GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM > To Feb. 2007: “100% Africa.”
Works by 25 artists document the variety of artistic idioms, paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, installations and videos, in contemporary sub-Saharan Africa. Most of the works by such artists as Seydou Keita, Chéri Samba, George Lilanga, and Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, among others, are on loan from the collection of contemporary African art created by Jean Pigozzi.  www.guggenheim-bilbao.es

MUSEO THYSSEN-BORNEMISZA > To Jan. 8: “Sargent-Sorolla.”
A comparison of the works of two artists of the turn of the 20th century: John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) and Joaquín Sorolla (1863-1923) knew each other and admired their respective work. Both resisted the influence of Impressionism and upheld the naturalist tradition. Portraits, genre scenes and group scenes by both artists are brought together, as well as works that are more specific to each of them.  www.museothyssen.org

To March 11: “Rauschenberg Express.” “Express” is one of a small group of works that marks Robert Rauschenberg’s evolution towards a new pictorial style in which he reconciled figuration and abstraction. The small display of 16 works documents the process through which the American artist (born 1925) adopted a new technique, oil, ink and serigraphy on canvas, which would become the basis of his work.  www.museothyssen.org
