WELCOME TO YOUR GUIDE TO THE ART WORLD

WE HAVE ROUNDED UP A SELECTION OF UPCOMING SHOWS FOR YOU TO SEE, BROUGHT TO YOU IN A REGULAR WEEKLY SNAPSHOT.

Rosetta Whitehead

Rosetta Whitehead, Milieu.

Rosetta Whitehead: Light Paintings
Gallery 286
Opening 3 – 31 March 2016

Gallery 286 presents a series of photographic works by Rosetta Whitehead. Her images manage to recreate, using the camera alone, striking visual effects, the type these days people learn how to create over Photoshop. Swirling colours, blur and dynamic focal points come together to create moving compositions reminiscent of renaissance paintings.

Performing for the Camera
Tate Modern
Opening 18 February – 12 June 2016

What does it mean to perform for the camera? Is it serious performance art, portraiture or simply posing for the camera? This exhibition studies the impact photography has had on our relationship with the self and the way we behave. The exhibition features over 50 seminal photographers including Yves Klein, Yayoi Kusama, Cindy Sherman and Marcel Duchamp who have explored the relationship between photography and performance, engaging with serious provocative and sensational topics,as well as humour, improvisation and irony.

Maria Hassabi: PLASTIC
The Museum of Modern Art
Opening 21 February – 20 March 2016

Artist and choreographer Maria Hassabi’s PLASTIC is a commissioned live installation in which dancers perform throughout MoMA continuously during opening hours. They move between poses at a barely perceptible pace across the Museum’s floors and down its staircases. The degree of speed in these movements invite the audience to closely examine the small shifts in the performers’ motions over time.
