Emotional vulnerability, a search for personal identity and physical change are all key characteristics of adolescence. Contemporary photographers like Paul Graham, Rineke Dijkstra, Thomas Struth and Thomas Ruff create portraits that attempt to convey the transition to adulthood. In the 1990s, they captured the euphoria of adolescents at the end of an era. The End of an Age in the Vincent Award Room features a selection of their images.

Does documentary photography show a true picture of the world? Do portrait photographs capture a person’s identity? Today pictures are shared in vast numbers on social media. This exhibition explores how photography has pictured people from the 19th century to the present.

The exhibition sheds light on three key periods in the documentary genre: 1880s social documentary, 1960s street photography, and 1990s everyday documentary.

In the portrait genre, “Snap” shows contemporary photography from the 1990s through to 2016. The exhibition explores how identity and political standpoints are conveyed and how portrait and documentary photography interweave to create new narratives about the times in which we live.

“Snap” presents more than 100 photographs – both from the collection and loaned in for the occasion – by thirty acclaimed Norwegian and international photographers.

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.''

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.

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).

In honor of Dijkstra, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, who has followed her work since the 1990s and in 2005 mounted an international traveling survey, presents Rineke Dijkstra: An Ode, a snapshot of the artist’s photographic and video work ranging from 1994 to the present. The exhibition both includes iconic photographic works and highlights her early video work and her return to the medium in recent years. The exhibition also premieres three works that have never been displayed in the Netherlands.

Rineke Dijkstra: An Ode totals 21 photographs and four videos. The exhibition is primarily comprised of the Stedelijk Museum’s extensive holdings of Dijkstra’s work, supplemented with loans from the artist. Shown for the first time in the Netherlands are Marianna [The Fairy Doll], 2014; Marianna and Sasha, Kingisepp, Russia, November 2 2014, 2014; and Odessa, Ukraine, August 6 1993, 1993.

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.«
