« Alice Neel : Peintre de la vie moderne » – Fondation Vincent van Gogh, Arles

« Alice Neel : Peintre de la vie moderne » – Fondation Vincent van Gogh, Arles | Gender and art | Scoop.it

Cette rétrospective sur Alice Neel (1900-1984) – l’une des plus importantes artistes nord-américaines, pourtant longtemps ignorée de son vivant – est le fruit d’un partenariat entre plusieurs institutions européennes. À travers l’exposition, s’exprime le souhait de mettre en lumière les qualités de cette artiste au pinceau réaliste. Les portraits de Neel, empreints d’une forte dimension psychologique, témoignent de près d’un siècle d’évolutions dans les comportements envers le genre et l’ethnie, et des bouleversements dans la mode au sein de la société américaine.


Jusqu'au 17 septembre 2017

Shilpa Gupta: 'Drawing in the Dark' at Kiosk Ghent - Artmap.com | Gender and art | Scoop.it

KIOSK presents Drawing in the Dark, a solo exhibition by Indian artist Shilpa Gupta. The title refers to the clandestine movements and practices in border areas, and to the metaphor of the border or line, which links several of the works on display here. The show is part of Gupta’s ongoing investigation into ‘borders’ – specifically that between India and Bangladesh – and is an extension of the My East is Your West project she developed for the 2015 Venice Biennale.

Hanne Darboven Reflects the Infinite Feeling of History

Hanne Darboven Reflects the Infinite Feeling of History | Gender and art | Scoop.it

"The current Hanne Darboven installation at Dia:Chelsea, “Kulturegeschichte 1880–1983″ (“Cultural History 1880–1983,” 1980–83), is the artist’s most powerful work. [...]


It would take pages upon pages to describe the full extent of the project and, in this case, the exhibit at Dia. This is part of Darboven’s genius: the construction of a seemingly endless archive that renders the viewer mute. It is not possible to describe each piece within the work nor to detail each aspect of the current iteration. Darboven mirrors reality in the form of countless permutations, which then fragment into a seemingly infinite series of refractions. She does not describe the world around her but rather reflects it, remaining inside and refusing to participate in the distancing and violence of objectification that are inherent in description."


Hanne Darboven: Kulturegeschichte 1880–1983 (Cultural History 1880–1983) continues at Dia:Chelsea (545 West 22nd Street, Chelsea, Manhattan) through July 29, 2017.

Agnès Varda’s Playful Recycling of Her Art

Agnès Varda’s Playful Recycling of Her Art | Gender and art | Scoop.it

“Reduce, reuse, recycle.” This catchphrase is of uncertain origin, but linked to the rise of an eco-friendly consciousness and the birth of the Environmental Protection Agency in the 1970s. It’s also a fitting motto for Agnès Varda’s work. She reuses leftovers, often from her own work. It’s a running theme in her oeuvre. Just look at her late-career masterpiece, The Gleaners and I (2000).


Agnès Varda continues at Blum & Poe (19 E 66th St, Upper East Side, Manhattan) through April 15.

2 or 3 Tigers - HKW, Berlin

2 or 3 Tigers - HKW, Berlin | Gender and art | Scoop.it

Lieko Shiga, part of the 'Rasen Kaigan' series, 2009


"'2 or 3 Tigers' is a group exhibition about colonialism, media and modernity, specifically in East Asia. The figure of the tiger itself is the medium through which mythological, colonial and modern histories are evoked and folded into the present, highlighting unstable identities and shifting ground, as well as structural continuities and modernization ideologies. Modernity is reflected as a colonial pattern inscribed in the history of nation states, militarization and financialization, but also as a an ontological revolution, as an order that fundamentally upsets social organization, cultural patterns and indeed cosmologies, and that in most societies in the past 200 years has led to a profound crisis of consciousness."

Joëlle Tuerlinckx at Kunstmuseum Basel - Artmap.com | Gender and art | Scoop.it

"The Kunstmuseum Basel | Gegenwart presents a solo exhibition of work by Joëlle Tuerlinckx. The artist, who was born in Brussels in 1958, has undertaken an extensive examination of the museum and the surrounding urban fabric, creating numerous new pieces that will take up the entire ground-floor gallery. [...]

Tuerlinckx’s art is based on a sustained and time-consuming engagement with simple things; for three decades, she has gathered found items or articles of daily use that crossed her path and methodically collected them in a comprehensive archive. These objects have inspired her to reflect on what it means to be a human being—they are, to use the artist’s term, elements of the real."

Maria Lassnig - Museum Folkwang

Maria Lassnig - Museum Folkwang | Gender and art | Scoop.it

Maria Lassnig (1919–2014) ranks among the most important artists of her generation. She turned to her own body as both the starting point and subject for her paintings and drawings: How does it feel to be in one’s own body, and how can this feeling be lent visual form? The Austrian artist, who only achieved widespread acclaim late in her career, grappled with these questions throughout her life. Visitors to the major retrospective will have the chance to see the full range of her work in an exhibition featuring over 40 paintings and selected films.
