Sir Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon, Tacita Dean​, Steve McQueen​ and the Marian Goodman Gallery give their support to the Britain Stronger in Europe​ Campaign. VOTE REMAIN.

"European countries acting together and getting to understand their neighbours needs and attitudes has provided Europe with 70 years of peace, relative prosperity and agreement on many common values that are vital to their mutual well being. The differences in cultures across the wide range of nations have become a source of enjoyment and pleasure, and enriched all our lives. Putting these facts into question is the result of cynical political opportunism and divisiveness"- Sir Tony Cragg​
 
"Whilst I think that there are issues of democratic accountability within Europe, I also believe that Europe has been a strong champion of social welfare, environmental protection, cultural diversity and human rights. I do not think that a British exit would make things better for British citizens. Nor do I think that there is any economic argument for a British exit. I do not want my children's future to be blighted by the  consequences that I believe would follow a vote to leave".- Richard Deacon​

The Kröller Müller Museum presents La Saison des Fêtes, a large-scale intervention taking place in the sculpture garden for the first time in years. It is a circular garden set in a landscape of sand hills. In the garden everything revolves around plants, which relate to festivals from all over the world. There are 45 species of plants; annuals and perennials, bulbs, shrubs and trees, with an eye-catching palm tree among the sand hills. With the flowering of the various plants, the festivals, seasons and months of the years become topical time and again.

Huyghe's work assumes very different forms: from objects, photographs, drawings, films and music to living organisms. La Saison des Fêtes is a self-generating system, for which the artist provided the impetus, but which then continues to develop.

It will be officially opened on July 2, but visitors can already see the garden being laid out.

The Frac Pays de la Loire presents a solo exhibition of Amar Kanwar. His video installation, The Torn First Pages, which projects the spectator in the maze of the dictatorship in Myanmar will debut in France for the first time.

A tribute to the civil resistance, the installation, composed of 19 movies, constitutes a judiciary poetic journey entwining elliptically and metaphorically the activist’s path fighting for democracy. Beyond the social and political observation, Amar Kanwar narrates traumatic memories in order to overcome them.

The Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo presents two video installations of Pierre Huyghe. The video, The Host and the Cloud (2009–10), is a tale, a journey in the mind of an absent subject, conceived as a roleplay and filmed over the course of a year in the disused building of a closed museum in Paris next to the Fondation Louis Vuitton.

Alongside, A Way in Untilled (2012) follows the wandering of a dog with a fluorescent leg into a parallel world of organic decay, evolving around the well-known sculpture Untilled (Liegender Frauenakt), a half lying woman figure whose head is a swarm of bees. Through these documentary films of science fiction, the artist plunges the viewer into a visual and audio odyssey.

Exploring dominant tensions in the history of the Eternal City from past to present, a procession of figures, up to 10 meters high, will represent Rome’s greatest victories and defeats from mythological time to present, forming a silhouetted procession on Piazza Tevere, between Ponte Sisto and Ponte Mazzini.
 
The work will open on April 21-22, 2016 with the premiere of a theatrical event created in collaboration with composer Philip Miller, featuring live shadow play and two processional bands performing against the backdrop of the frieze.

Castello di Rivoli presents the first solo exhibition in a museum in Turin of Giovanni Anselmo. Titled Mentre la mano indica, la luce focalizza, nella gravitazione universale si interferisce, la terra si orienta, le stelle si avvicinano di una spanna in più…, it was conceived in close collaboration with the artist, and unfolds on the third floor of the Manica Lunga.

Anselmo has put together a unique itinerary that enhances the building’s architectural flow and its orientation with respect to the apparent motion of the Sun along the east-west axis. As part of this itinerary, which, overall, actually constitutes a new installation, there will also be some other works by the artist, including a few important ones from the past. The project will also be accompanied by the publication of a scholarly and artistic catalogue as well as a re-edition of the rare artist’s book, Leggere (1971–1972).

This exhibition is curated by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev and Marcella Beccaria.

The Frederick Kiesler Foundation presents Lawrence Weiner - FULL CIRCLE, with a completely redesigned version of his 1999 work for this exhibition. His profound concept of space, his analysis of each specific spatial situation characterize Weiner’s œuvre – here, a bridge to Frederick Kiesler’s work, which revolved around the superordinate idea of an endless space throughout all his life, is built in complete independence. 

For the exhibition at the Frederick Kiesler Foundation, Lawrence Weiner did not only create new wall installations, but is also responsible for the design of the exhibition’s poster and booklet.

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.
