The Missing One / OCA (Office for Contemporary Art Norway)

David Alesworth / studio 108.2
Thursday 27 October 2016 – Sunday 15 January 2017

Curated by Nada Raza 
'The Missing One' is an intergenerational exhibition assembling artworks 
from across Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Taking the tropes 
and technologies of science fiction as a thematic beginning, the 
exhibition’s perspectives are guided by a 1920s painting by Gaganendranath
Tagore referencing the 1896’s science fiction story The Missing One by 
J.C. Bose.

Towards Night / Towner Art Gallery Eastbourne

Emma Stibbon / Studio 

24 Sept - 22nd Jan

Towner Art Gallery, Eastbourne

Towards Night juxtaposes key paintings and prints by Constable,    
Friedrich, Munch, Nolde, Palmer and Turner, some of the best known 
visionaries of the Romantic tradition with contemporary artists who 
work with the transformative aspects of nightfall to convey emotional 
responses of awe, anxiety and solitude, love and loss, revelry, 
insomnia, and journey’s end. 

As the exhibition progresses, the dystopias become darker and more 
disturbing, and the connections between artists and works intensify: 
Emma Stibbon’s Rome Aqueduct (2011) takes on a heightened sense of 
pathos alongside Caspar David Friedrich’s Winter Landscape (1811); 
Peter Doig’s cinematic Echo Lake (1998) conjures up an increased sense
 of contemporary angst; and Prunella Clough’s False Flower (1993), a 
magical tree defying brutalism by growing out of concrete, becomes 
more miraculous near Night Shift (2015) Nick Carrick’s tomblike high
