The Mind on Fire. With 150 works, the exhibition recreates some of the artist's seminal photographic shows from the 80s and 90s
"The Mind on Fire" is first institutional exhibition in Spain by American artist James Welling (Hartford, Connecticut, 1951). Comprising a hundred and fifty works, the exhibition recreates some of the artist's seminal photographic shows from the eighties and nineties, charting the development of his abstract and experimental photographic language. The show includes collages, paintings, notes and ephemera related to this early period, all of which culminated in an iconic series of Aluminium Foils. These small-scale silver gelatin prints of minutely crumpled aluminium foil offer abstract, minimal images, which have been likened to starry skies or lunar landscapes. Presented in partnership with MK Gallery, Milton Keynes, and Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver.
