Dalston Barbers and Hair Salons
Ivan Sutherland’s photographic series, Barber Shops & Hair Salons of Dalston, explores the area’s diverse communities with an emphasis on how people influence their surroundings and are in turn influenced by them. Concerned with the effects of gentrification, Sutherland has sought to capture intimate spaces that contain vulnerability and ritual. The exhibition is in The North London Darkroom‘s new exhibition space, hosted by the White Rabbit Restaurant.
Until 25 September 2015, Rough print Gallery by White Rabbit and The North London Darkroom, Bradbury Street, Dalston, London N16.
In the spirit of place
To mark the 900th anniversary of the church of St Mary the Virgin, 19 artists have created site-specific works, with an emphasis on ceramic sculptures that range from the large-scale to small interventions nestling within the space. Inspired by the church’s history, the artists have also explored the atmosphere and heritage through video, photography, stained glass, printmaking and metalwork.
19-27 September 2015, St Mary the Virgin, Merton Park, London SW19.
Portrait of a Lady
Corinna Spencer’s first major solo exhibition in a public gallery comprises 1000 paintings that deal with notions of romantic love and obsession through portraiture. Historically referencing the unknown female sitter, this painting installation has been developed for Nottingham Castle’s South Hall stairwell and is a resulting commission from the Nottingham Castle Open Solo Show Prize in 2014.
19 September – 27 January 2016, Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery, Nottingham.
