Camden Arts Centre - Exhibitions for 2015

Season preview

CAMDEN Arts Centre has announced its exhibitions for 2015 and they include:

João Maria Gusmão + Pedro Paiva: Papagaio – January 30 to March 29 (Galleries 1, 2, artists’ studio and central space).

Celebrated Portuguese artists João Maria Gusmão and Pedro Paiva present a magical, immersive film installation at Camden Arts Centre – their first major show in London.

The kaleidoscopic world created by 27 16mm films and two camera obscura installations, takes viewers on an imaginative journey into science, philosophy and religion. Each film examines a particular subject – a treatise on material, animal or human behaviour – that probes at the nature of truth and perception.

Ruth Ewan: Back to the Fields – January 30 to March 29 (Gallery 3)

For this major new installation at Camden Arts Centre, London based artist Ruth Ewan brings to life the French Republican Calendar.

In use from 1793 until 1805, the calendar temporarily redefined and rationalised the Gregorian Calendar, stripping it of all religious references in post-revolutionary France. Months and weeks were restructured and seasons and days renamed in collaboration with artists, poets and horticulturalists to reflect the seasonality of nature and agriculture.

Simon Martin – April 10 to June 21.

A new film commissioned by Flamin – a continuation of Martin’s Ur Feeling project. In 2012, his exhibition of the same name was shown at Camden Arts Centre and is considered as the ‘trailer’ for this new film.

Jo Baer – April 10 to June 21.

An exhibition of work by Amsterdam based, American artist Jo Baer who emerged as one of the key figures of the Minimalist art movement in the 1960s and 70s. In 1983, she dramatically announced ‘I am no longer an abstract artist’.

This exhibition will centre around Baer’s most recent series, In the Land of the Giants, drawing a lineage from her earlier minimalist works, through her experiments with what she termed ‘radical figuration’ in the 1990s, through to her current exploration of esoteric imagery.

Hannah Collins – July 4 to September 13, 2015.

Hannah Collins is well known well for her large unframed photographs that cover whole walls, creating immersive spatial experiences. Her installations also extend to film and sound. Filling all of Camden Arts Centre’s galleries, the exhibition demonstrates Collins’ ability to convey the emotional aspects of space – across interiors, places of itinerancy and temporary inhabitation, sites of political significance as well as journeys into imaginative or unconscious realms.

Ben Rivers – September 25 to November 29.

A major solo show by Ben Rivers will bring together many of his works, including previous seminal works and a series of new films. Alongside his solo show, Rivers will curate a group show based on the concept of ‘edgelands’.

The exhibition will draw together a selection works that have inspired his interest in the borders of society, both physical spaces – often on the deserted peripheries of cities – and conceptually, where individuals are outside the mainstream culture.

Rose English – December 11, 2015 to February 21, 2016.

An exhibition of work by Rose English, who emerged out of the UK’s vibrant and pioneering feminist, conceptual art and dance scenes of the 1970s. She has worked across numerous disciplines, contexts and under many different guises exploring performance, installation, theatre, dance and film. This exhibition will include new work produced for the exhibition within the vocabulary of her practice of the last 40 years.

Opening times: Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 6pm; Wednesdays late, 10am to 9pm; closed Mondays.
