How does our secular society manage its heritage and, with that, its future? By collecting and archiving data with near-religious zeal: human DNA in the form of slivers of umbilical cord, dental samples and sperm, DNA of animals already extinct in the wild, the seeds of all manner of (agricultural) plants. And, of course, vast quantities of digital data that we leave behind on the big data pathways of the internet, credit card statements and official registers.

 Valery Katsuba 1

"Velocius, altius, fortus" features images from Valery Katsuba's acclaimed series "Phiscultura" (1998-2008) and "Air Flight" (2010), as well as his latest work. "Phiscultura" and "Air Flight" came to life as a result of Valery's research in Saint Petersburg State Archives where he discovered images of athletes in sporting societies of the late Imperial Russia made by the prominent photographer of that time, Karl Bulla, as well as heroic portraiture of athletes in the Soviet era.

Sarah Loucas 1

Gladstone Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Sarah Lucas, her first US exhibition in nearly a decade. Since the 1990s, Lucas has been working with found objects and readily available materials to create works imbued with a distinctive and provocative visual language. Drawing on art historical references, cultural stereotypes, and the British tabloid culture, Lucas creates works that both directly and through subtle innuendo, challenge our conception of gender, sexuality, and identity.

Iren Stehli (born 1953) established her reputation with photographic essays from the Czech Republic. Over a period of decades she accompanied Libuna, a Roma woman living in Prague, through the ups and downs of life. The result is a unique long-term study during which the photographer not only maintained the stance of an objective observer, but also became a friend and confidante. In addition to that "work of a lifetime", Iren Stehli has undertaken many other projects since 1974.

Natural Motion de Gabriel Orozco |Moderna Museet | Sweden

Gabriel Orozco 1

Gabriel Orozco, was born in Mexico in 1962 and lives in Paris, New York and Mexico City. He is one of the most widely recognised artists of his generation but has not been shown in the Nordic countries until now. Orozco's reputation has been growing steadily since the late-1980s, and his oeuvre paved the way for a new form of conceptualism that embraces both deep contemplation and precise craftsmanship.

Gabriel Orozco 2

In Moderna Museet's ambition to feature art from beyond the Western mainstream, Gabriel Orozco is a key figure to understanding the contemporary world. Regardless of medium – be it sculpture, photography, painting or installation – his works are based on the place where he dwells, sometimes in apparent improvisations, but often serially over long periods of time. A ground-breaking work, La DS from 1993 (a radically compressed Citroën car) is shown in a new version here, and a 15 metre long whale skeleton, meticulously drawn in black graphite, sails into the exhibition space as a reminder of the transience of life. The artist alternates inimitably between the momentary and the eternal, sometimes within the same group of works. It took Gabriel Orozco a long time to get to our latitude, but here he is, at last.
