Art exhibitions and events to look forward to in 2021

A dozen museum openings and exhibitions for your radar, from an invitation to Studio 54 and a major Jasper Johns retrospective to the new Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.To get more art in the news 2021, you can visit shine news official website.

As the merry-go-round of New York museum HQs continues, the Frick is relocating for two years to the Marcel Breuer building on Madison Avenue — the former home of both the Whitney Museum of American Art and the now-defunct Met Breuer — and relaunching itself as the Frick Madison.

Despite being only five blocks away from the Frick’s original Gilded Age mansion (now undergoing a $160-million renovation), the rehang of the collection’s Old Masters in its new Brutalist home will feel a world apart. The move has also allowed the curators to rethink their approach, says deputy director Xavier F. Salomon. Works by Spanish artists Goya and El Greco will be shown together for the first time, as will all 14 paintings in Fragonard’s Progress of Love series.

‘Dictatorship at the door, democracy on the floor’ is how Andy Warhol described the legendary nightclub Studio 54. In its heyday, the celebrity-packed hotspot hosted the Rolling Stones, Anjelica Huston and David Bowie, and it is perhaps best remembered for that iconic photograph of Bianca Jagger astride a white horse.

Surprisingly, for all its influence on club culture, it was only open for three years before its co-founders Ian Schrager and the late Steve Rubell were jailed for tax evasion. Now, 40 years on, Studio 54: Night Magic will relive that supernatural mix of high camp and mirror-ball sparkle that brought queues of hopeful party-goers to its velvet ropes.

Curated by Matthew Yokobosky of the Brooklyn Museum, the exhibition is a testament to the club’s queer-friendly, non-judgemental atmosphere, where the only ethos was a fanatical belief in the healing power of pop.David Hockney was 16 when he first encountered the work of Van Gogh at Manchester Art Gallery. ‘I do remember thinking he must have been quite a rich artist. He could use two whole tubes of blue to paint the sky in one painting,’ he remarked — which is ironic, considering that Hockney would go on to become the world’s most expensive living artist.

After a well-received stint at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam last spring, Hockney-Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature is heading to Houston in Texas. The initial show was praised for the way its curator drew comparisons between both artists’ rich palettes and fascination with the changing of the seasons, despite the fact that Hockney’s mammoth canvases — drawn on an iPad — dwarfed Van Gogh’s painterly studies.

It made headline news when Hockney was photographed grinning with his trademark cigarette and the five burly Dutch firefighters it had taken to free him from a broken-down elevator full of journalists, after he had left his preview for a smoke break.

Tschabalala Self has been hailed as one of the most important figurative artists of her generation. Her large canvases, typically patchworked from strips of upcycled fabrics and fragments of her own artworks, explore representations of the black, female body — and won her a spot on Forbes magazine’s ‘30 Under 30’ list in 2017.

Central to the upcoming show is a suite of three new works made in response to Henri Matisse’s Two Women, his only sculpture of two figures. Her reply: three canvases, each depicting a female couple who shift in orientation and appear together, yet solitary. Also on display will be more than a dozen of Self’s most significant pictures and sculptures.

This excellent mid-career survey charts the artistic evolution of the Ethiopian-born, New York-based artist Julie Mehretu, from her early focus on drawing, graphics and mapping to more recent explorations into abstraction. First seen at LACMA and continuing at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta until 31 January, it moves to the Whitney in March and eventually to the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.
