ECHIGO-TSUMARI 2016 SUM­MER Fun in the sun and all for the love of art—guided tours, work­shops, and per­for­mances staged among art­works and ter­raced rice fields fill all 16 days of this sum­mer event. High­lights in­clude lo­cal fes­ti­vals, a des­ig­nated wa­ter play area, out­door film ex­pe­ri­ences, and the spe­cial sum­mer open­ing of the Echigo-Tsumari Art Field. The widely an­tic­i­pated art­works are dot­ted across ap­prox­i­mately 200 vil­lages—each work nat­u­rally lit by the beauty and rich­ness of the Sa­toyama land­scape. From Au­gust 6 to 21 at Echigo-Tsumari Sa­toyama Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art fa­cil­i­ties, Ja­pan. www.echigo-tsumari.jp/eng FromMi­ami­toKualaLumpu­ran­de­v­ery­where­in­be­tween,gearup­foranex­cit­ingsea­sono­fart.ByKhadi­jaOven­den. MONA HATOUM Or­gan­ised by the Cen­tre Pom­pi­dou, Musée Na­tional d’Art Moderne, Paris, and in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Fin­nish Na­tional Gallery and the Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art Ki­asma, Helsinki, Tate Mod­ern proudly presents ev­ery­thing Mona Hatoum. Im­merse your­self in this show­case, from past to pre­sent, from small sculp­tures to large-scale in­stal­la­tions, over­flow­ing with con­no­ta­tions of iso­la­tion and con­flict. The in-depth anal­y­sis chal­lenges our codes of con­duct through the re­veal­ing of its com­plex­i­ties and con­tra­dic­tions with works from 35 years of Hatoum’s ca­reer, in­clud­ing the in­fa­mous and threat­en­ing Light Sen­tence and Home­bound. Un­til Au­gust 21 at Tate Mod­ern, Lon­don. www.tate.org.uk FRIEZE ART FAIR, LON­DON Watch out for a guest list of fash­ion nota­bles and sup­port from lux­ury brands—McQ by Alexan­der McQueen joins in as a spon­sor for the ICA Frieze Bar af­ter-par­ties, while Gucci con­tin­ues its spon­sor­ship of his­tor­i­cal art show Frieze Mas­ters. Whether a new or sea­soned col­lec­tor, with more than 170 of the world’s con­tem­po­rary art gal­leries, this is a must-visit. From Oc­to­ber 6 to 9 at Frieze Lon­don. www.frieze.com JEFF KOONS: NOW The Ser­pen­tine Gallery hosted ‘Jeff Koons: Pop­eye Se­ries’ back in 2009, and this sum­mer, an­other ex­hi­bi­tion ded­i­cated to one of the big­gest, bold­est artists of our era, re­turns. Em­bark on a colour­ful jour­ney from 1979 to 2014, fea­tur­ing more than 30 paint­ings, works on pa­per, and sculp­tures, in­clud­ing Koons’s gi­ant Play-Doh, his five-me­tre-tall stain­less steel Bal­loon Mon­key, and other sig­na­ture in­flat­a­bles. Re­veal­ing some of his ear­li­est works and never-be­fore-seen ones in the UK, ‘Jeff Koons: Now’ is eas­ily the most ex­ten­sive ex­hi­bi­tion to date, pro­vid­ing au­di­ences with noth­ing less than thought-pro­vok­ing pieces. Un­til Oc­to­ber 16 at Newport Street Gallery, Lon­don. www.new­port­street­gallery.com GALLERY WEEK­END KUALA LUMPUR This in­au­gu­ral week­end event is not to be missed. Aim­ing to high­light the his­tor­i­cal and cul­tural sig­nif­i­cance of merg­ing arts, and giv­ing spot­light to con­tem­po­rary de­vel­op­ments in tra­di­tional art forms that use a va­ri­ety of medi­ums, this event fea­tures par­tic­i­pat­ing gal­leries, in­de­pen­dent mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary art projects, public art, and cul­tural ac­tiv­i­ties—all free to the public. That’s not all; BAZAAR cel­e­brates the launch of Cul­ture-Con­nois­seur Kuala Lumpur this month, de­signed to keep you in the loop with the city’s art and cul­ture hap­pen­ings. From Novem­ber 25 to 27 at Shalini Ganendra Fine Art. www.cul­ture-con­nois­seur.com ART BASEL, MIAMI BEACH The land­scape sur­round­ing Collins Park and Sound Scape Park trans­forms to a grand stage star­ring the world’s premier art shows for mod­ern and con­tem­po­rary works, with each show unique to its host city and re­gion.
