  • In 1958, the postwar German artists Heinz Mack and Otto Piene founded ZERO at their studio in Düsseldorf. The group, which disbanded in 1966, sought to explore the future of art in a fusion of cutting-edge technology and utopian political ideals. This exhibition is a consideration of their collective work and lasting impact, and includes two hundred works by Mack, Piene, and Günther Uecker, the core members, in addition to works by a wide range of collaborators such as Lucio Fontana.

  • Is spirituality today a syncretic experience? For this artist, who has created a jubilant and terrifying array of totemic sculptures and paintings (all new work), religion is a narrative to be spun. Deploying classical techniques and the latest technologies to conjure a perpetually beaming cast of characters, Murakami has made a show about faith, largely as a response to the Great Tōhoku Earthquake of 2011, which wiped out entire cities, triggered several nuclear accidents, and resulted in a death toll of nearly twenty thousand.

These works interfere with space both physically and conceptually, prompting all manner of critical readings about domesticity and utility. But more important, Handforth’s vision of the object is as playful and vital as ever.

  • Organized in collaboration with the Guggenheim Bilbao, the first major retrospective of Niki de Saint Phalle in twenty years celebrates the artist’s diverse oeuvre with more than two hundred paintings, sculptures, prints, films, and performances. The Grand Palais exhibition locates Saint Phalle—who was born in France, grew up in the United States, and worked between the two countries during her long career—as simultaneously part of Paris’s neo-realist movement and New York’s Pop art movement.
