Pablo Echaurren: Iconoclast
19 March – 18 May 2014
A display of collages by Pablo Echaurren, son of the Surrealist painter Sebastian Matta. These works reflect the artist’s fascination with cartoon imagery, and incorporate fragments taken from the Futurist and Dadaist publications of which Echaurren is an avid collector, constituting a homage to the vitality of the Modernist avant-garde.
The Years of La Dolce Vita
30 April – 29 June 2014
The 1950s and ’60s represent a golden era in Italy’s cinematic history, when such directors as Antonioni, Pasolini and Fellini produced some of their most famous movies, and glamorous Hollywood stars flocked to Rome. This exhibition draws on the vast archive of Marcello Geppetti – one of the inspirations for the character of Paparazzo in La Dolce Vita (1960) – as well as number of photographs taken on the set of the film. Candid and evocative, these images not only capture a period of remarkable creativity, but also changed the face of photojournalism forever.
