Abstract or Description:

This exhibition brings together a number of art historical works by Tacita Dean, Jeremy Millar and Nashashibi/ Skaer (Rosalind Nashashibi and Lucy Skaer). Each of these works revisits, restages, or refers to a celebrated moment in art history by recalling older works by Robert Smithson, Albrecht Dürer, Aby Warburg, and Paul Nash. The exhibition introduces what the curator Kirstie North has called a new ‘art historical turn’ operating in contemporary art practice, drawing from her PhD thesis on this theme completed in 2016. This research argued that the recent revival of interest in art historical representation, combined with a preference for analogue mediums, is symptomatic of a problematic relationship with digital technology — especially as it relates to memory, art historical memory, and artists’ mediums. In various ways each work in the exhibition deals with loss and lost time through absent art objects, almost obsolete mediums, and outmoded methods of display.
