The first comprehensive survey in the United States of work by Danh Vo will fill the ramps of the Guggenheim’s rotunda, offering an illuminating overview of Vo’s production from the past 15 years, including a number of new projects created on the occasion of the exhibition.

Significant subjects include the legacy of colonialism and the fraught status of the refugee. In particular, Vo has focused on European and U.S. influences in Southeast Asia and Latin America, examining the relationship between military interventions and more diffuse cultural incursions from forces such as evangelical Catholicism and consumer brands. Objects absorbed into the work are frequently charged by knowledge of their former ownership or their status as historical bystanders.

A sustained focus of the work has been the image of the United States in its own collective imagination and in that of the world—a topic that will be central to this exhibition.

The Pérez Art Museum presents Steve McQueen's video installation End Credits, (2012–2016), in which he pays homage to the African American singer, actor, and Civil Rights activist Paul Robeson (1898–1976). An anti-imperialist committed to fighting inequality, Robeson was watched in the 1950s and blacklisted by the FBI—the organization that kept an extensive archive on the Civil Rights leader and mass media performer. During the McCarthy era, the FBI compiled thousands of pages on Robeson, now a public archive which McQueen used to create this video.

 This work shows the significantly censored pages read by male and female voices. McQueen creates a compelling visual composition that brings forth the perverse nature of politically driven discrimination and persecution.

The Saint Louis Museum of Art presents Thomas Struth: Nature and Politics, a photographic exploration of industrial and scientific research spaces featuring 35 large-scale works created within the past decade.

With monumental scale and vivid color, Struth investigates the complexities of sites where human knowledge, ambition, and imagination are advanced.  Technological subjects are interspersed with other recent work including images ranging in the whimsical, like Disneyland, to the grim, like the landscape of Israel’s West Bank.

Conceived as a live performance and performed over four nights at the 2014 Sydney Biennale, Tacita Dean’s film “Event For a Stage” features Stephen Dillane giving a roving, layered monologue that includes segments of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Heinrich von Kleist’s On the Marionette Theatre, and seemingly-autobiographical-though-possibly-invented reminiscences by the actor. Dean used two 16mm cameras as part of the performance, and weaved together the resulting film into a mesmerizing 50-minute work that, like many of her projects, seems to fold time back on itself. Event For a Stage is presented at Metrograph in collaboration with Marian Goodman Gallery and 601Artspace, and in conjunction with “I Can’t Tell You Because I Can’t Tell You,” an exhibition curated by Gabriela Vainsencher, currently on view at 601Artspace.

ACMI presents Eija-Liisa Ahtila: Studies on the Ecology of Drama, a four-screen projected installation on view from 5 December, 2017 to 25 February, 2018. Filmed in the Finnish countryside, a 'human actor' guides us through a series of thoughtful yet playful visual exercises. Using animation and visual effects, we're invited us to consider the way cinema contributes to understanding our place in the natural world. Featuring a juniper tree, a common swift, a horse, a butterfly and a group of acrobats, the work encourages us to imagine how the moving image can be used to explore the experience of non-human beings in this time of ecological crisis.

On the occasion of their 110th anniversary, the Japan Society presents Hiroshi Sugimoto: Gates of Paradise. This show explores one of the earliest encounters between Japan and the West in the 16th century, through the eyes of Hiroshi Sugimoto. Charting the journey of four Japanese Catholic-converted boys, Sugimoto’s new monumental photographs navigate themes of hybridity and cultural exchange, marrying visual traditions from Japanese and Western art. Follow in the footsteps of the four boys and Sugimoto’s own journey in encountering this lost narrative of cross-cultural fusion.

In November, Sugimoto will present a new Noh play at the Japan Society, to coincide with the exhibit.

Anri Sala has created an innovative new installation of sculpture and sound for the 33rd Kaldor Public Art Project, which has been developed over three years ahead of its world-premiere in Sydney. The Last Resort is co-presented with Art & About Sydney. 

Sala’s project will transform the Observatory Hill Rotunda, a site with expansive views from the most elevated point in the city. Audiences will be invited to step beneath a gravity-defying ensemble of custom-built drums, to experience their rhythmic, live response to a contemporary interpretation of a Mozart Concerto. 

For The Last Resort, Sala has reimagined Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A Major, a seminal piece from the Western canon and a musical expression of the European Enlightenment. Mozart’s score is upended, as if it were a message in a bottle carried from Europe across the ocean to Australia, affected by wind and waves. This abstraction of the score’s structure expresses the way shifts of location, time and perspective alter meaning.

The first International Biennial of Contemporary Art of South America (BienalSur) launches this September across 30 cities in South America, Europe, Africa and Asia. Aníbal Jozami, the director of the biennial, said that the inaugural edition aims to “establish a lasting institution that fosters cultural exchange and integration between countries.”

One of the most anticipated works in the show, to be displayed at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Buenos Aires, is a new video installation by the French artist Christian Boltanski called “Misterios,” comprising sound and visuals recorded by the sea in Bahía Bustamante, in Chubut, Patagonia, during the whales’ annual breeding season.

Château La Coste presents an exhibition by Giuseppe Penone, titled Des Corps de Pierre, that will open this autumn in the recently constructed gallery pavilion by Renzo Piano.

Considering Piano’s design, the approach, and the surrounding landscape, Penone has carefully selected works that will be presented both inside and outside the gallery, creating an overall dialogue between his artwork, architecture, and nature. Works on paper, large scale bronze and marble works, and the delicate replication of a single grain of sand are included in a context that brings a poignant resonance to Penone’s interest in questions of nature and identity in today's industrialized society.

The Hilliard University Art Museum presents William Kentridge: Journey to the Moon, a short film that offers an intimate look into Kentridge’s production process, both physically and psychically.

It explores the studio space as a site of performance. In the role of protagonist, Kentridge himself appears, probing questions of vision and creativity. Familiar objects such as espresso cups, saucers and a percolator appear in this quest, as Kentridge aims to escape the confines of his studio and find windows into another world—one that is both absurd and profound.

Journey to the Moon originated in 35 mm and 16 mm film. It was edited by collaborator Catherine Meyburgh and features music by Phillip Miller with piano by Jill Richards.

For the past 21 years, the Prince Claus Fund has honored visionary individuals and organizations for their excellent, ground-breaking work in fields of culture and development.

Déformation Professionnelle offers a new approach to the artist survey, an exhibition format that follows the development of an artist’s career over a period of time. Here, Baghramian has replaced the original invitation to do a retrospective and presents entirely new sculptures that reflect upon and alter her previous bodies of work from 1999 to 2016. Some pieces incorporate rejected ideas or materials, while others explore variations in form. Baghramian is, as she says, “surveying the survey,” pushing the sculptor’s task into new territory with her ever-evolving practice.

The exhibition takes its name from a French phrase often translated as “professional distortion” or “job conditioning,” referring to ways that a person’s worldview can be altered by their chosen vocation. The artist uses the exhibition as an opportunity to take apart her own profession and lay bare the sculptor’s method. In fact, the word “deformation” can also be applied to form, pointing to basic actions such as shaping, modeling, or casting. Through her playful yet critical take on the artist survey, Baghramian unpacks and interrogates the conceptual, physical, and social aspects of sculpture-making today.

Cristina Iglesias has designed a site-specific piece for the Botín Centre and the Pereda Gardens, consisting of four pools and a pond, entitled Desde lo subterráneo (From the Underground).

The sculptural intervention features five structures in grey stone enclosing overlapping iron pieces forming hollow spaces. They evoke the subterranean, the things that exist beneath the surface. Phreatic zones, underground areas saturated with water, pockets of water filled with foliage and molluscs, life speaking of the primordial ocean that gave origin to all forms of life on Earth.

The Theater of Disappearance is a major site-specific installation by Adrián Villar Rojas, commissioned and organized by NEON at the National Observatory of Athens, Hill of the Nymphs.

This commission is Villar Rojas’ negotiation with an archaeological site for the first time as he radically alters both the indoor and outdoor space of the National Observatory. The whole site undergoes a transformation – architectural, horticultural and emotional.

The Theater of Disappearance is an umbrella title and part of four separate exhibitions taking place in 2017 across Europe and the US through new independent commissions by all institutions involved. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (April 14-October 29), Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria (May 13-Aug. 27), NEON, Athens, (June 1-Sept. 24, 2017) and the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, Los Angeles (Oct. 22-Feb. 26, 2018).

Each work will be shown either in the museum's gardens or in one of its galleries. Sehgal’s works, which he calls constructed situations, will be interpreted by male and female artists; the situations are immaterial and fleeting, the thing that truly matters being the viewer's experience of the situation.

The point of departure for the exhibition is This You, a work acquired two years ago for the Fondation Beyeler's collection.

Senza titolo, invisibile, le stelle si avvicinano di una spanna in più, oltremare appare verso Sud-Est, e la luce focalizza...  As is often the case with Giovanni Anselmo’s work, the long title is like a formula, almost a short story, which describes installations that could be considered landscapes to observe while “looking out of the window of our imagination”.

For this exhibition the route he has created unwinds through four elements-works: one work for each space, to give direction and create a tension towards the exterior. It is a route of trajectories and directions, weights and energies which represent five moments in which a meaning is implied: the visitors become participants.

It is a work in progress because it is lived and lives through the viewer. The viewer also creates a new trajectory while walking through the exhibition.

Broodthaers formulated a critical and idiosyncratic position within the milieu of Pop Art, Minimalism, and Conceptual Art, and within a short time, received emphatic acclaim on the avant-garde art scene with the institution-critical, installation, and cinematographic works that have established him as a figure of fundamental importance for the visual art in the 20th and early 21st century. 

This exhibition is organized by The Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid.

BAMPFA’s newest commission for the Art Wall features a work by Lawrence Weiner. Like many other artists who began working in the late 1960s and 1970s, Weiner is deeply interested in methods of display that challenge the assumption that the work of art exists as a discrete object in the physical world.

For his BAMPFA commission,  Weiner considers the specific location and architecture of the site to determine the compositional arrangement of the block lettering, which hovers at the center of the expansive white wall above the Crane Forum’s wooden steps. The text reads: “LAID OUT ON THE BANKS OF A RIVER LEANING TOWARDS THE OCEAN LAID OUT ON THE BANKS OF A RIVER LEANING TOWARDS THE LAND.” The words are set in red banners with ragged edges that tilt slightly, echoing the angle of the steps while also conjuring forms of the natural landscape.

The Moody Center for the Arts presents Nature & Politics, an exhibition of color photographs depicting scientific research and manufactured landscapes by Thomas Struth. The images bear witness to specialized imaginations. Whether it is the technological developments that make space travel possible or experiments in plasma physics, all owe their existence to the ideas and designs of experts and raise questions about the ramifications of scientific progress.

The artist will be present for a panel discussion during the opening weekend when the Moody will inaugurate interdisciplinary conversations about technology and research —important and timely topics of global significance — and how our experience of them shapes our perceptions of the world.

The ICA/Boston presents the U.S. debut of Ashes (2002–2015), a video installation by Steve McQueen. A standout from the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015, Ashes presents footage on two sides of a freestanding screen. One side, originally shot on soft, grainy Super 8 film, shows a young, carefree fisherman named Ashes balancing playfully on a pitching boat against a horizon of blue sky and water. The other side shows a second projection, shot in high definition video, that chronicles Ashes’s unexpected fate. Never seen together, yet linked by a shared soundtrack, the videos conjure an easy vitality and a vivid description of place against the darker forces of society and fate.

Museum Haus Konstruktiv presents a solo exhibition of Cerith Wyn Evans as part of its 2017 annual program focusing on an exhibition block dedicated to British art.

Wyn Evans has conceived a new installation with fluorescent tubes that hang down from the ceiling and have a delicate form derived from the precise formalized movements of traditional Japanese Noh theater. It features a concentration of complex lines that echo the transitions of various theatrical sequences of movements and ways of walking. An additional light work on display is coupled with sound: Here, a selected passage of text, translated into Morse code, is sent to a fluorescent tube that is part of the exhibition space’s overhead lighting. The light blinks to the rhythm of the coded signals.

A preview of the exhibition and conversation with the artist will take place on February 7 at 6:30pm.

The work of Giuseppe Penone will be the subject of the first exhibition of contemporary art at the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, Fendi’s headquarters.

The exhibition, titled Matrice will include some of Penone’s older works such as Soffio di Foglie, a huge pile of leaves on which the artist has left an imprint of his body, Abete, Ripetere II Bosco, and Spine d’Acacia, made entirely of thorns and which resembles the lines of the artist’s mouth. There will also be two new pieces, including a 30m-long horizontal sculpture, formed from a tree that has been excavated and the interior filled with a bronze mold, and which will occupy an entire wing of the building. The outside space will feature a momentous sculpture of two bronze and marble trees.

Danh Vo presents a series of compelling new sculptures as part of his first outdoor installation in the Ng Teng Fong Roof Garden Gallery at the National Gallery Singapore. Vo’s work often draws upon personal experience to explore broader historical, social or political themes, particularly those relating to the history of Vietnam at the close of the 20th century. A continuation of his existing practice, this installation explores issues of cross-cultural identity and the definition of cultural values.

CIMA presents an exhibition exploring the relationship between one of Italy’s greatest living artists, Giulio Paolini, and one of its most celebrated modern masters, the Giorgio de Chirico. Paolini has often expressed his admiration for de Chirico, hailing him as an “illustrious model” and incorporating numerous references to the artist in his own photographs, sculptures, and drawings throughout the course of his career. 

CIMA’s show features an ongoing conceptual work by Paolini, Interno metafisico (2009–16), reconceived specifically for CIMA’s galleries, as well as a series of historical and new works related to various tropes in de Chirico’s paintings. The installation also showcases a selection of de Chirico’s most iconic Metaphysical masterworks, on view in the U.S. for the first time since 1970, including most notably Le Muse Inquietanti (The Disquieting Muses) (1918). The exhibition marks the first time the relationship between de Chirico and Paolini has been explored in depth through a focused exhibition; it also represents the first time that CIMA closely examines issues of post-war Italian art.

Anri Sala has been conceiving a project for Teshima during the past three years, since winning the 10th Benesse Prize. The installation entitled ALL OF A TREMBLE will be exhibited in the Teshima Seawall House, where the video footage of both an improvising saxophone and a shakuhachi (a Japanese bamboo flute) resonate gives the impression of the house as an organic entity, pulsing with life.

The once-abandoned house is brought to life, inviting viewers to reflect on the displacement and lives of human beings as well as to physically experience "the meeting of two different worlds" -- outside and inside, eastern and western, contrasting instruments, ocean and sky, the artificial and the natural, social and private.

Toledo stands above the fast flowing waters of the River Tagus. Its waters were drawn up by the first communities into their fountains, cisterns and baths, and so the settlement flourished.

In making Tres Aguas – A Project for Toledo, her most ambitious work to date, Cristina Iglesias drew from the cultural history of the city, its mingling and layering of Muslim, Jewish and Christian communities who lived alongside each other for centuries in the period known as "La Convivencia" or The Co-existence. The three sculptural works that make up the project bring water to the fore; it courses through channels and travels back into the ground after animating the surfaces of the works so they come to resemble the overgrown bed of some ancient river. Visitors are taken on a journey through the city as they visit each work, from a mudéjar water tower to the city's main public space and then onto a hidden location within a convent, a place not normally open for visitors.
 
Conceived as a journey into the heart of the city, Iglesias' project aligns the hard materials of architecture and the fluidity of water to deliver a sequence of large-scale sculptural works that bring the river back into the body of this historic city.
