    ANGELA DE LA CRUZ // Azkuna Zentroa, Bilbao

    Solo Exhibition

    The exhibition Homeless takes its title from one of Angela de la Cruz' first works breaking the stretcher, Homeless (1996). It was one of her first paintings to use the surrounding space, not only to contain the work but also to emphasise its condition as a painting. This great yellowish painting with its broken stretcher rises up from the ground, lurking in the corner of the exhibition space.

    KATHARINA SIEVERDING // PS 120, Berlin

    Group Exhibition

    The Way Things Run investigates art’s ability to speculate labor politics. Through artworks – be they images, object, or immaterial experiences – artists may effectively narrate histories of labor, informed and shaped by social and geopolitical factors in local, regional or national contexts. At the same time, as capitalist society’s prime producer of symbolic value, the complex concept and industry of “art” is itself embroiled in a range of deeply problematic labor processes, unfolding as art is made, displayed, exchanged and speculated.

    DIETER APPELT // Kurt Tucholsky Literaturmuseum Schloss Rheinsberg

    Solo Exhibition

    Dieter Appelt's metrically-structured drawings of recent years were created as individual notations, whose open arrangements of lines and dots nevertheless require a musical interpretation. The Sonar Quartett, founded in 2006, will perform his drawing No. 37 (2016) at the opening of the exhibition "Vortex  Für Marguerite Duras" and will develop an improvisation based on Appelt's drawings.
    More
    Appelt's concept of notation provided the initial spark for the eponymous exhibition at the Akademie der Künste. He uses it in novel ways as well as in tribute to the French writer and filmmaker Marguerite Duras. The exhibition also includes photographs and films. The exhibition takes place as a collaboration between the Akademie der Künste and the Kurt Tucholsky Literaturmuseum at Rheinsberg Palace.

    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.
