Guggenheim Museum, New York

Josef Albers in Mexico

November 3, 2017 - February 18, 2018

Josef Albers in Mexico will present photographs and photo collages based on the artist's many visits to Mexico—a place that struck him, as he later wrote to Vasily Kandinsky, as "the promised land of abstract art."

Albers visited Mexico and Latin America nearly a dozen times with his wife Anni between 1935 and 1967. The works in this exhibition, many of which have never been exhibited publicly before, are drawn from hundreds of black-and-white photographs the artist took at pre-Columbian archeological sites and monuments. As the Guggenheim states, "Albers's experiences in Latin America offer an essential context for understanding his paintings and prints, particularly from his Homage to the Square and Variant/Adobe series, examples of which are featured in this show."

The Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York

Gordon Matta-Clark: Anarchitect

November 8, 2017 - April 8, 2018

Gordon Matta-Clark: Anarchitect at The Bronx Museum of the Arts will explore how the artist’s practice introduced radical ways of subverting urban architecture, beginning with the series of “cuts” he produced in the Bronx in the early 1970s. Some of his best-known projects involved laboriously cutting holes in the floors or walls of abandoned or soon-to-be-demolished buildings or, as with Splitting (1974), meticulously slicing a house in two.

The exhibition is organized by Antonio Sergio Bessa, Director of Curatorial and Education Programs at The Bronx Museum of the Arts with Jessamyn Fiore, co-director of the Matta-Clark Estate, and includes more than 100 artworks, as well as film projections and rarely seen materials from the artist's archive. The exhibition will travel to Jeu de Paume in Paris and the Kumu Art Museum in Tallinn in Estonia.

The Brant Foundation Art Study Center, Greenwich, Connecticut

Jason Rhoades

November 12, 2017 - March 1, 2018

The Brant Foundation will present a solo exhibition by Jason Rhoades (1965-2006), including selected works from The Brant Collection. Rhoades is known for his highly original, large-scale sculptural installations, of which the significant examples My Brother/Brancusi (1995), The Grand Machine / THEAREOLA (2002), and Untitled (from the body of work: My Madinah: In pursuit of my ermitage…) (2004) will feature in this exhibition. Writing about the artist’s many influences in The Miami Rail, Lucas Zwirner notes, "On the one hand, there's the chain of associations; on the other, there's the moment—strange and potent—that sparks the chain . . . In My Brother/Brancusi (1995), it was Jason's sudden vision of a resemblance between Brancusi's studio and the compulsive ordering of his brother’s room."

"The negative," Thomas Ruff explains, "was actually never considered for itself . . . It was the 'master' from which the photographic print was made, and I think it is worth looking at these 'masters' . . . [I turned] photographs into negatives in order to see their photographic reality reversed."

Neg◊artist_01, which is included in Ruff's current retrospective at Whitechapel Gallery in London, is among a selection of works being presented in the Viewing Room.
