50 Years of Hyperrealistic Sculpture
The Institute for Cultural Exchange proudly present the exhibition Hyperrealism Sculpture. Ceci n’est pas un corps at the Tour & Taxis in Brussels, Belgium. A comprehensive selection of sculptures by international representatives of the Hyperrealistic movement gives a profound insight into the development of this movement since the 1970’s. The exhibition will be on display from June 25, 2021 to January 2, 2022. Previous presentations of the exhibition, for example in Spain, the Netherlands and Denmark, broke all visitor records.
Sculptural Visions of the Body
The exhibition project Supernatural – In the Same World is designed in collaboration with the Kunsthalle Tübingen and will be presented from May 29, 2021 until October 17, 2021 at the Oulu Museum of Art in Finland. The group show brings together international artists like Isa Genzken, Sam Jinks or Anna Uddenberg who reflect on future body images in the face of genetic engineering and digital transformation. Approximately 30 exhibits push the boundaries of sculpture in the age of the Anthropocene and enable new design possibilities by allowing them to step into the realm of imagination – as supernatural hybrid beings.
Toulouse-Lautrec and the Masters of Montmartre
La Bohème. Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and the Masters of Montmartre the successful exhibition of the Institute for Cultural Exchange is moving to its next venue: From May 9 to August 8, 2021, Toulouse-Lautrec’s extensive lithographic work from the collection of Muséé d’Ixelles will be on view at Kunstmuseum Moritzburg in Germany. Toulouse-Lautrec, like no one else, was able to capture the atmosphere of the Parisian nightlife through reduced, but expressive forms as well as intense coloring. Accompanied by works of Lautrec’s predecessors and contemporaries, like Alfons Mucha, Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen or Félix Vallotton, the exhibition gives a profound insight into the fascinating world of the art poster around 1900.
