The two-artist exhibition The Day I Never Met You at Galerie Kornfeld, Berlin brings together landscapes in spectacular color and pinpoint detail. The explosive color and dramatic brushwork of Georgian painter Natela Iankoshvili and the painstaking detail and anti-natural black and white of British artist AlexanderAdams form a startling complementary pairing for the first time at the gallery. Bringing together two artists who have never had a chance to meet in person but over the years have continued to communicate through their work.

    “What is your name?” “Where are you from?” “How did you end up here?” “Can you feel it?” “Does it hurt?” With these and other questions, the American artist Adam Pendleton’s solo exhibition at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum sets up an elaborate call-and-response network that articulates a sense of history as fragmented poetics. The exhibition will showcase a polyvocal assemblage of new and recent paintings, drawings, and video portraits that together reveal Pendleton’s interest in creating a conversation between mediums, as well as his belief in abstraction’s capacity to destabilize and disrupt.
