21st Century Women

Unit London
3 Hanover Square, Mayfair, London W1S 1HD

6 October – 3 November 2018.
Monday – Saturday: 11am–7pm. Sunday: 12pm–6pm

Curators Fru Tholstrup and Jane Neal bring a host of British female artists to our new Mayfair gallery to celebrate the centenary of (some but not all) women receiving the right to vote in Britain, creating a powerful new exhibition of emerging and established contemporary British women artists.

Launching in tandem with Frieze art week, the show includes British artists who examine the role of women in contemporary society; others who are motivated by the body politics surrounding the objectification of the female form; and those who question the fractured sense of being that many contemporary women feel today. Some of the artists included have chosen work that is not intended to be read and interpreted through the lens of their sex. This is a show about the freedom of women to make the art that they choose.

21st Century Women will feature the following artists: Helen Beard, Zoe Buckman, Charlotte Colbert, Laura Ford, Eloise Fornieles, Anna Freeman Bentley, Maggi Hambling, Chantal Joffe, Kate MccGwire, Polly Morgan, Annie Morris, Suzy Murphy, Ishbel Myerscough, Vicken Parsons, Jenny Saville, Sue Webster, Vicky Wright, and Michaela Yearwood-Dan.

Viv Albertine and Sue Webster in Conversation

Royal Academy of Arts
The Benjamin West Lecture Theatre, Burlington Gardens, London

Friday 14 September 2018. 6–7 pm

Musician, filmmaker and author Viv Albertine and artist Sue Webster discuss how not conforming has shaped and influenced their professional and personal lives – both creatively and spiritually. Their conversation will be chaired by broadcaster and journalist Miranda Sawyer.

Viv Albertine has never shied away from challenges. The guitarist in The Slits – one of the most influential post-punk bands of its era – she studied film in the 1980s and directed for TV and the BFI during the 1980s and 1990s. In 2008, she returned to making music after an absence of nearly thirty years and launched her solo career. In 2013 she published a memoir, the best selling Clothes, Clothes, Clothes. Music, Music, Music. Boys, Boys, Boys, chronicling her time in The Slits and beyond. In 2015 she made her acting debut in Joanna Hogg's 2015 film, Exhibition.

This year, Albertine published her second book, To Throw Away Unopened, which explores class, gender, parents, sibling rivalry and anger.

Sue Webster is an artist who established her reputation in the 1990s, working with her then-partner of 25 years, Tim Noble. Together they rose to prominence making abstract shadow sculptures assembled from seemingly random objects. These sculptures, when lit by a single light source transformed into representational self portraits. To make something from nothing became an important part of their DIY signature approach, influenced in part by British Punk. Alongside their shadow sculptures, they also took light sculpture into a different realm, creating signs which perpetually flash out messages of everlasting love, as well as hate.

Webster has curated various exhibitions, happenings and music events as well as guest editing several special editions of magazines. She is currently working on her second visual biography entitled, I Was a Teenage Banshee – My Life Through Siouxsie and the Banshees.

This event will be followed by a Q&A.

Doodle & Disegno is a group exhibition gathering over 100 works on paper from over 25 contemporary artists, demonstrating the endless possibilities of this humble and familiar artistic surface.

Encompassing works from elaborate pencil drawings to a quick splash of ink, this exhibition examines the importance of paper in the practice of contemporary artists.

Artists: Avigdor Arikha; Agathe de Bailliencourt; Ali Banisadr; Marius Bercea; Gabriella Boyd; Jonas Burgert; Enrique Martinez Celaya; Jake & Dinos Chapman; Lynn Chadwick; Francesco Clemente; Alex Dordoy; Amy Feldman; Rachel Howard; Joanna Kirk; Ed Moses; Pietro Ruffo; Sean Scully; Chiharu Shiota; Michael Simpson; Joan Snyder; Bosco Sodi; John Stezaker; Henning Strassburger; Liliane Tomasko; Nasan Tur; Bernar Venet; Bill Viola; Tim Noble and Sue Webster and Lawrence Weiner.

NGORONGORO II

Berlin Gallery Weekend
Lehderstrasse 34, 13086 Berlin, Germany
www.artistweekend.com

26 – 29 April 2018, 10 am–midnight
Preview: Thursday 26 April 2018, 10 am–midnight
Opening party 6 pm–onwards

For the period of Berlin gallery weekend 2018 and the second time in its history the 6,000 square meter studio spaces of Lehderstrasse 34 will host an incredibly diverse exhibition of paintings, sculpture, multi media, installation, film and photography, in which artists invite artists to exhibit in the context of this studio environment, thus returning the viewer to the very place of art's genesis.

Tim Noble & Sue Webster are exhibiting three artworks, Double Header Double Pleasure, 2000; Untitled (Rat and Trap), 2005; and Sacrificial Heart, 2007.

The collision of so many differing artistic identities forms the foundation of the exhibition. In contrast to normative curatorial practices, the initiators of Ngorongoro trust in this phenomenon.

The process is aesthetic and intuitive. Artists inviting artists. The non-commercial background of the project allows the initiators to invite both internationally known and less recognized artists to participate, as such the exhibition highlights the influence and importance of artists engagement with the work of their contemporaries.

The exhibition is initiated by Christian Achenbach, Jonas Burgert, Zhivago Duncan, Andrej Golder, John Isaacs, Andreas Mühe, and David Nicholson.

Tim Noble & Sue Webster: Forever

Humber Street Gallery
46 Humber Street, Hull HU1 1TU, UK

16 March – 27 May 2018, 10am–6pm
Preview: 15 March 2018, 6.30–8.30pm

Internationally acclaimed artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster present three works from their prolific back catalogue. With a punk aesthetic, the artists combine form and anti-form to bring about the unexpected, creating new modes of portraiture and playing with the idea of how humans perceive abstract images and define them with meaning.

Parallel to their shadow investigations, Noble and Webster have created a series of light sculptures that reference iconic pop culture symbols represented in the form of shop-front-type signage and carnival shows inherent of British seaside towns, Las Vegas and Times Square. With the aid of complex light sequencing these signs perpetually flash and spiral out messages of everlasting love, and hate.

The three light installations in their Humber Street Gallery exhibition are sometimes referred to as anti-monuments; they are contradictory and reference our contemporary consumer culture.

Tim Noble and Sue Webster: The Masterpiece

Media Gallery, The University of Michigan Museum of Art
525 South State Street, Ann Arbor, 48109-1354, Michigan, U.S.

2 December 2017 – 13 May 2018

Since the 1980s, British artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster have been known for their shadow sculptures built from materials as diverse as scrap metal, garbage, taxidermy, and sex toys. When light is directed at these assemblages, they project shadows that are exceptionally accurate and intricate representations of other things entirely.

The Masterpiece (2014) is a shadow self-portrait of the artists created from metal casts of dead vermin they collected and welded together into a ball. From afar the casts appear to be a stunning abstract silver sculpture; on closer inspection the disturbing menagerie of creatures emerges, only to change form again—as a shadow on the wall—into a precise and elegant image that is astonishingly different from the objects that create it.

Turbulance

Golborne Gallery
72 Golborne Road, London W10 5PS

25 May – 6 June 2017

Curated by Alex Sain.

As yet another general election approaches, Turbulence brings together the work of British artists Kingsley Ifill, Alex Sain, Sue Webster and Jack Whitefield, aiming to illustrate the uncertainty of the times in which we are currently living. Where do we go from here? Can art, through self expression, make any positive contribution or are we merely adding fuel to the fire?

Works by Tim Noble and Sue Webster at this exhibition are The Simple Ones, 2017 and The Mastepiece, 2014.

Sticks with Dicks and Slits

Blain|Southern
4 Hanover Square, London W1S 1BP, UK

3 February – 25 March 2017
Private View: 2 February 2017, 6–8pm

STICKS WITH DICKS AND SLITS, a new body of sculptural works, Tim Noble and Sue Webster present pairs of giant self-portraits, stickfigures sculpted in twisted bronze. Based on handmade maquettes made with electrical wire, the sculptures are an act of upscaling playful ephemera into physically domineering artworks with a permanency and scale that transcends human limitations.

The initial maquettes for this new body of work were created during a residency on the Caribbean island of St Bart's. This idyllic environment was initially challenging for these urbanites who found themselves stripped of their usual impetus. Struggling with this creative impasse, they began doodling with electrical wire, quickly and intuitively producing two intimate self-portraits.

Part of a great tradition of artists-as-art, their personal image and the dynamic between them is an integral part of their work. As with previous self-portraits, these new paired sculptures express the artistic personae of the duo.

One pair features nudes of Tim urinating and Sue lactating – engaging in basic bodily functions is a recurring motif for the artists. The artists employ their own naked forms as a way to make art with a rawness and truth, using their warts-and-all inseparable dual image as a tool to critique narcissistic obsession.

The size, medium and aesthetic of their new sculptures are yet another bold development in a practice that Noble describes as 'consistently inconsistent.' Working at a scale that seems to contradict the materials, the artists achieve the sketchy, continuous effect of wire by employing the traditional technique of lost wax casting. The technique involves manipulating and casting rods of wax, before pouring molten metal into cavities to recreate the final sculpture in bronze. The resulting casts retain the spontaneity of the sculptor's hands, and remain humanised and true to the subject. The dimensional qualities vary between each pair yet they are united by a fluidity and lightness of gesture that is rare to see in large-scale sculpture.

One and Other

Zabludowicz Collection
176 Prince of Wales Road, London NW5 3PT, UK

19 January – 26 February 2017
Preview: 17 January 2017, 6–9pm

One and Other explores the duality that emerges from the daily performing of a persona other than ourselves. The show constitutes a spatial experiment in which the concept of the stage is used as a metaphor to investigate this duality. A parallel is drawn between the dynamic of an actor and their performed role onstage and our relationship to our projected personas on social media platforms. From this starting point the exhibition questions, through a range of contemporary artworks of different mediums, the permanence of our identity, what influences it, the multiple shapes it takes and our relationship towards the other self.

One and Other is curated by students of the MA Curating courses at Chelsea College of Art & Sir John Cass College of Art at London Metropolitan University. The resulting exhibition has been selected from over 3000 Collection works and brings together some of the most significant artists in contemporary art. The participating curators are: Caterina Avataneo, Ryan Blakeley, Nadine Cordial Settele, Sofía Corrales Akerman, Gaia Giacomelli and Angela Pippo. The exhibition will be accompanied by a public programme of events, curator-led tours and family workshops.

The Funnies

MOT International
Avenue Louise, Brussels 1000, Belgium

20 November 2015 – 30 January 2016
Private View: 19 November 2015, 6–9pm

Taking its title from the comic section of twentieth century American newspapers known as 'the funnies', this group exhibition will be an exploration of the simplistic visual language of the cartoon. Utilising exaggeration, perversion, slapstick and absurdity, the works in The Funnies will instantaneously convey complex themes through basic gestures. The exhibition is not conceived as an illustration of the comic strip, but rather as an extension of its unruly ethos.

The Funnies will include works by artists Charlie Billingham, Mel Bochner, Cosima von Bonin, Werner Büttner, George Condo, Philip Guston, Sanya Kantarovsky, Martin Kippenberger, Sarah Lucas, Simon Mathers, Helmut Middendorf, Oliver Osborne, Jon Pylypchuk, Anne Speier, Sue Webster & Tim Noble, Jesse Wine, Rose Wylie.

The Nude in the XX & XXI Century

Sotheby's
S|2 Gallery, 31 St. George Street, London W1S 2FJ

19 November 2015 – 15 January 2016
Private View: 18 November 2015, 6–8pm

Body politics surrounding The Nude in the 20th and 21st Centuries have provoked some of the most hotly contested debates in history. The human body, and most especially the naked human body, has fascinated artists for millennia ostensibly because, no matter what the era, our relationship with the corporeal is a necessary constant and our love affair with the body is intrinsic to our survival.

Curated by Jane Neal, The Nude in the XX & XXI Century comprises works from a selection of artists whose practices engage with the historic iconography of The Nude and who use this subject to consider the place of the body within our changing cultural landscape. With the increased intersection of the fine art and fashion worlds visible throughout Western media, the concept of 'Body Beautiful' has become something to aspire to – a new icon for our age – but one robbed of religious significance, romantic context, or intellectual import. In reaction to this act of dehumanisation, artists have focused on The Nude as a ground upon which to project desires and a motif through which they might explore sexuality, gender politics, and the relationship between the body and society. For artists the Nude remains an almost endless source of inspiration, occupying a unique place in art history as well as in our collective unconscious.

What Do Artists Do All Day? For years, Sue Webster and Tim Noble were the hippest power couple in the art world. Their punk aesthetic – creating modern sculpture from recycled rubbish – and the art they made out of their personal relationship made them a notorious artistic double act. They recently split, but continue to collaborate.

This film follows Sue Webster at work on new projects, including a cook book, painting nude portraits of Tim, and talking frankly and entertainingly about past success and her plans for the future as a solo artist.

Other Criteria

Publication: 20 November 2014

The Folly Acres Cook Book. British artist Sue Webster offers readers a rare glimpse into life as one half of the acclaimed artist-duo, Tim Noble and Sue Webster. The Folly Acres Cook Book combines recipes from the kitchen of the Gloucestershire smallholding shared by Tim and Sue, along with drawings, photographs, thoughts, anecdotes and personal memories.

Originally cooked for family and friends including the chef Mark Hix, and the singer songwriter PJ Harvey, the recipes form an illustrated diary of Webster's life between the years of 2010 and 2014. Testament to her irreverent humour, Webster includes both classic and experimental dishes, alongside creative instructions for life in the country. She explains: "As I executed each idea I would test it out on a variety of guinea pigs, and recorded each dish on my iPhone. Sometimes I got bored of the edible dish and would photograph the garbage in the bin – the potato peelings and egg shells, as I found this to be somehow more attractive and synonymous to the trash sculptures that Tim and I had made."

Introduced with an original poem by PJ Harvey that was inspired by her visit to Folly Acres, the Cook Book is hand-typed on a 1940s Olympia Robust typewriter originally developed for use by the German militia during World War II. Illustrated throughout with colour photographs and illustrations by both Tim and Sue.

Blind Painting

The Suzanne Geiss Company
76 Grand Street, New York, NY 10013

13 November – 20 December 2014
Private View: 13 November 2014, 6–8pm

Blind Painting, a solo exhibition of automatic paintings by Tim Noble and Sue Webster, will be the artists' first New York solo show since 2008. Known for their sculptural shadow portraits built from bones, detritus, and cast body parts, the artists engage codependent opposites like intimacy and alienation, sex and violence, and high and low culture.

Noble and Webster continue to explore cultural and psychological paradoxes through a new set of constraints in a new medium. For their "Blind Paintings," the artists voluntarily blindfold themselves to make portraits of each other from memory, surfacing tensions between familiarity and strangeness, control and chaos. Like the Surrealist's game of exquisite corpse, in which players collectively assemble a drawing by following absurd instructions, Noble and Webster welcome the effects of accident and the subconscious in their work. The series is comprised of large black and white paintings as well as smaller works on paper that the artists painted with their feet.

In the second series of "Feinschmecker" or "fine detail" paintings, the artists wipe and fling excess paint left over from the portraits onto blank canvases. A foil to the concentration and personal specificity of the blind-contour works, these unconstrained abstractions embody an act of doing without thinking, recalling Rorschach tests and stream of consciousness experimentation.

Half Cast at The Door

The project will also be showcasing a new interactive light technology in collaboration with the Lighting Design Collective and will be accompanied by a program of talks, events and performances.

What Marcel Duchamp Taught Me

The Fine Art Society
148 New Bond Street, London W1S 2JT.

10 October – 5 November 2014.

Marking the centenary of Duchamp's readymade, The Fine Art Society is proud to present a major group exhibition What Marcel Duchamp Taught Me. It is the largest show in the history of the gallery, taking over the entire five floors of the Bond Street townhouse as over 50 Contemporary artists respond to Duchamp and his legacy.

The readymade is a concept that challenged the very notion of art itself. As a result of this gesture, anything could be art if the artist chose it. Duchamp's impact not just as an artist but also as a great thinker and writer, is incalculable. His afterlife is undoubtedly phenomenal and his legacy is a subject continually discussed by art historians and critics. Yet it is so deeply embedded in the practice of art that it is hard to pin down. So instead The Fine Art Society has asked artists to respond directly and personally.

Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968) is a multifaceted figure who still looms large over contemporary art. Duchamp is worshipped by some and condemned by others – either way there is no disputing that he is one of the most influential artists of the twentieth and twenty first centuries.

The Space Where I Am, a group show exploring ideas of the void and emptiness from the 1960s to the present day. The exhibition's title is taken from philosopher Gaston Bachelard's book The Poetics of Space (1958), which describes the lived experience of space and where he contended "it is better to live in a state of impermanence than in one of finality". All of the assembled works examine the dialectic between absence and presence, primarily valuing absence in the construction of form.

Spinning Heads in Reverse (2006) by Tim Noble & Sue Webster actively plays with positive and negative space. Self-portraits of the artists appear to be both physically absent but simultaneously present, perhaps only truly resonating in the viewer's imagination. The exhibition includes work by Carl Andre, Keith Conventry, Lucio Fontana, Tom Friedman, John Gerrard, Michael Joo, Donald Judd, Rosy Keyser, Gordon Matta-Clark, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Tim Noble & Sue Webster, Gerhard Richter, James Turrell, Bill Viola, Lawrence Weiner, Rachel Whiteread.

Old Rope
Curated by Polly Morgan

Pippy Houldsworth Gallery
6 Heddon Street, London, W1B 4BT

11 July – 30 August, 2014

Old Rope, a group show curated by artist Polly Morgan. Bringing together work by Susan Collis, Martin Creed, Tracey Emin, Boo Saville, Amba Sayal-Bennett and Sue Webster, Morgan wishes to explore how each of these artists engages with the term 'Money for Old Rope'. The expression is said to come from a time when old ropes were picked apart for their frayed fibres and reused for caulking or stuffing mattresses. Another reading of this expression dates back to public executions when souvenir hunters would pay for pieces of a used noose transformed by its association with an infamous criminal.

1.pers.sing: Künsterkörper zwischen Selbstportät und Performance
(The Artist's Body Between Self-portrait and Performance)

b-05 Art and Design Center
Montabaur, Germany

26 May–22 September 2013

The exhibition – curated by Johannes Sperling – investigates the different approaches and motivations for the presentation of the self between portrait and performance. Artists have been exploring new ways of including their own body or their physicality within their work of art. The radicalism of the practice as the first of its kind was emphasized by its prohibition as displayed in a secretly taken photograph of Timm Ulrichs' restaged exhibition in a museum's storage facility.

The exhibition 1.pers.sing combines renowned international artists such as Candice Breitz, Jonathan Meese, Ai Weiwei, Ragnar Kjartansson and Tim Noble and Sue Webster.

Factual Nonsense–The Art and Death of Joshua Compston

Paul Stolper Gallery
31 Museum Street, London WC1A 1LH

21 June–31 August 2013.

Factual Nonsense – The Art and Death of Joshua Compston is both a biography and an alternative portrait of the 1990's art scene in London's East End.

Compston is perhaps best remembered for his collaborative street events; The Hanging Picnic, Compston's third and final summer event, was an art exhibition and picnic. Compston selected objects by 25 artists, including Iain Forysthe, Jane Pollard, Tim Noble and Sue Webster, to hang on the railings of Hoxton Square.

"So I was walking around Hoxton Square listening for inspiration. There were these group of men sitting on a bench drinking Special Brew shouting out slurry words to each other, and whoever was listening. I continued walking around the square, and shattering the sweet bird song was a crow hawking, the crow and the slurry men shooting offensive words spliced together in my mind. There and then the Abusive Bird Box was conceived.

The Hanging Picnic attracted many happy picnickers, my bird boxes installed on a near by tree, crowed out their abusive sound, "birth,birth,birth! work,work,work! fuck,fuck! death,death,death", until finally someone could take no more and yanked out the wires to a rapturous applause." Tim Noble.

55th Venice Biennale

Glasstress: White Light/White Heat
1 June – 24 November, 2013

In a unique collaboration between the Berengo Studio (Venice), Venice Projects (Venice), London College of Fashion and the Wallace Collection (London), Glasstress: White Light/White Heat presents a newly commissioned work by Tim Noble & Sue Webster together with other important contemporary artists of today, most of whom will be working in glass for the first time.

The exhibition builds on the success of two previous Venice Art Biennale Glasstress shows (2009, 2011), with some fifty artists invited to respond to the theme of light and heat, the components of fire, the fundamental elements involved in the formation of the universe and also the essence of glassblowing. Light is integral to our perception of glass, while heat is required to shape it. Curated by James Putnam and Adriano Berengo.

March 2013. 10am–6pm

Powerful, irreverent, subversive and humorous, the defining qualities of Tim and Sue's work have not been lost in translation as rings, necklaces and bracelets.

The infamous British double act were already familiar with the medium when they were approached by Louisa in 2004; Tim's mother was a goldsmith and before he met Sue, Tim wore a silver skull ring he modeled himself cast at his request, by his mother. Years later Tim gave the same designed ring cast in gold to Sue, soon after they had first met. This ring went on to inspire a series of cufflinks designed by Tim & Sue in 2004. [projects]
