Gallery artists participating in the 57th Venice Biennale

Venice Biennale

May 13 - November 26

Gallery artists whose work is being presented during the Venice Biennale include Francis Alÿs, Karla Black, Michaël Borremans, Carol Bove, Isa Genzken, On Kawara, Chris Ofili, and Wolfgang Tillmans.

Francis Alÿs presents new works in the Iraq Pavilion. Karla Black's site-specific installation is part of the Biennale's main exhibition VIVA ARTE VIVA. Carol Bove's participation debuts new steel sculptures in the Swiss Pavilion. Readings of On Kawara's One Million Years are taking place during the first three months of the Biennale in the Oratorio di San Ludovico.

In addition, works by Michaël Borremans, Isa Genzken, and Wolfgang Tillmans feature in group exhibitions throughout the city. Chris Ofili's solo exhibition Poolside Magic at Victoria Miro follows his inclusion in the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015.

A selection of available works by these artists is currently featured in the David Zwirner Viewing Room.

Wolfgang Tillmans

May 28 - October 1

Wolfgang Tillmans's work is the subject of a major retrospective at the Fondation Beyeler. The exhibition is the museum's first comprehensive presentation of photography, and includes more than 180 works by Tillmans spanning 1989 to 2017. The artist was closely involved with the exhibition design, which also features a new audiovisual installation.

The Daily Telegraph's review of Tillmans's critically acclaimed solo exhibition currently at Tate Modern in London described how the work "broadcasts his questing, restless desire to innovate and do things differently."

Gordon Matta-Clark Solo Exhibition in Portugal

May 5 - September 3

SPLITTING, CUTTING, WRITING, DRAWING, EATING… GORDON MATTA-CLARK explores the actions and activities that characterized the artist's groundbreaking practice.

This exhibition includes letters, drawings, photographs, notebooks, and films related to key projects by the artist drawn from the archive of the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montréal, and will focus on the social and creative aspects of Matta-Clark's approach—as he described it, of "making space without building it."

Taking as a point of departure the pivotal series of "cuts" he produced in the Bronx in the early 1970s, Gordon Matta-Clark: Anarchitect at The Bronx Museum of the Arts will highlight the political dialogue inherent in the artist's interventions. The exhibition will include over 100 artworks as well as archival materials and film projections.

Jeff Koons

Featured Work

American artist Jeff Koons (b. 1955) is widely regarded for his bold paintings and monumental sculptures that hold a mirror up to contemporary culture.

Hulk (Yoke) (2004-2014) belongs to a Koons's "Hulk Elvis" series—a body of paintings and sculptures begun in 2004, some of which depict The Incredible Hulk, a character first introduced in a 1962 comic book. Koons describes the Hulk Elvis figures as being also inspired by the guardian gods of Eastern philosophy, and as such they are meant to convey tremendous power and testosterone.
