HARD TO PICTURE

A TRIBUTE TO AD REINHARDT

17/06/2017 - 28/01/2018

In tandem with his writings on art and his pictorial praxis, which would culminate in the radical and emblematic works which his monochrome paintings turned out to be, in the 1930s Ad Reinhardt developed an activity as an illustrator, and published caustically witty drawings in the American press. Through a broad selection of illustrations and drawings, the exhibition underscores the artist’s great freedom of tone and commitment as much with regard to political and social issues as to art, and abstract art in particular.

FLATLAND / ABSTRACTIONS NARRATIVES #2

07/10/2017 - 02/04/2018

Borrowing its title from a book written in 1884 by Edwin A. Abbott, where the leading characters are geometric forms, and the narrator, a Square, describes his discovery of a three-dimensional world, this group show deals with the way in which, from the 1960s on, artists have drawn inspiration from the formal abstract vocabularies which ran through the 20th century, infiltrating them with narratives. Flatland / Abstractions narratives #2 brings together some thirty artists from different generations.

SU-MEI TSE

NESTED

07/10/2017 - 02/04/2018

Marked by her cosmopolitan origins, between Europe and Asia, and by her interest in the world’s acoustic dimension, Su-Mei Tse’s praxis is permeated by issues such as time, memory, rhythm, and language. Assuming the most varied of forms – sculptures, videos, photographs, installations –, her works invariably create shifts between different fields.

JOÃO PENALVA

03/03/2018 - 16/09/2018

The Portuguese artist João Penalva creates poetic fictions, that stimulate our imagination. His visual tales, whether of an intimate character or large staged installations, combine painting, photography, video and documents; image, text and sound.

NO MAN’S LAND

NATURAL SPACES, TESTING GROUNDS

27/04/2018 - 09/09/2018

Sanctuarization is one of the responses to ecological concerns about natural territories: the desired solution as such, but also one which results from effects induced by military or political situations.

KATINKA BOCK

SMOG / TOMORROW’S SCULPTURE

27/04/2018 - 02/09/2018

Folding, wrapping, moulding, rubbing, balancing, falling... Katinka Bock's sculptures are made from materials such as clay, stone, wood, copper, and bronze and result from simple gestures that are directly legible in the form of the artwork.

SUSUMU SHINGU

SPACESHIP

17/05/2018 - 06/01/2019

Susumu Shingu’s art could not exist without the wind. His elegant sculptures are animated by the slightest breath and thereby reveal the intangible but omnipresent nature of air.

JEFF WALL

APPEARANCE

05/10/2018 - 06/01/2019

Since the late 1970s, Jeff Wall, a major art figure in recent decades, has been developing an oeuvre which has greatly changed the way we look at the photographic medium. By including it within a pictorial tradition and thinking about its relations to the other arts – painting, first and foremost, but also film, literature and theatre –, he has re-defined its essence and opened up a whole avenue of possibilities. This major exhibition brings together some thirty works by the artist, both recent and older.
