The black-and-white photographs and films by Joanna Piotrowska (*1985) capture the everyday drama of human relations. The Polish artist creates inexplicably strange and touching images, whose recording of gestures of care, self-protection, or control are as deftly composed as they are psychologically charged.
Remarkable masterpieces by Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Ferdinand Hodler, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro and Auguste Renoir will be on display in new and surprising combinations alongside groups of works from the Beyeler Collection.
The artists featured in the exhibition are Leonor Antunes, Silvia Bächli, Toba Khedoori, Susan Philipsz and Rachel Whiteread. Instead of making a comprehensive group show with numerous works, the exhibition will present exemplary works by a few internationally renowned contemporary artists.
