Centre Pompidou, Paris | Opening November 28, 2018

Romanian Season at the Pompidou Center highlights an extraordinary laboratory of artistic creativity, intimately, and fully linked to the writing of the history of modern and contemporary art. The 2019 France-Romania season is thus the occasion to return to an essential moment in the history of the international cultural dynamics of the 20th century, for which Paris has long remained the hub of hatching and affirmation and where the actors of the artistic scenes from Central and Eastern Europe played a leading role. Through a few founding figures of artistic modernity and avant-gardes, the Center Pompidou aims to highlight and review the extreme richness of its heritage through exhibitions, installations, skirmishes and thematic itineraries.

Sanchez-Kane Pop-Up at Nicodim Gallery, Los Angeles

Nicodim Gallery, Los Angeles | Friday, Nov. 16 & Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018 12–8pm

Sanchez-Kane brings the inspiration behind its avant-garde menswear collection to Los Angeles with a Tianguis-inspired shopping experience at NICODIM Gallery. In collaboration with Mezcal El Silencio, a fellow rebel brand with deep Mexican roots, Sanchez-Kane will create a ceremonial experience through an interactive art installation and debut a new unisex ring design.

The entire NICODIM Gallery will be redesigned as the iconic district of La Lagunilla Market, where bootleg DVDs dress the streets, clothes hangs off high racks and dress suits are mounted on walls. It is beautiful chaos in the eyes of Sanchez-Kane, a visionary brand founded by contemporary artist and provocateur Barbara Sanchez-Kane.

Ciprian Muresan in 'REMEMBERING LANDSCAPE' at Muzeul National de Arta Contemporana, Bucharest

Ciprian Muresan in 'REMEMBERING LANDSCAPE' at Muzeul National de Arta Contemporana, Bucharest

MNAC, Bucharest | 15 November, 2018 – 17 March, 2019

Many times, the landscape is understood in escapist terms, self-forgetting, by seemingly anachronistic notions about the homeland, or by their cosmopolitan pendant—the tourist cliché. How can it, therefore, compose a contemporary landscape image that recognizes change, tempts destruction, while being able to question the conditions of a position? REMEMBERING LANDSCAPE focuses on landscape imaging and aesthetic strategies, linking them to commemoration / remembrance processes. Ciprian Muresan's work is featured in this group show curated by Eva Schmidt (MGK Siegen) and Kai Vöckler (HfG Offenbach) in cooperation with Center for Cultural Decontamination (Branislav Dimitrijević, Lola Joksimović) and the MNAC București.

Ciprian Muresan 'Tradiții active I' at the Muzeul de Artă Cluj-Napoca

Ciprian Muresan 'Tradiții active I' at the Muzeul de Artă Cluj-Napoca

Muzeul de Artă Cluj-Napoca | 14 November 14, 2018 – 13 January, 2019

Curated by Dan Breaz, Tradiții active I (Active Traditions I ) presents a selections sculpture, painting, and video works by Ciprian Muresan. Opening exactly five years after Muresan's first exhibition at the Muzeul de Artă Cluj-Napoca, Muresan continues his approach to the works of the Great Masters through his language of repitition. Muresan renegotiates the limits of art, questioning his role in art history and his rights to use basal techniques. The high stakes of these seemingly humble 'works' reveal unpredictable ways of creating the new. In Muresan's world, the new is not distincly seperate from the old.

Austria | 9 November, 2018

A total of 27 artists were nominated and the jury of international experts could award a maximum of seven prizes. Since 1991, the IBK Sponsorship Awards have been awarded annually in changing categories. Judges found of interest the consequence of Olschbaur's work in terms of deeply painterly interests and questions, but which also leaves room to repeatedly strike back and form outliers.

Galeria Nicodim, Bucharest | 6 November, 2018

Inspired by both the '90s and the spirit of Jeremy Scott, the creative director of the MOSCHINO House, the H & MOSCHINO party took place at the Nicodim Gallery in Bucharest, which was transformed into a vibrant, colorful space. Guests listened to the best Romanian hits of the 90s, mixed by DJ Vali Barbulescu. Just a few seconds after the countdown, they were invited to a pop up shop to discover all the pieces of the H & MOSCHINO collection.

"The whole process of the transcription of non-material media into painting, video or sculpture has become an important topic itself... The passive position of a viewer (like James Stewart in Hitchcock's Rear Window) has changed and this rises the question of losing our safe observing position..." – Daniel Pitín

'The Summoning of Groovin’ Gary,' curated by Aaron Moulton in Berlin

'The Summoning of Groovin’ Gary,' curated by Aaron Moulton in Berlin

Trauma Bar und Kino, Berlin | September 28 – October 18

On the morning of September 28th, 1978, a young filmmaker named Trent Harris stood outside the Channel 2 studios in Salt Lake City fixing the jam in his new video camera. He raised it up to his eye and hit record. Across the parking lot in that same moment was a guy from Beaver, Utah by the name of “Groovin’ Gary”. Driving since dawn Gary made the pilgrimage to the big city because it was his destiny to be on television. He felt it. He wandered around the property of Channel 2 taking the odd photo while waiting for the door of TV Land to open. When Trent hit record Gary knew this was fate knocking. 
This is the story of the Phoenix.

Opening September 28 from 8 until late.

Moffat Takadiwa and Simphiwe Ndzube featured in a Group Show of Contemporary Art from West and Southern Africa

Moffat Takadiwa and Simphiwe Ndzube featured in a Group Show of Contemporary Art from West and Southern Africa

Ever Gold [Projects], San Francisco | September 8 – October 27, 2018

Defying the Narrative: Contemporary Art from West and Southern Africa features works by 14 African artists, including Simphiwe Ndzube and Moffat Takadiwa. Intending to present the varied directions of contemporary African art to the Bay Area, the works in the show highlight the narrative properties of materials and the idea of figuration as a symbolic device. While all of the artists in Defying the Narrative are African, the artists represent a broad spectrum of perspectives, ideologies, and geographic origins, and the lack of a unifying narrative among them is both the premise and the conceit of this exhibition.

Aaron Moulton curates 'Seeing Eye Awareness' at the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana

Aaron Moulton curates 'Seeing Eye Awareness' at the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana

Match Gallery, Ljubljana | September 5 – October 21, 2018

The exhibition Seeing Eye Awareness celebrates the artist as cultural clairvoyant, a shaman, as someone having a third eye opened unto the secrets of society, as someone we invite to reveal mystical truths. The artist's truest function has been to uncover mutations and anomalies. These are things that come from a place where language is insufficient or that crosses the border of consciousness, showing us culture’s bleeding edge. The exhibition is included in the programme of the Indigo Festival

Simphiwe Ndzube 'Dancing Into Form' at Harper's Books

Simphiwe Ndzube 'Dancing Into Form' at Harper's Books

Harper's Books, East Hampton | July 21 – August 15, 2018

Simphiwe Ndzube has a new solo exhibition of drawings as well as a painting on linen at Harper's Books, East Hampton. The exhibition will be on view alongside a concurrent exhibition by Los Angeles-based painter Cassi Namoda, We Killed Mangy Dog. While Ndzube is well known for his large-scale assemblages, Dancing into Form will represent the first time in which his powerful drawings are brought together for collective consideration. Many of the works on paper featured in this exhibition served as preliminary studies for paintings and resulted from, as Ndzube puts it, a process of “working forward and backward to allow chance to open up avenues for possible compositions for newer work." As the artist notes, “they are dancing, celebrating, paddling, flying, drunk, and falling, but always in a constant journey to becoming.”

Welcome Aaron Moulton as Nicodim Gallery's New Creative Director

Welcome Aaron Moulton as Nicodim Gallery's New Creative Director

Nicodim Gallery is thrilled to announce Aaron Moulton as the newest addition to our full-time family. He has already made history with the gallery: he organized Omul Negru (2016), The Basilisk (2017), and The Hierophant (2017)—a three-part exhibition series that spanned Nicodim Gallery, Los Angeles and Galeria Nicodim, Bucharest. Moulton has worked both undercover and in-uniform as a Cultural Operative for over a decade across Europe and North America. His exhibitions and projects employ the art world to perform thought experiments that unclothe the cultural constructs on which society is built, stripping its underpinnings nude for all to see, warts and all. Mediating the visual traditions of New Age communities, the Occult, and Pseudoscience, his work manifests a tactical use of context that has offered new insights into and erects diegeses around avant-gardes, energy systems, and the power of the placebo effect. His current research explores the holistic power of revelation found in disinformation campaigns, folklore, and magical thinking. You will come to his openings and buy things.

Galeria Nicodim featured in Elephant Magazine's 'Bucharest: A Creative City Full of Contradictions'

Galeria Nicodim featured in Elephant Magazine's 'Bucharest: A Creative City Full of Contradictions'

Elephant Magazine | July 9, 2018

If Bucharest’s contemporary art scene has a nexus, it is in the elegant roads to the Piața Revoluției’s north-east, which boasts a smattering of small venues. But many of the city’s finest galleries stand away from this core. Galeria Nicodim, in the almost rural-seeming northern suburbs past Herăstrău Park, takes this to extremes. Its eponymous owner, Mihai Nicodim, emigrated to the US in the 1980s and opened his first gallery in LA in 2006....

How Simphiwe Ndzube employs the surreal in ‘Waiting for Mulungu’ at the CC Foundation, Shanghai

How Simphiwe Ndzube employs the surreal in ‘Waiting for Mulungu’ at the CC Foundation, Shanghai

Andrew Stooke in Art Africa | June 21, 2018

In likeness to the surrealists, who turned to absurd and fantastical symbolic imagery as a purgative answer to the gruesome folly of industrialized warfare, Ndzube employs bizarre scenarios, and the juxtaposition of incongruous elements extracted from everyday life, to respond to more recent chapters of violence and injustice. The results are both optimistic and cathartic: an eclipse is a moment of change and a lamp a sign of enlightenment. Even a traffic cone gently directs a new route.

Congrats to Simphiwe Ndzube for his inclusion on Forbes Africa's list of 30 Creatives Under 30!

Forbes Africa | June 4, 2018

Ndzube has always had a love for art. In the early stages of his career, he told stories inspired by the struggles faced by township residents, specifically in Masiphumelele where he grew up. “I’ve always been involved as a creative growing up, taking formal and informal art classes, dancing, and then later going to art school. Art School gave me the confidence and a bigger perspective of the art world and that’s how I went in, often times blindly,” he says....

Ecaterina Vrana's 'Between Two Worlds' at GYNP Gallery opens June 7 in Berlin

Ecaterina Vrana's 'Between Two Worlds' at GYNP Gallery opens June 7 in Berlin

GYNP Gallery, Berlin | June 7 – August 3, 2018

The work of the Romanian artist Ecaterina Vrana (born 1969 in Constanta, Romania) is based on „la petite histoire” of her own existence. At the same time, it appears like a library of the past, in which individual fragmentary, kaleidoscopic details can be found out of memory. This revitalization takes place in the context of a subjective spontaneity, without an intentional dramaturgy. Ecaterina’s large-format paintings are the subject of subtle observations; claiming a reinterpretation of a past marked by illness they become a plea for the joy of life. Inspiration comes out of your own life instead out of theory.

Simphiwe Ndzube's first solo show in China: 'Waiting for Mulungu' at the CC Foundation, Shanghai

Simphiwe Ndzube's first solo show in China: 'Waiting for Mulungu' at the CC Foundation, Shanghai

Hosted by the CC Foundation, Shanghai | June 2–August 12, 2018

The Swahili word “Mulungu” means God. It originally described white people who assumed a god-like position of power in the country. By adapting the title from Samuel Becket's Waiting For Godot, Ndzube examines the notion of theater, the tragic, and the epic, while investigating the collective psyche of black people, proposing a different set of vocabulary outside the Eurocentric legacy, and participating in activism of the global black community whose defiant spirit has given birth to an enormous range of paradigms of resistance, solidarity, and celebration.

Wilde Reiter is, ultimately, an evolution of work centralized around personal narrative, cultural narrative, and the subjective marriage of the two as seen through a lens that pushes the viewer to evaluate their stance on the subject matter in a Brechtian manner—making the familiar strange.

Paris Marais | April 28–June 16, 2018

The title of this exhibition “Jungles in Paris” has been borrowed from the Henri Rousseau exhibition at Tate Modern in 2005-06 (later show at Grand Palais, Paris and National Gallery, Washington). The visual tension created by the juxtaposition of two seemingly disparate environments (the sophisticated urban Paris versus the exotic wild untethered jungle) is the foundation for Ghenie’s new body of work.

Welcome Ben Lee Ritchie Handler as Nicodim Gallery's New Global Director

Welcome Ben Lee Ritchie Handler as Nicodim Gallery's New Global Director

July 27, 2017

Nicodim Gallery is pleased to introduce its new Global Director, Benjamin Lee Ritchie Handler. Touched by a sculptor at a very young age, Ritchie Handler knew he wanted to be involved with the arts as soon as she exposed herself to him. While earning a Masters degree in Library and Information Science at UCLA, Ritchie Handler toured internationally with a rock band and worked at a number of Los Angeles-based art institutions including The Hammer, LACMA, and MOCA. In 2011, he landed at Gagosian in Beverly Hills as an Archivist and Librarian. Ritchie Handler’s first project with Nicodim Gallery will be a group show titled Homeward Bound, which opens in Los Angeles October 2017.

Razvan Boar: Works

Razvan Boar: Works

June 2017

"The lure of abstraction is a thread that gets pulled taut inside me. I hold my subjectivity out to it like a rose that wilts in the face of indifference. Standing in front of a Razvan Boar painting loops that thread into a cat’s cradle of multidimensional looking. My heart, she pinches the X, whorls around, and opens up—straight lines twisted into new patterns of thinking.”
(excerpt from Twisting the Narrative Thread by Christina Catherine Martinez)

LU Song featured in a solo exhibition at OCAT Museum, Xi'An: 'FLOW'

LU Song featured in a solo exhibition at OCAT Museum, Xi'An: 'FLOW'

OCAT Museum, Xi'an | March 4 – May 28, 2017

In his painting, Beijing-based Lu Song also wanders through the shifting landscapes that are evolving on the edge of urban environments. Similar to the visual beauty that Li Xiaofei finds in assembly lines, Lu Song’s brooding vision, at times magical, at other darkened by a haunting disquiet, lulls viewers into a duplicitous mood of serenity before awaking us to its deeper message.

Omul Negru – Edition 666

Omul Negru – Edition 666

August 2016

Do you like ghost stories? Want some new nightmares?

The invocation of Omul Negru at Galeria Nicodim in Bucharest, and then again with its resurrection at Nicodim Gallery in Los Angeles was an alignment of anthropology, ritual magic and sacrilegious geometry set inside curatorial red rooms. The corresponding codex is at once a grimoire and a folklore as much as it is an exhibition catalogue and an anthology of evil. It will define a new kind of pornography and should not be treated lightly as it possesses the most evil representations of humankind's darkest nadir.

The book contains texts from Aaron Moulton, Alissa Bennett, Dr. Philip Zimbardo, Reverend Jim Jones, Albert Fish, et al.
