Caroline Walker: Lisa

29 April - 28 May, 2022

Private View: Thursday, April 28th: 6-8PM

Caroline Walker’s cinematic paintings and works on paper reveal the diverse experiences of women living in contemporary society. For her first exhibition at the gallery, Walker will present a new body of work that traces the daily life of her sister-in-law Lisa, as she becomes a mother. Drawing on photographic source material, these paintings blur the boundary between objective documentary and personal experience.

Manuel Mathieu: Keeping things whole

28 April – 28 May 2022

Preview: 28 April: 5–8PM

Mathieu (b. 1986) is a multi-disciplinary artist, working across painting, ceramics and installation. His work investigates themes of historical violence, erasure and cultural approaches to physicality, nature and spiritual legacy. Mathieu’s interests are partially informed by his upbringing in Haiti, and his experience emigrating to Montréal at the age of 19. Freely operating in between and borrowing from numerous historical influences and traditions, the artist aims to find meaning through a spiritual or asemic mode of apparition.

Damned If I Do

28 April - 8 May, 2022

Opening: 27 April: 6-9.30PM

Damned if I do; damned if I don’t. A paradox of daily existence surrounding the haunted doublings that emerge from society’s double standards. The virgin-whore, the untouchable priestess, the innocent temptress. A series of female archetypes, their potential power held in check by social conditions.

Marcus Cope: Silver Linings

29 April – 11 June, 2022

Opening: Thursday 28 April, 6-8PM

PEER is pleased to present Silver Linings, a new exhibition by artist Marcus Cope and his first solo show in a public institution. Cope’s enigmatic paintings examine the unreliability of memory and how personal histories are recollected or recorded. Working with oil paint on coarse grain jute, cotton duck canvas and paper, Cope’s paintings reflect significant, complex, and often painful moments in his life. While most of the works presented are on large canvases, Cope fluctuates between scales, creating smaller paper studies or copies of larger works that revisit and merge existing paintings into new compositions.

7. Pilar Corrias

Vivien Zhang: undo undo undo

26 April - 28 May, 2022

Preview: Tuesday, April 26th 5-8PM

Pilar Corrias is pleased to present undo undo undo, Vivien Zhang’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Zhang’s work demands a confrontation with the subjective ways that we attribute meaning and value, and the paradoxes of our digital information age.

8. Camden Art Centre

Lily van der Stokker: Thank You Darling

Preview: Thursday April 28th, 6:30-9:30PM

The exhibition will bring together a group of works made by van der Stokker between 1989 and 2021, which address ideas of society, home, friendship, work, finances, illness and care; as well as speaking to this extraordinary contemporary moment. While some works have previously been realised in other contexts and spaces, others are presented across Camden Art Centre’s galleries for the first time. The exhibition will also include a number of original drawings on paper and works on canvas produced over the last 30 years.

9. Huxley-Parlour

Rodney Graham

27 April - 25 June, 2022

Rodney Graham returns to London for his thirteenth show with Lisson Gallery, exhibiting a new suite of paintings developed from a series begun with an online exhibition, ‘Painting Problems’ two years ago. While an inveterate and self-confessed appropriator in the Duchampian mode, Graham has now entered a self-reflexive mode of painting, drawing from his own past projects, rather than wholly from art historical precedent.
