Camden Arts Centre announces highlights of its forthcoming programme for 2018/19, marking an exciting new chapter with Martin Clark joining as Director in September 2017.

2018 will see Italian painter Giorgio Griffa and American artist Sadie Benning each have their first UK solo exhibitions. Alongside Benning’s show, a carefully selected exhibition of works by the late artist, writer and curator Ian White will include the first re-presentations of a number of significant projects and performances. In the summer, Japanese artist Yuko Mohri, a previous artist-in-residence, will realise an ambitious installation in Gallery 3, alongside an exhibition of recent photographs by British artist Peter Fraser. In the autumn, American artist Amy Sillman will take over all three gallery spaces with a major exhibition of new and existing work. To launch the 2019 programme, London-based artist and filmmaker Beatrice Gibson will exhibit two new film commissions, alongside a curated programme of moving-image works, in a bespoke and highly activated social environment.  

Giorgio Griffa: A Continuous Becoming 
January 26–April 8, 2018 
Preview: 25 January

Abstract painter Giorgio Griffa (b. 1936, Turin, Italy), closely linked to the Arte Povera movement, first became known in the 1960s as part of an Italian generation of artists who sought to radically redefine painting. The exhibition will provide a rare opportunity to discover the breadth of the artist’s practice, incorporating works from the 1960s through to today. 

Sadie Benning: Sleep Rock 
April 19–June 24, 2018
Preview: April 18

New York-based artist Sadie Benning (b. 1973, Milwaukee, USA) works across performance, video installation, drawing, painting and wall sculpture. Sleep Rock will present an installation of all new wall-based works.  

Ian White: Any Frame is a Thrown Voice 
April 19–June 24, 2018
Curated by Kirsty Bell and Mike Sperlinger 
Preview: 18 April 

Ian White (1971–2013) was a highly influential artist, curator, writer and teacher who lived in London and Berlin. White’s solo and collaborative performances from 2002–2012 derived from his expanded approach to moving image and film as a live event. This exhibition will be a speculative thinking-aloud about White's practice, the future status of his works, and the challenge of presenting the work of a performer in their absence.  

Yuko Mohri
July 6–September 16, 2018 
Preview: July 5

Yuko Mohri (b. 1980, Kanagawa, Japan) returns to Camden Arts Centre with a new sculptural installation. During Mohri’s residency in 2016, she focused on the environment of the Artists’ Studio and Gallery 3, which include the original features of the former 19th century library. Her new installation will harness the architectural and acoustic characteristics of the gallery, animating the sculptural environment with music, ambient sound and atmospherics. 

Peter Fraser: Mathematics
July 6–September 16, 2018 
Preview: July 5

Peter Fraser (b. 1953, Cardiff, UK) presents Mathematics, a sequence of photographs made in locations including Istanbul, Norway and Sicily from 2011 to 2015. These works draw their energy from the idea that at the deepest level "reality is mathematical in nature." They extend Fraser’s more than 30 year investigation into the nature of images and the visible world, and his commitment to its exploration through photography as a practice. 

Amy Sillman
September 28, 2018-January 6, 2019 
Preview: September 27

Acclaimed American artist Amy Sillman (b. 1955, Detroit, USA) will present new and existing works for her first institutional exhibition in the UK. The exhibition will present the breadth of Sillman’s practice, encompassing drawing, painting, digital and silkscreen print processes, as well as video animation and zines. 

Beatrice Gibson
January 18–March 31, 2019 
Preview: January 17

Beatrice Gibson (b. 1978, London, UK) will present two new, interconnected films and an extended public programme inviting artists, writers, poets and other practitioners into the gallery spaces. Considering gender, poetry and disobedience as means to reckon with the present, Gibson has collaborated with two of America’s most significant living poets—CAConrad and Eileen Myles.
