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.
