Jack Rutberg Fine Arts in Los Angeles will present an historic first in its exhibition entitled “Twin Visions: Jerome Witkin & Joel-Peter Witkin,” uniting for the first time the two internationally celebrated artists – identical twins – in this much anticipated exhibition. “Twin Visions” will open with an evening reception on Saturday, March 1, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm with both artists in attendance. The exhibition will extend through May 3.
Jerome Witkin and Joel-Peter Witkin are acknowledged as two of the greatest contemporary artists in their respective genres: Jerome Witkin is a painter cited by many critics and curators as the finest figurative artist working today, and Joel-Peter Witkin is equally regarded as a master of his genre – a groundbreaking photographer famous for masterfully conjuring his uniquely surreal images. These identical twin brothers, who have enjoyed remarkable success over their respective careers spanning more than fifty years, have never exhibited together. Until now.
