Hurvin Anderson: Reverb

12 October - 4 December, 2021

Over the last three years Hurvin Anderson has focused his attention on a particular subject – or ‘image’ as he refers to it – a hotel complex on the north coast of Jamaica which he visited on a trip to the country of his heritage. Reverb, spanning both spaces at Thomas Dane Gallery is the first time the artist will present works exclusively from this series, and offers a unique insight into one of Anderson’s most arresting cycles of paintings to date.

Eric Fischl: The Krefeld Project

12 October - 4 December, 2021

Eric Fischl: The Krefeld Project brings together ten historic paintings from the artist’s important series initiated in 2002. Portraying two figures amid elegant interiors of a modernist villa, the works present an affecting narrative of human connection set between fact and fiction.

No 20 Arts is delighted to present YIELD, a group show featuring artworks by Victoria Cantons, Hoa Dung Clerget, Katya Granova, Alex Lewis, Snyder Moreno Martín and Khushna Sulaman-Butt. This exhibition showcases recent developments in contemporary art: from paintings and etchings, to sculpture and installation. Harvested for display, ‘YIELD’ gives title to a selection of the artists’ produce, while reflecting upon the pressures of the past year.

Jeff Koons & Cy Twombly: Primal Gestures

12 October - 18 December, 2021

Jeff Koons & Cy Twombly: Primal Gestures brings together a highly unusual pairing of two giants of post-war art. Highlighting two seemingly opposing practices, the exhibition exposes Twombly’s rich visual lexicon of mark-making and gestural abstraction, pairing it with the reductive nature of Koons’ machine-made fabrications while teasing out underlying elements that suggest a commonality that is perhaps not all it appears to be.

Julião Sarmento: Arena

28 October - 3 December, 2021

Pilar Corrias is pleased to present an exhibition of never before seen paintings by Portuguese artist Julião Sarmento (1948-2021), titled Arena. The iconography and titles of each of the works, the last he made before his death in May 2021, are loosely based on drawings by Francisco de Goya, seen by Sarmento at the Museo del Prado in 2019.

Option Nyahunzvi: Kwatinobva Kunoyera (Sacred Origin)

9 November - 4 December, 2021

Unit London is pleased to present Option Nyahunzvi’s first solo exhibition in London, entitled Kwatinobva Kunoyera (Sacred Origins). The title draws from a Shona saying that refers to the artist’s own spiritual roots. The expression complicates the concept of origin through notions of space, place and identity.

Charmaine Watkiss: The Seed Keepers

16 November - 5 December, 2021

Tiwani Contemporary is pleased to present the first solo exhibition of British artist Charmaine Watkiss at the gallery.

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.

Leon Kossoff: A Life In Painting

30 September - 4 December, 2021

Annely Juda Fine Art, Mitchell-Innes & Nash, and L.A. Louver are delighted to announce Leon Kossoff: A Life in Painting, a major touring retrospective of paintings by seminal British artist Leon Kossoff (1926 – 2019) that will open in London in September 2021 and travel to New York and Los Angeles in early 2022. Comprising 58 works, this touring show will be the first posthumous and largest exhibition of Kossoff’s paintings in a commercial setting to date, and coincides with the publication of Leon Kossoff: Catalogue Raisonné of the Oil Paintings released by Modern Art Press. The exhibition is curated by Andrea Rose, former Director of Visual Arts at the British Council and editor of the catalogue raisonné.

Matteo Massagrande: The Mine and the Trees

5 November - 5 December, 2021

Pontone Gallery is proud to present this important new show by distinguished Italian painter Matteo Massagrande. He has produced a suite of paintings inspired by Van Gogh, and in particular certain passages from letters he wrote to his brother, Theo. Earlier this year these works were exhibited at ‘Attorno a Van Gogh’ which ran alongside the major exhibition ‘Van Gogh. I Colori Della Vita’ put together by eminent curator Marco Goldin. He sought Massagrande’s involvement and set in train the development of these nine paintings.
