Stephen O'Malley (solo) @ "The Old, the New, the Different" exhibition @ Bern Kunsthalle
"The Old, the New, the Different" is an all-painting exhibition which gathers the works of about thirty Swiss and international artists.
The oldest work on display, by Luigi Lurati, dates back to 1965, while the youngest artist in the exhibition, Vittorio Brodmann, was born in 1987.
The premise of the show is that painting functions as a perceptual model of the world we inhabit. Rather than attempt to define what a painting is or why people go about making them, this collection of vastly different works aims to give a paradoxical and rich picture of how the world feels.

Attila Csihar & Stephen O'Malley duo @ Centre Pompidou
Duo performance as part of the Dennis Cooper & Gisèle Vienne curated TEENAGE HALLUCINATION sequence, part of Le Nouveau Festival 2012.
"Attila Csihar and Stephen O'Malley have worked together for several years on the group SUNN O))), over the course of severa lineups,l live and studio albums and most importantly on stage for many concerts across 4 continents. They also have played together in the O))) fringe group GRAVETEMPLE (with Oren Ambarchi) and collaborated together with the sculptor Banks Violette (Maureen Paley, London 2006 & Team Gallery / Gladstone Gallery, NYC 2007). Their collaborative nature focuses toward a state of existential meditation allowing an evolution of conscious perception through the incredible and massive power of sound. Their duo here at Pompidou will present several "shorter" pieces written and improvised specifically for the event."
