Marlene Dumas: Cycladic Blues

Roma Publications


This cahier is a visual sketchbook for an exhibition by Marlene Dumas at the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens. The artist positioned her own paintings of bodies and faces alongside items from the museum’s collection: abstract human figurines created some five thousand years ago.

Although the exhibition has been postponed towards 2025, this anticipatory publication already arose from Dumas’ enthusiasm and affection for this dialogue. The enigmatic Cycladic antiquities speak to us in the same timeless language as Dumas’ contemporary works.
