White Cube Bermondsey presents the first European solo exhibition by Harmony Hammond (b.1944, Chicago). The American artist, curator, author and activist was a pivotal figure of the feminist art movement in New York, co-founding in 1972, A.I.R., the first women’s cooperative art gallery in the city, and the journal Heresies: A Feminist Publication on Art and Politics in 1977. Hammond’s earliest feminist work combined gender politics with Post-Minimalist concerns for material and process, frequently occupying a space between painting and sculpture – a focus that continues to this day.
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.

‘The Real: Three Propositions’ presents paintings and drawings by Peter Dreher, Konrad Klapheck and Des Lawrence, all of whom use precise, figurative styles to depict people, places and things. These artists merge realms of appearance and consciousness to varying degrees in their work, intermixing objectivity and subjectivity as they conjure things and their meanings in two dimensions. At a time when images and information, factual and fictional, circulate instantaneously, they ask the viewer to slow down and to consider how matter and mind intertwine when the world is re-envisioned.

White Cube Bermondsey presents Sarah Morris’s first solo show in the UK in six years; Machines do not make us into Machines. Featuring paintings, films, a site-specific wall painting as well as the artist’s first sculptural work, the exhibition reflects Morris’s interest in networks, typologies, architecture, language and the city. Employing an architecture of colourful and abstract forms, Morris’s paintings play on the viewer’s sense of visual recognition. She incorporates a wide range of references, from the graphic identity of multinational corporations and the structure of urban transport systems to the iconography of maps, GPS technology, as well as the movement of people within urban areas.

Doris Salcedo is the latest artist to exhibit at White Cube Bermondsey. The exhibition reflects Salcedo’s continued focus on the experience of mourning and the connection between violence, anonymity and public space. ‘The experience of an individual is always my point of departure. But during the process of making an artwork, I must maintain a distance in order to leave that person intact, untouched. And from there, as soon as I begin working, everything enters into the paradoxical terrain of art.’ In her work Salcedo questions and exposes trauma by exploring its capacity to reveal and connect with grief, carving out a space for mourning that is both poignant and insistent. ‘My work is about the memory of experience, which is always vanishing, not about experiences taken from life’, she has said. The exhibition is open from 28th September – 11th November 2018.
