Columbus, Ohio “Luc
Tuymans” at the Wexner Center for the Arts (through January 3, 2010). The first U.S. retrospective for this central figure
in contemporary art, based in Antwerp and heir to the great tradition of northern European
figurative painting, whose subtly provocative and uncannily cinematic canvases explore questions of
memory and the recent political past.
