Painting | Museum of Modern Art, Istanbul, Turkey | Wednesday 23 May 2012 - Sunday 23 September 2012

As an urban traveller, he has been tracking walls in various cities across the world for almost half a century. With the guise of an anthropologist, Do?ançay examines these surfaces that are open to all manners of contemporary interventions ranging from posters to slogans, and messages with sexual content to newspaper clippings. Do?ançay’s works with different techniques and styles, are positioned in both a historical and contemporary ground through their incorporation of the icons of popular culture and political symbols.

This retrospective is the first fully dedicated to the drawings of Gustav Klimt (1862—1918), one of the seminal figures in modern art. It explores the stylistic evolution of his drawings as well as their centrality to his artistic enterprise.

Art Of Another Kind: International Abstraction And The Guggenheim, 1949–1960
Multimedia | Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, United-States | Friday 8 June 2012 - Wednesday 12 September 2012
In the 1950s, the Guggenheim Museum's then-director James Johnson Sweeney championed what he called the "tastebreakers" of his day—those individuals who "break open and enlarge our artistic frontiers." This decade witnessed the revitalization of experimental art and the advent of fresh and bold styles, a shift that was rather presciently documented and examined in 1952 by French critic Michel Tapié in his book Un art autre (Art of another kind) and an eponymous exhibition. Taking its title from that pivotal study, this collection-based presentation seeks to consider the artistic developments of the post–World War II period and draw greater attention to the lesser-known tastebreakers in the museum's collection alongside those long since canonized.

Edward Abbey once wrote “You can't study the darkness by flooding it with light.” The photography of Scott B. Davis is charged with the same notion. Originally from Maryland, Davis emulated the westward journey of Charles Fletcher Lummis and was bewitched by the spirit of the desert and its magical transformation at day’s end. Studying photography at the University of New Mexico, he discovered his passion and his destiny. Davis remains fascinated by the desert landscapes and towns of California with his new work concentrating on subjects closer to his home in San Diego.
