Jeffrey Charles Henry Peacock at All Hallows on the Wall January 20th, 2011 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Posted 1/25/11

  This year’s ‘potlatch’ was a neat and tidy affair.  The giving was orderly.  In the understated chapel of All Hallows on the Wall, City of London Parish, we were invited to select from 24 framed pictures taken down from the metaphysical vertices of the gallery walls, laid out in a grid on temporary trestles and tabulated like fish on the dock.  Each picture was a gift.  Last year’s potlatch – by all accounts – was more fractious.   Then there had been paintings as well as drawings, seemingly of grea...

by
Anna Fox, Zoe Leonard, Sophie Ristelhueber, Donovan Wylie at The Photographers' Gallery February 12th, 2010 - May 2nd, 2010

Untitlede7i6 Robert Kusmirowski: Bunker  
by
Robert Kusmirowski at Barbican Art Gallery September 30th, 2009 - January 10th, 2010
Posted 1/7/10

Having ostensibly hollowed out subterranean passageways beneath the Barbican, Robert Kusmirowski’s creation manipulates the senses for an emotional evocation of time and place.  The Polish artist’s recreation of a World War Two bunker, his first UK solo exhibit, evokes a harrowing wartime narrative. From the onset, it’s clear an affecting experience is being orchestrated, as you face the gloom beyond a rusted metal doorway etched in heavy concrete façade.  A strong sense of exploration into the...

Keinholz_s032 Kienholz: ‘The Hoerengracht’  
by
Ed and Nancy Kienholz at National Gallery November 18th, 2009 - February 21st, 2010
Posted 1/7/10

Conspicuous amongst the classical paintings at the National Gallery, challenging issues permeate its first modern installation, a recreation of Amsterdam’s Red Light District.  Prostitution continues to inspire strong reactions, prompting artistic interpretation over the centuries, evidenced here by paintings from 17th century Dutch artists. Conceived by American artists Ed Kienholz and Nancy Reddin Kienholz in 1983-8, whose controversial depictions of taboo subjects have influenced contemporary... [more]

CHARLIE SMITH london is delighted to present John Stark with his first one person show in London, ‘Meliora Silentio’. The exhibition is also CHARLIE SMITH london’s inaugural show at our new Old Street gallery space. ‘Aut tace aut loquere meliora silentio’, reads the Latin epigram in Salvator Rosa’s self portrait of circa 1645. Translated as ‘Be quiet, unless your speech be better than silence’, the Italian painter appears to deride the noise of the modern world, and in this opening exhibition Stark pr... [more]
