 Exhibition to May 28, 2021

Due to the current national lockdown, Modern Art Oxford has taken the decision to postpone Ruth Asawa: Citizen of the Universe, which was due to open this spring. The exhibition will now open on 28 May 2022 and close 21 August 2022, before moving to Stavanger Museum in Norway from 1 October 2022 - 22 January 2023.  
 
It has also announced new dates for 2 further planned exhibitions – Samson Kambalu: New Liberia and Anish Kapoor: Painting.  More details are here:
 
Samson Kambalu: New Liberia  - 22 May - 5 September 2021 
For his largest solo exhibition yet, Samson Kambalu (b. 1975, Malawi, Africa – lives and works in Oxford, UK) creates a powerful installation centred on his search for a more enchanted world beyond the limitations of everyday life. Poetically articulated with colour, subversive humour and compelling intelligence, Kambalu combines video, images and texts for a timely exploration of sovereignty and resistance in the long interplay between Malawi, the UK and US.
 
Anish Kapoor: Painting - 2 October 2021 – 13 February 2022
A unique exhibition of paintings by Anish Kapoor (b. 1954, Mumbai – lives and works in London, UK). Curated with the internationally celebrated artist, this show explores the paintings that have been an integral part of Kapoor's studio practice. The materiality of Kapoor's substantial body of new works pushes the boundaries between sculpture and painting into visceral new ground. This is the second time Kapoor has exhibited at Modern Art Oxford, the first being his inclusion in India: Myth and Reality in 1982, which showed his seminal sculptural works.
