Philip Guston
‘Drive’, 1969
Oil on panel

‘Drive’ is one of Guston’s earliest figurative works in the bold cartoonish style he became known for. It is also an early introduction to the hooded figure that he viewed as a symbol of evil and would paint often in his career. Guston commented: “my attempt was really not ... to do pictures of the K*K, as I had done earlier. The idea of evil fascinated me ... I almost tried to imagine that I was living with the Klan. What would it be like to be evil?”

The title ‘Drive’ references the car, represented as a brown murky mound that the white hooded figure sticks out of like a snow-topped peak, emerging from the mud with pink fleshy hands in thick oil paint. In Guston’s paintings, the hooded figures turn absurd as they openly partake in regular daily activities, pointing to society’s complicity in evil acts.

Made against the backdrop of the civil rights movement and social and political violence in America, Guston’s paintings can be seen as his attempt to tell the story of a country that he felt had ‘run afoul of its democratic promise,’ and to hold up a mirror up to fellow white Americans, including himself, about systemic racism, saying ‘we’re all hoods!’.

The first major retrospective of Guston in the UK in nearly 20 years is on-show at Tate Modern until 25 February.

2023 is almost over and what a year it’s been!

A big thank you to everyone who has been part of our programme and all the audiences who have visited this year.

Here are some of the things we were up to 👇

1: ‘Deep Horizons’ drew together 60 works from the collections of David and Indrė Roberts and the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, where the exhibition took place, and explored ideas around excavation. (📸 Jason Hynes)

2: After a year of development, we premiered our new performance commission by Rachel Jones, ‘Hey, Maudie’. The opera-based performance inaugurated our Practising Performance programme. (📸 Anne Tetzlaff)

3: This spring we were joined by our first-ever writer-in-residence at the RIA Residency in Scotland, Vanessa Onwuemezi. While in residence, Vanessa used her time to begin working on her second book. (📸 Paul Maguire)

4: We collaborated with Hestercombe Gallery on their ‘Design for Life: Art and Architecture - Part 1’ exhibition, lending twelve works from the David and Indrė Roberts Collection to be displayed alongside key works from the Drawing Matter Collection. This year, a wide range of works from the Collection were sent off on loan to institutions around the world, from Australia to China. (📸 Jon England)

5: Last month, we continued our Collection Studies series with our ‘Close Looking’ exhibition at Cromwell Place, where we commissioned six writers to respond to six works from the David and Indrė Roberts Collection. (📸 Elliott Mickleburgh)

‘The moon looks at me silently’ / ‘As I press my body’ / ‘leaving my mark’

‘Untitled (for Prem)’ is Osman Yousefzada’s response to Prem Sahib’s ‘User_01’ (2016) – a panel of aluminium and resin evoking the eroticism of sweaty walls in clubs.

Commissioned for our 'Close Looking' exhibition at Cromwell Place, Osman’s poem sensually frames the work by reminding us of the complexity of our bodies and the traces they leave.

Listen to each commissioned writer read you their text in response to six works from the David and Indrė Roberts Collection:

📣 Introducing our next Practising Performance artist, Simeon Barclay.

We are excited to announce the second artist in RIA’s commissioning programme, Practising Performance.

Simeon Barclay’s practice often takes the form of sculptures or installations rooted in a strong relationship with material histories. Barclay has an intense interest in the body and the self, investigating how self-image is created and grappled with. Fashion, dance, the theatrical, posing and adornments are intricately woven throughout his work and will inform the research and development of a new performance work.

Jonathan works across multiple platforms including sculpture, installation and performance.

His work often takes on a biographical form, as he addresses the trauma, stress, sensuality, mortality and spirituality around our relationship to the body and the space it inhabits.

Don’t miss Jonathan’s first UK survey show, ‘Through the joy of the senses’, at Charleston (13 Sep-7 Jan), and his solo exhibition ‘Touch Wood’ at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (23 Sep-14 Apr).

🎬 From Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Pulp Fiction’ to Brian De Palma’s ‘Scarface’, ‘Crossfire’ explores Hollywood’s fascination with violence and fi****ms in a video installation where the viewer becomes engulfed in gunfire.

🎵 What first appears as a compilation of frenzied shooting soon turns the violent weapons into rhythmic instruments, making the bullets dance to a hidden beat that follows a precise rhythm and structure.

🚪 Following his seminal piece ‘The Clock’ from 2010, Marclay’s new work 'Doors’ opens this evening at Mason’s Yard in London. In a similar method to ‘Crossfire’, Marclay has collaged film clips of a single action – a door opening or closing.

In her paintings, Francesca creates compositions that are abstractions from and atmospheric evocations of specific elements of an environment or place – such as doorways and glossy and reflective surfaces on buildings.

Next month, Francesca will join our in Scotland, where she will look into the phenomenon of iridescence in the natural environment, exploring perceptions of surface, light and material.

‘Oblivion’, 2019 by Martyn Cross 💨

A recent addition to 💫

Cross is primarily a painter engaged with ‘world making.’ The act of painting for him is a means to explore the inner life and strangeness of the ordinary. Each work begins in reality, with recognizable limbs and elements of landscape, which transform into uncanny scenes. 🌄

His work has recently been shortlisted for the John Moores Painting Prize and will be exhibited at the JMPP 2023 exhibition at Walker Art Gallery in September. 🎨

Vanessa began the event reading an extract from her second book that she started while in residence. 📖

After, Colin Herd and Vanessa discussed writing about elusive identities, atmospheres and phenomena, which they explored by looking at UFOs, the ‘haar’ (a sea fog), and the expressive possibilities of language when written in translation and in relation to artworks. 🛸

As approaches the last days of her , she shares a few more snippets of her readings:

📷 1:
My interest in translation led me to fellow author Kate Briggs, and her fantastic book ‘This Little Art’. I read a brilliant conversation that she had with Renee Gladmann about translation and writing. Gladmann is also a very interesting
writer, blending architecture with prose to reshape language.

📷 2:
Side by side, ‘Dastram / Delirium’ by Alasdair Mac Mhaighstir Alasdair, translated by . The first full-length collection of Alasdair to appear in English in over a century. Alongside it is ‘Oo An Feddirs’ a poetry collection by poet Christie
Williamson, which weaves poetry both in English and Shetland dialect.

📷 3:
‘Flying Saucers’, by Carl G. Jung, I didn’t know until recently that Jung wrote about the UFO phenomenon. He looks at it with characteristic profundity: ‘The cause must strike at the roots of our existence if it is to explain such an extraordinary phenomenon
as the UFOs.’

📷
4: Preparing for a reading of something I’ve been working on while, practiced with a willing (captive) audience. If I were to come back to this area, I’d take a look at how agriculture has shaped it historically. I’ve spent a lot of time passing through beautiful yellow fields of rapeseed, but I couldn’t take a picture for you because I was driving.

As  approaches the last days of her , she gives an insight into some her visits and explorations: 

📷 1-2: It’s a Glasgow Monday for ‘Creative Conversations’, the series programmed by The Creative Writing School at the . I saw poet and translator .strickland.arts speak about both his own work and translating the work of Scottish Gaelic poet Alasdair Mac Mhaighstir Alasdair. 

📷 3-5: A visit to in Arbroath. Hospitalfield has been dedicated to working with the arts and artists since the early 19th century. Previously an art school, it is now an artist’s residency, hosts public events, and has beautiful gardens and a café. The current exhibition is .Hart_’s ‘BIG TIME’, an installation of sundials on the lawn.  

📷 6-7: After, I took myself to E & O Fish to pick up some smokies, and treated myself to an hour (and a half) at the beach. 

📷 8: Back at the RIA Residency, the short hike up to the Airlie monument took me through a pine forest where the smell was calming and the air cool. I emerged into clearing which gave onto great long view, beautiful but devastated by the damage caused by Storm Arwen in 2021.
