Exhibitions Opening This Week (30 May – 5 June, 2022)
Harriet Gillett & Iona Hutley: The Places We Go
1 June – 30 June, 2022
Preview: 1 June, 6-8PM
‘The Places We Go’ explores the idea of the journey, both as subject matter and as a conceptual framework through which to understand their creative processes. Despite a use of traditional form and symbolism, Gillett and Hutley defy the stagnation of adherence to dogma, and they are unified by a desire to move forward and find new meaning. This exhibition is a celebration of flux and impermanence and its potential for providing new ways of examining past and present.

Nahmad Projects is pleased to present Lucio Fontana: I Tagli.

Martha Jungwirth: All Will Fall
1 June – 30 July, 2022
Private View: 31 May 2022, 6-8pm
A new series of oil paintings by Martha Jungwirth will be presented in her largest solo exhibition to date in London, spanning both gallery floors.
Drawing upon what she terms conceptual ‘pretexts’ – impressions from Martha Jungwirth’s travels, Greek mythology, the appearances of friends and companions, as well as contemporary political events – her work captures fleeting, internal impulses that are recorded in paint. Mingling and merging with mythical or universal subject matter, her compositions hover between abstraction and figuration, the unconscious and the intentional, unbound and free, committed only to their own truth.
Thrush Holmes: What’s it all for?
31 May – 2 July, 2022
PV: Tuesday, 7 June: 6-8PM
Thrush Holmes’ first solo exhibition with Unit London, What’s it all for?, presents the artist’s continuing drive to push the limits of a familiar yet specific motif. Engaging with the art historical legacy of still life, Holmes’ works explore the many permutations that can be found within a single subject. The exhibition unfolds as the latest chapter of the artist’s oeuvre, unveiling the next step in the longer story of a wider process.
