Hrair Sarkissian @ The Mosaic Rooms

unnamedHrair Sarkissian: Imagined Futures
13 March – 25 April 2015

Imagined Futures showcases two projects, made seven years apart, that both deal with issues of temporality: one with a non-time, a suspended unrecognised present; the other constituting a projection from an envisioned future that threatens to rupture the present at any moment. Together these bodies of work visualise that which is out of time – histories, people and narratives that have yet to be realised, political spectres that intrude upon the present. These emotive and resonant works engage the viewer beyond the reductive reportage of immediate information media, and make seen what is unseeable, the prospects of time.

MARTIN HUNTER @ Hillhead Library

unnamedMARTIN HUNTER: Forth & Clyde
14th February – 27th March

Martin Hunter’s Forth & Clyde captures an interzone between past and present, the dereliction of industry and the reclamation of nature. In this series, Hunter searches off the beaten track along the once thriving canal route that linked the River Forth and the River Clyde, intersecting with the pathways along the River Kelvin, “places left behind by recession, over-run by nature, and occasionally-inhabited by groups of men who seek the outdoors for a brew and a blether”
(Document Scoltand).

Eliška Bartek – “Secret Photography”
7th February until 18th March

In search of the ” autonomous image”, of motives beyond the prototype nature, is where the artist Eliška Bartek takes us. Her work can be seen in the tradition of Jaromir Funke, who recognized in the photogram a ” photographic poetry, which reveals the form”. The Austrian art historian Timm Starl pointed out that the protagonists of the photogram always described their technology as a method beyond the photographic. Starl writes: “The photogram is the track, while the photograph calls attention only.” Eliška Bartek was born 1950 in Novy Jicin in Czechoslovakia and is now living in Berlin and Tessin (Switzerland).

Dandy Lion: (Re) Articulating Black Masculine Identity
APRIL 6 – JULY 12, 2015

Dandy Lion: (Re) Articulating Black Masculine Identity seeks to distinguish the contemporary expressions of the Black Dandy phenomenon in popular culture. The first comprehensive exhibition of its kind, this project highlights young men in city-landscapes who defy stereotypical and monolithic understandings of Black masculinity by remixing Victorian-era fashion with traditional African sartorial sensibilities.

Henri Cartier-Bresson @ BEETLES+HUXLEY

Henri Cartier-Bresson: A Decisive Collection
25 February – 26 March 2015

This promises to be one of the most significant photography exhibitions in London this spring and is centred around a private collection of prints, curated according to the particular tastes and interests of the collector. As a result, the exhibition contains a fascinating balance of images, some of which are well-known and some of which are virtually unseen. In particular, the collection boasts several unusual sets of photographs including: Paris (particularly during the 1968 student protests); the USSR during the early 1970s; and celebrity portraiture – an often overlooked element of Cartier-Bresson’s oeuvre. The exhibition features portraits of sitters including Francis Bacon, Albert Camus, Coco Chanel, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Jean-Paul Sartre, Igor Stravinsky and other important cultural figures.
