New Abstracts: Recent Acquisitions

November 12, 2022–September 17, 2023
Los Angeles County Museum of Art
www.lacma.org

New Abstracts showcases an expansive range of practices constituting contemporary abstraction. Many artists working with abstract vocabularies today interrogate not only the possibilities of color, material, gesture, and form, but also the potential for injecting abstract art with political, spiritual, or personal meaning. All of the works in the exhibition are recent additions to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s permanent collection. Work by Jadé Fadojutimi is included.

Can we see the colour green because we have a name for it?

September 16, 2022–March 19, 2023
Hepworth Wakefield, England
hepworthwakefield.org

This exhibition of new work by Jadé Fadojutimi includes large-scale paintings that combine abstract and figurative elements in compositions that vibrate with graphic energy. At the heart of Fadojutimi’s practice is an introspective mining of facets of her own identity and the social and cultural environments that shape them. Her paintings are typically made in bursts of energetic mark making. While some are worked on over time, others are completed in a single sitting, and each evokes a memory or experience.

59th Biennale di Venezia
The Milk of Dreams

April 23–November 27, 2022
Giardini and Arsenale, Venice
www.labiennale.org

The Milk of Dreams, curated by Cecilia Alemani for the 59th Biennale di Venezia, takes its title from a book by Leonora Carrington (1917–2011) in which the Surrealist artist describes a magical world where life is constantly reenvisioned through the prism of the imagination. With works by 213 artists from fifty-eight countries, the exhibition focuses on three thematic areas in particular: the representation of bodies and their metamorphoses, the relationship between individuals and technologies, and the connection between bodies and the Earth. Work by Louise Bonnet and Jadé Fadojutimi is included.

Yet, Another Pathetic Fallacy

November 30, 2021–April 10, 2022
Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami
icamiami.org

The first solo museum presentation of Jadé Fadojutimi’s work, Yet, Another Pathetic Fallacy features a suite of new, layered large-scale paintings that provide a window into the artist’s rapidly developing approach to abstraction. Evoking plants and garlands, microscopic activity, marine landscapes, or stained-glass windows, Fadojutimi’s complex images, which use a surprising and electric color palette,  linger at the cusp of abstraction and figuration.

Mixing It Up: Painting Today

September 9–December 12, 2021
Hayward Gallery, London
www.southbankcentre.co.uk

Mixing It Up explores the work of thirty-one contemporary painters whose works entrance, transfix, and challenge the viewer. Approaching the medium as a platform for speculative thinking and unexpected conversations, the artists in this exhibition make paintings that oscillate between observation and invention, depiction and allegory, illusion and materiality. Work by Jadé Fadojutimi is included.
