Considered one of the leading figurative artists today, Rego draws inspiration from many sources including literature and fairy tales to create mysterious and narrative works. </strong></p> <p class="BODY">On display in the lower level gallery, is Rego&rsquo;s large-scale pastel series<em> Dancing Ostriches</em> <em>from Disney&rsquo;s &lsquo;Fantasia&rsquo;</em><em>,</em> originally commissioned for the exhibition <em>Spellbound</em> at the Hayward Gallery, London in 1996 and then acquired by Saatchi Gallery. Marking the centenary of cinema in Britain, artists and film-makers were commissioned to create works portraying the relationship between art and cinema. Both enthralled and terrified by the films of Walt Disney as a child, Rego derived the series from the &lsquo;Dance of the Ostriches&rsquo; in Fantasia, a scene that particularly stood out in her memory. Citing Disney as a major artistic influence, Rego regarded his films as a modern counterpart to traditional fairy tales told to her as a child.</p> <p class="BODY">Drawing both from memory and her assistant Lila as a life model, Rego replaces the animals with robust women in purposely awkward stances. Striving against the odds, the lumbering dancers challenge attitudes towards the female body and Disney&rsquo;s idealized cartoon characters. Rego states, <em>&ldquo;The Ostriches couldn&rsquo;t have been done if I hadn&rsquo;t been the age I am. A younger woman wouldn&rsquo;t know what it was like; longing for things that are not gone, because they&rsquo;re inside one, but that are inaccessible.&rdquo; </em></p> <p class="BODY">Paula Rego consistently challenges herself, embracing new ideas, stories and media. On view in Marlborough&rsquo;s first floor gallery is a new large-scale work, her first tapestry, <em>Eagles Daughter </em>(2016). Based on an 16<sup>th</sup> century folk tale, it tells the story of a beautiful young girl&rsquo;s life, born to a man who was raised by eagles, and betrayed by an ugly, wicked old woman.&nbsp; Produced with textile design at Factum Arte in Madrid, the work was woven by Flanders Tapestries in Belgium. The tapestry is shown alongside a selection of etchings and lithographs including the critically acclaimed series <em>The</em> <em>Pendle Witches </em>(1996) and <em>Peter Pan </em>(1992).</p> <p class="BODY">Rego&rsquo;s expressive works invite the viewer into a world of disconcerting realism and innocence, told through both familiar and imagined stories which are open to interpretation and blur the lines between the grotesque, sinister and beautiful.</p> <p class="BODY">A fully illustrated catalogue will be available with an introduction by Jan Dalley, Arts Editor of the Financial Times and author.</p> <p class="BODY">The exhibition coincides with a solo display devoted to Paula Rego&rsquo;s works from the 1980&rsquo;s at Frieze Masters, 6 &ndash; 9 October 2016. It includes important works from the <em>Vivian Girls</em> series inspired by the Outsider artist Henry Darger, much admired by Rego. This constitutes the fourth in a series of single-artist booths presented by Marlborough Fine Art at the fair, following the presentation of Frank Auerbach in 2015, Francis Bacon in 2014 and Victor Pasmore in 2013.</p> <p class="BODY">Rego (b. 1935, Lisbon) trained at the Slade School of Fine Art (1952-56). In 1990, she was appointed artist-in-residence at the National Gallery, London. Her work has been exhibited in many of the major museums world-wide.&nbsp; In 2004 she was awarded the Gr&atilde; Cruz da Ordem de Sant'Iago da Espada by the President of Portugal and a museum dedicated to Rego's work, the Casa das Hist&oacute;rias Paula Rego, was opened in Cascais, Portugal in 2009. In 2010, Rego was made a Dame of the British Empire. Her work is part of numerous public collections including the Arts Council, London, England; Berardo Collection, Lisbon; National Gallery, London; National Portrait Gallery, London; Tate Gallery, Liverpool; and the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester. She lives and works in London.</p> Fri, 22 Jul 2016 09:51:45 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Marina Višić, Kristina Chan, Julia Parkinson, Elizabeth Byrne, Petter Yxell - Anise Gallery - August 11th - September 10th <p>Embracing its ethos for connecting architecture and art, Anise Gallery finds new ways of exploring this relationship through new practices in fine art. In 2016 we are delighted to present artists from Slade School of Fine Art, Royal College of Art and Goldsmiths College.</p> <p>Marina Vi&scaron;ić studied MFA Fine Art at Slade School of Fine Art. Her practice has stemmed from an interest in materiality and how various textures and images are incorporated into landscapes. In recent years her practice has evolved from threadwork to video, and following her work for the Slade degree show 2016, she has been awarded &nbsp;the Jeanne Szego Prize for imaginative use of colour. Marina&rsquo;s work has been exhibited widely in The Netherlands including a solo show &lsquo;Myriade&rsquo; at Noordbrabants Museum.&nbsp;</p> <div> <p>Kristina Chan studied MA Printmaking at Royal College of Art. Her work looks at subverting our knowledge of space and place through historical and contemporary analysis. The process for the &lsquo;Collisions in Time&rsquo; series begins with an architectural site, where the artist is inspired by its histories, ruins and remains. Kristina is traditionally trained in lithography, etching, screen print and digital media manipulation, and has exhibited at CGP London, Mus&eacute;e de Louvre, &nbsp;and New Ashgate Gallery among others. She has an upcoming solo show at Project 88 in Bombay, India this summer.&nbsp;</p> <p>Julia Parkinson studied MA Sculpture at Royal College of Art. She is interested in the phenomenology and metamorphosis of material and depicts 3D textures and spaces in 2D forms. For her &lsquo;Pool&rsquo; series featured at the RCA degree show, there is a certain performative element to the work, a static animation, as the medium arrives at its destination to reach a state of immobility. In this, there is an ontological enquiry as the work reaches a state of being, a stationary &lsquo;becoming&rsquo;, finding its objecthood. Julia&rsquo;s work has featured in prominent exhibitions in recent years including Bloomberg New Contemporaries at the Institute of Contemporary Arts and Spike Island, Camden Arts Centre and Liverpool Biennale.</p> <p>Elizabeth Byrne studied MFA Fine Art at Goldsmiths College. Her work as part of the Goldsmiths degree show incorporated photography and installation, expressing the motif of decadence and decay as bedfellows. The process of pieces such as &lsquo;Anemone&rsquo;, which is being shown in the Summer Graduate Show, begins with sculptural assemblages which are then filmed and photographed, resulting in large scale photographic collages. Elizabeth&rsquo;s work has been listed for the Salon Art Prize, Anthology Art Prize at Charlie Smith, London, as well as being featured in shows and fairs at The Bargehouse, Vegas Gallery and FOLD Gallery.</p> <p>Petter Yxell studied MFA Fine Art at Goldsmiths College. His interest in modular architecture is evident in his installation work &lsquo;Unhabitat&rsquo;, which incorporates concrete materiality and vernacular design from his home country, Sweden. Petter&rsquo;s practice has been heavily influenced by examining architectural structures in both London and Glasgow, and investigating the ways in which the urban landscape is consumed and at the same time often holds a transcient status. He presents work from the Goldsmiths degree show for Anise Gallery and will showcase a new commission for the Edinburgh Art Festival this summer, having previously shown work at Royal Scottish Academy, Candid Arts Trust and Studio 41.</p> <p>Linking the four artists is a passion for the architectural in the environment, whether this is through magnified textures and movements or stories of &lsquo;place&rsquo; and &lsquo;non-place&rsquo; situated in time. This is expressed through various media, including video art and screenprinting.</p> <p><strong>Sponsored by Sipsmith Independent Distillery</strong></p> </div> Thu, 21 Jul 2016 12:18:11 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Sol Calero - Laura Bartlett Gallery - September 23rd - October 30th Thu, 21 Jul 2016 11:16:13 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Dan Graham, Allora & Calzadilla, John Latham, Marina Abramovic, Wael Shawky, Christian Jankowski - Lisson Gallery - July 15th - August 27th <p style="text-align: justify;">'Performer/Audience/Mirror' (15 July &ndash;

The show will mark a significant transition in the artist's practice, by subverting the Dutch wax Batik fabric for which he is known. He moves away from fabric itself and manipulates the pattern in unfamiliar ways. The show coincides with a major commission that is currently displayed on the frontage of the Royal Academy on Burlington Gardens. A monumental hand painted mural on the inside gallery walls will echo the motif of the hoarding on the outside of the Royal Academy; an important link and ongoing inspiration for the artist.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For this exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery Yinka Shonibare MBE will produce his largest graphic work yet. Figures from Christian and African religious iconography merge into fantastical hybrids that bring to the fore the artist's concern with individual agency and aesthetic creativity. These will accompany exciting new Greco-Roman sculptures that take inspiration from the cast courts from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. These figures, recognisable as David or Venus de Milo, are hand-painted in Dutch wax Batik patterns, and have contemporary globes atop their bodies in place of a head. This new body of work will consider issues of appropriation and cultural interaction.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In September 2016 Yinka Shonibare will present a survey exhibition at Yale Center for British Art, which will focus on Shonibare's interest in the British historical figure Admiral Lord Nelson, whom he uses as an emblem of Britain's imperial history.</p> Mon, 18 Jul 2016 10:30:19 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Bo Wang, Clara Drummond, Benjamin Sullivan, Jamie Coreth, Laura Guoke - National Portrait Gallery - June 24th - September 4th <p style="text-align: justify;">Selected from 2,557 entries by artists from 80 countries around the world, the&nbsp;<em>BP Portrait Award 2016</em>&nbsp;represents the very best in contemporary portrait painting.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">From parents to poseurs, figurative nudes to famous faces and expressive sketches to piercing photo-realism, the variety and vitality in the exhibition continues to make it an unmissable highlight of the annual art calendar.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Now in its thirty-seventh year at the National Portrait Gallery, and twenty-seventh year of sponsorship by BP, the first prize of &pound;30,000 makes the&nbsp;<em>Award&nbsp;</em>the most prestigious international portrait painting competition of its kind and has launched the careers of many renowned artists.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/bpportrait" target="_blank"><img title="#BPPortrait" src="http://www.npg.org.uk/assets/microsites/bp2016/images/BP2016_hashtag.jpg" alt="#BPPortrait" width="125" height="30" /></a></p> <p>This year&rsquo;s judges were:</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Nicholas Cullinan, Director, National Portrait Gallery (Chair)<br />Christopher Baker, Director, Scottish National Portrait Gallery<br />Alan Hollinghurst, Writer<br />Sarah Howgate, Contemporary Curator, National Portrait Gallery<br />Jenny Saville, Artist<br />Des Violaris, Director, UK Arts &amp; Culture, BP</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The&nbsp;<em>Travel Award 2015</em>&nbsp;winner was selected by the Gallery&rsquo;s Senior Curator of 20th Century Collections Paul Moorhouse,&nbsp;<em>BP Portrait Award 2014</em>&nbsp;second prize winner Richard Twose, and Des Violaris.</p> Mon, 18 Jul 2016 10:22:01 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list - National Portrait Gallery - August 4th 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">To celebrate&nbsp;<em>William Eggleston Portraits</em>, for one night only the National Portrait Gallery is collaborating with Pop Boutique to transform the Bookshop into a 70s shop selling authentic vintage clothes, homeware, furniture and accessories.

The Gallery&rsquo;s current exhibition of 100 works surveys Eggleston&rsquo;s full career from the 1960s to the present day and is the most comprehensive display of his portrait photography ever. Eggleston is celebrated for his experimental use of colour and his solo show at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1976 is considered a pivotal moment in the recognition of colour photography as a contemporary art form.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Juergen Teller (b. 1964, Erlangen, Germany) studied at the Bayerische Staatslehranstalt f&uuml;r Photographie in Munich, before moving to London in 1986. Considered one of the most important photographers of his generation, Teller has successfully navigated both the art world and commercial photography since beginning his career in the late 1980s, blurring the boundaries between his commissioned and personal work in his numerous publications and exhibitions. In 2003, Teller was awarded the Citibank Prize for Photography, and, in 2007 was asked to represent the Ukraine&nbsp;as one of five artists in the 52nd Venice Biennale. He has published over thirty artist&rsquo;s books and exhibited internationally, including solo shows at the Photographer&rsquo;s Gallery, London (1998), Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna (2004), Foundation Cartier, Paris (2006), Daelim Contemporary Art Museum, Seoul (2011), the Institute of Contemporary Art, London (2013), Deste Foundation, Athens (2014), Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin (2015), Phillips, London (2015) and Bundeskunsthalle Bonn (2016). He currently holds a Professorship of Photography at the Akademie der Bildende K&uuml;nste N&uuml;rnberg. Juergen teller lives and works in London.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Sean O'Hagan writes about photography for the Guardian and the Observer and is also a general feature writer.

This exhibition of 100 works surveys Eggleston&rsquo;s full career from the 1960s to the present day and is the most comprehensive display of his portrait photography ever.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Eggleston is celebrated for his experimental use of colour and his solo show at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1976 is considered a pivotal moment in the recognition of colour photography as a contemporary art form. Highlights of the exhibition will include monumental prints of two legendary photographs first seen forty years ago: the artist&rsquo;s uncle Adyn Schuyler Senior with his assistant Jasper Staples in Cassidy Bayou, Mississippi, and Devoe Money in Jackson, Mississippi.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Also on display will be a selection of never-before seen vintage black and white prints from the 1960s. Featuring people in diners, petrol stations and markets in and around the artist&rsquo;s home in Memphis, Tennessee, they help illustrate Eggleston&rsquo;s unique view of the world.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Eggleston" target="_blank">#Eggleston</a></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Exhibition organised by the National Portrait Gallery, London with support from the artist and the Eggleston Artistic Trust</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Hotel Partner<br /><a href="http://www.edwardian.com/" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.npg.org.uk/assets/microsites/eggleston/images/300_EDHOTELS.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="138" /></a></p> Mon, 18 Jul 2016 09:46:55 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list - CHARLIE SMITH london - August 5th - August 20th Mon, 18 Jul 2016 09:35:05 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list - Camden Arts Centre - July 24th 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">The Grantchester Pottery display&nbsp;and document work made throughout their Ceramics Fellowship at&nbsp;Camden Arts Centre in an open&nbsp;and staged photoshoot.

This will be her first solo exhibition in the UK.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Huanca stages surreal architectural collages activated by live performers. She uses socially coded artefacts of the body such as cosmetics and found clothing to create paintings and sculptures, which become backdrops for these durational performances. Painted models, presented as canvases, move glacially through the installation; their morphing tableaux vivants leaving behind scars and ghostly remnants. For her exhibition in London, Huanca will be extending her investigations into representations of presence and absence with a sound installation that will amplify the spaces of 176 Prince of Wales Rd, responding to the movement of bodies through the building.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Donna Huanca (b. 1980 Chicago, USA) studied at the St&auml;delschule, Frankfurt as well as the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Maine and has been the recipient of the DAAD Artist Grant and a Fulbright research grant. Recent exhibition venues include the Malm&ouml; Konsthalle, Moma PS1 Printshop, New York and Peres Projects, Berlin.</p> Mon, 18 Jul 2016 08:54:06 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list
