Simon Lee Gallery is pleased to announce the launch of Paulina Olowska's book Her Auntology, on the occasion of her solo exhibition at Kistefos Museum in Norway.
Her Hauntology explores the artist's own fertile exploration into Slavic mythology and imagery, the female gaze and the concept of Hauntology; which refers to the recurrence of elements from the social or cultural past as in the manner of a ghost or spectre.

Congratulations to the amazing Sonia Boyce who has won the Golden Lion for Best National Participation for the British Pavilion at the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia.
The exhibition On Fire, curated by Bruno Corà, brings together some of the most iconic works either made with fire, or that include the presence of flames. Naturally fleeting, with no form, weight or density, fire has always fascinated artists, both for its potential effects on other materials and as an active presence in works of art.
Simon Lee Gallery is pleased to announce its representation of Ghanaian artist Serge Attukwei Clottey. Work by Clottey will feature in the gallery’s upcoming Art Basel 2022 presentation. The artist’s inaugural exhibition with the gallery will be presented in Spring 2023 in London. Simchowitz Gallery continues to represent Clottey in the United States.
Sonia Boyce OBE RA will represent Great Britain at the 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia in 2022. The exhibition will feature a major solo exhibition of new work from the artist.
For season 2022 in The Twist, Kistefos will present the first major survey in Scandanavia of artist Paulina Olowska (b. 1976, Gdansk, Poland), whose practice includes painting, sculpture, installation, and performance. The exhibition will comprise both earlier and recent works, including key works from Christen Sveaas Art Collection and Christen Sveaas Art Foundation, transitioning from a more traditional display in the closed gallery through to a dynamic installation-based presentation in the Panorama gallery.
This survey exhibition of collage work spans 30 years and features Marnie Weber’s resplendent, uncanny worlds that conflate the imagined and the sentimental. Tenaciously realized, her mixed-media collages are carefully staged and colorized dreamscapes inhabited by a wondrous roster of anthropomorphs and archetypes. Unreal Paradise takes us on a journey through absurd landscapes with the allure of desire, magic, and loss.
Dexter Dalwood’s practice presents an ongoing investigation into the role of images and painting in the construction of history. Reconstructing recent events of political and social relevance in juxtaposition with art historical, musical and literary sources, the artist explores the enduring relevance of painting as a means of communicating history and our interpretations of the subject. His cut-and-paste collage technique reminds us that if alternate realities can coexist within one image, then so too can they within both our everyday experiences and comprehension of past happenings. Dalwood constructs his paintings akin to how we construct memory, drawing together distinct concepts to provoke wider associations, encouraging his viewers to consider how actions, events and figurative images are understood. He invites us to reflect upon how we subjectively and collectively sample, frame, edit, crop and consume images in order to make sense of the world.
Benefiting the museum’s mission to support the art of our time, MOCA has created a series of collectible boxes featuring their world-renowned collection. The inaugural release features The Spirit Bear by Marnie Weber.
