For the first time, a joint exhibition brings together the work of the renowned Austrian artist Maria Lassnig (b. 1919, Carinthia, Austria, d. 2014, Vienna, Austria) and the ground-breaking US artist Cindy Sherman (b. 1954, Glenn Ridge, New Jersey) at Hauser & Wirth St. Moritz.
2019 saw a returned interest in the ancient art of cameo jewellery. Wartski’s held a exhibition of cameo’s by Europe’s greatest gem engravers and Liz Swig, founder of LizWorks, unveiled of a breathtakingly modern interpretation of the ancient medium by artists Catherine Opie and Cindy Sherman at the Venice Biennale.
The National Portrait Gallery’s mixture of history, people and art can is currently at its strongest. The pay-for exhibition, of Cindy Sherman, is a convincing presentation of 40 years of self-images which includes some fascinating rarely-seen early works and new-to-Britain late works as well as her most seminal series, including all 70 ‘screen tests’.
DRAG: Self-portraits and Body Politics ?is the first institutional exhibition to expand on the traditional representations of drag, involving drag queens, drag kings and bio drags from different generations and backgrounds.
I really hated this – Deller’s pseudo-inclusive schtick really riles me because it’s the same old self-serving art cliques who benefit from his success and ‘the people’ who he seems so keen to represent don’t really stand to gain a thing.
