Jimmy Nelson: Private View
LONDON  •  Atlas Gallery  •  18 September - 27 October 2018
 
The latest photographs by Jimmy Nelson celebrating the strength and beauty of remote indigenous cultures are being presented at Atlas Gallery in London this month, in advance of the publication in October of his new book, Jimmy Nelson: Homage to Humanity. And, for the first time, visitors will be able to meet some of Nelson’s subjects through his innovative and immersive ‘360’ films. In both the exhibition and the book, Jimmy Nelson: Homage to Humanity, the British-born photographer pays tribute to thirty-four communities he encountered while travelling across five continents, from the Sharchop in the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan to the Mundari in South Sudan.

Kerry James Marshall: History of Painting
LONDON  •  David Zwirner  •  3 October - 10 November 2018
 

This is the American artist’s first exhibition of new work since his critically acclaimed retrospective, Mastry, and his second solo presentation with the David Zwirner gallery.

Through its formal acuity, Kerry James Marshall’s (b. 1955) work reveals and questions the social constructs of beauty, taste, and power. As the artist has written, "I gave up on the idea of making Art a long time ago, because I wanted to know how to make paintings; but once I came to know that, reconsidering the question of what Art is returned as a critical issue."1 Engaged in an ongoing dialogue with six centuries of representational painting, Marshall has deftly reinterpreted and updated its tropes, compositions, and styles, even pulling talismans from the canvases of his forebearers and recontextualizing them within a modern setting. At the center of his prodigious oeuvre, which also includes drawings and sculpture, is the critical recognition of the conditions of invisibility so long ascribed to black bodies in the Western pictorial tradition, and the creation of what he calls a "counter-archive" that reinscribes these figures within its narrative arc.

A fully illustrated catalogue, including new scholarship by Teju Cole and others, is forthcoming from David Zwirner Books.

Fire and Fury
Birmingham Royal Ballet

Journey back to the origins of ballet in The King Dances, and glimpse the kindling of its future when David Bintley reimagines ballet’s first searing steps, taken by King Louis XIV of France as he danced the role of the sun god.

In his new work for the company, Juanjo Arqués draws inspiration from Turner’s The Burning of the House of Lords and Commons in a ballet that looks at contemporary political conflict.
