With an output ranging from drawing and sculpture to film, architecture and more recently NFT, Daniel Arsham is a truly cross-disciplinary artist. Taking iconic objects from the millennial age as a starting point and rendering these in geological materials such as crystals and volcanic ash, he creates sculptures that seem familiar yet alienating.
Daniel Arsham (US, 1980) is based in New York. His work has been shown at PS1, New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami; The New Museum, New York; The Athens Biennale, and Carré d’Art de Nîmes. Recent exhibitions include The Strand, London, Musée Guimet, Paris, and HOW Museum, Shanghai.
Anthony Goicolea is best known for his elaborately staged photographs, video works, and layered drawings on Mylar paper that examine issues of identity. His Anonymous Self-Portraits drawings eschew traditional portraiture and render identity through coded body language, gesture, and performance. Figures simultaneously reveal and conceal themselves as they push against the architectural boundaries of their vestments.
Anthony Goicolea (US, 1971) is a mixed-media artist based in Brooklyn. He has exhibited widely, notably at the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, Illinois; the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the International Center of Photography, New York and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid. Goicolea’s art is held in many public collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and MoMA, New York.
Isaac Julien CBE RA is a filmmaker and installation artist based in London. His multi-screen film installations and photographs incorporate different artistic disciplines to create a poetic and unique visual language. His series of photo collages Radioactive is based on his 2004 film with the same title, in which he explores the main character’s ‘mixed-race’ of human and technological origins. In his photos from A Marvellous Entanglement (2019), Julien reflects on the modernist architecture of Lina Bo Bardi and her approach to Brazilian culture.
Isaac Julien (UK, 1960) has previously exhibited at venues including Museum of Modern Art, New York, Art Institute of Chicago, Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, MAXXI, Rome, Tate Britain, LACMA, Los Angeles, and Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. He was awarded the title Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the Queen’s birthday honours, 2017 and made a Royal Academician in 2018.
Remy Jungerman’s sculptures, installations, panels, collages and screen-prints trace pathways of patterns from Maroon culture in Suriname, the African Diaspora, and the visual idiom of 20th-century Modernism. He is looking for an autonomous visual language by initiating a dialogue between abstract geometric patterns drawn from a multiplicity of visual traditions.
Jungerman’s (SR, 1959) work can be found in numerous institutions and collections, including Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam; Kunstmuseum Den Haag; Art in Embassies, US Department of State, Suriname, and the Rennie Collection, Vancouver. This year he had a solo exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and is part of exhibitions at Kunstmuseum Den Haag, and in 2023 at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg.
Hans Op de Beeck
Hans Op de Beeck produces large installations, sculptures, films, drawings, paintings, photographs, and texts. His work is a reflection on our complex society and the universal questions of meaning and mortality that resonate within it. He regards man as a being who stages the world around him in a tragi-comic way. Above all, Op de Beeck is keen to stimulate the viewers’ senses and invite them to really experience the image. He seeks to create a form of visual fiction that delivers a moment of wonder and silence.
Hans Op de Beeck (BE, 1969) is based in Brussels. Previous solo shows were held at MOCA Cleveland; Sammlung Goetz, Munich and Tampa Museum of Art. The artist has participated in group shows at Royal Museum of Fine Arts, Brussels; PS1, NY; Centre Pompidou, Paris; The Reina Sofia, Madrid; ZKM, Karlsruhe; MACRO, Rome; the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London and many more.
Bouke De Vries
Bouke de Vries is best known for his tactile, poetic sculptures in ceramics. He studied design and has a background in ceramics restoration. In his work, construction and deconstruction are two sides of the same coin. Taking fractured ceramics from different cultures and traditions (such as Delft, Royal Worcester, Kangxi, Kintsugi, and Sèvres), he transforms them into new and unimaginable assemblages.
Bouke de Vries (NL, 1960) has exhibited internationally at venues like The Frick Pittsburgh; Kunstmuseum Den Haag; Museum Beelden aan Zee; Somerset House, London, and many others. His work can be found in numerous public collections including the National Museum of Norway; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Museum Voorlinden, and the Princessehof National Museum of Ceramics.
Levi van Veluw
In his recent work, Levi van Veluw investigates the relation between the rational, the spiritual and the material. Even if spirituality is ultimately immaterial, most people practice their faith in places of worship, using sacred objects and performing holy rituals. What is this human desire to add a tangible dimension to faith? Where does idolatry begin?
The work of Levi van Veluw (NL, 1985) is collected by numerous museums in the Netherlands. He created installations for clients such as Hermès, and for institutions including Marres, Maastricht, Museum Het Hem, Zaandam, Tenuta Dello Scompiglio, and Domaine de Kerguéhennec. His work is part of the collection of the Borusan Collection, Istanbul; Museum Voorlinden, Wassenaar, and Museum MORE, Gorssel.
