Brighton Pierrots, Walter Sickert, 1915

Walter Sickert at Tate Britain

The first major retrospective of Sickert’s work at the Tate in over 60 years, Walter Sickert at Tate Britain provides a comprehensive exhibition of works by one of the 20th Century’s most important and influential artists. Sickert continues to be a key influence on a number of painters to this day, with his former life as an actor coming through in his fascination with theatricality, performers, and the emerging notion of celebrity and - though his friendship with artists such as Edgar Degas and James Abbott McNeil Whistler - he forged artistic ties between Britain and France throughout the century. Tate Britain’s exhibition spotlights some of Sickert’s more boundary-pushing work, with a central portion of the display dedicated to a series of nudes depicted starkly in intimate, domestic settings, and his paintings of music hall performers conjuring a surreal and disturbing view of performance and audience. Uncomfortable viewing as it may be at times, the exhibition stands as a must-see for London-based art-lovers.

Walter Sickert is showing at Tate Britain until 18th September 2022

For the Record: Photography and the Art of the Album Cover exhibition view

For the Record: Photography and the Art of the Album Cover at The Photographers’ Gallery

Currently showing at The Photographers’ Gallery, For the Record presents a look into the art form of album covers and the role they play in the music industry. Featuring work by such artists as Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman and Guy Bourdin as well as lesser-known photographers and designers, the exhibition is displayed thematically; from Francis Wolff’s iconic black-and-white photography for the Blue Note jazz label to the technicolour surrealism of Hipgnosis Design Agency’s collaborations with Pink Floyd, For the Record crosses genre and form to give a visual history of the album cover as object d’art. Also worth visiting at The Photographers’ Gallery is the 2022 Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize exhibition, showcasing the work of nominees Anastasia Samoylova, Jo Ractliffe, Deana Lawson and Gilles Peress. Covering such topics as black representation, post-apartheid South Africa, the streets of Northern Ireland and the effects of the climate crisis in Florida, the exhibition showcases some of the most vital photographers working in the field today. The prize winner will be announced at a special award ceremony held at the gallery on 12th May.

Reframed: The Woman in the Window at Dulwich Picture Gallery

Showing at London’s historic Dulwich Picture Gallery, Reframed: The Woman in the Window brings together over fifty artworks from the ancient world to the modern day. Investigating the visual motif of its title, the show charts the history of the ‘woman in the window’ and considers what its proliferation can tell us about issues of gender and visibility. In doing so, curator Dr Jennifer Sliwka brings together work from such mediums as sculpture, painting, print, photography, film and installation; taking the gallery’s own Girl at a Window (1645) by Rembrandt as a starting point, the exhibition also includes such highlights as Louise Bourgeois’ My Blue Sky (1989 - 2003), David Hockney’s The Tower Had One Window (1969) and Howard Hodgkin’s Girl by a Window (1964), along with works by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Cindy Sherman, Wolfgang Tillman and Rachel Whitehead. By bringing together so many occurrences, this exhibition investigates how the same motif has been employed throughout the ages to elicit different responses, from judgement and voyeurism to empathy and understanding.

Reframed: The Woman in the Window at Dulwich Picture Gallery

Showing at London’s historic Dulwich Picture Gallery, Reframed: The Woman in the Window brings together over fifty artworks from the ancient world to the modern day. Investigating the visual motif of its title, the show charts the history of the ‘woman in the window’ and considers what its proliferation can tell us about issues of gender and visibility. In doing so, curator Dr Jennifer Sliwka brings together work from such mediums as sculpture, painting, print, photography, film and installation; taking the gallery’s own Girl at a Window (1645) by Rembrandt as a starting point, the exhibition also includes such highlights as Louise Bourgeois’ My Blue Sky (1989 - 2003), David Hockney’s The Tower Had One Window (1969) and Howard Hodgkin’s Girl by a Window (1964), along with works by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Cindy Sherman, Wolfgang Tillman and Rachel Whitehead. By bringing together so many occurrences, this exhibition investigates how the same motif has been employed throughout the ages to elicit different responses, from judgement and voyeurism to empathy and understanding.

Reframed: The Woman in the Window is showing at Dulwich Picture Gallery until 4th September 2022
