23.07.021 Thomas Dane Gallery Naples will participate in ITALICS
Thomas Dane Gallery Naples is pleased to announce its participation in the first in-person project of the ITALICS consortium.
ITALICS is the first consortium in Italy to unite more than 60 of the country’s most influential galleries. The first in-person project will be ‘Panorama’, an island-wide exhibition on Procida (off the coast of Naples), curated by Vincenzo de Bellis, Curator and Associate Director of Programs, Visual Arts at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.
It is the first in a series of exhibitions, each with the title ‘Panorama’, to tell the story of some of the most fascinating places in Italy, in an IRL continuation of the digital journey which began in October 2020 on italics.art.
Exhibition dates: 2 - 5 September 2021
22.07.21 - Work by Cecily Brown to be auctioned for ClientEarth
A work by Cecily Brown will be placed for auction in Christie’s 20th / 21st Century marquee sales later this year as part of ‘Artists for ClientEarth’, a landmark new collaborate initiative designed to propel the art world in the fight against climate change.
Gallery Climate Coalition has joined forces with member and patron Christie's to raise money, awareness and support for the essential environmental work of ClientEarth.
Cecily Brown’s ‘There’ll be bluebirds’ (2019) will be the first work offered in this series, raising funds directly in support of ClientEarth.
21.07.21 - Michael Landy works now on show with Contemporary Art Society
A selection of works by Michael Landy is currently on show in Mayfair.
Watercolours from the series ‘Family Ruins’ are on sale as part of the temporary exhibition, ‘The Contemporary Art Society at 16 Mount Street’.
A percentage of all sales will be added to funds for art purchase for the Contemporary Art Society’s Museum Members.
12.07.21 - New work by Hurvin Anderson to go on show
British Art Show 9 is now open in Aberdeen. Works by Hurvin Anderson – including a new painting, ‘Dixie Peach’ - will go on show when the exhibition moves to Wolverhampton on 22 January 2022.
The BAS9 exhibition is structured around three main themes: healing, care and reparative history; tactics for togetherness; and imagining new futures. Each of the four touring shows will also adapt to local contexts: in Wolverhampton the exhibition looks at how we live with and give voice to difference, and in Manchester the exhibition will engage with the evolving nature of work and the ongoing struggle to shape a new social contract.

08.07.21 - 'Masterpieces in Miniature' is now open
'Masterpieces in Miniature: The 2021 Model Art Gallery’ is now on show at Pallant House in Chichester, including miniature works created by Cecily Brown, Michael Landy and Caragh Thuring.
The works, which all range from the size of a pound coin to no larger than 20cm, were made during lockdown. The 2021 Model Art Gallery will be displayed alongside two earlier model galleries – The Thirty Four Gallery and The Model Gallery 2000. Together, the galleries tell the story of Modern British art from the 1930s until today, providing an insight into the evolution of styles and influences across the decades and how different generations of artists have approached the unique challenges of working in miniature.
The earliest model gallery in Pallant House Gallery’s collection, The Thirty Four Gallery, was inspired by the 1924 Queen Mary’s Doll’s House at Windsor Castle. It was created in 1934, when art dealer Sydney Burney asked some of his most notable contemporaries, including Henry Moore, Ivon Hitchens and Vanessa Bell to create miniature artworks to fill a dolls house in support of charity. Lost for decades, some of the works were rediscovered in a suitcase by Burney’s grandson. The model was recreated by Pallant House Gallery in 1997 based on photographs of the original designed by the architect Marshall Sissons.
Exhibition dates: Saturday 26 June 2021 - Spring 2022
07.07.21 - Michel François at Halle Verrière
Michel François’ works ‘Panoptique’ are now on show at Halle Verrière, Meisenthal, France.
“I like the edges, borders, thresholds. I like to be able to crystallise the moment where everything can tip from one side to the next and suggest the possibility of a transgression, a passage. Many of the works I imagine express that, and seek to fix the relative inconstancy of a moment or of a sometimes indiscernible limit.” - Michel François
On view until September 2021.
06.07.21 - 'Michael Landy's Welcome to Essex' - a documentary

For his first major public gallery exhibition in the UK for almost a decade - and on the 20th anniversary of one of his most famous works, ‘Break Down’ - Landy has produced a series of ambitious new commissions based on the history of Essex and his fascination with the county’s contemporary portrayal in popular culture.
Visitors to Firstsite can also see ‘Michael Landy’s Break Down: 20 Years’, an archive exhibition of previously unseen documentation, video footage, drawings and ephemera from Landy's ground-breaking 2001 work.
Exhibition dates: 26 June - 5 September 2021
23.06.21 - Paul Pfeiffer and Languid Hands in conversation
Paul Pfeiffer and Languid Hands will be in conversation with Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa on 1 July at 7pm GMT, in ‘Figuring the Invisible: anti-Blackness, Art & Testimony.’
To follow Anne Anlin Cheng, what happens when we ‘shift our attention away from the visibility of race to its visuality?’
What happens when we attend to the strategic modes of appearance within the visible developed by racialised subjects, or modelled to us through their art? What happens when we consider racialised forms of visuality and aurality as tactics designed not solely to evade racialised violence, but as methods of manifesting and mobilising subaltern histories, and embodied forms of knowing?
How should we respond to the grammars of black performance – in word, image and sound – as practices of knowing? How do we respond to the ongoingness of truths known to racialised subjects that are nevertheless inadmissible within the normative strictures of ‘proof,’ or the standard forms of documentary practice?
These questions will be taken up in a discussion between Paul Pfeiffer and Languid Hands, moderated by Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa, in a panel that centres around a screening of Pfeiffer’s ‘The Long Count’ (I Shook Up The World, 2000), Caryatid (Broner, 2020), and Languid Hands’s Towards a Black Testimony: Prayer/Protest/Peace (2019).

21.06.21 - Cecily Brown commission will feature as part of The Courtauld's reopening
A new large-scale painting by Cecily Brown will go on display in November 2021 as part of The Courtauld Gallery’s most significant modernisation project in its history.
The work has been specially commissioned for the curved wall of the historic 18th century staircase, and will reflect Cecily Brown’s deep interest in the paintings in the Gallery’s collection.
The commission revisits the early history of the building. In the 18th century a painting by Giovanni Battista Cipriani occupied this same location when this part of Somerset House was home to the Royal Academy of Arts.
The commission has been supported by The Garcia Family Foundation.
