  • More Info

Contemporary British artists Rosalind Nashashibi and Lucy Skaer will premiere in the UK an ambitious new 16mm film that retraces Paul Gauguin’s fêted journey to Tahiti. The exhibition will include an exploration of the mythology surrounding Gauguin and his time in French Polynesia. Visions of the tropics by Gauguin will be shown alongside his predecessors, such as William Hodgesand Edward Gennys Fanshawe who accompanied Captain Cook to the South Pacific, as well as Nashashibi/Skaer’s new film. Together these works will address the way art has represented the exoticised woman and colonised lands.
