Luc Tuymans - Intolerance

Intolerance accompanies Tuymans’ monumental retrospective in Doha, Qatar (Oct 2015-Jan 2016). The book is richly illustrated with more than 800 illustrations. This ambitious publication includes not only around a hundred paintings and sixty drawings, but also studies, archival material and installation photographs of the main exhibitions in the artist’s career. The curator of the exhibition, Lynne Cooke (National Gallery of Art, Washington), questions Luc Tuymans about the importance of exhibitions and their organization. The art historian Jan Avgikos explores the role of photography, film and digital media in the oeuvre of the artist. ‘Who owns history?’ ‘How do the media influence our awareness?’ ‘Can an image become property?’ Nicholas Cullinan, director of the National Portrait Gallery in London, describes how Tuymans both uses and undermines the traditional genres of painting; history, portrait, landscape, still life. And the art historian Jenevive Nykolak focuses on ‘Forever: The Management of Magic’, a series of paintings that Tuymans based on the utopian projects of Walt Disney.
