Cindy Sherman

Hauser & Wirth New York, Wooster Street, 18th January 2024 – 16th March 2024

In these latest works, on display at Hauser & Wirth’s Wooster Street location, Cindy Sherman has collaged various elements of her own face to construct entirely new characters, using digital manipulation to emphasise layered details and underscore the malleability of the self. She has removed external context, eschewing any mise-en-scène, to focus completely on the details of the face and head.

Cindy utilises a digital collaging technique that incorporates both black and white and colour photographs with more traditional methods of transformation, like make-up, wigs and costumery, to create a group of unsettling portraits of women who laugh, wince, smirk and grimace at the viewer.

Helen Sear: Natural Fantastic

Martin Asbæk Gallery, Copenhagen, 1st March 2024 – 6th April 2024

Martin Asbæk Gallery is proud to present Natural Fantastic, British visual artist Helen Sear’s second solo exhibition at the gallery. From the unfurling of the first bracken leaves on the forest floor to the falling of a giant pine, Helen reanimates processes of growth and decay through multiple exposures and layers, incorporating close observation and a performative approach to the act of image making.

Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2024

The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize is awarded annually to a photographer who has made a significant contribution to the photographic medium in Europe during the past year. This year’s shortlisted artists – VALIE EXPORT, Gauri Gill & Rajesh Vangad, Lebohang Kganye and Hrair Sarkissian – all show the power of photography to explore, investigate and interrogate our world.

As We Rise: Photography from the Black Atlantic

Dalhousie, Halifax, 26th January 2024 – 5th May 2024

The ethos of community is at the heart of the collection from which this exhibition is drawn. Established by Dr. Kenneth Montague, the Wedge Collection is Canada’s largest privately owned collection committed to championing Black artists.

Containing 108 artworks, touring exhibition As We Rise (which will be on view until 2026 – see link for locations) embraces an expansive definition of the familial; the title As We Rise is borrowed from a phrase that Dr. Montague’s father would often invoke: “Lifting as we rise.” By this, he emphasised the importance of parlaying one’s personal success into communal good and investing back into the Black community to which he and his family belonged.
