Tino Sehgal will be present at the Fondation Beyeler with an exhibition designed as a series of six successive presentations. 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.

William Kentridge’s More Sweetly Play the Dance will make its North American museum premiere at the Cincinnati Art Museum. 

This powerful film installation encircles the viewer with seven screens, on which a procession of travelers passes across a charcoal-drawn animated landscape. The immersive panorama hints at multiple histories, evoking a danse macabre, a jazz funeral, an exodus and a journey. Accompanied by a brass band, the film references medieval manuscripts and the storylines of refuge throughout history.

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.

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.
