About Graham Crowley

Graham Crowley is one of the most distinguished living painters in the UK today. Born in 1950, Graham Crowley studied at St. Martin’s School of Art London 1968-72 and Royal College of Art London 1972-75, and has held significant teaching posts including Professor of Painting at the RCA (1998-2006) In April 2008 Graham Crowley had a letter published in Art Monthly ‘Can’t get No Satisfaction’ in which he expressed his concerns about the state of art education in London.

His letter precipitated a national debate both in Art Monthly and the wider art world. His paintings span a vast variance in style from the approprationist art of the 70s to his brilliantly luminous landscapes of the present day, tracking a fundamental narrative with political, cultural and personal histories within them.

Crowley was a judge on the 25 John Moores panel in 2008. As an applicant he has exhibited eight times, winning prizes in 1987 and 2006.

Altar, Frauke Dannert

Core Gallery is delighted to present 'The Eighteenth Emergency', an exhibition that brings together the work of international artists. All of the artists are current Goldsmiths MFA graduates and already have established careers in the art world. The exhibition is curated by Andrew Bryant, Artist, writer and editor of Artist’s Talking, a-n.

‘The Eighteenth Emergency’ is an exhibition of photography, sculpture, installation and video which explores the many issues surrounding masculinity; addressing the violent and aggressive dimensions of male identity.

The show will be accompanied with an Artist & Curators Talk with Andrew Bryant on 4th September.


In Betsy Byers’ The Eighteenth Emergency, a short novel for boys, Mouse and his best friend Ezzie have come up with 17 action plans for various types of emergency, such as Attack by an Unfriendly Lion. But nothing has prepared them for the 18th emergency: being on the wrong side of Marv Hammerman, every eighth-grader's worst nightmare.

However the real emergency is masculinity itself, something that, in a sexist society such as ours, for which gendered subjectivity is foundational, we are all on the ‘wrong’ side of.

Taking its name from Byers’ book, the exhibition Eighteenth Emergency brings together five artists whose work addresses the violence and aggression, either actual, or implied, inherent in taking up a position in relation to, or within, masculinity.

MONOCHROME SET

8th- 18th October

Patrick Morrissey and Clive Hancock

This show is the culmination of a collaborative exercise between Patrick Morrissey and Clive (Hanz) Hancock.

Patrick Morrissey’s work represents elements of his practice initiated whilst studying for his degree at Goldsmiths College. Broadly speaking, Morrissey is utilizing ‘systems’ which are basically geometric/ numeric and ultimately tangential.

This work has sympathy with the neo-concrete/neo constuctivist methodology of the late 20th century, expounded by the likes of Kenneth Martin, Jose Patricio, and others. The title of the show is intended to bind the works together under a theme which may evoke any number of associations with Pop culture, kinetiscism etc. This is deliberate.

Clive Hancock (Hanz) has evolved his method as an ‘outsider’ artist, having had no formal art education. His work again, has its routes in the late 20th century and also the contemporary practice of neo constructivism.

PSYCHOMETRY

5th November-14th November 2010

Curated by Nick Kaplony

Psychometry also known as token-object reading,or psychoscopy, is a form of extra-sensory perception characterized by the ability to make relevant associations from an object of unknown history by making physical contact with that object. Psychics assert that an object may have an energy field that transfers knowledge regarding that object's history.

Artists to be announced.
