Raqib Shaw is a London-based artist who is known for his opulent paintings of imagined paradises.

The exhibition was designed through direct interaction with the artist in cooperation with the Manchester Art Gallery. The solo show runs until September 15, 2013.

Intersecting at familiar angles that recall the pages of a book left open, the walls of the upstairs gallery of the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts act as meticulous displays for the intermedia exhibition Painting Between the Lines. Reading these spaces the way we would read a book—from top to bottom, left to right—viewers encounter, first, the names of authors and the foundational texts that they penned, including Marcel Proust and Swann’s Way, Milan Kundera and The Unbearable Lightness of B...

Raqib Shaw at White Cube   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Raqib Shaw at White Cube, Mason's Yard September 28th, 2011 - November 12th, 2011
Posted 10/3/11
Titled Paradise Lost, Raqib Shaw’s exhibition of new sculptures and paintings of preternatural landscapes ostensibly has little to do with the Fall of Man. Shaw’s works firmly inhabit the realms of animal-populated fantasy; in the upstairs gallery, two polychrome dioramas face one another, each depicting an oversize swan perching on top of a circular well of gleaming oil strewn with gaudy lotuses and lilies. Each swan is tugging a grisly ribbon of flesh from the chest of a lolling figure caught bet... [more]

Not the catchiest title perhaps, but Kupferstichkabinett is certainly a memorable show.  Referring to the collections of the German aristocracy which in turn lead to the more accessible print and drawing rooms in museums, this show draws on the past to prove that drawing is very much alive and kicking in contemporary art. Set up like a museum, with works densely hung on dark green walls, the show turns the White Cube into a museum of modern drawing, exploring its pivotal role in the pra... [more]

Raqib Shaw at White Cube, Hoxton Square May 20th, 2009 - July 4th, 2009
Posted 6/14/09
      I entered the Hoxton Square, White Cube in quite a hurry last week to be completely stopped in my tracks and absorbed by Raquib Shaw’s exhibition, Absence of God. The surface of every painting is encrusted with glittering industrial paints, rhinestones, and sequins forming intricate narrative scenes of struggle, war, chaos, and battle. The works are a visual overload; it exclaims excess with its ornamental ostentation. Every element is outlined in gold ridges with swirling reflective pain... [more]
