Click to enlargeGEORGE SHAW : OF EXPERIENCE
Jun 21 - Jul 18, 2021
Anthony Wilkinson is pleased to announce ‘Of Experience’ by George Shaw – an exhibition of fourteen new paintings that re-visit the same sights of fourteen paintings made for exhibition ‘Of Innocence’ in 1999.
 
‘I knew then that there was a part two coming; the ‘Of Experience’ bit, an obvious book ending and a tidy circle circled as Blake sings of innocence falling into experience at the hands of the state, of religion, of industry, of economics, of the abuses of power and also the same old human fears and anxieties as time slips by. How would the same places, the same viewpoint look years later? Not so original, not so special. The stuff of the very Common Era. But it had an old fashioned romance about it too. Charles Ryder come George Bowling come Jack Carter to the soundtrack of ‘Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads’ and Dusty’s ‘Goin Back’. Of course none of those stories have what we might call a happy ending. And it’s less of the magnum opus my teenage self would have expected of me in my middle years. No, it’s the boring blah blah blahs of the middle aged twat in the pub going on about the same things as usual ridding the place of customers. Twenty years later sounded like a good a time as any to hang up fourteen more paintings, the same places revisited. I could even put up a banner outside the gallery like you’d do for an anniversary party in the pub. Or a wake. So was I revisiting the old place or revisiting the exhibition? I can’t tell. But it didn’t even happen twenty years later anyway. It’s now 2021 and I’m still painting the bloody things. Most of the delays couldn’t have been expected. And as usual time doesn’t pass how I thought it would pass, in a line from one thing to the next, but circling around itself over and over. The same old path, in a different direction, in different weather even, can offer up new treasures or turds to tread in.’
- George Shaw

Click to enlargeLUCY MCKENZIE : PLEASURE’S INACCURACIES (SUDBURY TOWN STATION)
through Nov 2021
Art on the Underground present a large-scale public commission of permanent and temporary artworks by Scottish-born, Belgium-based artist Lucy McKenzie, titled Pleasure’s Inaccuracies.
 
McKenzie is fascinated by the decoration of public spaces such as train stations, and her work frequently combines source material from the realms of historical design, advertising and architecture. For what is her most ambitious public commission to date, she chose Sudbury Town Tube station, a historic, listed building designed by Charles Holden in 1931, for its location and architecture. Situated outside of central London, with a cavernous main hall, original features and waiting rooms on each platform, the station is evocative of another era.
 
By respecting Sudbury Town’s original design, McKenzie’s commission reflects the present through the aesthetics of the past. The commission comprises a number of elements: two permanent hand-painted ceiling murals featuring maps of the local area; a highly detailed architectural model of the station which will remain on permanent display; two large billboards installed on each platform; and a series of posters which will be on display until November 2021.

HEATHER PHILLIPSON : VOLTA
2020-2021
Audio-collage
8 minutes 32 seconds
 
Acknowledging the seismic global changes of the past few months, Heather Phillipson has been commissioned by Art on the Underground to produce a new online work to accompany her Fourth Plinth commission, THE END. A counterpoint in tone to THE END, Phillipson’s new audio-collage, VOLTA, reckons with upheaval, renewal and possibility. Written and composed by Phillipson, it combines her distinctive layering of voice, sound effects and music samples to destabilise and relocate.
 
Phillipson’s singular, visceral audio works connect an abundance of noises, words and images, generating multiple possible directions. Her frenzied musings bend speech to tempo and logic to rhythm, disrupting perceptions and assumptions.

JEAN DUBUFFET : BRUTAL BEUTY
May 17 - Aug 22, 2021
GALLERIES TEMPORARILY CLOSED - see website for online programming and updates.
 
An exhibition celebrating Jean Dubuffet, one of the most powerful and provocative voices in the post-war avant-garde.
Spanning more than four decades in the studio, this exhibition brings together powerful work by the French artist Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985). This show is the first in the UK in more than 50 years, highlighting Dubuffet’s radicalism as he experimented with materials and aimed to create what he described as:
‘an art that is directly plugged into our current life, that immediately emanates from our real life and our real moods.’
Dubuffet was one of the first to champion ‘Art Brut’ – a phrase he coined, which literally translates as ‘raw art’. The exhibition explores his lifelong pursuit of authentic expression, featuring rarely exhibited pieces from international museums and private collections.

HOW WE LIVE NOW: REIMAGINING SPACES WITH MATRIX FEMINIST DESIGN CO-OP
May 17 - Dec 23, 2021
An installation exploring two important social questions: who are our buildings and shared spaces for and how do they affect us?
The jumping-off point for considering these questions is a previously unseen archive of work by the radical 1980s feminist architecture cooperative Matrix, who addressed the ways in which the design of the built environment excludes particular groups, particularly in relation to gender, race and disability.
The hybrid programme will consist of a physical installation on Level G at the Barbican featuring rare films, drawings, photos and architectural models from the Matrix archive; as well as of series of online talks, workshops, film screenings and walking tours. The accompanying exhibition catalogue has been reimagined as an experimental publication that combines archival reproductions of Matrix materials with contemporary responses to the key themes of the project.

CLAUDIA ANDUJAR : THE YANOMAMI STRUGGLE
Jun 17 - Aug 29, 2021
An exhibition devoted to the life and work of Claudia Andujar and her collaboration with the Yanomami, one of Brazil’s largest indigenous peoples, who she has spent her life documenting and defending.
 
Over 200 photographs, an audio-visual installation and a series of drawings by the Yanomami are brought together for the exhibition. They reflect the dual nature of Andujar’s five-decade relationship with them, highlighting her commitment to both art and activism. Photos from her first six years living with the Yanomami, showing how she grappled with visually interpreting a complex culture, will feature alongside imagery produced during periods of direct activism, as she used her camera and archive as a tool for political change.
 
At a time when the Yanomami’s territory is threatened and their way of life at risk, due to ongoing illegal mining and the spread of Covid-19, this survey takes on enhanced significance. The exhibition not only presents Andujar’s art but also amplifies the voices and perpetual struggles the Yanomami are facing.

Click to enlargeJONNI CHEATWOOD: LIVE! FROM THERAPY
May 29 - Jul 3, 2021
We have undergone a revolutionary period unprecedented in modern times. Political, social, economic upheaval, and even climate change. The role of the artist in such a period is to react, reflect, and record their experience and materialize this process for the reception of the greater public in both the present and the future.
 
With regard to this new body of work by gallery artist Jonni Cheatwood, both the current Covid pandemic as well as the Black Lives Matter movement have contributed to forming the basis of his new body of work. “My motivation here is to explore expressions in the social struggle, the nature of reality,” Cheatwood says from his home in Los Angeles. “It’s basically self-retrospective.”
 
The works are typical of Cheatwood’s growing oeuvre: self-reflexive, tongue-in-cheek, humorous, and light-hearted… but what we are also seeing for the first time is a poignant, relatable, and altogether human side of artist’s personal struggle as mixed-race black and Latino man in modern-day America: “[I wanted to discuss] being a BIPOC, being in an interracial marriage, my own anxieties and struggles.” The artist discusses that the works aren’t all necessary reactionary or revolutionary, but internalized, where meaning exists ‘beneath’ these figures.
