  • Timed to coincide with this year’s Berlin Film Festival, upcoming Manifesta curator Christian Jankowski’s survey exhibition focuses on the artist’s cinematic works made between 1992 and 2015 as well as additional sculptural installations. Satisfying Jankowski's own desire to have his retrospective curated by an actress, the artist has cast German movie star Nina Hoss in the role of curator.

  • Hot on the heels of her retrospective at Paris’s Musée d’Art Moderne last year, Carol Rama, long sidelined by art history, is back in the spotlight. Complementing a selection of her paintings, collages, and assemblages made between the 1940s and 2014, Bepi Ghiotti’s moving photographic portraits show the Italian artist at age nintey-five, just two years before her death.

  • Commissioned by Peggy Guggenheim for her Manhattan residence, Jackson Pollock’s largest work, Mural, 1943, predates the artist’s iconic poured paintings, for which he garnered fame and increased public scrutiny later in the decade. As part of its rare European tour, the freshly restored mural makes a pit stop in Berlin to keep company with photographs from the Kicken Collection and paintings by Lee Krasner and Robert Motherwell, among others, on loan from the Kunsthalle Bielefeld and private collectors.

  • For Warhol, the Polaroid camera was an ideal egalitarian tool because of its built-in flash, preset focal distance, and standard print dimensions that could turn us all into equally glamorous creatures. This comprehensive selection of Warhol’s Polaroid portraits documents the New York underground scene—including artists, Factory denizens, and Studio 54 revelers—between 1971 and 1986.
