  • CARTES POSTALES, Jan Dziackowski

    Apr 11, 2017
    Perhaps best known as a painter and photographer, a significant part of Jan Dziaczkowski's practise centred around collage. Born in Warsaw, Poland in 1983, Jan started creating decoupage compositions from magazines from a very early age, working alongside his father. From then on he systematically collected clippings and photographs, creating a vast pictorial repository. Jan made the collages in a traditional manner, using scissors, razor blades and glue, working mostly...

  • Eugenia Martinez, ONLINE

    3 - 23 Dec 2016
    Eugenia Martinez has in recent years been interested specifically in painting and photography. Working with mexican portraits from the past, her work reflects the social cleavage between the public discourse of the different Mexican groups and their true thoughts. Selected areas of the piece are surrounded repeatedly and obssesively by words, creating an impenetrable halo of prejudice. Martinez creates exact and meticulous handwriting, words are written in different shades of...

  • PUNK

    20 Jul - 26 Aug 2016
    The Michael Hoppen Gallery is delighted to present PUNK, an exhibition of vintage press prints that document the rise of punk culture in 1970s Britain. Many of the prints included are suitably distressed, with an object quality and intensity that encapsulates the movement. The gallery was established twenty-four years ago on the Kings Road in Chelsea, an area that just over a decade earlier formed the epicentre of punk culture....

  • PASSING TIME, ONLINE EXHIBITION

    21 Jun - 1 Aug 2016
    These images explore life at leisure. From the thrills of high diving and swimming for oysters to moody scenes in bars and anonymous signers of the blues. Very little is known about each photograph and even the photographers themselves are often unknown. With the exact detail and context being elusive, one of the attractions of these images often lies in the projection of your own stories upon the characters captured....

  • Sammy Slabbinck, ONLINE

    1 Dec 2015 - 9 Jan 2016
    Sammy Slabbinck (born 1977, Belgium) creates dynamic surrealist contemporary collage reminisent of the great Jacques Prévert. Found magazine images are decontextualized and re-appropriated as Slabbinck plays with scale and juxtaposition. The context is often mid-Atlantic and mid-twentieth century and the images pay homage to the genius of the great 70's powerhouse of brain food that was Hipgnosis. Using humour as a visual tool Slabbinck choreographs compositions, meditating on the absurdity...

  • Rolling Stones Fans, Online Exhibition

    14 Apr - 21 Jun 2015
    In 1978 as the school year drew to a close, Bill Carraro and Chris Davies, two of my photography students, who also worked as editors for the yearbook, asked, “Mr.Szabo, would you like to go to a Rolling Stones concert? We have an extra ticket.” Being a lover of rock and roll, I was intrigued. But before I could even ask why, they said, “The only thing is, the concert...

  • Matt Henry, ONLINE Exhibition

    23 Feb - 21 Apr 2015
    'My personal practice focuses on America during the 1960s and 1970s. The works take the form of staged scenes constructed as set-builds in the UK using props sourced from here and the United States. The devout modernism of this period is a particular interest, with utopian political and cultural ideals heralding some of the great liberal successes of our time (the Civil Rights, feminist, anti-war and Free Speech movements). My...
