The largest modern retrospective dedicated to the work of (South African born) Marlene Dumas offers a unique insight into her creations since the middle of the 1970s.

Having grown up in South Africa, the artist has lived and worked in Amsterdam since 1976. She is amongst the most influent painters of our era. At the crux of her creations, this artist focuses upon the human figure and themes such as identity, humanity, love and death, relating it to current events as well as history of art. In her vast archive of images, Marlene Dumas collects often disturbing and deeply moving model templates.
Until 6th September. B.D.
