NEW YORK, NY.- Gagosian Gallery presents "Roy Lichtenstein: Still Lifes," the first exhibition devoted solely to Lichtenstein's still life paintings, sculptures and drawings, which span from 1972 through the early 1980s. Although Lichtenstein will always be synonymous with Pop Art, he continued to make inventive new work for almost three decades beyond the 1960s, during which he had become famous for his distinctive use of popular cartoon images and commercial painting style. On exhibition 8 May through 30 July, 2010.
Málaga,Spain - Opening on 22 September 2008, Beyond Painting. Max Ernst in the Würth Collection brings together fifty-seven works including an important selection of illustrated books that is outstanding both for its artistic worth and for the rare occasions on which it is so fully displayed. The exhibition also encompasses paintings, sculptures, drawings, collages and engravings that delve into and reveal the artist’s unsettling, extraordinary world. The works on display belong to the Würth Collection, Künzelsau (Germany), one of Europe’s foremost private holdings and will be shown until 1 March 2009 at the Museo Picasso Málaga.
BERLIN.- Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers present an exhibition of new works by Andreas Gursky in Berlin. The series of works represents an important new development in Gursky's practice in which the artist reassesses the way he works with photography. Like many of Andreas Gursky’s works, the new, six-part series Ocean I-VI (2009-2010) goes back to a spontaneous visual experience. As the artist relates, while flying one night from Dubai to Melbourne he stared for some time at the flight monitor: the Horn of Africa to the far left, a tip of Australia to the far right – and there in between the blue void. Then all of a sudden he saw the graphic representation on the monitor as a picture.
