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)
(My comment)
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.
