Candice Breitz debuts new video work in Frankfurt

Candice Breitz presents a new 13-channel video work, titled TLDR , at this year’s edition of The B3 Biennial of the Moving Image in Frankfurt am Main, Germany (29 November – 3 December). Under the Festival theme “ON DESIRE”, the Biennial – from a political, aesthetic and technological perspective – considers the latest currents relating to the moving image; presenting the most innovative and creative artists and contributions from various global moving image sectors. In TLDR, Breitz presents a portrait of a community of sex workers who live and work in Cape Town. According to the artist, “[t]he work grew out of a series of interviews and an intensive workshop with the featured participants, extending an ongoing conversation between Breitz and SWEAT (Sex Workers Education & Advocacy Taskforce), the non-profit organisation with which the sex workers are affiliated”.

Candice Breitz in Montréal and Zurich

Breitz will be exhibited on the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal’s group exhibition Leonard Cohen: Une brèche en toute chose / A Crack in Everything (9 November – 1 April), featuring numerous international artists and creatives from different disciplines. She presents a new work inspired by Cohen’s musicality and recurring themes within his lyrics. In Zurich, her video installation Love Story is included in Extra Bodies: The Use of the <Other Body> in Contemporary Art (18 November – 4 February) at the Migros Museum of Contemporary Art. The exhibition, curated by Raphael Gygax, scrutinizes the various modes in which extras with their social and biosocial roles are presented, and function, in art.

Breitz’s video work Queen (A Portrait of Madonna) is part of My Music (7 October – 25 March) at the Arken Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. The exhibition looks at the intersection of pop music and art, calling it “a sensory eruption of music video, video art, sculpture, painting and installation”.
