This is a major exhibition devoted to Pablo Echaurren at the National Gallery of Modern Art. Having started painting at the age of 18, the young Italian (he was born in Rome, his father having left Chile after World War II) was immediately discovered by the Dada gallerist Arturo Schwarz.
His art is a subtle mix of Dadaism and Surrealism. He has worked in every imaginable medium: painting, collage, book covers, comic books, ceramics, tapestry, jewellery, video, and writing. The exhibition is an excellent opportunity to discover his often-startling works. It pays beautiful tribute to an artist deserving of wider recognition.
