We have rounded up a selection of upcoming shows for you to see brought to you in a regular weekly snapshot
In the coming week there is: Isa Genzken: Geldbilder Hauser & Wirth Opening 25 March – 16 May 2015 Using the language of capitalism in her paintings, Genzken looks at ideas about self- and social-examination. Her work, covering multiple disciplines including found-object installation, photography and sculpture draws from the culture of Minimalism, Punk and assemblage art. Through this, she faces the topics of human experience in contemporary times and the often tough climate of capitalism. http://www.hauserwirth.com/exhibitions/2423/isa-genzken-geldbilder/view/ Hauser & Wirth 23 Savile Row London W1S 2ET U.K —————————————————— Vincent Meessen/Thela Tendu: Patterns for (re) cognition Kunsthalle Basel Opening 13 February – 25 May 2015 This is the most comprehensive exhibition in Switzerland of Belgium artist Vincent Meessen. Belgium representative to the Venice Biennale, Meessen primarily works collaboratively looking at spaces associated with colonialism. The exhibition features new modular sculptures, a series of 16mm films, sound work, found object from early 19th century Kingdom of Cuba and folded paper work. Meessen is presented in this exhibition alongside the little-known Congolese painter Thela Tendu. Meessen acts as featured artist and curator gathering the largest exhibition to date of Tendu’s work; approaching the scenography how he likes to call it, as a “constructivists scenario”. http://www.kunsthallebasel.ch/exhibition/patterns-recognition/ Kunsthalle Basel
CH-4051Basel Switzerland —————————————————— Everybody Seems So Famous: Cory Arcangel GAMeC – Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporenea di Bergamo Opening 31 March – 28 June 2015 This is the first solo show in an Italian institution by American artist Cory Arcangel. Considered one of the most influential artist in the New Media Generation, Arcangel’s work concerns itself with the concept of safeguarding identity and memory in the digital and physical spheres. He looks at the relationship between technology and culture, territory and innovation and the the appropriation of these things through the reusing culture of the media. Growing up during the digital boom has greatly influenced Arcangel and whose work is in direct response to this new culture. Private view: 31 March 2015, 7pm http://www.gamec.it/it/mostre/cory-arcangel-all-so-crazy-everybody-seems-so-famous GAMeC – Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo Via San Tomaso, 53
Italy—————————————————— Anish Kapoor Lisson Galery Opening 25 March – 9 May 2015 The sublime artist Anish Kapoor marks a radical return to painting in his new solo show at the Lisson Gallery. Kapoor’s trademark exploration of the intensive process of creation is revealed again in this show in vast flares of red and white resin and silicon paintings. He unearths the raw and vulnerable internal spaces of the psyche and the body with nods and references towards Rembrandt’s humanist painterly tradition, of Soutin and Bacon and also the wider cultural sphere of social and political disorder. Moving away from Kapoor’s recent works of mechanism, this exhibition revisits the organic beginnings of his early days as an artist, solely working with the manipulation of painterly materials. http://www.lissongallery.com/exhibitions/anish-kapoor–13 The Lisson Galery 27 & 52 Bell Street London U.K NW1 5DA —————————————————— Pangaea II: New Art from Africa and Latin America Saatchi Gallery Opening 11 March – 6 September 2015 Saatchi Gallery’s second edition in their Pangaea series brings to you the works of contemporary art being made right now in the two continents that are Latin America and Africa. Named after the single super continent from which the two emerged from, Pangaea brings together 19 artists working in painting, sculpture, photography and installation. http://www.saatchigallery.com/artists/pangaea_II/ Saatchi Gallery Duke of York’s HQ King’s Road London U.K SW3 4RY —————————————————— Picturing Sheffield Millennium Gallery – Museum Sheffield Opening 29 November 2014 – 12 April 2015 Picturing Sheffield looks at the city of Sheffield, U.K in a past and present examination between the city’s identity and the people who have lived and died there. Sheffield is one of the greenest cities in Europe yet it is barely recognised as a beautiful city on the european stage. The exhibition asks what the term ‘beautiful’ means and whether it can be discovered in unconventional places. http://www.museums-sheffield.org.uk/museums/millennium-gallery/exhibitions/current/picturing-sheffield Millennium Gallery Arundel Gate Sheffield U.K S1 2PP
