Viewing ‘Bad Manners’ by Jake & Dinos Chapman

Conceived in collaboration with the artist Jake Chapman, this bijou exhibition explores the role of non-consensual collaborations between artists from the mid 19th century to the present day. From overpainting and over layering to modifying signatures and colours, it questions notions of originality and authorship to dazzling effect.

Central to the exhibition is Jake and Dinos Chapman’s Glitter Los Caprichos (2019), a large-scale installation comprising 80 etchings by Goya that have been reworked and ‘improved’ with glitter. Other notable highlights include a drawing by Edouard Manet from 1863 depicting his famous nude Olympia gazing directly at the viewer and a 2021 watercolour by Jake Chapman, executed on top of an etching Manet prepared using this Olympia drawing.

Elsewhere, you’ll encounter a table sculpture (1987) by Martin Kippenberger made using a Gerhard Richter Grey painting and a collage by Jean (Hans) Arp, which incorporates parts of Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s work. This is a clever and intriguing show that will put a smile on your face. Just as the artists intended!
