'A JOURNEY HOME': TOM HUNTER AT HASTINGS MUSEUM AND ART GALLERY

9 February - 2 June 2019

To construct a contemporary photographic document of Hastings, Tom Hunter has collaborated with drivers from a local taxi firm, whilst referencing the collection of Hastings Museum and Art Gallery.
The taxi drivers, who represent the diverse community of Hastings, were invited by Hunter to choose their favourite locations in the area, to be photographed at either dusk or dawn during the periods known as the ‘golden hour’ and the ‘blue hour’. In this way, Hunter pays tribute to Turner and the many other artists that have worked here, inspired by the natural landscape and incredible light conditions.

Bettina von Zwehl: New Commission at the Queen's House until October 2019

BETTINA VON ZWEHL AT THE NEW-YORK HISTORICAL SOCIETY: 21 DECEMBER 2018 - 28 APRIL 2019

The New-York Historical Society’s first artist-in-residence, Bettina von Zwehl, presents new works inspired by her study of the Museum’s collection of American portrait miniatures and silhouettes, including profile drawings by Benjamin Tappan (1773–1857). The 17 silhouette portrait photographs—a silent memorial for those who lost their lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine’s Day 2018—serve as a catalyst to engage viewers with ideas of protest and teen activism.
