The Megaplex Trilogy reprocesses popular culture gleaning from iconic Hollywood pictures. Marco Brambilla re-contextualizes this imagery into sprawling human narratives presenting a mega-spectacle of highly saturated visual mosaics.
In TUBE, the chief work of the Lithuanian artist Zilvinas Kempinas, first shown at the 2009 Venice Biennale and since then seldom displayed, Kempinas generates maximal sensory impressions with minimal means. Horizontally stretched video tapes convey the perspective of a tunnel, walking through which evokes new, fascinating levels of perception in the visitor.
This exhibition will feature rare notebooks created by Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960–1988), offering an intimate look at the life of the influential contemporary artist who died tragically at age 27. Filled with Basquiat's handwritten texts and sketches, the 160 unbound notebook pages will be presented along with 30 related paintings, drawings and mixed-media works drawn from private collections and the artist’s estate, as well as a Basquiat painting from the High's collection.
The High will premiere a major retrospective of the work of celebrated contemporary photographer Vik Muniz as part of an international tour. Co-organized by the High and the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, the exhibition will examine the full breadth of this imaginative artist's career and will feature nearly 120 photographs, including many of Muniz's most recent works.

HEY! modern art & pop culture, an art magazine founded in 2010 by Anne & Julien, is back at La Halle Saint Pierre after the resounding success of its two previous editions in 2011 and 2013. This third edition, HEY! modern art & pop culture / Act III, will go further in its exploration and diffusion of various countercultural artistic media: Lowbrow Art, outsider art, comics and more generally any artistic vector of street culture.
The first major exhibition of the artist’s notebooks, Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks features 160 pages of these rarely seen documents, along with related works on paper and large-scale paintings.

A New York-based collector has converted a vast former salt warehouse in Ibiza into an 8,000 sq. ft gallery, which opens this week on the Balearic island.
The Musée d'Arte Moderne de la Ville de Paris, in association with Le CENTQUATRE, is devoting a wide-ranging retrospective to American artist Keith Haring (1958-1990). The exhibition will bear witness to the importance of Haring's work, in particular its profoundly "political" content, apparent in his work throughout his career. Almost 250 pictures on canvas and tarpaulins and from subway walls - as well as twenty monumental works - will be exhibited at Le CENTQUATRE, making this one of the largest presentations of Keith Haring's works ever.
With the 11th Hour Auction, Evening and Day Sales, Christie's led the art market with the highest total ever, in any category
“The market will understand very soon that pieces from 1983 to 1987 are just as good. As far as investment, the later pieces have a much greater upside than the earlier works, since they have been underestimated,” says Malca, adding that it is “similar to what happened with Picasso’s and De Kooning’s work”.

To mark his fiftieth birthday, the Fondation Beyeler is devoting a large retrospective to Jean-Michel Basquiat, comprising more than 100 paintings, works on paper, and objects from renowned museums and private collections around the world. His works, populated by comic-like figures, skeletal silhouettes, curious everyday objects, and poetic slogans, are highly colorful and powerful. They blend pop culture and cultural history into critical and ironic commentaries on consumer society and social injustice. The exhibition brings together many of Basquiat’s major works and illustrates the development of this legendary art scene star.
