Jasper Johns: “Something Resembling Truth”
Royal Academy of Arts
23 September – 10 December 2017

In September 2017, the Royal Academy of Arts will present a landmark exhibition of the Honorary Royal Academician, Jasper Johns. This will be the first comprehensive survey of the artist’s work to be held in the UK in 40 years. The exhibition will comprise over 150 works including sculpture, drawings and prints, together with new work from the artist. Johns is recognised as one of the most significant and influential artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and the exhibition will span over 60 years from his early career, right up to the present time, bringing together artworks that rarely travel from international private and public collections. The title of the exhibition comes from a statement by Johns in 2008: ‘One hopes for something resembling truth, some sense of life, even of grace, to flicker, at least in the work.’ Widely known for his iconic images of flags, targets, numbers, maps and light bulbs, Johns has occupied a central position in American contemporary art since his arrival in New York in the 1950s

Subodh Gupta: In This Vessel Lies The Philosopher’s Stone
Galleria Continua, San Gimignano

The project comprises a series of new works – sculptures, installations and watercolours – especially conceived for this show and for the gallery spaces housing it. They explore themes that have always been dear to the artist, and at the same time offer new formal solutions which open up various perspectives of inquiry and interpretation. In so doing, they set in motion a narrative that is simultaneously symbolic, cosmological and enigmatic.

Ettore Sottsass: Design Radical
July 21–October 8, 2017
The Met, NYC

 

A seminal figure in 20th-century design, the Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass (1917–2007) created a vast body of work, the result of an exceptionally productive career that spanned more than six decades. The exhibition at The Met Breuer, Ettore Sottsass: Design Radical, opening July 21, will reevaluate Sottsass’s career in a presentation of his key works in a range of media – including architectural drawings, interiors, furniture, machines, ceramics, glass, jewelry, textiles and pattern, painting, and photography. The exhibition will present Sottsass’s work in dialogue with ancient and contemporaneous objects that influenced his practice. This juxtaposition will offer new insight into his designs, situating him within a broader design discourse.
