Sundaram Tagore Gallery specialize in work that is aesthetically and intellectually rigorous, infused with humanism and art historically significant. Our artists produce museum-quality paintings, drawings, sculptures and installations with a strong emphasis on materiality. Our artists and photographers are well represented in renowned museums across the globe. We champion artists, particularly women and those from underrepresented cultures, whose work exemplifies our interconnectedness.

Masculinities Opening 4 July in Arles

The major touring group exhibition Masculinities, curated by Alona Pardo, will open next week at La Mécanique Général as part of the annual photography festival the Rencontres d’Arles. Included in the exhibition is Karen Knorr’s photographic work Gentlemen (1981-1983) photographed in English gentlemen’s clubs in Saint James’ in central London and which considers the patriarchal values of the English upper middle classes with text constructed out of speeches of parliament and news.

Through the medium of film and photography, this major exhibition considers how masculinity has been coded, performed, and socially constructed from the 1960s to the present day. Examining depictions of masculinity from behind the lens, the exhibition brings together the work of over 50 international artists, photographers and filmmakers including Laurie Anderson, Karen Knorr,  Sunil Gupta, Rotimi Fani-Kayode, Isaac Julien and Catherine Opie.
