Bruce Davidson + Basil Beattie - A United Kingdom + Pathfinder
Bruce Davidson - The show consists of works by American photographer Bruce Davidson, revealing life in the United Kingdom as he found it in the early 1960s. The photographs were published on 12 April 1961 under the title ‘Seeing Ourselves as an American Sees Us: A Picture Essay on Britain’
Basil Beattie - One of the more significant and singular abstract artists to emerge in post-war Britain, known for his monumental compositions, the physicality of his paint and gestural use of symbols and signs. Influenced by Abstract Expressionism, Beattie brought the grandeur and scale of the New York School to London. The exhibition is held in conjunction with Hales Gallery, London.
