In this show we will portray the diversity and historical importance of the work and exhibitions that Gallery Vassie has presented to The Netherlands over the past 12 years.
With this in mind, we have decided to create a 19th century-style 'Salon Hang' and go wild on the gallery's walls - from floor to ceiling! This exhibition will include, amongst other things, images such as: the elegant timelessness of Norman Parkinson's Fashion shoots from the middle of the 20th century; historical early 20th century images by Lee Miller and Jacques Henri Lartigue; iconic music images from Gered Mankowitz and music and fashion from the 60s and 70s by legend Brian Duffy.
This is an opportunity to see for the very first time the diversity of the photographers that the gallery represents, all in one exhibition. We are extremely proud to announce that this year is the 12th Anniversary of Gallery Vassie. To celebrate this momentous occasion we will be presenting highlights from the gallery's exhibition programme spanning the past 12 years, from our inaugural exhibition in 2003, right up to our latest shows.
This will be the most challenging (and of course exciting) hang that we have attempted at the gallery, completely mixing genres, styles and sizes, to create an impressive retrospective of Gallery Vassie. Alongside completely contrasting contemporary pieces such as, the quirky and obscure work of Antoni + Alison, the heightened unique one-off colour images of Christopher Bucklow and the strangeness of the everyday of the images by Michelle Sank. We hope that you will love the exhibition visually, just as much as we have enjoyed curating such an adventurous show.
All photographs are available for purchase. For press images, further information, or if you'd like to speak with any of the (living!) photographers, then please contact the gallery.
