Opening Hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 12 noon – 6pm (and by appointment on Mondays, Tuesdays, and April 5th to May 4th).

Christina Ramberg (1946-1995) was a central figure in the Chicago Imagist movement, and in first-wave feminist art in the USA.  Beyond those contexts her unique work has emerged as increasingly compelling on its own terms, and highly relevant to artists now.

This exhibition – in association with Corbett vs. Dempsey, Chicago – will be the first showing of Ramberg in the UK since her substantial inclusion in the exhibition Who Chicago, curated by Victor Musgrave thirty-five years ago (touring to Glasgow’s Third Eye Centre in 1980).

Ramberg is best known for imagery of bound, fetishised hands and bodies, and for schematised torsos that can shade into ‘pure’ diagrammatic abstraction. She also assembled many ‘found’ photographs and scrap-book items, made quilts, prints and artist’s books, and kept extensive written notes. 42 Carlton Place will show around twenty small works, in oil, acrylic, ink, pencil and print media.

Gallery event: Sunday April 13th at 2.30 pm, Nadia Hebson and Sophie Macpherson in conversation.
