The Art of Steven Campbell at Marlborough Fine Art
This retrospective exhibition of the works of Steven Campbell (1953-2007) will feature works created by the Scottish aritst between 1983 and 2007. Campbell, often considered a major pioneer in the renaissance of Scottish art in the 1980s, has not had a solo show in London since 2009. His works present a highly distinctive and original aesthetic, in an intelligent, powerful and sometimes autobiographical style of painting.
Opening Reception: Tuesday, 12 September, 4-8 PM
Naming Rights at Thomas Dane Gallery
The Thomas Dane Gallery puts a unique spin on things with their exhibition timeline. 'For the first three weeks of the exhibition, each artist's works will be shown as a solo presentation in the main exhibition space for a little more than one day each in turn'. Later, on the 12th of September, all the works will return together. The open house will include a musical performance set to mimic the exhibition structure.
Open House: Wednesday, 13 September, 6-8:30 PM
Some Context, Hannah Black at Chisenhale Gallery
Chisenhale Gallery describes the exhibition as: Some Context is structured around 20,000 copies of The Situation, a book made up of transcribed, edited and censored conversations between the artist and friends about ‘the situation’. This theme is interpreted differently in each conversation. The books provide the stuffing – in shredded form – for the ‘transitional objects’ also displayed in the space, and will be shredded at the end of the exhibition.
Opening: Thursday, 14 September, 6:30-8:30 PM
