The prestigious Jewish Museum in New York has acquired Profile, a film installation by Candice Breitz first shown at the 57th Venice Biennale. Profile features ten prominent artists who introduce themselves as Breitz, blurring personal and shared biographical details to create a composite self-portrait that problematises the idea of a single person representing a diverse nation. The film is being screened as part of the museum’s ongoing exhibition, Scenes from the Collection, which brings together work that affirms ‘universal values that are shared among people of all faiths and backgrounds’.

Hank Willis Thomas’ Black Survival Guide: or How to Live Through a Police Riot is a series of 13 large-scale retroreflective screen prints commissioned by the Delaware Art Museum for a solo exhibition titled after the work (14 July – 30 September). For the series, Thomas collaged material drawn from the Delaware Historical Society with photographs taken of the 1868 National Guard occupation of Wilmington. The reflective surface of the prints make parts of the work only visible through the use of a torch – a conceptual conceit that refers to the searching required to uncover the unknown stories of our collective past.

Tabita Rezaire included on a curatorial project in Berlin

Rezaire participates in a new curatorial project, titled LUCKY and hosted by the Neue Gesellschaft fur Bildende Kunst, which invites queer cultural agents to unveil power structures shrouded in myth and illusion of luck (7 July – 2 September). As such, the curatorial project’s exhibition, and its accompanying performance event series, reacts to luck as a cultural myth that normalises privilege. Masked as luck, white supremacy and patriarchy weave narratives that dull movements of resistance and perpetuate the status quo.

Haroon Gunn-Salie on Frieze Sculpture 2018

Haroon Gunn-Salie’s sculptural memorial Senzenina has been selected for Frieze Sculpture, which opens in London’s Regent’s Park (5 July – 8 October). The work depicts 17 life-sized, hunched figures, modelled after the striking mine workers slain at Marikana in one of the most lethal uses of force by South African security forces against civilians since the 1960s. The work debuted earlier this year at the New Museum Triennial in New York. In an interview with the Cape Times, Gunn-Salie said that taking Senzenina to London is a crucial step given that the city is home to the head offices of Lonmin, the Marikana platinum mine operators. “This is an opportunity to take the unresolved issues to their doorstep,” said Gunn-Salie, “and it’s the next step of mobilisation, I believe.”

Kentridge’s ‘More Sweetly Play the Dance’ on exhibition in Miami

William Kentridge’s eight-channel video installation, titled More Sweetly Play the Dance is on exhibition at the Miami Dade College Museum of Art and Design in Florida (19 May – 30 September). Hosted in Freedom Tower, the exhibition – William Kentridge: More Sweetly Play the Dance – showcases one of the artist’s most immersive and performative video artworks to date. Serving as an update of the danse macabre, Kentridge’s artwork and parade of death includes a brass band in the lead; followed by people carrying possessions or shrouded bodies, priests, patients dragging their IV drips, skeletons, and a live ballerina who wears a military uniform and carries a rifle. In combining elements of medieval allegory with evocations of recent sights such as Syrian refugees and bodies felled by Ebola, Kentridge presents a never-ending carnivalesque reminder of people’s own mortality that is by turns morbid, chilling, comic, and political. However, in the artist’s hands, the triumph of death ultimately becomes a celebration of resilience and life.

mounir fatmi on group exhibition in Poland

mounir fatmi participates in a group exhibition, titled Motherland in Art, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Poland (27 April – 30 September). According to the exhibition’s curatorial statement, ‘Contemporary artists have long adopted the model of a global motherland. They communicate in the global language of images and move between living in different countries with ease, in each finding fodder for their imagination… Their works become all the richer for acquiring the added flavour of the new “motherlands”’. In asking the participating artists what the ‘motherland’ might mean to them, the exhibition raises pertinent concerns about the possibilities and troubles associated with the dream of a universal nation state.

First museum show in the UK for Lisa Brice

Lisa Brice has her first solo institutional exhibition in the United Kingdom with Art Now: Lisa Brice at Tate Britain in London (26 April – 27 August). In this presentation Brice expands her recent use of a near single colour palette to include dynamic reds and deep greens to create large-scale paintings which address the art-historical tradition of the female nude. Shown alongside sketches, drawings and studies, her paintings reference art history with nods to works by historical painters such as Degas, Manet, Picasso and Vallooton. As Tate’s press release states, ‘Brice reverses the traditional portrayal of passive female figures by male artists for male viewers and returns the power to the women involved’.

Works by William Kentridge (in collaboration with Margueritte Stephens) and Hank Willis Thomas are included on the Boca Raton Museum of Art’s current group exhibition, titled Nomadic Murals: Contemporary Tapestries (24 April – 21 October).

From Reubens to Picasso, the tapestry has played a significant and important role in the development of fine art. The exhibition’s title is borrowed from from an essay about tapestry by the modernist architect Le Corbusier.

Work by Tracey Rose is featured on the Linda Pace Foundation’s group exhibition, Reclaimed, showcasing 25 monochromatic works by some of the most influential contemporary female artists working today (9 March – 26 January). As its title implies, the exhibition addresses the concept of ownership – both literally and figuratively – and the notion of “reclaiming” what belongs to a person and their communities, from their lands and governments to their physical bodies and basic human rights. Drawn from the Foundation’s collection, the exhibition serves as a departure from the institution’s typical spotlight on experimental and new media works, and provides insight into the depth and variedness of its permanent collection.
