Opening: Friday, 25 August 2017 In the work of Jimmie Durham (b. 1940 in Washington, Arkansas), the examination of societal and political topics, but also the issue of the representation of civilising values, historicity and societal identity, are of central importance.

Cheryl Donegan

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.

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…
