M WOODS Museum proudly presents Nice Dog, the most comprehensive survey of the paintings of Florian Krewer to date and the artist’s first institutional solo exhibition in Asia. The exhibition, curated by Matthew Higgs, is a collaboration with the Aspen Art Museum, which showed the artist's first institutional solo exhibition in the United States earlier this year.
Hurvin Anderson first painted a Birmingham-based barbershop in 2006. Over the last 15 years, Anderson has repeatedly reworked the same barbershop in a multitude of ways to explore key painting styles, shifting from figuration to abstraction, and experimenting with the classic genres of still life, landscape and portraiture. The Salon Paintings exhibition focuses on the Barbershop series as a lens through which to understand Anderson’s wider practice and key concerns of memory, identity and nationhood.
Lafayette Anticipations presents Study For No, the first solo exhibition of Issy Wood in France, bringing together more than 60 works by the British painter, most of which are being shown for the first time.
Arriving more than three decades after his last institutional exhibition in Italy, Pirelli HangarBicocca’s retrospective to James Lee Byars gathers large-scale works, created from 1974 to 1997, in which precious and refined materials, such as marble, velvet, silk, gold leaf, and crystal, are harmoniously combined with minimal and archetypal geometries, like prisms, spheres, pillars, and Baroque-like objects, in a play of symbolic and aesthetic cross-references between form and content.
Perhaps the Truth features work by Florian Krewer and Issy Wood, among others. The works in the exhibition suggest that the truth is not a fixed or absolute concept, but rather something that is shaped by experiences and shifting perceptions. Perhaps the Truth is inspired by the writings of Wallace Stevens (1879–1955) and the late painter and poet Jesse Murry (1948–1993).
