Vali Myers (2 August 1930 – 12 February 2003)

Vali Myers was a unique spirit born out of time. She lived her extraordinary life like a bright flame, cutting her own unique path and living on her own terms: a tightrope walker - one foot in this world and one in a dreamworld that we can only glimpse in her profound artwork.
Artist, dancer, shamaness, muse and powerful creatrix, Vali left a body of work which started with her early drawings in the cafes of Paris in 1950 and spanned till her death in 2003. 
The exhibition at LUMA is incredibly exciting as it features MANY original artworks from private collections in the US and Europe that probably won't see the light of day again. 
Do yourself a favour and get out there before November 1st ... it is a trek worth the effort!
