Christen Sveaas Art Foundation: The Unseen, Selected by Hurvin Anderson. Whitechapel Gallery

20 May – 7 August 2022 Gallery 7 | Free entry






Painter Hurvin Anderson (b. 1965, UK) reflects on depictions of black figures and experience in The Unseen, an artist-curated selection of 26 works from the Christen Sveaas Art Foundation. Drawing on the introduction to Ralph Ellison’s influential and epoch-defining novel, The Invisible Man (1952), and upon the artists own Jamaican heritage, Anderson joins lesser-known artists with modern and contemporary icons, each of which explore aspects ‘the unseen’ or invisible through paint, collage, fabric and found object. The display spans painting, sculpture and collage from artists Simphiwe Ndzube (b. 1990, South Africa), Per Krohg (b. 1889-1965), Robert Rauschenberg (b. 1925-2008), Ibrahim Mahama (b. 1987, Ghana), Howard Hodgkin (b. 1932-2017) and more.
