Level 3 Gallery Lounge

How Not to Be Seen features works by a roster of artists from Canada and abroad, including Brook Andrew, Zach Blas, Sandra Brewster, Charles Campbell, Nick Cave, David Garneau, Sondra Perry, Amalia Pica, Hito Steyerl, and Haegue Yang. These artists employ strategies either to abstract the self or to use opacity and withdrawal as forms of resistance to these networks of exploitation. From various perspectives and with a range of approaches, these artists all interrupt the expectation that art makes things visible for everyone to see, creating instead new spaces of shelter, protection, and community.

Life in Print: William Kentridge and Pablo Picasso brings together two of the most prolific and innovative artists of the 20th and 21st centuries: Pablo Picasso and William Kentridge. Remai Modern is thrilled to present Kentridge’s Universal Archive alongside selections from Remai Modern’s comprehensive holding of Picasso’s linocuts. The exhibition highlights remarkable parallels between the two artists including a prolific practice, multi-disciplinary approach to artmaking, and personas that precede the work. They are also brought together in this exhibition by their extraordinary ability to pivot the medium of linocut through absolute trust in the potential of collaboration and experimentation.
