A summer-long exhibition featuring artists associated with the “School of London” remains on show until 17 September at the Museo Picasso Málaga. Organised in collaboration with Tate London, the exhibition is described as bringing together “Francis Bacon’s powerful solitude, Lucian Freud’s carnal angst, Michael Andrews’ encapsulated ego, Frank Auerbach’s three-dimensional painting, David Bomberg’s emotional force, William Coldstream’s rigorous measure, Ronald B. Kitaj’s multiplicity, Leon Kossoff ’s visceral quality, Paula Rego’s subversion and Euan Uglow’s proportion”. All these artists are associated with what has come to be referred to as the School of London, “a label that has not, however, been accepted by art historians or by the artists themselves”.
WOMEN, FREEDOM AND SURREALISM
In October, the museum will be presenting ( for the first time in Spain) an exhibition that provides an international look at the new creative horizons opened up by women in the context of surrealism.
Announcing the new show, the museum noted,“Tenacious, transgressive and controversial, women
surrealists only gained their full freedom and protagonism as artists when they rebelled against the social and moral impositions of their time.” Exhibiting from 10 October to 28 January, “We are Completely Free: Women Artists and Surrealism” brings together more than 100 works by 18 artists from different countries: Eileen Agar, Claude Cahun, Leonora Carrington, Germaine Dulac, Leonor Fini, Valentine Hugo, Frida Kahlo, Dora Maar, Maruja Mallo, Lee Miller, Nadja, Meret Oppenheim,Kay Sage, Ángeles Santos, Dorothea Tanning, Toyen, Remedios Varo and Unica Zürn. The works include paintings, drawings, sculpture,collage, photography and film.
