Zach Blas: Cultus, arebyte Gallery London, until 17 February 2024

CULTUS is the second instalment of the Silicon Traces trilogy, a series of moving image installations that contends with the beliefs, fantasies, and histories influential to Silicon Valley’s visions of the future. Spanning queer and speculative engagements with psychedelia, the nootropics industry, California futurism, network infrastructure, and political resistance, the trilogy surfaces the political unconscious of the tech industry.

Pipilotti Rist. Prickling Goosebumps & a Humming Horizon, Hauser & Wirth NYC, until 13 April 2024

An exhibition conceived by the artist as a multisensory experience for visitors. Rist explores interior and exterior—internal and external physical and psychological spaces—with Luhring Augustine reimagined as an expansive, shared ‘backyard’ and Hauser & Wirth transformed into a whimsical ‘collective living room.’.

Lawrence in Fitzrovia – Unveiling of the Marble Head, The Fitzrovia Chapel London, 26 January – 9 February 2024

Sculptor Carin Johnson unveils a Portuguese pink marble sculpture of Lawrence, an iconic cult music figure from the 80s and 90s. A beautiful display of resilience and reflection and is being shown for the first time alone in the unique and meditative setting of the Fitzrovia Chapel.

Renaissance 3.0, ZKM Kalrsruhe, until 25 February 2024

The exhibition presents contemporary approaches of artists who, on the one hand, continue the lines of research of the preceding renaissances and, on the other, open up new fields of research. It also features convincing parallel research or elective affinities between science and art. The focus is on a new culture of tools. On the basis of 35 media art positions, it provides insights into artistic laboratory situations and artistic-scientific collaborations that open up a shared multidisciplinary “Wissensfeld” (base of knowledge) for the 21st century — from biochemistry to genetic engineering and information design to neuroscience and unconventional computing.

Signal by Mohamed Bourouissa, Palais de Tokyo Paris, 6 February – 30 June 2024 

The imprisonment of bodies and the restriction of thought, the representation of identities, the determination and the control of language, forms of care based on plants, music and colour, informal economies, alienation and resistance: these are some of the intimate experiences from which Mohamed Bourouissa works in order to create collective stories that draw on the roots of bitterness (seum in Arabic).
