Lagniappe for San Sebastian & Bilbao
WTR's Ernie Exhibit provides information on special current exhibitions for our featured museums such as Guggenheim Museum
Now to May 13, 2018 see Henri Michaux. The Other Side
Via more than 200 pieces, documents, and artist’s objects, the show offers an overview divided into three major thematic areas: the human figure, the alphabet, and the altered psyche.
Fundamental series like black backgrounds, frottages, movements, and mescaline-induced drawings are broadly represented in this show, including works that have never before been exhibited.
The exhibition underscores the artist’s unflagging interest in the sciences, musicology, and ethnography.
Michaux experimented with hallucinogenic substances in an ascetic, systematic spirit in order to observe the way the mind behaves under experimental conditions.
