Broadbent Gallery Summer schedule

Broadbent Gallery Summer schedule: June – September 2004

Slow Art : June 15th – July 10th.
“What we need more of is slow art: art that holds time as a vase holds water: art that grows out of modes of perception and making whose skill and doggedness make you think and feel; art that isn't merely sensational, that doesn't get its message across in ten seconds, that isn't falsely iconic, that hooks onto something deep-running in our natures.” Robert Hughes at the Royal Academy Annual Dinner June 2004

This exhibition is a response to the above quote from Robert Hughes. The artists shown have very diverse ways of creating work, and different intentions, but all fall within the boundaries of the remarks made by Robert Hughes. The exhibition is intended to demonstrate that although not always considered fashionable nonetheless there is a dynamic, active area of painting that sometimes falls away from the mainstream ‘mass-media’ characterisation of art. And which highlights the notion of painting as something that benefits not from a “lifetime of experience” but from the more demanding “lifetime of practice”.

Exhibition includes works by Luke Elwes, Ingrid Kerma, Pierre Imhof, Alf Löhr, Kate Palmer, Andrew Vass

Sam Francis and Contemporaries: 14th July – 4th September
Sam Francis sometimes seems to occupy a curious place in the history of Abstract Expressionism. He spent time in New York – where he exhibited with amongst other “first generation” abstract expressionists Jackson Pollock at the Martha Jackson Gallery - but perhaps was more influenced by his time in Europe and in particular Paris. In the 1950s straddling the Atlantic in this way he was involved in numerous group shows, exhibiting with a wide range of artists.

This exhibition brings together some of the people he exhibited with in the 1950s and shows the range of art being produced at this time. As well as work produced by Sam Francis from the 1950s in New York and Europe, the show will also include works by Cy Twombly, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Mark Tobey, Karel Appel, and Alan Davie, among others.
