ONLINE | MATTHEW BARNEY : COSMIC HUNT
Autumn 2020
This September Matthew Barney presents the online project Cosmic Hunt, featuring seven new drawings extending from the artist's acclaimed body of work Redoubt. The works and virtual site, mark the latest stage of an ongoing project that centres on the narratives developed within Barney's 2018 feature-length film of the same title. The film, cast sculptures and electroplated engravings of Redoubt will also be the subject of an extensive presentation at the Hayward Gallery, London, in 2021.

OFF-SITE | DIS / JONATHAN HOROWITZ
Wednesday 4 November, 11am-8pm & by appt
DIS / Jonathan Horowitz is a joint exhibition presented by Sadie Coles HQ and Project Native Informant (both London). Presented in dialogue, the works on view by American artists Jonathan Horowitz and the New York-based collective DIS employ a range of different media to inhabit pre-existing imagery drawn from contemporary culture. Addressing the complexities of both personal and social politics, the art of DIS and Horowitz draws upon sources ranging from that of mass-media, to the canon of art history. Presented during the aftermath of the United States Presidential Election of 2020, the social commentary implicit within the works gains ever more poignancy set against the tensions of the period.

FORMAFANTASMA : CAMBIO
Sep 29 - Dec 15, 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 enlargeJENNIFER PACKER
Nov 18, 2020 - Mar 14, 2021
(Serpentine Gallery)
This survey exhibition, the artist’s first in a European institution, will include paintings and drawings from the past decade alongside recent work. New York-based Jennifer Packer is known for painting intimate portraits of friends and family members and flower still lifes. Working from a combination of observation, improvisation and memory, Packer’s paintings and large-scale drawings reveal an emotional and physical fragility of life. Characterised by a vibrant approach to colour and a powerful play of scale, she layers, reveals and obscures her subjects through constant shifts between grounds, dissolving figuration into near abstraction.
Packer transforms the art historical traditions of portraiture and still life within a contemporary context and urgency. On occasion, she describes her flower compositions as funerary bouquets and vessels of personal grief; these paintings about loss are often made in response to tragedies of state and institutional violence against Black Americans. While the casual repose of her portraits is the result of her care for the sitters, Packer acknowledges her choice to paint figures as political, stating: ‘Representation and particularly, observation from life, are ways of bearing witness and sharing testimony’.

Click to enlargeJIM SHAW: HOPE AGAINST HOPE
Oct 20, 2020 - Jan 16, 2021
Simon Lee Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Los Angeles-based artist Jim Shaw, his first at the London gallery since 2016. As the United States prepares for its upcoming Presidential election, Shaw is more analytical and daring than ever before in his satirical depictions and social commentary.
 
Shaw is celebrated for the outlandish narratives and sharp wit with which he brings his dystopian, albeit eerily familiar, universe to life. His provocative tableaux, whether sinister, comedic, or somewhere in between, are pieced together from the artist’s own imagination and his prolific collection of magazine and newspaper cut outs, posters and prints, comic books and gimmicky advertisements, which he began collecting during his teenage years in Michigan in the 1960s.

Sep 23 - Nov 29, 2020 FINAL WEEK
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.

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.

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 enlargeKIKI SMITH : AUTUMN
Oct 2 - Dec 2, 2020 FINAL WEEK
Kiki Smith (b. 1954, Nuremberg, Germany) is recognized for her prolific and wide-ranging multidisciplinary career spanning over four decades, which has addressed the social, cultural and spiritual aspects of human nature. Much of Smith’s work is inspired by her own perceptions of animals and the natural world as it changes through the seasons, blended with the imagery of folklore, mythology and mysticism. Kiki Smith: Autumn evokes this lyrical confluence between the earthly and the fantastic, which will be examined through a selection of small sculptures, etchings and prints created between 2014 and the present day.
