monochrome sculpture of a sleeping girl by Hans Op de Beeck on view at the Kunsthalle Krems

Hans Op de Beeck: The Cliff

Kunsthalle Krems, Krems an der Donau, Austria

March 2, 2019 - June 23, 2019

Kunstalle Krems presents a solo exhibition by Hans Op de Beeck that includes special sculptural installations designed for the exhibition. The Cliff, which is the title of both the piece and the exhibition, is a romantic naturescape in the form of a life-sized sculptural installation. The exhibition includes monochrome sculptures, watercolors, ink paintings, and Op de Beeck's films including Staging Silence (2). Throughout the exhibition, art and everyday life blur into one another; real-looking persons and objects mutate into sculptures in their monochromy. Life seems halted, frozen like in Pompeiian cement, in the wondrously melancholic world of Hans Op de Beeck.

Contemporary Arts Center New Orleans, New Orleans, LA

March 14 – June 16, 2019

Across eight successive galleries, this exhibition presents practices that evolve from the flat plane of the wall to immersive sculptural environments. Staging a performance of material history, spatial occupation, and social positioning, Hinge Pictures: Eight Women Artists Occupy the Third Dimension resuscitates abstract modernist vocabularies, marked by patriarchal and colonial histories, for use in a new feminist formalism.

John Waters: Indecent Exposure

In the decades since, his career as a filmmaker has run parallel to his work as a writer, performer, and visual artist. John Waters: Indecent Exposure is the most comprehensive retrospective of Waters’s gallery-based art to date, spanning more than 160 photographs, sculptures, and works for audio and video produced since the early 1990s.

Sue de Beer: Come Wind, Come Weather

Tarble Arts Center, Charleston, IL

January 26 – May 19, 2019

The Tarble Arts Center presents Sue de Beer: Come Wind, Come Weather a solo exhibition featuring two of her films in concert: The Blue Lenses (2015) and The White Wolf (2018). This installation will take viewers on an exploration of the real and unreal, often blurring the curious boundary between specimen and the observer. De Beer’s environments become extensions of the film, as she asks viewers to not only see, but also be a part of the unfolding mysteries she creates within both works.

a film still by Hans Op de Beeck in an exhibition in Amsterdam at a museum

Hans Op de Beeck: Sea of Tranquility

Het Scheepvaartmuseum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

September 8, 2018 – June 9, 2019

Hans Op de Beeck’s video piece, Sea of Tranquility, is now on view at the Het Scheepvaart Museum, Amsterdam. The fictitious cruise liner in the film was designed by Op de Beeck, following a short residence at Saint-Nazaire, France in 2008. During this time, the artist became intrigued by the remarkable story of this harbour town whose shipyards produce the world’s largest cruise liners. It seemed to Op de Beeck that the Queen Mary 2, then just completed, was, like the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, a suitable metaphor for our belief in spurious values and in such concepts as work, leisure time and luxury consumerism.
