Your Selfie Stick (and you)
Photography | Lianzhou Foto, Lianzhou, China | Saturday 2 December 2017 - Tuesday 2 January 2018
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.

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.

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.
