The group show Sanguine. Luc Tuymans on Baroque presents the work of the Senegalese artist Cheikh Ndiaye at Fondazione Prada in Milan until February 25th, 2019 in Milan, Italy.

Curated by Luc Tuymans, Sanguine is a personal interpretation of the Baroque based on innovative juxtapositions and unexpected associations of works by contemporary artists and Old Masters. Avoiding a rigid chronological order or a strictly historiographical approach, Tuymans evades the traditional notion of the Baroque and invites viewers to reconsider 17th century art, as well as the contemporary research, by placing artists and their role in society at the center of the exhibition narrative.
