Marlene Dumas: Myths & Mortals
Apr 28-Jun 30
This exhibition will feature a selection of new paintings that range from monumental nude figures to intimately scaled portraits. Alongside these works, Dumas will debut an expansive series of works on paper originally created for a recent Dutch translation by Hafid Bouazza of William Shakespeare's narrative poem Venus and Adonis. In these drawings—tender and erotic with hints of violence--the artist renders the story of Venus, the goddess of love, and her tragic passion for the handsome youth Adonis in her singularly expressive ink wash.
