Last Chance to See These Summer Exhibitions
The Male Gaze From Larry Stanton to Now
5 July – 30 July, 2022
The Artist Room is pleased to present The Male Gaze From Larry Stanton to Now, a group exhibition featuring works by Kenneth Bergfeld, Jimmy DeSana, Cary Kwok, Paul P., Leon Pozniakow, Larry Stanton and David Weishaar.
Departing from the practice of Larry Stanton (1947–1984), a New York–based portrait artist championed by David Hockney and known for documenting bohemian and queer life in the city and beyond, this exhibition explores the male-on-male gaze through the lens of an intergenerational group of emerging and established artists from Europe and the United States.
Alastair Mackinven: Numble Bound To A Stripped Standing Tree
9 June – 31 July, 2022
Maureen Paley is pleased to announce a new exhibition by Alastair Mackinven. This will be his third exhibition at the gallery and his first solo exhibition presented at our location at 60 Three Colts Lane.
Henni Alftan: Contour
10 June – 30 July, 2022
Contour is Henni Alftan’s first gallery show in London and presents new works that continue her exploration into the relation between the medium of painting and the conceptual idea of image-making.
In her practice, Alftan examines the threshold where personal connection and recognition transform paint into image and image into meaning. Based on a process of observation and deduction, her figurative works are constructions of lines, proportions and flat planes of colors, interspersed with intricate patterns and details.
André Butzer: Wanderer
9 June – 30 July, 2022
One of many wanderers on this planet earth, André Butzer (b. 1973, Stuttgart), seeking his own place, explores the essence of humanity, its extremes inherently interlinked, and one aspect impossible to realise without its opposite. Since the 1990s, he has grappled with his legacy, artistic and political, with the likes of Henry Ford, Walt Disney and Henri Matisse as his “patron saints.” Butzer journeys via the conduit of his paintings, themselves portals into the world of NASAHEIM, a utopian universe created by the artist as an ever-unattainable measure to aspire to.
Harminder Judge: Rising Skin from Rock and Chin
10 June – 30 July, 2022
The Sunday Painter is pleased to announce the opening of Rising Skin from Rock and Chin, a solo exhibition of new works by London based artist Harminder Judge. A poem by Rosanna Puyol will accompany the exhibition.
Inaugural Group Show: Kaleidoscope
9 June – 30 July 2022
Workplace is pleased to inaugurate its new permanent space on 50 Mortimer Street with a group show of new and recent works by represented and invited artists.
In keeping with the gallery’s founding principle of creating opportunities for artists to show their work within a supportive and critically engaged context, the inaugural exhibition will showcase new and recent works by the gallery’s represented artists alongside the work of artists who they have invited to participate. Kaleidoscope will give an insight into the breadth of the gallery programme, presenting works across media, from video to painting, from artists at various stages of their career and from disparate locations. By inviting artists to nominate other artists who they have an affinity with, the inaugural group show approaches the curatorial process in a unique way, welcoming open-ended collaborations built on personal connections, mutual respect and admiration reflecting Workplace’s ethos and mission.
Katherine Bernhardt: Why is a mushroom growing in my shower?
Taking place at the gallery’s London location, the exhibition will feature new large-scale paintings that include motifs from Bernhardt’s unique visual lexicon, which culls from an irreverent American pop vernacular as well as her own life and the broader culture. These works crackle with electrifying colour and the artist’s lively brushwork, and feature familiar imagery such as the Pink Panther, Garfield, and E.T., in addition to fresh subjects like Ditto from Pokémon, Crocs shoes, psilocybin mushrooms, and bathroom showers.
Tal R: Untitled Flowers
26 May – 30 July, 2022
In his work Tal R often employs apparently simple compositional devices and motifs from everyday life to create complex, atmospheric worlds that, beginning with the recognisable and known, expand or collapse into spaces of enchantment or ambiguity, heady with atmosphere and colour. For the past few years he has made paintings and drawings of flowers in vases. Each work depicts a bunch of flowers picked by the artist from around his home in the Danish countryside, presented in a vase on a tabletop within a closely cropped interior space.
Martha Jungwirth: All Will Fall
1 June – 30 July, 2022
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.
