Allen Jones RA:<EM>Body Armour</EM>, 2013.
Allen Jones RA:Body Armour, 2013.
Allen Jones RA
LONDON, ENGLAND  •  Royal Academy of Arts  •  13 November 2014 - 25 January 2015
 

The Royal Academy of Arts is presenting the first major exhibition of Allen Jonesí work in the UK since 1995, one of Britain's most influential and celebrated living Pop artists. Allen Jones RA spans the artistís entire career from the 1960s to the present. Comprising over 80 works, the exhibition features examples of Jonesí paintings and sculpture, including the iconic furniture works from the late 60s, and new works created especially for this exhibition.

The exhibition places a focus on Jonesí sculptural depictions of the female figure, featuring perhaps his most famous and controversial works Hat Stand (1969), Table (1969) and Chair (1969), but also more recent examples, such as Refrigerator (2002) and Light (2002). As a retrospective survey, Allen Jones RA traces Jonesí development as an artist. The selection of paintings explores how the early influences of European painting traditions, seen in Bikini Baby (1962) and Hermaphrodite (1963), gave way to the influence of Abstract Expressionism. Jones made frequent and prolonged visits to America where he came to admire the pictorial innovations of his contemporaries Roy Lichtenstein and Tom Wesselmann in New York, and Ed Ruscha and Mel Ramos on the West Coast, with this inspiration clearly visible in First Step (1966).

Giovanni Battista Moroni
LONDON, ENGLAND  •  Royal Academy of Arts  •  25 October 2014 - 25 January 2015
 

Giovanni Battista Moroni was one of the greatest portraitists of 16th-century Italy. Famed for his gift for capturing the exact likeness of his sitters, he created portraits that are as penetrating and powerful now as they were more than 400 years ago.

Moroniís portraits depict the people of the world and time in which he lived, from elegant men and women of high society shown in glittering dress to members of the middle class engaged in their trade. One such work is The Tailor, as highly praised in its time as it is now. What all of his works share is a startling naturalism and vitality, rarely matched by other artists of the period and anticipating the realistic style of Caravaggio and, later, Manet.

Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman: Assassins
Directed by Jamie Lloyd

In this musical, thirteen people have tried to kill the president of the United States. Four have succeeded. These murderers and would-be murderers are generally dismissed as maniacs and misfits who have little in common with each other, and nothing in common with the rest of us.

Assassins suggests otherwise...
