3. “Nick Cave: Sojourn”; Denver Art Museum; until September 22, 2013
Who hasn't heard of Nick Cave’s work? While Nick Cave is well-known the world over, it isn't often people will get to see a museum show that focuses on his textile-meets-dance work. 20 of his famous Soundsuits will be part of the show.
4. “Martin Kippenberger: Sehr Gut/Very Good”; Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin; until August 18, 2013
Martin Kippenberger died in 1997 at the age of 44, right when his career was just starting to skyrocket. Now, he is being focused on by the very city in which he studied art to begin with.
5. “Ellen Gallagher: AxeMe”; Tate Modern in London; until September 1, 2013
Ellen Gallagher works in both film and paint, but is most famous for her riffs on various wig advertisements. Right now, she also has a New Museum show ongoing in New York City.
6. “Georges Braque and the Cubist Still Life, 1928—1945”; Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C.; until September 1, 2013
The idea for this particular museum show is very interesting. Instead of focusing on Georges Braque's early Cubist works, it focuses on his mature phase instead. There are stunning paintings to be found in this museum show, including his well-known Rosenberg Quartet.
