"Marina Abramović" at The Royal Academy - 23 September to 1 January, 2024
Chronicling the story of the most highly-regarded performance artist today, this exhibition presents key moments from Abramović’s career through sculpture, video, installation and performance. Works such as The Artist is Present will be strikingly re-staged through archive footage while others will be reperformed by the next generation of performance artists who are trained in the Marina Abramović method.
"Wolfgang Tillmans: To look without fear" at SFMOMA - 11 November to 3 March, 2024
For our West Coast members who couldn’t make it to this show at MoMA in New York, the MoMA on the other side of the country makes sure that more people can witness the most comprehensive exhibition of the influential artist’s work to date. Members can also stop by Kusama's first solo presentation in Northern California, opening on the 14th of October at the SFMOMA.
"Judy Chicago: Herstory" at The New Museum - 12 October to 14 January, 2024
"Judy Chicago: Herstory" will span the monumental artist's sixty-year career, encompassing the full breadth of the artist’s contributions across painting, sculpture, installation, drawing, textiles, photography, stained glass, needlework and printmaking. Expanding the boundaries of a traditional museum survey, the exhibition will place Chicago’s work in dialogue with pivotal works from other women artists across time.
"Sophie Calle: It's Up To You Darling" at Musée Picasso-Paris - 3 October to 28 January, 2024
Since the late 1970s, Sophie Calle has been the focal point of numerous exhibitions globally. Embracing the challenge of this exhibition, the artist and curator cleverly and profoundly explores the critical reception of Picasso's creations and his dedication to ensuring their legacy for future generations.
"Manet/Degas" at The MET - 24 September to 7 January, 2024
You may be very familiar with both artists and their works, but this special MET exhibition of more than 150 pieces will be just that — special.
"Lee Ufan" at Hamburger Bahnhof - 27 October to 10 March, 2024
Hamburger Bahnhof introduces the initial all-encompassing review of the artist Lee Ufan in Germany. Lee is a legend in the realm of minimalist sculpture and painting, first emerging as a prominent figure within the Japanese Mono-ha school and the Korean Dansaekhwa movement. The showcase features approximately 50 pieces created over the course of the last five decades and even includes Rembrandt’s famous "Self-Portrait with Velvet Beret" in dialogue with Ufan's work.
"David Hockney: Drawing from Life" at The National Portrait Gallery - 2 November to 21 January, 2024
The last six decades of Hockney's creation come into focus for an exhibition staged 20 days prior to the space's closure during Covid. We're nearly as excited about the reopening of this wonderful museum as we are for the thirty new portraits on view.
"Faith Ringgold: American People" at MCA Chicago - 18 November to 25 February, 2024
Bringing together over fifty years of work, “Faith Ringgold: American People” provides the most comprehensive assessment to date of the artist’s impactful vision. From creating some of the most indelible artworks of the civil rights era to challenging accepted hierarchies of art versus craft through her experimental story quilts, Faith Ringgold has produced a body of work that bears witness to the complexity of the American experience.
