21 Oktober – 29 Januar, Neue Galerie Graz, Joanneumsviertel, Graz: BRUSEUM. Der lang gehegte Wunsch der Neuen Galerie Graz, für den weltbekannten steirischen Künstler Günter Brus ein Brus-Museum innerhalb des Hauses zu schaffen, das so genannte BRUSEUM, konnte 2008 durch einen großen Sammlungsankauf auf Initiative des damaligen Kulturreferenten des Landes Steiermark, Dr. Kurt Flecker, realisiert werden.

10 July 2020 - 21 March 2024, M Leuven, Leopold Vanderkelenstraat 28, Leuven: Moved. The new collection presentation introduces the visitor to forgotten customs based on extraordinary religious objects that were intended to be both moved and moving. You see the extensive wardrobe and silver accessories of a statue that was carried in procession, but also a house altar, valuable reliquaries and special cultic objects. Often fragile, tactile, precious and the work of skilled craftspeople, each of these intriguing pieces was made to be touched and moved but also to move people spiritually. Through personal testimonies and historical images, the presentation brings old rituals back to life. At the same time, these historical traditions are juxtaposed with contemporary forms of veneration and worship. And the link with Leuven is never far away: the majority of the exhibited objects come from important churches and historical sites in Leuven. Th, 11 – 22 h, fr – tu, 11 – 18 h.

14 Oktober – 15 Januar 2023, Dom Museum, Domplatz, Frankfurt am Main: Hans Leistikow (1892-1962): Zurück in die Moderne. Vor siebzig Jahren entstanden die immer noch modern anmutenden Fenster des Frankfurter Doms. Dass ihr Schöpfer Hans Leistikow war, in den 1920er Jahren der wichtigste Graphiker im Neuen Frankfurt, ist heute fast vergessen. Die Geschichte der Domfenster wurde zum Anlass einer Wieder- und Neuentdeckung: In unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft zu seinem größten Werk zeichnet das Dommuseum Frankfurt mit vielen Arbeiten aus dem künstlerischen Nachlass, aus öffentlichen und privaten Sammlungen, Leben und Werk des bedeutenden Gestalters und Lehrers in einer Zeit voller Umbrüche nach. Öffnungszeiten:

28 Oktober – 26 Februar, Wallraf-Richartz-Museum, Obenmarspforten 40, Köln: Susanna. Bilder einer Frau vom Mittelalter bis Metoo. Mit der weltweit ersten Ausstellung zur biblischen Susanna in der Kunst widmet sich das Wallraf-Richartz-Museum in diesem Winter einer Erzähl- und Bildtradition, die auch vor dem Hintergrund der MeToo-Bewegung kaum aktueller sein könnte: „SUSANNA - Bilder einer Frau vom Mittelalter bis MeToo“ zeigt eindrucksvoll, wie Machtmissbrauch und sexualisierte Gewalt schon seit Jahrhunderten in Malerei und Graphik verhandelt werden. Die biblische Erzählung von der Nötigung der Susanna durch zwei alte Richter übt schon seit der Spätantike großen Einfluss auf die Kunst aus. Die Kölner Sonderausstellung belegt dies mit hochklassigen Werken von u.a. Artemisia Gentileschi, Anthonis van Dyck, Rembrandt, Eugène Delacroix, Édouard Manet und Lovis Corinth sowie beeindruckenden Arbeiten von zeitgenössischen Künstlerinnen wie Kathleen Gilje, Heike Gallmeier und Zoe Leonard. Öffnungszeiten:

30 September – 8 January 2023, Frans Hals museum, Groot Heiligland 47, Haarlem: Newcomers. Flemish Artists in Haarlem 1580-1630. Flemish artists raised art to new heights in Haarlem. In the upcoming exhibition at the Frans Hals Museum, Newcomers, you can discover through the life and work of six famous artists, how art and the city changed forever around 1600. Leading figures include Frans Hals, Karel van Mander and Lieven de Key. While their achievements were unique, and each had their own story, they all came from a similar background: their roots lay in Flanders and Brabant. So, what motivated them, and what drew them to Haarlem? Many people moved from the Southern Netherlands to Haarlem between 1580 and 1630. These Flemish newcomers – artisans, traders and artists – had to start afresh in a city that was totally new to them. With their expertise, capital and talent, they enabled art to flourish in Haarlem. And their impact can still be seen to this day. The exhibition also includes work by contemporary artists, providing insight into the modern migration phenomenon. Hours:

8 September – 11 December, Diverse Orte in Basel und Region: Sakrale Zeiten? – Zeitgenössische Kunst in sakralen Räumen und im städtischen Raum. In dieser Zeit werden wir alle mit Sinnfragen konfrontiert. Wir alle sind aufgerufen, uns intensiver mit der Vielfalt von Meinungen und Ansichten, aber auch mit der Bedeutung und der Endlichkeit des Lebens auseinanderzusetzen. Es ist nötig, sowohl über Toleranz als auch Ausgrenzung nachzudenken. Gedanken über Vergänglichkeit und Spiritualität erhalten gerade jetzt mehr Raum und Bedeutung. Vieles wird hinterfragt, was uns bis anhin klar und eindeutig erschien. Diese Sinnfragen beschäftigen auch viele Künstlerinnen und Künstler in ihrer Arbeit. In diesem Kontext plante die Basler Künstler:innengesellschaft ein Kunstprojekt, das zu einem Dialog über Philosophie, Glaube, Rationalität zum einen, aber auch zu universellen Fragen einlädt. 50 Veranstaltungen mit Tanz, Musik, Performance, Literatur, Film, Atelier, Workshop, Diskussionsrunden, Führungen, Predigtreihen / 22 Veranstaltungs- und Ausstellungsorte in den Kantonen Basel Stadt und Basel Land / Eröffnungsanlass: Do, 8.

30 November  – 25 January 2023, Dal Schindell Gallery, Regent College, 5800 University Blvd, Vancouver: Paul Spilsbury: Chasing the Light. Watercolour painting, like life, is all about chasing the light. Light through water, light on paper, light in pigment. This exhibit evokes the quest to capture, depict, and understand the elusiveness of light using the classic elements of line, shape, value, and colour on paper, to depict the wild, welcoming landscape of British Columbia’s west coast. It also invites us to explore the greater Light behind every work of creation, the Light that inspires, inhabits, supports, sustains, and sources all that is real.

18 September – 31 December 2022, Timken Museum of Art, 1500 El Prado, San Diego, California: Exchanging Words: Women and Letters in Seventeenth-Century Dutch Genre Painting. Women and letters feature prominently in Dutch genre paintings from the second half of the seventeenth century. Captivating images show women reading, writing, and receiving letters, often in the company of books, and exchanging ideas with present or absent companions. Although the contents of these missives are rarely legible, they invite curiosity and contemplation, drawing the beholder into intimate, domestic spaces. Such scenes emphasize women’s engagement with the written word and demonstrate a remarkable interest in representing their intellectual lives. We – Su, 10 – 17 h.

23 September – 31 December, Ackland Art Museum, Chapel Hill, NC: Drawn to Life: Master Drawings from the Age of Rembrandt in the Peck Collection at the Ackland Art Museum.

A number of drawings by Rembrandt van Rijn, the most celebrated artist of this period, and his pupils, represent a particular highlight of the exhibition. Since drawings are sensitive to light and can only be displayed for short periods of time, this exhibition is a rare occasion not to be missed. ;

8 October - 8 January 2023, National Gallery of Art, Constitution Ave., Washington, DC: Vermeer's Secrets. Only about 35 paintings by Johannes Vermeer are known today. The National Gallery owns four works by or attributed to this beloved 17th-century Dutch artist: Woman Holding a Balance, A Lady Writing, Girl with the Red Hat, and Girl with a Flute. For decades, conservators, scientists, and curators at the National Gallery have conducted research into this quartet of paintings as well as two enigmatic works that are now considered to be 20th-century forgeries. Vermeer’s Secrets draws on 50 years of imaging technology and microscopic examination to illuminate—and sometimes revolutionize—our understanding of how Vermeer achieved the compelling effects of his paintings’ light-filled moments of quiet solitude. In this behind-the-scenes glimpse, we reveal our findings about these paintings and the artist who made them. We want to share those secrets with you. Hours:

9 October - 8 January 2023, Cleveland Museum of Art, 11150 East Boulevard, Cleveland, OH: Tales of the City: Drawing in the Netherlands from Bosch to Bruegel is a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition featuring rarely seen drawings from the Albertina Museum in Vienna, one of Europe’s oldest and finest collections. The Northern Renaissance transformed daily life in the 1500s in the Netherlands (an area today encompassing Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg), brought about by the Protestant Reformation, wide-scale urbanization, and the start of the Eighty Years’ War. Partially as a result of these changes, art patronage in the Netherlands shifted from that of the church and nobility to the rising middle class. A selection of more than 80 drawings explores an array of refined techniques, including lavishly colored drawings and luxury objects drawn with ink on parchment, with subjects ranging from hell scenes to mythological dramas. Two stars of the exhibition are Hieronymus Bosch’s Tree-Man, one of the most idiosyncratic drawings of the era, and Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s Sloth (Seven Deadly Sins), an essay on contemporary civic morality. Among several designs for majestic stained glass windows is a rare cartoon (full-scale drawing) measuring almost five feet tall by Antwerp artist Jan de Beer. Hours:

16 October – 23 January, Denver Art Museum, 100 W 14th Ave. Pkwy., Denver, Co: Saints, Sinners, Lovers, and Fools: 300 Years of Flemish Masterworks.

This unique presentation of medieval, renaissance, and baroque paintings, sculptures, and other objects from the Southern Netherlands includes masterpieces by, among many others, Hans Memling, Jan Gossaert, Jan and Catharina van Hemessen, Peter Paul Rubens, Jacob Jordaens, and Anthony van Dyck. The exhibition offers a look into the specific subjects and styles adopted by artists in the Southern Netherlands between the fifteenth- to seventeenth centuries, providing important connections to the society and culture of the time. These works depict a rapidly-changing world through unique styles, subjects, and techniques, offering insight into the past and the chance to create parallels to our world today. Hours:

29 October – 22 December, Barrington Center for the Arts, 255 Grapevine Road, Wenham, MA: Sandra Bowden is showing her series "Reflections of Glory" at the Gordon College Art Gallery. The series carries out a conversation of connections to pay homage to major icons of European painting. Bowden’s gilded encaustic panels refer to distinct shapes of historic work (for example, Roger van der Weyden’s Deposition), but because of their solid gold surface, allow the viewer to delight in the radiance of each panel, while drawing on memory and imagination to fill in the forms. Mo – sa, 9 – 17 h.
