Shiodome Museum. Tokyo, Japan
This exhibition will mark the first undertaking to visually link the works of German expressionists—primarily Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), considered one of the founders of abstract art—with those of Georges Rouault (1871-1958), the greatest religious artist of 20th-century France.
Kandinsky → Cage. Music and Spirituality in ArtNov 11, 2017 to Feb 25, 2018
Palazzo Magnani. Corso Garibaldi, 29 Reggio Emilia, Italy
The exhibition goes from the spiritual abstraction of Wassily Kandinsky to the enlightened silence of John Cage and features precious drafts of Richard Wagner’s works (from the Archivio Ricordi in Milan), Max Klinger’s Fantasy of Brahms and a series of Lubok, Russian popular printings. An important nucleus of some fifty works by Wassily Kandinsky follows: paintings, watercolours and graphic work from museums and private collections, which remind of a musical world. The exhibition concludes with a major tribute to John Cage, musician, thinker, poet and artist, whose principles of inner resonance and whose conception of art as a privileged conduit for universal ideas present similarities, references and correspondences with the Kandinsky’s spirituality.
