Top exhibitions that you can’t miss this February

Time to wake up your creative juices in the light of the impending arrival of Spring. February is sure to shake you up with exhibitions from Doisneau, Linder, Patti Smith, Lichtenstein and Gutai.

Femme / Object (Woman / Object) – Linder

Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, France

Feb 1 – April 21

Linder Sterling article exhibitions

Liverpudlian visual and performance artist Linder Sterling is the English feminist who made a name for herself by standing up and questioning the way in which society perceived the female form. Now, she is staging a one woman show at MaM. ‘Femme / Object (Woman / Object)’ brings more than 200 of her prized works together, from her famous photographic collages to the edible dresses, first seen in 1982, that got everyone talking when Lady Gaga wore one in 2010. You’ll also see the influence of punk and post-punk music at play, which gave birth to the cover of the Buzzcock’s iconic album sleeve ‘Orgasm Addict’. Morrissey once said, ‘At every stage, your work – recordings, photography, montages, etc – reads as screams’.

This exhibition is the first retrospective of Linder’s work and is a must see.

Camera Solo – Patti Smith

Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada

Feb 9 – May 19

Patti Smith exhibition Canada

The legendary musician and artist, Patti Smith, is letting us take a glimpse into her world at the AGO this late winter, through an intimate exhibition of personal objects, photography and film. Making a name for herself on the punk scene of the late 70s, this exhibition reveals a different side to the musicians artistic vision and displays the connection between Smith’s fascination with poetry and photography. For those who are fond of Patti’s unfiltered, raw approach to music, they will not be disappointed as the same qualities are found within these works; 70 black and white Polaroid prints, objects and the short film ‘Equation Daumel’. 

Suitable for fans of the musician, the artist and also those who want to see snapshots of time past.
