Marlene Dumas (Cape Town, 1953) is considered one of the most influential artists working today. She is known for her exploration of the relationship between reality and its representation in the media. She often bases her portraits on newspaper and magazine photographs or images from her immense visual archive. In her paintings and drawings, she frequently addresses existential themes, and doesn’t shy away from controversy. Now, the Stedelijk Museum is mounting the largest exhibition of Dumas’ work to be held in Europe for twenty years, in partnership with Tate Modern in London and the Foundation Beyeler in Basel, which will host the exhibition after Amsterdam. The exhibition contains over 100 works by Dumas from the period 1975 to 2013. - See more at: http://www.stedelijk.nl/en/exhibitions/marlene-dumas-the-image-as-burden#sthash.W4K182lD.dpuf
