Alex Lowery & Graeme Williams: Painting West Bay, Photographing South Africa
7 – 29 June 2019
curated by Art First
Silent architectural exteriors, empty of human form but fully suggestive of human occupancy is Alex Lowery and Graeme Williams’s subject matter. The two artists work in quite different contexts and mediums yet produce images that share deep affinities – a connection which is revealed in the Eagle Gallery’s forthcoming exhibition, curated by Art First.
Dorset’s West Bay and the island of Portland have been leitmotifs in Alex Lowery’s paintings for over two decades. The bright marine light that pervades his work suggests the presence of the sea, while describing the man-made forms that exist at the sea’s edge: jetties, warehouses, piers and seafront homes. Lowery’s reductive, modernist approach creates a distinctive meditative beauty that is tinged with poetic melancholy.
10 - 28 June 2019
Platform Foundation inaugural exhibition is presented in partnership with Soho House & Co. and is curated by Kate Bryan, arts broadcaster and Head of Collections Soho House.
“Generation Y” will open to the public on June 10th and will feature a selection of 30 bright young artists from the Soho House Art Collection. This selling exhibition will show a diverse range of mediums, styles and genres, representing a cross-section of the work produced by emerging artists today.
Kate Bryan comments: “It’s no easy thing to be a young artist in London at the moment and I am so thrilled that Platform Foundation exists as a vehicle to select, support, promote and sell work with the added benefit of being a not for profit space.”
Merete Rasmussen: New Work
14 Jun 2019 – 17 Aug 2019
Pangolin London are delighted to present an exhibition of exquisite new work by Merete Rasmussen. Known for her signature abstract ceramic and bronze forms brought to life with bold, bright colour this highly anticipated solo show is her first since leaving London for the beautiful countryside of East Sussex four years ago.
Merete Rasmussen has been working the same stoneware for over twenty years to create her boldly coloured, gravity-defying sculptural ceramics. Widely collected across the globe and by institutions such as the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Museum of Art & Design, New York, Rasmussen's hand-built ceramics and cast bronzes delight the eye with their flowing forms and movement.

Sophie Seita. My Little Enlightenment Plays
14 Jun 2019 – 6 Jul 2019
Highlighting the Enlightenment’s relevance to our contemporary artistic and political preoccupation with ‘values’ and ‘truth’, the exhibition tests knowledge, universality, rationality, certain forms of empiricism, individuality and progress, asking: for what and whom? How and how far? In a time of ‘alternative facts’, how can we salvage the speculative in creative work and follow its utopian promise towards imaginative ways of producing and distributing knowledge? What would a new feminist, queer, and welcoming ‘Republic of Letters’ look like today?
