De Pont Museum, Tilburg, Netherlands
29 Apr – 27 Aug 2017
This exhibition is Fiona Banner’s first major presentation in the Netherlands, and comprises sculpture, video, photography, and bookworks. In the vast industrial space of De Pont’s main gallery, Banner creates a theatrical mise-en-scène where towering helicopter rotor blades and re-purposed military place parts become the unknowing cast. The exhibition’s title Runway (AW17) refers to a runway as a space of performance, evoking the architecture of fashion shows, as well as a space associated with aircraft.
Lismore Castle Arts, Ireland
2 April – 27 May 2017
Lismore Castle Arts will present Massimo Bartolini’s first solo exhibition in Ireland. Responding to the unique gallery space that is St Carthage Hall, the artist has created a new organ piece especially for the building. It takes the form of a ‘well’ with a music box inside, playing the first 10 bars of the John Cage work ‘In a Landscape.’ The air passing through the mechanics lends the work a strangely human quality, further referencing spiritual connections.
A new altarpiece by Marlene Dumas for the Annenkirche Dresden (St Anne’s Church) was unveiled on Sunday. This permanent installation has been made in collaboration with Jan Andriesse and Bert Boogaard and comprises multiple canvases in a Tree of Life formation.
