“The world is blue at its edges and in its depths,” Rebecca Solnit

Many have contemplated the universe of blues, from Goethe to Virginia Wolf, from Wassily Kandisky to Georgia O’Keefe, artists, poets, writers, philosophers, all explored blue’s tentacled reach into universal questions of desire and yearning, excitement and repose, sympathy and obsession, melancholy and solitude. SOMETHING BLUE presents a palette of blues spread across the gallery space.

From the delicate “Blaue Pyramide” by Herbert Hamak to the boldly iconic “Torero Bride” by Kimiko Yoshida to the brooding “Beaugency II” by Elger Esser, hues of blue come alive in this vibrant selection of paintings, sculptures, and photographs by 8 artists from across the globe. What emerges is a celebration of the most rare in nature and symphonic of the colors, a hue that transcends to an experience, an incantation, an incarnation of the most whimsical and exceptional heights of the imagination.

Galerie Tanit

For over forty years Galerie Tanit has played an important role in introducing American artists to German audiences and beyond. Galerie Tanit was founded by Naila Kettaneh-Kunigk and Stefan Kunigk in Munich in 1972. The program of the 1980s and early 90s focused on showing artists from the minimal, conceptual and arte povera movements such as Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Robert Mangold, Carl André, Robert Ryman. In 2007 it opened a second home in Beirut with an intention to participate in the cultural and artistic revival of Lebanon. The program of the gallery gradually shifted to a younger generation of artists and introduced international artist like Jeremy Blake and Michael Lin to local audiences.
