    Work by Daniel Boyd is included in 'Where the Oceans Meet' at the Museum of Art and Design, Miami. Curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, Gabriela Rangel, and Rina Carvajal the exhibition engages two key figures who devoted their work to thinking through borders, both physical and ideological: the Cuban painter, scholar, and ethnographer Lydia Cabrera and the Martinican philosopher, poet, and literary critic Édouard Glissant. In dialogue with the ideas of Cabrera and Glissant, the artists in this exhibition grapple with some of today’s most urgent and transcultural issues: diaspora, race, gender, memory, history, ritual, violence, and hospitality.

    Opening today, 26 May, the exhibition continues until 29 September. 

    On 26 May, Daniel Boyd along with fellow artist Andros Zins-Browne will join curators Asad Raza and Rina Carvajal to consider ideas that underlie the exhibition.

    Isadora Vaughan's solo exhibition 'Bilirubin Bezoar' opens at Gertrude Glasshouse this evening.

    The title of Vaughan’s presentation co-joins the names of a chemical compound formed by the breakdown of dead blood cells in the body, inherent in the yellow colourisation of bruises (bilirubin) ­– and a small stony concretion formed in the stomachs of certain animals, and historically used as an antidote to particular poisons (bezoar). The exhibition extends Vaughan’s interest in expanded material experimentation and elaborating a visceral interpretation of anatomical surface, composition and transformation. In this installation, the artist blankets the surface of the floor to create an environment that forms a skin, upon which audiences must navigate a pathway through. Appearing as an environment akin to a forest floor, yet one that also connotes an infestation or infection of a bodily surface, the installation takes form like an alchemist’s manufacture of a new form of anatomy. Departing purposefully from the physical representation of the human form, Vaughan instead presents a setting of unnerving viscosity, metamorphosis and decay that suggests a conduit between and a collapsing of the body and the environment.

    Current until 22 June.

    Manuel Ocampo's solo exhibition, 'Ideological Mashup/Remix', at STPI in Singapore opens today, showcasing new works on paper and prints created on site at the STPI workshop. 

    Ocampo continues to employ symbols and iconography that straddle between accessibility and ambiguity. Developing print and paper experimentations in a collaborative setting which required a different momentum and mode of production, therefore imbuing variations of old imagery with new techniques and approaches.

    The exhibition continues until 22 June.

    Consuelo Cavaniglia is in 'Vanishing Point' at ANU Gallery, Canberra, alongside Ellen Dahl, Taloi Havini, Yvette Hamilton and Salote Tawale. Echoing the illusion of parallel lines at their vanishing point, the exhibition considers the island as a concept where opposing ideas converge — contained yet contingent, real yet imagined, the political and the personal.

    Open from tomorrow and running until 14 June.

    Prima Materia translates literally from the Latin as, ‘first matter’, and was based on the notion that gold could be produced from a few basic elements. The exhibition invites a comparison between the creation and destruction dichotomy of the alchemical pursuit and contemporary art practice.

    David Griggs has been commissioned to create two 8.4 metre long paintings for the entrance of the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, for the upcoming exhibition 'City Prince/sses'. 'City Prince/sses' focuses on the rise of the 21st century megacity. The exhibition is presented as an imaginary, multiple and complex city, without borders, messy, staggering and creative: an unpredictable laboratory, which is always in motion and being (re)constructed.
