DateSaturday 26th January 2019 to Saturday 18th May 2019
DescriptionThis will be the first exhibition in a new strand of programming at the Hatton Gallery premised on the visual synergies between different artists' bodies of work. This curatorial strategy seeks to deal creatively with the Hatton's collection, providing an alternative to strictly art-historical approaches. Francis Bacon's piece Study for Portrait No.6, 1956-7, one of the most iconic works in the Hatton collection is the catalyst for the exhibition Francis Bacon and Ellen Gallagher which sheds new light on each artists' work. Specifically, the exhibition will present a dialogue between oil paintings by Bacon and Morphia, a series of works on paper by Ellen Gallagher, considered one of the most acclaimed contemporary artists to have emerged from North America since the mid-1990s.
Time(s)From Jan 26, Mon-Sat 10am-5pm, ends May 18
