Click to enlargeJONATHAN BALDOCK : FACECRIME
Apr 12 - Jun 23, 2019 FINAL WEEK
In his new installation, devised especially for Camden Arts Centre, Jonathan Baldock (b. Pembury, UK) explores contemporary ‘primitivism’ to create a darkly humorous world in which his works are cast as characters in an alternate reality. Borrowing its title from Orwell’s dystopian future fable, ‘1984’, Facecrime meshes together ceramics, basketry, hand-spun yarn, textiles and sound, through precariously stacked, monolithic ceramic columns that crowd and teeter through the gallery space.

GRACE PAILTHORPE | REUBEN MEDNIKOFF
Apr 12 - Jun 23, 2019 FINAL WEEK
'Grace Pailthorpe, Reuben Mednikoff and the Birth of Psychorealism'.
A Tale of Mother’s Bones tells the remarkable story of a unique artistic and personal collaboration. After meeting at a party in 1935, Dr. Grace Pailthorpe (1883–1971), a trained surgeon, and Reuben Mednikoff (1906–1972), an artist and designer, began collaborating on a project that would bring together art, writing and psychoanalysis in an attempt to create a better society.

WONG PING: HEART DIGGER
Jul 5 - Sep 15, 2019
Private view Thu Jul 4 6.30pm - 9.30pm
Wong Ping creates digital and sculptural works that reveal very human, and often universal fantasies, through absurd narratives. Drawing anecdotally from his own social encounters, he elaborates his stories into darkly humorous tales that touch on political and cultural anxieties.

ELIZABETH MURRAY: FLYING BYE
Jul 5 - Sep 15, 2019
Private view Thu Jul 4 6.30pm - 9.30pm
The exhibition highlights a dramatic decade that saw Murray’s work dominate the art scene of 1980s New York. Her innovative paintings paved the way for a revival of the medium that included Julian Schnabel, David Salle and Anselm Kiefer. This landmark exhibition will focus on her vibrant, monumental, multi-panel and three-dimensional paintings and innovative works on paper from the 1980s and early 1990s.
