ORLAN is one of the world’s most important figures in the avant-garde of the second half of the twentieth century and the twenty-first century, known for his works and performances with a strong social critique. The exhibition will be open from November 22, 2023 to February 11, 2024.
The exhibition, which will be held at the Government Exhibition Hall, will showcase some of the themes and formats that the renowned French artist has worked on throughout her career. Highlights of her early works will be on display, such as ORLAN accouchant…. de elle me aime, videos of the most iconic performances that have positioned him as one of the most controversial and vindictive artists of his generation, such as Le baiser de la artiste, and the most recent series he has produced, Women who cry are angry, a series of hybridizations based on Pablo Picasso’s paintings depicting Dora Maar crying, a special “tribute” by Orlan to the Spanish artist in the year that marks the 50th anniversary of his death.
