Late C20th-Recent Work - Mixed Medium
Lily van der Stokker - Thank You Darling
Camden Art Centre presents the first institutional solo exhibition in London by Lily van der Stokker (b. ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands, 1954), one of the Netherlands’ most celebrated contemporary artists.
The exhibition will bring together a group of works made by van der Stokker between 1989 and 2021, which address ideas of society, home, friendship, work, finances, illness and care; as well as speaking to this extraordinary contemporary moment. While some works have previously been realised in other contexts and spaces, others are presented across Camden Art Centre’s galleries for the first time. The exhibition will also include a number of original drawings on paper and works on canvas produced over the last 30 years.
At a time when we have all been forced to make drastic and once unthinkable changes to our lives, van der Stokker’s longstanding engagement with the supposedly ‘little’ themes of family, relationships, work, home and the domestic, feel more appropriate, more timely and more important than ever.
