Egon Schiele

Gustav Klimt & Egon Schiele / 1918 Centenary

Over the century, the works of Klimt and Schiele have come to define the fertile creativity that marked the so-called “joyous apocalypse,” an apt term used to connote the waning days of Habsburg rule. On view through September 3, 2018 at Neue Galerie in New York.

 

Alice Rohrwacher / The Wonders

The Female Gaze

Few jobs in cinema have been as historically closed to women as that of cinematographer. Despite this low representation, trailblazing women have left their mark through extraordinary artistry. The festival closed yesterday, August 9, 2018 but you can still discover titles and programs sure to be back. Presented by Film Society Lincoln Center.

Becoming American

It is exactly the uneasy imaginary of becoming American that novelist and essayist James Baldwin took up in his 1959 meditation, “The Discovery of What It Means to Be an American.” –Fionn Meade. Artists Cat Clifford, Jasper Johns, Adrian Piper, and Brian Jungen among others will be presented. Through September 30, 2018. Various participating venues in and around Seattle, organized by Cefalonia.

 

Senta Simond

Senta Simond / Rayon Vert

Senta Simond’s work is an intimate approach to the female body and portraiture. Her photographs feature a circle of acquaintances and respond to existing, and often clichéd, representation of femininity. At Foam, opening September 7 and on view through October 18, 2018.

 

John Nixon

John Nixon / Selected Paintings

Form + line, color + design, texture + materiality, flatness + relief, minimalism + maximalism sit alongside each other in this exhibition to form a visual faktura.John Nixon. Through August 18, 2018 at Anna Schwartz Gallery.

Emma Portner / Femme Debout

Responding to the current exhibit of Francis Bacon and Alberto Giacometti at Fondation Beyeler, Emma Portner’s complex and delicate choreography draws on the grotesque, the artificial, and extreme emotionality, her extraordinary performances leaving her audiences breathless. Her performance film Femme Debout premiered yesterday August 9, 2018; Bacon / Giacometti on view through September 2, 2018 at Fondation Beyeler.
