#ARTE | This Spring, @elmuseo is proud to present the first museum survey in the United States of Chilean born artist Alejandro Jodorowsky (b. Tocopilla, 1929). Curated by María Inés Rodríguez, the exhibition will feature more than five decades of his artistic production and will include an array of visual, literary, archival, and filmic material drawn largely from the artist’s personal archives. Among the works on display will be material related to his pioneering role as the director of both recent films including Endless Poetry (2016) as well as cult film classics as El Topo (1970), The Holy Mountain (1973) and his abandoned film adaption of Frank Herbert’s science fiction classic, Dune. Also on view will be works on paper by PascALEjandro, the synthesized being comprised of Jodorowsky and his partner Pascale Montandon-Jodorowsky @pascale_montandonjodorowsky, whose creative production has been described as the “love child” of the two artists.
.
The exhibition will be accompanied by diverse programming, including a Tarot- reading by Jodorowsky. A line-up of film screenings including such cult classics as Fando y Lis (1968), El Topo(1970), and The Holy Mountain (1973). Significantly, Jodorowsky will premiere his latest film,Psychomagic: A Healing Art (2018) in El Museo’s newly restored El Teatro.

#ARTE | This Spring, @elmuseo is pleased to present Argentine-Italian artist Lucio Fontana’s 1968 Ambiente Spaziale [Spatial Environment]. First created in the late 1940s in relation to the artist’s innovative Spatialism movement, Fontana’s Ambienti Spaziali are labyrinthine, total environments that viewers enter and navigate. Reconstructed under the guidance of the Fondazione Lucio Fontana, the all-white Ambiente Spaziale (1968) at El Museo will follow the exact specifications of the artist’s final work in the series, originally conceived and presented at Documenta 4 in Kassel, Germany shortly before Fontana’s death.
The installation coincides with @metmuseum The Met Breur exhibition, Lucio Fontana: On the Threshold.
