    Marlene Dumas: Skulls, the Albertinum, Dresden
    Marlene Dumas: Hope and Fear, the Kupferstich-Kabinett, Dresden
    19 October 2017 – 14 January 2018

    Two exhibitions by Marlene Dumas will take place at the Albertinum and the Kupferstich-Kabinett, Dresden. In the Albertinum, a series titled Skulls will be displayed. For Dumas, a painter interested in the human condition, the skull motif is fundamental. Hung as a frieze, the work invites viewers to approach the skulls individually, to observe and study them in their singularity and to recognise, eventually, the universal condition that affects every person.

    The Image as Burden
    31 May – 6 September 2015
    Fondation Beyeler, Basel, Switzerland

    The exhibition The Image as Burden at Fondation Beyeler was planned and designed in close collaboration with Marlene Dumas and realized together with the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and the Tate Modern London. Sticking to a basic chronological order, the show traces her development as an artist. On display is a selection of over a hundred paintings and drawings, including several rarely shown collages from her early work and a few very recent paintings. Thus the show provides a comprehensive overview of the artist’s oeuvre from the mid-1970s to the present.
