Behind closed doors is a group exhibition that brings together some of London’s most talented visual artists. All artists are based at the Blackhorse Lane Studios in Walthamstow, E17. This is a rare opportunity to see an exhibition that brings together all the studio artists in one show. Neil Irons, who developed the title for the exhibition, curates the show by selecting some of the best and most interesting work that each artist has created over the last 18 months. Neil explains that the idea behind the exhibition is to explore our own sense of privacy by revealing what the studio artist get up to behind closed doors, in this case the studio doors. Although the artist might share a common space they tend to work independently from each other only sharing their thoughts and ideas when the work is complete. Irons states that, "It wasn’t my intention to fit artworks into a theme more a desire to see what if any similarities of intention were to be found in the artists working at Blackhorse Lane studios and where our differing approaches might lead. As I went around visiting the artists in their studios looking for works to select for this show I was carrying notions of privacy, intimacy and exclusion. The artworks are quite separate, different works each reflecting their originators concerns and practice".

This autumn, the acclaimed African-American artist, Kara Walker (b. 1969) brings to London her room-size tableaux of black cut-paper silhouettes and intricate shadow works which critically explore America's underlying racial and gender tensions. They address the highly-charged themes of power, repression, violence, history and sexuality. For her much-anticipated first major solo show in the UK, Walker will fill Camden Arts Centre’s galleries with the process of her art – from large scale graphite drawings and video to new cut paper pieces which will be produced on-site. Kara Walker runs at Camden Arts Centre from 11 October 2013 until 5 January 2014 and admission is free. Walker’s exhibition at Camden Arts Centre will bring together two important bodies of recent work. Her "Niggerati" series of large graphite drawings, conceived as book covers for unwritten essays and works of fiction, investigate pivotal transitions in black American history and the missing narratives of the black migration. Shown alongside the video installation of her challenging shadow play "Fall Frum Grace- Miss Pipi’s Blue Tale" and other new works, including her ‘wall samplers’, wall mounted paper cut outs with mini narratives featuring ‘Civil War Revisionists and Savages’, the exhibition is an exciting opportunity for a British audience to engage with Walker’s thought-provoking works.

Marlborough Fine Art London is pleased to present an exhibition of significant works by Avigdor Arikha (1929 – 2010) from his estate. The exhibition covers the last 45 years of Arikha’s life. He lived as an artist, writer, lecturer and curator. It will explore Arikha’s diverse use of mediums, ranging from pencil, graphite and ink brush (notably Sumi ink), drawings, etchings and aquatint prints, to oils, watercolours and colour pastels. Arikha’s estate is notable in its diversity of subject matter, in which no one genre is privileged over another. Instead, it is the execution of the works that holds utmost importance. The transience of passing instances can be perceived in Arikha’s work, in which the unnoticed and unchecked becomes a lasting and permanent subject, revealing the strangeness of familiar objects, angles and bodies, the fragility of what we observe, and at the same time, its continuance.

Through a wide range of media from painting, sculpture and video installation, He Xiangyu playfully explores social criticism in his practice, foregrounding a refreshing humor and process-based approach. The artist’s imaginative and bold experimentation allows him to reveal structural vulnerability in today’s cultural development. In Cola Project (2012), He amounts an apocalyptic landscape of boiled residue from 127 tons of Coca Cola, in addition to other alchemic artifacts using the product. Tracing a clichéd analogy of contemporary heritage, He displays an evocative scale of grandeur while maintaining his personal attachment that precedes the narrative. For his first presentation in Japan, He showcases a selection of works made since 2011, including those exhibited for the first time. Wisdom Tower (2013) brings together a stack of the artist’s wisdom teeth and miniature golden Chinese pagodas – a series He intends to continue with teeth purchased from third persons.

Curiosity: An Art Practice as a Way of Looking
Opening Oct 04, 2013 at 06:00 pm
Start date Oct 05, 2013
End date Oct 20, 2013

Julie Caves´ first major solo exhibition presents work from the past two years, celebrating beauty and its many juxtapositions: work and play, nature and synthesis, life and death. Caves has sensitively curated a largely site-specific show comprising of Colourist painting, sculpture and installation. What are you looking at? The artist peers at you on a huge scale, an intriguing look, wondering who you might be, and why you’re here at all. This close cropped self-portrait mirrors how you might feel about this show, huge eyes full of Curiosity. This show is all about that fascinating conundrum that will endlessly be debated in pubs and cafes all around the world: what is art? Art, to Julie Caves, is all around us. There´s a fine line between a work of art and the art of nature, and she is constantly walking the tightrope between the two. This is most notably seen in her large window paintings, where she has created a series of works of views through windows, either panes in view so the window is quite apparent, and in other compositions no pane is shown so the work resembles and references traditional landscape painting. Reminiscent of Gary Hume’s enamel Door Paintings from the mid-90s, instead of confronting us with a barrier to a world beyond, Caves’ windows invite us to explore that same world, and realise it really is quite beautiful. The exhibition is located a 5-minutes walk from the Frieze Art Fair.

End date Oct 26, 2013

Spanning our Kitchener and Lorne St galleries this exhibition includes both new and historical works. Dick Frizzell has often slipped through the nets of traditional critical and curatorial definition and the success of his artistic career is, in part, due to the number of dramatic diversions he has made between different art styles and genres. Frizzell has emerged as somewhat of an icon in New Zealand´s visual culture and fittingly he was commissioned to create some of the official 2011 Rugby World Cup artworks. His series of images capture New Zealand´s unique culture and rugby´s place within it. Although primarily a painter, Frizzell also produces an extensive range of works on paper including lithographs and screen prints.

Polish artist Monika Sosnowska is known for her ambitious architectural and sculptural installations, which simultaneously embrace and resist the spaces they occupy. Sosnowska´s exhibition will obliquely reference her hometown of Warsaw and the economic shift that has occurred since the collapse of communism in 1989 to the present day. Characteristically, the artist´s sculptures recall familiar objects transformed in some way. Such as, dysfunctional stairways that join one floor to the other yet serve no purpose, or large-scale metal cubes and girder structures twisted and wedged into existing gallery spaces. Her exhibition will present a series of new painted steel sculptures, redolent of broken market vendor stands, referencing actual forms salvaged from Jarmark Europa Stadium, originally the site of a large market that sold everything from imitation Nike training shoes to pirated CDs and DVDs. The market opened with the onset of capitalism and ended last year when the stadium was destroyed to make way for a new national stadium that was built in time to host Euro 2012.

End date Nov 09, 2013

For Jay Stuckey's second exhibition, the artist delves deeper into dreams and archetypical imagery. The paintings utilize an aoristic approach -- an action without denoting whether completed, begun, or repeated -- composing a perpetual grand narrative harkening back to allegorical and historical painting. Launching from Stuckey's previous works, the imagery in these new paintings gets pushed back, capturing the outlines and textures of faded fragments of memory, akin to the quality of dreams. They also ask more from the viewer, the images slowly boil up to the surface over a course of time, rather than immediately. Layers of oil paint, oil stick, crayon, and torn paper create a wall-like surface with scrawling figures of various sizes, veering away from the traditional pictorial plane. By using dreams as subject matter, Stuckey consequently taps into the collective unconscious where the union of opposites manifest – male and female, love and war, darkness and light. In the large scale painting Guardians of the Secret, a smiling couple nestled inside a bus unaware, or hiding from, the dangerous and violent world outside the vehicle. These polarities are a reflection of our collective psychological condition – layered with complexities, sometimes perverted, vulnerable, and humorous.

We are delighted to present the first solo exhibition at Klompching Gallery, featuring the highly popular photographic artworks of Cara Barer. The artist photographs outdated, abandoned and obsolete books, but only after transforming them into sculptural objects of beauty. Coiled and crumpled, they segue into a considered commentary on the changing role of libraries, society's relationship with how it accesses and values knowledge and, in a technology advance world, her work questions the future of the book itself. The photographs are presented as large-scale pigment prints, rich in color and highly detailed, engendering both curiosity and delight. Her work can be firmly placed within the interdisciplinary—new and growing—genre of 'altered books', which started in the 1960's with A Monument: A Treated Victorian Novel by the British artist Tom Phillips.

Ansichten – Einsichten – Aussichten
Opening Sep 22, 2013 at 11:30 am
Start date Sep 24, 2013
End date Dec 22, 2013

Durch eine Vielzahl an Einzel- und Gruppenausstellungen in Nordrhein-Westfalen, aber auch im Ausland wie England oder der Türkei, ist Uwe Thiergarten einem breiten Publikum bekannt. Für seine Präsentation „Ansichten – Einsichten – Aussichten“ hat er eine Auswahl verschiedener Werke zusammengestellt, die sich unterschiedlicher Techniken bedienen. Thiergartens Fotos zeigen zum Beispiel Strandhütten oder Jäger vor fast monochromweißen Hintergründen, während seine sogenannten „Materialbilder“ deutlich bewegter erscheinen. Der Künstler arbeitet dabei häufig mit Naturstoffen oder Alltagsdingen wie Tontöpfen, Gipsformen oder Holzstücken. Dadurch, dass er sie in Kunstwerke integriert, werden sie aus ihren gewohnten Sinnzusammenhängen herausgelöst und erhalten eine neue Bedeutung. Am Beispiel „Stroh“ beschreibt Uwe Thiergarten die Wirkung seiner Bilder folgendermaßen: „Das Stroh bekommt in meinen mit Gaze überzogenen und bemalten Strohbildern eine neue, wichtigere Funktion. Es füllt als dichtes Geflecht die Bildfläche. Es entsteht eine Strukturdichte mit ganz individueller dreidimensionaler Wirkung. Die Transparenz ist bewusst eingesetzt, um den Blick in die Tiefe zu lenken. Je näher man dem Bild kommt, desto mehr schwindet das Malerische und das reale Objekt Stroh tritt in den Vordergrund.“
