For her exhibition at the Sprengel Museum Hannover, Rineke Dijkstra will create a dialogue that connects a selection of her works with art from the museum’s own collection.
Her photographs from the early 1990s (such as the "Beach Portraits") will be paired with paintings by Max Beckmann and Alexej von Jawlensky in addition to a number of modern sculptures to reveal an innovative view of the Dutch artist’s specific visual language.
The Stedelijk Museum presents Rineke Dijkstra: An Ode, an exhibition that includes both includes iconic photographic works and highlights her early video work and her return to the medium in recent years.
The exhibition also premieres three works that have never been displayed in the Netherlands.
This exhibition will feature four of Dijkstra’s portraits of adolescents, as well as a 1991 self-portrait that inspired much of her later work. It is timed to coincide with the installation of I See a Woman Crying (Weeping Woman), a three-channel video of British schoolchildren talking about Picasso’s painting Weeping Woman, on view in the East Building’s display of Collectors Committee gifts.
The artist will also be giving a talk at the museum on January 15 at 2pm.
