Posted 8/15/16
In 2009, Cheim & Read hung the provocative group show The Female Gaze: Women Look at Women, which showcased women artists taking control of their own images. In an encore presentation this summer, women artists turn their gaze this time toward men, reversing one of art’s most long-standing power structures. The Female Gaze Part II: Women Look at Men brings together work from 32 artists, all utilizing the subject of men, or the male body, as a way to confront, or even turn the tables on the M... [more]

Marlene Dumas at Stedelijk Museum September 6th, 2014 - January 4th, 2015
Posted 9/10/14
Since its long anticipated reopening in September 2012 the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam has served up some fine shows: The Mike Kelley retrospective was, if somewhat airtight, quite comprehensive, and Jeff Wall’s Tableaux Pictures Photographs 1996-2013 could easily compete with the grand overview nine years ago at Tate Modern. But with Marlene Dumas: The Image as Burden the museum has hit a new high point. The retrospective of the nation’s best-known painter is by far the best exhibiti... [more]

Posted 3/16/13
Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago Curator Naomi Beckwith’s latest exhibition, Color Bind: The MCA Collection in Black and White, currently on view through April 28, is a dynamic and engaging mix of works from the MCA’s collection. Conceived from the examination of the formal, conceptual and sociopolitical ideas associated with the colors of black and white, the exhibition provides viewers with the opportunity to reflect upon their own attitudes toward and notions of these contrapositive shades....

Posted 1/16/12
Museum De Paviljoens in Almere is currently showing the third exhibition in a series called De Nederlandse Identiteit? (The Dutch Identity?) called De Kracht van Heden (The Power of Present). These big, significant titles generate high expectations. According to the museum, every show within the Dutch Identity project offers a specific perspective on contemporary Dutch art and the social, cultural and geographic context it comes from. Issues like migration, interculturality, new towns, and the post-co... [more]

Marlene Dumas at Frith Street Gallery   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
by
Marlene Dumas at Frith Street Gallery, Golden Square October 14th, 2011 - November 26th, 2011
Posted 10/30/11
Marlene Dumas’s first show in London for seven years is dominated by five large paintings of the Crucifixion. The show draws its title from the despairing utterance of the dying Christ, “My God, my God, why has thou forsaken me?” Dumas aligns herself with several major artists from recent decades – Picasso, Bacon, Sutherland et al – who have addressed the Crucifixion as both an art-historical trope and a human spectre of violence and suffering. In each painting, Dumas seems to hover between litera... [more]

Measuring Graves   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Marlene Dumas at MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) at Grand Ave. June 22nd, 2008 - September 22nd, 2008
Posted 6/23/08
Marlene Dumas’ truly haunting show, Measuring Your Own Grave at MOCA, spans work she has made over the last 30 years. As specific as Dumas’ works are to her personal experiences they can be loosely interpreted and feel relatable. The watercolors and paintings depict people, from children to strippers to others that resemble detainees from the Iraq war. Even when standing and posing, the figures usually look ill (of body or mind) and sometimes dead. The show explores the most basi... [more]
