'If you shoot a bullet in a vacuum, will it keep travelling forever?' - Emily Wardill M HKA has invited British video and performance artist Emily Wardill to make a selection of works from the collection and to show two of her own films, The Diamond (Descartes's Daughter) and Game Keepers without Game. Words and voices are prominent in the films, but much less so in the selected works, which demonstrate other ways of seeing and understanding. The subtitle of this summer’s collection presentation is quoted... [more]

This year sees the first ‘Mind the Book’, the successor to ‘Het Andere Boek’, with a focus on ‘the world’. In this connection, a number of Belgian artists invited by Jef Lambrecht, including Ria Pacquée, Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven, Charif Benhelima and Guillaume Bijl, will be showing a work on the theme of ‘the Orient’ at the M HKA. The works from the collection shown with them are by artists from ‘the East’ in the broadest sense of the term: the Caucasus, India, China, Iraq, Egypt etc. (Image: Koen van den Broek, Blue Eas...

Taking inspiration from Emily Dickenson’s poem of the same name, “The House Without the Door” considers the idea of home as emotionally complicated rather than safe, secure and comforting. Eighteen artists including Mamma Andersson, Louise Bourgeois, Philip-Lorca di Corcia, Luc Tuymans, and Rachel Whiteread use painting, sculpture, installation, and photography to examine the multiple meanings of home with the understanding that home is not only where the heart is, or where comfort and familiar...

On the way home from a research trip to Germany, I got off the Thalys in Brussels to visit the Luc Tuymans exhibition in its final days of its two-year world circuit. I have always been dismissive of Tuymans, convinced that he does nothing that hasn't been done before by better, more reputed artists. I had concluded the work was derivative – before I had even seen it in any substantial form. How wrong I was! Although Tuymans' brush barely appears to have touched the canvas, this is painting tha... [more]

Luc Tuymans’ painting of the bespectacled and smiling man could be anyone; he looks like your best friend’s dad from the old photos in the den.  Included in the Luc Tuymans retrospective currently on view at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the man seen in The Heritage VI is hopefully not your best friend’s dad.  Like the buried history that Tuymans consistently paints, The Heritage VI is actually a very particular person: Joseph Milteer, KKK member, right-wing extremist, and a possib...

Hauntology is essentially the science of spooking. Jacques Derrida first coined the word in 1993 in the book Spectres of Marx. He used the term to illustrate how communism’s failed Utopian ideals haunt capitalist society in a way that not only upsets the easy progression of time, but also accommodates a radical critique of the present. In more apolitical terms, the “persistence of a present past” also seems so fundamental to the concept of a museum, the cannon of art history, and th... [more]

Not the catchiest title perhaps, but Kupferstichkabinett is certainly a memorable show.  Referring to the collections of the German aristocracy which in turn lead to the more accessible print and drawing rooms in museums, this show draws on the past to prove that drawing is very much alive and kicking in contemporary art. Set up like a museum, with works densely hung on dark green walls, the show turns the White Cube into a museum of modern drawing, exploring its pivotal role in the pra... [more]

Luminous in its flatness, the Luc Tuymans mid-career survey at SFMoMA brings together an impressive array of works, expertly selected by co-curators Madeleine Grynsztejn and Helen Molesworth from his prolific output of over 500 paintings. The second leg of the tour, which debuted at the Wexner Center last fall, is also its sole West Coast engagement. The show unfolds in no-nonsense chronological order, its only ostentatious flourish: re-creating the original install of key bodi... [more]
