Bodyscapes (group show)
The Israel Museum, Jerusalem
21 February – 3 October 2020
Bodyscapes studies the concept of embodiment and the corpus as an organizing structure. Examining the relationship between nature and culture through the prism of the body, this exhibition brings together historical sources and artworks ranging from prehistory to contemporary art in a variety of media: works on paper, photographs, sculpture, paintings, video works, and installations. Artists including Tracy Emin, Jenny Saville, Micha Ullman, Maya Zack, Karam Natour, Sigalit Landau, and Ernesto Neto explore questions of proportion, the relationship between human beings and nature, and corporeal and mental boundaries in order to make personal, social, and political statements.
The Israel Museum
Belvedere 21, Vienna (solo show)
6 November 2020 – 14 February 2021
The British artist Rebecca Warren makes sculptures, assemblages, and constructions in a wide variety of materials including clay, bronze, steel, and neon. Warren came to prominence in the early 1990s with her large, raw clay sculptures of extravagantly proportioned female forms. Since then her distinctive and complex oeuvre, blending tradition with the quotidian, seriousness with frivolity, mastery with mismatch, has embodied her attitudes to art and its history. With a preference for ambiguity of form and meaning she has said of her work that "it comes from a strange nowhere, then gradually something comes out into the light. There are impulses, half-seen shapes, things that might have stuck with you from decades ago, as well as more recently. It's all stuff in the world going through you as a filter..." Rebecca Warren’s first solo exhibition in an Austrian museum will consist of older works alongside new works made especially for Belvedere 21.
The exhibition is curated by Axel Köhne.

Phenomena: Art as experience (group show)
Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA), Adelaide
11 July – 13 September 2020
Sense-absorbing installations, optical encounters and moments of mesmeric intensity bring art to life at AGSA this winter. Phenomena: Art as experience firmly anchors the viewer as the maker of meaning. It traces the experiential turn in international art practice, as audiences experience moments of immersion and encounter. As early as the 1930s, philosopher John Dewey spoke of the true work of art existing in the experience of making or encountering art. Uncover large−scale installations and sensory works of art, never seen before in Adelaide, presented as a series of interconnecting experiences. Artists include Olafur Eliasson, Aki Inomata, Jitish Kallat, Yukultji Napangati and Ernesto Neto.
Tracing the trajectory from minimalism to installation practice, with a radical embrace of desert minimalism, Phenomena: Art as experience presents major contemporary international works to South Australian audiences.
