OC­TO­BER 6 TO JAN­UARY 20, 2019 This un­usual ex­hi­bi­tion ex­am­ines how artists have re­sponded to tragedies around the world, such as the 9/11 ter­ror­ist at­tack in 2001, the global fi­nan­cial cri­sis of 2008, and the tsunami-trig­gered Fukushima nu­clear dis­as­ter of 2011. Fea­tured artists in­clude in­ter­na­tional stars such as Gil­lian Wear­ing, Isaac Julien and Mona Ha­toum, as well as prom­i­nent Ja­panese coun­ter­parts Yoko Ono, Tat­suo Miya­jima and the Chim Pom art col­lec­tive, among many oth­ers. mori.art.mu­seum

BRUCE NAU­MAN: DIS­AP­PEAR­ING ACTS

MU­SEUM OF MOD­ERN ART AND MOMA PS1, NEW YORK

OC­TO­BER 21 TO FE­BRU­ARY 25, 2019 Bruce Nau­man is one of the most fa­mous—and of­ten most shock­ing—artists of his gen­er­a­tion. The 76-year-old Amer­i­can has made ev­ery­thing from sculp­tures in­cor­po­rat­ing taxi­dermy moulds to neon works de­pict­ing al­most porno­graphic scenes. This show is split be­tween the two New York in­sti­tu­tions and cov­ers Nau­man’s en­tire ca­reer, which be­gan in the 1960s. moma.org; momaps1.org

BRUEGEL

KUNSTHISTORISCHES MU­SEUM, VI­ENNA

OC­TO­BER 2 TO JAN­UARY 13, 2019 The 450th an­niver­sary of the death of Pi­eter Bruegel the Elder, one of the 16th cen­tury’s great­est Nether­lan­dish painters, takes place in 2019. Only about 40 of his com­plex, mul­ti­lay­ered paint­ings sur­vive. To mark the oc­ca­sion, the mu­seum is bring­ing pan­els from other col­lec­tions to join the 12 it owns for a stun­ning over­view of Bruegel’s oeu­vre. khm.at
