The Garage’s sixth Atrium Commission is "The Last Resort" by Anri Sala. Responding to the architecture and acoustics of the 9.5-meter high atrium space, the artist has developed a site-specific work featuring thirty-eight snare drums that generate sound in response to vibrations emanating from loudspeakers within each instrument. At the core of the piece is a new rendition of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A Major.

Marian Goodman Gallery is pleased to announce its worldwide representation of Nan Goldin. One of the most important and influential artists of her generation, Goldin has revolutionized the art of photography through her frank and deeply personal portraiture. Over the last 45 years Goldin has created some of the most indelible images of the 20th and 21st centuries. She has exhibited extensively and is collected by museums around the world.

For Goldin the personal is political. Since the late 1970s her work has explored notions of gender and definitions of normality. By documenting her life and the lives of the friends who surround her, Goldin gives a voice and visibility to her communities.

Marian Goodman Gallery will present a series of works by Goldin dating from 1978 to 2016 at Frieze London and FIAC, Paris in October 2018, followed by her first exhibition with the gallery in London in May 2019.

“the last days in Galliate” is the first major exhibition in Italy of the work of Leonor Antunes, conceived as a complex site-specific installation that fills the Shed in Pirelli HangarBicocca: the works, many of which are new productions, converse with the context structural elements and natural lighting, thus merging in a single narrative.

The Shed is transformed by an intervention that covers the floor with a linoleum intarsia, inspired by a design by artist Anni Albers (1899-1994), whose colours hark back to the iconic floor designed by the architect and designer Gio Ponti (1891-1979), realized in 1960 for the Pirelli skyscraper in Milan.

By inquiring into the meaning of everyday life objects and the social role of art and design as means of emancipation and improvement of quality of life, Leonor Antunes creates within the Pirelli HangarBicocca exhibition space a complex and stratified visual tale that leads the visitor through an unedited choreography.

On December 18, there will be a musical evening of two world premières: OCCAM DELTA X by Éliane Radigue, and a new composition produced by Zinc & Copper with Leonor Antunes. Michele De Lucchi, a designer and architect, will discuss the relationship between architecture, design and crafts in regards to Antunes's work on January 10, 2019.

Debuting Labor Day weekend and running for six weeks, “This You” will manifest itself through a solo female singer operating within a score that requires individual variation. “This You” is an outdoor work, designed to sit alongside public sculpture, and the singer will interact with visitors to the Hirshhorn’s Plaza and Sculpture Garden.
