Chris Ofili: Weaving Magic

April 26 - August 28

Weaving Magic presents a handwoven tapestry reflecting Chris Ofili's interest in classical mythology and the stories, magic, and colors of Trinidad, where he has lived since 2005. Commissioned by the British Clothworkers' Company, The Caged Bird’s Song was made in collaboration with Dovecot Tapestry Studio in Edinburgh. After the exhibition, the tapestry will go on permanent display in the Clothworkers' Hall in London.

Special event, May 8, 1 PM
Talk by exhibition curator Minna Moore Ede

Congratulations to Kerry James Marshall who has been chosen for the TIME 100 list.

Following Yayoi Kusama in 2016 and Chris Ofili in 2015, 2017 marks the third consecutive year gallery artists have been selected for this annual list, which represents the 100 individuals TIME considers the "most influential people in the world" and includes "pioneers, artists, leaders, titans, and icons."

Toba Khedoori

April 21 - September 24

Traveling from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Toba Khedoori is the artist's first museum survey exhibition in fifteen years.

Organized by Franklin Sirmans, former LACMA curator and head of contemporary art prior to his appointment as Director of the Pérez Art Museum, the exhibition surveys over 20 years of Khedoori's work. Included are large-scale early works on paper, as well as oil paintings on canvas that the artist has been creating in recent years. For Sirmans, Khedoori's "attention to detail, her surrealist wit, and her appreciation for the magic of the everyday remind us to take stock of what surrounds us."

Four gallery artists are participating in the 57th Venice Biennale

Venice Biennale

May 13 - November 26

Gallery artists participating in the 57th Venice Biennale include Francis Alÿs, Karla Black, Carol Bove, and On Kawara.

Francis Alÿs will show new works in the exhibition Archaic in the Iraqi National Pavilion. Commissioned by The Ruya Foundation, his project explores the role of the artist at the frontline of war. For the Swiss Pavilion, Carol Bove will present new steel works responding to the legacy of Alberto Giacometti.

Karla Black, who represented Scotland in 2011, will create an environment on site in the Arsenale made from a combination of everyday materials including powder, soap, and pastes, along with plaster, chalk, and paper. A durational reading of On Kawara's One Million Years (1969-1981) will be performed in the Oratorio di San Ludovico during the first three months of the biennale.

Michael Riedel: CV

May 20 - August 13

CV is a major solo exhibition of Michael Riedel's work at the Kunsthalle Zürich.

The exhibition is based on the Curriculum Vitae or résumé as a highly stylized form of self-presentation. The idea of re-entry and repetition, particularly as it applies to artworks which compose an artist's career and that may be shown again and again, is central to the exhibition.

As Riedel explains in a recent interview with Mousse magazine: "Whenever I do a show, I get an automatic reply: a new note in my CV. This creates new text material for me to work with that will end up in the paintings or installations I'm making. This kind of irritation, this performative paradox, interests me."

CV is accompanied by an artist book featuring a text by Riedel and views of the exhibition. A selection of works by Riedel is currently featured in the Viewing Room.

Raymond Pettibion's tenth solo exhibition with the gallery TH' EXPLOSIYV SHOYRT T (April 29 - June 24) includes new drawings and collages—a relatively new introduction within the artist's oeuvre—in his characteristic bold style.

Most of Pettibon's works pair image and text, with each informing the other in a circular fashion. Ranging from a few words to a number of paragraphs, the often rhythmic prose reflects the artist's longstanding interest in poetry and philosophy.
