Harminder Judge, Artist’s Talk with Susanna Davies-Crook

1 Jun 2024 3-4pm

Matt’s Gallery
London SW11 7AN


Join us for an insightful conversation between artist Harminder Judge and writer/curator Susanna Davies-Crook as they delve into Judge’s two-part exhibition, A Ghost Dance. Their conversation will cover a spectrum of topics including belief, ritual, consciousness, material process, matter, and abstraction.

This event is part of London Gallery Weekend and will take place at Matt’s Gallery.

Free, booking required via the London Gallery Weekend website.

Harminder Judge is preoccupied with physical and spiritual transformation – a body becoming ash, material becoming immaterial, the physical becoming metaphysical. It revisits early elements of his practice, extends recent developments in his work, and opens up new areas of exploration. His work sets into motion dialogues between Western Modernism, Indian Neo Tantric painting, American Transcendental painting and familial funeral traditions drawn from rural Punjab.

A Ghost Dance is a show that references funeral rites, processions and the presence of ghosts and spirits. It draws on persistent themes in Judge’s work: life, death, ritual and rebirth, creating parallels between the deconstructed body and the cosmos.

The exhibition is open simultaneously at Matt’s Gallery and The Sunday Painter 24 May – 7 July 2024, Wednesday-Sunday, 12–6pm.

A Ghost Dance at Matt’s Gallery is supported by the Henry Moore Foundation.
