Esther Schipper gallery is very pleased to announce the opening of its first location in Asia this September, headed by chief executive director Sunil Kim.

“We have had the unique opportunity to grow along with the development of the Korean art community and as a gallery we will be celebrating the launch of our first location in Korea with a unique project space in the Gyeonglidan neighborhood of Seoul. This opening coincides with two international art fairs taking place in Seoul at the beginning of September: Frieze Seoul and KIAF. At KIAF we are presenting a solo booth with Roman Ondak’s historical performative work Clockwork and an updated survey of our gallery artists for the first edition of Frieze Seoul.”
—Sunil Kim

Esther Schipper Seoul is situated in the Geyonglidan-street area of central Seoul in a newly renovated building designed by studioMDA. The Gyeonglidan area has recently emerged as a central hub for the Korean art scene with both international and emerging Korean contemporary galleries relocating here. For the opening, a selection of new and important works by artists of the gallery is presented across the three floors of the building.

Opening Friday, September 9, 6–9pm

Esther Schipper is pleased to announce a special presentation with historical works by Jacques Douchez and Norberto Nicola, organized with Olivier Renaud-Clément. Jacques Douchez and Norberto Nicola operated a collective studio, Atelier Douchez-Nicola, from 1959-1980. Inspired by tapestry as a three-dimensional form that combines finely woven natural fibers with abstract sculptural forms, their collaborative and independent textile work marks a key chapter in Brazilian art history.

September 10 – 18, 2022

A solo presentation by Isa Melsheimer at K60 will include large-scale ceramics, textile works, and gouaches. The ceramics draw on existing buildings and fill these architectural structures with unexpected sculptural details and colorful glazes that evoke fantastic microcosms, a world in which it is not at all surprising that tree stumps grow in houses and buildings incorporate human and non-human elements.

Etienne Chambaud

On occasion of Paris+, we are happy to present an exhibition by Etienne Chambaud in our new space in Paris. On view will be a sound installation, sculptures and glass works.

Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster

Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster's exhibition Panoramism and the Abstract Sector will feature a new panorama based in Berlin, continuing the artist’s creation of an artistic and intellectual genealogy, begun at the Vienna Secession in 2021 and at the Serpentine Galleries this past Spring.

In addition, Paul B. Preciado and Gonzalez-Foerster’s Une Valise Transféministe, first presented at the Centre Pompidou in Paris in 2019, will be on view in the bookstore.

September 2–6, 2022

For KIAF 2022, Esther Schipper is pleased to present a solo booth with Roman Ondak, dedicated to his work Clockwork, 2014.

A performative work, Clockwork, first presents as a red Mason line (used in construction to level) that spans the entire space. Its two ends meet near a corner, weighted with plumb bobs, marking the spot where a list of visitors will begin. During the course of the exhibition an attendant poses two questions to each visitor—“What time is it?” and “what is your name?”—and inscribes this information on the wall. The index of attendees becomes an ongoing work, observed by subsequent visitors who themselves will be added.

Benjamin Meyers’ work Serious Immobilities is part of the Summer Festival celebrations on September 17th.

Jean-Pascal Flavien’s Make-up House is scheduled to open around the same time, at near-by San Gimignano Lichtenberg, Arno Brandlhuber’s architectural site. Flavien’s project will include collaborations with Bless, Sam Chermayeff, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Karl Holmqvist, and Christopher Roth.

At Aranya Art Center in Beidaihe in China's Hebei Province, Tao Hui presents Searing Pain, the artist's first comprehensive solo museum exhibition. Searing Pain surveys the first decade of Tao’s career, focusing on his groundbreaking videos and installations. This exhibition will include 18 works made between 2013-2022 and is organized by Damien Zhang, director of Aranya Art Center, with the assistance of Wang Jiaming.

Rosa Barba’s solo exhibition in Tours at CCCOD, the Centre de création contemporaine Olivier Debré, unfolds in two spaces of the art centre. In the nave, Barba has conceived an in situ project, linked to the research she carried out during her recent residency at the Atelier Calder in 2021. The second part of the exhibition takes place in the black gallery and immerses us in a cinematographic space mixing images and sculptures in movement.

In New York, Ecce Homo: The Drawings of General Idea opens at the Drawing Center which, in partnership with Musée d’art moderne et contemporain Geneva (MAMCO), will bring together for the first time in the United States, and again in Geneva in February 2023 the drawings authored by General Idea between 1985-1993.

A major solo exhibition by Julia Scher at the Kunsthalle Zürich will present important historical works and new iterations. A catalogue surveying Scher’s practice is forthcoming from Distanz Publishers in early 2023.

Etienne Chambaud is presenting a solo exhibition at Lille’s Musée LAM, the musée d'art moderne, where a large selection of new and important works by the artists will be on view. A comprehensive catalogue on Chambaud's practice will be published on occasion of the exhibition.

At the Bourse de Commerce, Anri Sala will have a solo presentation, presenting Time No Longer, 2021, a video here projected onto vast, curved screens—perfectly marrying the Rotunda's cylindrical forms. In addition, iconic pieces by the artist taken from the Collection will be on view, among them Take Over, 2017, and 1395 Days Without Red, 2011, throughout the museum.

Also in Paris, Ugo Rondinone’s solo exhibition the water is a poem unwritten by the air
no. the earth is a poem unwritten by the fire opens at the Petit Palais.

On Fogo Island, Liam Gillick’s A Variability Quantifier (aka The Fogo Island Red Weather Station) is an artwork intended to function as an operational weather station on Fogo Island. Launching in October, it gathers local weather data and is a place for education, reflection, and discussion. Acquired by the National Gallery of Canada as part of its National Outreach, the work will be displayed on Fogo Island through October 2026 and will be open to the public to visit and use.

It tells the story of the Kurdish family Bingöl, whose homeland was flooded by a Turkish water dam project that displaced its members between Istanbul, Paris and the road. The work will also be featured at LOOP in Barcelona.

In London’s Paddington Square, a new piazza space between Praed Street and Paddington Station, Ugo Rondinone unveils a public commission. This artwork will be a new site-specific five-metre bronze sculpture, the artist’s first public realm commission in London and one of three new permanent public artworks at Paddington Square.

Anri Sala will have a solo exhibition at Winsing Art Place in Taipei where a special presentation of AS YOU GO, 2019, his multi channel video and sound installation will be on view.
