AUSTRIA

1 March – 8 July, KULTUM, Mariahilferplatz 3, Graz: Vulgata, 77 Zugriffe auf die Bibel. Die Ausstellung zeigt zudem als Beitrag zum 500. Reformationsjubiläum zeitgenössische Zugriffe auf ein Buch, die Spuren legen für Themen, die letztlich zeitlos und aktuell zugleich sind. Aber die sich genau in der Zeit bewähren müssen: dadurch haben sie gerade ihr politisches Potential. Darin aber sind sie auch ambivalent: Aufbruch und Abgrenzung, Schönheit und Scham, Nächstenliebe und Gewalt, Weisheit und Fundamentalismus – sie stehen dicht beieinander… Viele der Arbeiten in dieser Ausstellung werden das erste Mal gezeigt. Einige stammen aus bekannten Sammlungen (Vehbi Koç Foundation Istanbul; Sammlung Essl, Klosterneuburg; Benediktinerstift Admont – Museum für Gegenwartskunst), die dankenswerter Weise als Leihgaben zur Verfügung gestellt wurden. Curated by Johannes Rauchenberger. Di – Fr, 9 – 17 U, Sa, So, 11 – 17 U. http://www.kultum.at/

2 March - 14 May, Diözesanmuseum, Bürgergasse 2, Graz: Osterausstellung 2017, KunstBlick "Was sucht Ihr...?" Ein österlicher KunstBlick mit herausragenden Kunstwerken und dazu passenden Gedanken bekannter Persönlichkeiten. Di – Fr, 9 – 17 U, Sa, So, 11 – 17 U.  http://www.dioezesanmuseum.at

30 April – 8 October, Jüdisches Museum Hohenems, Villa Heimann-Rosenthal, Schweizer Str. 5, Hohenems: Die weibliche Seite Gottes – Perspektiven auf Geschlecht und Heiligkeit. Aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven versucht die Ausstellung sich den divergierenden Betrachtungen einer weiblichen Vorstellung Gottes, gerade auch in den monotheistischen Religionen des Judentums, Christentums und Islams anzunähern: in der Auseinandersetzung mit den Quellen der monotheistischen Gottesidee und ihrer materiellen Überlieferung, in Vorstellungen vom Weiblichen als negative Antithese zum Männlichen, aus der Perspektive künstlerischer Hinterfragungen überkommener Gottesvorstellungen und im Blick auf ausgewählte Objekte aus der Hinterlassenschaft jüdischer Frauen, die nach eigenen Dimensionen des Göttlichen gesucht haben. Di – so, 10 – 17 U. http://www.jm-hohenems.at/veranstaltungen/die-weibliche-seite-gottes

 

BELGIUM

5 June 2009 – 31 December 2017, Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal, Antwerp: Reunion, from Quinten Metsijs to Peter Paul Rubens. Masterworks from the Royal Museum back in the cathedral. 

18 June 2011 – 31 December 2017, Stedelijk Museum in Lier: exhibition Bruegelland about Pieter Bruegel de Oude.

12 October – 28 May, 2017, Caermersklooster, Vrouwebroersstraat 6, Ghent: Restoration – Revelation. The exterior wings of the Ghent Altarpiece. In 2012 the restorers of the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA, Brussels) started treatment of the Ghent Altarpiece by the Van Eyck brothers. No one expected this restoration to turn into a revelation: the real Van Eyck proved to have been hidden underneath overpaint for centuries! The temporary exhibition restoration/revelation brings the tale of this spectacular intervention. An exploration journey through the old varnishes and overpaint… leading to the original work of Van Eyck. Unique images from before, during and after restoration address all your questions: how did the restorers proceed? What scientific techniques did they use to confirm their observations or discover new elements? And – most of all – in what way did the overpaint transform the art work and what does it look like now? Opening hours: http://www.caermersklooster.be/en/exhibition-restoration-revelation

The UK’s first exhibition devoted to the Bruegel dynasty, including recent attributions for two paintings from the Museum’s own collection.

15 February – 21 May, The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London: Cagnacci's Repentant Magdalene. On loan from the Norton Simon Museum, the painting is on display in the UK for the first time in over thirty years. Guido Cagnacci was one of the most unconventional Italian painters of the Baroque period and was celebrated in his own lifetime for his extremely sensual paintings of female saints and heroines. 'The Repentant Magdalene' is widely regarded as Cagnacci’s masterpiece. Full of drama and sensuality, it depicts Mary Magdalene rejecting her life of sin and excess in favour of following Christ. 10 – 18 h, fr. until 21 h. https://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/whats-on/exhibitions/cagnaccis-repentant-magdalene

27 February – 19 April, Peterborough Cathedral: Via Crucis - A Lenten Exhibition. 9 – 17 h. http://www.peterborough-cathedral.org.uk/143/section.aspx/142/via_crucis

1 March – 15 April (prints) St Bartholomew Church, Wick, South Goucestershire: Via Crucis:  The 14 mixed media pictures follow the Scriptural gospel narrative. The imagery used draws on the medieval Arma Christi manuscripts, which depict the tools and objects associated with Christ's Passion. The intention is to contemplate the relevance of the Jesus' journey with our own intentions, sufferings and aspirations.  

1 March – 20 April, St Michael’s Church, Discoed, near Presteigne: A Lent exhibition of drawings by forty artists, each of whom was given a Lent theme and asked to interpret it through the lens of another artist's work. 10 – 17 h. http://www.discoed.org

6 March – 31 March, St Stephen Walbrook, 39 Walbrook, London: Crucifixions: Francis Bacon. For Lent 2017 St Stephen Walbrook is exhibiting Crucifixion drawings by Francis Bacon from “The Francis Bacon Collection of the drawings donated to Cristiano Lovatelli Ravarino”. Between 1977 and 1992 Francis Bacon donated to an intimate Italian friend a considerable number of drawings, pastels and collages. Today those drawings are part of a collection which has previously been exhibited in Bologna, Dubrovnik, London, Madrid and Trieste among other locations. The image of crucifixion was consistently utilised by Francis Bacon in his art to think about all life’s horror as he could not find a subject as valid to embrace all the nuances of human feelings and behaviours. This exhibition of crucifixion drawings by Bacon provides an opportunity to explore why the image of the crucified Christ retained its power for an avowed atheist such as Bacon and to reflect on the horror of the suffering that Christ endured for humanity. Mo – fr, 10 – 16 h, (we, 11 – 15 h). http://www.ststephenwalbrook.net 

7 March – 4 June, mo – sa, 10 – 17 h, su and bank holidays 12 – 17 h, The Fitzwilliam Museum, 32 Trumpington St, Cambridge: Madonnas & Miracles.

15 March – 25 June, daily 10 – 18 h (fr until 20 h), The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London: Michelangelo and Sebastiano: A Meeting of Minds. Though it was rare for his contemporaries to get close to the mighty Michelangelo, an astonishing friendship was struck up when he met Sebastiano del Piombi in Rome in 1511. Hailing from Venice, Sebastiano showed immense promise in working with colour, but it was Michelangelo’s tutelage in the Florentine style of drawing that greatly increased his talents. https://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/whats-on/exhibitions/the-credit-suisse-exhibition-michelangelo-sebastiano

20 March – 31 March, 9 – 13 h, Emmanuel Church Lyncroft Gardens, West Hampstead London: Water Stations. In celebration of World Water Day, 7 alumni of UAL/ Chelsea College of Arts respond to the theme of water with sculpture, installation, film, and painting. Emmanuel Church stands close to the course of the culverted River Westbourne, and on one of its tributaries, which makes it a particularly resonant location for this show.  http://www.emmanuelnw6.com/

4 February – 7 May, Fondation Custodia / Collectie Frits Lugt, 121 rue de Lille, Paris: Drawings for Paintings in the Age of Rembrandt. Drawings for Paintings in the Age of Rembrandt provides an intimate insight into the working practices of forty of the greatest Dutch painters, including Rembrandt, Pieter Saenredam, Adriaen and Isack van Ostade, Aelbert Cuyp, Willem van de Velde and Jacob van Ruisdael. After having lived separate lives for four centuries, twenty-one paintings are now reunited with the drawings in which they were prepared. Years of research have been necessary to pair these drawings with an identifiable painting. Following its success at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, the exhibition at the Fondation Custodia offers visitors a chance to immerse themselves in the creative process of seventeenth-century Dutch painters. The immediacy and true-to-life character of Dutch landscapes, still lifes and scenes of daily life seem to suggest that artists painted such scenes from life. However, like portraits and history paintings, they were invariably painted in the studio with the help of preliminary drawings. Tu- su, 12 – 18 h.  http://fondationcustodia.fr/english/actueel/tentoonstelling.cfm?gr=menu4

20 February – 22 May, Musée de Louvre, Paris: Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting: Inspiration and Rivalry.

24 February – 24 May, tous les 1ers dimanches du mois de 14.30 - 17.30 h, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Carcassonne, 1 rue de Verdun, Carcassonne: Marie Madeleine, La passion révélée. Depuis l’époque médiévale jusqu’à aujourd’hui les artistes n’ont cessé d’être inspirés par ce personnage biblique ambigu : à la fois pécheresse et repentante, voluptueuse et ascète, mondaine et ermite. Plus d’une centaine de manuscrits, objets d’art, sculptures, peintures et dessins tâchent de cerner la figure inclassable et légendaire de Marie Madeleine, premier témoin de la Passion et de la Résurrection du Christ. http://www.carcassonne.org/marie-madeleine-la-passion-revelee

14 March - 25 June, Musée d'Orsay, 1 Rue de la Légion d'Honneur, Paris: Beyond the Stars. The Mystical Landscape from Monet to Kandinsky. Connecting with an order beyond physical appearances, going deeper than material realities to come closer to the mysteries of existence, experimenting with losing oneself in perfect unity with the cosmos: these quests are all characteristic of mysticism, the spiritual phenomenon that exists alongside all religions, in all continents. Why not, then, acknowledge its presence in Western Symbolist painting, which, at the close of the 19th century, precisely sought to elevate art to the medium of the ineffable and the artist to the rank of initiate? 09.30 – 18 h. http://www.musee-orsay.fr/en/events/exhibitions/in-the-musee-dorsay/exhibitions-in-the-musee-dorsay/article/au-dela-des-etoiles-44978.html?tx_ttnews%5BbackPid%5D=254&cHash=1e123ff4c4

Flugschriften der Reformation als Medienereignis. 1554 gelangte mit der Bibliothek des ansbachisch-markgräflichen Kanzlers Georg Vogler mit 58 Bänden eine der bedeutendsten Flugschriftensammlungen in Rothenburger Besitz. Ihre Inhalte zu vermitteln und die Umwälzungen der Medienlandschaft des frühen 16. Jahrhunderts darzustellen, hat sich das Reichsstadtmuseum mit dieser Sonderausstellung zur Aufgabe gemacht. Öffnungszeiten:  http://www.reichsstadtmuseum.rothenburg.de/index.php?id=160

11 February – 25 June, Diözesanmuseum Osnabrück, Domhof 12, Osnabrück: Im Angesicht des Todes. Begegnung zwischen Schicksal und Hoffnung. Seit Anbeginn der Zeit beschäftigen sich Menschen mit ihrer eigenen Endlichkeit. Im Mittelalter erreichte das Sterblichkeitsbewusstsein seinen Höhepunkt und fand einen ganz neuen Ausdruck im Motiv des Totentanzes. Auch wenn die Bildsprachen höchst unterschiedlich sind und von humorvoll bis skurril und bitterernst reichen, das Motiv ist stets dasselbe und hat bis heute nichts von seiner Aktualität verloren: Der Tod bittet alle zum Tanz, unabhängig von Stand, Besitz und Ansehen. Die Ausstellung im Diözesanmuseum stellt einen gestickten Totentanz aus der eigenen Sammlung in den Mittelpunkt und sucht davon ausgehend Antworten auf die Frage, welchen Umgang Menschen von jeher mit Sterben und Tod gefunden haben. Ergänzt wird die Ausstellung von einigen zeitgenössischen Positionen. Heute sind Sterben und Tod zwei der größten Tabuthemen. Di – So, 10 – 18 U. http://www.dansemacabre-osnabrueck.de/dioezesanmuseum/

12 February – 26 June, Felix-Nussbaum-Haus Osnabrück, Lotter Str. 2, Osnabrück: Danse Macabre. Tanz und Tod in der Kunst des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts. Im Zentrum der Ausstellung stehen Ernst Ludwig Kirchners Gemälde Totentanz der Mary Wigman aus dem Jahr 1926 und Felix Nussbaums Triumph des Todes von 1944. Die Erfahrungen und die zerstörerische Brutalität des Ersten Weltkriegs schlugen sich vielfach in künstlerischer Auseinandersetzung nieder und ließen den Tod in Bildender Kunst, Musik, Literatur und modernem Tanz seit Beginn des Jahrhunderts allgegenwärtig werden. Die facettenreichen Präsentation lässt diese bewegte Ära zwischen den Weltkriegen wieder aufleben. Zusammen mit Grafiken Kirchners wird das Tanzstück in der Ausstellung umfassend dokumentiert. Ausstellungsexponate von Otto Dix, Ernst Barlach und Walt Disney erweitern das Thema und transportieren die ambivalente Stimmung der Zeit. Darüber hinaus sind Werke von Frans Masereel, Edmund Kesting und Karl Hofer zu sehen, die im oder unmittelbar nach dem Ende des zweiten Weltkriegs entstanden sind. Die Installation der israelischen Künstlerin Michal Helfman While Dictators Rage aus dem Jahr 2013 ergänzt die Ausstellung um eine zeitgenössische Position und stellt spannende Bezüge zur Gegenwart her. Di – So 11 – 18 U.

Erstmals zeigen das Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig und die Kunsthalle zu Kiel in einer gemeinsam konzipierten Ausstellung dieses aufregende Kapitel deutscher Kunstgeschichte.

4 March - 21 May, Museum am Dom, Bischof-Stein-Platz 1, Trier: Misereor-Hungertücher, Eine alte Tradition wird neu interpretiert. Das Museum am Dom in Trier nimmt den diesjährigen Start der Misereor-Fastenaktion in Trier zum Anlass, eine Auswahl an Hungertüchern aus den letzten 40 Jahren auszustellen und gleichzeitig das aktuelle Hungertuch des nigerianischen Künstlers Chidi Kwubiri vorzustellen. 1976 griff Misereor die alte Tradition der mittelalterlichen Hunger- oder Fastentücher auf, die während der Fastenzeit in den Kirchen aufgehängt wurden und das Kreuz und den Altar, manchmal auch den ganzen Chorraum verhüllten. Ein Rückblick auf einige Misereor-Hungertücher soll zeigen, wie diese alte Tradition mit neuem Leben gefüllt wurde.

8 March – 11 June, Suermondt-Ludwig-Museum, Wilhelmstraße 18, Aachen: Blood & Tears. Albrecht Bouts and the Image of the Passion. With prestigious loans from the National Gallery London, the Prado Museum and the Louvre among others, the exhibition Blood & Tears. Albrecht Bouts and the Image of the Passion brings together for the first time exceptional works from the late 15th and early 16th centuries. Albrecht Bouts (1451/55-1549) is the son of Dirk Bouts (ca. 1415-1475), a renowned Early Netherlandish painter with a pan-European reputation. He takes over his father's workshop in 1475 and runs it until his death in 1549. Albrecht specializes in portraits of Christ, the Holy Virgin and Saint John the Baptist for contemplation. This movement, known as Devotio Moderna, encourages the faithful to pray in private in front of devotional images to stimulate empathy. In order to satisfy a growing demand for such images, Albrecht Bout's workshop expands into a large enterprise, producing paintings in great number. Opening hours, see http://www.suermondt-ludwig-museum.de/info/index.html.

LUXEMBOURG

25 February – 28 May, Villa Vauban - Musée d'Art de la Ville de Luxembourg, 18 avenue Emile Reuter, Luxembourg: The legacy of Hieronymus Bosch. Few oeuvres have maintained as intense an aura of mystery as that of the Dutch Renaissance painter Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450-1516). As an epilogue to the numerous international exhibitions of the 2016 “Bosch Year”, Villa Vauban is showcasing artists who drew their inspiration from Bosch’s oeuvre in the subsequent centuries. Displaying about 100 prints, paintings and elaborate figurines the exhibition illustrates how Bosch’s unique vernacular seeped into the visual vocabulary of his successors until the early modern age and even into the 18th century. Daily 10 – 18 h (Tu until 21 h).  http://villavauban.lu/en/exhibition/lheritage-de-jerome-bosch/

 

THE NETHERLANDS   

24 September – 9 April 2017, Kröller-Müller Museum, Houtkampweg 6, Otterlo: The Early Van Gogh: 'Work against Indifference'. When Vincent van Gogh decided to become an artist and taught himself how to draw and paint, he focused his attention on the people who had to work hard for their living, in humble workshops and on farmlands in all weathers. This exhibition shows how Van Gogh at the beginning of his career taught himself to transmit his world view into image. Unlike contemporaries like Isaac Israels or George Breitner he does not focus mundane city life, but the edges of society. With his depictions ‘of the people, for the people’, Vincent strove to sincerely express his compassion for their way of life. Or, as he put it in a letter to his brother Theo: ‘I say it again – work against indifference – perseverance isn’t easy – but things that are easy mean little’. The emphasis is on Van Gogh’s drawings. These in particular clearly show how he struggled to master the technique and to depict volume and movement in his figures. Moreover, he sought to depict ‘life’ itself and if necessary to draw ‘inaccuracies’ that were ‘truer’ than the ‘literal truth’. Opening hours: http://krollermuller.nl/en/opening-hours-and-prices

SCOTLAND

1 December 2011 – 1 April 2019, Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh: Reformation to Revolution. At the beginning of the sixteenth century Scotland was a Catholic state governed by the Stewart dynasty (who later spelled their name Stuart). By the close of the seventeenth century the monarchy, church and parliament had all changed drastically. After 1603 the Stuarts, now based in London, were absentee rulers, and the nature of kingship was itself increasingly contested. The huge upheavals of the Reformation saw Protestantism become the nation’s official religion. The collapse of the old church and the dispersal of its lands and wealth brought about a major shift of power and income: new landed classes vied with established noble families for status and influence. These complex changes had important cultural consequences. With religious painting no longer acceptable, there was an increase in demand for secular art forms, portraiture in particular. This coincided with a growing merchant and professional class beginning to commission works of art to display their increased ambition and economic strength. Painted portraits were expensive, and those who acquired them came from the wealthiest levels of society, both old and new.  These men and women used portraits to assert ideas of social status as well as to record an individual likeness.  Their images played a significant role in the struggles for power, identity and nationhood during this period.

SWITZERLAND

13 October 2016 – 17 April 2017, Bernisches Historisches Museum, Helvetiaplatz 5, Bern: Mercenary, iconoclast, dancer of death. Niklaus Manuel (1484–1530) was a painter, graphic artist, mercenary, writer, politician and diplomat all in one. All these facets to his life make him one of Switzerland’s most striking figures in the transition from the Middle Ages to the modern period. New media (printing), new worlds (the discovery of America), new knowledge (the Renaissance) and a new faith (the Reformation) shaped this time of upheaval in European history at the end of the 15th and beginning of the 16th centuries. The Reformation shattered the homogeneous Christian concept of the meaning of life accepted throughout Europe. Existential matters such as love, violence and death gained new urgency. In the Swiss Confederation of the time, questions of “them” and “us”, of solidarity and exclusion, and the impact of foreign paymasters and foreign powers came to the fore. Seen from today’s perspective the first decades of the modern age are astonishingly topical. The exhibition follows the life of Niklaus Manuel from mercenary to statesman, from artist to iconoclast. Superlative paintings, unknown drawings, woodcuts and texts by Manuel plus books, weapons, clothes, tapestries, paintings on glass and sculptures from the collections of the Bernisches Historisches Museum and more than thirty lenders in Switzerland and Europe bring Manuel and the world he lived in to life. The exhibition reveals a colourful personality and a great artist, and through him an entire era. It is also part of the celebrations of the fifth centenary of the Reformation in 2017. Tu – su, 10 – 17 h. http://http://www.bhm.ch/en/exhibitions/temporary-exhibition/mercenary-iconoclast-dancer-of-death/the-exhibition/

Die Ausstellung zeigt neben Einzelwerken vor allem einen Zyklus zur Bibel, der aus 25 Farblithografien besteht. Die Lithografien der Sammlung Würth entstanden 1960 und ihre Themen unterscheiden sich von den übrigen Bibelillustrationen insofern, als ihnen besonders Berichte über Frauen und deren Beitrag zur Geschichte Israels zugrunde liegen: So begegnen wir darin Eva, Sarah, Hagar, Rahel, Naemi oder Ruth und sehen ihre Geschichten durch die Augen Chagalls, der die Bibel als «reichste poetische Quelle aller Zeiten» empfand.

ISRAEL

22 December 2016 – 16 April, Nathan Cummings Building for Modern and Contemporary Art, Israel Museum, Jerusalem: Behold the Man: Jesus in Israeli Art. From the 19th century until today, Jewish and Israeli artists have engaged with the figure of Jesus, addressing complex questions of collective and individual identity. This exhibition, the result of extensive scholarly research, presents multivalent, unexpected, and at times subversive artistic responses: European artists reclaimed Jesus as a Jew and portrayed him as a symbol of Jewish suffering, and Zionist artists used the resurrection as a metaphor for the rebirth of the Jewish homeland; some Israeli artists related to Jesus as a social rebel or misunderstood prophet, while others identified with his personal torment or his sacrifice for the sake of humanity, which they connected to more recent victims of intolerance and warfare. http://www.imj.org.il/en/#

CANADA

28 January – 11 June, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal (Montreal Museum of Fine Arts), 1380, Sherbrooke Street O, Montreal: Chagall: Colour and Music. This is the biggest Canadian exhibition ever devoted to Marc Chagall (1887-1985). Featuring 340 works of art and a large selection of documentary works, including films, photographs and musical excerpts, this multidisciplinary exhibition is the first to focus on Chagall’s profound connection to music in his life and work. Through this original approach, the exhibition demonstrates how all of Chagall’s work, from his paintings, works on paper, costumes, sculptures, ceramics, stained glass and tapestries to his creations for the stage and his large-scale decorative and architectural projects, were imbued with musicality. The layout of this major exhibition is both chronological and thematic, covering all the periods of the artist’s long and productive career – his years in Russia, his Parisian period, his exile in New York, his time in Mexico and his life in the South of France. Mo – Su, 10 am – 5 pm (We until 9 pm).  https://www.mbam.qc.ca/en/exhibitions/on-view/chagall/

24 January – 23 June, The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life, 2121 Allston Way, Berkeley: I-Tal-Yah: An Island of Divine Dew: Italian Crossroads in Jewish Culture. A crossroads in world culture, Italy has been for over two thousand years a haven for many layers of immigration from the four corners of the Diaspora. Different Jewish worlds mingled together in the peninsula, while still keeping specific traits. While maintaining century-old traditions, Italian Jews also tested out new cultural formats that came to define Jewish modernity. This exhibition presents a selection of manuscripts, books, ritual objects, textiles, photographs, and postcards collected over five decades to investigate the global significance of Jewish history in Italy. Tu – fr, 11 – 16 h.  http://www.magnes.org/visit/exhibitions-programs/exhibitions/i-tal-yah

5 February – 4 June, National Gallery of Art, 6th & Constitution Ave NW, Washington, DC: Della Robbia: Sculpting with Color in Renaissance Florence. Luca della Robbia (1399/1400-1482), a master sculptor in marble and bronze, invented a glazing technique for terracotta sculpture that positioned him as one of the most innovative artists of the 15th century. Today, the sculptures created by Luca and his family workshop retain their brilliant opaque whites, deep cerulean blues, and botanical greens, purples and yellows over modeling that makes them powerful and engaging examples of Italian Renaissance art.  Resistant to weather and easily readable at a distance, Della Robbia works were widely collected in the late 19th and early 20th century by Americans traveling to Italy who sought to bring something of the Renaissance home. Mo – sa 10 – 17 h, su 11 – 18 h. http://www.nga.gov/content/ngaweb/exhibitions/2017/della-robbia-sculpting-with-color-in-renaissance-florence.html

13 February - 21 May, 10 am – 5.30 pm (Fr and Sa until 9 pm), Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York: The Mysterious Landscapes of Hercules Segers. The great experimental printmaker Hercules Segers (Dutch, ca. 1590–ca. 1638), one of the most fertile artistic minds of his time, created otherworldly landscapes of astonishing originality. With a unique array of techniques whose identification still puzzles scholars, he etched extraordinary, colorful landscapes and still lifes. Rejecting the idea that prints from a single plate should all look the same in black and white, he produced impressions in varied color schemes—painting them, then adding lines or cutting down the plate. Segers turned each impression of his evocative landscapes into unique miniature paintings that seem out of their time. He was a favorite artist of Rembrandt, who owned eight paintings and one printing plate by Segers.  http://www.metmuseum.org/exhibitions/listings/2017/hercules-segers

21 February – 14 April, Boone Family Art Gallery, Pasadena City College, 1570 E. Colorado Blvd. Pasadena: Tim Hawkinson's solo show "Recent Work". Tim Hawkinson is recognized internationally for his unsurpassed and uncanny creativity. Mixing high tech and low tech in unexpected confluence, his resulting artworks are a wonder of creative ingenuity. Because of his remarkable spirit of invention and the wonderfully unpredictable outcomes of his inquisitive postulations, Tim Hawkinson is an inspiration, modeling creativity as a playful dance with life itself. http://pasadena.edu/campus-life/the-arts/the-galleries/exhibitions/2017-tim-hawkinson.php

21 February – 14 April, Gallery V-108, Pasadena City College, 1570 E. Colorado Blvd. Pasadena: Three-person show of Lynn Aldrich, Miyoshi Barosh and Doug Harvey. This is a companion show to the Tim Hawkinson solo in the Boone Family Art Gallery. We present this group show of artists whose works re-envision function, recasting materials into new, unexpected roles in artworks that embody a strong textural or tactile aspect in their materiality as they are reinvented from their original mundane or cast-off status. At times bridging sculpture and painting, these repurposed media enjoy a new life, giving us pause to consider that art fodder is all around us if we can embrace a fresh perspective and open our minds to the possibilities around us.  http://pasadena.edu/campus-life/the-arts/the-galleries/exhibitions/2017-tactile.php

1 March – 16 April, An Exhibition across Washington, D.C. in 14 Iconic Destinations. A Pilgrimage for Art Lovers, A Protest for the Disenfranchised. "Why have you forsaken me?" Jesus’ words upon the cross speak acutely to the anguish and alienation felt by many today in America, from immigrants and refugees to religious, sexual, and ethnic minorities. This unique exhibition—held in 14 locations across Washington, D.C. — will use works of art to tell the story of Jesus’ Passion in a new way, acutely relevant to the plight of America’s disenfranchised. The Stations weave through religious as well as secular spaces, from the Mall to downtown D.C., and up to the National Cathedral.  Instead of easy answers, the Stations aim to provoke the passions: artistically, spiritually, and politically. The art on display includes monuments, Old Master paintings, and newly commissioned art installations.  Featured artists include Ndume Olatushani—once falsely imprisoned on death row—and Michael Takeo Magruder, one of the world’s leading artists in digital media, who has created a haunting Shroud of Turin filled with the faces of Syrian refugees. Visitors can take this tour by downloading the smartphone app, ‘Alight: Art & Sacred.’ The app will serve as your tour guide with podcasts from leading clergy, artists, and scholars, along with maps leading to each of the stations. These items, as well as details on the artists, spaces, contributors, and associated events, including openings at the United Methodist Building on the evening of March 2 and the National Cathedral on March 4 are available on our website http://www.artstations.org.

4 March – 15 April, tu – sa, 11 – 18 h, Jason Vass Gallery, 1452 E. Sixth Street, Los Angeles, CA: Ready to See, exhibition by Dan Callis and Tina Linville. This is a two person exhibition of sculpture and painting. Each work is the product of a unique embodiment derived out of the artist’s cumulative experiences. Both Callis and Linville’s work display consciously evolved processes, evidenced by labored surfaces of contemplative and instinctual accumulation. The work adopts personhood and takes on a lived life. It becomes an archive of conversation between mark and material, structure and concept. http://jasonvass.com/1793-2/

5 March – 17 September, Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, 225 South Street, Williamstown, MA: An Inner World: Seventeenth-Century Dutch Genre Painting. An Inner World features seven exceptional genre paintings by Dutch artists working in or near the city of Leiden in the seventeenth century. Genre paintings, or scenes that take everyday life as their subject matter, flourished in the Dutch Republic in this period. Explored through the theme of an inner world, the works in this focused exhibition represent figures in interior spaces and individuals in moments of study, contemplation, and quiet exchange. Paintings by Gerrit Dou (1613–1675), Gabriel Metsu (1629–1667), Domenicus van Tol (c. 1635–1676), Willem van Mieris (1662–1747), and Jacob van Toorenvliet (1640–1719) demonstrate the artists’ sustained interest in the illusionism of space, candlelight, and painted surfaces.
