How wonderful. A portrait in which one of my favorite artists celebrates one of my favorite writers. For Manifesta Marlene Dumas made a series of portraits to protest against Poetin’s horrendous policy. Manifesta is probably another big elephant in the art room, but I guess me, you and everyone we know is looking forward to Marlene Dumas’ exhibition at Stedelijk.
