Gagosian Shop is pleased to present the launch of Cameo, a new project from LizWorks in collaboration with Catherine Opie and Cindy Sherman. Founded in 2014 by Liz Swig, LizWorks partners with leading contemporary artists to create one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces and accessories. Taking its name from a tradition of portraiture dating all the way back to antiquity, Cameo updates and reimagines this classical art form for the present day through the lens of photographers Opie and Sherman. A selection of these limited-edition cameos—each hand-carved in Torre del Greco, Italy, under the vision of third-generation cameo maker Gino di Luca—will be available. To attend the free event, RSVP to cameorsvp@gagosian.com.

Andy Warhol bis Cindy Sherman
Amerikanische Kunst aus der Albertina

Through March 29, 2020
Schlossmuseum Linz, Austria
www.landesmuseum.at

Europe’s view of America is influenced by images of the entertainment industry: from film and television to advertising and newspapers. No other nation has placed so much reliance upon the power and impact of pictures and symbols as the US. With more than two hundred works of American art from 1960 to the present day, this large-scale exhibition, whose title translates to Andy Warhol to Cindy Sherman: American Art from the Albertina Museum, aims to illustrate how much our perceptions of truth and reality, facts and fake news, owe to America’s visual culture. Work by Gregory Crewdson, Roy Lichtenstein, Cindy Sherman, Andy Warhol, and Tom Wesselmann is included.

Feelings
Kunst und Emotion

Through October 4, 2020
Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich
www.pinakothek-der-moderne.de

One hundred paintings, objects, and films from contemporary artists invite the viewer to intuitively approach art from an emotional perspective. What does art provoke in us? To what extent does our view of art depend on our personal experiences and memories? This exhibition seeks to encourage this direct dialogue between artwork and viewer in order to stimulate an intense emotional engagement. Work by Gregory Crewdson, Richard Prince, and Cindy Sherman is included.

The Cindy Sherman Effect
Identität und Transformation in der zeitgenössischen Kunst

January 29–June 21, 2020
Kunstforum Wien, Vienna
www.kunstforumwien.at

Cindy Sherman’s work has long questioned issues of identity, including the ways in which it can be constructed and transformed, and elements of fiction. The exhibition, whose title translates to Identity and Transformation in Contemporary Art, juxtaposes Sherman’s work with that of other contemporary artists, including Douglas Gordon, working in a variety of media.
