Spellbound - 29 November to 22
Vintage photographs paying homage to the cult of celebrity created by the
press photographers of the fifties and sixties. These are the very prints used
for reproduction in the newspapers and magazines of the period and feature rare
images of Marilyn Munroe, Frank Sinatra, Steve MacQueen, Jean Seberg, Marlene
Deitrich, Ava Gardner, Sean Connery and many more.
Ruth Orkin - January 2002 (dates tbc)
images of New York, Hollywood and Europe taken in the 1940s, 50s and 60s by Ruth
Orkin, daughter of the silent movie star, Mary Ruby, sometime filmmaker and
legendary LIFE photographer. Despite worldwide acclaim she remains little known
in this country and this is the first show show of her work in the UK.
Denis Doran - February 2002 (dates tbc)
Elegiac and fragmented
images concerning a childhood landscape reflected and refracted through the
artist's relationship with his two sons. A boys' story of sorts, but one rooted
in geographical and cultural migration.
