  1. "Occupy The Future" in Washington, DC
    The Creative Time Summit—the world's largest international conference on art and social change—is headed to Washington, DC! Occurring in the nation's capital just weeks before the 2016 Presidential Election, the Creative Time Summit DC will take this important moment to collectively consider what it might mean to radically transform the current state of democracy.
  2. Staffan Nihlén: Sculpture
    Lunds konsthall is very pleased to open two new exhibitions. One is about Staffan Nihlén and is in response to requests from many visitors. It takes place in the lower galleries. The other is an in-depth presentation of artists' books and is shown in the upper gallery. Nihlén's stone sculptures appear to be both well-planned and instantaneous. It is as if the stone shapes are incubating hidden stories—ones that the artist coaxes out of the stone mass. Nihlén describes how he stopped using ready-made blocks of stone and instead sought out rocks in natural settings.
  3. Issue 38 out now
    Ahead of the major Robert Rauschenberg retrospective at Tate Modern, writer and poet Vincent Katz explores the pioneering artist's lifelong spirit of collaboration. In anticipation of British surrealist Paul Nash's forthcoming exhibition at Tate Britain, Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Inga Fraser, Michael Bracewell and Alice Channer discuss the lesser-known sides to the artist's work, covering his ground-breaking multidisciplinary practice across art, design and photography.
  4. Solo exhibitions by Meiro Koizumi and Cécile B. Evans
    This fall De Hallen Haarlem presents the first museum solo exhibition of work by Meiro Koizumi (1976, Gunma) in the Netherlands. One of the most distinctive voices in contemporary art in Japan, Koizumi engages in social and historical critique in video and performance works that aim for high affective impact through subtle, sometimes provocative manipulation of his performers' emotions. In Today My Empire Sings, he presents recent and new work. The power relationship between authority and subject, and the tension between collective ideals and individual expression constitute major themes in Koizumi's work.
  5. Fall programming
    Garage Museum of Contemporary Art launches its fall program on September 30, 2016 with four new projects that together reveal how artists respond to the social, cultural, and political complexities of their time. The galleries will feature the work of Francisco Goya, Sergei Eisenstein, and Robert Longo, as well as an exhibition of the Slovenian collective Neue Slowenische Kunst. Meanwhile, the atrium of the Rem Koolhaas/OMA-designed museum in Moscow's Gorky Park will host a new installation by Yin Xiuzhen and, for the first time, the Museum's rooftop will become a site for art, with a new commission by Boris Matrosov.
