Cycladic Blues

Cycladic Blues

Marlene Dumas

This cahier is a visual sketchbook for an exhibition by Marlene Dumas at the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens. It puts Dumas’ work in dialogue with the museum’s collection – the enigmatic Cycladic antiquities, dating from 3000-2000 BC. The visual correlations are mesmerising. The millennia-old pieces of statues speak to us in the same timeless language as Dumas’ contemporary works. ⁠

Although the exhibition has been postponed towards 2025, this anticipatory publication already arose from Dumas’ enthusiasm and affection for this combination. ⁠
