In November 2022, the Musée des beaux-arts de La Chaux-de-Fonds will organize a monographic exhibition dedicated to the artist Nina Childress. This exhibition offers an incursion into the artist’s work by evoking the body through one of its parts, a part particularly linked to the representation of the self: the hair. The artist applies all the variety of her painting to it.
Through the figures of emblematic spies, from Mata Hari to Carrie Mathison, and from OSS117 to Edward Snowden, this exhibition explores a new history of the relationship between cinema and espionage. It establishes as a starting point a mirror game between the two disciplines, practices par excellence involving capture, simulacrum and dissimulation.
The exhibition will travel to the CaixaForum in Madrid (from October 29, 2023 to June 29, 2023) and in Barcelona (from March 31, 2023 to November 29, 2024).
This autumn, The Civic, Barnsley are delighted to be hosting the touring exhibition Warning Graphic Content, from Modern Institute, Glasgow and Art : Concept , Paris. The exhibition brings together all of Jeremy Deller’s print and poster works from 1993-2021.
The exhibition serves as a retrospective and chronological account of Deller’s thinking, a visual manifestation of his ongoing – and shifting – interests and advocacy. Aligning the poetic with the polemical, Deller’s poster and billboard works have increasingly taken on a more urgent even political dimension throughout the years.
