In an era dominated by the mass media and a prolif­eration of images, the work of Marlene Dumas (* 1953 in Cape Town) is a testament to the meaning and po­tency of painting. Dumas lives and works in the Neth­erlands. Her intense, psychologically-charged works explore themes such as sexuality, love, death, and guilt, often referencing art history and current affairs. The artist often draws on her expansive visual archive for inspiration and does not hesitate to address con­troversial subject matter. This monographic survey has been developed in close collaboration with the artist and presents over one hundred artworks dating from the late seventies to the present. Essays exam­ine the key themes and motifs in Dumas’s work and reflect on her entire career. Ausstellungen/Exhibitions: Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam 6.9.2014–4.1.2015 | Tate Modern, London Ab 4.2.2015 | Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel ab/opening 30.5.2015
