Crossing Views (group show)
Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris

Parallel to the exhibition A retrospective of Cindy Sherman, Fondation Louis Vuitton presents Crossing Views, a selection of works from the Fondation's Collection which was chosen in collaboration with Cindy Sherman. Echoing her work, the route of the exhibition unfolds across two floors and is centred on the theme of the portrait and its interpretation through different approaches and media: painting, photography, sculpture, video and installation. The exhibition brings together around twenty French and international artists, of different generations and backgrounds. It will consist of around sixty works, many of which have previously never been on display at the Fondation. Works by Albert Oehlen and Rineke Dijkstra are included.

Five Ways In: Themes from the Collection (group show)
Walker Art Center, Minneapolis
14 February 2019 – 1 January 2023
This exhibition, drawn from the Walker’s world-renowned collections, looks backward and forward at contemporary art in our time, showcasing both cornerstone works that have built the collection and works by a younger generation that point to new strengths and directions. The exhibition presents collection highlights within five approaches to subject matter long explored by artists: portraiture; the interior scene; landscape and the observed environment; still life and the everyday; and abstraction, areas that serve as thematic sections for unexpected groupings of works from the collection.
Featuring more than 100 works, the exhibition includes examples ranging from painting and sculpture to drawing, collage, video, photography, prints, and installations. Many of the works on view are longtime favorites for Walker visitors, presented alongside newer acquisitions, many on view for the first time in this context. Works by Joan Mitchell and Rineke Dijkstra are included.

Feelings – Kunst und Emotion (group show)
Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich
8 November 2019 – 4 October 2020
The exhibition "FEELINGS" seeks to encourage this direct dialogue between artwork and viewer in order to stimulate an intense emotional engagement. The works exhibited are characterized by enigmatic motifs and atmospheric visual spaces. Joy, excitement, anger, revulsion, sadness, and numerous other emotional reactions may ensue upon viewing the works. The choice of exhibits is subjective; the art his- torical context and explanatory wall texts have been deliberately omitted. "FEELINGS" wishes to subvert these threshold fears, for intuition represents an essential approach to art. After all, the creation of a work is also based on personal experience. "FEELINGS" seeks to highlight this perspective on art. Works by Rineke Dijkstra are included.
