The C-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the art world due to physical distancing requirements and closure of the physical venues. London Art Fair 2021 has been cancelled and we witnessed cancellation and delay in most of the planned art exhibitions and events. Now when the art world is heavily affected by lockdown and restrictions in many countries, we present the art events that you must not miss if you have a chance to visit them.
1. Tate Modern - Andy Warhol
A new look at the extraordinary life and work of the pop art superstar is extended to 15 November 2020. You can also purchase affordable prints or order online for your home collection. This major retrospective is the first Warhol exhibition at Tate Modern for almost 20 years. As well as his iconic pop images of Marilyn Monroe, Coca-Cola and Campbell’s soup cans, it includes works never seen before in the UK. Twenty-five works from his Ladies and Gentlemen series – portraits of black and Latinx drag queens and trans women – are shown for the first time in 30 years.
2. Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers at the Design Museum London
Lose yourself in a club-like environment and explore 'how electronic music rewired the world' (The Guardian).
Evoking the experience of being in a club, the exhibition will transport you through the people, art, design, technology and photography that have been shaping the electronic music landscape.
Celebrate 50 years of legendary group Kraftwerk with their 3D show. Step into the visual world of The Chemical Brothers for one of their legendary live shows, as visuals and lights interact to create a new three-dimensional experience by Smith & Lyall.
Travel to dance floors from Detroit to Chicago, Paris, Berlin and the UK’s thriving scene; featuring over 400 objects and the likes of Detroit techno legends Kevin Saunderson, Juan Atkins, Jeff Mills and Richie Hawtin, "Godfather of House Music" Frankie Knuckles, Haçienda designer Ben Kelly and the extreme visual world created by Weirdcore for Aphex Twin’s ‘Collapse’.
Discover early pioneers Daphne Oram and the seminal BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Indulge your senses with large scale images of rave culture by Andreas Gursky, iconic DJ masks and fashion, a genre-spanning soundtrack by French DJ and producer Laurent Garnier, a sound reactive visual installation created specifically for the exhibition by 1024 architecture, graphics from Peter Saville CBE, history-making labels and club nights.
The exhibition runs until 14 February 2021.
3. Ulay Was Here @ Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam
From 21 November 2020, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam presents a solo exhibition by the German-Dutch artist Ulay. Although famous for his long term collaboration with his former partner Marina Abramović, in the years before and after, he created a profound and radical solo oeuvre.
Ulay’s work exists on the intersection of photography and the conceptually-focused approaches of performance and body art. This show pivots around four themes that amplify the contemporary relevance of Ulay’s work: his focus on performance and the performative aspects of photography; his research into gender identity and the body as a medium; his engagement with social and political issues and his relationship with Amsterdam.
4. Kandinsky @ Guggenheim Bilbao (20 Nov 2020 - 23 May 2021)
As a pioneer of abstraction and a renowned aesthetic theorist, Vasily Kandinsky (b. 1866, Moscow; d. 1944, Neuilly-sur-Seine, France) is among the foremost artistic innovators of the early twentieth century. This exhibition shows the key role played by this artist in development of other avant-garde movements, from Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) to Surrealism.
5. Asian Art in London - Various Venues 29 October - 7 November 2020
