Reblog of the day: Be sure to visit Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes at 6 Burlington Gardens before it closes this Saturday, November 7th.
Pace Gallery, London, United Kingdom
In honour of the exhibition Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes, Pace London hosted an exclusive conversation between Hiroshi Sugimoto and Christopher Rothko, the son of Mark Rothko, exploring affinities between the two artists. Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes is on view at Pace London, 6 Burlington Gardens until November 17th.
Pace London Director, Mollie Dent-Brocklehurst, has recently curated “Henry VIII and his Six Wives” at Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire. Catherine Parr, the last of Henry the VIII’s six wives, is buried there, and in honor of the five-hundredth anniversary of her birth, Hiroshi Sugimoto’s uncanny photographs of wax figures of the Tudor monarch and all his wives will be on view until October 31st, 2012.
We invite you to visit our newest gallery space and exhibit, Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes, at 6 Burlington Gardens. This inaugural exhibition pairs eight acrylic paintings by Mark Rothko and eight gelatin silver prints by Hiroshi Sugimoto, revealing two different artistic approaches that arrive at similar conclusions.

Hiroshi Sugimoto's diorama photographs taken at the American Museum of Natural History first brought him acclaim more than thirty years ago. In this article by The New York Times, he returns to the museum and discusses issues of memory, time, and preservation.
His work is now on view at Pace London, pairing his bare seascapes with Mark Rothko’s late black-and-gray paintings.
