The Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen presents Marcel Broodthaers: A Retrospective, an overview of Broodthaers' oeuvre. 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.

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.

For the first time in Scandinavia, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is presenting a major solo exhibition of William Kentridge. William Kentridge – Thick Time focuses on a number of the artist’s distinctive works from the period 2003-2016, among others Right Into Her Arms (2016), O Sentimental Machine (2015) and More Sweetly Play the Dance (2015). Naturally the new acquisition to the Louisiana Collection The Refusal of Time (2012) - a masterly installation first shown here in the spring of 2016 - will also be part of the presentation as will be an entirely new work that Kentridge is preparing specifically for the exhibition at Louisiana.

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 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.

The Milwaukee Art Museum presents Currents 37: Lawrence Weiner: INHERENT INNATE TENSION. The Currents exhibition series brings significant work by living artists into the Museum. Through these exhibitions, the Museum has made key acquisitions that are now cornerstones of its contemporary art collection. 

In 2013, Lawrence Weiner visited Milwaukee to familiarize himself with the Milwaukee Art Museum and to choose a site for his large-scale work. He focused on the Santiago Calatrava–designed Windhover Hall and, using models of the building, designed two installations for the Museum’s grand hall. Visitors who step into Windhover Hall, step right into the site-specific installation featured in this special exhibition.

William Kentridge’s The Refusal of Time—jointly owned by SFMOMA and the Metropolitan Museum of Art and making its West Coast debut—evokes an embodied history of time while exploding the very notion of how we mark its passage. In this immersive installation, synchronized video projections feature live action, animation, and dance; audio feeds incorporate music and sound; and a central kinetic sculpture called “the elephant” breathes in a steady rhythm. 

The Refusal of Time grew out of conversations between the artist and Harvard physicist Peter Galison, and encompasses Kentridge’s wide range of artistic practices and visual motifs, including drawing, film, sculpture, and performance. Allusions to Greenwich Mean Time, Einstein’s theory of relativity, the burgeoning Industrial Age of the late nineteenth century, and South African theater collide as they bring to life a world that is constantly revolving, spinning, and breaking apart, but is always profoundly alive.

S.M.A.K presents Déformation Professionnelle, a solo exhibition by Nairy Baghramian that comprises of a series of new sculptures and installations that build on the key works in her oeuvre over the last fifteen years. For this purpose, she has reinterpreted not only the works themselves, but also the tools and other work materials that she used in making the artworks. In this exhibition, Baghramian in this sense criticizes, emphasizes and stretches the concept of the ‘retrospective’. Through her playful take on the retrospective view, she unpacks and interrogates the conceptual, economic, physical and social aspects of sculpture.

Taking its title from a French phrase that indicates an adjustment to one’s worldview that results from being overly specialized or an expert, Déformation Professionnelle also speaks of analyzing one’s profession or métier: in this case the artist’s method.

Le Ferme du Buisson presents an exhibition that brings together historic works and recent installations of Chantal Akerman as a tribute to her importance in the field of contemporary art.

For the first time in France, the Le Ferme du Buisson is presenting Maniac Shadows, one of her last video installations. In images shot in or from her living spaces in Paris, Brussels, and New York – and in an intertwining of here and there, of interior and exterior – we hear her reading her novel Ma mère rit in which she meditates on her life and the world. Maniac Shadows is at the core of a journey of rediscovery, taking us through unknown parts of her oeuvre, from that first short feature made when she was eighteen to a recent work for radio. This immersion in her personal universe is accompanied by Sonia Wieder-Atherton's cello and an imagining of how to inhabit space.

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.
