John Olsen: Goya’s Dog

National Art School, Darlinghurst – Oct 29 to Nov 27, 2021 Sydney (Australia)

 

 

 

 

 

 

The National Art School is proud to present John Olsen: Goya’s Dog. A powerful exploration by an extraordinary Australian artist. From his creative awakening in Spain, through the darkness that threatened to overwhelm him at times. And his ability to reach the light, to pursue a long and acclaimed career.

John Olsen is one of the National Art School’s most renowned graduates. A NAS Fellow, AO and OBE. Goya’s Dog features over 50 major works, sketchbooks and drawings, many of which have not been seen in public for generations.

1950s.

The exhibition begins in Spain in the mid-1950s. When the young artist is fascinated and inspired by Spanish culture: art, poetry and music. He was led to explore a darker and more vulnerable side of his personality and his experience. Another stay in Spain in the mid-1960s transformed his palette, which became more dynamic and daring.

“It was a remarkable experience as Spain was completely isolated from 20th century fashion. It was still the essential heart of Europe. And then, as I started to study, I realized that although Spain is a bright and sunny country. That his main painting was based on the basis of tone: Velazquez, Goya, Murrillo. Somehow these earthy tones echoed in the soul of Spain.

“It was very deep… rather than thinking outward, it made you think inward. Also in Australia today, they love the sunny side of the world, while the Spanish love the dark side of the world. I found this very intriguing. John Olsen, February 2021.

1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

The exhibition also features Olsen’s work from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. A period when his vital voice as an urban Australian ‘larrikin’ emerged. Olsen’s landscape has become like a theater or a stage, where the human drama takes place. It is lively, teeming with metaphysical life; in parallel and embracing real life.

Known for the irrepressible vitality of his work and his dynamic personality. Olsen is a visual poet with a deep love of poetry underlying his work. Yet he also faced the darkness in his life, reflected in works such as Donde voy? Self-portrait in moments of doubt (1989). This powerfully introspective painting is part of a venerable history of Western art, which looks mortality in the face.

“I’m 93 years old and I’m more fascinated by the dark side. Not in a sad sense, but in a research sense.” John Olsen.

Thaddaeus Ropac – Oct 13 to Nov 13, 2021, London (UK)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ron Mueck 25 years of sculpture, 1996-2021. The artist’s first exhibition at Thaddaeus Ropac, will mark the most comprehensive gallery study of the internationally renowned sculptor to date. From his biggest to his smallest works. The exhibition features Mueck’s most famous sculptures from a career spanning two and a half decades. Presented alongside new and unpublished works. His unparalleled eye for physical and emotional detail traces the full spectrum of the human experience. From the beginning of life during pregnancy and childbirth. Until its end in death, with unsettling power.

Dead Dad.

The artist’s best-known work, Dead Dad (1996-97), may be on display in the UK for the first time in over 20 years. It was first featured in the Royal Academy’s landmark exhibition Sensation: Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection (1997), which helped establish the artist’s international reputation. Acquired by Charles Saatchi when it was created, the work has since been part of the Stefan T. Edlis collection, whose sculpture is on loan.

The play stopped most of the [Sensation] visitors… in their tracks. Dead Dad was something so shockingly real and shockingly unreal at the same time as unexpected trauma. He left an indelible mark. One of Mueck’s earliest works, he immediately established his uniqueness.

The seven ages of man.

In art historian Jasper Sharp’s essay for the exhibition, he examines Mueck’s sculptures through the prism of the seven ages of man. Referring to William Shakespeare’s monologue “Everybody’s a Scene”, As You Like It (1623). The works on display trace the full spectrum of human experience. From “the womb to the grave” as Robert Rosenblum describes it, including the infant. the schoolboy, the young lover, the soldier, the middle-aged justice, the eldest and the “last scene of everything … second childishness and simple forgetfulness”.

Picasso and his image in East and West Germany

Picasso and his image in East and West Germany

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.

Heidi Bucher: Metamorphoses

Heidi Bucher: Metamorphoses

Heidi Bucher: Metamorphoses
Haus der Kunst Museum – Until Jan 16, 2022 Munich (Germany)

 

 

 

 

 

 

With Heidi Bucher (* 1926 Winterthur, † 1993 Brunnen, Switzerland) the Haus der Kunst presents an important artist. Rediscovery of the international neo-avant-garde. She explores the constraints and liberation processes of human forms of existence with her latex works. With her performative work, she directs the gaze towards the body in the room, where experiences take place. Relationships and emotions. For the first time, the retrospective will present to the public all the central groups of works. From the beginnings to the experimental period in Los Angeles and New York. The main work with the architectural skins to the subsequent work created in Lanzarote.

Body sculptures.

Bucher’s initial fascination with the interplay between art and fashion spawned genderless body sculptures in California in the early 1970s. Wearable and dancing body sculptures “Bodyshells” already celebrate their concept of sculpture. Between performance and object and allow to merge sculpture, architecture, design and dance. They will be reconstituted and reactivated for a conference as part of this exhibition.

Latex skins.

With latex skins, performed with enormous physical effort. Bucher transferred psychological processes to the material. Taking possession and transforming rooms became a leitmotif in the mid-1970s. Starting with the departure of their own Borg artist studio in the cold room of a former butcher’s shop. Also in her parents’ house, she applied liquid rubber to the floor and walls of the “gentleman’s room” (1978). Formerly reserved for male family members, and with this skin it symbolically replaced the patriarchal family structure.
