STEVE MCQUEEN : YEAR 3
Nov 12, 2019 - Jan 31, 2021
Turner Prize-winning artist and Oscar-winning filmmaker Steve McQueen unveils his epic portrait of London’s Year 3 pupils.
Explored through the vehicle of the traditional school class photograph, this vast new art work is one of the most ambitious portraits of children ever undertaken in the UK. It offers us a glimpse of the capital’s future, a hopeful portrait of a generation to come.

Click to enlargeAUBREY BEARDSLEY
Mar 4 - Sep 20, 2020
The largest exhibition of his drawings for 50 years.
Aubrey Beardsley shocked and delighted late-Victorian London with his sinuous black and white drawings. He explored the erotic and the elegant, the humorous and grotesque, winning admirers around the world with his distinctive style.
Spanning seven years, this exhibition will cover Beardsley’s intense and prolific career as a draughtsman and illustrator, cut short by his untimely death from tuberculosis at the age of 25. Beardsley’s charismatic persona played a part in the phenomenon that he and his art generated, so much so that the 1890s were dubbed the ‘Beardsley Period’.
This will be the first exhibition dedicated to Beardsley at Tate since 1923, and the largest display of his original drawings in Europe since the seminal 1966 exhibition at the V&A, which triggered a Beardsley revival.
The over 200 works include his celebrated illustrations for Le Morte d’Arthur, Lysistrata and Oscar Wilde’s Salomé. It will also show artworks that were key inspirations for Beardsley, including a Japanese scroll and watercolours by Edward Burne-Jones and Gustave Moreau.

HYUNDAI COMMISSION : KARA WALKER
Oct 2, 2019 - Nov 8, 2020
Acclaimed artist Kara Walker presents one of the most ambitious Hyundai Commissions to date.
Fons Americanus is a 13-metre tall working fountain inspired by the Victoria Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace, London.
Rather than a celebration of the British Empire, Walker’s fountain explores the interconnected histories of Africa, America and Europe. She uses water as a key theme, referring to the transatlantic slave trade and the ambitions, fates and tragedies of people from these three continents. Fantasy, fact and fiction meet at an epic scale

ANDY WARHOL
Mar 12 - Nov 15, 2020
This major retrospective is the first Warhol exhibition at Tate Modern for almost 20 years. As well as his iconic pop images of Marilyn Monroe, Coca-Cola and Campbell’s soup cans, it includes works never seen before in the UK. Twenty-five works from his Ladies and Gentlemen series – portraits of black and Latinx drag queens and trans women – are shown for the first time in 30 years. Visitors can also play with his floating Silver Clouds and experience the psychedelic multimedia environment of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable.

Click to enlargeOFF STAGE : FRANK CREBER
Aug 8 - 23, 2020
Frank Creber presents a series of large narrative paintings about his experiences of living and working in the community in East London. The main action of the story, in each painting, takes place in a space in between neighbourhoods observed on location from Lower Clapton Road in Hackney to The Royal Docks in Newham.
 
Creber uses found images of people that resonate with his personal experiences. Drawing with ink on paper he develops a series of protagonists that are brought together in compositions. The resulting oil paintings explore the possibility that community can bring vitality to an atomised society.
 
Frank Creber is based at Thames-Side Studios. For more on Frank's work visit www.frankcreber.space

Dread one day at a time brings together into a sealed window space, objects made before and after the UK government’s Coronavirus lockdown. Jo Addison’s work draws on shared cultural memory and evokes an odd, intuitive recognition of familiar things, loosened from their bearings in daily life.

Click to enlargeRCA PHOTOGRAPHY 2020 : 'WITH FISTS, IT KICKS, IT BITES'
Aug 18 - 22, 2020
The Royal College of Art and associated Fitzrovia galleries are delighted to announce the collaborative exhibition With Fists, It Kicks, It Bites. The exhibition by the 2020 graduating students of the RCA MA Photography course, will be divided across the physical gallery spaces of Edel Assanti, TJ Boulting and Webber Gallery, as well as the beautiful and historical location of The Fitzrovia Chapel. Coming together to support the emerging generation of artists, the galleries are thrilled to be able to present to the public the exciting, assertive and experimental work currently made.
 
Following the COVID-19 pandemic, the RCA was one of the first art schools to cancel its physical degree shows and move them to an online presentation. The degree show is not only the opportunity to bring together the culmination of two year’s study and practice, but a chance for students to work together as they transit from students to the outside world. The galleries have recognised how vital the physical degree show is on many levels and have collaborated to stage an exhibition across their spaces for the graduating Photography students. The galleries have previously worked with or represent RCA Photography alumni, in particular TJ Boulting with Dominic Hawgood and Edel Assanti with Noémie Goudal, which is how the conversation on how to help this year’s RCA graduates first emerged and developed.
 
Rut Blees Luxemburg, Tutor in Photography: “The students’ work introduces us to an expanded practice of photography by celebrating the materiality and physicality of the image. The work of this new generation emphasises the critical and experimental engagement with photography as well as the importance of visual pleasure.”
 
Hannah Watson, Director of TJ Boulting and Chair of The Fitzrovia Chapel: “Art schools are the life force of the creative world and produce the next generation of artists. It is imperative that we support them. Whilst in the short term we accelerate towards and embrace all things online, showing the graduates’ work in a physical space feels like a hugely positive achievement for all of us.”

DISPLAY | VALÉRIE BELIN/REFLECTION
Oct 20, 2019 - Aug 31, 2020
Photography Centre, Room 101, The Sir Elton John and David Furnish Gallery.
Inspired by the museum’s collections, Belin has made a new series exploring street photography and storefront window displays. Her fractured, dreamlike landscapes, made using digital manipulation and
superimposition, examine the visual vernacular of urban streets. Belin brings a fresh perspective to historical collections, exploring the line between artifice and reality. This display is the latest contemporary commission to feature in the Project Space of the V&A Photography Centre.

KIMONO : KYOTO TO CATWALK
Jan 29, 2020 - Jun 21, 2021
This exhibition will present the kimono as a dynamic and constantly evolving icon of fashion, revealing the sartorial, aesthetic and social significance of the garment from the 1660s to the present day, both in Japan and the rest of the world. Rare 17th and 18th century kimono will be displayed for the first time in the UK, together with fashions by major designers and iconic film and performance costumes. The kimono’s recent reinvention on the streets of Japan will also be explored through work by an exciting new wave of contemporary designers and stylists. Highlights of the exhibition include a kimono created by Living National Treasure Kunihiko Moriguchi, the dress designed for Björk by Alexander McQueen and worn on the album cover Homogenic, and original Star Wars costumes modelled on kimono by John Mollo and Trisha Biggar.

Click to enlargeABOUT THE HUMAN FIGURE
Jun 25 - Sep 4, 2020
Michael Werner Gallery, London is pleased to announce the reopening of our gallery and the opening of our new group exhibition titled About the Human Figure, which will run in tandem with our summer online exhibition titled The Human Figure. On view at Michael Werner Gallery, London will be a selection of major paintings and sculpture by James Lee Byars, Enrico David, Peter Doig, Florian Krewer, Francis Picabia, A.R. Penck, Sigmar Polke, Raphaela Simon, and Don Van Vliet.
From the beginning of time, humans have desired to see themselves reflected in art. The human figure was rendered on cave walls and carved into stones to be carried as totems or idols. Since antiquity, artists have expanded on these early impulses, and the portrayal of the human figure has a long tradition in the history of art. Displaying works created from 110 years ago until today, About the Human Figure explores the limitless possibilities of the human figure in painting and sculpture.
About the Human Figure opens 25 June at Michael Werner Gallery, London and will remain on view through 4 September. The gallery is open by appointment from 25 June to 3 July, Tuesday to Friday from 11am to 5pm. The gallery will reopen to the public on 7 July, Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 6pm. To ensure the safety of the public and staff, Michael Werner Gallery, London has implemented social distancing guidelines, which can be found on our website, or by contacting us via email at london@michaelwerner.com, or by calling +44 207 495 6855.
