Candice Breitz and Hank Willis Thomas on major exhibition celebrating ‘the king of pop’ in London

Work by Breitz and Thomas feature on the National Portrait Gallery’s exhibition, Michael Jackson: On the Wall, commemorating the contribution of Michael Jackson to popular and contemporary visual culture (28 June – 21 October). Taking an interesting angle on celebrating the life of Jackson, the exhibition explores how the singer inspired some of the leading names in contemporary art. Curated by Dr Nicholas Cullinan, this major new exhibition spans several generations of artists who each work across a diverse range of media. The exhibition is scheduled to travel to multiple art institutions including The Grand Palais and Espoo Museum of Modern Art, but opens at the National Portrait Gallery to coincide with what would have been Jackson’s 60th birthday.

Candice Breitz’s ‘Love Story’ travels to various museums around the world

Breitz’s seven-channel video installation Love Story continues its travels around the globe. Having moved from Venice to Melbourne, and on to South Africa, the video now features at the Arken Museum of Modern Art in Denmark (8 March – 9 September), as well as the Boston Museum of Fine Arts (31 March – 25 June) and Norway’s Stavanger Art Museum (6 April – 27 May).

Candice Breitz on an exhibition looking at the representation of women

Work by Candice Breitz is included on the Kunst Museum Winterthur’s group exhibition, Women: Images of women through the centuries, in Switzerland (24 February – 17 June). The artworks on the exhibition consider how the images and depictions of women in western art have often created according to stereotypical ideas, in which the image of the woman has often been the image of the male creator and his idea of the woman. Curated by Konrad Bitterli and Andrea Lutz, the exhibition offers a distinctive counter to these representations by showcasing decisive contributions made by contemporary women artists which present renewed ideas on the image of women and their representation within the art canon.
