The art of Ignacio Zuloaga (Eibar 1870–1945 Madrid) is often associated with Romantic ideas of Spain’s Black Legend. This exhibition aims to show the painter in a different light, focusing on his connections with the innovations of Belle Époque Paris. The exhibition illuminates the Symbolist milieu in which the Spanish painter moved during his several stays in France. Curated by Leyre Bozal Chamorro and Pablo Jiménez Burillo, it features more than 90 works by such artists as Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso, Santiago Rusiñol, Émile Bernard and Auguste Rodin.

Closing Soon: Lygia Pape: A Multitude of Forms @ Met Breuer, New York, 21 March – 23 July 2017

The first monographic exhibition in the United States devoted to Brazilian artist Lygia Pape (1927–2004). A critical figure in the development of Brazilian modern art, and a pioneer of the Neo-Concrete movement. Pape combined geometric abstraction with notions of body, time, and space in unique ways that radically transformed the nature of the art object in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Covering a prolific career that spanned five decades, this exhibition examines Pape’s rich oeuvre as manifest across varied media—from sculpture, prints, and painting to installation, photography, performance, and film.
