BETTINA VON ZWEHL: REVIVAL, NATIONAL MUSEUM OF WOMEN IN THE ARTS, WASHINGTON DC 23 JUNE - 10 SEPTEMBER 2017

Through highly allusive depictions of human and other animal bodies, each artist in Revival connects to the unconscious. Large scale sculptures, photographs, and video installations create immersive, mesmeric environments. Smaller, painstaking fabricated works draw the viewer close, beckoning toward sensations that spark memory and emotion to deliver strong sensorial impact.

Featuring work by Louise Bourgeois, Petah Coyne, Laila Essaydi, Polly Morgan, Joana Vasconcelos, Bettina von Zwehl, and others, Revival illuminates women who regenerate sculpture and photo-based work to profound effect.

OLA KOLEHMAINEN: SINAN PROJECT AT BORUSAN CONTEMPORARY, ISTANBUL 4 MARCH - 3 SEPTEMBER 2017

Commissioned by Borusan Contemporary, this series emphasises the use of light by approaching the rapprochement between the Byzantine and Ottoman architectures from an aesthetic perspective rather than a functional one. Kolehmainen, who researched the effect of daylight in the spaces he photographed, reveals the humanist values in the core of Mimar Sinen's architecture by focusing on dynamic details in his work that ascertain how light transforms the aggregate forms of architecture.

DIANA MATAR: ART, JUSTICE AND TERROR, TALK AT THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM LONDON

17 June 2017 2:30 - 5 PM

A series of talks and panel discussions in response to Edmund Clark: War on Terror. The programme will bring together artists, lawyers, eyewitnesses, writers and academics to discuss how art may contribute to informing social attitudes on matters of justice in a time of global conflict in which laws are sometimes absent.

How can art represent a domestic experience of terror as a consequence of distant war? How can it help us to understand legal procedures enacted upon individuals for reasons of international security, which can in themselves be acts of terror? This afternoon session focusing on Art and Terror starts with a keynote by leading US writer Professor Fred Ritchin and features talks by IWM research curator Hilary Roberts, counter terrorism researcher Raffaello Pantucci, Professor Eyal Weizman, and photographic artist Diana Matar. A consecutive panel discussion with the speakers is moderated by Stephen Mayes, Director of the Tim Hetherington Trust.
