I attended an art opening tonight with my friends Nikki and Eric.
LEONORA CARRINGTON: THE CELTIC SURREALIST
APRIL 03, 2014
161 JESSIE STREET [at NEW MONTGOMERY]
Gallery Wendi Norris will present the second solo exhibition for Leonora Carrington. Many of the exhibitions twenty works will travel from the Irish Museum of Modern Art, where the first solo museum exhibition has been on view since Carrington’s death. Entitled, Leonora Carrington: The Celtic Surrealist, the exhibition and the corresponding book examine the iconography and narrative as it relates to her Irish ancestry. Carrington’s exhibition will include roughly ten rarely exhibited oil paintings in addition to a seven-piece gouache series that was on view at the Guggenheim’s seminal exhibition, Surrealism: Two Private Eyes, the Nesushi Etegun and Daniel Filipacchi Collections in 1999.
