Henwood Library – Archive
30 October 2014 – 30 January 2015
We are pleased to invite you on 30th October at 7:30 pm at the opening of “Henwood Library – Archive”, the second exhibition hosted at Galateca Gallery by British multidisciplinary artist Simon Henwood.
The exhibition features works by other artists that have influenced him throughout his life like Picasso, Chagall, Goya, Giacometti, Paolozzi, Andy Warhol and Sir Peter Blake. These artists have also inspired Simon to write his first novel 'Black Arc' also to be launched at Galateca. Also to be previewed are the artist's new portraits of Kids from Transylvania, a project started last summer after his 'Henwood Library – The Love of Books and Art' successful 2013 show at Galateca.
Throughout the years, for two decades, Simon Henwood has experimented on various artistic fields, from painting, drawing, photography and books, to animations, music videos, installations and new media. His works have been exhibited all around the world, being presented at the MOMA (NYC), ICA (London), UCLA Hammer Museum (LA) and Galerie Sophie Sheideker (Paris) in a double exhibition with Francis Bacon. The artist is known for colaborating with Kanye West, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Roisin Murphy, Badly Drawn Boy or Imogen Heap for whom he directed music videos, made concepts for the campaign tour as well as for the albums, costumes, scenography or graphic design.
One highlight of this three months exhibition will be a one-time-only screening of Andy Warhol's unique and experimental films from the '60 – Empire, Sleep, Kiss – a project included in BIEFF – Bucharest International Experimental Film Festival 2014. A project made in partnership with Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. More details to be revealed soon!
