Isa Genzken: Geldbilder
LONDON, ENGLAND  •  Hauser & Wirth  •  26 March - 16 May 2015
In a new series of paintings unveiled at Hauser & Wirth London, Isa Genzken employs motifs from the language of capitalism to explore themes of self- and social-examination. Since the 1970s, Genzken’s diverse practice has encompassed sculpture, photography, found-object installation, drawing and painting. Her work borrows from the aesthetics of Minimalism, punk culture and assemblage art to confront the conditions of human experience in contemporary society and the uneasy social climate of capitalism.

Pangaea III: New Art From Africa and Latin America
LONDON, ENGLAND  •  Saatchi Gallery  •  11 March - 6 September 2015

Taking its title from the prehistoric landmass that conjoined Africa and Latin America, this major survey reunites the two former sister continents by bringing together the work of 16 of their contemporary artists. The exhibition explores the parallels between their distinctly diverse cultures and creative practices, as they begin to receive recognition in the increasingly globalised art world. Years of colonial rule, rapid urban expansion, migration and political and economic unrest remain subjects for many of the artists.

Pangaea III: New Art From Africa and Latin America features work by Aboudia, Dawit Abebe, Eduardo Berliner, Jean-François Boclé, Armand Boua, Pia Camil,  Alida Cervantes, Virginia Chihota, Alexandre da Cunha, Federico Herrero, Diego Mendoza Imbachi, Eddy Ilunga Kamuanga, Hamid El Kanbouhi, Ibrahim Mahama 
Jorge Mayet, Boris Nzebo, Alejandro Ospina, Ephrem Solomon, Mikhael Subotzky

Inventing Impressionism
LONDON, ENGLAND  •  The National Gallery  •  4 March - 31 May 2015

Paul Durand-Ruel, an entrepreneurial art dealer from Paris, discovered a group of young artists – including Monet, Degas, Manet, Renoir, Pissarro and Sisley – and gambled.

Realising the fashionable potential of their derided ‘impressions’ of urban and suburban life, Durand-Ruel dedicated the rest of his life to building an audience for their work – creating the modern art market in the process.

Such was his perseverance, Durand-Ruel nearly bankrupted himself twice, before successfully globalising his operation with outposts in London, Brussels and New York, and establishing the one-man show as the international norm for exhibitions.

Marlene Dumas: <EM>Rejects,</EM> 1994
Marlene Dumas: Rejects, 1994
Marlene Dumas: The Image as Burden
LONDON, ENGLAND  •  Tate Modern  •  5 February - 10 May 2015

South African artist Marlene Dumas is one of the most prominent painters working today. Her intense, psychologically charged works explore themes of sexuality, love, death and shame, often referencing art history, popular culture and current affairs.

‘Secondhand images’, she has said, ‘can generate first-hand emotions.’ Dumas never paints directly from life, yet life in all its complexity is right there on the canvas. Her subjects are drawn from both public and personal references and include her daughter and herself, as well as recognisable faces such as Amy Winehouse, Naomi Campbell, Princess Diana, even Osama bin Laden. The results are often intimate and at times controversial, where politics become erotic and portraits become political. She plays with the imagination of her viewers, their preconceptions and fears.

Born in 1953 in Cape Town, South Africa, Dumas moved to the Netherlands in 1976, where she came to prominence in the mid-1980s. This large-scale survey is the most significant exhibition of her work ever to be held in Europe, charting her career from early works, through seminal paintings to new works on paper.

The title of the exhibition is taken from The Image as Burden 1993, a small painting depicting one figure carrying another. As with many of Dumas’s works, her choice of title deeply affects our interpretation of the work. It hints at the sense of responsibility faced by the artist in choosing to create an image that can translate ideas about painting and the position of the artist
