Opening Reception and Private View
Tuesday 30 April 2013
Lahd Gallery was eager to attend what Tate Modern had to offer at the opening night of ‘Axme’
Ellen Gallagher worked with painting, drawing, sculpture, film, collage and installation....On the whole, a 360° artist!
The title ‘AxMe’ is a play on the black American colloquial ‘Ask’ as well as the ‘Acme Corporation’- (the fictional mail-order company that supplies Wile E Coyote with an endless series of traps and devices to capture Road Runner)
The exhibition came to pass as having works from different stages of her life. Her childhood was specifically present all throughout the exhibition.
The space was divided into 11 rooms with paintings, installations and film which reminded us of the former American culture in the last several years.
An un-missable exhibition that will remain till the 1st of September 2013.
