Big Objects not always Silent is the telling title for Nathalie Du Pasquier's first solo-exhibition in Austria. Covering an artistic career spanning 35 years, the exhibition brings together her paintings and patterns, sculptures and designs, constructions, carpets, and ceramics to create a world of different cities, of architectures and forms that fall under one roof to build a new understanding of how her practice has evolved.
July 15-November 13, 2016.

Secession presents three exhibitions until August 28, 2016. Vincent Fecteau's abstract sculptures defy summary description. Out of everyday staples like papier-mâché, cardboard, pictures from magazines, and paint, he fashions complex objects in which spaces simultaneously collapse and explode.
At the Secession, Vincent Fecteau presents a new series of ten painted sculptures.
Manon de Boer. Giving Time to Time, Manon de Boer primarily works with film and her art often subjects the medium itself to critical scrutiny: she insistently probes the interplay between image and sound and questions the power of pictures as well as their claim to truth.
The painter and illustrator Valerio Adami is widely regarded as an eminent representative of Italian Pop art. His exhibition in the Secession's Grafisches Kabinett is the artist's first solo show in Austria and showcases a series of paintings from his less well-known early oeuvre. Created before 1964, these works stand out for the particularly dynamic interplay between expressive abstraction and stylized figuration.
Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 10am-6pm.

Appropriation, storytelling, and reenactment, are some of the strategies that Mexican artist Mario García Torres uses to uncover (hidden) histories, narratives, and strategies embedded in sites and places, in order to highlight the limitations of factual evidence and the agency of historical records and objects. Mario García Torres. An Arrival Tale detaches the works by the artist in the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary collection from their original contexts and descriptions and offers them as a collection of narratives and artistic experiments open for reinscription. The exhibition seeks to collect, describe, and complicate narratives of transplantation, pointing to migrations, displacements, relocations, and resettlements, which span both time and disparate geographies.
June 17-November 20, 2016. Hours: Wednesday-Thursday 12-5pm, Friday-Sunday 12-7pm.

Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto (b. 1964) is one of the brightest names in the international contemporary art scene. In his installations, Ernesto Neto. Boa (Jibóia) continues the tradition of Brazilian modernism, an approach strongly characterised by the viewers' presence and participation. Through his art, Neto offers a moment of respite from the bustle of everyday life, calming the mind and tuning the senses.
Inspired originally by the shape of the head of a boa constrictor, the installation contains elements that Neto has been using in his work for more than 20 years: the unity of humanity and nature, sensuousness, experientiality and the production of positive energy.
The exhibition also reflects Neto's views on respecting the rights and traditions of indigenous peoples and the appreciation of cultural difference.

The exhibition Calm and Exaltation. Van Gogh in the Bührle Collection, taking place at the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles in spring and summer 2017, presents an ensemble of eight paintings that are representative of the artist's dazzling stylistic progression over the course of his brief career.
In 2017 Alice Neel: Painter of Modern Life makes a lengthy stop at the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles. Bringing together more than 70 paintings from numerous institutions and private collections, this landmark exhibition allows us to grasp the scope of Neel's oeuvre. As an artist who devoted herself to portraiture, Neel went against the dominant ideology in post-war New York, where abstraction was the ensign of contemporary art.
t is no coincidence, therefore, that two Sculptures by Rebecca Warren stand in the entrance courtyard of the Fondation. Through the medium of bronze sculpture painted in variegated colours, Warren interrogates an art history written by men and transforms these references into a dreamlike and disturbing amalgam.
Until September 17, 2017.

The work of Maurizio Cattelan provokes debates, reactions, thoughts.
Monnaie de Paris houses Maurizio Cattelan's largest European exhibition ever. From October 21, 2016 to January 8, 2017, Not Afraid of Love, curated by Chiara Parisi, director of Cultural Programs, sets Maurizio Cattelan's "comeback at work" in one of the most beautiful Palaces on the river Seine.
"Not Afraid of Love, it's a contradiction in terms: love might be the solution of every problem in the world, but there's no love in exhibition. The lack of love, or the quest for love, is the engine that moves every creature, and the cause of every war, probably".

The Nouveau Musée National de Monaco has developed a new dynamic program at Villa Paloma in two spaces - the videoroom and the project space - focused on artists whose practices could interact and dialogue with the Duane Hanson exhibition in the main galleries and question the mutual relationship between the viewer and the work of art.
Videoroom: Oscar Murillo, meet me! Mr. Superman, 2013-15 This video depicts a street scene in Murillo's hometown of La Paila, Colombia, in which people are seen chatting, drinking, and dancing to live music. February 20-May 30, 2016.
Leticia Ramos, Vostok, 2014 (Collection NMNM) Leticia Ramos' artistic investigation focuses on the creation of photographic apparatuses and their relationship to the captation and reconstructing of movement and presentation on video, installation and photography. June 15-August 28, 2016.
Project Space: Roland Flexner By questioning the techniques he uses and exploring how forms are made, Flexner shares with other artists the confidence that, in order to see, we need to signify what appears, and turn it into signs. February 20-April 17, 2016.
Thomas Demand from the NMNM and UBS Art Collection Berlin-based artist Thomas Demand is known for his large-scale photographs exploring the gap between reality and its representation. April 29-August 28, 2016.

The Nouveau Musée National de Monaco presents the work of late American sculptor Duane Hanson (1925-96) at Villa Paloma from February 20 until August 28, 2016. Throughout his forty-year career, Hanson created lifelike sculptures portraying working-class Americans and overlooked members of society. Reminiscent of the Pop Art movement of the time, his sculptures transform the banalities and trivialities of everyday life into iconographic material. The exhibition-initiated by the Serpentine Galleries, London-presents key works from the artist's oeuvre.
Hanson's early works comprised life-sized tableaux-depicting soldiers killed in action, police brutality and homeless people-that confront the viewer with devastating truths. Widespread criticism of his work Abortion in 1965 encouraged Hanson to formulate his social and political views as sculptures.

Vibration, stupefaction, "delightful horror," to quote Edmund Burke, are a few words to qualify the experience of the sublime: this singular feeling of attraction mixed with terror that we experience when we are confronted with the outburst and power of the elements. Born at the heart of the 18th century, this aesthetic and philosophic concept weaves the main thread of a reinterpretation of humanity's passionate history with nature. Gathering over a hundred artists, architects, and filmmakers worldwide, from Leonardo da Vinci to Rosa Barba, including, among others, William Turner, Susan Hiller, Dove Allouche, Werner Herzog, Lars von Trier, Robert Smithson, Agnes Denes, or Ana Mendieta, Sublime. The tremors of the world offers a dialogue between ancient and contemporary works. It explores the ambivalent and persisting attraction for the "Nature too far" (Victor Hugo) and catastrophes.
Until September 5, 2016.
Within the framework of the exhibition Sublime Japanese artist Tadashi Kawamata recreates for Centre Pompidou-Metz one of his masterful pieces.
Tadashi Kawamata. Under the Water - Metz will be on view until August 15, 2016.

From February 6 to June 5, 2016, will be on view two new exhibitions: Daido Tokyo & Fernell Franco: Cali clair-obscur at the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain in Paris.
Twelve years after his first exhibition at the Fondation Cartier in 2003, the eminent Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama will return to the foundation for a new exhibition that focuses on his recent work. Featuring a large selection of color photographs, Daido Tokyo will shed light on this lesser-known yet ubiquitous aspect of his photographic practice over the last two decades.
The Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain will present for the first time in Europe a comprehensive retrospective of the work of Fernell Franco, a major yet still under-recognized figure of Latin American photography. A photojournalist by profession, Fernell Franco developed a powerful personal body of work that addressed the precarious and conflicted nature of urban life in Cali, the city where he lived and worked for most of his career. The exhibition will bring together 140 photographs from 10 different series he produced between 1970 and 1996.
Hours: Wednesday-Sunday 11am-8pm, Tuesday 11am-10pm.

"My work is my body, my body is my work".
Through drawing, painting, photography and video, Helena Almeida (born Lisbon, 1934), calls into the question traditional disciplines, constantly seeking to transgress the limits of the canvas or the sheet of paper in order to create "habitable spaces" in which reality and representation intersect. In her works, her body, which is both subject and support, encounters and manipulates the surrounding world. As the site of both political and personal expression, it acts, touches, senses and marks, leaving behind it moving traces. Titled Corpus, the Jeu de Paume's retrospective presents, for the first time in France, a group of works that are emblematic of this major figure of contemporary Portuguese art, spanning the 1960s to the present day.
Helena Almeida. Corpus will be on view until May 22, 2016.

First shown at ARC as part of the solo exhibition The Razzle Dazzle of Thinking in 2010, Sturtevant. The House of Horrors (The Ghost Train) was the last major installation by Sturtevant (1924-2014) and the magisterial culmination of her oeuvre. Donated by the artist, over 10,000 works have now been added to the permanent collection at the Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris.
Here the museum is paying tribute to Sturtevant with a year-long presentation of a work that is monumental not only in size-some 300 square metres in all-but also in critical terms. Donated by the artist and her dealer, Thaddaeus Ropac, in 2013, The House of Horrors has been given its own exclusive space as one of the flagship works at the Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris.

Zilberman Gallery-Berlin is pleased to announce I AM AND I AM NOT, the first solo show of artist Aisha Khalid in Berlin. The exhibition will take place at Zilberman Gallery-Berlin, at Goethestrasse between April 28 and July 31, 2017.
The exhibition consists of various paintings, a diptych in book form as well as a site-specific installation. Strongly influenced by the figurative miniature tradition of the Mughal Empire, the Pakistani-born artist Khalid, takes the tradition one step further and contemplates on contemporary issues such as the female figure, or say, the global politics and the uncertainty surrounding us, as apparent in her previous works.
Khalid's radical-yet-subtle criticism represents itself in the use of abstraction. Furthermore, the artist invites us to re-think certain problems from a non-European perspective; what looks out of focus might refer to the precariousness of our era.

Whether in the form of delivery drones, smart sensors, or Industry 4.0-in recent years, robotics has been changing our everyday lives in fundamental ways. Design has a central role in this process, for it is designers who shape the interfaces between humans and machines. The Vitra Design Museum will present a major exhibition that examines the current boom in robotics in detail for the first time. Entitled Hello, Robot. Design between Human and Machine, the exhibition will showcase more than 200 exhibits from the fields of design and art-including robots used in the home, in nursing care, and in industry, as well as computer games, media installations, and countless references from film and literature. It will show the wide range of forms that robotics takes today and at the same time broaden our awareness of the associated ethical, social, and political issues.

Among the holdings of the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main is an important collection of outstanding works of minimal art of the 1960s and '70s. In a major survey featuring nearly 50 artists, the MMK is now presenting the masterworks of this collection comprehensively for the first time. Seriality, conceptuality and industrial production were the new principles pursued by the minimalists Carl Andre, Walter De Maria, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd and Fred Sandback, who revolutionized art in the 1960s with their radical works. For the first time in the history of art, they used industrially manufactured or processed materials and reduced their works to basic geometric structures they termed "primary structures." With this title, the exhibition at the MMK 2 also makes direct reference to the very first exhibition of minimal art - the landmark show of the same name staged at the Jewish Museum in New York in 1966.
Artists of the exhibition: Carl Andre, Richard Artschwager, Jo Baer, Bernd und Hilla Becher, Michael Beutler, Benedikte Bjerre, Alighiero Boetti, Bill Bollinger, George Brecht, Marcel Broodthaers, Walter De Maria, Dan Flavin, Ceal Floyer, William Forsythe, Günther Förg, Isa Genzken, Hermann Goepfert, Bethan Huws, Donald Judd, On Kawara, Ellsworth Kelly, Joseph Kosuth, Gary Kuehn, Barry La Va, Robert Mangold, Teresa Margolles, Sarah Morris, Bruce Nauman, Kenneth C.

The Städel Museum's programme for 2017 kicks off with an exhibition looking at the representation of spatial concepts in drawing and printmaking. From February 15 to May 14, 2017 Into the Third Dimension: Spatial Concepts on Paper from the Bauhaus to the Present will be shown in the Exhibition Hall of the museum's Department of Prints and Drawings. The show examines how such things as delineation, form, and volume, "inside" and "outside"-characteristics that define space and aid orientation-are represented in drawing and printmaking, in essence on flat, two-dimensional surfaces. The exhibition takes visitors on a tour beginning with the geometric compositions created in 1923 by El Lissitzky and László Moholy-Nagy, through to examples of printmaking in contemporary conceptual art.
It encompasses works by a total of 13 artists, including Lucio Fontana, Eduardo Chillida, Sol LeWitt, Blinky Palermo, James Turrell, and Michael Riedel.

The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt is presenting Blind Volumes, an installation realized by Berlin-based artist Rosa Barba (*1972), from September 23, 2016 until January 8, 2017. In this work created specifically for the Schirn, in which she responds to the openly accessible public setting of the rotunda, Barba combines the artistic media of film and sculpture. Inside the rotunda, she has erected an expansive, geometrically intricate steel construction consisting of some 80 serial framework elements. The work is 12 meters tall and nearly fills the entire lobby of the Schirn.

This solo exhibition by Fiona Tan. Geography of Time features major film works alongside new installation environments by the artist. Tan has transformed the ground floor of the MMK into a parcours in which video projections, audio and sculptural works join in a concentrated reflection on the individual in an increasingly disjointed globalized world. Fundamental questions on the identity of man in the 21st century arise in the process: how do we see ourselves, and what determines our perspective on the "other"?

With Katharina Grosse's paintings, the Museum Frieder Burda continues its series of monographic exhibitions of important international artists. In this context, Katharina Grosse, who has been considered one of the leading artists of her generation for many years now, adopts a very striking position. Her painting transcends, explodes and overshadows any kind of surface and turns it into a base on which to paint. In other words, it is directed at every surface in a room-walls, ceiling, floor-as well as the bodies and objects in the room.

This winter starting from October 21, 2016 at Tate Liverpool features Yves Klein, Edward Krasinski and Cécile B. Evans, three artists who take a performative approach to art's relationship with the world. Their visions investigate how theatrical gesture and staging can activate people and spaces to generate artworks, scenarios and installations.
Over seven prolific years until his premature death, Yves Klein (1928-62) pursued an expansive approach to art encompassing painting, sculpture, performance, theatre, music, film, architecture, esoteric spirituality and even judo. Edward Krasinski (1925-2004) is one of the most significant Eastern European artists of the 20th century. Born in Lutsk, now Ukraine, he studied design at the Arts and Crafts School and later painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow in the 1940s.
Cécile B. Evans is interested in the increasing influence that new technologies have on the way we feel and the way we relate to each other.
Yves Klein: Theatre of the Void and Edward Krasinski until March 5, 2017, Cécile B. Evans until March 19, 2017.

Victoria Miro is delighted to announce a new exhibition by Yayoi Kusama. Spanning the gallery's three locations and waterside garden, the exhibition features new paintings, pumpkin sculptures, and mirror rooms, all made especially for this presentation. This is the artist's most extensive exhibition at the gallery to date, and it is the first time mirror rooms have gone on view in London since Kusama's major retrospective at Tate Modern in 2012.
Yayoi Kusama's lifelong exploration of the self's relationship to the infinite cosmos has given rise to a highly influential career in which she has continuously innovated and re-invented her style. For the exhibition at the Wharf Road galleries, she has created three mirror rooms: All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins, Chandelier of Grief and Where the Lights in My Heart Go, all of which place the viewer within a universe of varying proliferating reflections. May 25-July 30, 2016.

This summer, Tate Liverpool presents two of the 20th century's foremost painters of the human body, Francis Bacon (1909-1992) and Maria Lassnig (1919-2014). Born just ten years apart, both artists devoted their careers to staging the figure, evoking bodily sensation and the human condition. We also present the first museum exhibition of New York-based painter Ella Kruglyanskaya (born 1978). Deeply committed to the many possibilities of painting, Kruglyanskaya emphasises the medium's relevance in our image-saturated society.
Francis Bacon: Invisible Rooms - Maria Lassnig - Ella Kruglyanskaya will be on view until September 18, 2016.

Mona Hatoum creates a challenging vision of our world, exposing its contradictions and complexities. Hot Spot is a steel cage-like neon globe which buzzes with an intense, mesmerising yet seemingly dangerous energy. Elsewhere electricity crackles through household objects, making the familiar uncanny.
This is the first major survey of Hatoum's work in the UK, covering 35 years from her early radical performances and video pieces, to sculptures and large-scale installations.

Liverpool Biennial, 14-18 NOW WW1 Centenary Art Commissions and Tate Liverpool have commissioned one of the major figures of British pop art, Sir Peter Blake, to "dazzle" a Mersey Ferry.
This is the third in the series of Dazzle Ship commissions, following Induction Chromatique à Double Fréquence pour l'Edmund Gardner Ship / Liverpool. Paris 2014 by Carlos Cruz-Diez on the Liverpool Waterfront, and Tobias Rehberger's Dazzle Ship on the River Thames in London. Sir Peter's design titled Everybody Razzle Dazzle will cover the Mersey Ferry Snowdrop, surrounding the passenger vessel with a distinctive pattern that can be seen for the next two years, as it continues its commuter service, River Explorer and Manchester Ship Canal Cruises; making this the first of the Dazzle Ship commissions to be a working vessel. Peter Blake (b. 1932) is a leading figure in the development of British pop art.
Unlike other forms of camouflage, "dazzle" works not by concealing but by baffling the eye, making it difficult to estimate a target's range, speed and direction. Artist Norman Wilkinson, credited with inventing the technique, explained that dazzle was intended primarily to mislead the enemy; each ship's dazzle pattern, realised in monochrome and colour, was unique in order to avoid making classes of ships instantly recognisable to enemy U-boats and aircraft.

The Oceanographic Museum of Monaco presents the monographic exhibition Philippe Pasqua. Borderline. His monumental works, most of which have been tailor-made for this show, will stand alongside the Museum's mythical collection to create a unique dialogue.
In his work Philippe Pasqua experiments with the notion of limits. He flirts with the brink, brushes against boundaries and breaks free of them. Violent and raw, his oeuvre disturbs as much as it fascinates, placing the visitor in a dilemma: to gaze intently or to turn away, a mechanism of defence rather than one of indifference. "Pasqua questions, raises concerns and unsettles his audience, but never leaves unmoved. His work provides the ideal trigger for raising awareness in favour of marine and terrestrial life," explains Robert Calcagno, director of the Oceanographic Museum.

The curiosity of F and J Merino, their encounters with Nice-based artists during the 1960s, and, in particular, their frequent visits to Ben's shop ("Laboratoire 32") would encourage them to develop an interest in contemporary art, which would blossom into a passion.

Through more than 250 artworks, CERAMIX tells the story of ceramic art with a strong focus on the post-war production of artistic ceramics and the contemporary art of Europe, North America and Asia. The artists selected have used the material in a variety of ways: from paintings and sculptures to installations in mixed techniques. The exhibition is presented both chronologically and thematically, and also includes a number of monograph rooms that have been arranged in close cooperation with the artists in question, who include Johan Creten and Klara Kristalova.

The exhibition Antoni MIRALDA MADEINUSA will recreate and document for the first time and in a comprehensive manner the 15 projects made by Antoni Miralda in the United States from 1972 to 1999. Curated by Vicent Todolí and produced by MACBA, the exhibition will be shown in Barcelona from October 22, 2016 to April 9, 2017.
MACBA dedicates a major exhibition to the work of the Catalan artist Antoni Miralda (Terrassa, 1942). With a career spanning five decades, Miralda has turned something as universal as food into a creative universe. Using a non-conformist language, baroque and full of humour, that celebrates the senses and brings art closer to life, he undertakes an ethnological exploration of human behaviour.

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents Francis Bacon: From Picasso to Velázquez, an exhibition of some 80 works including some of the most important and yet least exhibited paintings by this British artist born in Ireland, alongside the works of the classic masters from French and Spanish culture. Portraits, nudes, landscapes, bullfighting… the exhibition offers a new perspective on Bacon's oeuvre by highlighting the influences exerted on his art.
Transgressive in both his life and art, Bacon broke down many barriers that were deeply entrenched at the time, placing human beings in front of a mirror in which we could see ourselves in a raw, violent way. Bacon's nudes tend to feature isolated figures in everyday poses which the painter transformed by twisting their bodies into almost animal-like shapes, thus reinventing the portrait.

Punk is an attitude. An attitude made of rage, speed, noise, incorrectness, nonconformity, denial, opposition and provocation that runs through the 20th century and extends beyond the 1970s, beyond the Anglo-Saxon context and beyond the music scene. An explosion whose effects make punk one of the most influential cultural references of the 20th century.
The purpose of PUNK. Its Traces in Contemporary Art is to examine its influence on contemporary art, establishing a genealogy that reaches to our own time, and, in the words of Greil Marcus in Lipstick Traces, to follow its traces to the present...

From May 12 to August 28, 2016, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is proud to present the Spanish premiere of Eija-Liisa Ahtila's The Annunciation (The Annunciation - Marian Ilmestys), 2010. This will be the seventh work to appear in the Museum's Film & Video Gallery, inaugurated in 2014 and dedicated to video art, video installation, and the moving image.
Eija-Liisa Ahtila (b. 1959, Hämeenlinna, Finland) shot The Annunciation on the snowy Aulanko Nature Reserve in southern Finland during the winter of 2010.
The installation consists of three projections which reenact a well-known passage in the Gospel of Luke (1:26-38) that narrates one of the most important themes in Christian iconography, which is also the central motif of some of the earliest paintings to successfully use perspective.

What do we want from art? Andrea Fraser addresses this question in her work and looks at the motivations of a wide range of cultural agents including artists, collectors, gallerists, patrons and audiences. Developing on site-specific and research-based approaches that emerged with Conceptualism, combined with feminist investigations of subjectivity and desire, her methods are rooted in the psychoanalytic principle that one can only engage structures and relationships in an immediate way, in their performance.

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents Shadows (1977-78) by Andy Warhol, a monumental artwork of 102 large format, silkscreened panels that reflect some of Warhol's explorations with abstraction through his signature palette of bright and cheerful hues, which characterized a large part of his work.
At 50 years old, Andy Warhol, the irreverent Pop Art icon, and chronicler of an era, embarked upon the production of a monumental artwork titled Shadows with the assistance of his entourage at the Factory.
The "shadows" alternate between positive and negative as they march along the walls of the gallery. Despite the apparent embrace of repetition, Warhol's "machine method" is nothing but handmade. A significant and intriguing fact about Shadows is the irreproducibility of its assumed reproduction, a point that problematizes his aesthetic of "plagiarism" and positions Warhol's project as one that is primordially pictorial.

Her projects probe seemingly impenetrable systems, such as the NYPD, the Dutch Secret Service, surveillance systems, and, most recently, the legacy of architect Luis Barragán, and unsettle these forms of power.
Jill Magid. The Proposal June 4-August 21, 2016. Hours: Tuesday-Friday 12-6pm, Saturday-Sunday 11am-5pm.

In just over two months, from June 11, to September 18, 2016, Manifesta 11 European Biennial of Contemporary Art opens its doors in Zurich under the title What People Do for Money: Some Joint Ventures. Preparations for the international art exhibition are now in full motion: the new productions, that are arising between international artists and Zurich professionals of other professions, are getting more and more concrete. What do I do for money? Do I earn enough to survive? Human working conditions are the focus of the curatorial concept drawn up by German artist Christian Jankowski for Manifesta 11. In this 11th edition of Manifesta, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art, a total of about 250 existing and 30 newly commissioned works will be presented in more than 35 venues all over the city of Zurich for more than 100 days.
