10 - 5pm, Wednesday 14th Oct
Maggi Hambling - 2020
The exhibition of recent paintings coincides with Hambling’s 75th Birthday, marking both a moment of looking in - a self-reckoning - as much as a commentary on the world, responding to the seismic events of the present.
- 9.30am – photo-call with Maggi Hambling
- 10am-12pm – interview slots available with the artist by advance request
- 12pm – 5pm – private appointments available to view the exhibition (gallery staff available to give walk-throughs if required)
Made from the imagination, these phantasmal but very much present images– including 'Baby Elephant abandoned', and a captive Young Dancing Bear, portray a world of alive but suffering and imperilled creatures.
Hambling is the subject of a documentary film commissioned by the BBC - `Making love with the paint` - made by the director Randall Wright over the past two years. The film will be premiered to coincide with this exhibition.
