  3. If you’ve been following us on our gallery hopping tour, you know that we were cruising through Switzerland last week. We simply couldn’t get enough of the beautiful scenery so we decided to stay put for the week and explore the gallery scene in Zurich a little bit more. We have four shows on our list this week. First up is Ana Pais Oliveira: Architektur und Farbe at Art Forum Ute Barth. Next we will jump over to Galerie Andres Thalmann to see the show Caetano de Almeida: Recent Works. Continuing with our zip tour we will swing by Galerie Haas AG Zürich to take a look at Slawomir Elsner: Duett. As our final destination of the tour, we will hop on over to Galerie Andrea Caratsch to catch the show Walter Dahn: Works From The 80’S. Zurich is the hot bed of activity for galleries this week and flying through Zurich to see art is a wonderful way to bid adieu to summer!

  4. Art Embodied at its Most Elegant

    In his twenties, Christian Dior exhibited works by Picasso, Dalí, Cocteau, Miró, Ernst, Klee, and Braque in his art gallery near the Champs-Élysées in Paris. Perhaps the simple lesson the future fashion designer learned from those provocateurs was that, when it comes to couture, looks cannot be deceiving: therefore such Dior lines as Verticale, Oblique, Ovale, Longue, Profilee, and Tulipe were all instantly recognizable classics.

  7. Gallery Hopping Through Switzerland

    We’re taking a road trip through Switzerland to catch this week’s hottest art shows. 

    The first stop on our itinerary is the idyllic city of Lucerne, where Galerie Urs Meile will host its second solo exhibition for the experimental artist, Li Gang (Chinese, b. 1986). The exhibit, Salt Road, will present a collection of new works by the artist, made from materials diverse as waste from exhaust emissions all the way to ordinary wood. There is no common thread binding all of the works together, instead they are bound by the overarching themes of experimentation and transformation.

  16. Gallery Hopping in Colombia

    On this week’s agenda is a trip south of the border to Colombia, where From Form to Figure will open at Beatriz Esguerra Art. This exhibit will feature a series of new works by Carolina Convers (Colombian). What is significant about this show is that it captures the artist in a moment of transition. Convers, who traditionally creates figurative works made out of industrial enamels on acetate prints is moving away from this practice and into abstraction and the use of oil on canvas. Both materials and subject matter have changed for the artist and the works on display effectively illustrate this artistic evolution. Even though there is an ostensible difference between the two types of work on display, it is clear that there is still a lot of overlapping in style and form. Viewers will notice that many of the forms in the abstract works very much resemble the shapes found in Convers’ figurative works. In this way, Convers has not completely divorced herself from figuration altogether, instead she has incorporated elements of this style into her approach to abstraction. This show is a wonderful opportunity to see how Convers’ artistic practice has changed and grown as she has experimented with different subject matter and material. Don’t miss out!

    We would be remiss not to mention these other great shows opening this week!
