Going through Hell: The Divine Dante

Published on April 27, 2023

Florentine poet, writer and philosopher Dante Alighieri’s (1265-1321) Divine Comedy was written in the Florentine vernacular that formed the basis for the modern Italian language. It describes Dante’s journey through Hell (Inferno), Purgatory (Purgatorio) and Paradise (Paradiso), guided first by the ancient Roman poet Virgil, and then his beloved Beatrice. In the more than 700 years since it was written, the Divine Comedy has remained one of the most influential works of Western literature.

Going through Hell: The Divine Dante explores the influence of this seminal manuscript in some 20 works all from the National Gallery’s collection. Beginning with the 16th century painted Allegorical Portrait of Dante these range from rare early printed editions of the Divine Comedy to sculptures by Auguste Rodin created initially for his monumental project The Gates of Hell, to works on paper from the 15th to 20th century.

The exhibition runs from April 9 – July 16, 2023 at the National Gallery of Art, Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, D.C., 20565.

Vanitas + Viriditas

Published on April 21, 2023

New York gallery Rehs Contemporary will present the newest body of work from ARC Associate Living Master, Josh Tiessen. Tiessen is an international award-winning artist based in Canada, best known for his hyper-surreal and uniquely shaped oil paintings. His pieces often delve into the interaction between the natural world and humanity, drawing on his studies in philosophy and theology. Continuing on that, Vanitas and Viriditas is an exploration of two divergent perspectives on wisdom and how we might flourish in a modern society filled with facts but mired in confusion. The solo exhibition will feature 23 meticulously crafted paintings and drawings, which required more than 5,000 hours of studio work over the course of three years.

The exhibition runs from April 28 - May 26, 2023 and is coinciding with the grand opening of Rehs Gallery's new space, the reception will take place on Friday, April 28th from 4-8 pm at Rehs Contemporary, 20 West 55th Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10019.

Juan de Pareja, Afro-Hispanic Painter

Published on April 13, 2023

This exhibition offers an unprecedented look at the life and artistic achievements of seventeenth-century Afro-Hispanic painter Juan de Pareja. Largely known today as the subject of The Met’s iconic portrait by Diego Velázquez, Pareja was enslaved in Velázquez’s studio for over two decades before becoming an artist in his own right. This presentation is the first to tell his story and examine the role of enslaved artisanal labor and a multiracial society in the art and material culture of Spain’s so-called “Golden Age.” The exhibition culminates in the first gathering of Pareja’s rarely seen paintings, some of enormous scale, which engage with the canons of Western art while reverberating throughout the African diaspora.

The exhibition runs from April 3 – July 16, 2023 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 5th Ave, NY NY 10028.
