Lewis Glucksman Gallery
25 April 2013
An exhibition of note if you happen to be in the Munster area, the Lewis Glucksman Gallery in Cork is showing The Artist’s Eye: Photographic Portraits of Artists. The exhibition, curated by Fiona Kearney and Marco Pierini in partnership with the Galleria Civica di Modena, Italy, brings together such diverse photographers as August Sander, Mimmo Jodice, Annie Leibovitz, Arnold Newman and Francesca Woodman to name a few. it’s a great opportunity to see the work of these photographers and how they tackle the job of portraying artists.
It’s a pity we only get to see one Arnold Newman portrait, that of Max Ernst, when he has such a body of work in that area, but there is quite a number of photographers included and an illustrated catalogue published by Silvana Editoriale accompanies the exhibition. Artist portraits include Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, John Lennon and Andy Warhol among many others. The Glucksman Gallery is a lovely exhibition space in the grounds of University College Cork. It runs until 7 July 2013.
