Gerhard Richter: Pictures / Series
BASEL  •  Fondation Beyeler  •  18 May - 7 September 2014
 

"I do not obey any intention, system or trend; I have no programme, style or pretention. I love uncertainty, infinity and permanent insecurity."

The exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler centers on German artist Gerhard Richter's (born in Dresden in 1932, now based in Cologne) series, cycles, and interior spaces. A counterpoint to these is formed by a number of single works, many of which have achieved iconic status. Some hundred pictures are on show — portraits, still-lifes, landscapes, abstract images — along with two glass objects and sixty-four overpainted photographs. The selection encompasses the major periods in Richter’s career since 1966, including recent works not yet seen in public.

Cindy Sherman: Untitled Horrors
ZURICH  •  Kunsthaus  •  6 June - 14 September 2014
 
At the heart of the retrospective Cindy Sherman – Untitled Horrors is the grotesque, the gruesomely shocking in her work, from the earliest days through to most recent times.
Her first works date from 1975. She created them at home, using an external shutter release. Even at this stage, she was already dramatizing different (gender) roles and constantly changing identities.
