11.00am – 5.00pm

Compton Verney’s 2017 season will open with a major exhibition that examines our relationship with the countryside. Bringing together Old Masters and contemporary artists whose work spans more than 350 years, Creating the Countryside provokes reflection on the artistic, social and political forces that have played an important role in forming successive generations’ perceptions of this ‘green and pleasant land’.

Works by artists including Thomas Gainsborough, Claude Lorrain, George Stubbs and Stanley Spencer are joined by pieces from contemporary artists such as Karen Knorr, Mat Collishaw, Anna Fox, Sigrid Holmwood and Grayson Perry to present viewers with a broad spectrum of responses to, and interpretations of, this sceptred isle.

‘Punks’ at Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire / Paris

Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire

Exhibition “Les Femmes s’en mêLent revisited: Facts and Fantaisies”
Curated by Stéphane Amiel & Marie Magnier

February 1-25, 2017
Opening Tuesday January 31, 6-9pm

In February 2017, Les Femmes s’en Mêlent festival (LFSM) and Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire (LFDC) decided to celebrate their 20th anniversary together. These two Paris-based institutions both de- velop and defend an original and finally quite similar vision of women artistic expression. For this reason, it only seemed natural for the gallery to host an exhibition on the history of the festival and more broadly, on women iconography in the music world.

‘India Song’ at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale

India Song at Collaterals
Kochi-Muziris Biennale, Kochi, India 

Passage Malabar, Fort Kochi
Dates: 13th December 2016 to 29th March 2017

As part of the third edition of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale, Tasveer is thrilled to be showcasing a selection of works from Karen Knorr’s critically acclaimed ‘India Song’ series at a Collateral event at Passage Malabar in Fort Kochi.

India Song is a series of carefully crafted photographs that blurs the lines between reality and illusion by inserting animals into architectural spaces and heritage sites. This unexpected juxtaposition playfully subverts cultural spaces and punctures meanings traditionally associated with them, while posing questions about power, gender, colonialism and cultural appropriation through allegory.

KAREN KNORR at ENCONTROS DA IMAGEM /International Photography Festival




The International Photography Festival ENCONTROS DA IMAGEM returns to the city of Braga to focus on the affective dimension, during a time of tremendous changes and upheavals. Alongside the current technological impulse that questions the limits of the visible, in which the image casts us to even further away places, to where the world is revealed through its most hidden and unexpected aspects, it seemed like the appropriate moment to promote an edition dedicated to the discovery of the other, appealing to the sentimental turn and to the simple and discreet quest for Happiness.
