Art Projects: ‘Dialogues’ curated by Anna Colin.

Anna Colin will curate ‘Dialogues’ for Art Projects 2015, featuring collaborative presentations between invited UK and International galleries. Building on last year’s successful collaborations, the section promises unique, shared presentations featuring the freshest contemporary art from across the globe. Anna is co-curator of the next British Art Show, associate curator at Fondation Galeries Lafayette in Paris and co-founder of Open School East. Art Projects continues to garner widespread critical acclaim and a distinct audience, featuring large-scale installations, solo shows and group displays, alongside an extensive Film Programme.

Photo50 curated by Sheyi Bankale

Photo50, the Fair’s annual showcase of contemporary photography returns for 2015. Entitled ‘Against Nature’, this year’s exhibition, curated by Sheyi Bankale, presents a series of questions considering what it is to look at and display a photograph. How does a photograph become elevated to the status of an object, act or intervention? The title is in homage to the novel ‘Against Nature’ by J K Huysman. A variety of installations challenge our assumed presumptions of photographic representation. These frameworks will be the touchstone of the exhibition, blurring the boundary between the tangible object and the photographic aesthetic plane. The Fair’s Photography Focus Day takes place on Wednesday 21 January with artist talks, guided tours and panel discussions examining contemporary photographic practice.

 

Sponsors

New for 2015, The Macallan, the Fair’s Official Single Malt Whisky Sponsor, will host a Masters of Photography Lounge on the mezzanine next to Photo50. London Art Fair is also delighted to welcome the following returning sponsors and partners for 2015: Peroni Nastro Azzurro – VIP and Thursday Late Drinks Sponsor Natuzzi – VIP Furniture Partner Maybourne Hotel Group (Claridge’s, The Connaught and The Berkeley) – Official Hotel Partners Lund Humphries – Sponsor Expofreight – Official Packing Company

About Pallant House Gallery, Chichester, West Sussex:

“The collection is a revelation.” Jackie Wullschlager, Financial Times

Pallant House Gallery has one of the most important public collections of Modern British art in the country, displayed in the unique setting of a Grade I listed Queen Anne townhouse and an award-winning contemporary extension, in Chichester, West Sussex. Originally founded in 1982, Pallant House Gallery opened in its present incarnation to national critical acclaim in 2006. The remarkable £10 million build project seamlessly married the original Queen Anne townhouse and the new wing. In recent years the Gallery has formed a reputation for its rolling programme of critically-acclaimed temporary exhibitions and displays incorporating national, international and contemporary art, and its pioneering Learning and Community Programme. It has won numerous awards and accolades including the 2007 Gulbenkian Prize and the Charity Award 2013, the highest profile event in the charity calendar, for Outside In, its flagship project aimed at those facing barriers to the art world.

The collection includes works by Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, Eduardo Paolozzi, Richard Hamilton and Patrick Caulfield. The core of this ‘collection of collections’ is Modern British art, but the collection also houses international works by the likes of Gino Severini, Paul Cézanne, Fernand Léger, as well as a growing collection of contemporary art. Virtually all the collection has been gifted or bequeathed by generous private collectors, whose different impulses have lent their own character to the collection, making the experience of Pallant House Gallery engaging, insightful and unique.

Major recent exhibitions organised by the Gallery have included re-assessments of Keith Vaughan, Eduardo Paolozzi and Leonora Carrington. Contemporary installations include a regular series of commissions for the staircase of the historic house, mostly recently by ceramic artist Bouke de Vries, and currently a textile installation by Alice Kettle. The current exhibition programme includes ‘Conscience and Conflict: British Artists and the Spanish Civil War’, a major review of British visual artists’ response to the Spanish Civil War, ‘Terry Frost: Eleven Poems by Federico García Lorca’ which features coloured etchings inspired by the writings of Federico García Lorca, and a display of important self-portraits from the Ruth Borchard collection.

Pallant House Gallery is a registered charity. Visit the website to find out more about the collection, exhibitions and programme of events and activities.www.pallant.org.uk
