In Basel this week? Don't miss Close Up at Fondation Beyeler, on view until 2 January 2022.
This major exhibition surveys genre-defining female artists working from the beginnings of modernism in 1870, up until the present day—a rare opportunity to see works by some of the most influential figurative painters and photographers of the last 150 years in close dialogue.
Close Up focuses on 'the 'artists' gaze, on their personal vision of their surroundings that finds expression in the portraits of themselves and others.'
Including artists such as Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Lotte Laserstein, Frida Kahlo, Alice Neel, Marlene Dumas, Cindy Sherman, and Elizabeth Peyton, the show features many iconic works sourced from private collections that rarely come to public view.
