Alan Wheatley Art

Celebrating Alan Davie

Heralding the appointment of Alan Wheatley Art as sole representative of the Estate of Alan Davie, this exhibition presents a selection of previously unseen paintings. 

Closing 30 January

taubert contemporary

MUTTER & GENTH – Trusted surfaces 

Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth explore technically produced surfaces and system components (such as car headlights) and their cultural – psychological anchoring in our perception. 

Closing 3 February


Like the Lines of a Hand

18 UK-based artists respond to the novel Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino, published in Italy in 1972 and the resulting works often reference and play with the complexities of inventive language and narrative explored in the book. 

The artists were chosen by PAPER and C4RD in London where the exhibition is held.  

Closing 8 February

New Art Projects

Threesome and 3X3

Both exhibitions offer differing notions of queer identity and invite aesthetic and ideological scrutiny. In Threesome painters Sadie LeeRoxana Halls and Sarah Jane Moon offer arresting interpretations of the ‘female gaze’. 3×3 will showcase self-portraits by nine queer female artists, whose work interrogates the notion of the female gaze and self-identity. 

Closing 4 March
