Glastonbury 2011. As Fenech-Soler’s set draws to a close in a packed tent filled with people who knew and adored their songs, the band’s four members experience a flood of emotions. Fenech-Soler had reached a point that all young bands dream about- huge label backing, play-listed at BBC Radio One, a sold out tour and a premiere set at UK’s most storied festival. Their first release in the states will be an EP out on SO Recordings/ Caroline this March. The EP serves as an introduction to the band. The compilation features a “Cult of Romance” re-mix compliments of super-producer and early supporter Alan Braxe; an Alex Metric re-mix of “Lies”; their mega-hit “Stop and Stare” and the recently released dance track “In Our Blood.” In addition to this first EP, the band will have a special Record Sore Day Release in April featuring remixes by Yuksek, Gemini, Chainsmokers and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Their full album is due this summer. Having overcome a multitude of challenges, finally releasing their music in the US signifies the completion of Fenech-Soler’s rebirth. This time they can control their own destiny.

Small Museum for an American Metaphor is an exhibition which brings together European perspectives on the American West, and more specifically, the particularities embedded in the idealized fictions surrounding it. The visual argument here is that there is a certain architectonic “idea” that dwells on the celebration of Endlessness as mythicized in the American West. The metaphor is the base for an architecture that blurs the distinction between building and object, collapsing the different scales. It is an architecture that celebrates the fiction of the “wide open” and seeks to re-evaluate/reinterpret the world as a gigantic interior. In that context, a successful intervention is able to define hierarchies, carve out places, and make shared points of reference. The exhibition, much in the tradition of showcasing objects in a defined space, such as a cabinet, “collects”artworks, architectural models, drawings and other elements that consciously fade the distinction between object and representation.
Ultimately it is a show on urban strategies, but starting from the conviction that these very strategies can only be conveyed if presented in an oblique way. The show proposes a method that understands beauty and hedonism not so much as the enemy of hierarchy and organization, but despite all senses of responsibility, its driving force.
