Tomas Saraceno – Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin, September 14, 2011 – January 15, 2012.
Tomas Saraceno, is an Argentinean born artist and someone we have been following and supporting from very early on. His work is incredibly mysterious and diverse and through photography, sculpture and installation he challenges the conventions of art and architecture. He is known for his large scale installations, from his spider web at the 53rd Venice Biennale to taking over the National Museum in Copenhagen with his Biospheres installations. Now he has done it again, this time in Berlin. Cloud Cities is Saraceno’s largest solo show to date and visitors to the Hamburger Bahnhof Museum can now experience and interact with 20 balloon-like installations in various sizes. It`s a very interactive exhibition, where the artist wants you to sit, walk, run, jump or roll around inside his floating sculptural models. It`s Saraceno`s vision of a utopian society addressing important questions about overpopulation, migration and the politics of space and the environment. The exhibition is engaging, fun and visually very powerful and it creates a strong dialogue between people, objects and spaces.

Marlene Dumas: Forsaken, at Frith Street Gallery, London, 14 October 2011 – 26 November 2011
We are excited to welcome back South African born artist Marlene Dumas to London for her first UK solo exhibition since 2004. The artist will be exhibiting 20 new paintings at the Frith Street Gallery in Golden Square, London. Dumas is known for her oil, watercolour and ink portraits based on photographs that she collects from newspapers, magazines and other sources. The exhibition titled Forsaken will be works ranging from The Crucifixion to images of famous as well as infamous contemporary figures. Her portrait paintings can almost be frightening and ghostly to look at, yet the effect of the work is very erotic and beautiful with a sublime magic. The works stand on their own and provoke and touch upon concerns like society, sex, morality, change and female beauty. Frith Street is really a great gallery and we are looking forward to this exhibition.

Jacob Kassey: ICA, London, 12 October 2011 – 13 November 2011
Young American artist Jacob Kassey (b.1984) will have his first solo European show at the ICA in London. Presenting Kassey’s exploration of monochromatic painting and installation, his work is hugely engaging, drawing the viewer into his environment. In situ the works come alive with the presence of the audience and the ever-changing light of the gallery space, and is often sensual and playful. This is a great opportunity to get a critical view of Kassey’s body of work to date and the exhibition is definitely not to be missed.

Takashi Murakami: Galerie Perrotin, Paris, 20 October 2011 – 07 January 2012
Japan’s biggest export artist, Murakami, has two exhibitions coming up. His exhibition ‘Hommage to Yves Klein’ at his Paris gallery Perrotin, will show his new monochromes. The exhibition is a ‘warm up’ to his massive exhibition in Doha, later next year. The artist has created new environments to display his work, the details are yet to be revealed, but it will undoubtedly be a fantastic experience. Murakami has his own unique style; it`s beautifully executed, visually appealing and there is an element of adventure and Japanese-ness to the work. Get ready for the great and amazing world of Takashi Murakami.

Daniel Turner: Journal Gallery, New York, September 19 – October 23 2011
The Journal is the gallery to watch right now in New York and it`s currently showing Daniel Turner`s installation `Mariana`. The artist has transformed the gallery space into an abstract painting by rubbing steel wool against the surface leaving traces of grey clouds and creating a very subtle, minimal and beautiful work. The gallery shows a great selection of artists from Joe Bradley to Ida Eklbad, it is experimental, progressive and a great place to discover new talent.
