Viewing Leda and the Swan at Victoria Miro Gallery

Step into a curated dreamscape by Minna Moore Ede with Victoria Miro through Vortic Curated. This exhibition unveils new works from sixteen visionary artists, spanning diverse mediums. Drawing inspiration from the Leda and the Swan myth, this contemporary exploration weaves the classical allure of sixteenth-century masters seamlessly into present interpretation.

Inspired by da Vinci and Michelangelo, the exhibition elegantly blends the myth’s sensuality with modernity, using surviving drawings as portals into Renaissance inquiries. In collaboration with Conrad Shawcross, Marina Warner guides us through the nuanced tapestry of myth, revealing divine and mortal facets of mythical progeny. Vortic Curated, a revolutionary series, unfolds virtually on the Vortic platform and with esteemed galleries, transcending traditional boundaries and redefining contemporary artistic expression.
