Dreamers Awake

 

White Cube

 

Curated by Susanna Greeves

 

White Cube is pleased to present ‘Dreamers Awake’, a group show which explores the enduring influence of Surrealism through the work of more than fifty women artists. The exhibition brings together sculpture, painting, collage, photography and drawing from the 1930s to the present day and includes work by well-known Surrealist figures as well as contemporary and emerging artists.

 

Woman has a powerful presence in Surrealism. She is the object of masculine desire and fantasy; a harpy, goddess or sphinx; a mystery or threat. Often, she appears decapitated, distorted, trussed up. Fearsome or fetishized, she is always the ‘other’. From today’s perspective, gender politics can seem the unlikely blind spot of a movement that declared war on patriarchal society, convention and conformity.

Barry Bliss: Author/photographer

Contemporary paintings by featured artists:

Katrina Blannin, Jane Bustin, Rebecca Byrne,

Claudia Carr, Emma Cousin, Sharon Drew,

Roxana Halls, Selma Parlour, Carol Robertson

and Yukako Shibata

 

Using the same 1932 Leica camera model as Gerda Taro used to document her experiences of the Spanish Civil War, Barry Bliss’s reportage photographs of contemporary female London-based artists capture the determined start of the creative process. This exhibition presents a selection of Bliss’s portraits, along side chosen paintings from each artist by the curators, and a representational object from each, revealing the determined end of the creative process. The mark has been made!

An Exhibition of Works by Members of Contemporary British Painting

Selected by Anna McNay

 

Despite, and perhaps because of, the global, mass and social medial world in which it exists, contemporary British painting is and remains something complexly personal, defined as much by its breadth and multiple individualities as by any pervading style or theory. This exhibition, drawn from the work of members of the Contemporary British Painting group, does not seek to define what might well be an undefinable beast. In part an open call salon and in part curated according to the tastes of art writer and editor Anna McNay, it brings together a variety of works to combat the all too pervasive false transmission of painting as reproduction (be it printed or digital) and to put paintings as objects in and of themselves out there to be experienced by the public.
