Latifa Echakhch: Night Time

26 March - 4 May, 2022

Informed by the ways in which everyday objects and imagery can be transfigured into signifiers of identity, history, and mythology, Latifa Echakhch’s practice takes the form of painting, installation, sculpture, and sound. Describing her work as “a question of power and postures”, Echakhch states she has “no other goals but questioning the world around me”. Throughout her career, Echakhch has constructed a visual vocabulary of signs, systems, and references that are rooted in her impulse to convey the experience of a feeling, to transcend that which is easily defined and arrive at the intangible.

Reginald Sylvester II: Feelin’ Blue

23 March - 15 May, 2022

Opening 23 March, Reginald Sylvester II will present a solo presentation, Feelin’ Blue, with the Arts Club, London.

Centring on Sylvester’s recent seven-part series of blue paintings, the exhibition tracks a departure from Sylvester’s usual warmer palette in favour of cooler tones, inspired by Portishead’s 1994 avant-garde trip-hop album Dummy.

Agata Bogacka: Fields of Conflict

24 March - 30 April, 2022

Bogacka’s abstract paintings are characterised by competing planes of colour in constant states of transition, creating formal imbalances and tensions. The compositions enact dialogues, negotiations and conflicts by visualising the structural dynamics that underpin all levels of human experience.

Mohammed Sami

23 March - 7 May, 2022

Mostly large-format and acrylic on linen, Mohammed Sami’s paintings depict glimpses of empty, built environments and interior still-lives that – while at first appearing mundane — carry a weight of autobiographical references and affective meaning. With bold colours and flattened perspectives, attention is given as much to textures and details within the frame as it is to the composition as a whole, which is a means to get closer to the way memory works — triggered as it is, through the nuances of everyday minutiae. Some of Sami’s works depict views from outside: Long Night ii (2020), for instance, peers out onto a purple sky from within a fenced enclosure; the streetlamp evoking a municipal atmosphere and a thicket of bush clambering through the metal railings.

Jake Wood-Evans: The Edge of Reality

22 March - 23 April, 2022

Jake Wood-Evans’ newest body of work unfolds in a series of dreamlike moments. At once earthly and strange, the exhibition charts a constellation of ethereal vignettes that float between reality and an alternate existence.
Spectral figures and landscapes occupy an uncanny world where past and present converge; multiple timelines coexist as elements of history seep into our contemporary experience. Using familiar reference material, Wood-Evans combines the ambiguous with the unexpected, ushering us into a space in which each painting lingers on the boundary of an otherworldly plane. In essence, The Edge of Reality calls on us to look further, disrupting what we think we know to give way to new scopes of additional meanings.

Paul Barlow: 00:00:00

24 March - 30 April, 2022

Paul Barlow’s paintings discover and create a visual ecology in which things grounded in the world, and things beyond normal observable reality, begin to cohere. They have the ability of calling to mind the scientific (from the molecular and beyond), the geographic (sedimentary dynamics of rivers or estuaries), or the more quotidian (the duo-chrome test at the opticians). These visual orchestrations (or reverberations) create the time and space between recognition and uncertainty. One is not exactly sure how or when they came into being. Like a mute dream sequence there is something psychological in their geometry, ‘00:00:00’ is the beginning and the end, the start and its finishing.

Among the Machines

24 March - 17 July, 2022

Among the Machines is a major new exhibition of works from the Collection examining how humans interact with machines and non-human entities, featuring new augmented reality artworks created in direct response to the gallery space. As artificial intelligence (AI) develops to potentially surpass us, this exhibition asks: how will we respond to a stage of evolution beyond the human?

9. ASC Gallery

Patternicity: Curated by Christina Niederberger and John Walter

26 March - 23 April, 2022

Patternicity is an exhibition of painting, textile and sculpture by a diverse group of contemporary artists whose works explore the nature of patterns in their (art)historical, national and gendered dimensions. By operating at the intersections of the formal vocabularies employed by art and craft the exhibited works open up questions about identity, order and chaos, the nature of visual algorithms, and re-engineering genres.
