SCHOOL PRINTS
Jan 12 - Jun 24, 2018 FINAL WEEK
During the 1940s, artists including Henri Matisse, Henry Moore and Pablo Picasso were commissioned to create prints as part of a project to bring contemporary art to school children.
 
Inspired by this project, we have invited Martin Creed, Jeremy Deller, Anthea Hamilton, Helen Marten, Haroon Mirza and Rose Wylie to create limited edition prints for schools. The new prints will be displayed alongside the original 1940s works.

LEE MILLER : AND SURREALISM IN BRITAIN
Jun 22 - Oct 7, 2018
Lee Miller (1907 – 1977) first entered the world of photography in New York as a model in Vogue in the 1920s. In 1929 she moved to Paris and worked with Man Ray, establishing her own studio and becoming part of the Surrealist milieu. A rich strand of Surrealist practice emerged in Britain in the 1930s and developed in the immediate pre-war period, during which Miller moved to London.
 
This exhibition will explore the creative networks between artists in the UK in the 1930s and 40s through Miller’s lens. Miller’s photographs of and collaborations with Surrealists working in the UK, including Eileen Agar, Leonora Carrington, Max Ernst and René Magritte will be presented alongside their own paintings and sculptures.
 
It will also focus on Miller’s own practice and how she turned her Surrealist eye across disciplines to the worlds of fashion and journalism, revealing and revelling in the strange and extraordinary.

VIVIANE SASSEN: HOT MIRROR
Jun 22 - Oct 7, 2018
Echoing the career of Lee Miller, internationally renowned artist Viviane Sassen (b. 1972) straddles the fashion and fine art worlds. Central to this exhibition is the inspiration of Surrealism, a movement Sassen recognises as one of her earliest artistic influences, seen in the uncanny shadows, fragmented bodies and dreamlike landscapes of her work.
 
Hot Mirror will bring together photographs from several collections made over the last ten years, including the celebrated Flamboya and Parasomnia series (2013), shown alongside new photographs and collages, to create image-poems that draw on the Surrealist strategies of collage to offer new and unexpected juxtapositions.
 
As well as an overview of Sassen’s artistic practice, the exhibition will present a new version of her immersive film installation, Totem.

Featuring new work in a mix of animation, drawing, film, painting and photography, the exhibition is a reflection on the notion of turbulence, from simple instability to chaos, from a meteorological phenomenon to bigger geopolitical pictures, from a simple knot in the hair to an ascending spiral. Knots represent links and bonds, as well as resistance and binding.

Click to enlargeJOHN KIPPIN : ROMANITAS
May 19 - Jun 24, 2018 FINAL WEEK
“...we're going to build an entirely new political movement...an economic nationalist movement...[with] a trillion-dollar infrastructure plan...We're just going to throw it up against the wall and see if it sticks. It will be as
exciting as the 1930s..." Steve Bannon, Chief Strategist to president-elect Trump, November 2016
 
In Romanitas, Kippin reflects upon both the state of contemporary politics, in relation to that what WH Auden called the “low, dishonest decade” of the 1930s. In Romanitas Kippin dwells on the image of the future built by a far-right nationalist regime that still exists, to picture the daily life lived amongst it. The work can be read as a kind of portrait of Europe in our time. Kippin’s starting point in creating the work was Winston Churchill’s famous phrase: “We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us”.

JOHN KIPPIN : BASED ON A TRUE STORY
Jun 30 - Sep 23, 2018
Based on a True Story surveys forty years of making art in public by John Kippin, a central figure in the emergence of photography as an independent art form in the UK from the 1970s and 1980s through to the present day. The exhibition, and the 344pp publication that accompany it, bringing together contributions from nine leading scholars and curators in the field, including the Director of The Photographers‘ Gallery, Brett Rogers. Each of the nine contributors has selected works from Kippin’s forty-year archive to provide
new insights into his way of seeing the world through a lens. Kippin’s photographic artwork has contributed to debates about the nature of post-industrial landscapes, national and regional identity, forgotten spaces, and the power of the state and commerce to reshape the world. Since the 1980s, Kippin has created billboards for public spaces that intervene in the social realm directly – countering the messages of advertising with counter-cultural propositions, and questions.
