João Miguel Barros

February 22–June 3, 2018

Designed as fourteen separate short stories on different themes ranging from landscape to portrait, Photo-Scripts proposes to take us on a journey of emotions, from the great pleasure of strolling along a beach at sunrise, speaking our secrets out loud, the fear of losing ourselves and not finding the only path we know, or even the challenge of crossing a bottomless abyss, discovering in each photograph a new story, in an exercise of slow contemplation.

No Place Like Home
March 1–June 3, 2018

Celebrating the 101st anniversary of Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain, considered his most iconoclastic work and a game changer in the history of 20th century art, the exhibition No Place Like Home examines how artists over the last one hundred years have transformed everyday objects, subverting their domestic functions and meanings. This exhibition has been organized by The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, and is curated by Senior Curator of Modern Art Dr. Adina Kamien–Kazhdan. It includes works by artists of varied generations and movements, presented in museum galleries transformed into a quasi-home.
Based on the original exhibition at The Israel Museum, Jerusalem.

Line, Form and Colour
Works from the Berardo Collection

March 22–September 16, 2018

This exhibition will present non-figurative artworks that foreground line, form and colour, elements that can be considered the main construction blocks of abstract art since the early 20th century. The iconic artists associated with these components of abstraction include Kazimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian, Joseph Albers, Ad Reinhardt and others.

Pieter Hugo
Between the Devil and the Blue Sea

June 28–October 8, 2018

What divides us and what unites us? How can people of all races live with the shadow of their cultures? Repression or political domination? The photographer Pieter Hugo (1976, Johannesburg), raised in postcolonial South Africa where he witnessed the official end of apartheid in 1994, is especially interested in capturing with his camera all social dissonances, not only in his native country, but also in places such as Rwanda, Nigeria, Ghana and China. He is particularly interested in the subcultures of society, in the gap between the ideal and reality. Pieter Hugo explores all these aspects in his portraits, in everyday scenes and in his landscapes.

Quel Amour!?
October 4–February 3, 2019

What Love!? This exhibition brings together works by artists whose inspiration is love. Love as a source of inspiration, as a motivation, model or just an allusion. Love will be the common denominator of the works in the exhibition, offering an opportunity for the coexistence and concurrence of artists from different cultures and generations. Love will be a unifying force. The selection of artists proposed will be international because the sentiment of Love is universal, although its evocation and the way it is manifested vary in different cultures and civilisations.

John Akomfrah

November 8–March 10, 2019

Purple is an installation on six screens on the Anthropocene, the period that is defined by significant human influence on the Earth’s geology and ecosystems. Following his earlier three-screen installation (Vertigo Sea) created for the 2015 Venice Biennial, Purple is the second iteration of John Akomfrah’s work on the global implications of climate change. Designed as six interrelated movements or chapters, Purple will be choreographed as six meditations on what the philosopher Jane Bennett called "the adventures of vibrant matter." In a poetic tone, he follows the path of Bennett’s injunction for us to think about the complex ways organic and inorganic objects relate to each other in our fragile ecology of the Anthropocene. Combining original footage with archive images from locations worldwide, merging themes from antiquity with modern themes, Purple will be what the German composer Paul Hindemith called a “tone poem”: an elegy to lost time(s) and an ode to an uncertain future.
