Click to enlargeCAROLINE MAY : MALE IMPERATIVES
Jan 17 - Mar 7, 2020
Caroline May’s work explores the performance of masculinity, the social and cultural construction of gender and the divergence of desire through a series of portraits, landscapes and collages.
 
In her ongoing series, The Hustler, the artist reverses the power dynamic between photographer and subject by directing her female gaze towards the male subject. The exhibition will also include a series of collages, which feature imagery appropriated from fashion editorials in which the artist intervenes by ‘erasing’ the features of the model, therefore stripping them of a fixed gender.
 
May’s work is a reflection on the duplicitous nature of photography, and how the medium is being used to impose and institutionalze definitions of gender, identity and social behaviour.
 
Curated by Vassilios Doupas.

IN FLUX : CAROLINE MAY, MALE IMPERATIVES
Feb 26, 2020 6:00pm - 7:30pm talk/event
In Flux: Masculinity, Queer Identity and the Performance of Self
 
Camberwell Space invites you to a Panel Discussion, in conjunction with the exhibition Caroline May, Male Imperatives
 
Panel
Vassilios Doupas (Curator), Prem Sahib (Artist), E-J Scott (Museum of Transology)
 
Vassilios Doupas is Curator of Programmes at the Contemporary Arts Society in London, a charitable organization that acquires contemporary art for 70 museums around the UK, including Tate, Victoria and Albert Museum and the Scottish National Galleries. Previously, Vassilios was the Head of Fundraising for the Athens Biennial. He has worked closely with both emerging and established artists and has organised and advised on a number of exhibitions at galleries and public institutions including the Whitechapel. He has contributed to Art Monthly and The Art Newspaper (Greek edition). Vassilios holds an MA in Curatorial Practice from Goldsmiths, University of London.
 
Prem Sahib (b.1982 London,England) previously studied at The Slade School of Fine Art 2002-06 and has an MA in Material & Visual Culture from University College London (2006-08). Sahib’s practice incorporates both sculpture and painting that appears abstract
and minimal, formally clean and precise. However each is work arises from convictions regarding sexuality, intimacy, desire, and community. The work deals with notions of encounter and presence, codifying minimalist forms with anecdote. Most recently his practice has expanded to include installation and event-based work.
 
E-J Scott is a curator, fashion historian, academic and cultural producer. His work currently focusses on using historic collections to tackle societal misconceptions of misrepresented communities, harnessing the social agency of museums to create broader positive social change through museology and exhibition making. This includes curating the Queer Walk Through British Art and Queer & Now at Tate Britain, the Museum of Transology at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, his previous work at the National Trust (Assistant Costume Curator) writing and co-presenting the Prejudice and Pride podcast series with Clare Balding, and his role on Grayson Perry’s series Born Risky.

Jan 17 - Apr 5, 2020
Vivian Suter’s (b. 1949, Buenos Aires) paintings are born from the terrain and habitat that surrounds their making. Working amid the wilderness of her lakeside studio in Guatemala, her large, unstretched canvases are hung outdoors to absorb the traces of falling leaves, rain, passing animals and mud. Presenting the finished works as an immersive cacophony—suspended, overlapping and environmental—Suter’s streaked and soaked canvases, swathed in colour, form a permeable membrane between nature and civilization.

ATHANASIOS ARGIANAS : HOLLOWED WATER
Jan 17 - Apr 5, 2020
Athanasios Argianas’ (b. 1976, Athens) exhibition will present new film, sculpture and musical works that emerge from his interest in redundant technologies and the traces of modernism found in unthought of places. Drawing on the social and historical specificity of acoustic forms and visual aesthetics, Argianas developed several new works during his residency at Camden Arts Centre in 2018-19. These include modular ceramic sculptures that trace the nuanced shifts from the curves of art nouveau to 1930s modernism, as well as casts and replicas of acoustic technologies, including the Ondes Martenot Resonator – a prototypical instrument that tilts and bends sound, treating it as a tactile material.

Feb 14 - Mar 14, 2020
CHARLIE SMITH LONDON is delighted to present Hugh Mendes in his first solo since his sell-out 2018 exhibition ‘Autorretrato’. In response to that exhibition, where he made a series of obituary paintings based almost entirely on self-portraits of male artists, Mendes switches focus here. Having emphasized the inherited bias of a male dominated history of western art, Mendes continues by affirming the breadth and power of women artists from the 16th to 20th centuries who are influential and inspirational to him.

'the destructors' is shot on location in Tower Hamlets, east London. Reflecting on Perretta’s experience as a young man of Bangladeshi heritage, the work reconsiders the figure of alienated male youth to explore the complexities of ‘coming of age’ for young Muslim men living in the UK.

Feb 13 - Mar 21, 2020
A new body of paintings and painted objects by Vicken Parsons (b. 1957). 'Breath' is her largest solo exhibition in the UK in over three years.
 
Best-known for her small-scale paintings which evoke architectural spaces Parsons uses thin layers of oil paint on thick plywood panel. The title of the exhibition, 'Breath', refers to the artist’s use of painting as meditation and as a contemplative counterpoint to global concerns. Paintings will be shown alongside new three-dimensional works, which Parsons describes as ‘painted objects’.
