Click to enlargeKIMONO : KYOTO TO CATWALK
Aug 27 - Oct 25, 2020
This exhibition will present the kimono as a dynamic and constantly evolving icon of fashion, revealing the sartorial, aesthetic and social significance of the garment from the 1660s to the present day, both in Japan and the rest of the world. Rare 17th and 18th century kimono will be displayed for the first time in the UK, together with fashions by major designers and iconic film and performance costumes. The kimono’s recent reinvention on the streets of Japan will also be explored through work by an exciting new wave of contemporary designers and stylists. Highlights of the exhibition include a kimono created by Living National Treasure Kunihiko Moriguchi, the dress designed for Björk by Alexander McQueen and worn on the album cover Homogenic, and original Star Wars costumes modelled on kimono by John Mollo and Trisha Biggar.

Gallery presentation 4-27 September
This autumn, Waddington Custot celebrates the work of contemporary sculptor Pablo Reinoso with the launch of two Special Focus digital exhibitions and an installation of some of the artist’s most iconic works in the Cork St gallery space. These presentations, accessible both online and in person, seek to explore the Franco-Argentine artist’s ongoing interest in the contemporary interaction between humanity and the environment.
Gallery presentation: 4-27 September.
Online presentation continues to 25 October.

FABIENNE VERDIER : VORTEX
Oct 6 - Nov 17, 2020
This year, Waddington Custot will present 'Vortex', a remarkable new series by the celebrated contemporary abstract painter, Fabienne Verdier.
Through her work, Verdier gives physical form to the usually invisible and intangible forces within nature, incorporating a wide range of natural phenomena, from gravity and kinetic energy to sound waves and vibrations. In these large-scale paintings, seen for the first time at Waddington Custot, Verdier continues her exploration into the painting of sounds and music, in particular the visual representation of breathing techniques employed by sopranos performing Mozart’s arias. The Vortex paintings are characterised by a single large, whirling helix, which dominates the composition and echoes the ascendant scaling sound of an
aria.

Click to enlargeGEORG BASELITZ : DARKNESS GOLDNESS
Sep 4 - Nov 14, 2020
Since the beginning of his career, Georg Baselitz has painted ‘monstrous’ hands and feet. His famous ‘Heroes’ series of the mid-1960s, for example, show battered figures with over- or undersize extremities standing in blasted landscapes. Their hands bear stigmata or hold tiny burning buildings or farm implements – symbols, perhaps, of the cycles of destruction and regeneration in 20th-century Germany.
In his new paintings, Baselitz creates striking images of hands that emerge out of dark backgrounds and hang open and limp. In them, as in all his paintings, Baselitz is uninterested in conventional representation. His skillful draftsmanship is evident in related ink-on-paper drawings, which are more traditionally realistic, tracing intricate folds of skin and expressive configurations of the fingers. By contrast, in the paintings Baselitz works against his own dextrousness to produce something that exists in a realm between abstraction and figuration.

Click to enlargeMAGDA STAWARSKA-BEAVAN : SPACES AND MOMENTS
Sep 24 - Nov 28, 2020
Through a process of listening to first-hand accounts of Polish Jewish women’s lives, days spent walking the streets of Lodz in her native Poland and hours of perusing through street plans, maps and architectural drawings in the archive, Magda Stawarska-Beavan has embarked upon a project which allows us to glimpse the traces of lives obliterated, songs unheard, clothes unmade and fabulous buildings replaced by busy parking lots and scruffy children’s parks. What have the natives leave to share about the city, and what can a stranger hear and see more clearly because of unfamiliarity?
 
In the main gallery on the ground floor are delicate panels of printed and hand-painted paper wafting and fluttering from the ceiling, which depict, in shades of sublime grey, copper, cream, ochre and terracotta, strange and unhappy rooms where the old slow rituals of parting and farewell have long since faded from their mysterious interiors. The image of old trees, wrought iron works and gravestones are accompanied by the background music of birdsong and the traffic noise of today, but a dynamic layer of cultural fabric has been ripped from the landscape and has never been replaced or mended.
 
Continuing to the downstairs galleries, a number of architectural plans and drawings hang expectantly, waiting to be turned into places to live or to worship. Layered on top of these the audience finds the same ornate and sacred buildings now reduced to empty spaces; the moving images of the city, including its courtyards, streets, shops and workplaces, are slowly smeared across the wilful destruction of a vibrant layer of life at the heart of an industrial city.
 
Her desire to help audiences remember what has been lost or forgotten has driven the artist to create the exhibition, quiet in appearance, but daring in concept. This desire is lined with tender affection: the artist painstakingly unfolds the city’s hidden narratives by tracing its history with much care, always with deeply felt connection with the subjects. This sense of connection, of roots, or belonging, is what makes this show feel unambiguously humane.

PORTIA ZVAVAHERA : NDAKAVATA PASI NDIKAMUTSWA NEKUTI ANONDITSIGIRA
Sep 15 - Oct 31, 2020
David Zwirner is pleased to present Ndakavata pasi ndikamutswa nekuti anonditsigira, an exhibition of new paintings by the Zimbabwean artist Portia Zvavahera. The title translates from Shona to English as ‘I took my rest in sleep and then I awoke for He sustained me.’ On view in The Upper Room at the gallery’s London location, this will be Zvavahera’s first solo presentation in Europe.
In her paintings, Zvavahera gives form to emotions that manifest from other realms and dimensions beyond the domains of everyday life and thought. Her vivid imagery is rooted in the cornerstones of our earthly existence—life and death, pain and pleasure, isolation and connection, and love and loss. These deeply personal visions are realised through layers of vibrant colour and ornate, veil-like patterns that the artist builds up into palimpsestic surfaces through a combination of expressive brushwork and elaborate printmaking techniques. Zvavahera’s compositions draw on particular traditions of figuration in past and present Zimbabwe, first expressed in the work of Thomas Mukarobgwa in the 1960s, while also pointing to postwar artistic practices that probe the nature of the human condition.

JOSH SMITH
Sep 15 - Oct 31, 2020
David Zwirner is pleased to present concurrent exhibitions of new work by the New York–based artist Josh Smith. On view at the gallery’s London location and at 69th Street in New York, the shows will feature a new group of paintings depicting empty streetscapes from a series that the artist began in March 2020.
