Hannah Collins

  • 4 July — 13 September 2015

Hannah Collins is well known well for her large unframed photographs that cover whole walls, creating immersive spatial experiences. Her installations also extend to film and sound. Filling all of Camden Arts Centre’s galleries, the exhibition demonstrates Collins’ ability to convey the emotional aspects of space – across interiors, places of itinerancy and temporary inhabitation, sites of political significance as well as journeys into imaginative or unconscious realms.


Ben Rivers

  • 25 September — 29 November 2015

A major solo show by Ben Rivers, will bring together many of his works including previous seminal works and a series of new films. Alongside his solo show, Rivers will curate a group show based on the concept of ‘edgelands’. The exhibition will draw together a selection works that have inspired his interest in the borders of society, both physical spaces – often on the deserted peripheries of cities – and conceptually, where individuals are outside the mainstream culture.


Rose English

  • 11 December 2015 — 21 February 2016

An exhibition of work by Rose English, who emerged out of the UK’s vibrant and pioneering feminist, conceptual art and dance scenes of the 1970s. She has worked across numerous disciplines, contexts and under many different guises exploring performance, installation, theatre, dance and film. This exhibition will include new work produced for the exhibition within the vocabulary of her practice of the last 40 years.
