FORMAFANTASMA : CAMBIO
Sep 29 - Dec 1, 2020
Formafantasma (Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin) are designers who dissect the ecological and political responsibilities of their discipline. Their holistic approach reaches back into the history of a particular material used by humans, out towards the patterns of supply chains that have developed to support and expand its use, and forward to the future of that material’s survival in relation to human consumption.
Cambio, from the medieval Latin cambium, ‘change, exchange’, is an ongoing investigation conducted by Formafantasma into the governance of the timber industry. The evolution of this form of commerce over time, and its tentacular expansion across the globe, has made it difficult to regulate. It grew out of the bioprospecting that took place throughout colonial territories during the 19th century, becoming one of the largest industries in the world both in terms of the revenue it generates and the impact it has on the planet’s biosphere.

Click to enlargeIN·FLO·RES·CENCE
Aug 7 - Oct 3, 2020 FINAL WEEK
The Showroom, London and Filmmaker Producer Reece Ewing are honoured to host IN·FLO·RES·CENCE – a new interdisciplinary platform for audiences to encounter compositions and conversations where sound and art can cross-pollinate and regenerate. Championing the power of jazz, this project fosters freedom, experimentation, improvisation, rhythm, polyrhythm, collaboration, dialogue, and sophistication – hard work fueled by epiphanies, a call and response. Social power. Sonic power. It started as an initiative to support musicians and composers in a small way during the COVID-19 pandemic – to connect expressions of everyday life during the unique conditions of our time; highlighting the joy and healing power of music amidst waves of disease, fear, and injustice. By transcending a focus on music as entertainment and celebrating sound as an enduring form of rhizomatic storytelling, the IN·FLO·RES·CENCE project functions as a platform to support musicians in taking up space in the art cosmos and express more pathways for creative practices of sound and art to collide – to summon collective memories, produce future imaginaries, and build a new community.

Click to enlargeANN VERONICA JANSSENS : HOT PINK TURQUOISE
Sep 23 - Nov 29, 2020
Belgian artist Ann Veronica Janssens (b. 1956)  has created an extensive body of work over four decades spanning installations, projections, immersive environments and sculptures. At the core of her practice is an interest in light and its impact on our perception and experience.
This exhibition will be the first major presentation of Janssens’ work in London.
Janssens’ Untitled (Blue Glitter), an expanse of reflective, blue glitter scattered across the floor of the gallery, will occupy the Main Space for the first half of the show, after which it will be replaced by Janssens’ reflective wheeled Bikes, 2001. Visitors are invited to cycle round the Main Gallery on one of five custom-made bicycles with mirrored wheels, which will reflect light on the surrounding gallery walls and floor as the wheels turn.
Across three floors of the Fire Station, sculptures, projections, light works and installations continue Janssens’ exploration of perception and ephemerality.

MILLICENT HAWK : LIFE CYCLE
postponed until late 2020
In the lead-up to Earth Day, Millicent Hawk presents Life Cycle, a new body of work exploring how ants’ status as superorganisms can help us understand individual and environmental wellbeing through mutualism. Amidst a backdrop of lush fauna, this interactive installation transforms the gallery into a tropical, eco gym. Audiences are invited onto bikes to pedal power their own workout video that journeys through countryside roads, and glimpses into many of the ant worlds’ symbiotic relationships and social behaviours. Themes in the video are supported by sculptural configurations and wallworks – comprising plants, cycling accessories and foraged objects – that combine to illuminate these highly organised, social insect-engineers.

HYUNDAI COMMISSION : KARA WALKER

Acclaimed artist Kara Walker presents one of the most ambitious Hyundai Commissions to date.
Fons Americanus is a 13-metre tall working fountain inspired by the Victoria Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace, London.
Rather than a celebration of the British Empire, Walker’s fountain explores the interconnected histories of Africa, America and Europe. She uses water as a key theme, referring to the transatlantic slave trade and the ambitions, fates and tragedies of people from these three continents. Fantasy, fact and fiction meet at an epic scale

ANDY WARHOL
Mar 12 - Nov 15, 2020
This major retrospective is the first Warhol exhibition at Tate Modern for almost 20 years. As well as his iconic pop images of Marilyn Monroe, Coca-Cola and Campbell’s soup cans, it includes works never seen before in the UK. Twenty-five works from his Ladies and Gentlemen series – portraits of black and Latinx drag queens and trans women – are shown for the first time in 30 years. Visitors can also play with his floating Silver Clouds and experience the psychedelic multimedia environment of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable.

Click to enlargeCARA NAHAUL : IMPOSSIBLE GARDEN
Sep 17 - Oct 22, 2020
Cara Nahaul’s vibrant paintings explore the character of spaces, from quiet domestic interiors to idyllic public gardens. Her work examines our relationship with our environment, and the shifts in perception around the value of objects within and outside of her paintings.
Nahaul draws upon visual cues picked up during periods of research and travel as well as memories from her familial archive. Taking inspiration from her childhood visits to Malaysia and Mauritius, her work invites viewers to imagine how they might mine, reconstruct and reflect upon their own personal histories. The paintings presented in Impossible Garden are spaces to dismantle fixed boundaries, and suggest ways interiors and landscapes can become vessels for intimate memories or charged introspection.
Cara Nahaul (b. 1987, London, UK) is an artist living and working in London. She received a BA from Goldsmiths University, London and an MFA from Parsons The New School for Design, New York. Her work has been the subject of recent solo exhibitions at Trade Gallery and Christine Park Gallery. She has been selected for the John Moores prize twice, the inaugural Jerwood Painting Fellowship, nominated for the Contemporary British Painting Prize and completed a yearlong studio residency at the Florence Trust.

Sep 16 - Dec 19, 2020
‘I think it’s interesting how narrative works in a painting — it’s not dictated in real time, but it does have its own time. So you can read the painting and it can unfold, but in a slightly different way for everyone.’ – Dana Schutz.
For Shadow of a Cloud Moving Slowly (2020), Dana Schutz’s first solo exhibition in London, Schutz presents a selection of new paintings and bronze sculptures continuing her visualisation of fictional narratives and subjective experience. At No.11 Duke Street, Schutz presents six bronze sculptures which rearticulate her own pictorial features while at No.3 Duke Street, new large-scale paintings extend Schutz’s attentiveness to painting as an affective space and a continuous history.

Click to enlargeCLAY™
Aug 28 - Sep 30, 2020 FINAL WEEK
TJ Boulting is proud to present a group show exploring the diverse use of clay in art, connecting antiquities with contemporary artists working today. The earliest work in the show is around 4000 years old, the most recent completed just weeks ago. What is it that has drawn artists to use clay for millennia? There is a thread that weaves its way through clay's many guises that connects past and present together.
 
The title CLAY™ refers to the raw material itself, which over thousands of years has straddled various art tribes - ceramics, pottery, sculpture – and with various degrees of proprietorship in each. The artists in this show have been chosen because they do not necessarily fit into a prescribed way of using clay, and have come to it from less traditional routes. Just as the ™ symbol alludes to an attempt to define what clay is used for, somehow clay has evaded ownership by one tribe even after millennia.
 
The juxtaposition of antiquities with contemporary and modern works highlights their connections, disguising what is old and what is new: A Pre-Colombian zoomorphic pot from the Chorrera culture, dating from circa 1200-200 BC, feels as fresh as many of the contemporary works in the show with its expressive form and character.
 
Each of these contemporary artists finds something different in the inherent properties of clay, be it nature, form, narrative, instinct, therapy, function – and shared for thousands of years in the antiquities that went before them.
