Hyperrealistic Sculpture. Almost Alive gives an overview of hyperrealism as a movement over the past fifty years. The exhibition traces this art from the 1960s to the present, but also shows that the depictions of human physicality are always influenced by the respective zeitgeist of their time. This show was initially produced under the title Almost Alive: Hyperrealistic Sculptures in Art by the Kunsthalle Tübingen, Germany. Work by Duane Hanson is included.

No Place Like Home

March 1–June 3, 2018
Museu Coleção Berardo, Lisbon, Portugal
en.museuberardo.pt

In celebration of Dada’s one hundredth anniversary in 2016 and the centennial of Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain in 2017, this exhibition examines how artists have incorporated commonplace household items into their work, removing these objects from the context of the home in ways that subvert the experiences of daily life. This exhibit has traveled from the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. Work by Duchamp, Duane Hanson, Damien Hirst, Man Ray, Takashi Murakami, Nam June Paik, Robert Therrien, and Andy Warhol is included.

Dike Blair
Duane Hanson

August 26–September 10, 2017
Karma, Amagansett, New York
karmakarma.org

Dike Blair’s new oil paintings capture a split second of the observed world with deadpan perception. They bring attention to the banal and transitory details of everyday life, like a view of the sky from a window, the markings in a parking lot, or footprints in snow. Duane Hanson similarly works with the banal and commonplace, but offers people as his subjects. Life size and realistic down to the hair on their arms, their uncanniness is only furthered by their frozen state and the loneliness of their archetypal roles becomes obvious in their stares.

Dioramas

June 14–September 10, 2017
Palais de Tokyo, Paris
www.palaisdetokyo.com

This exhibition explores the diorama as an unexpected source of inspiration for contemporary art. At the intersection of art, cinema, and theater, this cross-disciplinary exhibition recontextualizes the diorama with a renewed approach to the history of spectatorship, including the influence of science and technology on popular culture, fun fairs, and exhibitions. Work by Duane Hanson, Anselm Kiefer, Tatiana Trouvé, Jeff Wall, and Tom Wesselmann is included.
