‘Who What When Where How and Why' - 23rd Nov 2016 – 19th March 2017
Newport Street Gallery will host the first major solo exhibition of work by British artist Gavin Turk since 2002.
Spanning almost three decades, ‘Who What When Where How and Why’will showcase works from throughout the artist’s career, many exhibited together for the first time.
Turk’s work focuses on the anti-hero, the recycling of art history, waste and refuse, the signature and the painted bronze. Tracing his early interest authorship, identity and the artist, the show features Cave, the now iconic blue plaque installation that was exhibited in Turk’s Royal College of Art degree show in 1991. Works from the artist’s Signature series also feature alongside four life-sized figure sculptures, as well as painted bronze Rubbish pieces. Other highlights include Turk’s re-imagining of Warhol’s Elvis screen prints, his ‘recycled’ Magritte self-portrait, Godot (1996), and the bronze Ariadne (2006–2014), which is based on de Chirico’s series of paintings of the statue.
Hirst first saw Turk’s work at his Royal College degree show in 1991 and began acquiring his work in 1998.
On the occasion of the exhibition, Turk said, “It is a massive compliment to have Damien as an artist, collect my work on this scale, with such intelligence and then show it to the public in this beautiful new gallery."
Hirst stated, “I started collecting Gavin’s work twenty years ago. He’s an incredibly powerful artist, his work is about language and the spaces between things – about identity and being somebody and nobody, he plays with our preconceptions of what’s there and not there, of what art is and how it functions. He’s had a major impact on British art so it’s great to be able to show such an extensive collection of his work at Newport Street.”

Ann-Marie James: ALCHEMY
Alchemy is an exhibition of beautiful contemporary artworks by Ann-Marie James.
Wessex Museums invited Ann-Marie James to delve into the collections of their four partner museums (Wiltshire Museum, Dorset County Museum, Poole Museum and The Salisbury Museum) and choose an object from each to inspire a series of artworks.
She spent a year creating the finished pieces, all in gold or white. Gold derives from the Bush Barrow Lozenge (Wiltshire Museum) and the tale of Bacchus and Midas (Poole Museum); white from the chalk that the Amesbury Archer (The Salisbury Museum) was originally found in, and the white of the Roman mosaic (Dorset County Museum).
Her techniques included drawing, painting, printmaking and gilding with 24ct gold leaf.
