Paola di Bello’s other take on everyday Milan, now at Museo del Novecento

The artist’s work, both in photographs and video, transforms a common situation into something extraordinary, drawing it out of its everyday dynamics. The exhibition, entitled “Milano Centro”, will be open during the museum’s winter season, dedicated to Milan-based artists.

Erin Shirreff “Halves and Wholes” at Kunsthalle Basel

The centerpiece of the exhibition is a new video, Concrete Buildings (2013—16). Each of its projections is devoted to one of the (only) two pieces of architecture that Donald Judd entirely designed and built in his lifetime; Judd intended them as ideal spaces to house and display his artworks as well as those of several artists close to him.
