Love is Enough: William Morris & Andy Warhol
- 6 December 2014 — 8 March 2015 *on now
Love is Enough draws together iconic and rarely seen works by two giants of the 19th and 20th centuries. This unconventional combination of artists’ work is curated by Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller who cites Morris and Warhol as his two greatest artistic influences.
Deller draws many surprising connections between these two artists who left an indelible mark on their generations and arguably those that followed. Morris and Warhol both established printmaking businesses and distributed their work through new forms of mass production.
Works sourced from public and private collections across the UK and the USA include a panel from the epic and rarely seen Holy Grail tapestry series completed by William Morris in 1896. Alongside will be shown a selection of Warhol’s iconic silkscreens and archival material.
Inventory of the Objects Belonging to A Young Man in Oxford: Christian Boltanski
- 20 December 2014 — 22 February 2015 *on now
This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to see a significant early conceptual work by Christian Boltanski.
Under Boltanski’s instructions, Peter Ibsen, former Director of Modern Art Oxford, photographed all the belongings of a typical resident of the city.
The presentation of these photographs – in Oxford for the first time since 1973 – forms and ongoing series of exhibitions that mine Modern Art Oxford’s distinguished history in the lead up to the gallery’s 50th anniversary in 2016.
