It includes rarely seen plasters and drawings which have never been exhibited before and showcases the full evolution of Giacometti’s career across five decades.

 

The Trickle-Down Syndrome – Benedict Drew

8 Aug

7th June – 10th September 2017

Benedict Drew works across video, sculpture and music, creating large-scale multimedia installations which comment on the effects of socio-political and environmental issues. The artist’s most ambitious public presentation in the UK is on show at the Whitechapel Gallery this summer.

The Trickle-Down Syndrome is a new work comprising five connected yet distinct spaces which draw on wide-ranging references, from Hollywood director Busby Berkley’s 1930s stage-sets to the Surrealist landscapes of Max Ernst, continuing the artist’s exploration into materiality, where the physical and digital meet.

£14.50

The Barbican presents The Japanese House: Architecture and Life after 1945, the first major UK exhibition to focus on Japanese domestic architecture from the end of the Second World War to now – a field which has consistently produced some of the most influential and extraordinary examples of modern and contemporary design. Featuring over 40 architects, ranging from renowned 20th century masters and internationally celebrated contemporary architects to exciting figures little known outside of Japan, the exhibition celebrates some of the most ground-breaking architectural projects of the last 70 years.

At the heart of the exhibition is an ambitious and unprecedented full-size recreation of the Moriyama House (2005) by Pritzker-prize winning architect Ryue Nishizawa (SANAA). Visitors can weave in and out of the fully furnished units and garden, experiencing the remarkable house of Mr Moriyama in an immediate and physical way. Filling the other half of the Barbican’s lower galleries will be an eccentric and lovingly crafted Japanese tea house, commissioned for the exhibition from acclaimed architect, and highly respected historian of Japanese architecture, Terunobu Fujimori.

Digital Territories: Photography in the Online Environment at Barbican

Friday 24th March 2017

7pm

£10

Magnum photographer and publisher of Burn Magazine David Alan Harvey, will be in conversation with Magnum’s Digital Director Anne Bourgeois-Vignon and Rory Blain, Director of Sedition, to discuss the online space as a home for photography, for making, sharing, exhibiting, saving, following the launch of Magnum’s new digital publishing platform last July.

The speakers will tackle pertinent questions relating the implications of photography ‘living’ online; and what this means for photographers, publishers of, and consumers of photography. How can practitioners harness online communities to develop their practice and grow their audience? Where do we save and share our visual lives, and what does this mean for our visual literacy and memory?

The talk at the Barbican will be chaired by Aaron Schuman (curator, photographer and writer)
