DO I HAVE TO DRAW YOU A PICTURE?

Sat 16 June 2018 - Sun 7 October 2018

The Heong Gallery

Artists include Louise Bourgeois, Jenny Holzer, Jasper Johns, Glenn Ligon, Bruce Nauman, Eduardo Paolozzi, Grayson Perry RA, Ed Ruscha, Wolfgang Tillmans, and others.

The rise of mass and electronic media meant that artists were no longer required for the transmission of objective content. Artists in this exhibition make communication and its technologies the medium and subject of their work. For these artists, as for thinkers such as Ludwig Wittgenstein and Marshall McLuhan, communication is never straightforward. From Louise Bourgeois' parables of personal relationships He disappeared into complete silence (1947-2005) to Bob and Roberta Smith’s open Letter to Michael Gove (2015) and Wolfgang Tillmans' pro-EU posters (2016), the exhibition explores the potential and limitations of communication in making connections across distances - whether they be psychological, cultural or geographical - and art’s own role in ensuring that 'no man is an island'.
