Araki Ojo Shashu: Photography for the Afterlife: Alluring Hell
AMSTERDAM  •  Foam Photography Museum  •  19 December 2014 - 11 March 2015
 

Araki Ojo Shashu - Photography for the Afterlife: Alluring Hell gives a distinct reflection on the oeuvre of the Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki (Tokyo, 1940). The extensive exhibition comprises both his notorious early work, as well as his very recent series.

The past months, the 74-year-old Araki has been working on stylized photographs of flowers and dolls. Also, he has rediscovered a series of erotic black-and-white prints and overpainted them. These recent series set the tone of the exhibition; they mirror Araki's acceptance of, as well as his resistance to decline.

The Secret of Dresden – From Rembrandt to Canaletto
GRONINGEN,  •  Groningen Museum  •  13 December 2014 - 25 May 2015
 

The collections in Dresden form one of the best-kept secrets of European art. At the time, the art compilations amassed by Prince-Electors of Saxony in the eighteenth century belonged to the most beautiful and renowned collections in Europe. The Secret of Dresden – From Rembrandt to Canaletto displays a selection from the impressive collection of paintings that nowadays constitute the core of the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister in Dresden. There are masterpieces such as the Rembrandt’s Abduction of Ganymede (1635), as well as works by painters who were once considered to be masters but have now been (almost) forgotten.

Saxony was already one of the most prosperous German states when Prince-Elector August the Strong managed to acquire the kingship of Poland in 1697. He underlined his new status among the royal courts of Europe by starting up ambitious building projects and initiating an impressive art collection that could rival those of the major royal collections of that period. After his death, his collecting activities were continued by his son August III until deep into the eighteenth century.

In addition to Groningen, this exhibition will also be on display in Munich and Vienna.
