinnati Art Museum, North Carolina Museum of Art, Georgia Museum of Art, The International Center of Photography in NYC. In Europe, her work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy of Art in London England, Le Louvre in France, Deichtorhallen in Hamburg Germany, Musée de l'Élysée in Switzerland, Centre d'art Contemporain at Musée Chaleroi in France, the Leopold Museum in Vienna Austria, and the Australian Center for Photography in Sydney. Currently, Mona lives and works in Los Angeles.

Cameron Platter
Biography : Cameron Platter was born in 1978, Johannesburg. He graduated with a BFA in painting from the Michaelis School of Fine Art, Cape Town, in 2001. Recent exhibitions include “Impressions from South Africa, 1965 to Now,” Museum of Modern Art, New York; “Rencontres Internationales,” The Centre Georges Pomidou, Paris and Haus Der Kultur, Berlin; Le Biennale de Dakar 2010, Dakar, Senegal; “Coca- Colonization,” Marte Museum, El Salvador; and “Absent Heroes,” Iziko South African National Gallery. He makes stories, pictures, and objects that are documents of contemporary morality; exploring a reality stranger than fiction, through fantasy, satire and subculture, using themes appropriated from the universal concerns of sex, love, violence, beauty, advertising, food, battle scenes, pornography, writing, politics, religion, crime, dancing, lust, greed, things falling apart, and spaceships. Platter fills the ordinary and marginal, with incendiary new meaning. Working from everyday experience with subjects overlooked or considered delinquent, sordid and lowbrow, he reconnoiters notions and concepts on the outside fringes of South Africa’s popular culture. His work appears in the permanent collection of MoMA, New York; The FRAC Centre, Orleans, France; and the Iziko South African National Gallery. His work has been highlighted in The New York Times, Vice Magazine, NKA Journal of Contemporary African Art, Artforum, and Art South Africa.

POSE
Detailed Description :
Named “One to Watch” by CNN in 2015 as part of their international television series that shined a light on up-and-coming creative talent set to be the next big names in culture, modern pop artist, POSE, has been applauded for his inventive ability to take every day, throw-away things and introduce them into the world to communicate something much deeper. While his work relies on harnessing very simple human emotions like love, loss, and triumph, it’s presented in a complex union of vivid colors and layered application which aims for something much more profound than is at the literal, surface level. Having shown works at galleries spanning the globe – including Dubai, London, New York and Los Angeles – his diversity as a visual artist is also apparent on grandiose, outdoor settings on six different continents. His aim to promote community engagement and outreach has received press from the likes of The New York Times, BBC News, Vanity Fair and Forbes - with notable examples including the Bowery/Houston wall in New York City, the Wynwood walls in Miami, and the exterior of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit where he and other artists championed visual expression to empower residents to beautify a neglected American city. “My artwork is pretty cut and dry,” POSE says. “I’m taking from the world around me – whether it be bits of signs, or my wife’s old, childhood books.” His attempt at making sense of the environment around him started with graffiti, and has matured into a body of work with multiple dimensions and layers that are a pop blend of illustration, lettering and comic book aesthetics. “It could be a run down bodega sign I saw on the way to the studio, the way gang graffiti got buffed, watching Dumbo with my daughters in the morning, or a deep seeded memory I’m trying to work through,” POSE says. As his work evolves, so to do POSE’s methods of encouraging people to let their imaginations run w

Simón Vega creates drawings, ephemeral sculptures and installations inspired in the informal, self made architecture found in marginal zones and shantytowns, and more recently also with the nomad, informal carts of the street vendors. These works, elaborated with wood, cardboard, plastic and found materials often parody famous modern and mythological buildings and cities and high-tech robotics developed by NASA.

ABOUT

Austrian Modern Art, Figuration Narative, Pop Art, International Contemporary Art, Emerging Artists
Founded in 1971
Ernst Hilger   Owner
Michael Kaufmann   Director
Dworczak Katrin-Sophie   Director
Galerie Ernst Hilger at Dorotheergasse 5 in Vienna’s 1st district represents the works of artists such as Erró and Mel Ramos, along with exponents of Austrian modernism from the 1960s onward and the main exponents of the most important international art movements of the 20th century – from Pablo Picasso and Jean Dubuffet to Pop Art artists like Andy Warhol and Keith Haring through to Narrative Figuration (Jacques Monory). Ernst Hilger was the head of the FEAGA for several years and member of numerous art fair committees including Art Basel; he acted as the longest-serving president of the Austrian Gallery Association and was instrumental in establishing the present conception of the role of galleries as partners of museums, collectors and representatives of the state. The roster of represented artists reflects the long history of the gallery.

Nonetheless, the past is always succeeded by the future and with artists like ERRÓ, Jean Jacques LEBEL and Jiri KOLAR representing one of the gallery’s major areas of commitment, Galerie Ernst Hilger is now taking further steps presenting artists like Damien HIRST with works on paper, while a unique place will always be reserved for the Austrian Moderns beginning with the 1960s. Pioneering cooperations within Austria with various industries (Paylife, Siemens, Austrian Airlines, Unicredit, 98,3 Superfly.fm) did not only purpose commercial reasons but also led to numerous new collections and new collectors – vital for the entire art scene at the present time – as well as creating new venues to promote art. In the last 15 years the activities of the gallery, together with curators like Shaheen MERALI, Claire BREUKEL, Diana WIEGERSMA, Maria VASSILEVA, Alenka GREGORIC, Jeanette ZWINGENBERGER and others, has expanded to include new emerging art scenes and markets like Iran, Africa and South America.

Hilger NEXT assembles those positions and provides artists from cutting-edge countries with a platform. The gallery’s labor has been rewarded through the participation of its artists in important international exhibitions and biennales over the past years:
Anastasia KHOROSHILVA in a group show at Palais de Tokyo (F) and her Collateral Event at the Venice Biennale 2011 (I), Cameron PLATTER in an exhibition on South Africa at the MOMA (USA), ASGAR/GABRIEL solo show in the Mannheimer Kunstverein (D) and the Kunsthalle Brandts (DK), or Sarah RAHBAR, an Iranian-born artist living in New York whose work was part of elles@pompidou, Erik BINDER at the Biennale di Venezia 2001, Ivana FRANKE at the Biennale di Venezia 2007, Ivan MOUDOV at the Biennale di Venezia, Miha STRUKELJI at the Biennale di Venezia 2009, Anastasia KHOROSHILOVA at the Biennale Venice 2011, Ángel MARCOS, Simon VEGA, and Cameron PLATTER at the Biennale di Venezia 2013. HILGER NEXT enjoys the discovery and growth of the represented artists.

In order to extend and strengthen the cooperation with international exhibition venues and museums the HilgerBROTKunsthalle was inaugurated in 2009. This space with its 800m² represents the gallery's laboratory for curatorial projects and influences and supports all involved partners. Three guest apartments for visiting and working artists and curators have been instrumental in bringing our exhibition projects to other institutional locations, while also attracting international collectors who have visited and acquired works – among others Harald FALCKENBERG, Jorge PEREZ, the Photography Collection of the Qatar Museum Authority, Darga JAIS (Bali), Sutomo SUPRAJITO (Indonesia), the Collection NADOUR www.brotkunsthalle.com. Cooperations have included the Museum of Modern Art El Salvador, the Margulies Collection, the Mestna Galleria Ljubjana, the Museum of Modern Art Bukarest (Lara BOUBNOVA), the City Gallery Sofia, the MMoMA Moscow. All these institutions have shown exhibitions created with and presented at HilgerBROTKunsthalle.

In Winter 2014 Ernst Hilger opened his fourth gallery space at MANA Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ, USA. In this former tabacco warehouse, the large scale exhibition space was inaugurated with a highly successful retrospective of ERRO, followed by a group show of installative works by Ian Burns, Clifton Childree and Simόn Vega.
