Helmut Newton: Brands
Helmut Newton Foundation – Dec 03 to May 14, 2023 Berlin (Germany)

 

 

 

 

 

The exhibition Helmut Newton. Brands brings together over 200 photographs. Including many unknown motifs from Newton’s collaborations with internationally renowned brands such as Swarovski, Saint Laurent, Wolford, Blumarine, Redwall, and Lavazza.

Gun for Hire.

When it came to composition and style, the photographer did not differentiate between magazine editorials and direct brand commissions, which were often arranged through advertising agencies. Newton referred to himself ironically as A Gun for Hire. A term that also served as the title of the 2005 posthumous exhibition of his commercial photography, shown first at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco and then at the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin. Included in the exhibition at that time was Newton’s extravagant, award-winning black-and-white ad campaign for Villeroy & Boch from 1985.

Sinks and toilet.

Newton showed the brand’s sinks and toilet bowls being delivered to a prestigious villa – carried by young women – with constellations of figures more reminiscent of Raymond Chandler’s detective novels than everyday life. His aesthetic rendering of both luxurious and everyday products and the remarkable shift in conventional contexts of use are captivating. Only a few photographs from the earlier exhibition on Newton’s commercial photography will be on view in Helmut Newton. Brands – such as the magnificent black-and-white series for Absolut Vodka with Kristen McMenamy, produced in Sweden in 2000.

1980s and ’90s.

Helmut Newton. Brands picks up where A Gun for Hire left off, showcasing photographs Newton shot mainly in the 1980s and ’90s for high-paying advertising agencies and corporate clients, mostly in and around Monaco. In the three front exhibition rooms, we encounter fashion images produced for the luxury industry, such as Newton’s interpretations of Yves Saint Laurent’s latest fashion designs, from haute couture to prêt-à-porter. Newton’s productions from season to season are as diverse and individual as the women’s clothing he depicted. The visual compositions sometimes transcend reality, transporting us to distant emotional and exotic spheres.

Nick Cave: Forothermore
Guggenheim Museum – Until Apr 10, 2023 New York (US)

 

 

 

 

 

Nick Cave (b. 1959, Fulton, Missouri) has become internationally celebrated for his elaborate installations and textile works. Including his iconic Soundsuits, which blend sculpture, costume design, and instrument-making. Nick Cave: Forothermore will be a survey exhibition covering the entire breadth of the artist’s career. It will feature sculpture, installation, video, and rarely seen early works.

Neologism.

The title is a neologism, a new word that reflects the artist’s lifelong commitment to creating space for those who feel marginalized by dominant society and culture. Especially working-class communities and queer people of color. The show will both highlight the development of Cave’s singular art practice and interrogate the promises, fulfilled or broken, that the late 20th and early 21st centuries offered to the “other.”

Joan Mitchell: Paintings 1979-1985
David Zwirner – Until dec 17, 2022 New York (US)

 

 

 

 

 

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings by Joan Mitchell focusing on the years 1979 to 1985. A significant and deeply generative period within her decades-long career—on view at the gallery’s 537 West 20th Street location in New York. Featuring paintings from both public and private collections, as well as from the holdings of the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the show will coincide with the final leg of the artist’s critically acclaimed retrospective—previously on view at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Baltimore Museum of Art—which opens at Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris on October 5, alongside the concurrent exhibition Claude Monet – Joan Mitchell.

Four-decade.

Mitchell established a singular visual vocabulary over the course of her more than four-decade career. While rooted in the conventions of abstraction. Mitchell’s inventive reinterpretation of the traditional figure-ground relationship and remarkable adeptness with color set her apart from her peers, and resulted in intuitively constructed and emotionally charged compositions that alternately conjure individuals, observations, places, and points in time. Her prodigious oeuvre encompasses not only the large-scale abstract canvases for which she is best known, but also smaller paintings, drawings, and prints.

In France.

For Mitchell, this period, which included her important 1982 solo exhibition at the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris, was a time of profound artistic development, growth, and focus on the possibilities of painting. As she became even more fully immersed in daily life at her property in Vétheuil, France. Surrounded by lush gardens, and challenged and inspired by new creative relationships. Mitchell’s studio practice flourished, and her work became even more ambitious and expansive.

Mark Hachem GalleryGeraldine BeigbederHappenArt is
delighted to announce the representation of Norman
Reedus and present the artist solo exhibition in Paris titled
“Live the life you love”.

Paris Photo Week.

American actor Norman Reedus nerver goes anywhere whitout his
camera, save for when he is in front of the camera as Daryl Dixon. Amotorcycle-riding, crossebow-wielding zombies hunter in the
Walking Dead, his face dirty from his endless fights against “the
walkers”. During the Paris Photo Week, the actor-photographer will
soon exhibit new works depicting his travels and encounters shot over his many adventures. The opening and exhibition, curated by
Geraldine Beigbeder for HappenArt (curator of artists such as Peter Doherty and Robert Farber among others…) will be held at the gallery Marc Hachem, at 28 place des Vosges, 75003, from the 10th to the 17th of November.

Art book.

Fans of his work will also be able to receive an art book of hisphotography, signed by Reedus on site in the presence of the Walking Dead Team, among others, who will be in Paris for a shooting of an episode of the Walking Dead this week.

“People have always described my photography as taking a harsh
image and making it beautiful. I always liked images that make you take
a pause and try to figure them out”
Norman Reedus.

Ben Vautier – Death Isn’t Real

Ben Vautier – Death Isn’t Real

Ben Vautier – Death Isn’t Real (La muerte no existe)
MUAC, Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporaneo – Until Apr 02, 2023 Mexico City (Mexico)

 

 

 

 

 

In his prodigious production, Ben Vautier creates uninhibited, powerful and total work. Over the course of his career, Ben’s fusion of art and life has been as sincere as it has been forceful. The primary theme of his work is art itself: the need to always be committed and radical, the view that any human practice can be understood as an expression of culture and even its apparent uselessness.

Fusing art with life.

Polyhedric, intense, tireless and tenacious, Ben has expanded his boundless production by fusing art with life in key decades of recent history, always ahead of his time. His attitudes and ways of operating in his first years of work augured many of the trends of the eighties and nineties: the radical nature of certain actions, often hidden by their simplicity. The centrality of the passing of time.

The importance of the text.

The importance of the text. And the capacity to bring together different people in apparently ordinary actions. In a large part of the artistic practices of the last two decades of the century, one can find elements that bring us back to his work. In any case, Ben’s masterpiece is Ben himself: a perpetual motion machine that analyzes the complex reality we must negotiate each day. Deploying a limitless talent and work ethic, Ben sets out to explain the meaning of everything to us.

Meret Oppenheim: My exhibition
MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art – Oct. 30 to Mar 04, 2023 New-York (US)

 

 

 

 

 

“No one will give you freedom,” Meret Oppenheim said in 1975. “You have to take it.” Inspired by the visionary Swiss artist’s own plans for an exhibition of his art, Meret Oppenheim: My Exhibition brings together nearly 200 works that offer a broad retrospective view of Oppenheim’s innovation throughout his life. From its remarkably open concept art, fierce originality and spirit.

Six decades career .

Best known for her famous fur-lined teacup, the extent of Oppenheim’s six-decade career is largely unknown outside of her native Switzerland. Many paintings, sculptures, assemblages, reliefs, jewelry creations, works on paper and collages are exhibited for the first time in the United States. This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to view Oppenheim’s output. From bold objects first presented alongside those of the Surrealists in the 1930s, to painted collages that incorporate natural materials found in the Alpine landscape, to sculptures in bronze and semi-precious stone – in all its exuberant variety.

Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child

Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child

Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child
Gropius-Bau – July 22 to Oct 23, 2022 Berlin (Germany)

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Woven Child is the first major survey to focus exclusively on Louise Bourgeois’ fabric-based works. The exhibition charts the artists’ lifelong connection to textiles, and the memories they conjure, through a diverse body of sculptures. Installations, drawings, collages, books and prints.

Bourgeois’ fabric works, that she only began working on in her eighties, are among her most compelling and intimate creations. The late decision to create artworks from her clothes and household textiles was a means of transforming as well as preserving the past. Bourgeois incorporated these objects, which held memories associated with specific places and people, into sculptural installations that will be on display at the Gropius Bau. Such as her Cells and free-standing “pole pieces”. This deeply-researched exhibition sheds a new light on Bourgeois by linking her fabric works to her material processes, her own biography, and themes of the body, memory, femininity, trauma and repair.

Light: Works from Tate’s Collection

Light: Works from Tate’s Collection
ACMI – Until Nov. 13, 2022 Melbourne (Australia)

 

 

 

 

 

Curated by Tate in the UK and drawn from their prestigious collection, Light: Works from Tate’s Collection celebrates groundbreaking moments from over 200 years of art history. Also, artists who have harnessed this elemental force through painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, installation and the moving image.

70 works.

Linked by their fascination with light as material and subject, more than 70 works feature in this successful exclusive exhibition. Including must-see historic paintings by iconic artists like the great Romantic painter J.M.W. Turner, John Constable, Wassily Kandinsky and Josef Albers, plus the atmospheric beauty and transient light effects captured by Impressionist painters Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro and Alfred Sisley.

Modern artists.

These extraordinary paintings are juxtaposed with equally groundbreaking works by modern and contemporary artists: the crystalline sculpture Stardust Particle (2014) by Olafur Eliasson. The kaleidoscopic The Passing Winter (2005) by Yayoi Kusama. The immersive Raemar, Blue (1969) by James Turrell. Tacita Dean’s 16mm film Disappearance. at Sea (1996) and the moving sculpture Liquid Reflections (1968) by Liliane Lijn. Taken collectively, these radiant works establish fascinating connections between time. The medium and the style, throwing light onto the viewer’s body and absorbing it in visions of infinite brilliance and luminosity.

The Story of the Moving Image.

Presented alongside our award-winning centrepiece exhibition The Story of the Moving Image, which explores the essential contribution of light to the moving image, this Melbourne Winter Masterpieces® exhibition, organised in cooperation with Tate, illuminates centuries of artistic practice and uniquely places film in a broader art historical context.

Ron Mueck: mass

Ron Mueck: mass

Ron Mueck: mass

NGV Australia & The Ian Potter Center – Until Jan 15, 2023 Melbourne (Australia)

 

 

 

 

 

Born in Australia, Ron Mueck has been creating hyper-realistic figurative sculptures since his debut as an artist in 1997. His work is known for his attention to detail, choice of subjects and use of scale.

Human skull.

Originally commissioned for the 2017 NGV Triennial, Mass, which includes 100 large-scale resin sculptures of the human skull, is a momentous and confronting work.

Throughout history, the skull has been a powerful symbol in the aesthetic lexicon of almost every culture. It features prominently in Renaissance art. Particularly in the Dutch still life and vanitas tradition of the 16th and 17th centuries, where the skull represents the ephemeral. The skull has also been used in other ways. In the skull and crossbones of the pirate Jolly Roger, and as a sign of Halloween and Day of the Dead.

Contemporary.

In a contemporary context, the Mass has a particular resonance. As the world grapples with enormous and increasingly intense challenges. The atrocity of war, pestilence, climate change, floods, fires and famine. It is a poignant monument for our times.
