26 August - 19 November
Kunsthalle Zürich, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Opening: Friday, August 25, 2017 The exhibition at Kunsthalle Zürich will be the first comprehensive presentation of Cheryl Donegan’s work in Europe.

If there is an ostensible and assumed lack of professionalism, it offers, in the context of painting, an alternative to marketable virtuosity, generic abstraction, and banal references. We face an oeuvre of “as if” exploring the challenging relationship between thinking…

John Russell

26 August - 19 November
Kunsthalle Zürich, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Opening: Friday, August 25, 2017 John Russell restages ideas of total hybridity of gender, nature, man and beast in his films, images, books, and installations ranging from real to virtual and fictional filtered through literature, theory, religion, and art. His fictions emerge in the middle of anarchy, vacuum, dystopia, where everything is possible and our lives mere networks.

Praised and ridiculed French painting 1820 – 1880

10 November 2017 - 28 January 2018
Kunsthaus, Heimplatz 1, 8001 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Romanticism, Realism, Naturalism, ‘plein air’ painting, Impressionism – these are still the main stylistic labels attached in the German-speaking world to French painting of the 19th century. The artists working in those styles – figures such as Géricault, Delacroix, Corot, Daumier, Millet, Courbet, Manet, Sisley, Monet and Renoir – turned their backs on the officially sanctioned painting of the era, with its academic and neoclassicist style. Yet despite their revolutionary approaches, many of them still adhered to tradition. Highly controversial…
