Talking money moves to Oxford

The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford England has announced the next two shows in its major exhibition programme in 2024-25. Opening in August 2024, Money Talks: Art, Society and Power will look at the art of global currency and the depiction of money in art. In spring 2025, Anselm Kiefer: Early Works will celebrate Kiefer’s 80th year and will be the first UK exhibition to explore the early output of one of the most significant artists working today. In addition to ticketed exhibitions, the Museum will host a rich variety of free exhibitions and temporary displays, showing works on loan and from the permanent collections.

Money Talks: Art, Society and Power John Sainsbury Exhibition Galleries | 9 August 2024–5 January 2025 Money Talks: Art, Society and Power will explore the art of physical and digital money, and the complex representation of money in art. The exhibition will feature more than 100 objects from across the globe, from coins and banknotes to artworks by Warhol, Guerrilla Girls, Grayson Perry and Banksy, to the new phenomenon of crypto currency and NFTs. Money Talks will reveal compelling and humorous stories, and examine our tense relationships with money, art and the values we assign them.

Anselm Kiefer: Early Works John Sainsbury Exhibition Galleries | 14 February–15 June 2025 Anselm Kiefer: Early Works will be a landmark survey of the artist’s work produced between 1969-1982. Drawn from the extraordinary collection of the Hall Art Foundation (USA and Germany), the exhibition will show 45 works rarely displayed in public before. Marking Kiefer’s 80th year, the exhibition will feature paintings, photos and mixed-media work and will include less well-known, intimate pieces. The exhibition will also include new work produced for the Ashmolean show.
