SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- The Museum of Modern Art, New York, has procured two goauche drawings from Alice Rahon’s extraordinary Crystals in Space series. Rahon described these drawings from the 1940s as “a type of enchantment…They become more and more aerial, faint, complicated, like the secret labors of an insect.” Founded in 1929 with an initial gift of eight prints and one drawing, MoMA’s collection has grown over the last century to more than 200,000 pieces, constituting one of the world’s most comprehensive and panoramic views into modern and contemporary art. MoMA has also acquired María Magdalena Campos-Pons’ Secrets of the Magnolia Tree (2021). Presented as three vertical fragments rooted into the ground and towering up ten feet, Secrets… is among the artist’s most important and comprehensive artworks over decades of her practice.

Two additional Alice Rahon works, Androgyne (1946) and Painting for a Little Ghost Who Couldn’t Learn to Read (1947), have found a home at the Detroit Institute of Arts, along with her contemporary Remedios Varo’s Caja de Jean Nicolle from 1948. Over the course of her career, Varo created only three such mirrored box-objects: she presented this one as a gift to Jean Nicolle, a French pilot with whom she briefly lived in Mexico. With more than 65,000 artworks dating from the earliest civilizations to the present day, the DIA offers its visitors an encounter with human creativity from all over the world and across time. We congratulate the DIA on deepening its collection of modern work with its acquisition of these three pieces, which will join work by friends and peers of Rahon and Varo such as Max Ernst, Paul Klee, Joan Miró, Yves Tanguy, Diego Rivera, and Pablo Picasso.

The Dallas Museum of Art has added Wolfgang Paalen’s La dépouille immortelle to its permanent collection of over 25,000 works of art spanning 5,000 years of human creativity. As a collector, an artist, and a theorist, Paalen catalyzed much of the 20th century’s art criticism and influenced many of its most important artists, including André Breton, Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell, and Mark Rothko. Gallery Wendi Norris congratulates the DMA on acquiring work by this pioneering artist and thinker, whose paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures are also represented in MoMA, New York; Tate Britain, London; The Art Institute of Chicago; the Guggenheim Museum, New York; Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City; and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, has acquired Chitra Ganesh’s Multiverse Dreaming (2021), a suite of twelve digital prints that are part of a larger body of work inspired by Indian comic books the artist grew up reading as a child. Drawing on symbols of rebirth and renewal that range from Venus to Mami Wata, from the tarot to Jung’s anima, Multiverse Dreaming explores the power of shared dreams, collective archetypes, and contemporary notions of femininity and strength. Gallery Wendi Norris is thrilled that the Guggenheim, an internationally renowned art museum that is also one of the most significant architectural icons of the 20th century, has decided to include Chitra’s iconic work as part of its permanent collection.
