Art From Elsewhere Exhibition Catalogue

Art From Elsewhere Exhibition Catalogue

Description

Catalogue to accompany Art from Elsewhere Exhibition

In this new publication accompanying the latest Hayward Touring exhibition, supported by the Art Fund, curator David Elliott brings together a personal selection of recently acquired international works that have transformed public art collections across the UK. The 70 works featured are drawn from museums and galleries in five regions that were awarded significant grants under the Art Fund International scheme to purchase contemporary works by major international artists over a period of five years. Art from Elsewhere presents an array of works on paper, video, sculpture, painting and photography, reflecting on the realities of global change and the post-colonial experience, examining questions of trade and exchange, urban and international migration, frontiers and failed utopias. Including an in-depth essay by David Elliott as well as commentaries on each of the selected artists, Art from Elsewhere offers an insightful introduction to the richness of international contemporary art being acquired in Britain today. Artists featured in this publication are Ai Weiwei, Shirin Aliabadi, Carl Andre, Stephen Antonakos, Yto Barrada, Yael Bartana, Lothar Baumgarten, Mohamed Bourouissa, Robert Breer, Paulo Bruscky, Nathan Carter, Thomas Demand, Eugenio Dittborn, Omer Fast, Meschac Gaba, Shilpa Gupta, Romuald Hazoumè, Michael Heizer, Peter Hujar, Emily Jacir, Jitish Kallat, Amar Kanwar, Ola Kolehmainen, Barbara Kruger, Ana Mendieta, Aleksandra Mir, Zwelethu Mthethwa, Imran Qureshi, Jozef Robakowski, Shahzia Sikander, Robert Smithson, Nancy Spero, Beat Streuli, Kara Walker, Yang Zhenzhong, YeeSookyung, Akram Zaatari and Horacio Zabala.

Naming - David Lynch

Naming - David Lynch

Description

Exhibition Catalogue

David Lynch – probably best known as a film and television director – originally studied painting at the Boston Museum School and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. He has exhibited widely internationally at many prestigious galleries, and is acclaimed in painting, photography, printmaking and drawing. Lynch’s film and television work – such as Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive and the iconic Twin Peaks – is known for being visually striking, surreal, dream-like, disturbing and beautiful: many of these qualities can be seen in his fine art.

The exhibition traces how Lynch uses ‘naming’ in film, photography, drawings, watercolours, painting and prints from 1968 to the present. The complex relationship between objects and their names has been a point of departure in his work since The Alphabet, the second short film he made as a student in 1968 and shown as part of the exhibition. For Lynch, the act of naming something is never simple: names are not always descriptive of objects in Lynch’s universe. His images and text, working together in unusual ways, create new meanings and a deeper understanding of how language operates.

On Reflection The art of Margaret Harrison

On Reflection The art of Margaret Harrison

Description

Artist Margaret Harrison's work has helped define the relationship of feminism, art and politics in Britain.

Radical Since 1971 - What would happen if you dressed Captain America in a corset and heels? How should we respond to war & exploitation? Why are women paid less and expected to do more? Over her 40+ year career, feminist artist and political activist Margaret Harrison has tried to answer these questions, creating an enormous body of work that includes oil paintings, watercolors, drawings, and large installations. Utilizing her Royal Academy training, cultural icons from Wonder Woman to Lady Gaga, and elements of the British landscape tradition, she insightfully comments on issues of cultural and political importance locally (UK) and internationally. From her first censored solo exhibition in 1971 (one of the first Feminist solo shows in London) to winning the Northern Art Prize in 2013 (Leeds, UK), Harrison has challenged the status quo with thought provoking and often humorous work questioning notions of gender & identity, place, politics, celebrity, domestic violence, and the exploitation of women's labor and sexuality. About the Artist Margaret Harrison's work has helped define the relationship of feminism, art and politics in Britain, and she is frequently invited to speak on these topics in international forums.
