A forthcoming retrospective at the Barbican Centre in London shows how Lee Krasner overcame personal tragedy to create groundbreaking new work.
May is a busy month in the art world, and with so many worthwhile exhibitions opening, now is the time to make your visits count. Luckily, Tim Marlow has chosen four fantastic exhibitions worthy of your time. Coinciding with the May auction season in New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute exhibition takes its inspiration from Susan Sontag’s seminal essay "Notes on ‘Camp’" – it’s sure to be a unique, humorous and outright fabulous fashion exhibition. Nearby, the Frick Collection has invited British ceramicist Edmund de Waal to display his site-specific sculptures alongside objects from the museum’s permanent collection. In London, the British Museum is staging the largest-ever exhibition of Manga outside of Japan, and Hermann Nitsch, notorious for using animal entrails and blood in his art, will have a focused presentation at the Albertina Museum in Vienna. There’s a fantastic range of exhibitions this month – something, hopefully, to satisfy all types of art lovers.
In this episode of Expert Voices, Sotheby’s Contemporary art specialist Michael Macaulay discusses highlights from the Collection of Blema and H. Arnold Steinberg, to be offered across a series of sales in New York, beginning this May. The Steinberg Collection stands as one the great private curatorial achievements of the past fifty years, and contains works by many of the most recognized artists of the 20th century, including Pablo Picasso, Alberto Giacometti, Agnes Martin, Helen Frankenthaler, Kenneth Noland and Mark Rothko. Together, these incredible works mirror the progression of Modern art from figuration to abstraction and beyond, providing an exciting and critical reevaluation of how these artists relate to each other and offering a fresh perspective on each work individually. (14-17 May | New York).
