AWAD and the National Museum of Women in the Arts: Mayfair gallery tour

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

In collaboration with the UK Friends of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and to celebrate Women’s History Month, AWAD members were invited to attend a special evening visit to Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac and Richard Saltoun in London.

We started with a tour of the exhibition ‘Vice Versa’ by Sturtevant given by the curator Julia Peyton-Jones at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac. The exhibition is the first posthumous London showing of the artist and the most recent in the UK since 2013. Featuring her iconic paintings, photographs, installation, video and wallpaper, it showcases why Sturtevant is acknowledged as one of the most important artists of the 21st century. Curated by Peyton-Jones in dialogue with Sturtevant’s daughter, Loren Muzzey, the exhibition consisted of works from the Estate and private collections.

The evening concluded at the Richard Saltoun gallery to visit ‘Women Look At Women’, an exhibition which explores feminine identity through the work of thirteen internationally renowned female artists. The works reflect a different aspect of the relationship women have with their own bodies and how they respond to other women. It is an exciting exhibition for Richard Saltoun, as it is the first in their new gallery space on Dover Street.

Vice Versa‘ is on at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac until 4th April.

Sanctuary by Hormazd Narielwalla at Gallery Elena Shchukina from June 15th

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

Celebrating human life and our relationship with nature: Sanctuary by Hormazd Narielwalla a new exhibition at Gallery Elena Shchukina from June 15th.

The solo exhibition Sanctuary brings together bold new, accompanied with some existing artworks from the London based artist’s signature collage technique, using French antique sewing patterns as the conceptual and material starting point for each work. Painstakingly applying coloured and painted paper, acetate and textiles to fill in the planes between the lines, the artist breathes new life into these long forgotten patterns. Inspired by notion of the garden as a metaphor for society, Narielwalla’s works in Sanctuary gather as a multi-sensory forest, a refuge from the chaos of urban life and open up a space for contemplation and reflection.

“A sanctuary of ideas and beauty, for the preservation of life and of humanity. And what is human? We are just flesh and bone. Art, literature, culture, creation, design is what makes us human.”

Understanding the garment pattern as the closest geometrical abstraction of human bodies, Narielwalla builds on the legacy of Cubism to introduce a fourth dimension of time and movement into his exploration of the body – compressing the sensation of a moment in time into one single image, as experienced in the silent drama of the artwork Pilgrim.
