Hockney – Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature (group show)
Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam
1 March - 26 May 2019

The major exhibition Hockney – Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature demonstrates the unmistakable influence that Vincent van Gogh had on the work of David Hockney (1937). On view from 1 March to 26 May 2019.
Visitors learn about both artists’ fascination with nature, their use of bright colours and their experimentation with perspective. Hockney’s monumental Yorkshire landscapes play a central role.
The exhibition Hockney - Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature features some 120 works, including highlights such as the imposing The Arrival of Spring in Woldgate, East Yorkshire (2011) from the Centre Pompidou collection, Hockney’s intimate sketchbooks and his iPad drawings. Photographer Rineke Dijkstra created a portrait of the artist, who is now 81 years old, especially for this exhibition.

RE-VISIONS (group show)
Pinakothek der Moderne - Sammlung Moderne Kunst, Munich
28 February - 17 November 2019

For more than four decades Ann and Jürgen Wilde have been compiling their unique collection of modern and contemporary photography, which has been affiliated with the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen since 2010, as the Ann and Jürgen Wilde Foundation. Works by photographers like Aenne Biermann, Florence Henri, and Germaine Krull lie at the collection’s core. The program at Galerie Wilde (1972–1985), which was the only gallery in Germany to specialize in photography at the time of its founding, was also innovative for including female photographers, among them Jan Groover, Marcia Resnick, Gwenn Thomas, and Deborah Turbeville. To this day, Ann Wilde remains particularly interested in promoting and acquiring work made by female artists and photographers. On the occasion of her birthday, the donor is opening her private collection to the public for the first time. Re-visions presents photographs that speak to Ann Wilde personally: work from the 1920s up to the present, made by artists like Johanna Diehl, Rineke Dijkstra, Marie Jo Lafontaine, Barbara Probst, Alexandra Ranner, Judith Joy Ross, Martina Sauter, Eva-Maria Schön, Kathrin Sonntag, and Heidi Specker.
