Dulwich Picture Gallery – September events

Exhibitions & Displays Ribera: Art of Violence 26 September 2018 – 27 January 2019 Ribera: Art of Violence will be the first UK show of work by the Spanish Baroque artist and printmaker, Jusepe de Ribera (1591-1652), bringing together his most sensational, shocking and masterfully composed work. This exhibition will explore for the first time the theme of violence in Ribera’s work to demonstrate how his images are neither the product of his supposed sadism nor the expression of a purely aesthetic interest, but rather involve a complex artistic, religious and cultural engagement in the depiction of bodily suffering – challenging visitors to look beyond the shocking imagery.

An Exhibition by South London Women Artists

Over 20 female artists have their say on a blank canvas on the subject of coercive control and sexual abuse. The canvases are assembled into billboards, to create a ‘wall of unity’. Traditionally used for advertising, often objectifying women, the billboards serve as a reclaimed space where the female voice can be heard. The look of the billboards will depend entirely on the artists and their interpretation of the brief, making this exhibition truly exciting. The ‘Weinstein Ripple Effect’ and campaigns such as ‘Me Too’ have raised public awareness of sexual abuse and encouraged open conversation. Abuse can be subtle, coercive and manipulative or it can be overt, violent and explosive. It can be shrouded in silence and hidden within plain sight, or can erupt into our awareness through news stories and scandals. How do we change the culture of victim blaming and what can be done to end violence against women? The idea for using billboards references, SaveArtSpace:The Future is Female, The Guerrilla Girls, and ideas explored in the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. …

Dulwich Festival Artists’ Open House

This year’s Dulwich Festival Artists’ Open House will take place over the weekends of 12-13 and 19-20 May, 11-6pm. Over 250 South London-based artists will open their homes and studios, giving the public an opportunity to view their work and talk to the makers about their creative processes. This year’s artists will represent a huge range of styles and disciplines, ranging from painting, photography and illustration to ceramics, jewellery, textiles and model dioramas, many in the intimate setting of their own homes and studios. The Festival’s Artists’ Open House is also an opportunity to discover a diverse range of hidden creative communities within your own local neighbourhood; from industrial warehouses in Peckham, to grand manor houses in Dulwich. Tucked away behind the busy thoroughfare of Forest Hill, Havelock Mews is a charming cobbled street with a delightfully incongruous mix of buildings. Wander through the studios, chat with the artists and designers; relax in the sunshine as you take in a live music set or sample some street food. Or why not head over to Copeland …
