The New Art Gallery Walsall is delighted to present a major solo exhibition of paintings by Ged Quinn. The exhibition will survey Quinn’s practice over the last four years, bringing together paintings from private collections in Europe and America as well as a brand new body of work created especially for this project. The exhibition will testify to the breadth of the artist’s practice and will include landscapes, portraits and still lives, resplendent in references to history, myth and popular culture from across and through time.
Although Quinn has shown extensively in Europe and America, this will be his first major solo exhibition in a public gallery in the UK since Tate St Ives in 2004 and Tate Liverpool as part of the 2008 Liverpool Bienmial.
A substantial publication accompanies the exhibition with texts by Michael Bracewell and Dr Brian Dillon as well as colour reproductions of all works exhibited. The publication is co-published with Stephen Friedman Gallery, London and supported by Walsall Museums and Galleries Development Trust.
