Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child at Hayward Gallery

Showing at the Southbank Centre’s Hayward Gallery, The Woven Child explores the later career of French-American artist Louise Bourgeois, and stands as the first major retrospective to focus on her use of fabric and textiles. Incorporating such materials as bed linen, handkerchiefs, and tapestry, the works displayed in the exhibition will include figurative sculpture, monumental installations, and abstract collage. These works reflect Bourgeois’ career-long themes of identity, sexuality, guilt and trauma as they developed in her later life, and the use of textiles to further explore these themes in her old age.

Spider, Louise Bourgeois, 1997

Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child is showing at Hayward Gallery from 9th February - 15th May

Francis Bacon: Man and Beast at the Royal Academy

Spanning the 50 years of Francis Bacon’s work, Man and Beast explores the Irish-born artist’s career-long interest in animals, and the blurring of lines between the primal and the human. Banished from his conservative family home by his father at the age of 16, and living as an openly gay man in a time when homosexuality was still criminalised, the paintings displayed in this exhibition reflect the anxiety of these personal persecutions, alongside the turbulence and upheaval of 20th Century Europe. The inherent surrealism in these distorted human and animal bodies capture both subjects at their most extreme, reflecting Bacon’s desire to understand the true nature of humankind through the uninhibited behaviour of animals.

Second Version of Triptych 1944, Francis Bacon, 1988

Francis Bacon: Man and Beast is showing at the Royal Academy from 29th January - 17th April

Surrealism Beyond Borders at Tate Modern

One of the major displays at the Tate Modern this year, this exhibition seeks to reframe surrealism as “not a style - but a state of mind”. With the study of surrealism frequently preoccupied with the influence of 1920s Paris, Surrealism Beyond Borders seeks to expand its gaze to such diverse global artists as Leonora Carrington, Toshiko Okanoue, Ramses Younan and Kaveh Golestan. In its desire to challenge authority and subvert reality, surrealism is no respecter of borders, and this exhibition seeks to frame the cultural and artistic discussion of it accordingly.

Self-Portrait, Leonora Carrington, c.1937-1938

Surrealism Beyond Borders is showing at the Tate Modern from 24th February - 29th August

Van Gogh Self-Portraits at Courtauld Gallery

The newly-reopened Courtauld Gallery utilises Vincent van Gogh’s iconic Self Portrait with Bandaged Ear from its permanent collection as the centrepiece of a display of over 15 self-portraits from across the painter’s life. The exhibition serves as the first in the Morgan Stanley series of high-profile temporary exhibitions at the gallery, as well as an opportunity to appreciate both the life and work of van Gogh across his all-too short career.

Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear, Vincent van Gogh, 1889

Van Gogh Self-Portraits is showing at Courtauld Gallery from 3rd February - 8th May

Walter Sickert at Tate Britain

With connections to Whistler and Degas, Walter Sickert both strengthened artistic connections between Britain and France and helped to redefine the British art world as we know it today. With their first major exhibition of his work in over 60 years, the Tate Britain explores the vibrant, colourful paintings of Sickert and the development of themes such as current events, performativity, and the emergence of celebrity culture over the course of his career. With imagination and compelling narratives left open to interpretation, the exhibition stands as a golden opportunity to see the colour and intimacy of Sickert’s paintings in person and isn’t to be missed.

Brighton Pierrots, Walter Sickert, 1915

Walter Sickert is showing at the Tate Britain from 28th April - 18th September

Surrealism Beyond Borders at Tate Modern

One of the major displays at the Tate Modern this year, this exhibition seeks to reframe surrealism as “not a style - but a state of mind”. With the study of surrealism frequently preoccupied with the influence of 1920s Paris, Surrealism Beyond Borders seeks to expand its gaze to such diverse global artists as Leonora Carrington, Toshiko Okanoue, Ramses Younan and Kaveh Golestan. In its desire to challenge authority and subvert reality, surrealism is no respecter of borders, and this exhibition seeks to frame the cultural and artistic discussion of it accordingly.

Van Gogh Self-Portraits at Courtauld Gallery

The newly-reopened Courtauld Gallery utilises Vincent van Gogh’s iconic Self Portrait with Bandaged Ear from its permanent collection as the centrepiece of a display of over 15 self-portraits from across the painter’s life. The exhibition serves as the first in the Morgan Stanley series of high-profile temporary exhibitions at the gallery, as well as an opportunity to appreciate both the life and work of van Gogh across his all-too short career.

Walter Sickert at Tate Britain

With connections to Whistler and Degas, Walter Sickert both strengthened artistic connections between Britain and France and helped to redefine the British art world as we know it today. With their first major exhibition of his work in over 60 years, the Tate Britain explores the vibrant, colourful paintings of Sickert and the development of themes such as current events, performativity, and the emergence of celebrity culture over the course of his career. With imagination and compelling narratives left open to interpretation, the exhibition stands as a golden opportunity to see the colour and intimacy of Sickert’s paintings in person and isn’t to be missed.
