NICOLA TYSON : BEYOND THE TRACE
Sep 28 - Nov 12, 2017
Beyond the Trace, solo exhibition of works on paper by Nicola Tyson. This will be the first solo exhibition in London of her drawings. It will include a range of work: sketchbook pages; ‘daily drawings’, made since 2015, and posted on social media; large graphite drawings; and life-sized ink drawings made especially for this exhibition. Working intuitively and from memory, these gestural pencil drawings are a reimagining of the female body; they are highly animated, androgynous, self-contained and surreal.

Nov 30, 2017 - Feb 18, 2018
Private view Wed Nov 29 6pm - 8.30pm
A major new exhibition that explores how Indian classical music has inspired modern and contemporary artists.
 
Everything we do is music, curated by Shanay Jhaveri, traces a long history: from early Indian miniature painting (Ragamalas) through to drawings, animations and video works from the present day. Including works by pivotal Indian and Pakistani artists such as Nasreen Mohamedi and Lala Rukh, the exhibition will feature a number of works previously unseen in the UK. It will present newly commissioned pieces by Michael Müller and Sarnath Banerjee alongside works by contemporary artists such as Shahzia Sikander and KM Madhusudhanan. The exhibition will also explore the influence of Indian classical music on important American artists such as Lee Mullican and Marian Zazeela, and its wider influence on western popular and counterculture.
