Duchamp 100 Years Later

Throughout 2017

It is 100 years since Duchamp presented his infamous urinal Fountain, to the art world.  This act of iconoclasm changed the history of art by allowing artists complete artistic freedom and because it posed serious philosophical, artistic and social questions about the nature of artistic creation, which are just as relevant today.

Now in 2017 The Mr Tut (an anagram of R Mutt) Collaboration advances modern art with a work which takes Duchamp’s Fountain and makes it relevant to today's global issues. This, says the Duchamp historian, Calvin Tomkins, is needed now. PeaceWar is the beginning of Peoples Post Modernism when artists move on from art world self-absorption and make works of art of depth and spiritual resonance which unite humanity, as art is supposed to do.


Saturday 14th - Sunday 15th October

Perienne Christian - Everyday Weeds

In this exhibition, Perienne will be showing recent work made at or near her studio in Bawdsey and the results of her residency at the Lookout. This work investigates landscape and place through the lens of everyday weeds. Weeds are at best overlooked and at worst totally annihilated in our culture. But if we look to our not-too-distant past, many of these same weeds were prized for their food and medicinal properties. They hold our history and folklore in their very fabric.

Perienne spends time walking, drawing and collecting these plants, which she then eats, ferments or makes medicines from, building an understanding of them that then goes into her artwork.

Saturday 11th November
