We Are Such Stuff As Dreams Are Made on

17 November - 2 December, 2021

Private View: 16th November 6pm-9pm

Open Wednesday – Saturday: 1pm – 5pm and by Appointment

The Cello Factory, 33-34 Cornwall Rd, London, SE1 8TJ

Taking words by Prospero in Shakespeare’s The Tempest as a starting point, Aleph Contemporary presents an exhibition of paintings by ten British artists all about our inner worlds of visions and dreams, and our escapades for cheap thrills.
Curated by Aleph’s Artistic Director, Vivienne Roberts, this exhibition is about the opposite of IRL experience – our inner-life, unreal psychological world. Far away from socio-economic-political reality, these artists re-connect us to our own imaginations by taking us on a journey through theirs.

Eleanor Moreton: Winterflower

16 November - 24 November, 2021

Private View: 16th November, 6-8pm

46 Great Titchfield Street, London

Arusha Gallery is delighted to present WinterFlower by Eleanor Moreton, featuring over 20 new works,  centred on a wintery landscape. “Hibernia”, a term meaning “land of winter” features heavily in the titles of these pieces, recalling Moreton’s months spent in Lockdown last year.

In these paintings, a family goes about their daily life, and children play in a peaceful, pensive manner, surrounded by the flora and fauna of the woods. Eleanor’s work recalls the idea of a post war nuclear family, much like that of her parents’ generation, where in the wake of the disruption and heartbreak of the war there was an innate desire to return to normality, serenity and suburban life.

The Seed Keepers (2021) is a new series of drawings that fuse Watkiss’ interests in botany, herbalism, ecology, history, and Afrofuturism. Researching the medicinal and psychical capabilities of plants, Watkiss has personified a matrilineal pantheon of plant warriors safeguarding and facilitating cross-generational knowledge and empowerment.

Joanna Pousette-Dart

16 November - 22 January 2022

For her first exhibition in London, New York-based artist Joanna Pousette-Dart will present a selection of recent paintings. Rendered in her signature format of multi-panel curved canvases, these dynamic compositions incorporate a myriad of influences, fusing together the beauty and power of light and shape to offer a poetic illusion to the experience of place, nature and one’s surrounding space.

Born in New York, the daughter of Richard Pousette-Dart, a founding member of the New York School of painting, Pousette-Dart attended Bennington College in Vermont and studied with Color Field painters Kenneth Noland and Larry Poons, among others. Never at home with a formalist concept of painting, she has pursued a more poetic approach to format and image throughout her career.

Sarah Morris: Means of Escape

19 November, 2021 - 9 January, 2022

Private View: Thursday 18 November (6pm – 8pm) 

White Cube Bermondsey is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Sarah Morris. Featuring film, paintings and works on paper that explore and create an architecture of forms, the exhibition furthers Morris’s interest in the psychology and perception of space and time.

Morris considers the city as a living, evolving organism and thinks of these new paintings as ‘anthropocene forms’ − functional, engineered, yet fragile. She says that her paintings create ‘an internal, imaginary, spatial sense that is slow, precise and quite open […] a set of images and realities that haven’t been made before’. In her new ‘Spiderweb’ series, she draws on the recent experience of enforced restrictions and confinement that has resulted in an abrupt shift in temporal focus and social habits. Taking the improvised structure of a spiderweb as their starting point, the paintings’ arrangements of lines converge and fragment, creating shard-like shapes and dots of varying sizes, which emerge, hover and recede from the paintings’ surfaces. Rendered in Morris’s recognisable palette, the paintings explore spatial disorientation, perception and cognition.

Tunji Adeniyi-Jones: That Which Binds Us

19 November, 2021 - 9 January, 2022

Private View: Thursday 18 November (6pm – 8pm) 

White Cube Bermondsey is pleased to present ‘That Which Binds Us’an exhibition of new paintings by Tunji Adeniyi-Jones and his first with the gallery. Coinciding with the artist’s inaugural UK museum presentation ‘Astral Reflections’ at Charleston in Sussex, the works focus on expressive figuration and, as the artist states, ‘how the transformative nature of the Black experience is nourished by travel, movement and cultural hybridity’. Informed by his own Yoruba heritage, in his paintings Adeniyi-Jones fuses West African mythology and iconography with the seeming immutability of the Western art canon.

Paula Rego: The Forgotten

19 November, 2021 - 22 January, 2022

Victoria Miro is delighted to announce The Forgotten, a major exhibition by Paula Rego. To be held across the entirety of its Wharf Road spaces, the gallery’s first solo exhibition by the artist brings together significant individual works and important series, many rarely shown, drawn principally from the past 20 years.

Celebrated as a peerless storyteller, Paula Rego has often brought immense psychological insight and imaginative power to the stories that we try to suppress or tell ourselves only in private. Testament to a career spent exploring these hidden narratives and their associated stigmas, The Forgotten encircles themes and subjects that are often masked or concealed – out of politeness or embarrassment – such as mental illness and old age.
