Förg in Venice, Palazzo Contarini Polignac, Venice
May 11 - August 23, 2019
The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) is collaborating with the artist estate on an exhibition of works by Günther Förg at the historic Palazzo Contarini Polignac in Venice. It follows on from the survey show, Günther Förg: A Fragile Beauty, which took place in Dallas in 2008, and brings together aver 30 pieces from the artist’s multidisciplinary practice- focusing on his paintings and lesser known sculptural work- to reflect on the expansive and intuitive methods of this manifold, intellectual artist.

58th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia, 'May You Live In Interesting Times', curated by Ralph Rugoff
Ryoji Ikeda and George Condo are included in the 58th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia, May You Live in Interesting Times, curated by Ralph Rugoff.
May 11 - November 24, 2019
The title of the exhibition is a phrase of English invention that has long been mistakenly cited as an ancient Chinese curse that invokes periods of uncertainty, crisis and turmoil; "interesting times", exactly as the ones we live in today.
The 58th Exhibition is curated by Ralph Rugoff, currently the director of the Hayward Gallery in London. Between 1985 and 2002 he wrote art and cultural criticism for numerous periodicals, publishing widely in art magazines as well as newspapers, and published a collection of essays, Circus Americanus (1995). During the same period he began working as an independent curator.
* Ryoji Ikeda's participation in Venice is supported by Audemars Piguet, The Vinyl Factory and Institut Français.

Picasso - Blue and Rose periods, Fondation Beyeler, Basel
February 3 - May 26, 2019
In 2019, as an exceptional cultural highlight, the Fondation Beyeler is mounting a unique exhibition devoted to Pablo Picasso’s masterpieces of his early Blue and Rose periods. This will be the most comprehensive presentation ever seen in Europe of Picasso’s paintings and sculptures from 1901 to 1906, each one of which is a milestone on the road to recognition as the twentieth century’s paramount artist. Picasso’s pictures from this period are counted among the most beautiful examples of modern art and are certainly some of the most valuable art works anywhere in the world.
Ida Tursic & Wilfried Mille are nominated for the Prix Marcel Duchamp 2019
Almine Rech is pleased to announce the nomination of Ida Tursic & Wilfried Mille for the Prix Marcel Duchamp 2019.
The Prix Marcel Duchamp reflects above all the collector’s view – the view of the informed and enthusiastic lay art-lover – of the French scene today. But beyond the very wide-ranging roster of artists shortlisted since 2000, a glimpse of the vast artistic panorama of our times, the prize is also the vehicle of a humanist message reflecting the French spirit of open-mindedness and even-handedness that I value enormously and which seems to me ever more important to defend in the divided world we live in.
Founded by the aDiaF in 2000, open to French and French-based artists and organised from the first in partnership with the Centre Pompidou, the Prix Marcel Duchamp has made its mark as one of the most effective vehicles for raising awareness of contemporary art in France, gaining a prestige that makes it one of the most important of national prizes on the international scene.
Deliberately intended to recognise the most innovative artists of their generation, the Prix Marcel Duchamp seeks to promote the whole spectrum of contemporary art while setting different forms and practices into dialogue. The prize has to date been awarded to 16 artists from among some 70 shortlisted candidates.
