DOMESTIC ALIEN
Nov 18, 2017 - Feb 23, 2018
Franz Ackermann, El Anatsui, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Richard Wilson.
Gazelli Art House is delighted to present a curated group exhibition drawing together four internationally acclaimed artists first-time exhibited in Baku, Azerbaijan – Franz Ackermann, El Anatsui, Michelangelo Pistoletto and Richard Wilson. A rare opportunity to see a grouping of pioneering works, Domestic Alien is a show that explores and challenges a diverse range of present-day themes and issues. Underlined by the concept of displacement, the show encourages a dialogue on differences in societal and cultural values, notions of domesticity, and the impact of globalisation.

JANE MCADAM FREUD
Nov 24, 2017 - Jan 6, 2018
Gazelli Art House is delighted to present new works by Jane McAdam Freud in her upcoming exhibition Object – Fix Me in Your Turquoise Gaze. Created during the artist’s two-year residency at Harrow School in London, McAdam Freud explores the boundaries between painting and sculpture and the authority of these two disciplines in context to each other. Working with discarded objects or ‘stuff’, the artist drew inspiration from her place of work, an abandoned studio set within the school’s original sculpture department.
 
Throughout these new works, McAdam Freud engages with the overt symbolism many of these objects present. The school’s institutional setting forces the artist to question her ambivalent relationship to authority, a complicated mixture of awe and rebellion. Situated within an educational establishment imbued with unprecedented history and hierarchy, the inanimate objects in turn instruct her work: they become her educators. The value of each piece is subsequently re-viewed, re-asserted and re-invented.

Jan 26 - Mar 10, 2018
Private view Thu Jan 25
We are delighted to present her shey qayidacaq(1) a highly anticipated group show featuring Central Asia's leading contemporary and modern artists, including Mikayil Abdullayev, Gennadiy Brijatyuk, Aida Mahmudova and Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich. The first show to exhibit works from the region since the gallery’s inception in 2003, Gazelli Art House examines national identity, tradition and history through this exceptional oeuvre. Located between East and West, the works combine tradition and folklore with an array of genres and techniques, adding to a unique contemporary art discourse.
(1) her shey qayidacaq translates to what comes around, goes around in Azeri, in reference to the cyclical patterns of history and its effect on regional development and national identity.
