Gail Brodholt is a voracious reader, constantly inspired by the written word. Her stunning linocuts—often depicting the London Underground, train stations, and other scenes of transport—obtain their titles from pieces of poetry or prose that have touched her in some way. This exhibition at Eames Fine Art Gallery coincides with a prestigious project that Gail has been working on with London Transport. She was commissioned to produce prints for two posters to support their initiative ‘Hidden London,’ which aims to open up the secrets of disused parts of the London Underground network. Gail was asked to feature two stations: The Strand / Aldwych station and the Highgate High Level station. Both of these striking posters will be displayed throughout London early 2020. Find out more.

This is the first presentation of Mona Hatoum’s work in London since Tate Modern in 2016. The exhibition includes new and recent installation, sculpture and works on paper. Hatoum’s work reflects on subjects that arise from our current global condition, including systems of confinement, the architecture of surveillance and themes of mobility and conflict. Channelling the poetic charge and metaphoric resonance of a wide range of materials from steel, brick and concrete, to rubble, glass and human hair, in this exhibition she explores the elemental forms of the grid and the sphere, drawing on both the geometric rigour of Minimalist sculpture and the possibilities for its formal collapse.
