Turner Contemporary, Kent

7.2 – 3.5.2020

Opening 6.2.2020, 18 – 20h, Speeches 18.30

 

The exhibition is curated by Hannah Collins and Paul Goodwin with Turner Contemporary.

 

From 7 February 2020, Turner Contemporary will showcase the work of artists and makers from the Alabama and surrounding states in We Will Walk – Art and Resistance in the American South.

We Will Walk – Art and Resistance in the American South is the first exhibition of its kind in the UK and reveals a little-known history shaped by the Civil Rights period in the 1950s and 60s.

It will bring together sculptural assemblages, paintings and quilts by more than 20 African American artists from Alabama and surrounding states. The artists represented in the exhibition lived through the Civil Rights struggle and its aftermath, often in conditions of poverty.  This art is characterised by the remaking and reuse of materials through necessity, custom, culture and innovation as well as a vital connection to place and nature.The exhibition also features Civil Rights music and documentary photographs that reveal the links between the art and its context.

Some works are in direct dialogue with this era of protest, while others evidence the longstanding impact of segregation and racial terror. Produced from the mid-20th century to the present, many of the artworks will be coming to Europe for the first time. In an era of worldwide protest on the streets, We Will Walk addresses issues of race, class and resistance through a diverse range of works developed outside of the mainstream.

Much of the work in We Will Walk draws on the tradition of the ‘Yard Show’, temporary outdoor environments made from salvaged materials. This includes the root sculptures of Bessie Harvey and Emmer Sewell’s iconic sculpture created outside her home in Marion County. The exhibition will see a series of quilts from the isolated hamlet of Gee’s Bend (known today as Boykin) in Alabama go on display in the UK for the first time. These world-famous quilts have a distinctive style, and are often made from recycling old clothing such as blue jeans. The exhibition also features guitars by Freeman Vines, including one made from the wood of an old hanging tree.  These artists turned impossible circumstances into innovative artworks.

This presentation brings together still photography and an immersive video installation exploring the work of Egyptian Modernist architect Hassan Fathy. Searching for models that might address the urgent contemporary problems of housing, poverty, and environmental sustainability, Collins reconsiders Fathy’s mid-twentieth-century utopian experiments in sustainable architecture and rural community building at New Gourna and New Baris in Egypt.

 

Her installation underscores the visual and philosophical connections between the ancient Egyptian structures and Fathy’s historically grounded, forward-looking designs, and prompts us to meditate on the past as well as contemplate new solutions for the future.

HANNAH COLLINS

EPCC Ecole Superieure des Beaux-Arts, Le Mans

17.11 – 16.12.2016

 

 

En 2016, après d’importantes expositions en Allemagne et en Grande Bretagne (Sprengel Museum à Hannovre, Camden Art Center à Londres et Baltic Center for Contemporary Art de Newcastle), Hannah Collins présente son œuvre photographique à l’École supérieure des beaux-arts TALM – Le Mans.

 

L’œuvre de l’artiste photographe et réalisatrice anglaise, Hannah Collins, est apparue sur la scène artistique internationale au milieu des années 80. Ses œuvres se présentent la plupart du temps comme de larges panoramiques d’espaces vides, de paysages naturels ou urbains. Intéressée par l’architecture, cette dernière occupe une place prépondérante dans son travail et cristallise l’un des sujets de prédilection de l’artiste : explorer les relations entre intérieur et extérieur, entre histoire personnelle et environnement socio-culturel.
