The Art Institute of Chicago – Until Sep 05, 2022 Chicago (US)


This groundbreaking retrospective sheds new light not only on how this pivotal artist created his works, but also on why his art remains so vital today.

Paul Cézanne (French, 1839-1906) pursued a pair of questions throughout his life: Could a painter create works of art one sensation at a time? And, if so, would images made this way be somehow more true to life than those made by other means?


This approach to artistic creation was complex and set Cézanne apart from the Impressionist circle and modern art as a whole. It is perhaps unsurprising that his fellow artists were among the first to recognize the value of his singular and, at the time, seemingly unsophisticated approaches to color, technique and materiality. As such, he came to be considered an “artist’s artist”. Indeed many of his supporters and admirers. Whom Claude Monet and Camille Pissarro in the 19th century and Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso in the 20th century, called Cézanne “the greatest of us all. Today, more than a hundred years after the completion of Cézanne’s last works, artists always revere his commitment to upholding personal truth in the act of artistic creation.


This exhibition is the first major retrospective of the artist’s work in the United States for more than 25 years and the first exhibition on Cézanne organized by The Art Institute of Chicago for more than 70 years. Planned in coordination with Tate Modern. This ambitious project explores Cézanne’s work across media and genres with 80 oil paintings. 40 watercolors and drawings and two complete sketchbooks. This exceptional range encompasses the range of Cézanne’s emblematic subjects and series. Little known early allegorical paintings. Impressionist landscapes, paintings of the Montagne Sainte Victoire. Portraits and Scenes of Bathers and includes both well-known works and rarely seen compositions from the public and private. collections in North and South America, Europe and Asia.

The artist’s palette.

This extraordinary breadth of works is accompanied by a cutting-edge technical analysis of the artist’s palette. From the construction of composition and the creation of marks, deepening our understanding of how Cézanne conceived and developed his famous deliberate, non-linear process. The exhibition also sheds light on the pioneering path that Cézanne traced for successive generations of artists. Through these complementary perspectives. Art historians, practicing artists and curators. This unique exhibition in a generation reframes Cézanne, a giant in the history of art, for our own time.

Picasso, shared and divided.
The artist and his image in East and West Germany.
Museum Ludwig – Sep 25 to Jan 30, 2022 Köln (Germany)


What do we associate with Pablo Picasso? And what associations with him did the German people have in mind during the postwar years, when he was at the height of his glory? Much more than us: it is the central idea of ​​the exhibition, which reveals a forgotten scale, tension and productivity of these appropriations. It is not just about the artist, but his audience, who interpreted Picasso’s art in very different ways in the capitalist West and in the socialist East. The German Picasso was divided, but this division also stimulated reception. Because everyone questioned their art, he had something to say for everyone.

Political works.

The exhibition presents political works. Like the painting Massacre in Korea (1951) at the Picasso Museum in Paris. These stand alongside some 150 pieces reflecting the impact of Picasso’s work. As well as a theater curtain from the Berliner Ensemble on which Bertolt Brecht had “my brother Picasso’s militant peace dove” painted.

The mystery of Picasso.

Picasso served as a figurehead and symbol for both systems and in the two German states. He was a member of the French Communist Party and supported the liberation struggles as well as the peace conferences. But he lived in the West and allowed bourgeois critics to conventionalize him as an apolitical genius, “the mystery of Picasso”. What works were shown under socialism. Which ones under capitalism? How was his work transmitted? Has the West seen only art, and the East its politics? And how did the artist see things himself? Picasso, Shared and Divided examines the image people took of Picasso’s paintings in the two Germanies. One of the targets is the Picasso collection by Peter and Irene Ludwig, which remains one of the most important to this day. When the Ludwigs made parts of it available to the GDR, they multiplied the number of works exhibited there by several.

Eran Schaerf.

Two new works have been commissioned for the exhibition. The exhibition architecture designed by artist Eran Schaerf connects the exhibitions without prioritizing works of art and their social use. The wooden installations, diagonal partitions and bare walls of the museum give the impression of a deliberate incompleteness. The individual exhibitions remain anchored in their context. How we make them our own remains evident. Peter Nestler’s film Picasso in Vallauris was shot in January 2020 to incorporate Picasso’s War and Peace mural in the exhibition. The film focuses on Picasso’s production as well as his political connections and connections, and it looks at the people who live in Vallauris today in that context.

Alexander Calder – Great Yellow Sun
Tel Aviv Museum of Art – Until August 15, 2021 Tel Aviv (Israel)


American-born artist Alexander Calder (1898-1976). One of the most fascinating figures of modern art of the twentieth century, developed her artistic language in New York and Paris in the interwar period. His work emerged alongside avant-garde notions of surrealism. Dada and abstraction. Yet he has developed a unique style of his own.


The exhibition offers a glimpse into Calder’s world through works he has created in various media. Spanning more than five decades of his career. The first pencil drawings, made in 1925. One of his very last mobiles, created in 1976, the year of his death. The title of the exhibition, Great Yellow Sun (taken from one of his gouaches), reflects three significant elements of his abstractions. Scale, color and shape. The reference to the sun also suggests another stimulating reading of the artist’s production. Calder’s work can be seen as an exploration of energetic forces. It combines aesthetics and the fourth dimension with scientific knowledge of physics. Mathematics and mechanics. Asked about the way art is made, Calder replied: “Outside of volumes, of movement, of spaces delimited by large space, the universe”.

Gouache paintings.

The exhibition focuses on a lesser-known part of Calder’s production. His gouache paintings. Gouaches, a medium he began to explore in the 1940s. It has become one of his most prolific works. They were rarely a complement to his sculptural works, and were not preparatory drawings or exercises in color or iconography. Rather, it was an independent practice within Calder’s work. Throughout his career, has been marked by constant transitions from two-dimensional forms to three-dimensional forms and vice versa. The wide range of gouaches presented in the exhibition express two contrasting aspects of his work. The creation of multiplicity and variability, while maintaining stylistic consistency and consistency.

Primitive symbols.

The qualities of gouache paint as a quick-drying medium with high opacity allowed Calder a great deal of freedom to experiment. Immediacy and impulsiveness. The paintings represent basic shapes (circles, triangles, spirals). Alongside primitive symbols (sun, moon, stars). Elements of ancient civilizations (masks, pyramids, boomerangs) and motifs from nature (flowers, butterflies, sea creatures). Using minimalist means, this vocabulary of simple images and a palette of bright colors and black and white. Calder returned to the simplicity of the fundamentals, both current and metaphysical. This can be seen as an expression of his desire to find a place of innocence and primitive existence that is not yet shaped by knowledge. Culture and self-awareness.

The absence of Mark Manders
Museum of Contemporary Art – Until June 20, 2021 Tokyo (Japan)


The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo (MOT) is delighted to present the first solo exhibition in a museum of Japanese art by Mark Manders. A Dutch artist who occupies a unique position on the contemporary art scene.

The history of art.

For this solo exhibition, Manders designed the entire exhibition as the installation of a single work. Building. The individual works are assembled from images based on the history of art. Personal memories. of statues and words. Also, various furniture and other objects. For the viewer, they invoke complex emotions. Distort the sense of time and encourage reflection and introspection. Each independent work is fascinating in isolation. However, being part of a larger picture reveals even more captivating new aspects. Each work manifests itself as a part of this imaginary building. The real Manders who produce the works and the self-portrait of the imaginary Manders mingle. Disappear and reappear as they draw the viewer into a fictional space. At the same time, the individual works are interchangeable. Like the words in a sentence, they can be interchanged depending on the room and the setting.

The absence.

For this reason, the imaginary building as a whole looks like an automatic mechanism in constant modification and updating. Absence in the title is one of the keywords behind all of Manders’s work. It has multiple meanings, including the reference to stillness. To the feeling that what can be seen in an installation is a moment frozen in time. Traces of missing occupants. The way the agency oscillates between the real artist and the imaginary artist.

It can also be taken to mean that the work is autonomous. Able to maintain an independent existence even if the artist is absent. The world of Manders continues to captivate those who enter it. It encourages them to reconsider their thoughts about the meaning of art. Their thoughts about time and experiences of human life and the imagination. This solo exhibition is a very valuable opportunity to appreciate in depth the work of Manders. To observe its unique structure. Viewers are recommended to sharpen their senses and take their time to fully experience this world.

It took a whole artistic event to account for this analogy between the two artists.

Joan Mitchell and Jean-Paul Riopelle, a couple that still fascinates today. Similarly, if their love story ended badly. When they meet in 1955 in Paris. He has painted for three years small rectangles of color that look like mosaics. She is still under the influence of the first generation of American abstract artists. Of which one of the most eminent figures remains Willem de Kooning. Both have very different universes. Riopelle’s art is powerful and instinctive. While Mitchell’s is much more cerebral and intellectual.

The Parian years.

Yet it would be naïve to think that these artists did not influence each other. Throughout their life together, advising and exchanging on their impressions. By bringing together some fifteen works. The exhibition gives us to see the reciprocal influence of these two artists. She focuses on their Parisian years. Period of their meeting and their first exchanges with Jean Fournier. We are pleased to find works deeply related to the history of the gallery. Like an oil on canvas realized in 1964 by Riopelle. A work exhibited during the inauguration of the space.

Edvard Munch

Bristish Museum – Until July 21, 2019 London (England)


Loneliness, anxiety, jealousy, fear and torment. Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944). Probably wasn’t much fun at parties. But he sure had a knack for art. This exhibition doesn’t make for easy viewing. It’s heavy, dour stuff that’ll hang over you like a dark cloud.

But don’t come here expecting a massive in-depth show of his iconic paintings. Tthis is all about his prints. Munch worked extensively with woodcuts. Lithographs and etchings, and the results are often lovely.


Everything that’s in Munch’s paintings. Except for colour – is also in his prints. There are lovers whose bodies merge. Couples tearing themselves apart in separation. Solitary figures lost in unbearable anguish. Beautiful unattainable women. ‘The Kiss’ is filled with a naked lust that’s almost Shockingly intense; the eyes of the lovers in ‘Attraction I’ are sunken and hollow; and ‘. The Scream’ – yes, it’s here, relax – is colourless. Stark and almost more haunted than the painted version.

One of photography’s truths is that the best street photographers learn to be invisible or. At the very
least, to convince themselves that they are. Over the years, I’ve walked the streets with Henri CartierBresson. Garry Winogrand. Tony Ray-Jones. Diane Arbus. Lee Friedlander, Tod Papageorge, and some of today’s younger shooters. Gus Powell. Melanie Einzig. Ben Ingham, and Matt Stuart. And we have all developed our own sleight-of-hand street act. We dodge, feint, twirl, two-step, and eye-shift our way through crowds and rallies. Along avenues and backstreets. In parks and on beaches. Anywhere that ordinary life draws our attention and desire. It is our invisibility that helps us get away with stealing fire from the gods.

This exhibition is intended as a form of adventure that invites both physical and imaginative participation. The body in Gormley’s work is not a protagonist in a narrative. Nor an ideal, a portrait or a memorial. It is the body in and as space.

Early experimental sculptures, objects and drawings. Often made using his own body as a primary tool, material and subject. Are brought together with large scale environments made especially for the RA. Using organic. Industrial and elemental materials, such as iron. Steel. Lead. Seawater and clay. The solidity and certainty of sculpture is put to the test. Acknowledging entropy, disintegration. The experience of disorientation. Our understanding of matter itself is under scrutiny. What it means to have a body. When every ‘thing’ is essentially space and energy.

Vanessa Safavi

The Breeder participates at Condo London 2019, hosted at The Approach, with a presentation of works Vanessa Safavi.

Vanessa Safavi uses the conceptual systems of language. And a personal narrative to explore in her work the experience of the dearticulated body. Questioning the relationship between the brain and the flesh. Her work recalls the weakness of our bodies and also. The poetry that emerges from them. She employs the modernist idiom of geometric abstraction. And the fluorescent-flavoured vernacular of contemporary pop culture. Delineating a landscape where both languages are spoken fluently. Silicone is a recurrent medium in her works. As the artist is interested in its materiality and is fascinated. By its analogy with the human body and skin.

Vanessa Safavi (1980) is Swiss-Iranian and she lives and works in Berlin.She has been awarded the Luci d’Artista award in Turin (2013).

The only female artist to be part of the London Group. Paula Rego set herself apart with her highly figurative. Literary, incisive and unusual work.

Born in Lisbon in 1935. Paula Rego left Portugal and Salazar’s oppressive dictatorship. As an adolescent to study in London. Where she has now lived for over fifty years. As a student at the Slade School of Arts. She rubbed shoulders with the likes of Francis Bacon. Lucian Freud. Frank Auerbach and David Hockney.

Dark narratives. Ser paintings seem to be taken from a cruel tale. And evoke the female condition in strange scenes. Going against social codes. “My favourite themes are power games and hierarchies. I always want to turn things on their heads. To upset the established order, to change heroines and idiots”.

A role most notably represented here by an immersive psychedelic installation from 1962 titled. Continual Light Cylinder.

M. C. ESCHER (1892-1972)

National Gallery of Victoria – Until Apr 07, 2019 Melbourne (Australia)


The National Gallery of Victoria is bringing a world-first exhibition of works by MC Escher to Melbourne this summer. Between Two Worlds | Escher X nendo will feature more than 160 prints and drawings from the renowned Dutch artist. As well as an immersive Escher-inspired environment created by Japanese design studio Nendo.

We can’t wait to see how they’ll respond to Escher’s most iconic image. The physically impossible, Hogwarts-esque staircases.

Escher rose to prominence in the 20th-century art world for his mind-bending and mathematically complex works like. ‘Hand with Reflecting Sphere’. ‘Relativity’ and ‘Balcony’. Though he considered himself to have little mathematical ability. Sis art has become iconic for its seamless tessellation, warped perspectives and impossible objects. Like endless, connected staircases and mirrored self-portraits.

Luis Camnitzer

Museo Reina Sofía – Until March 04, 2019 Madrid (Spain)


This retrospective offers a global. Contextualised view of Luis Camnitzer’s multi-faceted work. Spanning nearly sixty years. As an essayist. Art critic. Curator. Teacher. Lecturer and a creator of objects, actions and musical compositions, Camnitzer focuses on art’s transformative capacity. Viewing it essentially as a product of reflection. His practice, whether it be artistic. Or through his essays or teaching. Is defined by its approach to the controversial issues of our times.

the criticism of art-commodity, the demystification. And obsolescence of the role of the artist in consumer society. The strategies power uses to impose its logic and perpetuate its control. Or the capacity of neoliberal societies to turn education. Into an instrument of propaganda and thus render it irrelevant. All through the signifying role of language. With its ambiguities and arbitrariness. And images’ power to evoke. With these tools Camnitzer seeks to awaken the active participation. Of the viewer and their involvement in the artistic process.

Franz West

A retrospective of Austrian artist Franz West at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Begins where most biographical tales perhaps should – with his mother. Emilie West. Born to a well-to-do Viennese Jewish family. She espoused communist ideals and the artist’s father, Ferdinand Zokan, a Serbian coal merchant. The family lived in a public housing complex. Out of which Emilie ran a private dental practice. Her clients included many artists and poets. Among them Reinhard Priessnit. A poet and theorist who would give the name Paßstücke (Adaptives). To West’s most iconic series of sculptures. This early contact with Vienna’s artistic milieu. Would have a profound impact on the young West’s later career. As would the sounds of whirling drills. And the image of his mother creating white and pink moulds of teeth from plaster and resin.

Created between 1978 and 1979. Shadows is one of Andy’s most abstract and enigmatic pieces. Consisting of variously colored silk screened. Canvases hung edge-to-edge in a site-specific installation. Some 102 paintings were produced in all. Though the total number of panels varies from one location. To the next, depending on the dimensions of a given space. Each silk screen is limited to a palette of two contrasting colors. While the picture itself—which flips between positive. And negative—comes from the same photo of the eponymous subject taken at Warhol’s Factory studio. Taken together, Shadows resembles a film strip capturing an indeterminate play of light.

Capture and interpret live in New York City in many-layered compositions. As well as intimate scenes as nobody had done before.

Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) was a pioneer of abstract painting, though admittedly. Something of an accidental one. Although she produced purely non-objective paintings. Well before the likes of Vassily Kandinsky or Kasimir Malevich. She created them as part of her involvement in occult and mystical practices. That sought contact with the spirit realm. When Klint did exhibit. She mostly showed conventional portraits and landscapes. Nonetheless, there’s no denying that the Swedish artist anticipated one of the most important aesthetic revolutions in 20th-century art. This show takes the measure of her singular artistic achievement.

Staged entirely for the camera His work is a form of drag that involves elaborate customs and sets to deconstruct icons of pop culture and art history—and. Very often, the overlap between the two. Famous paintings and photos are the grist for his work. Which channels Marilyn Monroe. Che Guevara. Frida Kahlo and Vincent Van Gogh, among many others.

His work has now achieved the fame it deserves. But the opportunities to appreciate its complexity have been too rare here. This exhibition sets out to consider it in a new light while. Also inviting the viewer to reflect on the question of large-format paintings.

The exhibition itinerary begins with Zao Wou-Ki’s adoption of a new, “abstract” approach – even. If he found the term too restrictive. With the 1956 painting titled Traversée des apparences. This decisive step preceded a first stay in the United States, in 1957. That encouraged him in his quest for an ever-larger picture space.

Is on view for the first time in nearly a decade. TV Clock consists of 24 color televisions mounted upright on pedestals that are arranged in a gentle arc. And displayed in a darkened space. Paik created each electronic image by manipulating the television to compress its red, green. And blue color into a single line against a black background. Called a “fixed-image television” by Paik. Each TV does not involve a videotape. disc, or computer chip but an image.

The artist created by ingenious manipulation of electronic elements. Read in sequence, each static line tumbles. Into the next to form a dynamic yet elegantly spare. Rhythm that resembles a universally recognized way to measure time. A crucial work in Paik’s long career. TV Clock offers audiences the chance to experience. The art and thought of one of the 20th century’s most innovative. And enduringly vital artists.

On the ground floor. He stages a kind of hiking trail with gravel and small sculpted ponds. As if it were a small, indoor park. In which the spectator discovers life-size sculpted figures of children and
a young woman. These silent figures in everyday poses. All of them with their eyes closed. Seem lost in thought yet simultaneously caught in a moment of high concentration. There is, for example, a boy meditatively holding a crystal ball in his hands. A boy who just closed his eyes before shooting. An arrow with a toy bow, and a young woman listening to music.

The Studio Museum in Harlem (1983) and the New Museum (1993). A moment of “re-discovery”. About a dozen years finally put him on the map as an artist to contend with. As appreciation grew for his over-all abstracted paintings. That touched on themes from race to cosmology. This show introduces viewers to his sculptures. A heretofore, little-known aspect of his practice notable for its frequent references to African art.

Highly reflective surfaces integrate the environment and viewer into the work. In his “minus objects”. Sculptures that explore how objects become artworks through the ideas they express.

An early performance art innovator. Pistoletto founded The Zoo in the late 1960s. Which joined artists. Intellectuals, and the public for collaborative “actions”. That unified art and daily life.

Anselm Kiefer

White Cube Gallery – Until Aug 25, 2018 (Hong Kong)


Anselm Kiefer has produced a diverse body of work comprising painting. Sculpture and installation that has made him one of the most important European artists of the past four decades.

After studying law, and Romance languages and literature. Kiefer devoted himself entirely to painting. He attended the School of Fine Arts at Fribourg-in-Brisgau. Then the Art Academy in Karlsruhe, while maintaining contact with Joseph Beuys. But soon began to develop his own deliberately indigenous set of subjects and symbols. That he used to explore the fraught territory of German history and identity. In his artistic language. Physical materiality and visual complexity enliven his themes and content with a rich. Vibrant tactility.

His subject-matter ranges from sources as diverse as Teutonic Mythology and history. Alchemy and the nature of belief. All depicted in a bewildering variety of materials. Including oil paint. Dirt. Lead. Photography. Woodcuts, sand, straw and all manner of organic material. By adding found materials to the painted surface of his immense tableaux. He invents a compelling third space between painting and sculpture. Recent work has broadened his range yet further, and in 2005 he showed a series of paintings based around the little-known work of the modernist poet Velimir Chlebnikov (1885-1922). Few contemporary artists match Kiefer’s epic reach, and his work consistently balances powerful imagery with acute critical analysis.

Erwin Wurm’s outdoor installation

It’s a gray, dreary day at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, on Furman Street. And Austrian sculptor Erwin Wurm is going somewhat off topic whil. Discussing his new installation for the Public Art Fund. “In my country, it’s an insult to call someone a virsli”. He says, referring to a local variety of sausage. “If you call someone a virsli. It means you’re calling him, um, how would you say?” A dick? “A dick, yes.”

Hot Dog Bus.

Sometimes a virsli is just a virsli. Though for the purposes of Wurm’s project, Hot Dog Bus. This delicacy, or rather its American cousin, is being elevated to art. The piece comprises a mustard-colored VW bus. That is handing out free hot dogs this summer at Brooklyn Bridge Park. The vehicle itself looks like it has consumed too many tube steaks. Bulging across its grill. Trunk and fenders as if it were wearing the automotive equivalent of a fat suit. “I work quite often with sausages”. Says Wurm, “because it’s such an iconic Middle-European food.”

This “fairy tale” as the artist calls it. Also, is joined by paintings. Sculptures and backlit digital prints on vinyl. Hence, that find inspiration in sources ranging from Richard Bach’s new age-y tale. Jonathan Livingstone Seagull. To the work of the 19th-century English Romantic landscapist. Samuel Palmer.

John Mawurndjul

Museum of Contemporary Art – Until Sep 23, 2018 Australia, Sydney

Bark painting is among the most recognisable Aboriginal art, but you mightn’t know that it was only popularised in the 1930s. Until then, the familiar imagery was used as body paint and in caves. Occasionally the patterns were painted onto bark as a record of the designs, but it’s only relatively recently that the bark has been considered its own canvas.

One of the greatest exponents of bark painting – and one of the greatest exponents of Aboriginal art in general. Is John Mawurndjul, who rose to international fame in the late 1980s and ‘90s. The Kuninjku artist, based in Arnhem Land, is getting a major career retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art, made up of 165 works.


They’ll take over the third level of the MCA this winter, the same space where English artist and provocateur Grayson Perry presented a blockbuster show in 2015. At the time, Perry sparked debate when he controversially said Aboriginal art should not be considered contemporary art.

Clothilde Bullen, one of the curators behind Mawurndjul’s exhibition and a Wardandi (Nyoongar). Aboriginal woman, strongly disagrees. “I think all Aboriginal art being made here and now is contemporary, and I’d absolutely stand by that.” she says. “But it’s OK that [Perry] is given the opportunity to say those things at the MCA, and we have this kind of rebuttal.”

Not only is Mawurndjul one of the major pioneers of the bark medium. He has evolved and pushed traditional practices, like rarrk, which refers to a close and meticulous cross-hatching that creates an almost shimmering effect on the bark. And he has been deeply involved in shaping the narrative and layout of this exhibition, which explores elements of Kuninjku culture and then covers parts of his country in Central Arnhem Land.

“In a sense, you’re working through country in the way you should – in the way John would want you to walk through,” Bullen says. “We’ve had a collaborative approach, and allowing the artist to guide what we do rather than us being the gatekeeper – that’s a very contemporary approach to Aboriginal curation.”


The exhibition will also show his evolution as an artist, starting with figurative works which show natural elements like barramundi, frogs and turtles. In his mid-career, he started to push his use of ‘rarrk’ even further with paintings of the weeks-long Mardayin ceremonies that take place in Arnhem land. In the later stages of his career, his work became more abstract.

Bullen says that although both Mawurndjul and the MCA consider his work contemporary, his output stands on its own terms. And while his work is imbued with stories and images stretching back thousands of years, visitors shouldn’t be worried about interpreting the paintings incorrectly.

“It’s actually okay – it’s an artwork and people will have different experiences with it and different takes on it, and can interpret it in lots of different ways. I think people need to drop that fear.”

Centre Pompidou Metz – Until August 20, 2018 Metz (France)

Pablo Picasso and Dora Maar, the Delaunay’s, Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz, Man Ray and Lee Miller, the Eames’s are some of the around forty artist couples showcased in this important cross-topical exhibition organized by Centre Pompidou-Metz in collaboration with Barbican Centre, London. With a comprehensive mix of visual arts, architecture, design, cinema, and literature from the first half of the twentieth century, this show displays master-pieces, including some one hundred from Centre Pompidou, Musée national d’art moderne and from international prestigious collections.

This exihibition looks into creative pair-work and the mechanisms of an artistic companionship. Does each approach dissolve into one, are they complementary or do they oppose each other? Here, are explored the creative processes and artistic approaches which interact and evolve within the intimacy of a twosome to give us a broader understanding of Art History and the soul and fringes of its essential movements. The very idea of modernity, as impacted by social, artistic and technical evolutions. Is reviewed here through the prism of the couple.

Daniel Buren

Carriageworks – Until Aug 12, 2018 Sydney (Australia)


Daniel Buren is one of France’s leading contemporary artists and has exhibited work at an astonishing ten Venice Biennales. He’s best known for his site-specific stripe installations, and there’ll be glimpses of those stripes (which have featured in his artworks since the 1960s), in the mammoth installation he’s bringing to Carriageworks.

‘Like Child’s Play’ features 100 oversized children’s wooden block toys arranged into a colourful cityscape. It’ll be a little like stepping into a Toy Story movie. The toys that we once played with and held dominance over as children now tower high above our heads. The installation was first shown in 2014 at Musée d’Art moderne et contemporain of Strasbourg in France.

Alberto Giacometti

The Guggenheim Museum – June 8/Sept 12, 2018 New-York

When they think of him at all, most people remember Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966) as the artist who created skinny figures. That’s true, of course, though it neglects the context in which he made those sculptures in the late 1940s. After war and genocide left the world both devastated and numb. Though it may be simplistic to draw a correlation between the death camps and Giacometti’s. Emaciated forms, his treatment of the body. Transforming it into something resembling a burnt matchstick, exemplified a zeitgeist stunned by catastrophe. The Guggenheim’s magisterial survey of his career affirms as much, while noting that Giacometti defined the figure in existential terms. As a manifestation of the vulnerability, anguish and mystery of the human condition.

Born in Switzerland into a family of artists, Giacometti moved, in 1922. To study art in Paris, where he discovered the work of Constantin Brancusi and Pablo Picasso. He assimilated aspects of their styles. Also found inspiration in the artifacts of ancient cultures, like the Bronze Age’s Cycladic civilization. All of these influences are evident in Giacometti’s totemic sculpture Spoon Woman (1927)., In which a female torso takes the shape of the eponymous implement. A rather blatant vaginal reference that also recalls a fertility fetish.

André Breton.

Around this time, Giacometti fell under the sway of André Breton and the Surrealists, a group known for hitting the mother lode of eroticism by mining the subconscious for subject matter. Giacometti followed suit with his seminal 1932 construction, The Palace at 4 a.m. (which is not on display, though a preparatory study of it is). By his own admission, the piece—a sort of 3D drawing of a house or stage set haunted by an enigmatic cast that includes a woman, a spinal column and a flying creature—came out of a torrid love affair that consumed him for six months, suggesting that Palace totes some major sexual baggage. In any case, Giacometti drifted away from Surrealism by the mid-1930s.


He remained in Paris after the Nazi takeover in 1940, but a 1941 trip to Geneva to visit his mother left him in exile after he was denied reentry into France. He sat out World War II in a hotel room. Where he made work at a diminished scale, necessitated by his cramped surroundings.

Whether due to his isolation during the war or the horrors precipitated by it, Giacometti, upon returning to Paris in 1946. Embarked on the attenuated figuration that would remain his signature style until his death in 1966. His postwar reunion with friends and family also sparked a body of portrait paintings featuring people close to him.

Regardless of medium or personal familiarity, though. Giacometti set his subjects at a seemingly unbridgeable distance from the viewer. His use of dashed-off schematic lines for his portraits, and gnarled textures for his sculpture.Cconveys the sense of something consumed or atomized by elemental forces—as indeed the world had been by 1945. Since then, Giacometti’s art has continued to remind us of humanity’s inability to escape its own folly.

Antoni Tàpies

Fundació Antoni Tàpies – Until 24 Feb 2019 Barcelona, (Espagne)

Antoni Tàpies exploded on to the art scene in the 1950s when he began to incorporate waste paper, mud and rags into his paintings, eventually moving on to the point where his works included whole pieces of furniture, running water and girders. Today, he’s Barcelona’s most celebrated living artist, and his trademark scribbled and paint-daubed pieces are sought after for everything from wine bottle labels to theatre posters.

The artist set up the Tàpies Foundation in this, the former Montaner i Simon publishing house, in 1984, dedicating it to the study and appreciation of contemporary art. In a typically contentious act, Tàpies crowned the building with a glorious tangle of aluminium piping and ragged metal netting (‘Núvol i Cadira’, or ‘Cloud and Chair’). The building remains one of the earliest examples of Modernisme to combine exposed brick and iron, and is now a cultural centre and museum dedicated to the work and life of the man himself, with exhibitions, symposiums, lectures and films.

Summer Exhibition/The Great Spectacle review – a Grayson revolution

Royal Academy – Untl 19 August, 2018 London

This year, the committee included Phyllida Barlow, Conrad Shawcross and Cornelia Parker and was helmed by none other than dotty potter and art world everyman Grayson Perry, who has given more space than ever to plucky, undiscovered amateurs. But it’s not all weekend paintbrush warriors: there are major works by the likes of Anish Kapoor, David Shrigley, David Hockney and Rose Wylie too. Even everyone’s favourite wall-botherer Banksy is involved, displaying a work of art made out of a Ukip placard, priced at £350m. £350m! Like the Brexit bus! More like Bants-y, amirite?

250 years.

Every year for the past 250 years, the Royal Academy has bravely opened its doors and allowed literally any old schmuck to have a go at getting their art on its walls. The annual Summer Exhibition is an open submission show: that means plebs and haughty fine artists alike can send in their work for consideration by a jury of Royal Academicians, who sift through thousands of works of art before choosing the best 1,300 pieces to display.

Almost everything in the Summer Exhibition is for sale, so this could be your chance to nab a bargain painting by a future superstar, or to finally invest your riches in a Tracey Emin. And this year, to help celebrate that whole 250 years of being a leading light in the UK art scene thing, the RA is taking the Summer Exhibition out into the street as well, with works by artists spilling out onto Piccadilly and Regent Street.

The Summer Exhibition is an annual highlight: 250 years of tradition, art and giving the little guy a chance. Long may it continue.

Yves Klein Exhibition

 Blenheim Art Foundation – 18July/07Oct 2018 – (England)

A major exhibition of French artist Yves Klein’s work is to go on display at Blenheim Palace from 18 July – 7 October. The show will mark what would have been the visionary French artist’s 90th birthday and will explore concepts of “beauty, sensibility and the sublime”.

Klein is considered one of the most important figures in post-war European art, combining traditional artistic mediums with innovative techniques. His imaginative creative approach influenced movements in conceptual art, minimalism and performance art; his Anthropometryseries, which will be on display at Yves Klein at Blenheim Palace, saw Klein employ models as “living brushes” to create marks on the canvases in front of a live audience, breaking down the boundaries between artistic process and finished product.

Blenheim Palace

Yves Klein at Blenheim Palace will feature a total of 50 artworks including painting, sculpture and large-scale installation. Visitors can expect to see Klein’s large-scale Monochrome Paintings,which were decisive in the artist’s fascination with and focus on the colour blue. Klein is perhaps most famous for developing his own vivid, ultramarine pigment, International Klein Blue, which became a symbol of reaching the ‘infinite’ or the ‘sublime’ through pure colour.

The exhibition is hosted by the Blenheim Art Foundation, which aims to inspire visitors of Blenheim Palace with modern and contemporary art inside the 18th-century building, and will mark the institution’s 5th anniversary.

Daniel Moquay of Yves Klein Archives said in a statement: “We are very happy to collaborate with Blenheim Art Foundation on the occasion of Yves Klein’s 90th birthday year and to present his artworks in a totally different environment from the usual exhibitions that we organise. This exhibition Art Gallery will present Yves Klein’s artworks from a new angle and bring contemporary and neo-classical art into unprecedented dialogue, as a fluid tradition.”

Museum Rodin until 22 July Paris (French)

From the 1890s onward, the art of dance was transformed, with new experiences revolutionizing what was sometimes an urbane and codifi ed form of entertainment. Rodin’s keen interest in these innovations led him to meet such exceptional figures as Hanako and Loïe Fuller. A particular highlight was his encounter with the dancers of the Cambodian royal ballet during their visit to Paris to perform at the World’s Fair. When they left, in the sculptor’s words.

They “took the beauty of the world with them”. Inspired by his complicity with the shapers of this revolution. Rodin associated dance and sculpture, both of which explore the possibilities of the human body. He turned his attention to all forms of dance. Regional and oriental folk dances. Cabaret performances, outstanding contemporary dancers, and dance as it was practiced in Antiquity. An interest he shared with Isadora Duncan.


The exhibition, centered on the “Dance Movements” series, will survey all Rodin’s research and experimentation. The sculptor used assemblages to convey the body’s tensions. Inventing audacious portés that combine effects of void and solid, balance and imbalance. Rodin’s creativity focused on expressing the life force of the body.  Itsvital energy, strength and equilibrium – just as dance explores the body’s relationship with space and weightlessness through extension. Flexibility and freedom of line.

Picasso and Dance

Palais Garnier/Paris Opera –  June 19/September 16, 2018 (French)

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) was without a doubt one of the most versatile artists of the 20th century – a painter, draftsman, sculptor and engraver. He never stopped investigating a wide range of techniques, exploring the most diverse fields and forms of expression. In the 1910s, he discovered the world of show business and started working on the creation of sets and costumes. That would mark the history of ballet. Parade (1917), The Three-Cornered Hat (1919), Pulcinella (1920) and Mercure (1924) are all major landmark works for this art. Picasso’s legacy remains alive in the Ballet repertoire of the Paris Opera, which demonstrates how important a role he played in the choreographic landscape of the time.

In dance

However, looking beyond the world of ballet, we can see that Picasso expressed an interest in dance from a young age. From the circus dancers of the 1900s. To the bacchanal scenes of the 1940s to 1960s, to the erotic dances of Picasso’s later work. Everything seemed to be a pretext to depicting bodies in movement. The dynamics of the danced movement thus featured in all of the master’s work. Sometimes going so far as to in fact fuel his artistic expression.
The exhibition held by the Bibliothèque nationale de France and the Paris National Opera explores the different aspects of Picasso’s relationship with dance. From company life and creative research, to fine arts and performing arts.

 The Musée Unterlinden, Colmar, France.

June 10 / October 29, 2018.

To coincide with Georg Baselitz’s 80th birthday, the Musée Unterlinden is devoting a major exhibition to the German artist.

The event in Colmar, entitled Corpus Baselitz. Will mark the first exhibition in a French museum of a new and significant body of works (paintings, drawings and sculptures). Produced between 2014 and 2017, in which the artist examines his own body, and through it, his place in the history of art.

Since his first inverted paintings of 1969. The representation of his own body has proliferated in Baselitz’s work with varying degrees of regularity.  Either alone or accompanied by the body of his wife Elke, in the tradition of the nude and the self-portrait.

Whilst his gaze was previously that of a distant observer, in the series of works. That he began in the winter of 2014–15. He confronts the reality of his advanced years and the ravages of time. In this introspective work, he summons up his masters (Duchamp, Dubuffet, Dix, Picasso, or De Kooning) for what resembles a descent into hell.


The mutilated, incomplete, and fragmented body. Yet the violence of the subject of old age is counterbalanced by the movement of walking downstairs (a reference to Duchamp’s 1912 work Nude Descending a Staircase). Which the inversion transforms into an upward movement. The generosity of the medium and a new painting technique transfigure the bodies, which become luminescent and vibrant.

The obsession with the subject of his body stripped bare explored by Baselitz on the cusp of his eightieth birthday and the transmutation of this black vision into a vigorous. Generous representation offered up to the public demonstrate the artist’s unwavering vital and creative energy.

The subject

The subject, the form (sometimes drawing upon medieval triptychs). The monumentality, the physical substance, and the color of the German artist’s works resonate like a contemporary echo. Of Grünewald’s panels in the Isenheim Altarpiece. The masterpiece of the Musée Unterlinden’s collections.

The exhibition constitutes an exceptional and unique tribute to a major contemporary artist. Following on from the retrospective of his work being held at the Beyeler Foundation. Near Basel from January to May 2018.

Aurélien Froment – oe

Marcelle Alix Gallery – 31 May/21 July 2018 (Paris)

Aurélien Froment’s not only reveals existing forms, but it also determines other ways of dreaming them by seeking the right transformation, that enables the past to build a future. The artist aims at making an effort of imagination to connect himself to faraway things in order to put them on a common stage and determine their importance together. In this light, he has conceived the inventory of the elements constituting the Ideal Palace of postman Cheval. A work which is so intense that only a closer vision may contribute to shedding light on this “work of one man”. Concerned about his own pace.


What these figures (imaginary animals, plants, ornaments, etc). Carved in rock and photographed separately depict. Is a different life pulse. A rhythm that the world needs as a kind of support.

These pieces translate performative thinking in relation to preexisting works: they seek to stress the path that starts with the gesture and leads towards the form, and vice versa. The exhibition will always be, for the artist, a way of not forgetting what might be called “the arising of the gesture”. The way in which the gesture enables us to truly make use of forms as much as it helps us become receptive.

Here’s the Joseph Beuys myth: the hugely influential German artist was a pilot in World War II. He crashed his Stuka over the Crimea and was found by a tribe of nomadic. Tartars who wrapped him in fat and felt to keep him warm. They saved his life.

Out of that fable came a whole career based on felt, fat, electricity and medicine. The building blocks of survival, used to help deal with his country’s tormented recent past. His work took in sculpture, drawing, performance, political activism and lectures. It’s art as spiritual first aid for a damaged national psyche, sculpture as healing object. Performance as shamanic ritual – and it’s some of the most important art of the twentieth century.


The first room here is full of felt clipped to the walls, copper boxes and piles of relay equipment. In

one piece, rolls of felt nestle in smeared globs of fat. A hammer on the wall promises to rebuild something, a sled on the floor promises to whisk your broken body to safety.

Upstairs, the floor is littered with little coiled clay turds with tools stuck in them – like the charred faecal remains of some group of workers – cracked machinery and powerless electricity rods. It leaves you certain that once this was alive, but is now anything but. You’ve probably seen a bronze version of this landmark installation in the Tate. They are sad, forlorn, abandoned things.

In a side room, you find a bunch of early works – fragile little female figures and crucifixes, all on the edge of crumbling like disintegrating prayers.

Social cohésion.

These are all political statements too – works that scream for healing and social cohesion, not the destructive, nihilistic drive of capital. That they’re on show, and many for sale, in a huge international commercial gallery is pretty at odds with Beuys’s whole vibe.

But look past that and in this art of upheaval and pain, you might just find some balm for the soul, and we could all use a bit of that.

“She logs on every day, and out of habit types in product names one after another as if panning for gold; she always finds a reason to add them to the shopping cart. One item leads to another, and the sea of merchandise only expands her bottomless appetite.”

This passage sums up a widespread 21st-century experience: the feeling of near-mindlessness or automation that accompanies online shopping. When we shop on the internet, we often become untethered from ourselves, and we feel, and then try to satisfy, needs we didn’t even know we had.

The words come from a short story contributed by artist Cao Fei to the catalogue for One Hand Clapping, an Exhibition Gallery Opening at the Guggenheim May 4. Cao Fei’s new video work—a commission for the Guggenheim’s Robert H.N. Ho Family Foundation Chinese Art Initiative—is set in the place that makes online shopping possible: a package distribution center.



FEBRUARY 2 – MAY 13, 2018 –  Guggenheim Bilbao

An unclassifiable figure of the arts and literature of the 20th century, Henri Michaux (b. 1899, Namur, Belgium–d. 1984, Paris) greatly influenced the artists and writers of his time over the course of his long life. Both a “poets’ poet” and a “painters’ painter.” Lionized by figures in both fields like André Gide and Francis Bacon. Michaux feverishly produced thousands of works on paper whose full extent is only now becoming apparent.

Archives in Paris.

This Exhibition Gallery, organized in collaboration with the Michaux Archives in Paris, covers fifty years of Michaux’s creative activity. Focusing on his most important periods and series. Bringing together some 230 of the artist’s visual works. Documents, and personal objects, Henri Michaux: The Other Side is organized around three principal themes. Offering a panoramic view of each: the human figure, the alphabet, and the altered psyche.

The show emphasizes the formal and material parallels and convergences between these three themes, and reveals central aspects of the artist’s modus operandi. Underscoring his constant interest in science, musicology, and ethnography. Some of Michaux’s fundamental series. Like the fonds noirs (black backgrounds). The frottages (rubbings), the mouvements (movements), and the dessins mescaliniens (mescaline drawings). Are amply represented in this show, which includes works never exhibited before as well as pieces from major national and international collections.

Swimming Pools

Dirección: Sleepwalk Collective

Teatro de La Abadia – Dec 9 to Dec 13, 2020 Madrid (Spain)


Swimming Pools es el proyecto de nueva creación de la compañía hispano-británica contemporánea Sleepwalk Collective.

A través de una serie de cuencas imaginarias. Dispuestos como los niveles ascendentes de un videojuego retro. Se desborda una secuencia de monólogos íntimos, todos equilibrados en el delgado borde que separa la revelación del delirio. Mientras nuestros protagonistas susurran y realizan sus confesiones a través de voces. Los cuerpos de las cuatro mujeres que habitan el escenario. La propia piscina se vuelve a concebir como una especie de utopía artificial. Un paraíso en miniatura, un lugar de milagros. Belleza extática y de otro mundo.

Lucha sin miedo contra los peculiares demonios de principios del siglo XXI. Capitalismo despiadado. Masculinidad tóxica. Aburrimiento cibernético y fatiga emocional. Swimming Pools es una nueva pieza psicodélica sobre el deseo y la melancolía. Parece que podríamos vivir juntos bajo una mirada cegadora. desde el futuro.

Theater : Les rendez-vous d’ailleurs – Oct 21/22, 2020 Paris (France)


A Saturday evening in December. In a difficult area of a large city north of Paris. Marlène, a young guitarist, finds herself stuck in the elevator of one of the two towers that make up the City of the Grandes Croix.

Time passes and the emergency breakdown system seems to be totally out of order. Fortunately, during his tour, Alexandre, delegated security agent of the city, hears noise in the elevator.

Used to this situation, he applies his usual “Pro-to-school” while waiting for help: dialogue, sharing, comfort and, even, impromptu dinner! But, that night, things seem to take a whole different turn.

Perhaps the improbable prisoner of the elevator is not there by chance …

But all the muscles outside the handsome Bob. To pass the time, Cat and Fan invent stories. Imitate characters. Will be happy. Love each other.

Double Happiness

Directed by Ella Raidel


In the Chinese region. Double Happiness is understood as that happiness. That automatically doubles when two people decide. To live together forever. Ella Raidel chose this beautiful optimistic image. As the title of her first long documentary. But perhaps we should not even talk about documentary. Certainly not the commercialized documentary on globalization. Because it is rather a film very intelligent. Sharp and especially empathy and flair cinematographic.

Dreams that money can buy (1947)

Directed by Hans Richter (German)


Surrealist painter and Dada film-theorist Hans Richter wrote, produced. And directed the experimental exercise Dreams That Money Can Buy. One of the most significant contributions to the 20th-century “avant garde” movement. The project began in 1944. While Richter was director of the Institute of Film Techniques. At City College in New York. Combining short scenarios written by such world-renowned artists as Max Ernst. Marcel Duchamps. Man Ray. Alexander Calder and Fernand Leger. Richter came up with a full-color. Feature-length study in dreamlike “wish fulfillment”. The film’s only nod to continuity is the presence of a self-styled heavenly psychiatrist.


Whose patients purportedly visualize the images which play across the screen. Described by one observer as “surreal yet somewhat Jungian”. Dreams That Money Can Buy cost $25,000. And was three years in the making (Richter liked to take his time. His later Dadascope took five years). Its New York premiere was greeted with a mixture. Of bravos and bewilderment. Especially when the projectionist elected to show. The film on the wall and ceiling rather than the screen. One assumes that the projectionist was less capricious. When Dreams That Money Can Buy won a special prize at the 1947 Venice Film Festival.

Vicious Cycle

Directed by Michael Marczewski (England)


Michael Marczewski is a Motion Designer and Director working at ManvsMachine. A Cannes Gold Lion award winning design. And motion studio based in London. However Michael’s new film, Vicious Cycle, is a passion project. That features cute robots driven by exponentially malfunctioning mechanisms. Which comedically destroy the lovable bots. I sat down with Michael to pick his brains about how he conjured. A particular aesthetic style to lull the audience into a false sense of automated security.

 Terrence Malick’s New project has Music by Jonny Greenwood (USA)


Cinephiles will probably want to sit down for this news. Terrence Malick and Jonny Greenwood are teaming up. The director is executive producing the virtual reality project “Evolver”. Which is set to feature original music from Greenwood. The project was originally announced to be included at the upcoming VR Days Europe. In collaboration with the Rotterdam International Film Festival. But it has since been confirmed not to be heading there next year.

“Evolver” allows users to experience the lifespan of the human condition. From birth to death. The project is produced by House of Secrets. An animation and VR studio located in the Netherlands. And features new music not only from Greenwood but also from Wu-Tang Clan and more. Greenwood earned an Oscar nomination earlier this year for his work on Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread”. And handled score duties on Lynne Ramsay’s “You Were Never Really Here.”

His taste for the experimental. Terrence Malick proves it already through an atypical narration filmography. With The Tree of Life. Wonderfully, Knight of Cups or Song to Song. By 2018, the Texas director had already tried the immersive experience with the short film Together. A dive of more than six minutes in a choreographic ballet. Where dance merged with technology.

The Divine Order

Directed by Petra Biondina Volpe ( Swiss)


It is perhaps no accident that the heroine. Of this story of women’s liberation in early 1970’s Switzerland is named Nora.

The Nora of this film, written and directed by Petra Volpe. Doesn’t seem likely to leave forever. Despite the elevation of consciousness that takes place throughout this movie. Her bond to her husband Hans and her two kids is strong. The most pleasurable part of watching this Nora’s story is seeing. How the males in her life have to make room for her, and do some learning themselves.

Boom For Real – The new Basquiat documentary, Dec 2018.

Directed by Sara Driver (US)


Following the documentary Jean-Michel Basquiat. The Radiant Child by the artist’s personal friend, Tamra Davis. One could mistakenly think they knew everything there was to know about Basquiat. The film unveiled intimate confessions. Went through the daily life of Basquiat as an underground artist. And got closer than ever to dispelling the mythical aura surrounding the painter. Divulging his joys, doubts and dreams. However. This winter, Sara Driver is taking another approach to the artist’s life. Boom For Real:.The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiatrecounts the painter’s youth.

Born in Brooklyn on December 22, 1960. Jean-Michel Basquiat was a precocious child. He knew how to read and write by four. And he had already cultivated an interest in art thanks to regular visits to MoMA with his mother. It was his mother, too, who gifted him the book that changed everything. Henry Gray’s Anatomy of the Human Body, after a terrible accident ended in a trip to the hospital at seven. The scientific gaze helped him cultivate his signature artistic style later on. From his troubled childhood. Between delinquency and life on the street. The documentary showcases the birth of a free. Revolutionary artist, who reigned over the underground art scene. In an understated and unspoken way, all the time remaining as potent. And powerful as his brush would allow him to.

Rachel Maclean

Zabludowicz Collection – Sept 20 / Dec 16, 2018 London (England)


Three films by Scottish artist Rachel Maclean. The first is a brand new VR work that takes the viewer inside a dystopian version of Britain.

Created to mark 100 years of women having the vote in UK. And inspired by Mary Richardson’s famous slashing of Velazquez’s nude painting ‘The Rokeby Venus’.

Searching (2018)

Directed by Aneesh Chaganty


After David Kim (John Cho)’s 16-year-old daughter goes missing. A local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead. David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet. Where all secrets are kept today. His daughter’s laptop. In a hyper-modern thriller. Told via the technology devices we use every day to communicate. David must trace his daughter’s digital footprints before she disappears forever.



Sicilian Ghost Story (2018)

Directed by Fabio Grassadonia, Antonio Piazza (Italian)


Set in a small Sicilian town that’s cradled in a picturesque. Rocky valley and fringed by a shadowy forest, there is a sense that Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza’s film takes place on the very fringe of the ‘real’ world. Where there is still some fairytale magic. Both beautiful and deadly. It’s a feeling encouraged by the directors’ languorous. Almost bleary visual style. Their deft use of natural imagery. And a story viewed through the prism of a fiercely imaginative teenage girl. Who, rather noticeably, likes to wear red.




BlacKkKlansman (2018)

Directed by Spike Lee


If you’ve been pining for the return of the fiery. Political Spike Lee of Do the Right Thingand Malcolm X, good news. BlacKkKlansman is the director working at his electrifying best. Maybe the optimism of the Obama era robbed him of some of that righteous fury (which would be one explanation for his limp Oldboy remake). Or maybe middle age mellowed him; either way. Trump’s America—Charlottesville. Black Lives Matter and everything else—has brought the old mojo flooding back. Veering from a blaxploitation spoof to an undercover thriller. And ending with a no-punches-pulled real-life coda. BlacKkKlansman is riotously fun one minute. Savagely biting the next.




“The Kiss” (1896)

Directed by William Heise

The first kiss seen at the cinema.

At just 18 seconds long. “The Kiss” (sometimes known as “The May Irwin Kiss”) is one of the earliest films to be shown to the public. Directed by William Heise for Thomas Edison. It recreates a kiss from a popular musical of the time, The Widow Jones.

The sex scene
To be honest. It’s barely a kiss; there’s definitely no tongues or bodily fluids exchanged as actor John Rice tweezes his moustache in preparation before he goes in for what is more of a peck.

Why is it so groundbreaking?
Officially the first ever film to feature two people kissing. It caused an uproar, with one commentator writing that it was “beastly enough in life size on the stage. But magnified to gargantuan proportions and repeated three times over, it is absolutely disgusting.”




More (Full version)

Directed by  Barbet Schroeder 1969


Stefan (Klaus Grünberg) is a German student from Lübeck, who has finished his mathematics studies and decides to have an adventure to discard his personal commitments. After hitch-hiking to Paris, he makes friends with Charlie (Michel Chanderli) while playing cards in a Latin Quarter, and they decide to commit a burglary to get some money. At a swinging Left Bank party, Stefan meets a free-spirited-beautiful but elusive American girl called Estelle (Mimsy Farmer) and follows her to Ibiza.

He discovers Estelle is involved with former Nazi German man called Dr. Wolf (Heinz Engelmann). Borrowing a villa from a hippie, Stefan saves Estelle from Dr. Wolf only to find she does not really want to be saved, and she introduces him to heroin (referred to by the old street name, “horse”), which she has stolen from Dr. Wolf. Stefan is initially against Estelle using heroin, but having used it previously, she persuades him to try it. Soon Stefan and Estelle are both heavily addicted to heroin. They try to break the addiction using LSD and initially manage to stay clean.

However, after a while, they are both using heroin again. Unable to break free of the addiction, it quickly spirals out of control, leading to a tragic end for Stefan.

J’aime (I love)

Experimental Film – Directed by Alain Lame (French)


The painter in the cinema is a fictional character emblematic of the figure of the artist. The creative genius renews the heroic figure of the adventurer. Solitary cowboy in a cultivated and urban universe (Paris or New York). It plays on the contradiction between individual freedom and the forms of social organization (family, recognition, exhibition, etc.).

Alain Lame shows us in his experimental film the art market. It refers to all transactions on works of art and works of art. Also, we will see the different actors of the art trade that are the artists. Merchants and antique dealers. Gallery or brokers. Collectors and amateurs.

Finally, we watch an organized bulimia !



Human Flow

Directed  by Ai WeiWei – Pekin (China)


Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change and war in the greatest human displacement since World War II. Human Flow, an epic film journey led by the internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact.

Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey. Human Flow is a witness to its subjects and their desperate search for safety, shelter and justice: from teeming refugee camps to perilous ocean crossings to barbed-wire borders; from dislocation and disillusionment to courage, endurance and adaptation; from the haunting lure of lives left behind to the unknown potential of the future.


Human Flow comes at a crucial time when tolerance, compassion and trust are needed more than ever. This visceral work of cinema is a testament to the unassailable human spirit and poses one of the questions that will define this century: Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?

Amazon Studios and Participant Media present, in association with AC Films, Human Flow, a film directed by Ai Weiwei. Human Flow is produced by Ai Weiwei, Chin-Chin Yap and Heino Deckert and executive produced by Andrew Cohen of AC Films with Jeff Skoll and Diane Weyermann of Participant Media.

Mary Page Marlowe

By Tracy Letts. Directed by Lila Neugebauer.

2NSTAGE Theater –  18/31 July, New-York (Us)


Tracy Letts’s fascinating Mary Page Marlowe presents a portrait of its title character in the form of a jigsaw puzzle. The play’s 11 scenes, each about eight minutes long, span nearly 70 years in the life of a Midwestern baby boomer, but they are presented out of chronological order; each new piece connects to others and fills in gaps until a larger picture emerges. But the play resists its own tendency toward neatness through a central conceit: Mary Page, at various ages, is embodied by six different actors (and one prop baby), a powerfully literal rebuke to the idea of a stable self. “I’m not the person I am,” Mary Page tells a psychotherapist—and she’s certainly, obviously, not who she used to be.

Orphan Black’s

Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany plays Mary Page in her twenties and thirties; we hear her dissect her joyless extramarital affairs in therapy and then watch her, later/earlier, engage in a hotel-room tryst. Susan Pourfar takes the reins for Mary Page’s forties, when she labors to raise kids, and Kellie Overbey plays her at 50, when she crashes into reality; Blair Brown takes over for the final decade of Mary Page’s life, when she has softened a bit with age and resignation. All four are excellent, as is most of the rest of the cast—18 actors in all, many appearing in only a single scene apiece.

While the play’s wide scope keeps the audience at a bird’s-eye remove, its components are vivid close-up snapshots. Director Lila Neugebauer keeps Mary Page in hard, revealing focus even as the character sometimes smudges herself in denial or passivity. (Substance abuse is a recurring issue: a need to be out of control.) Mary Page Marlowe combines moments of crisis into a longer view of time. It approaches life—this one life—with something that feels like wisdom.

Directed by Drake Doremus – July 2018 (US)


In a time of haute technology and post-Black Mirror consciousness, what better time than now for a movie like Zoe to be made? Léa Seydoux and Ewan McGregor star in this romantic sci-fi where synthetic humans are normal in society and compatibility robots can discern whether two people are a perfect match. Although many movies have exhausted the tropes of the role of technology in relationships, Zoe seems to delve further into the idea, specifically with artificial intelligence’s potential to reduce loneliness.




Call me by your name

Directed by Luca Guadagnino, Italy


‘Call Me by Your Name’, Winner of the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay, has delighted audiences at such festivals as Toronto, Sundance and the Berlinale. Elio spends every summer with his parents at their villa in the northern Italian countryside, where he enjoys the sun, reading, peace and quiet and the company of his friends. The summer that Elio turns 17, he meets Oliver, a handsome doctoral student working as an intern for his father.




Mamma Mia

Directed by Ol Parker – July 2018 (US)


What’s better than a Mamma Mia sequel? A Mamma Mia sequel featuring Cher, of course. Although the 72-year-old is somehow playing the mother of the 69-year-old Meryl Streep, it’s her first on-screen role in eight years, and what a way to return. Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! finds Sophie 10 years later, now pregnant and wondering how her mother felt when she was in the same position. Cue the flashback – we see how a young Donna got herself into a sticky situation with Bill, Sam and Harry. With ABBA songs old and new, a sparkling cast list and an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza planned if the trailer is anything to go by, it looks like it’ll be the perfect summer movie to go and see with friends.





Max Pugh and Marc J. Francis (French/Britich)


Heartfelt, if not entirely satisfying, Walk With Meprovides an up-close glimpse of the life of devotion, focusing on the monks and nuns who live at a rural monastery led by Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh.

Credited with introducing the practice of mindfulness to the West, the 90-year-old has been limited in his activities as the result of a recent stroke, but for a long time he appeared regularly on the lecture circuit, and many Americans (including this one) have heard him speak and been guided through meditations by him. To convey the powerful calm of his presence would be a tall order for any film. The documentary by Max Pugh and Marc J. Francis certainly has its potent moments. But its mix of the contemplative and the observational finally proves more illustrative than immersive.

Mitchell-Innes & Nash Gallery – JULY 9 – AUGUST 22, 2018

Mitchell-Innes & Nash is pleased to present 35 days of film, a group video screening of films dating from 1965 to 2018 presented in linear format on a single screen at the gallery’s Chelsea location this summer from July 9th to August 22nd.

The exhibition features a selection of films by a dozen artists whose respective work, while disparate in tone and subject matter, all highlight the aesthetic and political significance of film as a means of communication. Against the backdrop of today’s cultural environment where social media plays a dominant role in both disseminating and arbitrating public discourse on art and politics, these films call for a re-examination of the screen as the stage upon which reality can be reflected and changed.

The exhibition includes films by Monica Bonvicini, GCC, General Idea, Mary Kelly, Christopher Miner, Pat O’Neill, Hardeep Pandhal, Pope.L, Martha Rosler and Jacolby Satterwhite.

Woman Walks Ahead

Director by  Susanna White 2018 (USA)


Based on true events, WOMAN WALKS AHEAD tells the story of Catherine Weldon (Jessica Chastain). A widowed artist from New York who, in the 1880s, traveled alone to North Dakota to paint a portrait of Chief Sitting Bull (Michael Greyeyes). Her arrival at Standing Rock is welcomed with open hostility by a US Army officer (Sam Rockwell). Who has stationed troops around the Lakota reservation to undermine Native American claims to the land. As Catherine and Sitting Bull grow closer, and as their friendship-and his life-are threatened by imperious government forces. Catherine must contend with the violence that underlies her position.




Review: In ‘Araby,’ the Story of a Wandering Laborer

 Directed by João Dumans, Affonso Uchoa 2017 Brazil


Araby begins by observing the day-to-day of Andre, a teenager who lives in an industrial area in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. After a local factory worker, Cristiano, has an accident on the job, he leaves behind a handwritten journal, which the boy proceeds to read with relish. The film shifts into road-movie mode to recount the story of Cristiano, an ex-con and eternal optimist who journeys across Brazil in search of work, enduring no shortage of economic hardship but gaining an equal amount of self-knowledge. Invigorating and ever surprising, Araby is a humanist work of remarkable poise and maturity.




Apocalyptic, unfathomable essay film from the legendary Jean-Luc Godard. (French)

Jean-Luc Godard presents himself as a one-man YouTube in The Image Book (Le Livre d’Image, also known as The Picture Book). The old dog of the New Wave is as provocative, and impenetrable, as ever in a documentary essay / installation piece shaped around a blizzard of images culled from artworks, news footage and a vast sampling of classic films. From Hitchcock’s Vertigo to Pasolini’s Salò via Joan Crawford in Johnny Guitar.

The film is broken into chapters, with recurring images of hands and trains. There are voices on the soundtrack, including Godard’s. Writing on the screen and words that are mostly translated into English, but sometimes not. Watching the film is like trying to tune a radio. That stubbornly refuses to stay on the same wavelength.

Buster Keaton

Godard, now 87, certainly seems to be in apocalyptic mood as he focuses heavily on images of violence and suffering. Humans have an innate capacity for cruelty and self-destruction. Consuming the finite resources of a planet that we seem to conveniently forget that we share with other species. The recurring scenes of trains. Including, of course, Buster Keaton in The General – must, one assumes. Speak to the Holocaust, when railway tracks marked the road to hell.

Later in the film, Godard turns his attention to the Middle East in a chapter headed ‘Joyful Arabia’. The title of a work by Alexandre Dumas. He chastises the West for having no real interest in the people or the culture. The promise of prosperity from a foreign land lies at the heart of all colonialism.

There are themes and concerns that can be teased out from this largely unfathomable film. But it is always challenging. Maybe it is something that needs to be experienced and absorbed. Rather than dissected and understood. If it is to be Godard’s last feature then there seems something appropriate in his conclusion that ‘there needs to be a revolution.’



‘Three Faces’ Film Review: Once Again, Jafar Panahi Is Modest But Profound

Cannes 2018: The Iranian director is officially forbidden from making films for 20 years, but “Three Faces”. Is the latest exceptional work he’s made in the face of that ban.


For the past few years, Iranian director Jafar Panahi has been sending a series of quietly confounding films to festivals that he’s not allowed to attend. “Three Faces,” which premiered this weekend at the Cannes Film Festival. Is the latest of these little examples of his cinematic sleight-of-hand, and another Panahi gem that has more on its mind than it lets on.

“Three Faces” is typical of the canny director’s output in the way it’s modest but profound. Leisurely but urgent, a portrait of a country disguised as a meandering road movie.

But it’s not like he’s using misdirection or only pretending to be modest and leisurely. Panahi’s films are all those things at once. And this one is particularly timely at this year’s Cannes. In the way he manages, without openly criticizing his home country. To sketch a portrait of how the refusal to give women much agency in their lives is ingrained in the society.

Wim Wenders: ‘Pope speaks directly to viewer in new film’
Wim Wenders, writer and director of the new film “Pope Francis – A Man of His Word”, in an exclusive interview with Vatican News, says the movie allows the Holy Father “to speak directly about all his concerns and all the issues that matter to him.”
As the Holy Father celebrates 5 years of his Papacy, we’re going to preview the trailer of your new film: “Pope Francis – A Man of His Word”. What does this film mean to you? How did the film come to be, and what do you expect?

WW: Not in my wildest dreams would I have expected to make a film about Pope Francis. When I got the letter with an invitation to come to the Vatican and discuss with Don Dario Viganó the possibility of a film about the Pope. I first took a deep breath, and then I walked around the block. It seemed that such a project would represent a huge responsibility, at least it would be a whole different kind of task than any film I had made before. But of course I would go and find out what Don Dario had in mind.

Pope Francis – A Man of His Word

It turned out that he offered me Carte Blanche, let me write a concept and define myself the film I could imagine. And the Vatican would not interfere, and would open its archive for us. I said yes. Of course.

It needed a while for my concept to take shape, for the financing to fall into place and for the first shoot with Pope Francis to be organized. From that first interview to the finished film it took almost 2 years, 3 more long interview sessions and a shoot in Assisi. The home town of Saint Francis. And months and months in the editing room, until the film had taken its final shape. And it fulfilled the high hopes I had for it: that it would allow Pope Francis to speak directly to every viewer and listener. Almost face to face, about all his concerns and all the issues that matter to him. 

The Pope was involved in the shooting… Did anything happen on the film set that has particularly impressed you?

WW: Oh yes! I was very impressed how open Pope Francis was to each question, and how directly and spontaneously he answered. And after each of our four long sessions. He took time to shake everybody’s hands, and did not make any difference between producer or director or electrician or assistant.


You once said the Pope “is a true example of a man who lives what he preaches”. What well-wishes do you have for him today?

WW: I had the highest regard for Pope Francis before. I ever met him, just from seeing him on television and from reading his sermons. Or his encyclicals. But meeting him eye to eye. Then also seeing and hearing him every day. In the editing room. Not only in our own interviews. But also his many talks all over the world, to refugees. Prisoners. Scientists, children, rich or poor or regular people. Made me realize how courageous he was. How fearless. And finally, that would be my wish: that he never loses that relentless courage.

Whenever he left our set, the last thing he said was. “Pray for me!”. And that wasn’t just his way of saying good-bye. He meant it. And I’ve heard him ask the same from people all over the world.  From all these people (including my little film crew). Finally, for whom he represents a man whose word we can trust in. That has become such a rare and precious thing today. A man who is not acting for himself, but for the common good.




TATE MODERN : DATE & TIME 19 June 2018 at 19.00–21.30  Parviz Kimiavi, Mogholha, 1973 | Photo &copy; Parviz Kimiavi

An outstanding ‘collage’ of past. Present and future Kimiavi’s iconoclastic masterpiece. The Mongols is a reflection on modernity and cultural imperialism in 1970s Iran. The self-reflective film creates a critical reflection on the expanding presence of TV screens and antennas in Iran’s. Poor villages with a re-enactment of the Mongols 13th century invasion. Its innovation and self-reflection led the French critic Henri Chapier to label Kimiavi ‘Le Godard Iranian.’

You are inches from Tracey Emin’s face. You’re right there on the pillow next to her. Watching her desperately wait for sleep to finally come. Emin suffers from insomnia. And takes selfies as she helplessly wrestles with it. She’s printed them two metres high. And pasted them across the walls here. On the one hand, they’re terrifying. Ridiculous, even a little stupid. But on the other, they’re… really good. They tower over you. Suffocating you in their bleary, angry, frustrated misery. It feels like she’s collapsing with exhaustion around you. It just hits you so hard.

Kris Lemsalu

Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art – Until Fev 03, 2019 London (England)


Kris Lemsalu has converted this gallery into a little shop of psychedelic horrors. It’s filled with bodies caught in the middle of mutating. Metamorphosing and transmogrifiying into bizarre. Twisted new shapes.

The Estonian artist combines glistening ceramics. And intricate fabrics into shocking tableaux. The first installation here features. A wall of arms and hands, surrounded by climbing grips. It’s like a bouldering centre run by an eccentric artist. The work implies that a degree of physical effort. The climbing – can lead to a new version of you.

Spencer Tunick (performance)

Neimeyer Center –  Until Jan 07, 2019 Avilés (Spain)


Nudes It is the first retrospective of American photographer Spencer Tunick in Spain of. Tunick has been documenting the nude in public. With photography and video, since 1992. Since 1994 he has organized more than 95 temporary installations related to a specific place. And covering dozens, hundreds or thousands of volunteers. Your photographs are records of these events. Individuals en masse. Without clothing, grouped, are transformed into a new form. The bodies extend into and over the landscape as a substance. Tunick poses scenes in which the battle of nature against culture. Develops with several backdrops. From a civic center to a sandstorm in the desert. Man and woman return to a state of pre-industrial existence.

These group masses, which do not underline sexuality. Become abstractions that challenge or reconfigure the points of view of nudity and privacy. His work also refers to the complex issue of presenting art. In permanent or temporary public spaces.

You can discuss with your neighbour the immorality of the works. The nakedness of a body. The numbing simplicity of a piece or the gratuity of an element. You can recognize the exhibited artists. Talk about the famous pieces and the new ones. You can mention anything you want on the social network. You can photograph, record, draw on paper a sketch of the works on display.

POSTPARTUM is an exhibition of 7 new paintings by Aaron Garber-Maikovska. Despite their explosive color. The genesis of these paintings was a gradual process for Garber-Maikovska. And something of a radical departure for how the artist approaches the medium.

Begun in 2017, they were developed in stages. As the artist and his partner were expecting their second child. And completed shortly before the artist’s recent exhibition at High Art in Paris. This past September. As happened, the baby arrived the same week. Of the opening and Garber-Maikovska. flew home to assist his wife during the child’s delivery. Missing the opening reception in the process.

Pondick’s new works feature semi-transparent clear blocks encasing. Her head rendered in brilliant contrasting color. The heads appear in various orientations. Sometimes even floating partway out of their evanescent domain.

The blocks have subtle contours. And worked edges, paying fealty to the sculptor’s hand. They are made from resin, acrylic and an epoxy modeling compound. New materials for Pondick. Who experimented endlessly to achieve a harmony of form, color. And emotional depth. One indelible quality of the new work is the use of sonorous color. Each work features a dominant hue and no more than four different colors. For which the work is titled. These are intimate and yet powerful works that shift with our positioning.

Jeanne Tripier

La casa incendida – Until Jan05, 2019 Madrid (Spain)


Jeanne Tripier (Paris, 1869 – Neuilly-sur-Marne, 1944). Remains relatively unknown in Spain, But her artwork is undeniably fascinating. Full of lyricism, her work was created during the decade. She spent in an asylum in Neuilly-sur-Marne. Where she died. The artist’s self-taught nature.

The link between her visual works and embroideries. And her mental illness, her psychopathic-megalomaniacal outbursts. And the connection with her matter-rich manifestations. Or reincarnation as other individuals – such as Joan of Arc – in her personal battle. As an interplanetary vigilante all contrive to make her a truly fascinating character.

Anna Condo – Reflections

Galerie Joseph – Until Nov 04, 2018, Paris (France)


Anna is a French director and photographer, born in Armenia, living in New York. She began an acting career, then in 1988 turned to photography. In 1989. Anna moved to the United States and worked on many projects.
She started writing and making movies. During this period, Anna continued to take photographs and collaborated with many artists. In 1998, she published her first book “AH Allen,” a powerful tribute to her friend the poet Allen Ginsberg. Since 2013, Anna has been focusing on flower photography. Is it a snub to this society that is constantly reinventing the rules? Or simply the observation that the real is elsewhere? Some view the flower as naive. Anna’s works prove the opposite.

These images that can be compared to portraits, impose respect. Indeed here the flower is no longer fragile. She is strong, sometimes arrogant. She symbolizes this nature that only bends to the elements. A real break in the world in which we live in. The flower is a lady first and foremost. A feminist before its time. A broth of culture, stories, and emotions. P. Achdjian (“The storm revives flowers” C.Baudelaire).

Despite very real challenges like Haiti’s huge disparity between rich and poor. The contributors here have developed flourishing artistic practices that include sequined Vodou flags. Stone and wood carvings, and found object assemblages. That reflect the country’s dynamically mixed cultural heritage.

Like that piece, the works here offer hallucinogenic meditations on America. At the zenith of its mid-century prosperity. Both critical and celebratory. These compositions reflect on a culture defined. By a voracious appetite for mass consumption stimulated by advertising image.

Transportation networks. Nation states. Jails and schools”. The last seems especially relevant. Given that Lipps’s style resembles a grade-schooler’s. A closer look, however. Reveals numerous stylistic name-checks. Including nods to James Ensor. George Grosz. Sigmar Polke and Martin Kippenberg.

Judith Eisler

Casey Kaplan gallery – Until Oct 20, 2018 New York (US)


Eisler employs a soft-focus style of photorealism that recalls the work of Gerhard Richter. Several paintings of candles here even seem to pay homage to the German artist’s treatment of the same subject. But as the show title explains. Eisler canvases play “riffs” on filmmaker Derek Jarman’s 1986 biopic of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, the obstreperous 16th-century Mannerist who. When he wasn’t brawling, was busy re-inventing painting. Eisler bases her canvases on stills from the movie. Isolating particular details in close ups that square a peculiar circle. In which an artist makes paintings about a film about an artist who paints.

Suellen Rocca is one of the original members of the Hairy Who. A group of six visionary artists who first exhibited together in Chicago in 1966. Early in her career Rocca developed a unique vocabulary of symbols. Wedding rings, purses, and palm trees — inspired by advertising imagery. In her paintings and drawings she often arranged these images in repetitive patterns. Creating compositions that have been likened to modern hieroglyphs. When asked about the source of her imagery. Rocca has cited “the cultural icons of beauty. And romance expressed by the media that promised happiness to young women of that generation.” Since 1980 her work has increasingly combined this iconography with allusions to the body. Animals, and plant life.

by the renowned Spanish artist Juan Genovés. The exhibition will begin on September 13th and remain on view through October 9th, 2018.

Genovés creates his distinctive figures from thickly applied acrylic paint that protrudes from the surfaces. The lines that reinforce the picture plane can be read as breaks in the image. Or as topographies encouraging the directional movement of the crowd. The cast shadow is an important element. With each figure being anchored by its unique shadow. In addition, beads and other small objects found by the artist are attached to the figures on the canvas. And contribute to the individuality and character of each.

It’s frequently said that Australians don’t know or care much about their own history. And have little understanding of what occurred during colonisation. But the artists who were creating work on both sides of the black-white divide captured extraordinary landscapes. Scenes of colonial developments and scenes of conflict that offer a colourful glimpse into our frequently dark past. These dual exhibitions show the collision of western and Indigenous art. And trace how an Australian artistic expression came to be.

For their work. What sets DeDecker apart. However, are thickly built up surfaces collaged. With an all-over debris field that comprises slats from discarded venetian blinds. Plastic toys, crushed soda cans and presumably anything. Else he can get his hands on. The images limned over this mess include. Characters who appear to be cavorting with joy. Though you get the nagging sensation that their exuberance may be irrational if not delusional.

Leelee Kimmel

Simon Gallery – Until Aug 30, 2018 London


As part of its Viewing Room programme. Simon Lee Gallery is pleased to present Wormhole a solo exhibition by New York-based artist Leelee Kimmel. Her first in the UK. In her latest work, Kimmel presents a series of large-scale abstract paintings that are confrontational in both colour and dimension, exploring themes of creation and destruction. The immersive element of her work is further developed through sculptural pieces. And a five-minute Virtual Reality work that invites total submergence. Into the deep space of Kimmel’s creative world.

The large-format paintings feature graphic shapes. Clustered in thick multilayered pools of bright acrylic paint. Which weave across fields of solid white or black. The paintings are imbued with a restless energy. And freedom that is intrinsically linked with how the artist creates her works. The resulting compositions deliberately move in and out of representation. Sensuous and strict. Gloss and matte. Tangled and full. The complex patch-work of imagery. Consisting of crosshatch and opposing vector-like lines. And patterns as well as interrupting biomorphic forms. Has an otherworldly quality. Forceful and nervous lines are reminiscent of artists such as Basquiat and Twombly. While the uncanny worlds and dreamlike atmospheres created by the artist emerge into a sort of mutant realism.

It’s been 66 years since Gertrude Abercrombie (1909–1977) last exhibited in NYC. So it’s been awhile since New Yorkers. Have been able to acquaint themselves with the work of this midcentury Surrealist painter. Who was born in Texas.. And spent most of her life living in Chicago’s Hyde Park. Modest in scale. Abercrombie’s compositions. Typically done in oils on masonite. Feature cryptic landscapes and interiors. That serve as backdrops for the artist’s personal iconography of doors. Cats. Owls and ladders. Which she often combines with her own self making mysterious appearances. Fraught with psychological drama.

Marco Tirelli

Axel Vervoordt Gallery – Until Sep 01, 2018 (Hong Kong)


An exhibition by Italian artist Marco Tirelli, featuring medium and small size paintings specifically created for the show.

Tirelli’s artistic philosophy consists in geometrical figures. Rectangular and square structures delicately suspended. In a tension between light and darkness.  His enigmatic forms reflect. A number of Tirelli’s enduring preoccupations with time. Space and what lies beyond.

With their different architectural features and arresting contrasts of lights and shadows. Nuances of modern- sfumato. Tthe works evoke a fluctuation between appearance. And disappearance which epitomize the artist’s vision – a search for the mystery of the visible and its concomitant inner reflection. And his aspiration to elicit active sensorial and mental participation from the viewer. “I’m fascinated by surfaces and what is on the other side of them.“ says the artist. – 30 Queen’s Road Central, Wan Chai, Hong Kong




“The Party”

Anton Kern Gallery – Until Aug 31, 2018


Organized by L.A. curator Ali Subotnick. “The Party” takes its name from 1968 comedy that starred comic genius Peter Sellars. As a bumbling (what other type of Sellars character is there?). Indian actor, wrecking havoc at a lavish Hollywood party in an equally outlandish house. Despite the fact that Sellars played the role in brown face (a definite no-no today). The movie is considered a cult classic, mainly because of its experimental, improvisational style.

*Subotnick asked some of the artists to create works that took cues from the film. Maurizio Cattelan, for example. Also, contributes a live parrot making noises in the gallery. An idea that seems inspired by a moment when Sellars’s character makes an abortive attempt to feed the host’s macaw. Which literally sits in a giant gilded cage. While it’s hard to judge whether. Hence, the show matches the subversive humor of Blake’s mid-century masterpiece. Finally, he 15 artists here (who, beside Cattelan. Also includes Martin Creed and Sean Landers) certainly give it a shot.

There’ll be more than 20 of Van Hout’s works on display, drawn from both private collections and major public institutions.

Conceptual Art And Photography (1960 – 1980)

Gallery Richard Saltoun – until 25 Aug, 2018 London


Forget how many words a picture is worth; what about how many ideas it’s worth? This neat little show is filled with art where ideas are captured in images. The thing you see isn’t necessarily the work, but a representation of the concept… which is the work. You follow? It’s conceptual art through photography, essentially.

It’s slippery and complicated, sure. But take Dennis Oppenheim’s ‘Reading Position for Second Degree Burn’. The top half of the image features the artist lying on a beach, a book splayed open on his chest. The bottom half is him five hours later, burnt to porcine pink perfection, save for a square of pure white skin where the book had been. It’s not really a photo, it’s an idea.

The same goes for lots of the work here. Like Eleanor Antin’s series of images of black boots in different parts of the USA. The galoshes represent displaced people, a powerful political statement. But what makes this piece work isn’t the images, but the way they were distributed – shared as postcards, becoming a piece of mail art in the process. Again, it’s the idea that wins.

There are clever works here by Marcel Broodthaers and Hans-Peter Feldmann as well. But too much here strays from conceptual art and its relationship to photography into documentation of performance art. It may seem like not much of a distinction, but it makes a difference. One captures an idea, a concept, the other is documentation of something that happened once. There’s nothing terribly wrong with that, but it is a lot less interesting.

F22 Foto Space – July 11/28, 2018 – Hong Kong (China)


Acclaimed French photographer Patrick Willocq brings to Hong Kong his stunning photos captured in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Willocq’s works are a result of a unique collaboration with the Walé, Congolese pygmy women who are first-time mothers, and transforms and adapts traditional dances and songs during the mother’s seclusion into photographs. Taken from hand-built stages, Willocq’s images are stunning and visceral, reflecting the experiences of these young mothers as closely as possible and to share with the world this symbolic rite of passage.

Halil Altındere

Space Refugee (2016–18)

The British Interplanetary – 9–15 July 2018 London


Space Refugee is a multi-media installation based on Muhammed Ahmed Faris, the first Syrian cosmonaut to travel to the Mir space station in 1987. The project follows Faris’ journey from popular hero, to supporter of the opposition movement against Assad, to his current life as a refugee in Turkey. Presented in the manner of an old fashioned space museum, this installation combines faux commemorative artefacts and a virtual reality work designed by the artist with elements from the British Interplanetary Society’s own collection.

At the core of the installation is a video in which Faris relates the difficulties of the journey out of Syria, then speaks with fellow refugees about the possibility of returning to their homeland. If that proves impossible, he says, “I hope we can rebuild cities for them in space, where there is freedom and dignity and where there is no tyranny, no injustice.” The video goes on to include interviews with NASA scientists, air and space law specialists, and architects discussing the plausibility of a refugee colony in space.

Halil Altındere (b. 1971, Turkey) has a wide-ranging practice that includes video, sculpture, photography, installation, performance, curating and publishing. He often employs an ironic approach to challenge political, cultural and social systems. In his early works he reversed conceptions of nation-state and authority in Turkey by utilising everyday objects such as identity cards, banknotes, and stamps. His current practice focuses on issues of subcultures, migration, identity, gender and marginalisation.

White rabbit Gallery – Until August 5, 2018 Sydney (Australia)


There are only nine artists in White Rabbit’s The Sleeper Awakes, which takes over four floors of the Chippendale gallery. But there’s certainly no shortage of showstoppers or big ideas on display from these forward-thinking practitioners.

The exhibition itself is a conversation between China’s present and the future that Mao Zedong and his communist revolutionaries dreamed of 70 years ago. Nowhere is this conversation more apparent than in Feng Mengbo’s ‘Long March—Restart’, an old arcade style video game projected onto the gallery’s walls. Visitors are welcome to play what seems to be just a cute game with a Mario-esque figure as the hero. But the game is actually a reimagining of the Long March, the military retreat that Mao used as a tool of propaganda, making a hero out of Yang Zirong, a Red Army soldier. In this version, the soldier hurls Coke cans (could there be a more potent symbol for capitalism?) at his foes.

Painting machine.

One of the strangest works on show is Liu Xiaodong’s ‘Weight of Insomnia’, featuring a painting machine meticulously recreating vision from a live webcam showing footage of Circular Quay and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The robotic brush continues to move throughout night and day creating its own impression of the cityscape.

At the centre of the exhibition is Sun Xun’s ‘The Republic of Jing Bang’, which uses an entire floor of the gallery. He combines painting, woodcuts, traditional Chinese ink and charcoal drawings in this mammoth installation. On the top floor, visitors can also see the Australian premiere of his 3D movie ‘Time Spy’, an animation made with around 10,000 hand-carved wood cuttings.

The other major video work in the exhibition is Xu Bing’s ‘Dragonfly Eyes’, a feature-length film made up from footage from 30,000 webcams all across China. The footage has been cut into a bizarre but totally gripping narrative.

And no White Rabbit exhibition would be complete without an attention-grabbing foyer installation, and Peng Hung-Chih’s ‘The Deluge—Noah’s Ark’ is somewhat of a showstopper. The eight-metre distorted cruiseliner is made up of 6,000 separate 3D-printed pieces.

and Vera Molnár (b.1924 Budapest, Hungary) from three different corners of the globe with early computer art from 1969 – 1977. Although each has an original style and distinctive approach. Influenced by aspects of Constructivism, Op Art, Systems Art and Conceptualism and Concrete art. With these works can be seen a similar modernist aesthetic and common interest in exploiting the unique capabilities inherent in the computer. Artists have always been early adopters of new technology. But the complexity and rarity of computers. Meant that any art form based around them was bound to be a particularly specialised branch of modernism.

Skarstedt Gallery – June 26 /August 3, 2018 New York (Us)


Richard Prince was born in Panama in 1949. First of al he began consolidating. His style during the early 1970s. When he began working with photos and found advertising images. He became known for these works. In which re-photographed and cropped advertisements are displayed. On their own or in groups to emphasize the subtle. Yet powerful impact of mass media images in shaping contemporary consumer culture. As a result, Prince continued to use appropriated imagery, particularly humorous cartoons. Also, and mismatched jokes, that he copied onto large.

These works evolved to eventually include mostly text based elements manipulated in a painterly manner. Also, within them, medium and text overlap in playful ways. Demonstrating the subjective nature of meaning and reflecting Prince’s preoccupation. With notions of contemporary culture. Also, Prince is also well known for his sculptural work as well as his famous Nurse Paintings. Which take figures from medical romance novels and transform them into striking. Mysterious and sometimes gruesome characters. Finally, Recent works are also painterly in nature and include abstract figuration elements. Highly influenced by the works of Willem de Kooning.

Sharon Lockhart: Noa Eshkol’s Movement Notation
Guggenheim Bilbao – Nov 4 to Feb 27, 2022 Bilbao (Spain)


The video installations and photographic works of Sharon Lockhart (b.1964, Norwood, USA) pay particular attention to human action. To its modes of representation, whether social or in solitude. From artistic work to choreography, she highlights the complexity and poetic depth of a simple movement. Among Lockhart’s many investigations on this subject, reflection on the researcher’s work. Israeli theorist and choreographer Noa Eshkol (b.1895; d.1969) occupies an exceptional place in the artist’s last decade of production.

Four Exercises in Eshkol-Wachman Movement Notation.

Eshkol is known for her pioneering efforts to transcribe human movements. In a writing system capable of recording almost all the modalities of movement of the body. In the installation Four Exercises in Eshkol-Wachman Movement Notation (2011). One of Eshkol’s most accomplished students leads a series of exercises in this system based on strict compositional patterns. It raises the possibility of articulating messages through body language as if the space were a textual medium. The performer’s concentration and awareness of each movement give the performance equal serenity and power. The silence of the film further intensifies the purity of the gestures. The scores adopt three-dimensional geometric shapes in Lockhart’s photographs. This installation is the result of a special collaboration with the Thyssen Bornemisza Art 21 (TBA21) and The Wellbeing Project.

Blanca Li Company

Theater National of Dance Chaillot – Nov 08 to 15, 2018


Beware, this is a committed show. In an intricate fusion between visual perfection. Ecological urgency and hypersensitive feelings. The choreographer Blanca Li shakes our consciousness. Whilst delighting the senses.

Air, water, earth, fire. To talk about the threats weighing on our planets. Blanca Li summons the four elements. On an immaculate stage. She implements with an enchanting and unique scenography. The complex and ambiguous relationship that we have with our environment. A veil of aerial tulle imagined by Pierre Attrait is in turn a cloud. The ground, the sky, or wind. And becomes the base of suggestive videos. In the midst of the recreated nature.

15 dancers accustomed to all styles embody our humanity. Their organic dance elates beauty. But also the fragility of an ecosystem in danger of which we are just one of the components. The lyric or percussive music composed by Tao Gutierrez intensely underlines. The multiple forms of our relationship to the world. Produced by Chaillot last season. This creation acts as an alarm for our future and is more than ever of concern today.

Judson Dance Theater Performance : “The Work Is Never Done”

MOMA – Until Feb 03, 2019 New-Yok (USA)


For a brief period in the early 1960s. A group of choreographers. Visual artists. Composers, and filmmakers gathered in Judson Memorial Church. A socially engaged Protestant congregation in New York’s Greenwich Village. For a series of workshops that ultimately redefined what counted as dance. The performances that evolved from these workshops. Incorporated everyday movements—gestures drawn from the street or the home. Their structures were based on games. Simple tasks, and social dances. Spontaneity and unconventional methods of composition were emphasized. The Judson artists investigated the very fundamentals of choreography. Stripping dance of its theatrical conventions. And the result, according to Village Voice critic Jill Johnston was the most exciting new dance in a generation.

Saburo Teshigawara / Rihoko Sato

National Theater of Dance – Sept 27 / Oct 5, 2018 Paris (France)


As one of the most influential Japanese creators of his time. Saburo Teshigawara renews on stage with his accomplice and dancer Rihoko Sato for The Idiot. Not really an adaptation, more a reinterpretation..

“I knew it would be impossible to create a choreography taken from such a novel”. Saburo Teshigawara said about Dostoievski’s The Idiot. “But this impossibility has been key to approach and create something completely new. A dance that only exists in the present”. A duo transforming each voice, each cry or murmur into movement. It is not however question of a narrative dance. But more the idea of recreating a body language. The gestural grammar developed and magnified by Rihoko Sato and Saburo Teshigawara are rich in tempo. vVrtuoso and slow motion. The result is a labyrinth of sensations in which one can get los. Or find oneself. The Idiot, after major pieces such as Flexible SilenceGlass Tooth or Miroku, testifies once again to Saburo Teshigawara’s creativity. Whether it be with group or duo pieces, he uses the body as an amazing artistic laboratory.

They combine in a contemporary re-imagining of a classic play by Calderón. A study of desires as recognisable in today’s world as at any time in the past 400 years. The longing for authentic experience, and the need to dream.

Sydney Opera House – 08/12 Aug, 2018 Sydney (Australia)


Two women dance on stage inside an increasingly small space. One is clothed. The other naked, both moving in perfect sync with the other. This is Split a  work of contemporary dance by fearless Australian Lucy Guerin.


After a successful run in 2017. Split is returning to the stage to awe audiences with its stark. But beautiful portrayal of power, vulnerability and synchronicity. Bringing Split to life on stage are dancers Melanie Lane and Lilian Steiner. The latter of which has won a Helpmann Award. For best dancer in 2017 (with Melanie Lane nominated in the same category).

As the size of the area in which the dancers move decreases. The choreography becomes fraught with tension. Ambiguity surrounds the performance. The dancers locked in an struggle. Are they in a relationship. Or are they two halves of the same person?

Split isn’t explicit in its meaning and it doesn’t need to be. Also, with the powerful performances of Lane and Steiner. Enthralling audiences.Backed. By a rhythmic and complex percussive. Score by UK composer Scanner (real name Robin Rimbaud). Finally, Split is an hour of frantic, mesmerising contemporary dance.

Alain Platel

Festival de Marseille 06/07/08 July – France


For more than thirty years, the choreographer and director Alain Platel and his collective, Ballets C de la B (C for Contemporary, B for Belgium), has constantly pushed the boundaries of dance, theatre and music. A unique combination of grace and triviality, the grotesque and the sublime, charged with human fragility, his work takes audiences to the limits of human suffering with delicacy and empathy.

Alain Platel trained as a remedial teacher and is a self-taught theatre director. In 1984, with friends and family members. Also, he set up a dance company operating as a collective.

Michael Jackson: On the Wall review

National Portrait Gallery – Until October 21 2018 London


HIs every crotch grab sent jolts of ecstasy across the globe, his every spasmodic hip thrust left the world reeling. That’s an inhuman level of power for one human to have. It ended up being too much for Michael Jackson, and maybe too much for the rest of us too, which may explain how the National Portrait Gallery can put together a whole show of art inspired by MJ and without it being mega-cheesy or ultra-dull. I had more reservations than an over-hyped London restaurant when it came to this exhibition Concert Music, but let it be publicly stated here: I was wrong.

Power of black America.

But don’t come expecting biographical information, chronology, memorabilia or easy narratives. This is about artistic reactions to the king of pop, not chintzy nostalgia. The show treats MJ as the ultimate symbol of fame, obsession, talent and the power of black America. It begins with the MJ you expect. He’s sat on a horse, clad in ludicrous armour, in an obscenely ostentatious Kehinde Wiley portrait. Showy, proud, showbiz. And then look at the starry-eyed adoration in Andy Warhol’s manic documenting. But that’s the façade.

Susan Smith-Pinelo’s dancing cleavage, bouncing to ‘Working Day and Night’ across a series of screens, tells you infinitely more about the man. MJ made the world dance, and in the process opened floodgates of black sexuality and cultural pride. There are plenty of brilliant black artists here. Glenn Ligon paints MJ as a child as if it’s a self-portrait, Isaac Julien uses his face in collages, Auppau Junior Boakye-Yiadom attaches helium balloons to a pair of shoes, leaving them eternally on their tiptoes. This is MJ as a statement of the power and legitimacy of black America, a revolution in pop and culture.


But he also represents the absolute excesses of fame. Suddenly, MJ becomes twisted, troubled, fragmented. He’s Jesus in David Lachapelle’s photos, he’s the capitalist antichrist of communism in Dan Mihaltianu’s installation of masks, he’s the modern Baudelaire in Lorraine O’Grady’s photos. But he’s a ghostly spectre too. Jordan Wolfson obscures everything but MJ’s eyes in a glaring video, taken from the musician’s statement against accusations of child molestation. The show takes a very dark turn, and Wolfson’s piece is the most disturbing work here.

But maybe Candice Breitz’s video installation of 16 Germans singing the entirety of ‘Thriller’ start to finish sums it up best. In their MJ outfits and out of tune, obsessive voices, these hilarious, passionate doofuses make you realise that MJ never really existed: he was an idea, a god, an idol to worship.

Not everything here is brilliant, but as a whole, this exhibition is an incredible example of using art to decode, uncover and reveal myriad concepts and ideas. This is a show about fame and obsession, about how desperately we seek idols and how remorselessly we consume them. It’s also about how much impact one person can have on the world. That’s the true power of Michael Jackson: the way he makes you feel.

Martha Argerich (Argentina)

Concert Performance on 07 July 2018 Colmar (France)


There are few artists in the world that become a legend while alive. Martha Argerich is one of those rare pianists to have raised her art to dazzling heights. The exemplary story begins in her native Argentina. Where from the age of two and a half years, her precocious talent for the piano is identified. When she comes to Europe to continue her musical education. She has already performed on stage at the Teatro Colón. She retains the excellence of her outstanding play, full of ardor and sensitivity. From a long tradition of musicians including the famous Nikita Magaloff (friend of Prokofiev), Friedrich Gulda or Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli.

Martha Argerich won the Geneva Competition at the age of 16 years and three prizes at the Chopin Competition in Warsaw. All mapped out, her great career will however be like no other. Fiercely free, she has a reputation to never sign a contract and admirers still have painful memories of the long years in which she moved away from the scene. The recitals became a challenge for the artist who suffered from too much solitude. After which she decided in 1980 to only play either when accompanied by an orchestra, or surrounded by her friends such as Nelson Freir., Misha Maisky or Gidon Kremer. The most incredible is that even today, even though the orchestral repertoire is less bountiful than before, the great pianist Martha Argerich has lost none of her skills or talent. Each Concert Music is a suspended moment, stolen from eternity.

Gary Clark Jr.

Concert Saturday 14 July 2018 – Grande Halle De La Villette, Paris, (France)


Acclaimed as the savior of blues, Gary Clark, Jr. has shared the stage with many legends of rock and roll. His live performances, as well as his recordings, blend rock, soul and blues, infusing fluid guitar with a guttural howl and a falsetto trill that mix together. Despite his roots, Clark comes across as someone who is forging something unique in the Concert Music world. More specifically, his 2010 self-titled EP debuts his ability to explore various genres of music, while demonstrating his independence and distinctiveness from the heavily saturated music industry.

Austin music club.

Born and raised in Austin and rockin’ a guitar since the age of 12, Clark played small gigs throughout his teens – until he met promoter Clifford Antone, proprietor of the Austin music club, Antone’s, which was the launching pad for Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimmie Vaughan. Soon after meeting Clifford, Clark began to play with an array of musical icons, including Vaughan, who, among Vaughan and others in the Austin music community helped Clark along his musical path, facilitating his ascent in the Texas rock & roll scene. Today, Clark is one of the many black musicians in rock & roll who are resurrecting the blues for a mdern-day audience. Critics claim his music highlights how the influence of rock and roll and the blues have ubiquitously shaped virtually every medium of music over the past century, ranging from hip-hop to country music.

Bruce Nauman: Contrapposto Studies

By: Caroline Bourgeois, Erica Battle, Jean-Pierre Criqui, Damon Krukowski, Noé Soulier, Michael Taylor. Interview by Carlos Basualdo.


“Contrapposto” refers to a pose in which the human subject is rotated slightly so that the torso is positioned off the axis of the lower body. American artist Bruce Nauman (b.1941) explores this concept of ancient art. With his most recent project, in which he revisits his 1968 video piece Walk with Contrapposto. It depicts the artist’s attempt to hold the classic pose as he walks down a narrow hallway. Nauman uses today’s digital manipulation technologies. Bruce builds on this early work in an entirely new context. Thus, he calls into question the representation of human movement, of human immobility throughout history.

Contrapposto series.

This volume, designed by the London graphic studio Zak Group. Presents the documentation of the Contrapposto series by Nauman from 2015 to 2019. As well as the original video. With new tests that extrapolate the use of space. Performances by Nauman at all. Throughout his career.

By Sarah Urist Green (US)


Over 50 missions, ideas and prompts to expand your world and help you create great new things to put in it

Curator Sarah Urist Green has left her office in the basement of an art museum to travel and visit a wide range of artists. By asking them to share messages that relate to their own ways of working. The result is You Are an Artist, a creative journey through which you will invent imaginary friends. Sort books. Declare a cause. Build a landscape. Find your group and become someone else (or at least try). Your challenge is to filter these assignments through the prism of your own experience. To create art that reflects the world as you see it.

The process.

You don’t need to know how to draw well. Stretch a canvas. Mix in a paint color that perfectly matches that of a mountain stream. This book is for anyone who wants to make art. Whatever their level of experience. The only materials you will need are those that you already have on hand or that you can get for free. Full of ideas, techniques and inspiration from the history of art. This book opens the process. The artist practices and proves that you too have what it takes to call yourself one.

Art Povera

By Germano Celant (Italy)


Critical book. Photograph of Germano Celant documenting the movement known as “Art Povera / Arte Povera”. Includes a short text followed by photographs for each artist. Walter de Maria. Michelangelo Pisteletto. Stephen Kaltenbach. Richard Long. Mario Merz. Etc. “This book does not aim to be an objective and general analysis of the phenomenon of art or of life. But rather an attempt to flank (both art and life) as accomplices of change. Attitudes in the development of their daily future. The book does not claim to be objective since the consciousness of objectivity is a false consciousness. The book, consisting of photographs and written documents. Bases its critical and editorial assumptions on knowledge. Criticism and iconographic documents give a limited vision. And a partial perception of artistic work.

Object of consumption.

This book, when it reproduces the documents of artistic work, refutes the linguistic mediation of photography. The book, even if it wants to avoid the logic of consumption, is an object of consumption. There is no need to think about looking for a unitary and reassuring value, immediately refuted by the authors themselves. Rather, there is the need to seek changes there. The limits, the precariousness and the instability of artistic work. “- text of Celant’s introduction” Stating That “.

Bill Traylor

By Valérie Rousseau, Debra Purden (USA)


Born into slavery around 1853/4 on a cotton plantation in Benton. Alabama, Traylor has become one of the most important self-taught artists of the twentieth century. And certainly one of the most celebrated African-American artists. Along with Thorton Dial and William Edmondson. The story of Bill Traylor’s life and work is a remarkable one. It is a story that deserves attention both nationally and internationally.

This publication. Generously illustrated with full-page high-quality reproductions. Provides a close examination of Traylor’s recurrent themes. Composition schemes. Favored iconography, and contextual information related to the artist’s biography. Creative process and tools. Visual environment, and artistic mindset.


Each artwork is considered in a context beyond that of an isolated image. And in response to one another. Forming a series of intricate and consistent narratives. Intriguingly cinematic in its development. The elements of Traylor’s biography are the anchors of an individual mythology. Instead of merely being a basic depiction. The subject becomes a visual statement structuring Traylor’s mind. Bringing together hidden symbols from Kongo Vodou. Hoodoo. Southern Baptist. Freemasonry, and Blues sources, as well as layers of references. Slavery, uncensored violence in the Jim Crow era. And turbulence within the black enclave known as ‘Dark Town’ in Montgomery, Alabama.
