“Yves Saint Laurent at the Museums”

Or: Museum of Modern Art in Paris, Center Pompidou, Musée d’Orsay, Musée National Picasso Paris, Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris, Musée du Louvre

When: January 29-May 15 (closed April 15 at the Picasso Museum)

Six decades ago, the first fashion show under the name of Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) paraded. To celebrate this important milestone, six Parisian museums where the French designer sought inspiration have collaborated on a city-wide exhibition. Each will combine YSL creations with works by artists such as Mondrian, Picasso, Matisse, Bonnard and Dufy. For example, at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, next to “La Fée Électricité” by Dufy (“La Fée Électricité”, 1937) will stand three spectacular silk dresses, while the Musée d’Orsay will focus on its fascination with Marcel Proust, who probably inspired Le Smoking de Saint Laurent, the first tuxedo for women. During this time, the National Picasso Museum will explain the influence of the Spanish master on Saint Laurent, from the couturier’s tribute to the sets and costumes of Picasso’s “Ballets Russes” (1976) to his Cubist collection from 1988. –Sarah belmont

In his day, the 15th-century Florentine sculptor Donatello was considered “the master of masters”. Despite this, there has not been a major exhibition dedicated to the sculptor’s work for nearly 40 years. That is set to change in March when a vast investigation into Donatello’s work opens in Florence at Palazzo Strozzi and the nearby Museo Nazionale del Bargello, which houses the sculptor’s most important collection of works, including “David” (c. 1440). Smaller incarnations of the show will be seen at the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin in September and at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London next year. – Cristina Ruiz

With only three primary colors (plus black and white) and two ordinal directions, Piet Mondrian took painting to new levels of abstraction. His influence on modernism was immense – in the visual arts as well as in design, architecture and fashion. To mark the 150th anniversary of his birth in the Dutch city of Amersfoot, several museums are organizing major surveys of his work. An exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler in Switzerland and at the K20 in Düsseldorf will begin with his early paintings, which were influenced by Dutch landscape painting and post-impressionism. He will then retrace his evolution while he completely abandoned the representation to achieve his wonders at right angles. -Lee Cheshire

The Art Institute of Chicago and Tate Modern in London have organized the largest Paul Cézanne exhibition in a generation. Simply baptized “Cézanne”, it will cover the artist’s entire career. In Chicago, where the exhibition opens, it will include 90 oil paintings, 40 works on paper and two sketchbooks, although it will be slightly reduced in London (70 oils and 18 on paper). Cézanne (1839-1906) has always been considered an “artist artist” and exerted a great influence on later painters, including Monet, Pissarro, Matisse and Picasso. He remains a source of inspiration, and among the lenders of the exhibition will be Jasper Johns, the American Abstract Expressionist, who will send three key watercolors (plus an oil painting of a nude in Chicago only) from his collection. personal. Technical analysis of the artist’s palette, construction of composition, and mark-making will deepen our understanding of how Cézanne created his paintings. Chicago promises that the show will “reframe Cézanne, a giant in the history of art, for our time.” –Martin bailey

They include The Nest Collective from Kenya, La Intermundial Holobiente from Argentina, Keleketla! Library of South Africa and Sa Sa Art Projects of Cambodia.

Over the past year, there has been a resurgence of interest in South Korean film and television, and Western art galleries are rushing to open in Seoul. But the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Lacma) has been exploring Korean art for several years now, with a series of major exhibitions. “The Space Between” covers the critical but often overlooked period of 1897-1964, ranging from the end of the Joseon period, the last Korean dynasty, to the colonial period (1910-45) when Korea was under Japanese rule, and the Korean War.

It’s a great story, told through the work of 90 artists and 140 paintings, photographs and sculptures. – Scarlet Cheng
