SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL

Selected Parkett Artists’ Editions (1984-2014)
Presented by Bice Curiger, Jacqueline Burckhardt, and Dieter von Graffenried

February 15 – May 17, 2014
Opening February 14, 2014, 6-8pm

The exhibition SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL at Parkett’s Space in Zurich presents for the first time eighty small- and miniature-format editions made by artists since the founding of Parkett thirty years ago. The works are often smaller than a hand and rarely larger than a Parkett page. By presenting small objects, photographs, and prints in many media and techniques, the exhibition also explores the meaning of size and dimension in contemporary art and illustrates that inspired work exists independent from scale. To further underline this idea, the display of small works is complemented by the largest work ever made for Parkett, a three-by-seven-meter billboard by Felix Gonzalez-Torres.

On display are silver and gold rings by Jenny Holzer and Rudolf Stingel; Laurie Anderson’s “Hearring”; Sherrie Levine’s children’s shoes; Rebecca Warren’s tiny sculpture; Hiroshi Sugimoto’s miniature seascape photographs; the bronze ear by Christian Marclay; a hand-painted gold coin by Mark Grotjahn; Pipilotti Rist’s screen saver; a hand-sculpted bucket by Peter Fischli/David Weiss; and Pawel Althamer’s portable retrospective of twelve figurines and objects. Also on view are figurative works by Paulina Olowska, Mai-Thu Perret, and Mariko Mori; works on paper by Louise Bourgeois, Vija Celmins, James Rosenquist, and Ellsworth Kelly; and artist booklets by Christian Boltanski and Martin Kippenberger. The exhibition includes early editions for Parkett by Georg Baselitz, Meret Oppenheim, Andy Warhol, Rebecca Horn, and Markus Raetz as well as the most recent projects, by Valentin Carron, Frances Stark, Adrián Vilar Rojas, and Danh Vo.

ABSTRACT - NATURE

Selected Parkett Artists’ Editions (1984-2013)
Presented by Jacqueline Burckhardt, Bice Curiger and Dieter von Graffenried

August 31 – November 30, 2013
Opening August 30, 2013, 6-8pm

In the new exhibition at the Parkett Space in Zürich, works selected from the 220 Parkett Editions to date enter into a lively exchange on the relationship between abstraction and nature. The show presents a playful and compelling dialogue among the works, and viewers will discover astonishing, often unexpected and enlightening relations. For instance, Laura Owens‘ lithograph and the videos created by Diana Thater and Jennifer Allora/ Guillermo Calzadilla meet up with the light of Andro Wekua’s "Black Sea Lamp" and Cerith Wyn Evans‘ neon installation. Doug Aitken‘s shiny silvery kite slices through the atmosphere and Pierre Huyghe‘s melodic edition ushers in meditations on color and shape by Angela Bulloch, Tomma Abts, and Tom Friedman. Works tha t cross the flowing boundary between abstraction and nature in multifarious ways are also on view, as seen in the works of Gabriel Orozco, Yayoi Kusama, Beatriz Milhazes, Matthew Ritchie, Franz Ackermann, Franz Gertsch, Nan Goldin, Thomas Ruff, Oscar Tuazon, and Sue Williams.
