Frith Street Gallery are pleased to present a new edition by Cornelia Parker. Cornelia Parker’s, ‘Sitting Thinking About Explosions in a Small Quiet Room’ 2012, was originally commissioned for the exhibition ‘Silences’ (2012) at Temple Contemporary, Philadelphia. It is a recording of a performance in which the artist, as the title says, sits and thinks about explosions: extreme, noisy and alarming thoughts in a serene setting. The resulting track is a combination of Parker’s breathing and the sound of the stylus cutting through vinyl.

Auditorium Arte at Auduitorium
Parco della Musica Roma
23 November – 9 December 2012
Curated by Anna Cestelli Guidi
This exhibition by Massimo Bartolini inaugurates Fondazione Musica per Roma’s new exhibition project dedicated to the art of sound: One Space/One Sound is a periodic project with three exhibitions a year in the AuditoriumArte exhibition space.
Sound has always been an important element in the work of Massimo Bartolini (born in Cecina, 1962) and he is now presenting the exhibition “HUM”, dedicated to one of the most brilliant and enigmatic figures of the last century, Glenn Gould, on the occasion of the Homage to Glenn Gould presented by the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in celebration of the artist.
Through two new sound works based on the idea of recording and created specifically for the Auditorium context, Bartolini transforms the exhibition spaces in a surprising and unexpected way, creating an atmosphere of intimate beauty, animated only by the incorporeal presence of the voice, a bodiless voice which, stripped of the ego of the artist’s presence, now finds its ultimate meaning in the presence and interpretation of the audience.
With the collaboration of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and the American Academy in Rome.
Thanks to Magazzino d’Arte Moderna Rome.

The group exhibition ONE ON ONE enables the artists to directly address the singular viewer. Individual, self-contained spaces that are specially conceived for the new works and only accessible for one visitor at a time occupy the whole exhibition space of KW. Be it a space for action or contemplation, a cabinet or a non-space, be it performative, installation-based or conceptual, material or immaterial—other than the spatial restrictions, no limitations have been placed on the artistic creation of individual microcosms.
Marlene Dumas has been awarded the Dutch state prize for the arts, the Johannes Vermeer Award 2012. The State Secretary for Culture, Halbe Zijlstra, will present the prize on 29 October in Delft.
The jury of the Johannes Vermeer Prize 2012 commended Marlene Dumas for her impressive oeuvre. For over 30 years, her exhibitions have reached the highest form of poetic imagination. The jury also admired the way in which Dumas pursues her profession. She never fails to provide a context for her work for exhibitions. Dumas reflects constantly on the art of painting and on being an artist in general. She does so through literary texts and commentaries, and through the lectures that universities and museums frequently ask her to give. Her endless energy is admirable, as is her ability to address a wide variety of subjects. From year to year, she knows how to surprise her audience with new work, impressing again and again through her unique ability.
