London Side Effects on Art

London Side Effects on Art

London Calling. British Art today. From David Hockney to Idris Khan is constituted as the new exhibition of the Bancaja Foundation, opened for its visit until October 17, 2021. It gathers about fifty works from twenty London artists of great importance, covering the period from 1937 to 1978, some of them elaborated expressly on the occasion of the inauguration.


The presence of David Hockney, Michael Craig-Martin, Anish Kapoor, Cornelia Parker, Damien Hirst, Jason Martin and Idris Khan among others stands out. The aim of the exhibition is to show the evolution of the London art scene over the past five decades through different techniques: painting, sculpture, drawing, ceramics, photography, video, tapestries or digital media; using materials as diverse as cardboard, canvas, paper, steel, marble, leather and wax, among others.


Different themes meet around a dialogue that aims to highlight the presence of London in the contemporary art scene, constituted as one of the centres worldwide, with entities in the category of the Tate Modern, the Royal Academy of Arts or the Serpentine Gallery.


The common denominator stands as the influence that London has exerted on the artistic trajectory of all the authors participating in the exhibition, designating it as a fate linked to the present day, in the same way as other centers: Florence, Paris or New York were linked to the Renaissance, Impressionism or the second half of the 20th century, respectively.
