Two Exhibitions from 5th July until 15th September
Elizabeth Murray “Flying Bye”: This is the first UK exhibition of celebrated American painter Elizabeth Murray (1940-2007). It highlights a dramatic decade that saw Murray’s work dominate the art scene of 1980s New York and will focus on her vibrant, monumental, multi-panel and three-dimensional paintings and innovative works on paper from the 1980s and early 1990s.
Wong Ping “Heart Digger”: Wong Ping (bn 1984 Hong Kong) creates digital and sculptural works that reveal very human, often universal fantasies, through absurd narratives. Drawing from his own social encounters, he elaborates his stories into dark humorous tales that touch on political and cultural anxieties. These simple but seductive animations also disguise a deeper critique of technology .
