Unfortunately, I won’t be able to visit any of these shows, so I would love to hear what they’re like from you. Please feel free to message me!
Sicily: Art and Invention Between Greece and Rome, The Getty Villa, Malibu, CA - 3rd April to 19th August: Being half Italian, I was always going to be drawn to this!
Overdrive: L.A. Constructs the Future, 1940-1990, The Getty Center, Los Angeles, CA - 9th April to 21st July: This looks seriously interesting; I love a good multimedia show.
Claes Oldenburg: The Street and The Store, Museum of Modern Art, New York City, NY - 14th April to 5th August
Old Tales Retold: Chinese Narrative Painting, Freer Gallery of Art Smithsonian Institution, Washington D. C. - 20th April to 20th October: An exhibition of Chinese painting will also be appearing at the V&A Museum in London this Autumn.
PUNK: Chaos to Couture, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, NY - 9th May to 14th August: Perhaps a little overexposed, but I guess it’s a must-see for fashion/music lovers.
New Harmony: Abstraction Between the Wars, 1919-1939, Guggenheim Museum, New York City, NY - 10th May to 8th September: Featuring works by Paul Klee, Francis Picabia, Alexander Calder and Alberto Giacometti.
Edvard Munch: A 150th Anniversary Tribute, The National Gallery of Art, Washington D. C. - 19th May to 28th July: I caught the Tate’s Edvard Munch exhibition last summer and it was excellent.
Hopper Drawing, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York City, NY - 23rd May to 6th October: A Hopper exhibition needs to come to the UK soon.
The Civil War and American Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, NY - 27th May to 2nd September: That Church painting alone would be enough to make me want to go.
Family Portrait, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA - 8th June to 10th November: Photography is something I have recently become interested in and I have yet to see a photography exhibition that wasn’t great!
Living in Style: Five Centuries of Interior Design from the Collection of Drawing and Prints, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, NY - 18th June to 8th September: I think it is great that this kind of thing is being shown at such a major art museum. Interior design is always so underrated as an art form.
Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity, The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL - 26th June to 22nd September: A second exhibition, Undressed: The Fashion of Privacy, is presented along with this one and runs from 22nd June to 29th September.
