DERRICK ALEXIS COARD among others at White Columns, New York

Derrick Alexis Coard: The Pastor's Healing Ration, 2015

September 24 – November 2, 2019
Opening: September 24, 6-8pm

"White Columns is proud to present the first-ever exhibition to consider the legacy of the ground- breaking New York not-for-profit organization, Healing Arts Initiative (aka Hospital Audiences Inc./H.A.I.). The exhibition will include more than one hundred works by twenty-four artists who were affiliated with H.A.I. during its nearly five-decade lifespan.

Founded in 1970 and originally known as Hospital Audiences Inc., H.A.I.’s pioneering mission was to “inspire healing, growth and learning through engagement in the arts for the culturally underserved in the New York City community... whose access to the arts have been limited by health, age or income." H.A.I. was dissolved in 2016 after a series of tragic events forced the organization into bankruptcy. White Columns was instrumental in helping to preserve the organization’s four-decade- plus archive of art produced under H.A.I.’s auspices: an unprecedented and historically significant collection of several thousand individual art works.

This exhibition is drawn from these archival holdings and focuses on the legacy of H.A.I.’s long- running visual art programs, which for over forty years fostered and provided support to an extraordinary community of mostly self-taught artists based in New York City, many of whom were elderly or living with physical or developmental disabilities. H.A.I.’s programs for artists began as workshops for individuals living in private proprietary adult homes (PPHAs), and it was at these workshops in the late 1970s and early 1980s that Lady Shalimar Montague, Ray Hamilton, Irene Phillips and Rocco Fama, four of the earliest and now most widely-recognized H.A.I. artists, began to make art. Over time H.A.I.’s Arts Workshop program evolved to include the H.A.I. Studio & Gallery which provided artists with studio space, materials, exhibition opportunities, and – perhaps most crucially – a sense of community. Over its lifetime H.A.I. supported hundreds of artists including such now acknowledged figures as Melvin Way, Julius Cesar Bustamante, and Derrick Alexis Coard, among others. (...)"

September 21, 2019 – January 12, 2020

The exhibition One Way Ticket to Mars at Kunsthal KAdE Amersfoort will feature drawings by Karl Hans Janke.

"One Way Ticket to Mars allows visitors to experience various aspects of the journey to Mars and what it is like there. How relentless are the conditions of this planet awaiting to be discovered? Is living on Mars a frightening idea, or a provocative thought? As from 21 September, Kunsthal KAdE will present a vision of what so far is still an impossible journey. The exhibition comprises four narratives: the desire, the journey, the stay and homesickness. It features new and existing works by artists, designers, architects and scientists from the Netherlands and abroad. (...)"

September 20 – September 29, 2019

The opening of the exhibition is taking place during Warsaw Gallery Weekend on Friday, 20.09, 5-9 pm at Tomasz Machciński Foundation.

"The exhibition With love to Tommy brings together two artists, who share a common fascination for the classic vision of Hollywood, and simultaneously a resistance against its power over the viewers glance. In their photographs, which draw from the camp aesthetics of the turn of the 1960’s and 70’s, they appropriate and process images of femininity created in the dream factory, for their own use. Thanks to the cooperation with the Delmes & Zander Gallery in Cologne, the works of Type 42 will be presented to the polish public for the first time. (...)"

Moritz Scheper writes about our show FICKEN IST FRIEDEN by Helga Goetze in his 'Critic Guide' for Frieze:

"Last year marked the 30th anniversary of Delmes & Zander – a gallery that continues to present interesting works by outsider artists. The current exhibition ‘Ficken ist Frieden’ (Fucking Is Peace), features wall hangings by Helga Goetze, who spent decades as a sex-positive activist trying to loosen up Berliners’ stiff morals with slogans like: ‘Fucking is important’. The hangings in the exhibition show an idealized state of liberal sexual mores. The largest work, Indianische Astrologie (Indian Astrology, 1984–85), depicts humankind in harmony both with the natural world and with its own nature, its own desires. While there is a striking stylistic similarity between these works and those of American artist Dorothy Iannone, Goetze developed her style significantly earlier. (...)"

Leonie Pfennig writes for Monopol about her highlights of DC Open, Cologne. We are very pleased that she mentions our exhibition HELGA GOETZE. FICKEN IST FRIEDEN:

"Eine etwas anders geartete Zukunftsvision proklamierte zeitlebens die Künstlerin und Aktivistin Helga Goetze, deren vielseitiges Werk bei Delmes & Zander entdeckt werden kann. Mit dem Slogan, "Ficken ist Frieden" kämpfte die Berlinerin seit 1983 mit täglichen Aktionen vor der Gedächtniskirche für die sexuelle Befreiung insbesondere der Frau. Sie empfand Sex als einzig probates Mittel auf dem Weg der Erkenntnis. Die Galerie präsentiert eine Auswahl aus ihren über 3000 Gedichten, Zeichnungen und gestickten Tapisserien mit erotischen Szenen, um Goetze, die zu Lebzeiten für ihre Aktionen eher belächelt wurde, als Künstlerin zu ehren. (...)"
