21 Sept-12 Nov. Galleria Lorcan O'Neill presents a double show with work by Kiki Smith and Betty Woodman.
This is the first time that the celebrated American artists, and longtime-friends, have exhibited together.
Best known for her depictions of the human form, Smith's preferred media are bronze and Nepal paper, and her work is concerned with issues such as birth, regeneration, race and gender.
Woodman, who for the past 40 years has been based between Tuscany and New York, combines lacquered ceramic and painted canvas to make colourful three-dimensional works. In 2010 the late Edith Schloss, Wanted in Rome's art critic, described Woodman as "a pixie and a wizard.... one of the most celebrated and articulate ceramicists of today."
Woodman's sculpture and works on paper, created especially for the occasion, are shown alongside new work by Smith including Jacquard tapestries, sculpture and a room of collaged drawings.
