We are delighted to announce the return of the Pop Art icon Jann Haworth, who will be showcasing her solo exhibition Out of the Rectangle coinciding with Women's History Month.

The upcoming exhibition, Out of the Rectangle, challenges the ubiquitous rectangle framework that shapes much of our visual art and defines our everyday lives. Renowned artist Jann Haworth breaks away from the constraints of fine art traditions and embraces a more process-oriented approach to create pieces that are softer and more organic.

As a pioneer of soft sculpture, Haworth revisits the residual borderline between Arts & Crafts and Fine Art, highlighting the persistent divide that still exists despite the redefining efforts of fiber artists, ceramicists, weavers, and other artisans.

The exhibition showcases Haworth's visceral relationship with artistic materials such as gesso, rabbit skin glue, mid-tone duck-cream linen canvas, and pigment ground from rock. The hang creates a tension between conventional and contemporary curation, featuring notable historic works alongside newly commissioned pieces that invite participation, such as rectilinear cardboard works with reflective glass, a circular stretcher, a freestanding mannequin, and two double life-size corsets.

Out of the Rectangle offers a thought-provoking and visually stunning experience that challenges visitors to question the rectangular framework that shapes our lives and our art. Don't miss this opportunity to witness Haworth's groundbreaking work and explore the boundaries between Arts & Crafts and Fine Art.
