Lee Mingwei’s artistic practice is primarily concerned with rituals of giving and receiving. From 27 March to 7 June 2020, the Gropius Bau will present a solo exhibition by the artist, showing his installations and performances from the last three decades. Central to the exhibition is an exploration of art’s potential to be a transformative gift.
Artists: Auguste Rodin, Rebecca Horn, Jan Cossiers, Caspar David Friedrich, Anselm Kiefer, Francisco de Goya, Jorinde Voigt, Tino Sehgal, Guido van der Werve, A. Erkmen, Idris Khan, J.M.W. Turner, John Baldessari
Over the past five decades, the US-American artist Barbara Kasten (b. 1936, lives and works in Chicago), who can be described as an artist’s artist, has created an impressive oeuvre, at the core of which are her abstract photographs.
The presentation focuses on five artists: Edgar Degas (1834–1917), Auguste Rodin (1840–1917), Medardo Rosso (1858–1928), Paolo Troubetzkoy (1866–1936) and Rembrandt Bugatti (1884–1916). With their works, they are representative for the fundamental question of the existence of an Impressionist style of sculpture and, at the same time, serve as prototypes for a cross-media artistic work in painting and sculpture.
In 1551, Prince Philip of Spain, the future King Philip II, commissioned Titian, the most famous painter in Europe, to produce a group of paintings showing Classical myths primarily taken from the Roman poet Ovid’s ‘Metamorphoses’. The exhibition reunites all six paintings in the series, from Boston, Madrid, and London, for the first time in over four centuries. Included are ‘Diana and Actaeon’ and ‘Diana and Callisto’; works we own jointly with the National Galleries of Scotland.
This major retrospective is the first Warhol exhibition at Tate Modern for almost 20 years. As well as his iconic pop images of Marilyn Monroe, Coca-Cola and Campbell’s soup cans, it includes works never seen before in the UK. Twenty-five works from his Ladies and Gentlemen series – portraits of black and Latinx drag queens and trans women – are shown for the first time in 30 years. Visitors can also play with his floating Silver Clouds and experience the psychedelic multimedia environment of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable.
This exhibition will present the kimono as a dynamic and constantly evolving icon of fashion, revealing the sartorial, aesthetic and social significance of the garment from the 1660s to the present day, both in Japan and the rest of the world.

Hungary’s largest-scale photography show, the BUDAPEST PHOTO FESTIVAL 2020, celebrates photographic art for the fourth time with its series of events to run in the MŰCSARNOK from 28 February. This time the Festival opens with an exhibition where visitors can enter a magical pictorial world on the borderline of fine art and photography, fiction and reality.
In her art, Lounila examines contemporary life through the experience and recording of time. The new exhibition features videos, sound installations, assemblages, neon work and a VR piece. Characterised by a calculated aloofness and technical precision, the works nevertheless contain a sense of nostalgia and timelessness. They are inspired by the artist’s travels and nature experiences and more broadly by popular culture and visual art.
Ed Atkins’ video works are fascinated by our relationship with contemporary technologies of representation and how they variously exceed or fail in their attempt to sufficiently capture us. His works employ both found and custom-made digital materials, united by music and anxiety.
