Doubles, Dobros, Pliegues, Pares, Twins, Mitades (group show)
The Warehouse, Dallas
10 July - 29 December 2017

In the short story William Wilson, Edgar Allan Poe presents a sinister plot: the tale of a character who, from his childhood, experiences the apparition of a figure who in everything resembles and haunts him with similitude and repetition – until he turns out to be himself. It is the doppelgänger, or double, a recurring figure in literature (from Dostoyevsky to Borges and Wilde) and in all the arts. The very act of representing – oneself or the other – can be understood as a gesture of creation of parallel realities, thus doubles to those in which we live. The exhibition DOUBLES, DOBROS, PLIEGUES, PARES, TWINS, MITADES takes this literary figure as a starting point to create an inventory of situations in which otherness and duplication/repetition are manifested in works from The Rachofsky Collection, The Rose Collection, The Collection of Marguerite Steed Hoffman, and the Dallas Museum of Art, among others, assuming diverse configurations: from forms of representation that occur through replicas, shadowing, and mirroring to logical-formal exercises that are expressed by the use of halves and doubles.

The Hall Art Foundation is pleased to announce a group exhibition, Für Barbara, to be held at its Schloss Derneburg location in honor of recently deceased gallerist Barbara Weiss. A lifelong advocate for women in the arts, Weiss was also a friend of the Hall's and inspired the inclusion of many works by female artists in the Hall and Hall Art Foundation collections. The exhibition, curated by Leo Koenig, includes over 90 paintings, sculptures, photographs, installations, works on paper and videos by an international and multi-generational roster of female artists dating from the 1950s to 2017.

''In and beyond her gallery, Barbara advocated for women of all generations and in all positions in the arts. Her calm resolve and unruffled tenacity never overshadowed the self-determination of her artists, or eclipsed the autonomy of their work. With this exhibition, we celebrate a woman who subtly challenged the status quo by introducing ideas that would have been deemed revolutionary were they presented by any other person. The radical was an everyday occurrence with Barbara, because she presented it as fundamental.''

The One And The Many (solo show)

In her large photographs and films, Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra manages to capture people who have stopped somewhere – in a park, on a beach, at a party, in life – so that they are present to an astonishing degree, right there in that very moment.

Rineke Dijkstra (b. 1959) is typically interested in transitions, the stages of life when we are on the way to becoming ourselves plus something else. Adolecents who stand somewhat insecure in swimsuits on the beach. The dancer who is fully immersed in music at a club. The young person who has put on a military uniform. The woman who has just given birth. . .

There are no spectacular incidents with Dijkstra, but precisely for that reason, when we see her images, we can relive lost moments and exchange glances with our own history: We also encounter ourselves here! This exhibition is the first specific presentation of Dijkstras artwork in a Scandinavian context.

Art Lesson (group show)
Museo Thyssen Bornemisza, Madrid
7 November 2017 - 18 February 2018

The museum will be completing the exhibition programme organised to mark its 25th Anniversary by inviting visitors to reflect on the educational role of museums in society today through an innovative project curated by the Education Department. “Art Lesson” will consist of various activities that will take place during the time the exhibition is open to the public and will occupy different spaces in the museum. The project has been conceived as an organic entity which will take shape over time and will make the museum particularly dynamic while it is taking place.

An exhibition featuring the work of contemporary artists such as Antoni Muntadas, Cinthia Marcelle, Dennis Adams, Eva Kot’átková, Dora Garcia, Pavel Kogan, Erwin Wurm, Rineke Djikstra and Pipilotti Rist will look at the issues of where knowledge lies and the museum as a personal experience, aiming to transform the spectator’s experience and place within the museum. For the first time, the museum will also become a space for creation through three artist’s residence grants that will allow the recipients to work alongside the Education Department team during both the preparatory stage and the exhibition itself. This initiative aims to establish links between cutting-edge artistic creation and the museum and between its works and the activities of its educators.

Ruth Drawing Picasso, Tate Liverpool, UK, 2009 (solo show)

Rineke Dijkstra’s realisation of Ruth Drawing Picasso, Tate Liverpool, UK, 2009 brings us back to the surprising fact that Guernica (a kind of political manifesto) was exported to Britain by Roland Penrose and E.L.T. Mesens. That work provoked such an effect on a select British public that we can consider it the starting point of surrealism in the UK; it also deeply influenced important artists such as Henry Moore, Francis Bacon and even David Hockney.

The Museu Picasso presents the work of Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra in its new space dedicated to contemporary art. This emblematic videowork confronts the viewer with Ruth – a girl who, during her visit together with her schoolmates to Tate Liverpool, was confronted with Picasso’s painting Weeping Woman.

It’s a cool observation, subjective but sensitive at the same time, analysing the young girl’s reaction when viewing and copying this artwork. Picasso’s piece is directly related to one of the main figures of his masterpiece Guernica (1937).

Hasselblad Award 2017
Hasselblad Foundation Center, Gothenburg
11 October 2017 - January 2018

A symposium will be held on October 10 in honor of Rineke Dijkstra, followed by the opening of an exhibition of her work at the Hasselblad Center, as well as the launch of the book Rineke Dijkstra – Hasselblad Award 2017.

The Foundation’s citation regarding the Hasselblad Award Winner 2017, Rineke Dijkstra:

»Rineke Dijkstra is one of the most significant contemporary artists working in photographic portraiture. Her large-scale photographs focus on the thema-tics of identity, typically capturing her subjects at moments of transition or vulnerability. Working in series, Rineke Dijkstra’s images recall the visual acuity of seventeenth-century Dutch portraiture, offering intimate portrayals of her sitters whilst also suggesting the situated aspects of their being. Rineke Dijkstra’s investigations in portraiture also include video. Her fixed-camera video studies yield images that appear to be moving photographs, revolutionizing our understanding of the fluid boundary between the still and moving image.«
