Opening day: ‘Lee Lozano’

Fri 2 Oct 2020, 2 – 8 pm

Somerset

We are pleased to invite you to the opening of ‘Lee Lozano’. This exhibition presents a significant body of early work by the pioneering New York-based artist. Created in 1962–1963, the paintings and drawings of this series use airplanes as a central image and can be considered as examples of the artist’s passionate exploration of creative energy in its purist form.

Lozano’s works from the early 1960s are stylistically distinct, admired for their furious physicality, unapologetic confidence and urgent energy. They exploit the boundaries between body and machine, eroticism and aggression, to powerful effect. A passionate and shrewd observer of urban culture, Lozano created work in response to the constraints imposed by systems constituted via dynamics of gender, power, money, politics, and institutions such as marriage and maternity.

Tickets include entry to both of our autumn exhibitions: ‘Nicole Eisenman. Where I Was, It Shall Be’ and ‘Lee Lozano’. Oudolf Field will remain open until 8 pm for visitors to enjoy and Roth Bar & Grill will be open for drinks. To make a reservation for the restaurant visit: www.rothbarandgrill.co.uk

In order to provide a safe and positive experience for all visitors, we have reduced the number of visitors we can accommodate at one time and introduced a one way system. We ask that you arrive within 10 minutes of your booking and do not bring any additional guests that have not also booked in advance. Please continue to follow government guidance on social distancing when on site. Visitors will be required to wear a face covering over the nose and mouth when in the buildings.
