Click to enlargeLUIGI GHIRRI : COLAZIONE SULL’ERBA
Oct 2 - Nov 16, 2019
The 1969 Apollo 11 view of Earth had a lasting influence on Luigi Ghirri (1943-1992), who understood the photograph as ‘the picture which contained all the pictures of the world: graffiti, frescoes, prints, paintings, writings, photographs, books, films.’ On describing what really became the first image of the world, Ghirri continued: ‘The power of containing everything vanished in front of the impossibility of seeing everything at the same time.’ Seeing everything, or rather, seeing the things that others cannot — the poetry in the mundane, the beauty of the arcane — is the gift of some artists. It was one of Ghirri’s great talents, through his own inquisitiveness and a love for the ambiguous. One he mastered throughout his photographic oeuvre, and evident in his emblematic series ‘Colazione sull’Erba’ (1971-1974), on view at Thomas Dane Gallery. The work catalogues and reveals the manicured landscape and the nature of domestic suburbs in his adoptive town of Modena, signalling directions he would pursue in later work.

Sep 12 - Oct 19, 2019 FINAL WEEK
Distant Relative is a reconstruction; somewhere between schoolroom, cinema, and court of law. It is a site of shared and elusive personal histories.
 
Since 2014, British moving image and performance artist Michelle Williams Gamaker has been developing ‘fictional activism’: the restoration of people of colour performing in 20th century British and Hollywood studio films from marginalised characters to central figures, who return in her works to challenge the fictional injustices to which they have been historically consigned.

We all experience birth - and yet, unlike sex and death (art's favourite subjects) encounters with birth in contemporary art are rare. Birth is the universal subject - so why is it so obviously absent in contemporary art?
This group show, curated with Charlotte Jansen, explores the representation of birth and surrounding topics, from pregnancy to egg freezing, and the taboo, trauma, joy, pain, and psychological and physical realms it inhabits.

Click to enlargeMONA HATOUM : REMAINS TO BE SEEN
Sep 12 - Nov 3, 2019
White Cube is pleased to present an exhibition by Mona Hatoum. The first presentation of her work in London since Tate Modern in 2016, it includes new and recent installation, sculpture and works on paper.
Hatoum’s work reflects on subjects that arise from our current global condition, including systems of confinement, the architecture of surveillance and themes of mobility and conflict. Channelling the poetic charge and metaphoric resonance of a wide range of materials from steel, brick and concrete, to rubble, glass and human hair, in this exhibition she explores the elemental forms of the grid and the sphere, drawing on both the geometric rigour of Minimalist sculpture and the possibilities for its formal collapse.

HARMONY HAMMOND
Sep 12 - Nov 3, 2019
White Cube is pleased to present the first European solo exhibition by Harmony Hammond (b.1944, Chicago). The American artist, curator, author and activist was a pivotal figure of the feminist art movement in New York, co-founding in 1972, A.I.R., the first women’s cooperative art gallery in the city, and the journal Heresies: A Feminist Publication on Art and Politics in 1977.
Hammond’s earliest feminist work combined gender politics with Post-Minimalist concerns for material and process, frequently occupying a space between painting and sculpture – a focus that continues to this day.

DÓRA MAURER
Sep 12 - Nov 3, 2019
Dóra Maurer (b.1937, Budapest) is at the forefront of Hungarian neo-avant garde. One of the most experimental artists to emerge from Eastern Europe during the past half a century, her rigorous, conceptual practice is based on mathematical and complex system processes. Encompassing painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and film making, the artist’s diverse career has spanned over 50 years.
This exhibition features works made between 1999 and the present day with a focus on her 'Overlappings' series – sculptural paintings which explore the potential of colour to influence human perception. Elegant and seemingly lightweight, they create the illusion of layering and three-dimensional folds.

White Cube presents ‘Mandalas’, an exhibition of new work by Damien Hirst at Mason's Yard. His first major show in London for seven years, it features large-scale works from the recent concentric paintings. Returning to one of his most well-known motifs – the butterfly – Hirst’s new paintings take their inspiration from the mandala: highly patterned religious images that represent the cosmos or universe in Hindu, Buddhist, Jain and Shinto traditions.

Lindsey Bull, Tamara Dubnyckyj, Rebecca Jagoe, Mindy Lee, Cathy Lomax and Susan Sluglett.
 
Curated by Mindy Lee
 
The changing room is a place to transition, a place to come and go, to pass through. Bodies changing reveal a shedding of a layer, outfit, costume, persona, memory, skin or life.
 
This painting and sculpture exhibition looks at intimate traces of the body through a chasm between public, private, projected and theatrical personas; between the external and internal self. Physical, cast-off garments leave a trace of the body's activity behind, whilst the paintings capture ghostly figures in a state of dress/undress. These forms and gestures hold memories of our ghost bodies and evidence our continual search to reinvent or re-find ourselves/others. Here ghosts remain as a constant reminder of the body’s shifting states.

Oct 3 - Nov 9, 2019
Artist led walkthrough: 2 Oct, 5-6pm, followed by PV.
—-
Nate Lowman’s debut presentation at the gallery will feature a new series of works based on perfunctory crime scene photos of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, in which a gunman attacked civilians attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival, resulting in fifty-nine deaths. By focusing on these images and rendering their details, his new works re-present disquietingly mundane scenes that simultaneously reveal and mask the violent context of his source imagery. They raise questions about the communicability of certain images and insist on their visibility, while probing the tensions between the everyday and the extreme, presence and absence, and, more broadly, violence and representation.
