A collage by Bjorn Braun on view at the Kunsthaus Baselland

Björn Braun

Kunsthaus Baselland, Basel, Switzerland

May 17 – July 7, 2019

Embracing the accidental and the uncontrolled, as well as an approach that enters into a poetic and creative dialogue with nature, Braun creates immersive objects and collages as well as video installations that reflect his open attitude. For this he draws from materials such as industrially produced fabrics as much as he does from materials he finds in nature or which are produced by nature. This very potential to transform raw materials into novel, poetic and sometimes mysteriously and equally humorous form, which continually challenges the truth in the creation of works, are topics which engage Braun on an ongoing basis. This is Björn Braun’s first major presentation in Switzerland.

William J. O'Brien: Shame Spiral

Atlanta Contemporary, Atlanta, GA

May 9 – August 4, 2019

There is no dress code inside the tent. No choir, nor a bulletin. But the congregation is energetic and fully participatory. Presbyterian, Baptist and Methodist… this is a place to reach the lost, those with tender hearts. Under the big top is a transient group who have come to the revival to be filled with the spirit, to experience something beyond this immediate world. Chicago-based artist William J. O’Brien created this exuberant sanctuary for his other-worldly parishioners, fetishistic and ritualistic figures empowered by the glory.
