In 'CHEW THE FAT' ([tʃuː ðə fat] informal: to chat in a leisurely way, esp. at length), influential New York-based artist Rirkrit Tiravanija, presents filmic portraits of twelve artists: Douglas Gordon, Angela Bulloch, Pierre Huyghe, Philippe Parreno, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Elizabeth Peyton, Tobias Rehberger, Carsten Hoeller, Liam Gillick, Jorge Pardo, Andrea Zittel, Maurizio Cattelan. The artists, all selected by Tiravanija, belong to the same generation as himself and, like him, have achieved considerable international success through the 1990s and early 2000s. Most importantly, however, all are good friends of Tiravanija. This allows each interview to unfold in a uniquely relaxed, informal way, with conversation flowing naturally and the personal coming up as readily as questions of concept or career, as each artist 'chews the fat' with Rirkrit, their old friend and colleague. Synopsis Just say it – in his feature film "CHEW THE FAT“, 2008, Rirkrit Tiravanija meets up with twelve international artists of his own generation. He takes a stroll in the Californian desert with Andrea Zittel; in Berlin he visits Angela Bulloch, as well as the recently arrived Douglas Gordon. He relaxes with Elizabeth Peyton on her porch on Long Island, NY, before hooking up with Jorge Pardo in his spacious Los Angeles studio. Upping the pace of what begins like a roadmovie, he checks e-mails in New York with Liam Gillick, receives a visit in Thailand from Pierre Huyghe, and inspects Carsten Höller's birdcage in Stockholm. Then he enjoys a glass of wine in Paris with Philippe Parreno, and saunters along the Seine with Dominique Gonzales-Förster. Finally, with Tobias Rehberger, he rides a train across Germany. The only absence is Maurizio Cattalan, who is nonetheless present in everyone else's memories. If this sounds varied and entertaining, that is exactly what it is. But the relaxed mood of these meetings in locations chosen by the artists themselves also makes for pleasantly focused yet far-reaching conversations. Tiravanija begins each talk by asking the artist to tell him about his or her motivation and art education. What happens next is left to chance: the topics covered in "Chew the fat“ range from the Football World Championships to current art projects; from street cleaning in Paris to structural changes in artists' working conditions since the 1990s. High and low, life and art are intentionally yet casually intermingled; participants discuss the value of art as a commodity and as entertainment; again and again the materialness of art objects is eclipsed by discussions of key temporal and spatial relations. While each one of the twelve conversations is unique, they share one aspect: playfully yet searchingly they adress reflections and ideas that have made art so fascinating since the 1990s. Rirkrit Tiravanija made "Chew the fat“ in the context of twelve individual artist portraits created over the past several years. A must-see!+ More details

Portraits of Facebook, Carole Freeman's solo exhibition at Edward Day Gallery in Toronto, Canada, is a taxonomical series consisting of 196 portraits of members of the international contemporary art world. Utilizing the social networking website Facebook as a frame of both reference and access, Freeman sourced ‘friends’ profile photos to paint a body of work in direct dialogue with the digital age. Though the focus of each portrait was the individual, the exhibition functioned as installation, portraying a minuscule slice of the Facebook community and a wealth of humanity. With Facebook Canada executives opening the exhibition and partaking in the public engagement portrait party, the exhibition resounded with much media and web exposure. Freeman was invited to present her art practice and the exhibition, through projection, on the panel Making Art in the Age of New Media, moderated by Janet Carding, CEO/Director, Royal Ontario Museum for the Canadian Arts Summit 2012 at The Banff Centre, Banff, Canada. A selection from the exhibition has been re-contextualized for inclusion in Women’s Art Now, Leslie Sacks Fine Art, Los Angeles, January 19 – February 25, 2013, along with the work of other artists such as Elizabeth Peyton, Helen Frankenthaler, Pat Steir and more. Carole Freeman is a Toronto-based Canadian / American conceptual portraitist. Freeman’s work breathes masterful execution, authentic expression, and an experiential viewpoint into the drama and comedy of being human. An unintentional yet distinctive fusion of Lucian Freud, Elizabeth Peyton, Marlene Dumas, and Alice Neel, with an added soupcon of brazenness, Freeman’s brush marks, accidents, and varying paint thickness combine a bold, abstract application of paint to surface with an inventive approach to narrative image-making. Born in Winnipeg, Canada, Freeman graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours from the University of Manitoba, with Canadian artist Ivan Eyre as professor and mentor, and a Master of Arts from the School of Painting at the Royal College of Art in London, England, including a period at the Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris. Professors and tutors included E.H. Gombrich, Norbert Lynton, Peter de Francia, Phillip Rawson, John Golding, Ken Kiff, and Cecil Collins, and professional encounters with James Rosenquist and Matta. Freeman has received numerous private and editorial commissions, with illustrations published both nationally and internationally. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards including the Canada Council, University of Toronto, and Royal College of Art. Her work is represented in private and public collections in Canada, U.S.A., England, Italy, and Ireland. Website: www.carole-freeman.com Email: email@example.com+ More details

Film by Eric Minh Swenson. WOMEN’S ART NOW shines a vivid light on what’s long been missing from the socio-cultural and socio-political equations at work in much of the world today: that missing factor being equal input from women. Thus all the works in this exhibition, though not necessarily about women, are by women. The only other criteria for the selection of artworks is that they be masterfully executed, authentic expressions of the artists’ identities and consequent points of view. The field from which the artists were selected was defined in an equally simple manner - the artists have either crossed paths with the gallery and/or the gallery has collected their work. Having cast this modest curatorial net absent of an aesthetic agenda other than artistry and authenticity, this show nevertheless exhibits a broad cross-section from the canons of modernism, post-modernism, feminism and post-feminism. Styles range from literal to abstract, geometric to expressionist; media range from traditional painting, graphics and sculpture to conceptual and other “avant-garde” forms. WOMEN’S ART NOW will benefit Women’s Voices Now, a not-for-profit organization concerned with advancing women’s rights to free expression in Muslim societies. The Women’s Voices Now website hosts the largest existing collection of films by women and about women living in Muslim societies: 98 films from 40 countries. The website also supports an interactive online community of contributors from a wide range of national, ethnic, religious and economic backgrounds. All gallery proceeds from this exhibition will be donated to Women’s Voices Now. For further information about Women’s Voices Now, please visit www.womensvoicesnow.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information about WOMEN’S ART NOW contact email@example.com. Images and captions for a small selection of works from the exhibition are included below. Images and information for additional works are available upon request and will be viewable on the gallery’s website prior to and during the exhibition.

Born in Fuentealbilla, the heart of La Mancha ( Spain). His childhood was spent in this part of the Spanish backcountry surrounded by vineyards and cereal fields, land of open horizons and clear skies. Eduardo grew up among canvases and in permanent contact with nature. He clearly remembers the days his father took him and his brothers outside to paint the fields or the nearby villages by the river like Alcala del Jucar. He paid attention to his parents as they worked and grew to love art, translating life into colors and brush movement. He studied at Albacete and then proceed studies in Art at Cuenca, Spain.Not satisfied with the lack of activity of his hometown and seduced by the contemporary concepts of today's art he decided to travel to Paris to seek his own path. It was in Paris that he met artists who became a definitive influence to him. They introduced him to different points of views on life, art and living. He worked hard and lived the bohemia way of today's Parisian eventually getting a grant from La Mairie -the City Hall of Paris- to produce exhibits of his work, like the "Salon des Artistes Europeens" and "Reencontres". After spending two years in Paris Eduardo moved back to Spain where he continues to search, experiment and, of course, return to Fuentealbilla, his beloved homeland where his heart and his art have always belonged.

In the Boros residence – a former Second World War air raid shelter built in 1942 in central Berlin – visitors can easily lose their way in the maze-like corridors of bare concrete. There, Christian and his wife, Karen, live with their son amidst paintings by Elizabeth Peyton and a series of installations by groundbreaking artists such as Olafur Eliasson. It is a dream home that once seemed impossible to realize, but has now become an art manifesto for Berlin’s historical Mitte district, where change is the norm. The whole interview and all pictures will follow in 2012. In the meantime you find the best pictures in our book http://www.freundevonfreunden.com/book/ Video by Christian Fussenegger and Maren Sextro+ More details
