PARALLAX SCROLLING : N HATFULL, L KEELEY, J SPRAGUE
Jan 27 - Mar 25, 2017
The Parallax scrolling screening programme, curated by Rebecca Lewin together with artists Nicholas Hatfull, Lauren Keeley and Jackson Sprague, explores the treatment of perspective, depth and perception in two and three dimensions. Incorporating a number of different moving image techniques, the short films in the screening programme draw attention to the ways in which space and movement can be suggested on screen, creating both a precursor and a parallel to the experience of moving through the exhibition of works that will follow the screenings. The Parallax scrolling exhibition presents a selection of new and existing work by Nicholas Hatfull, Lauren Keeley and Jackson Sprague. The exhibition and screening will be accompanied by an exhibition text by Rebecca Lewin.

31 Women channels the pioneering spirit of the exhibition at Peggy Guggenheim’s New York gallery in 1943. Featuring the work of artists who participated in the first exhibition, 31 Women will combine work by successive generations of practitioners from the 1940s to the present day.
Taking cues from the transitional moment when Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism co-existed in 1940s New York, two thematic threads will be traced. The first privileging artistic positions embracing the psychological, instinctual and erotic, or which depend on notions of chance, the uncanny and accidental. The second establishing a continuity of formalist inquiry incorporating multiple modes of abstract mark making and production.
