“This delicate series about metamorphosis and transformation, romance and restraint, dream and reality, is good enough to call to mind Picasso’s Vollard Suite.” Jackie Wullschlager, The Financial Times.

A special publication accompanies the exhibition. Generously illustrated in a singer-sewn, portfolio style, including archival source material alongside a textual poetic reflection.

Opening in Venice: A new chapter of Alice Neel, Uptown, curated by Hilton Als
