Marlene Dumas' new paintings: "Against the Wall"..( impact not be underestimated!)
(Mondoweiss post informing of the new Marlene Dumas' exhibition " Against the Wall" at the David Zwirner gallery in New York as he encourages everyone who can make it to attend and show support)
This is great news..Marlene Dumas, a very famous Amsterdam based South-African artist, though not one of my favorites (who cares?) is a quite remarkable one. I had always found her images, especially the highly sexually charged ones, to be gratuitously confronting and esthetically unpleasant and lacking in sophistication, but I have to agree that she had asserted herself as a distinctive and distinguished "voice". Not an easy task..Her following is immense, huge.This is ground breaking in the fine arts scene as she sends a strong message: "Wake up people!"..
A side note..What makes the news even more interesting is that initially her agents, the famous Saatchi& Saatchi brothers, are Zionists..Let's see how things are going to unfold now.
