English conceptual artist Stephen Willats (b.1943) pioneered socially interactive and community engaged art in the 1960s and 70s. This archive display focuses on his exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1979 and includes Sorting Out Other People’s Lives (1978), a work made with residents of the Ocean housing estate in Tower Hamlets in which Willats explores the intersection between community and home life through recordings and photographs.
This latest exhibition brings together 100 pieces of Hannah Hoch's work, revealing how she questioned relationships, beauty and the making of art.
Turner Prize-winning artist Elizabeth Price’s film is a study of desire and consumption. It was shot in the former home of an anonymous art collector which remains a iconic example of 1960s architecture and interior design.
Price takes us on a tour through the house and itsowner’s collection. Her camera lingers over surfaces and textures, taking equal delight in the angular modernis furniture by architect Mies van der Rohe or the curves of a Barbara Hepworthbronze sculpture.
This display shows visions of the English East coast over the past 200 years, featuring artists such as John Constable and Grayson Perry. It considers the influence of technology and local art schools in the local area on the work of the artists featured.
