WALTER PRICE: PEARL LINES
May 21 - Aug 29, 2021
Following his studio residency at Camden Art Centre in early 2020, American artist Walter Price returns for his first major institutional exhibition in the UK. During his residency, Price experimented with scale, narrative and material to create new paintings, works on paper, and sculptural works. In this new exhibition, he will present elements of this body of work, alongside a group of new paintings and works on paper made during lockdown in New York.
 
Walter Price (b. 1989, Georgia, USA) lives and works in New York. His practice incorporates familiar forms and recurring motifs including palm trees, bathtubs, sofa’s and automobiles, which become a language of very personal symbols amid shifting horizon lines and bright fields of colour. Price’s painted and drawn compositions often blur the lines between collective history and individual memory, figuration, and abstraction, depicting uncertain urban and domestic landscapes populated by the suggestion of people, objects, images and text.
 
Before going to art school Price served in the US Navy, and his experiences as an African-American man growing up in the south, as well as his time in the military, both inform the restless complexity, expanse and reach of his paintings. In a forthcoming essay on the artist, writer and art historian Darby English writes:
 
“When I look at Walter Price, I recall the instability of the black figure in visual art and of blackness in the public imagination, and I am reminded that constructing an abstract or inclusive or difficult image needn’t mean forsaking one’s own. Price stands firm (and invites us to join him) in a turbulent formalism full of identity that adheres to no single identity politics. This keeps his image strange and buoyant, distinguishing it from so much obvious art.”
 
Price attempts to disrupt and reconcile what he sees as a ‘wrongness’ in painting by questioning its conventions, from the viewing experience to the materials and techniques he might employ within a work. Sometimes including unconventional materials such as metallics, stickers and tape, and a broad textural range of thickly applied paint and brushwork, Price pushes the mediums of painting and drawing, grappling with canonical issues of convention and taste, all held together within a bold and exuberant exploration of colour.

OLGA BALEMA: COMPUTER
May 21 - Aug 29, 2021
Camden Art Centre will present the first solo UK institutional exhibition by New York-based artist Olga Balema (b. 1984 Ukraine), with a major new commission responding to the iconic architecture of Gallery 3. Balema’s work was included in the 2019 Whitney Biennial alongside a critically acclaimed exhibition at Bridget Donahue Gallery, New York and has gained increasing visibility in the US and Europe over the past five years.
 
Balema’s practice is dynamic, inventive and constantly developing and her installations often engage very directly with the spaces that contain them, antagonising their boundaries and disorienting their coordinates. The new floor-based work plays with the idea of a flat sculpture. It unfolds from a series of pixelated images of a domestic carpet, laid out in a grid-like arrangement and printed on billboard material. A large sheet of plastic has been worked on by hand and foot, in the studio, outside and on the computer; as a whole, and in pieces. The work bears an accumulation of marks: hairs traced with a pencil, dirt, and the frottage of New York pavements and visitors to the gallery are invited to walk on top of the work, incorporating their footsteps with existing composition of marks.
 
The work comes out of the artist’s thinking around meaning as a function of lived time and aligns with a definition of art that is primarily concerned with communicating in terms of its integrity as a formal production. Balema’s sculptures are often unwieldy and aesthetically demanding, and challenge conventions of legibility within structures and mechanisms that accompany the making and consuming of exhibitions. Balema engages a set of protocols, or a specific combination of actions and gestures of making, that nevertheless connect the work with the world, society, history, place, time and art-making. Guided by an enthusiasm for the exploration of materials and gesture, and an inventive spirit, each new body of work sets its own rules and goals.

SHIMMERING HORIZONS
Jan 15, 2021 - Jan 14, 2022
A Virtual Group Exhibition by Or Gallery, Vancouver (Canada) and Canada House, London
 
Artists:
Asinnajaq, Meagan Musseau, Marina Roy, Tania Willard, Elizabeth Zvonar
Curated by Laurie White
 
Shimmering Horizons brings together works by five Canadian artists that offer visions of future life-ways on Earth. The exhibition puts the idea of shimmer―a concept described by writer and anthropologist Deborah Bird Rose as the aesthetic experience of ecological complexity and ancestral power―into productive alignment with the image of the horizon, a potent metaphor for the future.
 
In these works, horizons shimmer both literally and figuratively: the glimmer of stars and the aurora borealis make palpable the potency of ancestral and ecological inheritance—the future enfolded by the past. Through a range of media, including basketry, video, painting, and digital collage, the artists in Shimmering Horizons offer alternative visions of the future that prioritize continuity, adaptation, and resilience.

LOOKING UP: HELAINE BLUMENFELD AT CANARY WHARF
May 1 - Sep 30, 2021
Showing sculptures by Helaine Blumenfeld at Canary Wharf gives an unrivalled opportunity to view them in the context of hard interior and exterior architecture as well as carefully designed outdoor spaces amongst mature trees. Her fusion of natural forms, both human and foliate, spiced with abstraction, are seen through a range of diverse works dating from 1974 to 2019.
 
Blumenfeld works in a range of media – marble from many locations in Europe and the Middle East, terracotta, wood and bronze, all of which she pushes to the limits of risk, teetering on the edge of impossibility, particularly in her carving. Through time, she has carved deeper into a range of fine marbles, using both material density and translucency to create lyrical and complex forms in works reflecting life, myth and our irrefutable part of the natural world. The subjective word beauty comes to mind and cannot be ignored.
 
Hignell Gallery in Mayfair will be holding a parallel exhibition of work by Helaine Blumenfeld and will also screen the Sky Arts documentary film on the artist working in her studios, featuring the renowned marble quarries of Pietrasanta, Italy.

SUMMER LIGHTS FESTIVAL
Jun 21 - Aug 21, 2021
A colourful exhibition celebrating natural light across the Canary Wharf estate.
 
Light art has been growing in popularity, with Canary Wharf’s own Winter Light festival becoming a firm favourite in our events programme, bringing together thousands of people to enjoy light at the darkest time of year. So this summer, as many of us return to work and resume normal life again, we have created Summer Lights.
 
Aiming to continue to bring stunning works of art to the Canary Wharf estate, this unique light event will launch around Midsummer to celebrate light in its most natural form.

CAMARA TAYLOR: A RANT! A REEL!
Jul 28 - Sep 19, 2021
a rant, a reel! is the first London solo exhibition by Glasgow-based artist Camara Taylor, curated by Languid Hands.
 
Camara Taylor’s a rant! a reel! stems from an ongoing research project that uses ‘silt’ and the process of ‘desilting’ as both metaphor and methodology to examine Scotland’s intimate entanglement and key roles in the development of the current global order. Negotiating flimsy cultural memories, illegible archives and Black gestures, the exhibition acts as a repository for Taylor’s current Transfixions (after Shola von Reinhold) as they work towards a film currently situated in the gut.

Jul 21 - Aug 28, 2021
Flowers Gallery is pleased to announce Prismatic Minds, an exhibition looking at highly stylized visual languages featuring repeated figures and characters, curated by Jennifer Gilbert (Director of the Jennifer Lauren Gallery) and actor, writer, and co-presenter of art podcast Talk Art Russell Tovey.
 
Bringing together six mainly self-taught international artists, each with intensely personal and imaginative styles, Prismatic Minds presents a new discourse on the act of repetition and the desire to surround oneself with others, real or imagined. Original, raw and energetic, the works on view introduce a carnival of contemporary characters through repeated imagery that has recurred in the artists’ work over many years. The exhibition questions the boundaries of the figure, exploring the deep-rooted personal compulsion to build a cast of characters through ideas of solidarity, family and companionship. Often theatrical or performative, and created without expectations from others, the paintings, drawings and sculptures of Prismatic Minds demonstrate practices of masterful storytelling and image-making.

1920/2020: FREUD AND PANDEMIC
May 19 - Sep 12, 2021
The global COVID-19 pandemic shares many similarities with the Spanish Flu that ravaged the world after the First World War. Here we explore how Freud reacted to that crisis and how modern psychoanalysis has responded in 2020.
 
The Spanish Flu pandemic struck the Freud family with tragic results. Sophie Halberstadt-Freud, Freud’s beloved daughter, died suddenly from the influenza while pregnant with her third child. Freud and his wife Martha were devastated.
 
Although the Spanish Flu and COVID-19 are different strains of diseases, similar measures were taken by governments worldwide and by individuals. Schools, shops and restaurants closed, restrictions were placed on transportation and social distancing was encouraged.
 
In the midst of this turmoil and tragedy Freud wrote Beyond the Pleasure Principle, attempting to answer a question at the very heart of psychoanalysis. This led to his last great speculative breakthrough, a new ‘dual instinct’ theory represented by the life drive and the death drive.
 
A new exhibition at the Freud Museum London explores the ways Freud himself responded to the global and personal tragedy of the pandemic in 1918-20. On display will be rarely-seen letters written by Freud to friends and colleagues in the days after Sophie’s death, exposing personal reflections on death and loss.

YINKA SHONIBARE CBE : AFRICAN SPIRITS OF MODERNISM
Jun 4 - Jul 31, 2021 FINAL WEEK
Drawing on themes of human hybridity and transformation, these new works juxtapose icons of European Classical antiquity with African artefacts from Picasso’s own collection. The exhibition comprises quilts that explode with colour and polymorphous forms; three hand-painted sculptures depicting mythological creatures and a new series of African masks that explores the artist’s own identity as a “post-colonial hybrid”. These new works are accompanied by an historical archive which captures Paris’ burgeoning interest in African art during the 1920s.

This much anticipated show brings together the largest ceramic works produced by the artist to date, alongside towering wooden sculptures, masks and vibrant works on paper. Babirye’s powerful works are a testimony to her fiercely intelligent approach to the transformation of found materials. Her oeuvre examines the legacies of British colonialism in Uganda and traditional clan systems, encompassing progressive ideas regarding alternative forms of kinship, community and LGBTQI activism.

Jul 23 - Aug 27, 2021

This iteration of ‘Multiple’ brings together series of screen prints spanning three years of the Scottish artist’s practice. In recent years, printmaking has become an increasingly important part of Barclay's work, and the artist was Printmaker in Residence at Edinburgh College of Art, Scotland between 2018 and 2019, where she further developed her print practice. This exhibition presents previously unseen works alongside newly made monoprints in advance of Barclay’s major solo exhibition at The MAC, Belfast in 2022. Claire Barclay and Katy Hessel, art historian, broadcaster and curator will be in conversation via Zoom on Saturday 24 July at 2pm. For further details please view the gallery’s website.
