Click to enlargePAUL ANTHONY HARFORD : REAL LIFE
Jan 11 - Feb 8, 2020
An exhibition of drawings by Paul Anthony Harford (1943-2016). The display will focus on the strands of social realism and wry observation that run through Harford's work – as reflected by his fascination for the incidental, the everyday and the offbeat. Dating primarily from the mid-2000s, the drawings chronicle the characters and environments of the seaside towns where the artist spent much of his life, oscillating between humour and subdued melancholy.

Click to enlargeALBERT OEHLEN
Oct 2, 2019 - Feb 2, 2020
Albert Oehlen (b. 1954, Krefeld, Germany) is one of the most innovative and significant artists working today. He has been a key figure in contemporary art since the 1980s and the diversity of his painting is a testament to the intrinsic freedom that remains at the heart of the medium. Through expressionist brushwork, surrealist gestures and deliberate amateurism, he engages with the history of painting, pushing its essential components to bold new extremes.

PATRICK STAFF : ON VENUS
Nov 8, 2019 - Feb 9, 2020
On Venus is a site-specific installation exploring structural violence, registers of harm and the corrosive effects of acid, blood and hormones through architectural intervention, video and print.

Oct 31, 2019 - Feb 23, 2020
A major exhibition exploring the non-stop nature of modern lives. A host of international contemporary artists and designers will hold a mirror up to a world in which we are sleeping less, complex systems are exerting control, and the pull of the screen is disrupting our instincts to daydream and pay attention to the world around us, and each other. The exhibition is inspired by the book of the same title by art critic and essayist Jonathan Crary (Verso, 2013).
 
Contributors include Marcus Coates, Mat Collishaw, Harun Farocki, Pierre Huyghe, Rut Blees Luxemburg, Kelly Richardson, Pilvi Takala, Addie Wagenknecht, and ten artists and designers from Somerset House Studios, including Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard.

Dec 4, 2019 - Jan 30, 2020
A diverse group exhibition of artworks which draw upon themes of science-fiction, utopia, ritual and the fragility of human hope and existence. 'The Blazing World' is the third in a trilogy of group exhibitions at the gallery where a work of literature forms a conceptual framework for an exhibition and is accompanied by a new edition and reprinting of a story. The last group show in this series, 'The Blazing World', takes its title from a forward-thinking seventeenth century fictional text of the same name, written by Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle. A part of the original text will be reprinted in S|2’s accompanying exhibition catalogue. The artists featured in the exhibition are Stano Filko, Peter Hujar, Marguerite Humeau, Charlotte Johannesson, Clementine Keith-Roach, Arik Levy, Charlotte Prodger, Paul Thek, Tishan Hsu, Nanda Vigo and Anna Zemánková.

Dec 8, 2019 - Mar 28, 2020
Commissioned solo exhibition exploring hindsight, nostalgia and storytelling through ceramics and textiles. This is the first exhibition to launch SPACE’s new gallery in Ilford.
Lindsey Mendick (b. 1987 lives and works in London) creates installations centred on her skilled work in ceramics and includes banner painting, sewing, metalwork, furniture making and sound. Her autobiographical works are often confessional, referencing the horrors and emotions of adolescence while narrating her experience as a female artist. Drawing from classical painting, mythical women and pop culture iconography, her gothic-like work tells a defiant story that is at once both vulnerable and resilient.

The Tate Britain Winter Commission.
Tate Britain presents its annual Winter Commission to transform and illuminate the gallery's façade. In anticipation of the winter solstice, Anne Hardy has taken inspiration from the rhythms of the earth and the tides of the River Thames. From 30 November 2019 to 26 January 2020, the building's grand entrance is turned into a marooned temple, appearing with tattered banners and tangled lights, while sculptural objects cascade down the steps from the shuttered central door, surrounded by an atmospheric soundscape of rain, thunder, birds and insects.

Doggerland is the name given to the ancient landmass, now submerged, that once connected Britain to Northern Europe. What if a new land mass rises up and we become physically part of the mainland again?

Private view Fri Feb 21 6pm - 9pm
“We paint from memory but we also paint to remember or else we paint to reinvent. Within these boundaries and languages truth can be alternately distorted or clarified.”These five artists use paint as a means to navigate the complexities of 21st century society and reflect on the human condition. From the diasporic experience of straddling two cultures, to neurodivergent ways of seeing the world this group of artists cross; gender, sexual and social norms disrupting the gaze, frames of reference and realities. Working across styles and scales to explore the mundane, the performative, and the memorial through the lens of past histories and current socio-political conditions. Images are pieced together, contingent, and evolving. Paint is gestural, restrained, promiscuous, bodily and duplicitous. These five figurative painters, all deal with fake realities and unapproachable pasts to perform notions of presence and reality in the realm of the imaginary.
