The exhibition features more than 80 photographic portraits of artists who wrote the history of art in the last century and had a great influence on the art of the 21st century. Among them are Christo, Ai Weiwei, Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol, Francis Bacon and Yayoi Kusama. All of them can be seen in their creative environment, from the cramped studios of Parisian avant-garde artists in the early 20th century, to the New York lofts of American pop and minimalist artists, to high-profile international studios.
The photographs provide a rare insight: they show both the creative chaos on Francis Bacon's painting table and the neatly arranged statues on Frida Kahlo's shelves. They are the result of an attempt to capture the moment when the spark of creativity flares up.
