Edward Burtynsky

“I’m finding new visual resonances emerging while photographing in Africa. As I evolve my use of the aerial perspective, in these recent pictures I am surveying two very distinct aspects of the landscape: that of the earth as something intact, undisturbed yet implicitly vulnerable… and that of the earth as opened up by the systematic extraction of resources.”Edward Burtynsky Flowers Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Edward Burtynsky produced across the African continent between 2015-19. Burtynsky’s works chronicle the major themes of terraforming, extraction, agriculture and urbanization, developing a long-standing preoccupation with the unsettling reality…

Fernando Botero

The exhibition featuring over a dozen works on canvas, works on paper and sculptures of Colombian contemporary artist Fernando Botero. A multifaceted artist, influenced by the Italian Renaissance as well as pre-Columbian Art and Folklore from his native country, Botero developed his own style, distinguishable from any other artistic movement. Using irony, emotion and ingenuity, Botero shattered forms and abolished proportions by distorting volume. His characters and objects have rounded elephantine shapes with generous, voluptuous and sensual but with precise details. Botero has actively created for over seventy years an original and unique body of work. View More Opera Gallery Geneva Pl.…

Manolo Valdés, Paris. Opera Gallery

Opera Gallery Paris is pleased to present Manolo Valdés – Recent works on view until 13 October 2022 In this new opus, sculpture is the predominant medium, further pushing the boundaries of representation. The feminine heads with refined, pared down faces whose features are more suggested than actually present, tend to lose their identity. Manolo Valdés plays with an array of materials such as wood, steel, resin, and glass, at times combining them. Pieces of a rare elegance emerge through these fragmented assemblages contributing to the creation of a new form of polychrome.

Sean Kelly is delighted to return to Frieze London with a presentation of works highlighting the gallery’s international roster of artists. Our booth will feature works from Marina Abramović’s series The Lovers, which document the similarly titled performance by Abramović and Ulay in 1988, during which the two artists walked from either end of the Great Wall of China toward each other until they met in the middle. Anthony Akinbola’s signature Camouflage paintings explore the du-rag as both a material for art-making and as commentary on larger issues of identity, respectability, and the commodification of African American culture. Dawoud Bey’s recent series, In This Here Place, focuses on plantations in…

General Idea

The Drawing Center, in partnership with Musée d’art moderne et contemporain Geneva (MAMCO), will bring together the drawings of General Idea authored between 1985 and 1993 for the first time in the United States, and again in Geneva in February 2023. Investigating motifs in the group’s multimedia works such as poodles, stiletto heels, masks, heraldry, and metamorphosed genitalia, these drawings were primarily produced by Jorge Zontal during group meetings. However, given General Idea’s mandate for co-authorship, as well as the circumstances under which they were executed, the drawings are considered to be collaborative. Although they are done entirely by hand, the repetition…
