Triste contenance de la Sculpture placée au milieu de la Peinture
Daumier, Honoré, 1857
Drawing on archive material, documentation, historical and contemporary works, In form… proposes a taxonomic presentation of the varying forms and conditions under which sculptural practice and the subjective experiences it might produce are controlled, engineered and enacted. The exhibition, symposium and screening programme explore materiality, generative processes, modes of encounter and narrative and structural agency. Curated by Mike Cooter.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a Symposium on 30 October 2013, in collaboration with CCW Graduate School.

Peter Blake: Four Decades
Prints selected by the artist
Exhibition runs: Wednesday 15th May 2013 – 28th July 2013
Chelsea Futurespace proudly presents Four Decades an exhibition of prints by Sir Peter Blake, selected by the artist. Blake’s work takes its influence from the realms of pop culture, literature, music and contemporary art. The suites of prints in the exhibition include his series of Appropriated Alphabets, Alice in Wonderland, The Butterfly Man (Homage to Damien Hirst) and Homage to Schwitters. Other highlights include prints from the Found Art series, screenprints from collage and portraits of musicians including Chuck Berry, Brian Wilson, Ian Dury, The Everly Brothers and The Clash. The show covers the diversity and dexterity of Blake’s practice as an artist working in print across the last four decades.
Sir Peter Blake is renowned for his influence on Pop Art and culture and is frequently referred to as the ‘Godfather of British Pop Art’. He has worked with bands and musicians including The Beatles, Oasis and Paul Weller, designing the iconic cover for The Beatles’ ‘Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’. Blake’s work transcends the divisions between high art and pop culture, with visual influences from artists such as Kurt Schwitters to music icon Frank Sinatra.
An internationally acclaimed artist, Sir Peter Blake (born 1932) studied at Gravesend Technical College before attending the Royal College of Art. He subsequently taught there and at other institutions including St Martin’s College. A major retrospective of his work Now We Are 64 took place at the National Gallery in 1996 and at Tate Liverpool in 2007. Sir Peter Blake was knighted in 2002, for services to art.
Exhibition in association with CCA Galleries and Paul Stolper Gallery.
As with each exhibition at Chelsea Futurespace, a new publication will accompany the show, published by CHELSEA space.
