Art on Screen
Today the National Portrait Gallery in London opens an exhibition entitled Absent Friends displaying paintings by the late Howard Hodgkin. For the first time focusing solely on portraits, the showcase includes pieces from Hodgkin’s private collection and his last work, commissioned by the gallery and completed three months before artist’s death earlier this month.
BMW, in collaboration with Tate Modern, presents ‘a new departure in the concept of the art exhibition’ by offering audience the opportunity to witness the evolution of exceptional live pieces. The BMW Tate Live Exhibition: Ten Days Six Nights is taking place at Tate Modern’s Tanks between 24 March and 2 April and gathers carefully selected line-up of leading international artists. Works shown for the first time by established names, such as and Fujiko Nakaya, CAMP and Isabel Lewis, guarantee six evenings filled with an immersive fusion of sound, installation and performance.
In light of currently displayed retrospective, which gathers more than 250 of Eduardo Paolozzi’s works, Whitechapel Gallery hosts two events bringing the audience closer to the practice of this pioneering artist. Upcoming Magic Kingdoms & Paper Moons symposium and a new performance piece, with direct reference to the famous ‘BUNK! Lecture’, prepared by Anthea Hamilton are scheduled for 25 and 30 March, respectively.
