With global travel bans, cancelled art fairs and restricted museum and gallery access our ability to experience and encounter art has been significantly reduced these past couple of weeks.
At PULPO Gallery, we want to do our part to keep the art experience alive and are opening our first online only show:
Portraits: 1962 - 2017 examines the use of portraits in art across different mediums such as photography, oil paintings and drawings. The journey takes us from Europe to Asia and from Africa to North America. We revisit Marilyn Monroe's famous The Last Sitting, watch Georg Baselitz remix his provocative work Big Night, explore Jean-Michel Basquiat's use of materials such as found wood or his early adoption of xerox photocopy and are mesmerized by Alex Katz's big scale portrait Martha or Jiro Takamatsu's Shadow (No. 1430).
