Alys Tomlinson: Ex-Voto | 7th March – 18th April 2019

Untitled 06-Ex Voto-Alys Tomlinson

In Ex-Voto Alys Tomlinson explores Christian pilgrimage sites in Lourdes in France, Ballyvourney in Ireland and Grabarka in Poland. Shot on a large format 5×4 film camera, the works evoke a stillness and reflect the mysterious, timeless quality present at these sites of great contemplation.

This exhibition coincides with the release of “Ex-Voto”, published by GOST Books with essays by Guardian writer Sean O’Hagan, Professor John Eade, University of Roehampton and Dr Rowan Cerys Tomlinson. Works from Ex-Voto will be on view at Side Gallery, Newcastle and with the Royal Photographic Society touring exhibition which opens first in Bristol.

Oli Kellett: Cross Road Blues
16th November 2018 – 23rd February 2019

PeachTree St Atlanta - HackelBury Fine Art

HackelBury Fine Art is pleased to announce British artist Oli Kellett’s first solo exhibition, Cross Road Blues, 16 November 2018 – 23 February 2019. This exhibition presents large-scale photographs from Kellett’s on-going Cross Road Blues series taken at urban intersections across America.

The series borrows its title from the legendary blues song by Robert Johnson which some claim is a reference to the singer selling his soul to the devil at a Mississippi Delta crossroads. The mythology surrounding Johnson’s song can be interpreted as a cautionary tale of the price paid for the American Dream, and Kellett’s allusion to it leaves the viewer wondering if the figures in his photographs chose their souls or their dreams at their crossroads.

The individuals and small clusters of people waiting in Kellett’s photographs seem to be part of a film set, strangely isolated in typically bustling urban centres and surrounded with cinematographic lighting. Like a film, each person tells a unique story about their American experience. One man waits for a passing school bus before crossing the street with a cast on his right foot (PeachTree St, Atlanta). A family stands together near the corner of the street (Hubbard St, Chicago), possibly deciding whether to walk or take the nearby stairs up to the train. Taken as a whole, the series shows commonalities that all humans share: waiting, thinking, deciding which way to go.

Stockton St, San Francisco - HackelBury Fine Art

Oli Kellett & Nigel Warburton in conversation
Saturday 9th Feb  11:00 - 13:00

Renowned British philosopher, author, and broadcaster Nigel Warburton was in conversation with photographer Oli Kellett at HackelBury Fine Art. They discussed how the Cross Road Blues series started and how it has evolved.

Oli's incredible large format Cross Road Blues photographs capture individuals in the American urban landscape. Working only with available natural light, Oli patiently waits until people, place and light all fall into place. These seemingly calm moments have a stillness that reimagine the city as a place of tranquillity and solitude.

Alchemy: Garry Fabian Miller, Pierre Cordier and Nadezda Nikolova-Kratzer | 12th October – 9th November 2018

Alchemy artworks - Garry Fabian Miller - Pierre Cordier - Nadezda Nikolova-Kratzer

Alchemy presents three generations of camera-less photography: Pierre Cordier made his first chemigram in 1956, Garry Fabian Miller began his darkroom era in 1984, and Nadezda Nikolova-Kratzer is making her London gallery debut with this exhibition. Just as alchemists experiment in both chemistry and spirituality, these artists deeply consider the chemical and physical properties of their mediums while simultaneously meditating on the human condition, giving form and concept equal weight.

Malick Sidibé: Look At Me | 12th September – 6th October 2018

Malick Sidibé Look at me black and white photograph Malick Sidibé: Look At Me is on view at HackelBury Fine Art, 12th September – 6th October, 2018. This exhibition is one of a series of exhibitions, events, and talks celebrating HackelBury’s twentieth anniversary. HackelBury presented Sidibé’s first solo gallery exhibition in London in 2002, marking a significant point in both the gallery’s and the artist’s exhibition history. Read more/less

Representing the full range of Sidibé’s artistic practise, this exhibition includes studio portraiture, nightlife photography, and representations of daily life in post-independence Bamako, Mali. In A Ye-ye posing, 1963 Sidibé captures a young man posing with sunglasses and bell-bottom trousers, showing his engagement with ye-ye pop music that was taking off in Europe at the time. As a whole, these photographs present 1960s and 1970s Bamako as a lively, cosmopolitan centre where youth asserted their presence as active participants in a globalised world.In 2003 Sidibé was awarded the prestigious Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography. He was the first photographer to be awarded the Lion d’Or for Lifetime Achievement at the Venice Biennale in 2007. Sidibé was given the Lifetime Achievement Award by the International Center for Photography, New York in 2009. A major retropective of his work took place at the Fondation Cartier in 2017. Sidibé is regarded as one of the most influential West African photographers of his time. All works in this exhibition were printed from the original negative in Malick Sidibé’s lifetime and are signed by the artist.

William Klein: Fashion + Light | 9th March – 2nd June 2018

William Klein: Fashion + Light is on view at HackelBury Fine Art, 9th March – 2nd June, 2018. This stunning studio work was originally created for Vogue Magazine in 1962 and has only recently been fully rediscovered. Read more/less

Klein started making abstract light images from 1952. On the strength of this work, Alexander Liberman invited him to join Condé Nast in 1954. With an assured income from Condé Nast, Klein was able to embark on a personal project of street photography which he published in 1956 as Life is Good and Good for You in New York. That same year, Vogue Magazine printed several of his most iconic fashion images. In 1962 Klein combined his fashion photography with the light abstraction techniques he had pioneered a decade earlier. In 2015 HackelBury persuaded Klein to revisit this body of work and he agreed to release it for the first time.
