10 July 2020 - 21 March 2024, M Leuven, Leopold Vanderkelenstraat 28, Leuven: Moved. The new collection presentation introduces the visitor to forgotten customs based on extraordinary religious objects that were intended to be both moved and moving. You see the extensive wardrobe and silver accessories of a statue that was carried in procession, but also a house altar, valuable reliquaries and special cultic objects. Often fragile, tactile, precious and the work of skilled craftspeople, each of these intriguing pieces was made to be touched and moved but also to move people spiritually. Through personal testimonies and historical images, the presentation brings old rituals back to life. At the same time, these historical traditions are juxtaposed with contemporary forms of veneration and worship. And the link with Leuven is never far away: the majority of the exhibited objects come from important churches and historical sites in Leuven. Th, 11 – 22 h, fr – tu, 11 – 18 h. https://www.mleuven.be/en/moved

2 September – 17 October, Anima Mundi, Street-an-Pol, St Ives, Cornwall: Sanctum by Joy Wolfenden Brown. Anima Mundi is delighted to present ‘Sanctum’, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Joy Wolfenden Brown, made over the past two years following a period where the artist battled stage three cancer. Sanctum is an unguarded and fragile expression of the liminal state of existence, which is all the more relatable and universal during these uncertain times. This collection of exquisitely intuitive and intimate, small and larger scale oil paintings are imbued with the artists renowned sensitivity to absorb the physical and metaphysical world that surrounds and precedes the present moment. Evocations of fortitude combine with vulnerability resting beneath an ethereally layered and unmannered, yet luminous oily surface. www.animamundigallery.com

2 September – 8 Januar 2023, Gemäldegalerie, Matthäikirchplatz, Berlin: Donatello. Erfinder der Renaissance. Donatello ist einer der Begründer der italienischen Renaissance. Seine Werke zeichneten sich durch technische Neuerungen aus und revolutionierten die künstlerische Praxis ihrer Zeit. Im Rahmen einer einmaligen Kooperation der Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin mit der Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, Florenz, den Musei del Bargello, Florenz, und dem Victoria & Albert Museum, London wird Donatello erstmals eine eigene Ausstellung in Deutschland gewidmet.

3 September – 29 Oktober, Galerie Bastian, Taylorstraße 1, Berlin: Emil Nolde – Anatomie aus Licht und Wasser. Das Meer, das Nolde in seinen Aquarellen ohne die Anwesenheit des Menschen darstellt, verbindet der Künstler mit philosophischen Fragen, deren Spiegel die See ist, Teil einer langen Kulturgeschichte, in der das Meer in allen Zeiten in Epen und Versen gefeiert wurde. In Betrachtung des Meeres projiziert Nolde einen endlosen mythischen Dialog, ja er folgt und vertraut sich dem Magismus der See an. In Wasserfarben und Tusche auf Japanpapier entsteht das Meer als Sinnbild elementarer Phänomene der Natur. Nolde erfindet aus expressivem Farbkolorit den Raum der See und des Lichts in mächtigen Symbiosen komplementärer Erscheinungen. In diesen Aquarellen der Seelandschaften, Anatomie des Meeres, erreicht Emil Nolde eine Vollkommenheit, die bis in unsere Gegenwart als seine singuläre Errungenschaft gilt. Mi – Sa, 11 – 17 U. https://www.bastian-gallery.com/ausstellungen/emil-nolde/

30 September – 8 January 2023, Frans Hals museum, Groot Heiligland 47, Haarlem: Newcomers. Flemish Artists in Haarlem 1580-1630. Flemish artists raised art to new heights in Haarlem. In the upcoming exhibition at the Frans Hals Museum, Newcomers, you can discover through the life and work of six famous artists, how art and the city changed forever around 1600. Leading figures include Frans Hals, Karel van Mander and Lieven de Key. While their achievements were unique, and each had their own story, they all came from a similar background: their roots lay in Flanders and Brabant. So, what motivated them, and what drew them to Haarlem? Many people moved from the Southern Netherlands to Haarlem between 1580 and 1630. These Flemish newcomers – artisans, traders and artists – had to start afresh in a city that was totally new to them. With their expertise, capital and talent, they enabled art to flourish in Haarlem. And their impact can still be seen to this day. The exhibition also includes work by contemporary artists, providing insight into the modern migration phenomenon. Hours: https://www.franshalsmuseum.nl/en/visit/practical-info/

2 septembre – 16 octobre, Musée d'art et d'histoire, Route de Morat 12, Fribourg: Yoki (1922-2012). Artiste Peintre et Verrier. Émile Aebischer, dit Yoki, est né à Romont, le 21 février 1922. Jeune homme, il y travaille à la verrerie Electroverre; pendant son temps libre, il s’adonne à la peinture en autodidacte. Les premières œuvres de Yoki sont marquées par l’art des Impressionnistes et des Nabis. À partir des années 1950, il se consacre principalement au vitrail et crée des œuvres figuratives et abstraites pour des églises en Suisse, en Allemagne, en France, en Italie, en Grande-Bretagne et en Israël. Dans les années 1970, Yoki revient à la peinture sur toile. Le point de départ de son œuvre tardive est constitué par des paysages poétiques qu’il rend de plus en plus abstraits. Son sujet de prédilection est le lac de Seedorf, à proximité duquel il possède un atelier. Malgré la progression de la maladie d’Alzheimer, il y travaille régulièrement jusqu’à sa mort, le 12 novembre 2012.

8 September – 11 December, Diverse Orte in Basel und Region: Sakrale Zeiten? – Zeitgenössische Kunst in sakralen Räumen und im städtischen Raum. In dieser Zeit werden wir alle mit Sinnfragen konfrontiert. Wir alle sind aufgerufen, uns intensiver mit der Vielfalt von Meinungen und Ansichten, aber auch mit der Bedeutung und der Endlichkeit des Lebens auseinanderzusetzen. Es ist nötig, sowohl über Toleranz als auch Ausgrenzung nachzudenken. Gedanken über Vergänglichkeit und Spiritualität erhalten gerade jetzt mehr Raum und Bedeutung. Vieles wird hinterfragt, was uns bis anhin klar und eindeutig erschien. Diese Sinnfragen beschäftigen auch viele Künstlerinnen und Künstler in ihrer Arbeit. In diesem Kontext plante die Basler Künstler:innengesellschaft ein Kunstprojekt, das zu einem Dialog über Philosophie, Glaube, Rationalität zum einen, aber auch zu universellen Fragen einlädt. 50 Veranstaltungen mit Tanz, Musik, Performance, Literatur, Film, Atelier, Workshop, Diskussionsrunden, Führungen, Predigtreihen / 22 Veranstaltungs- und Ausstellungsorte in den Kantonen Basel Stadt und Basel Land / Eröffnungsanlass: Do, 8. September, 18 Uhr, Peterskirche Basel / Eine Veranstaltung der Basler Künstler:innengesellschaft. https://www.basler-kuenstlergesellschaft.ch/sakrale-zeiten/

22 September – 18 October,  Leonard Hall, Wycliffe College, 5 Hoskin Ave, Toronto: Memory and Hope. It is inviting a look back and a look forward. Careful work was done to find artists who had association with Toronto School of Theology and a curatorial committee selected the works to be included. The intent of the exhibition is to capture something of the spirit of TST through creative artistic expression. In hosting this exhibit the community acknowledges the importance of the aesthetic in the life of faith and in the work of theology.  The arts are able to provide perspectives on theological themes that enrich both thought and experience. Our hope is that this exhibition will serve that end. Hours: https://www.wycliffecollege.ca/faith-and-arts

18 September – 31 December 2022, Timken Museum of Art, 1500 El Prado, San Diego, California: Exchanging Words: Women and Letters in Seventeenth-Century Dutch Genre Painting. Women and letters feature prominently in Dutch genre paintings from the second half of the seventeenth century. Captivating images show women reading, writing, and receiving letters, often in the company of books, and exchanging ideas with present or absent companions. Although the contents of these missives are rarely legible, they invite curiosity and contemplation, drawing the beholder into intimate, domestic spaces. Such scenes emphasize women’s engagement with the written word and demonstrate a remarkable interest in representing their intellectual lives. We – Su, 10 – 17 h. https://www.timkenmuseum.org/art/exhibitions/

23 September – 31 December, Ackland Art Museum, Chapel Hill, NC: Drawn to Life: Master Drawings from the Age of Rembrandt in the Peck Collection at the Ackland Art Museum.

A number of drawings by Rembrandt van Rijn, the most celebrated artist of this period, and his pupils, represent a particular highlight of the exhibition. Since drawings are sensitive to light and can only be displayed for short periods of time, this exhibition is a rare occasion not to be missed. https://ackland.org/visit ; https://ackland.org/exhibition/drawn-to-life-master-drawings-from-the-age-of-rembrandt-in-the-peck-collection/

8 October - 8 January 2023, National Gallery of Art, Constitution Ave., Washington, DC: Vermeer's Secrets. Only about 35 paintings by Johannes Vermeer are known today. The National Gallery owns four works by or attributed to this beloved 17th-century Dutch artist: Woman Holding a Balance, A Lady Writing, Girl with the Red Hat, and Girl with a Flute. For decades, conservators, scientists, and curators at the National Gallery have conducted research into this quartet of paintings as well as two enigmatic works that are now considered to be 20th-century forgeries. Vermeer’s Secrets draws on 50 years of imaging technology and microscopic examination to illuminate—and sometimes revolutionize—our understanding of how Vermeer achieved the compelling effects of his paintings’ light-filled moments of quiet solitude. In this behind-the-scenes glimpse, we reveal our findings about these paintings and the artist who made them. We want to share those secrets with you. Hours: https://www.nga.gov/visit/getting-here.html

9 October - 8 January 2023, Cleveland Museum of Art, 11150 East Boulevard, Cleveland, OH: Tales of the City: Drawing in the Netherlands from Bosch to Bruegel is a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition featuring rarely seen drawings from the Albertina Museum in Vienna, one of Europe’s oldest and finest collections. The Northern Renaissance transformed daily life in the 1500s in the Netherlands (an area today encompassing Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg), brought about by the Protestant Reformation, wide-scale urbanization, and the start of the Eighty Years’ War. Partially as a result of these changes, art patronage in the Netherlands shifted from that of the church and nobility to the rising middle class. A selection of more than 80 drawings explores an array of refined techniques, including lavishly colored drawings and luxury objects drawn with ink on parchment, with subjects ranging from hell scenes to mythological dramas. Two stars of the exhibition are Hieronymus Bosch’s Tree-Man, one of the most idiosyncratic drawings of the era, and Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s Sloth (Seven Deadly Sins), an essay on contemporary civic morality. Among several designs for majestic stained glass windows is a rare cartoon (full-scale drawing) measuring almost five feet tall by Antwerp artist Jan de Beer. Hours: https://www.clevelandart.org/visit/admission-and-hours

25 October – 22 November, Biola University Center for Christianity, Culture and the Arts, Biola, Ca: Peace, Be Still: Artists of Faith Respond to an Anxious Age. An in-person juried group exhibition, Peace, Be Still seeks to provide space for artists to explore how their experience of faith intersects with the lived reality of anxiety in their lives and in the life of their community. With an emphasis on the fact that most of us have our material needs met, this exhibition will seek to discover something of the unnamed anxiety within our contemporary world, and how faith may speak to this experience. Mo – Fr, 9 – 21 h. https://www.biola.edu/events/2022/peace-be-still
