Jennifer Packer: The Eye Is Not Satisfied With Seeing
19 May - 22 August, 2021
“My inclination to paint, especially from life, is a completely political one. We belong here. We deserve to be seen and acknowledged in real time. We deserve to be heard and to be imaged with shameless generosity and accuracy.” – Jennifer Packer
This exhibition, the artist’s first outside of the US, includes paintings and drawings from the past decade alongside recent work.
Sedrick Chisom: Twenty Thousand Years of Fire and Snow
15 July - 21 August, 2021
Pilar Corrias is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Sedrick Chisom, running 15 July – 20 August 2021 at the Eastcastle Street gallery. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in the UK, showing paintings and drawings portraying a post-apocalyptic America. Sitting within the Afrofuturist tradition, Chisom’s imagined future is a mystical, speculative narrative which considers the histories of racism and otherness.
IRL (In Real Life)
8 July - 21 August, 2021
Timothy Taylor is delighted to present IRL (In Real Life), a group exhibition of paintings, sculptures and textile-based works. The title of the exhibition draws from a phrase popularised on the Internet in the mid-1990s, which refers to the division in social relationships between life online and offline—the ‘real one’. Yet in the context of a pandemic that profoundly reduced human contact, cyberspace has come to dominate the ways we work, socialise and connect with the world, blurring the distinction between real and virtual experiences. IRL features work by Kesewa Aboah, Rebecca Ackroyd, Alma Berrow, Lily Bertrand-Webb, Will Brickel, Sahara Longe, Lydia Pettit, Jiab Prachakul, Alexis Ralaivao, Erin M. Riley, Antonia Showering and Honor Titus.
