Marinella Senatore established herself on the international scene thanks to the spectacular interdisciplinarity of her practice often flowing into events in the public sphere. Her work bears a strong participatory dimension, combining folklore with social critique via means spanning from text to installations and actions involving other artists...

Through the 1970s and 80s Victor Burgin's work mainly consisted of photographic sequences, with printed texts juxtaposed with the image. His work is influenced by a variety of theorists and philosophers, especially post-structuralist thinkers.
A major new retrospective at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam will survey the life and work of Ulay – the legendary performance artist who stole Hitler's favourite painting from the wall of the Berlin National Gallery, created his own hybrid-gendered alter-ego, and broke up with Marina Abramović on the Great Wall of China.
At London's Richard Saltoun gallery last week, guests to the opening of Matrescence, curated by Catherine McCormack, were invited to take part in Liv Pennington's Private View (originally performed from 2002 to 2010 in London, and later at galleries in Manchester, Poitiers and Oslo)
Her 1968 work Between Past and Future: eight exercises in political thought will be the protagonist of an exhibition at the Richard Saltoun Gallery in London, in which the works of 20 artists, mostly women, are exhibited as representative of the thought of the American historian.
As well as offering the consolations of ritual, Elizabeth describes the occult as a source of anti-authoritarian power. Much of the art in her book is by women, many – such as the Swedish theosophist Hilma af Klint or the surrealist mystic Remedios Varo – marginal figures in their time.
Richard Saltoun gallery in London is dedicating its entire 2021 exhibition programme to the German-born, Jewish American philosopher Hannah Arendt (1906–1975) because 'her call for thoughtful reflection on difficult subjects remains impressively relevant today', the gallery says.
She had decided to record herself every day for a whole year, once every five years. I loved the algorithmic nature of this methodology. Each day is accounted for by a photograph, often a self-portrait, resulting over the course of 50 years, at least ten such bodies of work, all exhibited mimicking the calendar format. Instead of large-sized...
Nel suo lavoro la sequenza, la ripetizione, la ritualità del gesto sono aspetti molto importanti. Credo che parlino anche di una stasi e di un'attesa temporali necessari alla vita, ma sempre più annichiliti dalle modalità del vivere contemporaneo. Mi potrebbe dire che valore hanno queste nella sua pratica? Sono importanti per la creazione e per la...
Da questa paura ideologica nei confronti di una mimesi oggettivante secondo Sissa, 'ci distoglie l'arte, la téchne, di Silvia Giambrone', capace di annunciare un femminismo non ideologico e meno austero di quello canonico–secondo cui la violenza sulla donna lasciava come unico indizio l'oggettificazione del corpo femminile.
Ulay's gallery, Richard Saltoun, confirmed Ulay 's death with the statement: 'Ulay was the freest of spirits–a pioneer and provocateur with a radically and historically unique oeuvre, operating at the intersection of photography and the conceptually oriented approaches of performance and body art. His passing leaves a momentous gap in the...

London galleries have also been exploring the topic, with the well received shows Birth at TJ Boulting and Part 1: Matrescence at Richard Saltoun Gallery taking place at the tail end of last year.
'I never saw my artistic work as separate from my private life—they are an inseparable entity. One of the primary concerns of the women's movement was to show that the private is political. It was vital to me to keep reflecting not only my emotional reactions, my fears, my conditioning, but also my utopian ideas.'
A word of warning to those planning on quaffing several glasses of champagne at tonight's private view of Matresence at Richard Saltoun gallery. Queues for the loo will be extra long due to a performance work by Liv Pennington, in which 40 volunteers will be asked to go to the gallery's toilets and pee on a pregnancy test.
While Italian scholarship is now beginning to recover the legacies of Maria Lai (1919–2013), Ketty La Rocca (1938–1976), Lisa Ponti (1922–2019), Nanda Vigo (1936–), and the subject of this exhibition, Marinella Pirelli (1925–2009), the unique positions of these figures within the defined trajectory of art movements remain precarious.
Croatian artist Jagoda Buić came into textile work, too, from a garment background, though in her case it was theatrical costumes rather than fashion. That sense of drama rolled over into her art: in the 1960s and 70s she staged happenings out in the Balkan wilds (there's a great photo of her riding a horse between monumental suspended...

Taken in the artist's Paris studio in 1971, the image documents Gina Pane's first 'pain performance', Escalade non-anesthésiée (Unanesthetized Escalation), in which she climbed up and down the metal frame for 30 minutes, until her hands and feet were so wounded that she could not continue.
An exhibition of her Tantric Transformations, 'full-frontal' photo collages and body Xerox monoprints from the 1970s, has also just opened at Richard Saltoun gallery. These gloriously erotic, explicit works mark the 72-year-old Slinger's progression from her earlier feminine reinterpretations of Surrealist collage into an exploration of the...
