Photography | Gagosian Gallery, New York, United-States | Thursday 29 January 2015 - Saturday 7 March 2015
Sometimes, we have a moment—when we’re in the middle of, say, Times Square, or Grand Central Station, or on the subway during rush hour—when the city feels like infernal chaos. But on another day, you will have a moment where you wake up and see the absolutely beautiful, fluid, and harmonic ballet of different creatures and forces moving around. That’s the energy I like to capture… —Vera Lutter
Inspired by New York’s light, architecture, and perpetual state of flux, Lutter turned to photography in the early 1990s as a means to record the continuously changing cityscape.

Photography | BILDHALLE, Kilchberg, Switzerland | Friday 6 March 2015 - Thursday 30 April 2015
With the rise of Street Photography, cars were bound to peep out on most photos taken. Still cars are photographed not only as a transportation device through the packed streets of cities or in the great outdoors emptiness but also as a traveling place of intimacy in the public space, where people talk, eat, sleep, love, as in a ever moving home.

Photography | SF Camerawork, San Francisco, United-States | Thursday 4 December 2014 - Saturday 24 January 2015
In the award-winning series Aftermath, San Francisco-based photographer Kerry Mansfield courageously documents her two-year journey through breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and reconstructive surgery. Mansfield was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 31 and soon learned that women in their 30s are the fastest growing group of people with breast cancer in the United States. Shocked to be facing this unexpected and frightening disease, Mansfield searched for information about what her immediate future would look like and found that the photographic documentation she was looking for didn't exist. It was this that inspired the series that would become Aftermath.

Photography | Michael Hoppen Gallery, London, United-Kingdom | Monday 1 December 2014 - Friday 23 January 2015
“I was born at the beginning of the Showa Era. There was a great war during my boyhood and then I lived during the period of re-construction and growth and now I slowly approach the evening of life. Through these photographs the cosmology is an illusion of the firmament at the same time it includes the reality of an era and also the cosmology of a changing heart” Kikuji Kawada.
The Michael Hoppen Gallery is proud to announce the first solo UK exhibition of Kikuji Kawada’s ‘The Last Cosmology’ series. Originally published in parts in the 1980s, it was compiled into a publication and solo exhibition in 1995.

MACBA presents Chromophobia, an exhibition that brings together works from its collection with the work of invited contemporary artists. The pieces included in this exhibition in black and white occupy the museum's architecture creating a story that cancels the expansive and intangible possibilities of color in order to think of the formal grammar and senses installed by lighting and opaque matter extremes.
Photography | Château Palmer, Margaux, France | Monday 10 November 2014 - Friday 6 March 2015
The two series “Bas-reliefs” and “Cheminements”, each comprising 10 large format photographs, show the relation between man and nature today, through the sharpness and singularity of the artist’s view. “Cheminements“ brings together a collection of pathways and tracks winding through nature outside of the city. The way the images have been treated, the out-of-focus framing, the emphasis on a vanishing perspective as an escape, with the final destination only being guessed at, are really modifications and manipulations encouraging the viewer to survey the landscape. The tension generated by these effects conveys an intensity and precision to the point that you can almost imagine that you are really there.

Rembrandt’s later years were turbulent and marked with controversy, but they also produced some of his most soulful, deeply moving and strikingly modern works. Having already suffered the early loss of his wife and three of their children, Rembrandt’s later years were burdened with bankruptcy, acrimonious legal proceedings with a former lover, and the loss of his common-law wife and only remaining son. However, far from diminishing as he aged, Rembrandt’s creativity gathered new energy.

Reveling in the expectations of the photographic process, Morell’s work is charged with discoveries concerning optics, aperture, exposure, and most notably, camera obscura. Since 1991, Morell has been using the camera obscura to effectively turn entire rooms into cameras: the outside world is transposed onto the interior, creating unexpected and often surreal imagery. In Camera Obscura: Late Afternoon View of The East Side of Midtown Manhattan, 2014 (pictured), the New York City skyline floats over two mysteriously lit doors and the two worlds are flattened into one imaginary place.

Hulk Elvis represents for me both Western and Eastern culture, a sense of a guardian, a protector, that at the same time is capable of bringing the house down. —Jeff Koons.
With sources as diverse as children’s art, comic book characters, and figures from classical antiquity, Koons draws a common thread through cultural history with works that attempt to touch the core of the human psyche. Working through conceptual constructs including the new, the banal, and the sublime, his art has evolved from its literal, staid beginnings in readymades to baroque creations that extol innocence, beauty, sexuality, and happiness in confounding combinations of abstraction, figuration and sumptuous effect.

As an artist, Christopher Thomas has established a reputation above all with his city portraits: silent photos of city scenes, taken with a large-format camera and printed on hand-made laid paper. The film is a black-and-white type 55 film by Polaroid.
Sculpture | Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw, Poland | Thursday 25 September 2014 - Tuesday 6 January 2015
The phenomenon of the discovery of female artists whose work remained below the mainstream radar of their time has been changing the scenery of the history of the art of the second half of the 20th century. These artists not only experimented formally and embarked intuitively on new themes but, rejected by mainstream modernist trends, they remained working in isolation, or at least marginalised. And yet, they were pioneers who invented the language of contemporary expression. A point in case is the art of Maria Bartuszová.
