Julia Margaret Cameron, the '19th century photographer of genius', was one of the first artistic photographers in history.

Until May 5

Tate Modern, SE1,

Max Beckmann is widely acknowledged as one of Germany's leading twentieth-century. A figurative painter, Beckmann depicted the world around him with an unparalleled intensity. He used the canvas to express the turmoil of his own life and the traumas of contemporary history. He refused to join any movement or group, though his work after the First World War had strong affinities with German Expressionism and Cubism.

This show brings together paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings. This retrospective provides a largely chronological overview of Beckmann's artistic career. It focuses on three pivotal periods: 1918-23, 1927-32 and the late 1930s into the 1940s. The first period reflects the impact of the First World War, during which Beckmann served as a medical orderly. By contrast, the second period is coloured by prosperity and public recognition. The final period is once again marked by the experience of war. He fled to Amsterdam in 1937, after Hitler branded him a purveyor of "Degenerate Art". Even though this was a time of privation, isolation and anxiety, it was one of Beckmann's most productive periods. The exhibition ends with Beckmann in America, where, in the last three years of his life, he once again achieved widespread recognition as a major force in modern art.

Wapping Project, E1,

Feb 18-Mar 30

To conclude his Irons in the Fire retrospective, Wilson will make use of Wapping’s cavernous spaces to construct a new work in public. Butterfly, described as a process-based sculpture, will involve acquiring an object which he will crush and then deliver to Wapping as a lump of pulverised metal. He and a determined team of 20 apprentices will then work for six hours a day on site in an attempt to recover and identify the form he has scrapped.
Steel cables will be attached from the ceiling, supporting the structure. Viewers might expect the crumpled shape to emerge, like a butterfly from its chrysalis, as a symbol of the metamorphic processes of creativity. But, in the last weeks, the object will actually appear more like a husk caught in the web of its steel cradle. Its strange life-cycle, captured on film, will now be incorporated into the piece.
