TAG Fine Arts presents Adam Dant “Maps of London And Beyond”

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

To celebrate the launch of his new book ‘Maps of London & Beyond‘, TAG Fine Arts presents a solo show of Adam Dant’s works at The Map House, London.  Adam Dant’s new book is full of his brilliantly inventive maps which focus on the history and culture of London (and beyond). He looks in detail at the neighbourhoods of Shoreditch and Hackney, identifies characters commonly found in the squares of Hoxton and Soho, and charts the history of Gin in the city. There is also a geographical guide to London slang, and a tour of some of the city’s public sculptures. The exhibition includes an extensive selection of original works and limited edition prints that are featured in the book.

Friday 29th June – Saturday 14th July Private View & Book Signing Thursday 28th June 6 – 8pm (by invitation only)

Truth and Beauty present book launch of Terry Munro’s EMPIRE OF ILLUSION

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

On April 18th, 2018, from 4:00 – 8:00 Truth and Beauty Gallery with Vancouver Curator Bill Jeffries, will host  a special event book launch EMPIRE OF ILLUSION by Terry Munro and Text by Bill Jeffries.

 

Over the past decade Canadian artist Terry Munro has concentrated his creative efforts in documenting one street: Las Vegas Boulevard in Nevada, USA. Visually, Las Vegas offers an unprecedented environment that purposely and at great expense seeks to interrogate the relationship between reality, symbols and society in often bizarre, ethnocentric, exaggerated, extraordinary and outrageous ways. It is a place that demands the craving of fantasy, ecstasy and illusion.

The photographs presented here in duotone by Munro distil the hyperbole and extravagance of the Las Vegas strip to reveal simple truths about spectacle as the final manifestation of capitalism. Exploring the ideas and influences of Munro, Bill Jeffries has contributed a text that explores these themes in more detail, and how the photographer’s work sits within the canon of North American photography.    – Black Dog Publishing
