Where: Museum of Modern Art, New York When: Through August 19

Every two years, MoMA’s celebrated New Photography exhibition series presents urgent and compelling ideas in recent photography and photo-based art. This year’s edition, Being, asks how photography can capture what it means to be human.

At a time when questions about the rights, responsibilities, and dangers inherent in being represented—and in representing others—are being debated around the world, the works featured in Being call attention to assumptions about how individuals are depicted and perceived.

This highly anticipated annual photography show shines a spotlight on emerging artists, especially those pushing the boundaries of the medium. Don’t miss trending talents B. Ingrid Olson, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, and Harold Mendez.

Anthony Caro: The Inspiration of Architecture

Where: Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery, London

When: 9 March – 10 September 2023

Anthony Caro (1924–2013), widely regarded as one of the 20th century’s most influential sculptors, is the subject of Pitzhanger’s spring exhibition, opening on what would have been his 99th birthday.

Caro heralded a revolution in sculpture in the 1960s, redefining what sculpture was and what it could be. His abstract constructions in painted steel overturned conventional ideas about materials, methods, surface, scale and space. Architecture was an important source of his inspiration, which he described as “perhaps the purest abstract visual form.”   

The exhibition will focus on the resurgence and development of architectural themes within Caro’s sculpture, comprising 16 key works created between 1983–2013.
