Alfreda Benge: P.L.A.

  • 7 February — 5 April 2015 *on now

SPACE is proud to present a retrospective exhibition of paintings, illustrations, collages and lyrics by Alfreda Benge (b. 1940).

Her first showing in a public institution, the exhibition explores Benge’s solo and collaborative work, in particular the fascinating creative partnership she shares with her husband, the musician Robert Wyatt (b. 1945).

P.L.A. takes its title from a track on Wyatt’s 1985 album Old Rottenhat.

Painted by Benge, the cover for this album opens the exhibition, one of a number of album artworks on show. These appear alongside a sequence of portraits depicting Wyatt alone and together with Benge, a tracklist of Wyatt’s songs featuring lyrics by Benge, and other items relating to their five decade long collaboration.
