Anna Soldner reviews the talk with Dr. Brandt for DIS Magazine

Face to face with Amalia Ulman and Dr. Fredric Brandt

"The truth is out: international artist Amalia Ulman had plastic surgery, and discussed it in the context of art and beauty with celebrity cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Fredric Brandt.

Called the ‘King of Collagen,’ Brandt is a pioneer of a new regime of non-invasive plastic surgery described as the ‘New New Face.’ Gone are the days of the skin-tightening face lift, says Brandt: Now, patients want to walk out looking subtly refreshed and plush as a pin pillow."

THE NEW NEW FACE

Interview for Art In America for the Swiss Institute Show The St. Petersburg Paradox and talk with Dr. Brandt.

"They are mostly birthday messages—to a son, to a husband, to a brother—with a very defined (and passé) idea of masculinity and success: the iPhone, the credit card, the sports car, the suit. I imagine a mother wishing her son to do well, and it's this particular notion of prosperity that I always found very interesting because it's kind of retro. There is something that I tend to romanticize in these outmoded ideals of luxury."

OPENING TONIGHT!

The St. Petersburg Paradox

Opening Reception May 27, 6-8 PM

Giovanni Anselmo, Jean Arp, Ericka Beckman, Barbara Bloom, Alex Mackin Dolan, Marcel Duchamp, Cayetano Ferrer, Douglas Gordon, John Miller, Kaspar Müller, Sarah Ortmeyer, Tabor Robak, and Amalia Ulman.

Giving a talk with Dr. Fredric Brandt the WEDENESDAY 4th June 7PM @ Swiss Institute NYC

Exploring the relationship between identity, consumerism, and beauty, artist Amalia Ulman will discuss the idea of bodies as objects and investments with world-renowned cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Fredric Brandt. 

Amalia Ulman lives and works between London, UK and Gijón, Spain. Her work analyses social stratification, cultural capital, class imitation and seduction. Her aim is to scrutinize matters such as hierarchies, power relations, charity and empathy.
 
Dr. Fredric Brandt is a physician, researcher, lecturer, author, radio host, and pioneering cosmetic dermatologist. He is also an avid contemporary art collector, and has recently been described by The New York Times as “the designated magician responsible for keeping faces both well known and otherwise in states of extraordinary preservation.”

Part of a group show in London: JUNE SHOW @ Evelyn Yard

Evelyn Yard is pleased to present a new project to engage with the work of critical young artists. The simple, almost banal theme, suggests a polyphony of positions occupied, that don’t necessarily begin with old art grudges, but rather explore the possibility of the gallery space as a vehicle for discourse on aesthetics and beyond. The uncanny spectre of a snowstorm in June, a promise of a perpetually inverted Spring, the blank canvas of climate change.

Part of a group show at Spazio Cabinet - Documentation Here

Three artists, all under '89, will freely compare with space offering specific works such as elements that activate the contemporary use of two-dimensional support.

On view Alex Mackin Dolan's (b. 1990, USA) complex and multiform work, the pictorial appeal of Catherine Parsonage (b. 1989, UK)and Amalia Ulman's (1989, Argentina) intimate reflection on human relationships.

For Studiolo # an Alex Mackin Dolan's unreleased and hyper realistic 3D render will relates with Catherine Personage's site-specfic large wall drawing and with Amalia Ulman's hypnotic but pure installation of shabby chic "thoughts".

Interviewed by Anna Soldner for Bullet Magazine

"The first time we speak over Skype, it’s 11p.m. in Gijon, Spain, and Amalia Ulman is sitting with her laptop outside a street cafe, shivering. Home has no wifi, so this is her office: a rock bench and the sea as a backdrop. The next time we speak, the scene is very different—she is alone, in a hotel room. Dressed in a silky beige robe, she sits on a chair, one arm dangled out the window to flick her cigarette."

12 April @ Weekends (Sweden)

"Weekends is delighted to present House and Garden, a show by Amalia Ulman and Cédric Fargues. Domesticity, home, intimacy… Even if encapsulated in the rhetoric of privacy, these words are nevertheless associated with self-exhibition. From Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management to the exhibition Designing Modern Women 1890-1990 at the MOMA, the home has been a site concerned with self-exposure, gender division and aesthetic conflicts..."

Lonely Girl interview by Asher Penn

http://lonelygirl.info/amaliaulman.html

22 September 2013

THE FAN

How the Decorative Hand-Fan Made the World Smaller and the ArtWorld Economy Bigger

THE FAN tells the dramatic story of the fan's creation, the decade of struggle before it was widely adopted, and the sweeping economic consequences of the sharp fall in transportation costs that it brought about.

Published on the fiftieth anniversary of the first fan voyage, this is the first comprehensive history of the decorative hand fan. It recounts how the drive and imagination of an iconoclastic entrepreneur, Amalia Ulman, turned it from an impractical idea into a massive industry that slashed the cost of transporting art around the world and made the boom in global trade possible.

But the hand-fan didn't just happen. Its adoption required huge sums of money, both from private investors and from ports that aspired to be on the leading edge of a new technology.

Drawing on previously neglected sources, the writer shows how the fan transformed economic geography, devastating traditional ways of art dealing. By making shipping so cheap that industry could locate art studios far from its customers, the fan paved the way for artists independently located studios, to become each of them a workshop, bringingconsumers a previously unimaginable variety of low-cost art from around the globe.

Giving a lecture this friday (9th April) at the Regional State Archives in Gothenburg

Buyer, Walker, Rover

"Buyer, Walker, Rover is an analysis on how cities can be experienced through consumerism and how this experience could be determined through certain objects' simultaneous presence in different parts of the world. Amalia Ulman describes in this lecture at the Regional State Archives in Gothenburg, how by visiting 1$ / 1€ / 1£ there's a possibility of personal connection and symbiosis between different cities due to globalization and the constant flow of imported goods; and how by recognizing patterns in recurrent trends in the graphic design of objects manufactured in China, she's able to map, by focusing on these details, a bigger picture and finally analyze macro-economics on a global scale."
