Draw Art Fait London
Heure et lieu
À propos de l'événement
For Draw Art Fair, we have organised our scenography around four thematic walls:
- The first will be dedicated to Dorothée Selz, artist that we showcased very recently during the exhibition “Dorothée Selz: A girl with a Guy”. She has developed a singular and unique work over the years, that goes beyond the Nouveau Réalisme in France, and has been praised internationally at a level rarely achieved by a French artist. We’ll exhibit a selection of works from the serie “Enfance”, drawings made by herself when she was a child, that she reworked fifty years later, revisiting the universe of her childhood with the power of her artistic practice.
- The second wall is entirely dedicated to Dora Maar. Muse of Picasso, her work as a photographer and painter is now duly recognised, and has just been the subject of a retrospective organised jointly by the Getty Museum, the Center Pompidou and the Tate Modern. We'll exhibit a set of drawings representative of her research around landscape, sometimes pointillist, sometimes abstract.
- The third one echoes the exhibition "Some Japanese volumes” that we've recently organised. It confronts the architectural drawings of Tadao Ando with the preparatory drawings by the great artist Mono-ha Nobuo Sekine − who recently passed away − that he has made for his participation to the Venice Biennale in 1970.
- Finally, the last wall will be entirely dedicated to the great English painter Malcolm Morley, who lived most of his life in the USA, and won the first Turner Prize in 1984. The use of watercolor that he is doing summarises the whole evolution of his work, from the meticulous hyperrealism of its beginnings to the powerful expressionism of the end. Several of these works were made during live painting sessions in zoos. They were the subject of an exhibition last year at our gallery: "Paper animals”.
