Vermeer at the Home of the Dutch Masters, Amsterdam Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) lived and worked in Delft, creating a remarkably beautiful, albeit small oeuvre. The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam assembles 28 paintings for its forthcoming survey, including three canvases recently reattributed to the Dutch master — worth traveling from anywhere to see. February 10 – June 4; Magdalena Abakanowicz at Tate Modern, London During the '60s and '70s, Polish artist Magdalena Abakanowicz worked with woven fiber to forge pioneering sculptures known as the Abakans. This extraordinary installation, "Magdalena Abakanowicz: Every Tangle of Thread and Rope," is organized by the Tate Modern in collaboration with the Fondation Toms Pauli at the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts de Lausanne/ Plateforme 10 and Henie Onstad Art Centre, Høvikodden. Prepare to be amazed. Through May 21; Art Brut + Comics, Lausanne The group show "Art Brut et bande dessinée," organized by Collection de l'Art Brut director Sarah Lombardi and University of Brussels' curator Erwin Dejasse, presents Art Brut self- taught creators who intuitively adapt comic-strip imagery to reimagine an "otherworld of comics." Featured are outsider greats including Henry Darger, Tomoyuki Hirano, Frank Johnson, Daniel Johnston, and Clemens Wild. Through February 26; Thornton Dial, Baton Rouge "I, Too, Am Thornton Dial" is organized appropriately by an institution in the American South: the LSU Museum of Art. Curated by collector/author Paul Barrett, this exhibition brings together the renowned self-taught artist's important assemblages, drawings, and paintings through significant loans from Art to See in '23 LOUISIANA MUSEUM OF MODERN ART, © DANA SCHUTZ THE CONTEMPORARY ART MUSEUM OF LUXEMBOURG, PHOTO ROBERT GLOWACKI the Arnett and Dial families' collections; the former were the late artist's staunchest champions. March 23 – July 2; Dana Schutz, Denmark "Dana Schutz" at the Louisiana in Copenhagen promises a major moment in contemporary painting. Since the mid-2000s, the often- controversial Schutz has distinguished herself as an important narrative talent for our time. This exhibition offers a selection of her most ambitious, large-scale figurative paintings. February 9 – June 11; Peter Halley, Luxembourg "Peter Halley Conduits: Paintings from the 1980s" lands at Mudam Luxembourg this spring. Assembling more than 30 canvases from private and public collections, the presentation includes the artist's rarely seen formative drawings and notes —required viewing for disciples of Neo Geo painting circa 1980s. March 31 – October 15; William Blake at Getty, L.A. "William Blake: Visionary," organized by the J. Paul Getty Museum in cooperation with Tate Britain, reveals an intimate portrait of the 18th/19th- century artist who was the ultimate visionary's visionary. Channeling his poetry, drawings, and paintings through the most imaginative graphic techniques — and possibly creating the most challenging and enduring imagery in British art history along the way — Blake is a talent who speaks across the ages. October 17, 2023 – January 14, 2024; Discovering Henry Taylor, L.A. At MOCA, "Henry Taylor: B Side" serves up the largest survey of the under-known artist's work to date, distilling his social vision and critique through experimental drawings, paintings, sculpture, and installation. Taylor's straightforward portraits of people — friends and relatives, as well as politicians, entertainers, and athletes — have become especially resonant now. Through April 30; Hopper at the Whitney, NYC Highlighting iconic works from the Whitney's collection, including recently acquired materials from the Sanborn Hopper Archive (the mother lode of the artist's ephemera), "Edward Hopper's New York" takes a comprehensive look at this American master's drawings, paintings, and prints. The subject of the show — the lonely city — serves as impetus and muse for Hopper's take on what is now largely bygone Manhattan. Through March 5; Dallas Art Fair co-founder, independent curator, and Elaine de Kooning House owner/director Chris Byrne previews his 9 picks of extraordinary exhibitions opening worldwide in the coming year.
