Nalini Malani was born in 1946 in Karachi, before the 1947 Partition of India. Her work—which spans the mediums of painting, sculpture, installation, performance, and works on paper—explores issues relating to gender, class, and race in a postcolonial world.  The exhibition features Transgressions II (2009), a video/shadow play from the Asia Society Museum Collection. This three-channel video integrates the folk sensibility of traditional shadow plays with new technology, creating a mesmerizing projection of colors and imagery.

Fashion is celebrated this spring at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the retrospective Patrick Kelly: Runway of Love, which explores the meteoric rise and remarkable achievements of a 1980s legend whose clothing was worn by women of every age, from actress Bette Davis, late in her life, to singer Vanessa Williams, then in her twenties. This is the first exhibition to showcase the full scope of Kelly's head-to-toe runway ensembles, and will include selections from the artist's significant holdings of black memorabilia, videos of his exuberant fashion shows, and works by renowned photographers Horst P.

Danh Vo   New window
Date: Thursday, 24 Apr 2014 23:36
In an incredibly short time, the young Danish artist Danh Vo has gained great global recognition with his work, which is at once conceptual and poetic. The work We the People (detail), which will be shown at the Faurschou Foundation Beijing, is part of a 1:1 copy of the Statue of Liberty, which for the past few years Vo has been presenting in exhibitions throughout the world.  Vo's works are often inspired by his own experiences and often include readymade objects, which, through the context of a particular exhibition, become part of a particular historical narrative. Thus Danh Vo deconstructs, interprets, and reinterprets our shared history in surprising and innovate ways.

For the tenth exhibition since its opening in 2011, Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo presents a new and original work by the acclaimed British artist and filmmaker Steve McQueen.  Created with an extreme economy of means, his works hover between the personal and the universal, the literal and the abstract, evading definition and multiplying experiential and interpretive possibilities. In addition, certain iconic McQueen works stem from unflinching observation of the body—often his own—with ambiguous carnal undertones, others drawn from a potent, at times bleak, political consciousness addressing specific historical moments.

The Generali Foundation has entrusted its internationally acclaimed collection to the Museum der Moderne Salzburg as a permanent loan. This first show, offering a selection of roughly 2,100 works by 250 artists, will provide insight into some of the characteristics of this renowned collection.  One central theme-based group of works comprises objects in which art, design, and architecture merge to shape but also articulate a critique of utopian ideas. Bruno Gironcoli's phallic sculptures, Dan Graham's glass pavilions, Hans Hollein's Mobile Office (1969), Gordon Matta-Clark's interventions in abandoned buildings, and Walter Pichler's TV-Helmet (1967) have meanwhile become icons of this theme.

Colour drop, a solo exhibition of new work by Christina Mackie on view April 27–June 29, will be the London-based Canadian artist's first museum exhibition in the United States. Mackie's work spans a range of media. Her practice is empirical, reliant on observation but prompted by personal reflection and a curiosity for the natural world. Her exhibition at the Renaissance Society will include large-scale sculptures, glass and ceramic works, a series of indented wooden panels, as well as an arrangement of found and natural objects.

The end is certain: the human body is mortal. Although the span of an average human life has increased over the course of evolution, eternal life was not intended or imaginable for the human organism. At the beginning of the 21st century, the body as we know it is poised at a threshold of radical transformation. Through biomedical developments, its vulnerability is steadily diminishing. For example, cells and DNA can be replicated artificially, and organs can be replaced.

While the images he creates with the camera are known to the world, the art that he collects which inspires him has remained largely private.

Guggenheim Museum and Henry Ittleson, Jr., Professor of Modern European Art at New York University, the Guggenheim will host the artist William Wegman in conversation with Richard Armstrong, Director, Solomon R.

An exhibition by Alina Szapocznikow (1926–1973), one of Poland's outstanding artists, is currently presented, for the first time in Israel, at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Szapocznikow's artistic activity was short-lived—in the final years of Modernism and on the verge of new trends in art—but it yielded a cycle of radical, reflexive works which embody the artist's traumatic biography—life in concentration camps and terminal illness—while resonating with Surrealist aesthetics, Nouveau Réalisme, and Pop art. The thematic and conceptual axis at the core of her art is the human body—with its sensations, passions, and transience—as motivator, sensor, and witness; as an existential experience in the cycle of life and death.

Composition as the chosen premise extrapolates the exploitation of natural resources to a definition for social productivity today. There is a monstrous yet very real similarity between the depletion of natural resources and the exhaustion of our psyche. Beneath an apparent return to the colonial system, what we once confidently called the "first world" is beginning to show signs of a systemic crisis.

Who better to celebrate the anniversary at 49 Nord 6 Est than an anarchitect! FRAC Lorraine, a singular, unclassifiable place, enjoys subverting and mixing up knowledge, and above all, experimenting. There is no one better than Gianni Pettena to transform this space and its perception by creating an airy, mercurial installation that goes against the grain of centuries-old, static architecture... By proposing to hide the building that has housed FRAC Lorraine for the past ten years, Pettena's gesture renews the poetics of the site's inauguration.

In 1987 the Centre d'Art Contemporain hosted die Mond, der Sonne, the final collaboration between Marina Abramovic and the German artist Ulay before they separated on the Great Wall of China during their performance The Lovers: The Great Wall Walk. For the Centre's 40th anniversary, Marina Abramovic is returning to Geneva for a public exercise from the Marina Abramovic Method—"Counting the Rice"—in a site-specific structure designed by the architect Daniel Libeskind.
