Opening exhibition: Despair of the Soul @ OFOTO Gallery
Joel-Peter Witkin is a master at showing our realities, our dreams or nightmares. He often uses references to the classics in his art, like Venus in Chains, The Raft of G. W. Bush, History of the White World, Venus and the Magdalen and Picasso en Los Disparates de Goya. He uses these references to become “baroque” in the traditional sense of the word. Exhibition will continue until May 14. Get more information here.
