    ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE // Salomon Guggenheim Museum, New York

    SOLO EXHIBITION

    In 2019, thirty years after Robert Mapplethorpe's death, the Guggenheim will celebrate the sustained legacy of the artist's work with a yearlong exhibition conceived in two sequential parts in the Mapplethorpe Gallery on Tower Level 4. More
    The first phase of the exhibition will feature an installation of highlights from the Guggenheim’s rich collection of Mapplethorpe holdings, including selections from the artist’s early Polaroids, collages, and mixed-media constructions to his iconic, classicizing photographs of male and female nudes, flowers, and statuary; his portraits of artists, celebrities, and acquaintances; his more explicit depictions of the S&M underground; and some of his best-known self-portraits.

    ALBRECHT SCHNIDER // Aargauer Kunsthaus

    Group Exhibition

    The title of the exhibition Big Picture at Aargauer Kunsthaus is programmatic: It features unusually large works, with the largeness not always relating merely to the format in terms of surface or volume. The phrase Big Picture is also used synonymously with “overall view,” “wider context” or “totality of a situation.”

    JOÃO PENALVA // Bombas Gens Centre d’Art

    Group exhibition

    The Gaze of Things: Japanese Photography in the Context of Provoke brings together a selection of images that focuses on the artists involved in the formation of VIVO (1959-1961) such as Ikkō Narahara, Shōmei Tōmatsu, Eikoh Hosoe, Akira Satō or Kikuji Kawada, as well as the collective responsible for Provoke magazine (1968). The experimental way in which these artists presented images as products of an era characterised by political events of great relevance became a phenomenon and a reference to future photographers inside and out of Japan.
