Photo London was created to give London an international photography event befitting the city’s status as a global cultural capital. Now in its third edition, Photo London has established itself as a world-class photography fair and as a catalyst for London’s dynamic photography community.
Karen Knorr, whose work is in collections such as the Tate, Pompidou and Victoria & Albert museums will be showing a range of work at Photo London from the Lanesborough Series at Galerie Filles du Calvaire booth (G16), to the Ladies Series at Augusta Edwards booth (B4).
For the 6th year Galerie Lichtblick/Tina Schelhorn and KOLGA TBILISI PHOTO/ Beso Khaindrava cooperate in organizing the festival program with exhibitions of Georgian and International photographers and workshops with well known photographers from all over the world.
Opening Reception: April 13, 6:30 – 8:00pm
Exhibition is open: April 13 – May 25, 2017
For our third solo show of photographs by Karen Knorr, the gallery is presenting a selection of her constructed animal scenarios taken in both Europe and India. Shot between 2003 and 2016 in various European museums and stately homes and in Indian palaces and temples, Knorr’s work explores the disjunction between nature and culture, bringing the historical tradition of picturing animals squarely into the 21st century.
Compton Verney’s 2017 season will open with a major exhibition that examines our relationship with the countryside. Bringing together Old Masters and contemporary artists whose work spans more than 350 years, Creating the Countryside provokes reflection on the artistic, social and political forces that have played an important role in forming successive generations’ perceptions of this ‘green and pleasant land’.
Works by artists including Thomas Gainsborough, Claude Lorrain, George Stubbs and Stanley Spencer are joined by pieces from contemporary artists such as Karen Knorr, Mat Collishaw, Anna Fox, Sigrid Holmwood and Grayson Perry to present viewers with a broad spectrum of responses to, and interpretations of, this sceptred isle.
Exhibition “Les Femmes s’en mêLent revisited: Facts and Fantaisies” Curated by Stéphane Amiel & Marie Magnier
February 1-25, 2017 Opening Tuesday January 31, 6-9pm
In February 2017, Les Femmes s’en Mêlent festival (LFSM) and Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire (LFDC) decided to celebrate their 20th anniversary together. These two Paris-based institutions both de- velop and defend an original and finally quite similar vision of women artistic expression. For this reason, it only seemed natural for the gallery to host an exhibition on the history of the festival and more broadly, on women iconography in the music world. More information & PR are here.
