THERME ART’s HILDEGARD VON BINGEN SYMPOSIUM

At the outset of April I went to Meisenheimer Hof for the Hildegard von Bingen Symposium hosted by Therme Art. I was the opening keynote speaker and presented on my practice as it relates to those of Hildegard von Bingen, Emma Kunz and Hilma af Klint. They’re all interdisciplinary, philosophical, spiritual healers and doers whom I’ve been really enjoying researching and getting to know. Hilma I know most intimately—her work set the stage for my solo exhibition, “Moving Weight” opening tomorrow at CFHILL in Stockholm.
The symposium could not have been more enlightening or rejuvenating; joining the panel with brilliant Artistic Director of Serpentine Galleries, Hans Ulrich Obrist, moderated by Therme Art CEO and curator, Mikolaj Sekutowicz, was a joy and something I hope to repeat. Linked here is a video overview and recap of the symposium. Thank you again to the whole Therme Art team for having me and hosting this incredible event.
ART BASEL UNLIMITED
Since the symposium, I’ve primarily been working from Amsterdam. I came over here to build a sculpture for the Unlimited curated section opening at Art Basel. I knew I wanted to make this work in Europe, and that I wanted to make it even bigger than what I’d done as the Rubell Museum’s Artist in Residence in Spring of 2021. That intention has carried me from start to finish and I’m really proud to say—we’re doing it! The work, By means other than the known senses, will debut in Basel, Switzerland this June with Vielmetter LA.
Above is a look into the Amsterdam studio.
SOLO EXHIBITION: “MOVING WEIGHT” AT CFHILL
In the meantime: as I mentioned, I’m opening “Moving Weight” an exhibition where I am in dialogue with Hilma af Klint at CFHILL in Stockholm, Sweden. The sculptures in this show are all the result of gut reactions. I wrote this statement about the exhibition, but the takeaway is really: expansion = yes, contraction = no. I hope this show honors Hilma’s constant striving to do what she had to do; her dedication to intuition. It’ll be open April 29 – May 27. If you happen to be in the area, stop in for the opening. I’ll be hosting an artist talk.

GROUP EXHIBITION: “SET IT OFF” AT THE PARRISH MUSEUM
I’ll also have three new works, including one outdoor work, at the Parrish Museum as part of “Set it Off,” the group exhibition curated by Deux Femmes Noires, Racquel Chevremont and Mickalene Thomas. The exhibition will include artists Leilah Babirye, Torkwase Dyson, February James, Karyn Olivier, Kameelah Janan Rasheed and myself, and will run from May 22 through July 24, 2022.
Here’s some text about the exhibition:
“Set It Off is Chevremont and Thomas’s third curatorial project together. They were drawn to the thoughtful integration of architecture and landscape at the Parrish, and embraced the opportunity to consider the ways artists are using and manipulating space to explore identity and place today—a theme that runs through each of these artists’ practices. The title, Set It Off—to do something significant, to do something with intensity or with a hurricane-like force, or to change an atmosphere for the better—points to the varied, impactful work featured in the exhibition. Chevremont and Thomas showcase these six women who, each in their own right, have “set it off,” creating bold, compelling work that pushes far beyond the perceived limitations of their chosen genres and mediums.”

Durchblick. Lilly Lulay und Susa Templin
I would be happy to see you next week on the occasion of an artist talk and catalogue presentation with Susa Templin and Christoph Schütte at Kunststiftung DZ Bank Frankfurt. Please reserve your seat here since places are limited.
For those who can’t make it to Frankfurt I have updated my website with Images and a video interview (DE) with Susa Templin, me and curator Christina Leber.
You can also listen to this short radio feature (DE) from HR2 about our exhibition.
05.05.2022, 7 pm artist talk and catalog presentation (DE) : Lilly Lulay and Susa Templin in conversation with Christoph Schütte (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)
»Lilly Lulays und Susa Templins Umgang mit dem Medium Fotografie trennt eine ganze Epoche. Jene radikale Zäsur, die das analoge Zeitalter vom digitalen trennt. Und die nicht ohne Folgen für das eigene Medium bleiben kann. Was sich im prinzipiellen Zweifel, im Wandel vom Verständnis des fotografischen Bildes als Dokument also, ebenso niederschlägt wie in der heute unendlichen Verfügbarkeit der Bilder, in der Wahl der Mittel geradeso wie im künstlerischen Vorgehen. Was bedeutet das für ihre Arbeit? Oder sind sich beider Positionen womöglich sogar näher, als man denkt? Das sind Fragen, die sich auch angesichts der aktuellen Kataloge der beiden Künstlerinnen stellen. Und inmitten ihrer Bilder womöglich drängender denn je.«
The exhibition is still on view till 21.5. 2022
