WALKER EVANS

April 26, 2017 - August 14, 2017
Centre Pompidou, Place Georges-Pompidou
Paris, 75004 France

Walker Evans (1903-1975) was one of the most important of twentieth-century American photographers. His photographs of the Depression years of the 1930s, his assignments for Fortune magazine in the 1940s and 1950s, and his “documentary style” influenced generations of photographers and artists. His attention to everyday details and the commonplace urban scene did much to define the visual image of 20th-century American culture. Some of his photographs have become iconic. Conceived as a retrospective of Evans’s work as a whole,…

May 6, 2017 - August 27, 2017
Kunsthaus Bregenz, Karl-Tizian-Platz
Bregenz, 6900 Austria

They are monsters stiffened in rigor mortis. That is the colossally scaled sculptures, such as a 28 meter whale of almost unimaginable mass sited in a forest in Patagonia, for which the Argentinian artist Adrián Villar Rojas (*1980, Rosario, Argentina) has become well- known. Leaves falling from trees in the harsh autumn weather have transformed the sculpture into a soft russet color. The scarred aquatic fugitive lying in an abandoned forest creates a shocking impression, its loss of orientation and…

Milan, 20126
+ Google Map

“Ambienti/Environments” is focused on Lucio Fontana’s pioneering work in the realm of installation art, with a selection of his seminal Ambienti spaziali—seen together for the first time—that highlights the farsighted, innovative genius of this twentieth-century master. The Ambienti spaziali (“Spatial Environments”), rooms and corridors that the artist began to conceive and design in the late 1940s, were almost always destroyed once the exhibition was over; they are Fontana’s most experimental yet least-known works, due to their ephemeral nature. Some of…
