Under the Influence: John Deakin and the Lure of Soho, explores the hidden corners and colourful characters of 1950s and early 60s London Soho, as seen through the eyes of John Deakin (1912 – 1972).
Considered to be one of the greatest postwar British photographers, Deakin was renowned for his penetrating portraits, haunting street scenes and striking fashion work. The exhibition includes rarely seen and un-shown works including portraits of the painters Lucian Freud, Frank Auerbach and Francis Bacon. It also includes the writers Dylan Thomas, Daniel Farson and Jeffrey Bernard, the celebrated beauty and artist’s model Henrietta Moraes and Muriel Belcher, proprietor of the fabled drinking den The Colony Room.
From radical innovations in the use of colour and form to new materials like neon and interactive, kinetic sculpture, this exhibition reveals some of the most original art of the last 100 years.
The time: 1930s. The place: South America. The stage was set for a major innovation in art. Over the next 50 years, artists across five cities would pioneer a new visual language to express their deeply held beliefs about art and its power to change the world around them.
Radical Geometry brings together work from the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros by some of the great innovators of South American modern art, from Torres-García in Uruguay to Lygia Clark in Brazil, from Maldonado in Argentina to Gego in Venezuela. Inspired by European artists such as Mondrian and Kandinsky, their bold experiments with space, movement and colour radically transformed the relationship between art and viewer.
