02/12/16 | BAILEY: NW1

nw1

David Bailey had lived in Primrose Hill and Camden for nearly 30 years when he decided to capture the shuttered cinemas, boarded railway arches, crumbling Victorian facades, dormant car parks and advertising hoardings before they disappeared from view entirely. In 1982, when NW1 was first published, it reflected an already vanishing landscape: viewed now, Bailey’s photographs are even more portentous and poignant.

Gone is the history to be replaced with glass and steel, family businesses replaced by chain fashion stores and coffee shops.

“Put yourself in any one of the pictures of NW1 and you’re right there. Your ghosts can get to meet Bailey’s ghosts…. Bailey lived there, and loved it, and in the pictures, he’s saying what he thinks. It isn’t what it was; but it’s freighted with that, and it will be something again.”
— Francis Hodgson

This elegant and newly designed edition is signed by the artist, hand-numbered and limited to 1,000 copies. It includes an image exclusive to the edition alongside an originally commissioned text by Francis Hodgson, former photography critic for the Financial Times.

The book is published to coincide with the book’s eponymous exhibition at HENI, 6-10 Lexington Street, London W1F 0LB which runs from 02 December 2016–31 January 2017

It’s opening coincides with the release of a new monograph of Clarke’s work published by HENI Publishing. Introduced by an exclusive interview between renowned American critic Robert Storr and Clarke, Night Orchids is an elegant monograph of 267 of these works— varying from delicate white line drawings on black card to vivid bursts of watercolour— and each contributing to an apparently endless sequence of questions about the nature of beauty and the void in which it flourishes.

HENI and Pace London is delighted to announce Enclave, an exhibition of new paintings by Jonathan Wateridge. The exhibition will be on view at HENI, 6-10 Lexington Street, from 14 October to 13 November 2016. | Open Mon–Sat, 10am–6pm.

PRIVATE VIEW — Thursday 13 October 2016 — 6–8pm


In his first exhibition with Pace London and HENI, Wateridge presents his most expressive and personal body of work to date. As a starting point for the series, the artist constructed a large scale set of his childhood garden in Zambia and then worked with actors to develop the imagery for his paintings. Enclosed in an apparent world of poolside suburban sunshine, Enclave points to a protected yet fictionalised space that references both the artist’s childhood memories of a lost past juxtaposed with the wider issues of the West’s role in our post-colonial world.

Tweet-Card-A

Published globally by The Estate of Francis Bacon on 30th June 2016, Francis Bacon: Catalogue Raisonné is a landmark publishing event that presents the entire oeuvre of Bacon’s paintings for the first time and includes over 100 previously unpublished works. The impeccably produced five-volume, slipcased publication, containing each of Bacon’s 584 paintings, has been edited by Martin Harrison, FSA, the pre-eminent expert on Bacon’s work, alongside research assistant Dr Rebecca Daniels. An ambitious and painstaking project that has been ten years in the making, this seminal visual document eclipses in scope any previous publication on the artist and will have a profound effect on the perception of his work.

The catalogue contains around 800 illustrations across 1,538 pages within five cloth- bound hardcover volumes and is priced at £1,000 | $1,500 | €1,400. The three volumes that make up the study of Bacon’s entire painting oeuvre are bookended by two further volumes: the former including an introduction and a chronology, and the latter a catalogue of Bacon’s sketches, an index, and a bibliography compiled by Krzysztof Cieszkowski. Printed on 170 gsm GardaMatt Ultra stock in Bergamo, Italy at Castelli Bolis, the five volumes of Francis Bacon: Catalogue Raisonné are boxed within a cloth- bound slipcase, and supplied within a bespoke protective shipping carton.
