This concentrated survey of the work of Jackson Pollock (American, 1912–1956) tracks the evolution of the artist’s work from the 1930s until his 1956 death at the age of 44. The Museum of Modern Art’s Pollock holdings are unparalleled in their breadth and quality, and Jackson Pollock: A Collection Survey, 1934–1954 is drawn entirely from the collection, featuring approximately 50 works representing every phase of the artist’s career and the wide range of materials and techniques that he employed. Over the course of two decades, Pollock’s work progressed from mythical, primal figures and scenes; to imagery that combines elements of representation and abstraction; to the radical “drip” paintings that mark the climax of his career. With these culminating works, which envelop the viewer through their monumental scale and allover markings, Pollock emerged

Entitled War Damaged Musical Instruments, the work uses recordings of tones from “The Last Post” on a range of brass and wind instruments damaged in various conflicts. As part of the Tate Britain site was originally a military hospital which treated soldiers injured in the First World War, the work will have a special resonance. This 14-part recording features damaged British and German instruments playing isolated tones from the military bugle call ‘The Last Post’, which signalled to lost and wounded soldiers that fighting had finished.

The Museum der Moderne Salzburg presents a comprehensive retrospective of the work of the American artist Carolee Schneemann. Surveying an oeuvre that spans six decades, the show traces a genealogy of new forms of art that emerge as painting set in motion. Reserving two floors of its Mönchsberg building for the work of Carolee Schneemann (b. Fox Chase, Pennsylvania, 1939, lives in New Paltz, New York), the Museum der Moderne Salzburg mounts a comprehensive retrospective of her oeuvre to pay tribute to a leading artist of her generation. Historians of twentieth-century art know Schneemann as a pioneer of performance art, and her seminal engagement with gender, sexuality, and the use of the body has been a major influence on generations of younger artists. The Museum der Moderne’s exhibition focuses on both canonic pieces and

Pace Hong Kong announces its first solo exhibition of Lee Ufan which presenting his new works. It is the artist’s first exhibition in Hong Kong after his landmark 2011 survey at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and follows his 2014 solo presentation of twelve site-specific works created for the Château de Versailles. The exhibition will be on view from Nov 20, 2015 to Jan 9, 2016 at 15C Entertainment Building. Lee Ufan is considered a leading figure of the Japanese Mono-ha movement, and the builder of its theoretical underpinnings. In the social and cultural upheaval of the postwar era, with its corresponding reflections on values, art movements rapidly emerged around the world, including Minimalism in the United States, Arte Povera in Italy and Anti-Form in Britain, and modernism came under fierce criticism and reexamination of its values. Unlike the ideas and experimental schools then seeking expression in the West, Mono

This exhibition features works that are part of a series entitled First Apple. This series expresses the artist’s ideas about the origin of the world. To achieve this, the artist used the technique of pointillism, reinterpreted and applied over the volumetric representation of the island of Manhattan, considered by many the center of modern world. Manhattan is also known as the Big Apple, fruit of discord associated with the creation of mankind through Adam and Eve. Therefore, the artist chose to represent Michelangelo ́s ‘Tempation and Expulsion,’ one of his most famous panels from the Sistine chapel ceiling, and painted it over Manhattan, a vigorous, dynamic, powerful, changing and chaotic city, a modern paradise. Ramon Espantaleon Gomez (Spain 1968), architect and interior designer with over 20 years of experience, is now a prolific ceramic artist whose exploration in the world of applied arts in the last decade it has earned
