von Bartha is pleased to present a retrospective of work by Welsh artist Barry Flanagan across the Basel gallery’s north and south spaces, 21 May – 31 July 2021. The exhibition will showcase a variety of Flanagan’s practice from different periods of his career, revealing the breadth of the artist’s work and the continual reinvention of his practice and approach to art making.
Barry Flanagan (1941–2009) was one of Britain’s pre-eminent artists. The exhibition will bring together a diverse range of works by Flanagan from throughout his career, from the 1960s to the late noughties across the media of film, drawing, photography and sculpture, amongst others. Alongside the artist’s iconic hare sculptures, the exhibition will also showcase early sculptures which demonstrate Flanagan‘s radical experimentation with materials such as cloth, stone, sand and clay. Works from different periods of Flanagan’s career will sit in dialogue with one another, revealing the core themes which lie at the heart of the artist’s oeuvre such as Shamanism, Pataphysics and theatricality.
