David Jablonowski's work which investigates the history and potential of communication in visual culture. His sculptures, films and installations explore cultural aesthetics, display systems and information transfer, from calligraphic manuscripts to TV advertising and the World Wide Web.
The work of Marcin Maciejowski (born Babice, Poland in 1974) re-presents everyday images of our time. Using those already in popular circulation as starting points - found photographs, movies, posters, newspaper illustrations - his paintings naturally inherit the social and political implications of their source material.
The Rinse Cycle is the first ever full-scale survey of Jim Shaw’s work internationally and will bring together more than one hundred paintings, sculptures, drawings and videos from the last twenty-five years.
