The Generation 1970–1979
Multimedia | Museum of Contemporary Art Krakow, Krakow, Poland | Friday 20 October 2017 - Sunday 1 April 2018
In the series of presentations Artists from Krakow we address the artistic legend of the city, blessed since the mid-nineteenth century with many outstanding talents. Krakow has been famous for its many firsts – the first academy of fine arts in Poland (1818), the first national museum (1879) and the first Institute of Art History in the country (1882). The city is synonymous with culture, which today is Krakow’s main industry.

Photography | The National Museum of Art, Oslo, Norway | Friday 1 September 2017 - Sunday 14 January 2018
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.

Delirious times demand delirious art, or so this exhibition will propose. The years between 1950 and 1980 were beset by upheaval. Around the globe, military conflict proliferated and social and political unrest flared. Disenchantment with an oppressive rationalism mounted, as did a corollary interest in fantastic, hallucinatory experiences.

Dialectical Landscape - Thinking Central Park
Architecture | Galerie Richard, New York, United-States | Wednesday 5 July 2017 - Sunday 27 August 2017
Skyscrapers and Central Park co-exist dialectically. "Central Park is essentially a void. A 13.123 x 2.625 feet void. It was conceived on the basis of an idea of spatiality where density was to be developed, but it is the density of the buildings of Manhattan, in their hyper-growth expansion, that has traced out that recreational rectangle for the dispersion of Homo faber. That is, the park is a void because it works as a courtyard inside the urban detention". In Thinking Central Park the artist fills the space with constructions considered as shelters. At the opposite in Dialectical Landscape he adds some empty spaces for recreational or mobility purposes.

It is rare for a museum to dedicate an exhibition to a private collection. Generally, it is a matter of borrowing a work of art here or there, and discretely indicating the name of the generous lender if the latter does not wish to remain anonymous. With this exhibition, Carla Sozzani, a legendary figure of contemporary elegance, welcomes us into her intimate space. Her collection of photographs, which covers the 20th and 21st centuries, is remarkable in all respects.

No American road trip looms larger in our collective consciousness than the one bound west, and has been both the favorite subject and a formidable challenge for most artists, from Robert Frank to Jack Kerouac. In 2015, Italian-born photographer Renato D’Agostin took the challenge and travelled the 7,439 miles from New York to Los Angeles on his 1983 BMW motorcycle, developing film in hotel sinks along the way. This initiatic journey gave rise to a series of bright and contrasted images, overwhelming with beauty, subtlety and grace, entitled "7439".

In 2015, fashion trend forecaster and authority Li Edelkoort declared “the end of Fashion as we know it,” and in her “manifesto for the next decade” provided “ten reasons why the fashion system is obsolete.” In doing so, she echoed a sentiment shared by fashion industry insiders, journalists, pundits, and scholars alike—from reporter Teri Agins, author of the 2000 book The End of Fashion, to fashion theorist Barbara Vinken, who coined the term “postfashion” to describe the contemporary zeitgeist. As the world of fashion continues to evolve, the term “fashion” itself demands redefinition. fashion after Fashion takes up this call, seeking a new understanding of fashion that accommodates a wider range of practices and ideologies.

Moved by the rejection of a materialist and consumerist interpretation of the American Dream, Counterculture youths embraced ideals of self-sufficiency and self-expression.

Internationally renowned New Zealand artist, Anne Noble, has developed a number of projects in recent years concerned with bees, global species loss and the revitalization of human relationships to complex living systems. Her work with bees draws on her experience as a beekeeper. Noble sees the bees as a species indicator - both as a living system under stress, a reminder of our part in the global environmental crises we face and also a warning, as she says..." maybe what is happening to the bees we are also doing to ourselves'.
