NATALIA GONCHAROVA AND THE WOMEN OF THE RUSSIAN AVANT-GARDE
Jun 1 - 30, 2019
ONLINE EXHIBITION:
Our June online exhibition celebrates the trailblazing modernist artist Natalia GONCHAROVA and other female artists of the Russian avant-garde. Coinciding with Goncharova's first retrospective in the UK at Tate Modern (6 June until 8 September), this digital presentation champions the female artists who, despite sitting on the edge of art history with preference often given to their male counterparts, emerged with some of the most radical and progressive ideas of the 20th century.
Alongside Goncharova's 15-part piece Misticheskie Obrazy Voiny [Mystical Images of War] (1914) are intimate and behind-the-scene photographs by Alexander RODCHENKO, capturing his wife Varvara STEPANOVA together with artist Lyubov POPOVA and muse Lilya Yuryevna BRIK – all key figures within the Russian avant-garde.

Alice Maude-Roxby discusses Gina Pane's work on the final day of Richard Saltoun Gallery's exhibition 'Gina Pane: Action Psyché.'
Author of the book On Record: Advertising, Architecture and the Actions of Gina Pane, Maude-Roxby's research examines the role of photographers in documenting live art, bringing to light the collaborative aspect of their work with performance artists. Here she specifically discusses the relationship between Gina Pane and Françoise Mason, the only photographer to document Pane's unique and radical actions.
The lecture is free and open to the public, but spaces are limited. Please email rsvp@richardsaltoun.com to book your spot.

Jun 29 - Aug 24, 2019
Private view Fri Jun 28 6pm - 8pm
“In 1971 I visited an exhibition called ‘Tantra’ at the Hayward Gallery in London which changed my future life and art. I saw a Yantra (mystic diagram) dedicated to the Goddess Kali and understood abstraction for the first time. I recognized the visual language of the exhibit, being entranced by animal headed beings and figures whose energy centres (chakras) throbbed with mystic energy. I felt that Tantric iconography represented the evolution of Surrealism.
 
Over the next years I sought to discover the secrets of Tantra. Nik Douglas, an authority in the field, became my next partner and I immersed myself in the art, philosophy and practice.
 
This exhibit shows some of the works that emerged.”
