R. H. Quaytman
+ x, Chapter 34
Painting | Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, United-States | Friday 12 October 2018 - Sunday 3 February 2019
The paintings of contemporary artist R. H. Quaytman employ a variety of pictorial and conceptual strategies, ranging from the literary to the logical, from the representational to the abstract, and from the optical to the physical. This sweeping scope has allowed Quaytman to explore many of the factors that enable a painting to generate meaning, whether they be its content, context, or mode of production. In the course of considering the medium’s potential, Quaytman has repeatedly used other artists or their work as subject matter, a practice that reflects on how any work of art is necessarily understood, by artist and viewer, in relation to other artworks.

“Art must be an integral part of the struggle,” Charles White insisted. “It can’t simply mirror what’s taking place. … It must ally itself with the forces of liberation.” Over the course of his four-decade career, White’s commitment to creating powerful images of African Americans—what his gallerist and, later, White himself described as “images of dignity”—was unwavering. Using his virtuoso skills as a draftsman, printmaker, and painter, White developed his style and approach over time to address shifting concerns and new audiences. In each of the cities in which he lived over the course of his career—Chicago, New York, and, finally, Los Angeles—White became a key figure within a vibrant community of creative artists, writers, and activists.

The Decisive Moment
Photography | International Center of Photography, New York, United-States | Wednesday 23 May 2018 - Sunday 2 September 2018
Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Decisive Moment examines Cartier-Bresson’s influential publication, widely considered to be one of the most important photobooks of the twentieth century. Pioneering for its emphasis on the photograph itself as a unique narrative form, The Decisive Moment was described by Robert Capa as “a Bible for photographers.” Originally titled Images à la Sauvette (“images on the run”) in the French, the book was published in English with a new title, The Decisive Moment, which unintentionally imposed the motto which would define Cartier-Bresson’s work.

Claude Monet (1840–1926) stands like no other painter for the impressionist style, and as the French “Master of Light”, he was also a central pioneer of 20th-century painting. He painted by the seaside, at Normandy’s rugged coastal cliffs, and on the banks of the Seine, with the water surfaces in his pictures reflecting the bright, vivid colours of lush vegetation in his summer landscapes and the frozen fog’s mysterious grey and blue in his winter ones.

Chicago native Ivan Albright (1897–1983) remains one of the most provocative artists of the 20th century, a “master of the macabre” famous for his richly detailed paintings of ghoulish subjects. The 1928 painting, Flesh, announced the theme that obsessed the artist throughout his career: the decaying human body. Late in life, he continued urging himself to "make flesh more like flesh than ever has been made before; make flesh close, close, and closer, until you feel it.”

We live in a digital culture that has completely transformed our visual habits. We witness and participate in the mass use of the “me” – previously reserved to but a few – because this staging is the only way to prevail in this world of visual competitiveness. However, when faced with this overexposure of images, we should ask ourselves where the creator of images is positioned.

Photography | COMPANY, New York, United-States | Sunday 22 October 2017 - Sunday 26 November 2017
Throughout the 1970s, filmmaker Barbara Hammer toured the United States, Africa, and Europe, making film after film about women and the lesbian experience, neither of which had seldom been seen by a woman, for women on screen before. She made a slew of now-legendary experimental films, including Sisters! (1973), Dyketactics (1974), Multiple Orgasm (1976), Sappho (1978), and Double Strength (1978), more or less inventing lesbian cinema at a time when such material had largely been relegated to the pornographic imagination of male artists and filmmakers.

From the 1950s, an artistic trend emerged in European architectural photography. A number of photographers explored architectonic form as a means of artistic expression. In Norway, Bjørn Winsnes (1925–2012) was the foremost exponent of this movement. The photographs in this exhibition depict buildings by architects such as Erling Viksjø, Eliassen and Lambertz-Nilssen, Robert Esdaile and Geir Grung. Winsnes highlights the sculptural shapes and tactile surfaces of the architecture. Many of the photos appear as abstract compositions; others give insight into a social setting, as was typical of Nordic architectural photography of the period.

Van Gogh & Japan
Painting | Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Tokyo, Japan | Tuesday 24 October 2017 - Monday 8 January 2018
Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) was profoundly interested in Japan. From his Paris period to his early days in Arles, he collected ukiyo-e prints and writings on Japanese culture. Conversely, Japanese artists and intellectuals became enamored of Van Gogh after his death and made pilgrimages to his grave in Auvers-sur-Oise in France. Through some 40 of Van Gogh’s oil paintings and sketches plus 50 works by Japanese ukiyo-e artists and Van Gogh’s contemporaries, and abundant historical materials, this exhibition explores the mutual fascination between Van Gogh and Japan, and presents fascinating new perspectives.
