On Wednesday April 8 2015 at 7pm Hangar Bicocca will open “Double Bind & Around”, the first solo exhibition in Italy dedicated to Juan Muñoz, curated by Vicente Todolí. The artist, who died in 2001, was one of the leading exponents of European sculpture of the last two decades of the 20th century. On the occasion of the exhibition, HangarBicocca is showing his most important work, Double Bind, which was made in 2001 for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern in London and never exhibited to the public afterwards. The exhibition also includes some of his most significant works, including The Wasteland and Many Times, making this an important opportunity to grasp the work of a great artist who reinterpreted the tradition of classic sculpture on the basis of 20th century avant-gardes.

The Argentinian artist Adrián Villar Rojas (b 1980) is known for his often monumental works in clay and other organic materials that are allowed to change and disintegrate over time. In addition to sculpture and installation, he also uses photography, drawing and moving images. Villar Rojas explores temporality and he is inspired by ideas from the natural sciences, popular culture, theories of evolution, science fiction and the performing arts.

It has come to our attention that an untrue story is circulating about Danh Vo. We feel these unfounded accusations urgently need to be addressed. Please find here a statement from Mr. Vo.
Cordially, Marian Goodman
Statement from Danh Vo
Danh Vo and Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi confirm their involvement in legal proceedings with Bert Kreuk.
Danh Vo participated in Kreuk’s exhibition "Transforming the Known", at the Hague’s Gemeentemuseum. Contrary to Kreuk's claim, a work was delivered by Danh Vo for the exhibition ‘Transforming the Known’ and displayed as part of the show.
The work was provided to the Gemeentemuseum under a signed loan agreement between Danh Vo and the Gemeentemuseum only. After the exhibition closed, Kreuk took it upon himself to intercept the Museum loan and block the return of Vo’s work from the Gemeentemuseum, by taking out an injunction that prevented the work from being transported back to Danh Vo. 12 months on, Danh Vo is still waiting for his artwork to be rightfully returned to him.
Contrary to Kreuk's claim, no sale of an artwork was conducted either by Danh Vo or Galerie Bortolozzi for this exhibition.
When requested by the courts to do so, Kreuk has been repeatedly unable to produce any proof indicating the existence of a purchase contract with Vo or Galerie Bortolozzi for the work that Kreuk claims. As there is no purchase agreement with Kreuk with regard to the claimed artwork, Danh Vo and Galerie Bortolozzi are confident that they will prevail in the legal proceedings.
Please note: If this Statement is to be published, it must be published in its entirety.

Cristina Iglesias: Tres Aguas
26 April 2014 - ongoing
Various locations in Toledo, Spain
Toledo stands above the fast flowing waters of the River Tagus. Its waters were drawn up by the first communities into their fountains, cisterns and baths, and so the settlement flourished.
In making Tres Aguas – A Project for Toledo, her most ambitious work to date, Cristina Iglesias drew from the cultural history of the city, its mingling and layering of Muslim, Jewish and Christian communities who lived alongside each other for centuries in the period known as "La Convivencia" or The Co-existence. The three sculptural works that make up the project bring water to the fore; it courses through channels and travels back into the ground after animating the surfaces of the works so they come to resemble the overgrown bed of some ancient river. Visitors are taken on a journey through the city as they visit each work, from a mudéjar water tower to the city's main public space and then onto a hidden location within a convent, a place not normally open for visitors.
Conceived as a journey into the heart of the city, Iglesias' project aligns the hard materials of architecture and the fluidity of water to deliver a sequence of large-scale sculptural works that bring the river back into the body of this historic city.
For further information, please visit Cristina Iglesias: Tres Aguas to view images, video, and additional information.
