figuration to abstraction. Encompassing oil paintings and works on paper, the exhibition will be accompanied by a
publication that outlines this period of Calderara’s life and career.

RODNEY GRAHAM : CENTRAL QUESTIONS OF PHILOSOPHY
Oct 3 - Nov 3, 2018
Private view Tue Oct 2 6pm - 8pm
Rodney Graham’s exhibition at Lisson Gallery London presents his first new body of lightboxes following the largest presentation of his work in this format last year at Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden, Germany and Museum Voorlinden in Wassenaar, Netherlands. Since creating his first lightbox in 2007, Graham has evolved these works into a larger, more complex series that encompasses various aspects of his artistic practice, such as photography, sculpture and painting. Staged down to the finest of details – from the decoration and soft furnishings to the positioning of the central figure – the works are essentially stage sets for an accumulation of multi-layered fictions, with Graham consistently playing the starring role. Weaving together various subjects, and sprinkled with anecdotal art historical and pop culture references, the works not only comment on the mechanics of image and image-making through Graham’s intricate process but are also employed as a vehicle to examine the epistemology of perception.
