Roman Signer: Slow Movement
Towed by a rope, a kayak will travel through the 90-metre long gallery as if on water. Joined by two other canoes placed around the centre in bizarre ways and early films featuring the kayak, Signer transforms an ordinary scenario into something absurd. An avid kayaker for many years, Signer has used boats in his practice since the 1980s to explore the experience of landscape and time.
Calling all pogonophiles, this exhibition of over 80 portraits by Mr Elbank is just for you. Here, all manner of facial tufts come under the spotlight from John Hurt's wiry fisherman’s whiskers to Harnaam Kaur’s unexpected beard, which she’s been growing since she was sixteen when she was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries.
Leon Golub: Bite Your Tongue
The late-figurative painter, who was shunned for many years by the American establishment, is celebrated in this survey of his rugged, politically charged work that spans the Vietnam War and 1990s dystopian urban scenes.
Joshua Reynolds: Experiments in Paint
This spring the Wallace Collection will reveal a more radical side to the British eighteenth century portraitist who founded the Royal Academy. Bringing together fascinating archival material, x-rays and twenty paintings, Reynolds’ unconventional technical approach will be unearthed. Enthralling detective antics aside, it’s also the perfect chance to appreciate his magnificent portraits of London’s colourful elite.
