Anj Smith at The New Art Gallery Walsall
Zabludowicz Collection in collaboration with Tamares Real Estate Holdings, Inc. are delighted to announce the loan of Anj Smith's painting, Landscape with Lagerstätte, 2017 to The New Art Gallery Walsall.
A Willow Grows Aslant the Brook, offers the opportunity to view a significant body of work together, showcasing the fine intricacies and detail in both Smith's paintings and narratives. Comprising of 23 paintings and prints, this exhibition will be the largest presentation of the artist’s work in a UK public gallery to date.
The title of the exhibition references Shakespeare’s Hamlet and specifically the site of Ophelia’s retreat and eventual death. Despite being silent or off-stage for much of the play, Ophelia’s agency is crucial. For the artist, Ophelia has come to epitomise a type of silencing, in her thwarted attempts to be heard.
The exhibition will be on view until the 5th September 2021. More information about the exhibition and events can be found on The New Art Gallery Walsall's website.
