MAMbo – Sala delle Ciminiere, Bologna
January 31 – May 19, 2019

Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna is happy to be presenting Mika Rottenberg’s first Italian institutional solo exhibition, curated by Lorenzo Balbi. This Argentine born artist who grew up in Israel and is now based in New York is a centre stage player on the contemporary world scene. She will be appropriating the imposing volumes of the Sala delle Ciminiere on the museum’s ground floor to animate ten of her most recent productions-sculpture objects and video installations famous for their sarcastic and bizarre narrative register.

Tate Liverpool
June 14, 2019 – November 10, 2019

Join us for the first, major UK exhibition of artist and activist Keith Haring (1958-1990). Visitors can enjoy more than 85 artworks including large, vibrant paintings, drawings and sculptures.

A part of the legendary New York art scene of 1980s, Haring was a champion of his generation’s counterculture. He was inspired by graffiti, pop art and underground club culture. Haring worked with like-minded artists such as Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. All were interested in creating art for the many. They used new media and public spaces, not galleries to do so.

CITTÀDIMILANO – Giorgio Andreotta Calò
Pirelli Hangar Bicocca, Milano
February 14 – July 21, 2019

Giorgio Andreotta Calò (Venice, 1979; he lives and works in Italy and the Netherlands) is one of the most remarkable Italian artists of recent years and represented Italy at the 57th Venice Biennale (2017). His works include sculptures, large-scale site-specific installations and spatial works that transform both fragments of buildings and entire landscapes; they are often designed to be included in a rich patchwork of self-referencing connections, in part through the use of natural elements dense with symbolic meanings, such as water, light and fire.

Fondazione Prada
February 21 – July 22, 2019

Fondazione Prada presents “Surrogati. Un amore ideale” (Surrogate. A Love Ideal), an exhibition curated by Melissa Harris, from 21 February to 22 July 2019 at the Osservatorio venue in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Milan.

Comprising a selection of 42 photographic works by Jamie Diamond (Brooklyn, USA, 1983) and Elena Dorfman (Boston, USA, 1965), the project explores the notions of familial, romantic and sexual love. Both artists focus on a specific and unconventional aspect of this universal theme: the emotional link between a man or a woman and a synthetic representation of a human. As explained by Melissa Harris, “together, Diamond’s and Dorfman’s work presented in “Surrogati” vividly and nonjudgmentally documents the interactions of humans with their lifelike, inanimate companions.”
