Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, Germany

This exhibition allows the visitor to become familiar with the various faces of ecstasy and with the shifting social significance of mind-altering states as it changed over the centuries. In doing so, it also considers how different cultural spheres handle the phenomenon of ecstasy. With art at its foundation, the show introduces viewers to various ways that artists have approached ecstatic states—including pictorial representations, video, installation works, and kinesthetic experiences. Work by Andreas Gursky, Carsten Höller, and Man Ray is included.

Oracle

April 29, 2018–September 3, 2017
The Broad, Los Angeles
www.thebroad.org

From everyday experiences to protest movements as monumental as the Arab Spring uprisings across the Middle East, to themes that probe systems of social control or examine global commerce, artworks in Oracle tackle the effects of organizational frameworks on global events and private individuals. Some works in the exhibition symbolize marketplace machinations, both official and unofficial, while others are meditations on games, surveillance, vast data sets, mathematical and biological patterns, and even the logic of art itself. Work by Andreas Gursky, Albert Oehlen, Sterling Ruby, and Jeff Wall is included.

The Arcades:
Contemporary Art and Walter Benjamin

March 17–August 6, 2017
Jewish Museum, New York
thejewishmuseum.org

Walter Benjamin’s The Arcades Project is about Paris’s nineteenth-century vaulted iron-and-glass shopping passages. With their labyrinthine architecture and surrealistic juxtapositions, the arcades offer an ideal prism through which to examine the era’s capitalist metropolis. This exhibition will explore The Arcades Project and its ongoing relevance through works of contemporary art representing the subjects of each of the book’s thirty-six chapters. Work by Chris Burden, Andreas Gursky, Cindy Sherman, and Taryn Simon is included.
