Truth and Beauty present book launch of Terry Munro’s EMPIRE OF ILLUSION

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

On April 18th, 2018, from 4:00 – 8:00 Truth and Beauty Gallery with Vancouver Curator Bill Jeffries, will host  a special event book launch EMPIRE OF ILLUSION by Terry Munro and Text by Bill Jeffries.

 

Over the past decade Canadian artist Terry Munro has concentrated his creative efforts in documenting one street: Las Vegas Boulevard in Nevada, USA. Visually, Las Vegas offers an unprecedented environment that purposely and at great expense seeks to interrogate the relationship between reality, symbols and society in often bizarre, ethnocentric, exaggerated, extraordinary and outrageous ways. It is a place that demands the craving of fantasy, ecstasy and illusion.

The photographs presented here in duotone by Munro distil the hyperbole and extravagance of the Las Vegas strip to reveal simple truths about spectacle as the final manifestation of capitalism. Exploring the ideas and influences of Munro, Bill Jeffries has contributed a text that explores these themes in more detail, and how the photographer’s work sits within the canon of North American photography.    – Black Dog Publishing


 

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.

Sarah Lee exhibition at Leica Gallery Los Angeles

Monday, March 26th, 2018

Diana Ewer, a member of the AWAD London Chapter, has organised a show of photographs by London based photographer Sarah Lee at Leica Gallery in Los Angeles.

In 2015, Lee was commissioned by BAFTA to officially document its awards ceremonies. With unprecedented access, she was briefed to photograph whatever she wanted, in order to capture the unique narrative of these events. Lee chose to shoot in digital black and white with the aim of finding intimate and emotional moments amidst the public and formal nature of BAFTA’s events. Whilst drawn to the glamour and echoes of ‘old Hollywood’, she has refined a sensibility and approach, which revels in the territory of the unguarded, playful and surreal.

Lee’s photographs have already been published in a number of publications, including The Guardian, TIME, Billboard, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone and Intelligent Life. She has also exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London.

The exhibition is available to view at Leica Gallery Los Angeles until 2nd April 2018.
