This week’s Apollo Art Diary highlights museums and expansions that are scheduled to open later this year.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s modernist landmark reopens in Berlin on 22 August after a six-year closure for renovations, overseen by David Chipperfield. The museum’s holdings of mainly early 20th-century German art have been comprehensively rehung, with a new collection display of some 250 works created between 1900–45 by the likes of Otto Dix, Hannah Höch, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Lotte Laserstein. Temporary exhibitions of work by Alexander Calder and a new commission by Rosa Barba will also be on view upon the museum’s reopening (both until 13 February 2022). Find out more from the Neue Nationalgalerie’s website.
