German graphic designer renowned for his figurative and expressive paintings. The art collection includes 13 large oil paintings. Baselitz performed using a “contact printing” technique. Using black and gold paint to create a striking contrast. The artist uses a stencil to make a bold but gently inverted silhouette on the canvas. The result not only highlights the use of the medium on imagery. But it also causes a feeling of freedom and unpredictability. A nod to the idea of ​​the moving human framework.

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.

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.

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.

Charlotte Salomon – (Berlin, 1917 – Auschwitz, 1943)

Monestir de Pedralbes – Until Frb 17, 2019 Barcelona (Spain)


Charlotte Salomon’s life was short but intense. Marked by love. Death and a family history of suffering. Art was a refuge where she could overcome the past. And come to terms with a present that saw her being deported to Auschwitz. Where she would die in 1943. The Monastir de Pedralbes, continuing its commitment to resarch and disseminating information. On silenced women. Gives a voice to this Jewish artist. And the time she lived in, with some of the 782 gouaches that make up her ‘Life? Or theatre?’

Vanessa Safavi

The Approach Gallery – Until Feb 10, 2019 London (Engand)


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).

Paula Rego

Musée de l’Orangerie – Until Jan 14, 2019 Paris (France)


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”.

M. C. ESCHER (1892-1972)

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.

Andy Warhol “Shadows”

Dia Art Foundation – Oct 26 / Dec 15, 2018 NY (USA)

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. Leiter also played an important role in the formation of the New York school of photography in the 1940s and 1950s.

Hilma af Klint

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.

Often referred to as the Cindy Sherman of Japan. Yasumasa Morimura has put a gender-bending spin on a photographic genre. That might be called performative self-portraiture. 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.

Zao Wou-Ki

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.

Korean-born, American artist Nam June Paik (1932–2006). Blazed a trail with video art that remains influential to this day. Paik’s TV Clock, one of SBMA’s most important media art works. 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. Pistoletto uses “poor” materials as a liberation from the traditional art system,.As in his 1967 work Venus of the Rags. A copy of the classical figure set against a mound of old clothes and rags. 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.

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

Brooklyn Bridge Park – Until Aug 26, 2018

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.”

Alexander Calder

Montreal Museum of Fine Arts – Sep 21 / Feb 24, 2018 Montreal (Canada)

The first major Canadian retrospective of Alexander Calder (1898–1976). Presents the work of one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. The exhibition centres on the inventive talent of this American painter and sculptor.

Calder questioned artistic conventions and reimagined the very nature of drawing and sculpture. With his pioneering use of industrial materials. Such as steel wire and sheet metal as well as found objects. By introducing the fourth dimension of time into sculpture. He entirely transformed the way objects animate space. And his invention of the mobile, as he explained. Opened up “a new possibility of beauty.” Calder also created stationary abstract works, which Jean Arp dubbed “stabiles” in 1932. From Paris to New York . Later Montreal with Trois disques (Man). Created for Expo 67. Calder moved in premier artistic and intellectual circles. (Cocteau. Duchamp. Le Corbusier. Léger. Mondrian. Miró. Prévert. Sartre. Varèse. among others). And established himself as a forerunner of the international avant-garde.

Major loans are among the 100 works. Also, that illustrate this ingenious artist’s extensive means of  expression. Ranging from paintings and drawings to wire circus figures. Hanging and standing mobiles. Sheet-metal stabiles as well as jewellery.

An exhibition organized and circulated by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. In collaboration with the Calder Foundation. It is presented in Montreal thanks to the support of the Terra Foundation for American Art and Pembroke.

“John Russell: DOGGO”

Bridget Donahue Gallery – Until Sep 05, 2018 new-York

The British artist and writer is known for his gonzo meditations. On death and nature, and on that score. The eponymous video centerpiece for his current show doesn’t disappoint. In it, a pair of performers respectively wear rubber. Over-the-head masks of a pug dog. And housefly as they search London. For a person gone missing from a nursing home. 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.”

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 Polaroid Project

The exhibition at C/O Berlin focuses on the use of the cult instant camera Polaroid in art, film and pop culture.

Museumsportal –  7 July /23 September 2018 Berlin (Germany)

The Polaroid camera has been an integral part of photographic history since the early 1970s: the self-developing images, the classic square format with the white edge and the light composition of the photos are the personification of the snapshot.

The Polaroid photo in art

In recent decades they have also enjoyed great popularity among artists. Andy Warhol used the Polaroids as a reference for his pop art and documented his work with it, Dennis Hopper researched with the camera for his films, and Richard Hamilton painterly redesigned the snapshots. In a collection of 250 photographs, the exhibition portrays the many possible uses of the Polaroid camera.

 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.

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

Aurélien FromentAurélien 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.”

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, 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.




Bachir in Wonderland (Short Film 16′)

With the presence of Bachir and the documentary directors.




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.

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.

Which tend towards a muted palette meant to recall the stark landscape of his country. His latest canvases feature a sort of protagonist in the form a dog smoking a cigarette. Who is portrayed in varying degrees of compositional devolution.

Ian Cheng

Cheng has made a rep for himself by creating “live simulations”. Imagineered with the help of a video game engine. In them, behavioral scenarios involving figures interacting. Within fantastical landscapes are programmed to play out or mutate on their own. For his debut at Gladstone Gallery. Cheng delves into artificial intelligence with BOB (Bag of Beliefs).

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.

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).

Stone and wood carvings, and found object assemblages. That reflect the country’s dynamically mixed cultural heritage.

French conceptualist Pierre Huyghe has dragged the Serpentine into an abandoned future. The images on the screens were imagined by human brains. But captured by computers, Now, deep neural networks are shaping and reshaping the images. It looks like a computer trying desperately to decode human thought. With the speed the images are going, you get a gross. Growing sense of fear that they’re only moments away from decoding how we work – the question is, what then?

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.

The Directors of Marlborough Gallery. Are pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings
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.

This Tucson native’s funky cartoonish. Figure paintings are consistent with a widespread trend among millennial artists who raid outsider art. Along with the more obscure reaches of pop culture. 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.

Karma Gallery – 23 Sep, 2018, New-York (USA)


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.

Ronnie van Hout

Buxton Contemporary – Until October23, 2018 Melbourn (Australia)


Ronnie van Hout has been creating aliens, robots and lonely figures for more than 30 years, confounding and thrilling art fans in equal measure with his uniquely funny brand of existential absurdism. He’s best known for creating sculptures that depict himself as a childlike figure, but has created work across video, photography, installation, sculpture and text.

This exhibition marks Buxton Contemporary’s first survey of an artist’s work since it opened earlier this year. There’ll be more than 20 of Van Hout’s works on display, drawn from both private collections and major public institutions. The works take inspiration from sci-fi, cults, classic cinema and even art history. The exhibition also features two brand new works.

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.

Songs of the Walés

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.

‘Writing New Codes’ presents three major pioneers of computer art – Waldemar Cordeiro (b. 1925 Rome, Italy – d. 1973 São Paulo, Brazil). Robert Mallary (b. 1917 Toledo, USA – d. 1997 Northampton, USA)

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.
