Paz Errázuriz’s photography emerged in her native country, Chile, in the first half of the 1970s in a political context dominated by the brutality of the Pinochet dictatorship.

Her first steps were influenced by an extremely tense and uncertain social situation which affected the lives of opponents of the coup d’êtat. Going out on the street with a camera was risky for anyone aiming to capture events as they happened and was also perceived as a threat by the military regime. It was even less common to see a woman undertaking the type of investigations characteristic of photography.

In 1980 Paz Errázuriz presented her first solo exhibition, entitled Personas [People], at the Instituto Chileno-Norteamericano in Santiago. The following year she and some fellow photographers co-founded the Asociación de Fotógrafos independientes (AFI).

During that dark period, Errázuriz’s self-taught photographic gaze focused on homeless people sleeping rough, scraping a living or destitute. This series, Los dormidos [The sleepers], offers a notably unheroic vision of the country, immersed in poverty. Also at that time and throughout the 1980s, Errázuriz turned her inquisitive eye on the lifestyles of the country’s wealthy classes, who displayed their fortunes in the areas of Las Condes and La Dehesa in Santiago.

American artist Romaine Brooks and the roaring twenties – Venice – Italy

Romaine Brooks, “Autoritratto”

Until March 13, 2016 – Venice, Palazzo Fortuny

Beatrice Romaine Goddard was one of the most representative figures of the artistic scene of the 1920s
Paintings, drawings, photographs _ With this exhibition, the first ever in Italy to be dedicated to the American artist Romaine Brooks, we discover the non-conformist, refined and cosmopolitan community that animated the most sophisticated cultural circles of the Belle Époque in Paris, Capri and Venice: Jean Cocteau, Paul Morand, Luisa Casati, Ida Rubinstein and Gabriele d’Annunzio are just some of the characters who were privileged to be immortalised by the artist, famous for her palette of moonlight tones.

Gabriele d'Annunzio

Curated by Jérôme Merceron on the basis of a project by Daniela Ferretti, the exhibition arises from the felicitous meeting with Lucile Audouy, a passionate and feisty collector in Paris, who has generously loaned a very important group of works for the exhibition in Venice, many of which never before seen in public.

Born in Rome in 1874 to American parents and married to pianist John Ellington Brooks, Beatrice Romaine Goddard was one of the most interesting figures of the artistic scene of the Twenties. Romantically linked to the writer Nathalie Clifford Barney and, simultaneously, to the dancer Ida Rubinstein – her model for many paintings -– the American artist also had an intense relationship with d’Annunzio, whom she immortalised in two famous portraits. Initially influenced by the painting of Whistler, she soon found her unmistakable signature style, one marked by an infinite variety of greys and old pinks and an uncanny ability to capture the soul of her subjects.

However, it is the drawings that are the deepest mirror of her tragic and lonely soul. Charged with a suffering poetry, emotion and mystery, irony and pessimism, these elements blend in the taut line devoid of any decorative frills that almost cuts into the paper without hesitation or second thoughts; they accompany us with modesty and apparent detachment through the meanders of an inner world, constantly poised between light and darkness.

The Albertina is dedicating a solo exhibition to the Catalonian artist containing around 100 paintings, drawings and objects, which strives to emphasise the poetic quality of the famous Surrealist.

M
iró’s painting is characterised by a sense of lightness and spontaneity. He looks upon the world with a carefree, almost childish fascination for all things. His unmistakable pictorial language is as magical as it is universal. Moons, stars and comets, eyes and insects, birds and women populate his paintings and are among the most recognisable elements of his art. Miró’s works provide insight into his poetic perception and interpretation of the original, of that which is actually essential in things, the world and the universe.

From September 17, 2014 to February 2, 2015 – Grand Palais

Niki de Saint Phalle (1930 – 2002) is one of the most renowned artists from the mid-twentieth century. Throughout her prolific career, Saint Phalle created a complex body of work in various media which was deeply embedded with socio-political issues. With themes ranging from joyful to profound to intellectual, the paradoxal nature of her work has yet to be fully explored. She was one of the first women to receive international acclaim and recognition during her lifetime, as well as successfully create a public persona. Similar to Warhol, Saint Phalle was able to use the media to skillfully guide the reception of her work

W
ithout any formal art training, Niki de Saint Phalle took her inspiration from Gaudi, Dubuffet and Pollock to invent, in the late 1950s, a singular world independent of any trend or art movement. Her entire career is sublimated by great themes and myths, which later articulated her entire oeuvre. The joyous, colourful side of her work is well known but its violence, commitment and radical stands have been forgotten. And this is equally true of her audacious performances, the political and feminist content of her work and her ambitious public sculptures.

T
his retrospective, the first major exhibition devoted to Niki de Saint Phalle in twenty years, presents a multifaceted artist, at once a painter, assembly artist, sculptor, printmaker, performer and experimental filmmaker, and takes a profoundly new look at her work. Over 200 works and archives, many unpublished, are set out in 2,000 square metres, organised by chronology and theme, and punctuated by screens showing the artist talking about her work. Models of architectural projects and a sculpture-fountain (Snake’s Tree) outside the Grand Palais will give visitors an idea of the scope and diversity of her public work

Siobhan McClure – In the Time of Water – Los Angeles, California

The Guardians, 2012 - Oil on canvas/panel - 36 x 36 inches

The Guardians, 2012 – Oil on canvas/panel – 36 x 36 inches


From September 13 to October 18, 2014 – 101/EXHIBIT 8920 Melrose Ave.

In the Time of Water continues Siobhan McClure’s epic narrative about bands of children that have been left to negotiate the post-apocalyptic urban wasteland “Mirror City.” Inspired by the stillness of Vermeer and the silhouetted German Romantic landscapes of Caspar David Friedrich, McClure has used heightened one-point perspective and delicately rendered figures to engage the viewer with the strangeness of destruction and the possibility inherent within reorder. In addition to fueling such an elaborately cohesive body of work, the conflicts faced by these hierarchical tribes of children provide a fantasy space for the artist to negotiate the existent challenges of today’s tumultuous urban centers. The show includes fifteen watercolor and gouache works on paper, and six medium to large-scale oil paintings on canvas that resume the story of her 2010 exhibition, The Tale of Pearl, at Richard Heller Gallery.

E
ach work from In the Time of Water functions as a fragmented view of McClure’s larger narrative which is ultimately connected by her own elaborate legend of reoccurring motifs. Though complex, the legend is meant as more of an aid than as a pre-requisite to viewing the works; a window into McClure’s artistic process. As Bill Callahan sings in From the Rivers to the Ocean, “Have faith in wordless knowledge. Well, I could tell you about the river or we could just get in.”
Born in 1955 in Margate, England, Siobhan McClure has lived and worked in the Los Angeles area for over 20 years. Her previous solo exhibitions include The Tale of Pearl at Richard Heller Gallery (2010), The Garden at Lara Schlesinger Gallery (2008), and two shows with Jan Baum Gallery (2003, 2001). McClure’s work has also been included in numerous group shows including Prep School at the Torrance Art Museum earlier this year, Artists’ Tales at the Irvine Fine Art Center in 2012, among others at Andi Campognone Projects in Pomona, CA, Angel’s Gate Cultural Center in San Pedro, and the Center for Contemporary Art in Sacramento.
