Works by English photographer Matt Henry will on view at Polka Galerie in Paris from September 10 through October 29, 2016.
Fascinated by the American politics and culture of the 60’s and 70’s, Matt Henry’s work revolves around the concept of “photographic short stories”: staged photo novels narratives in period costume that portray a dissenting America. His first monograph, Short Stories , explores the rise of progressive politics against a background of small town conservatism.
Albertina in Vienna is showing from June 26 through Octobre 2, 2016 60 fascinating self-portraits by Jim Dine .
The self-portraits, which Dine began painting in the 1950s, serve to catalyse an independent, intense, and surprising dialogue with the artist and his output. And Dine’s diverse experiments with a wide range of techniques and materials address themes including youth and old age, intimacy and extroversion, and seriality and creativity on paper—enabling these self-portraits to open up new insights into a supposedly familiar oeuvre.
Museum Kunst der Westküste in Alkersum presents from 26 June 2016 through 8 January 2017 works by photographer Mila Teshaieva .
Developing the work over the course of two years as Artist-in-Residence at the Museum Kunst der Westküste, Föhr, the artist interacted closely with islanders and was accepted into the inner circles of island life. Created in a style reminiscent of old paintings, the work forms the island as an imaginary world, at the same time underlining a touching fragility of its real essence.
Exhibition Museum Tinguely Basel
Museum Tinguely Basel presents from June 8 through September 25, 2016 the first museum survey of acclaimed British artist Michael Landy.
The exhibition will span Landy’s entire career, bringing together works from Break Down 2001, where the artist systematically destroyed all of his possessions in a former department store in London, through to Credit Card Destroying Machine 2010, Saints Alive 2010-13, among many others.
The elaborately designed catalog is bound as a stiff soft cover with a four-sided closed block, which the reader has to »destroy« to open the book.
