Viewing Old Masters, Modern Masters: Drawings from the Hussey Bequest

In celebration of its 40th anniversary in 2022, Pallant House in Chichester is showing a small but significant collection of rarely displayed drawings from its founding collection, the Hussey Bequest. Assembled by the Rev’d Walter Hussey, Dean of Chichester Cathedral, the collection spans the 16th to 20th centuries, with a strong focus on Renaissance works.

Old Master drawings and British landscapes by Thomas Gainsborough and John Robert Cozens will be shown alongside a group of beautiful set and costume designs for the Ballets Russes. One of the undoubted highlights of the show will be Head of an Eagle (c.1527-28), an ink drawing by the Italian Renaissance artist Giulio Romano, who was the chief assistant of Raphael. Also worthy of note is Jean Antoine Watteau’s Etude de Quatres Personnages, avec Deux Femmes Assises (1708), which Hussey bought on the advice of his friend Henry Moore.

This bijou exhibition offers a rare chance to see some of the extraordinary ‘hidden secrets’ housed at Pallant House. Never has there been a better time to hop on a train south.

Viewing Triangle: Will Kendrick, Catherine Parsonage, Jess Power

Since its launch in 2015, the Freelands Foundation has championed innovative approaches to art education through partnerships and programmes across the UK. Its current exhibition, Triangle, presents the work of the three artists on the inaugural Freelands Painting Fellowships.

There is a pleasingly diverse range of work on display. Look closer at the abstract compositions of Jess Power and you’ll soon decipher a smattering of recognisable references including fantasy creatures, elements of landscape and furniture. Will Kendrick’s installations, meanwhile, examine the world around us and its materials through themes of science fiction and alien life. As for Catherine Parsonage, her intriguing paintings fuse a variety of styles and references, prompting the viewer to question the canon of art history.

For the duration of the exhibition, the Reading Room will also present selected texts and publications that relate to the artists’ practice. A compelling exhibition that will open your ideas to new and exciting ideas in art.

Viewing Fotografiska Shanghai and Berlin

Founded in Stockholm in 2010 by brothers Jan and Per Broman, Fotografiska is one of the world’s leading centres of contemporary photography. It now has three museums worldwide (Stockholm, New York and Tallinn) and has three more in the works. Both the Shanghai and Berlin outposts are poised to open later this year, while the Miami venue is slated for 2023.

The museum in Shanghai will open in an early 20th-century warehouse near the recently renovated Suzhou Creek area. The 4,637-square-metre building spans four floors and features extensive exhibition galleries, indoor and outdoor event space, a concept store and a restaurant overlooking the river. The Berlin museum, meanwhile, will move into the well-known abandoned department store on Oranienburger Strasse in the heart of the city’s Mitte district.

Like the existing Fotografiska venues, the new spaces will host a programme of rotating exhibitions spanning various genres. Expect to see established names like Andy Warhol and Martin Parr shown alongside lesser-known artists and rising stars. If its string of recent exhibitions is anything to go by, we’re in for a treat.
