Neues Museum Weimar
Van de Velde, Nietzsche and Modernism around 1900
The former Grand Ducal Museum was built in 1869 – one of the first museums in Germany. In 2019, the Neues Museum Weimar will become an integral part of the Quarter of Weimar Modernism centred around the bauhaus museum. In 2020, it will be joined by a Buchenwald Memorial exhibition on the subject of “forced labour” in the south wing of the “Gauforum”, and the House of the Weimar Republic on Theaterplatz. The new permanent exhibition “Van de Velde, Nietzsche and Modernism around 1900” features outstanding international works of Realism, Impressionism and Jugendstil which exemplify a radiant, but ambivalent chapter of art history with numerous references to contemporary trends. Based on the philosopher and cult figure Friedrich Nietzsche, the exhibition will present important works of early modernism in Weimar, including pieces by the Weimar Art School and prominent avant-gardists, e.g. Claude Monet and Max Beckmann, who enjoyed the support of Harry Graf Kessler. The exhibition will also present numerous functional and elegant works designed by Henry van de Velde. A large museum workshop will offer regular and special programmes that invite visitors to actively explore exhibition themes related to handicrafts, such as bookbinding and woodworking. Both the exhibition “Van de Velde, Nietzsche and Modernism around 1900” and the museum-pedagogical workshops in the Neues Museum Weimar are financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Free State of Thuringia, represented by the Thuringian State Chancellery, Department of Culture and Art

Haus am Horn
The Haus Am Horn is widely regarded as one of the pioneering examples of modern living. This is where the revolutionary ideas of the Bauhaus materialised for the first time in their own unique architectural style. The model house, designed by Georg Muche and presented at the first Bauhaus Exhibition in 1923, is only a stone’s throw away from the Goethe Gartenhaus. Every piece of furniture was handcrafted in the Bauhaus workshops by such renowned Bauhäusler as Marcel Breuer, Theodor Bogler and Alma Siedhoff-Buscher. As the only original Bauhaus construction in Weimar, the Haus Am Horn belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage Site »Bauhaus and its Sites in Weimar, Dessau and Bernau«. Due to various alterations carried out over the past century, the Haus Am Horn is now undergoing extensive renovation to return it to its original appearance. The Klassik Stiftung Weimar will reopen the Haus Am Horn to visitors in time for the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in April 2019.

Constructive Responses to Climate Change
At a time when extreme climatic phenomena, air quality, and industrial impact are among the most pressing issues on the public agenda, the dramatic change in the climate has led to the realization that capitalism has a destructive effect on the environment. Our lifestyle must be reevaluated in order to positively impact both present and future.

Home's Horizons
The Davis Museum at Wellesley College presents Fatimah Tuggar: Home’s Horizons, a major solo exhibition that investigates history, technology, and the home. A multimedia artist born in Nigeria in 1967 and currently based in Kansas City, Missouri, Tuggar has taught and exhibited around the world. Curated by Assistant Curator Amanda Gilvin, this exhibition featuring sculpture, photo-montage, video, and augmented reality (AR) highlights Tuggar’s interrogation of the systems underlying human interactions with both high-tech gadgets and handmade crafts. She seeks to promote social justice by implicating everyone in these systems, while playfully proposing new ways of seeing and making.

Cover for  Senga Nengudi
Senga Nengudi
For close to fifty years, Senga Nengudi (b. 1943) has shaped an oeuvre that inhabits a specific and unique place between sculpture, dance and performance. Before moving to Colorado Springs at the end of the 1980s where she lives until today, Nengudi was mostly based in Los Angeles. In the 1960s and 1970s, L.A. was the capital of an African-American artistic avant-garde with Nengudi as one of its pivotal figures. Her iconic R.S.V.P sculptures, exhibited for the first time in 1976, are made from pantyhose combined with natural materials such as sand and stone. While ostensibly abstract, their biomorphic forms suggest a body under tension, both physical and social. The artist herself describes the works as “stationary performances.” As the title of the growing series—R.S.V.P., short for “Répondez, s’il vous plait” or “Please respond”—implies, these works formulate an invitation and are occasionally activated during choreographed performances. Performance is at the core of Nengudi's practice—a fact that will be reflected by the exhibition. An illustrated catalog in English and German will be published. Curated by Stephanie Weber and Anna Straetmans.

Outsider Art
The Collection of Victor Keen
Hosting the Victor Keen collection at the Arts Center is an outstanding opportunity to share with our visitors and community a collection that pushes the boundaries of art and facilitates a native son to share his treasures with Pueblo. "Still, for convenience, I refer to “outsider” art and “outsider” artists, as a shorthand with the understanding that others may favor other descriptives. Outsider art is not a “school” of art; what sets it apart is the circumstances and characteristics of the artist. The biographical narrative of every outsider artist is unique, but most share one or more of the following: no or only limited art training; living with mental or physical infirmities; poverty; educational deficit; being held back by racial discrimination. Most did not create their art for others, and any made no effort to share the work with anyone; some even affirmatively withheld it from the view of others." -Victor Keen “When it comes to self-taught and outsider art, there is a special barrier to a full embrace by head and heart. In the face of this supposedly raw art, we are often exhorted with evangelical force to renounce analysis and lay aside what we carry of knowledge and experience—what the artist Jean Dubuffet called asphyxiating culture—in favor of genuine response.” –Lyle Rexer Special events: Saturday, October 6, 2019 | Coffee with the Curator Friday, November 1, 2019 | Free First Friday ArtWalk Friday, December 6, 2019 | Free First Friday ArtWalk

Agnes Pelton
Desert Transcendentalist
Organized by Phoenix Art Museum, Agnes Pelton: Desert Transcendentalist is the first survey of the obscure American modernist painter in more than 23 years. Although she painted conventional landscapes and portraits, Pelton (1881–1961) is most celebrated for her abstract compositions that reflect her interest in esoteric subjects, including numerology and Agni Yoga with its principal focus on fire as a guiding force. The exhibition of more than 40 works from various private and museum collections sheds light on Pelton’s artistic contributions to American Modernism, a movement more commonly associated with artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986) in the Southwest and Marsden Hartley (1877–1943) in New England. Furthermore, Pelton’s interest in spirituality and abstraction links her to a larger international movement that is only now being properly studied and contextualized. Desert Transcendentalist represents a fascinating reexamination of an overlooked female artist and her rightful place within the canon of modern and contemporary art history.

The Aztecs
Marking the 500th anniversary of the Spanish conqueror Hernán Cortés' landfall in the Gulf of Mexico, this major exhibition offers a fascinating insight into Aztec culture. At the centre of the exhibition are two unique feather shields and a nephrite jade figurine from the Württemberg State Museum, objects that have never been presented in the context of Aztec culture. These exquisite treasures will be complemented by high-quality objects loaned from Mexican and European institutions. Another focal point of this exhibition will be the presentation of the latest research results; for example, previously undisclosed findings regarding the great temple, the Templo Mayor, first discovered in 1978, will be on display. Impressive stone sculptures, ceramics, mosaics and gold works will provide a glimpse into Aztec art and culture, with vivid illustrations from colourful illuminated manuscripts bringing the visitor deeper into the subject. The dramaturgy of the exhibition follows the journey of Cortés from the peripheral provinces all the way to the sacred ceremonial precinct of the capital, Tenochtitlán.

Icons
Worship and Adoration
With this spectacular exhibition the Kunsthalle Bremen is celebrating a premiere: For the first time, an exhibition will take over the entire museum. The show will present a single masterpiece in each of the museum’s galleries – from the Russian icon to Andy Warhol. With 60 stars in 60 galleries, the exhibiton will examine how the concept of the icon unites aspects of the sacred, worship and the idea of transcendence. Focussing on a single work of art, the presentation examines various aspects of spirituality, devotion and adoration. It invites visitors to experience iconic art works from ten centuries in a new and intense way. Works by Caspar David Friedrich, Wassily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, Mark Rothko, Yves Klein, Niki de Saint Phalle, Isa Genzken, Andreas Gursky and Kehinde Wiley will be complemented by everyday icons – from consumer brands to icons of popular culture such as Marilyn Monroe, Beyoncé and YouTube stars. An interpretation of the traditional notion of the icon in art will be juxtaposed with the proliferation of icons in everyday life. A once-in-a-lifetime experience in which the museum itself is transformed into a place of contemplation and reflection!

MAKING VAN GOGH
A German Love Story
The exhibition will be the first ever to take an in-depth look at Van Gogh’s œuvre in the context of its reception in Germany. Its point of departure is a selection of major works from all phases of the Dutch painter’s career. Building on that foundation, the presentation will be devoted to Van Gogh’s significance for the development of German art at the beginning of the twentieth century. Here an important reference point will be the Städel’s extensive collection of Expressionist works. Alongside well-known examples by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Gabriele Münter and Max Beckmann, the show will also feature artists meriting rediscovery – and on whom Van Gogh had an equally formative influence –, for example Peter August Böckstiegel, Maria Slavona or Heinrich Nauen.

The Art of Seeing
This first Swiss museum exhibition of drawings and paintings by Wilhelm Leibl (1844 – 1900) looks in particular at portraits and figural works. Supported by Courbet, influenced by Manet and admired by van Gogh, Leibl is one of the lesser known but influential figures of Realism in Europe. He withdrew to the countryside, where he founded an independent and modern form of figure painting, in which truth to nature and the study of the Old Masters supersede the anecdotal approach of traditional genre painting. Crucial for Leibl was not that his subjects should be seen as beautiful, but rather that they be well observed. The exhibition, which features loans from Germany, Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Switzerland, travels to the Albertina in Vienna after it closes in Zurich.

Cover for  Die ganze Welt ein Bauhaus
The Whole World a Bauhaus
The Bauhaus was founded 1919 in Weimar, Germany. Between the spirit of new beginnings and the threatening rise of nationalism, the Bauhaus established itself in just 14 years and became a symbol of modern design and an avant-garde way of life. Designs originating in this period are still produced today. But how did the Bauhaus manage to become such an innovative force in design and teaching, and in societies? The ifa exhibition »The Whole World a Bauhaus« is devoted to this theme in two parts. The exhibition title is programmatic: »The Whole World a Bauhaus« is a quotation from Bauhaus student and teacher Fritz Kuhr (1928). It alludes to the fact that the Bauhaus redefined the parameters of art, crafts, and technology, when Walter Gropius declared the aim of design to include the whole spectrum of design and also social practice in every sense.

Mapping Worlds
"Mapping Worlds" presents a selection of works on paper produced by Shuvinai Ashoona over the past two decades. Though many of her early drawings depict daily life in Kinngait (formerly Cape Dorset), Nunavut, continuing an artistic tradition begun by the artist’s grandmother Pitseolak Ashoona (1908–1983) and first cousin Annie Pootoogook (1969 – 2016), Shuvinai Ashoona is best known for developing a personal iconography with imagery ranging from closely observed naturalistic scenes of her Arctic home to monstrous and fantastical visions.

En la Herida
Death by violence is the central theme that informs the art of Teresa Margolles. She frequently uses materials coming from, or related to, dead human bodies, like human blood or water used to wash a corpse. In her pictures, sculptures, installations, performances, videos, and photographs she explores the brutality of death in the context of the Mexican drug war, the unjust social situation, gender hatred. The exhibition at the Kunsthalle Krems focuses on a recent topical aspect of her work: the nearly hopeless situation of transgender prostitutes in Ciudad Juárez, the city with the highest rate of violent crime in Mexico.

Lost Communities
Refugees leave their home, friends, relatives, often their entire family behind because, for whatever reason, they see no future for themselves where they are living. They leave for the unknown, for a foreign land, without their own language, without the community of family and friends. A drastic change of existence full of uncertainties begins.
