Tiffany Chung and Sandrine Llouquet at KENPOKU ART, Ibaraki prefecture, Japan: September 17 – November 20, 2016

Northern Ibaraki Prefecture, home to six regional cities and the venue for KENPOKU ART 2016, is a place of fascinating contrasts. Richly endowed with nature, the combination of scenic ocean and mountains lend it a truly unique atmosphere. Life is rooted in traditional culture and society, but the region, located just outside the metropolis of Tokyo, is close enough to feel the latest technology and culture.

KENPOKU ART 2016 is an international art festival that highlights the spirit of innovation in Ibaraki and focus on collaboration between art and cutting-edge science and technology while engaging in dialogue with nature. The organizers believe that it is art that makes the integration of nature, science and technology, and humanity possible; and only art can reveal a new vision for the future by bringing together diverse knowledge and creative minds, encouraging collaboration beyond individual fields of work and activities rooted in community, and imparting philosophical perspectives and the joy of living.

Artists showing at KENPOKU ART 2016 include Tiffany Chung, Sandrine Llouquet, Zadok Ben-David, Daniel Buren, Ilya & Emilia Kabakov, Tea Mäkipää, Sudsiri Pui-Ock, amongst others.

Tiffany Chung at the SMK, Copenhagen, Denmark: September 10 – November 6, 2016

The SMK focuses on refugees, borders, asylum seeking, displacement and migration this autumn, showing a three-part exhibition curated by CAMP/Center for Art on Migration Politics.

The exhibitions, including Tiffany Chung’s solo exhibition from the mountains to the valleys, from the deserts to the seas: journeys of historical uncertainties (originally shown at CAMP in 2015), will be supplemented by a range of activities such as talks, guided tours, performances, meetings and discussions that address issues and experiences related to the themes.

Tiffany Chung at Taipei Biennial 2016, Taiwan: September 10, 2016 – February 5, 2017

With contributions from more than eighty artists, the Taipei Biennial 2016 presents a rich, five-month long artistic program interweaving exhibitions, performances, screenings, symposiums, readings, conferences, and workshops in ongoing collaborations with various cultural and educational Taiwanese institutions.

Gestures and Archives of the Present, Genealogies of the Future aims to explore the museum’s catalytic role in navigating between knowledge systems and in the experience of trans-artistic practices and research in societal configurations that take into consideration cultural paradigm shifts. Treating the biennial as a matrix, an organic whole with its various forms, intensities, rhythms, and traces, it engages “performing the archives, performing the architecture, performing the retrospective” and the invention of narrative apparatuses and reflexive images in relation to artistic productions and practices of thought with a firm grip on historical conditions and realities, which play along with or resist realities to come, or whose advent is impossible.

Christine Nguyen at New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, New Mexico, US: September 8 – December 21, 2016

GEOMAGIC: Art, Science and the Zuhl Collection is an interdisciplinary exhibition that creates a visual laboratory and educational space unifying contemporary visual art, geology, and other natural sciences into a hypothetical space. GEOMAGIC creates a platform to explore ontological responses to spirituality, technology, and anthropogenic geological concerns of preservation in relation to the natural environment.

The exhibition pairs works from the Zuhl collection, a Wunderkammer-like collection of over 1,800 specimens of petrified wood, fossils and minerals on the campus of New Mexico State University, with contemporary artists, who within their practice, utilize various mediums that resemble, echo, and mimic the geological to explore our ever-evolving scientific and technological landscape.

Featured artists include Christine Gray, Jason Middlebrook, Megan Harrison, Amy Brener, Laura Moriarty, Katie Paterson, Emily Nachison, Christine Nguyen, Andrew Yang and Ryan Thompson.
