The five artists in this exhibition share interest in the investigation of themes, including: human relationships, personal and collective consciousness, memory, desire, and the dynamics of subjectivity. Their work provokes both emotional and intellectual responses. Feelings and mood become key activators in their drawings, sculptures, and installations.
Richard Avedon People celebrates the work of American photographer Richard Avedon (1923 to 2004). With work from 1949 to 2002, the exhibition offers an in-depth overview of Avedon’s achievements in the art of black and white portraiture photography. In the show, instantly recognisable and influential artists, celebrities, and political activists including Truman Capote, Elizabeth Taylor, Twiggy, Malcolm X, and Bob Dylan are presented alongside portraits of the unknown or long forgotten. Coming soon, opening 6 December 2014
