The art world cel­e­brates two vi­sion­ary women, as a Mira Schen­del ret­ro­spec­tive opens at Lon­don’s Tate Mod­ern and an Isa Genzken ex­hi­bi­tion de­buts at the Dal­las Mu­seum of Art. Fa­mous in South Amer­ica, Brazil­ian artist Schen­del is lit­tle known else­where. A sig­nif­i­cant icon of the Brazil­ian Mod­ernist art scene dur­ing the Fifties and Six­ties, she was al­ways more of an out­sider. The Schen­del show, fea­tur­ing some 250 works by the late Swiss- Brazil­ian artist, ex­am­ines ev­ery­thing from her ab­stract geo­met­rics to ’60s ty­pogra­phies. Mean­while, Genzken’s quirky sculp­tures es and lac­quered can­vases show her un­ex­pected ted ap­proach to mix­ing ma­te­ri­als, whether brightly coloured lights or mir­rored d foil. ‘Mira Schen­del’ runs through Jan­uary an­uary 14, 2014 at Tate Mod­ern, Bank­side, Lon­don.;; ‘ ‘Isa Isa Genzken: Ret­ro­spec­tive’ runs from m Septem­ber 14, 2014, to Jan­uary 4, 2015 at the Dal­las Mu­seum useum of Art, 1717 North Har­wood, ar­wood, Dal­las. www.dal­las­mu­se­u­mo­ as­mu­se­u­mo­
