On 20 September 2018, Royal Museums Greenwich will open four new permanent galleries – Tudor and Stuart Seafarers, Pacific Encounters, Polar Worlds and Sea Things – which cover British and European exploration from the late-fifteenth century through to the present day.
Polar Worlds explores British endeavours in the Arctic and Antarctic within a wider world-view of collaborative scientific investigation, cultural encounter, international economies, and national political rivalries. It examines the major British polar expeditions of the past 250 years, whilst shining a spotlight on the contemporary and changing significance of the Arctic and Antarctic regions today.
The gallery introduces visitors to the geography, environment and histories of the Arctic and Antarctica through their similarities and differences, the people and wildlife that live there, as well as the numerous expeditions and pioneers who risked their lives to explore them. With Arctic exploration in the North end of the gallery, and Antarctic exploration in the South side, the central display brings both polar regions together, examining their political, cultural and environmental status in the world today, and considering what the future may hold for these important places.

Oliver Projects, East Dulwich, London
Drawing Closer, is a group exhibition of new and recent works on paper by South London-based artists Joseph Goody, Rebecca Harper and Tamsin Relly, curated by Oliver Projects.
Displayed in a London family home, the selection of work explores interior and exterior spaces, memories and drawn boundaries – both visible and invisible. Each artist investigates these ideas in distinctive ways. Whilst Relly’s work explore society’s relationship with natural and urban environments, Goody’s practice examines relationships between abstract forms. Harper’s paintings for this project, inspired by old family photographs, navigate similar themes of distance and interaction, albeit from a personal perspective.
All works are available for sale and we hope to offer viewings by appointment from June 1st. Please click here to enquire.

27 Artists. 180 Original Polaroid Works.
Concurrent with Photo London, Peckham 24 and Dulwich Festival, After presents One of One, an exploration of the enduring fascination of analogue process in the digital age.
Using polaroid film as a focal point, One Of One explores how an artist responds to the immediacy of the polaroid and its effect on our experience of materiality. Each artist has physically engaged with the polaroid while exploring the traditions of their respective practices. In many cases, the Polaroids have been embellished, painted or customised.
A polaroid is one of a kind, as with each resulting artwork, presenting a fantastic opportunity to collect original, affordable, artworks by outstanding artists while supporting Children And The Arts,
In early February of 1969 Willoughby Sharp asked 9 artists to use the Andrew Dickson White Museum of Art (now Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art) as a point of departure for their new way of conceptualizing and making work; one often inextricably tied to the material of the soil itself. In doing so Earth Art became the first exhibition at an American museum to engage with artworks that asked viewers to look beyond traditional art objects and the institutional frame and look instead to the frame of experience.
Celebrating the 50 year anniversary of this visionary exhibition, Site Work brings together 13 contemporary artists that represent a continuation of that dialogue. Working across mediums the pieces use sound, labor, duration, and gesture to evoke particular moments, processes, and landscapes that challenge our conception of being present in space. Site Work illustrates the persistence of questions about the discourse between art object, experience, and activism, especially as lenses for how we relate to, and occupy our environment in uncertain times.
9 Artists celebrates work made south of the river in a series of temporary exhibitions presented in collaboration with local architects and business owners. Our aim is showcase accessibly-priced work in non-gallery spaces that feel welcoming, giving visitors an opportunity to enjoy the exhibitions and purchase work for their homes in an environment on a domestic scale.

In 2014 a group of visual artists sailed in a tall ship up the west coast of Svalbard. They all witnessed the same landscape, yet, as they filtered the experience through their individual thematic and aesthetic concerns, a series of translations occurred, across a range of media including photography, video and drawing. In response, seven of the artists developed That Which Cannot Be Transmitted, a project which considers how the process of translation can shape contemporary discourse about the Arctic. Exploring overlapping themes of temporality and the Anthropocene, three of these artists will each present their work.
Tamsin Relly works with the fluid and unpredictable qualities of printmaking and photography to disrupt the translation of landscape into image, and offer impressions of environments in states of uncertainty or impermanence.
Paper, lines and cutting are central to Sandra Kuehne´s practice. Printed materials such as polar maps are frequently used as media. Kuehne employs the variations of the line, its formal lyricism, but also challenges the absolute assertion of any printed map by making references to topography that is in continual flux. Daniel Kukla´s work is informed by the intersection of his art practice and formal training in the biological and anthropological sciences. He is interested in the shifting tensions towards the natural world as our society expands with an insatiable appetite for resources.

Mezzanine level, Barbican Centre
British artists including Stuart Carey, Alice Herrick, Marie-Claire Porter, Tamsin Relly, Stuart Semple, Gavin Turk, Richard Wilson and Rebecca Youssefi have designed bespoke ceramic plates to raise vital funds for the Barbican Centre Trust.
The one-of-a-kind plates are now on display in the Barbican’s foyers until 11 March 2018 before being auctioned later this year.
All proceeds from the sale of the plates will go to the Barbican Centre Trust, a charity dedicated to supporting the Barbican’s international arts and learning programme. Last year, the Barbican programmed 3,800 events across art, dance, film, music and theatre while its Creative Learning programmes and events helped almost 80,000 people of all ages and backgrounds to access world-class arts for free.
This Autumn, an exhibition of work by contemporary artists, Tamsin Relly and Henry Hussey, will go on display for three months at the London-based art lighting specialists, TM Lighting. Curated by Jo Baring of the Ingram Collection, the exhibition is a collaboration with TM Lighting as part of the art lighting company’s ongoing programme of exhibitions supporting emerging artists.
Hussey and Relly will collaborate for the first time in a two-person exhibition ‘Planet on Fire’. Their works both address current socio-political and environmental issues. Relly’s multi-layered, tonal and expressive paintings will juxtapose Hussey’s bold striking works in tapestry, alongside a selection of new original prints by both artists.
In addition, PIY PaintLounge will support Hospital Rooms, an arts and mental health charity, and highlight as many painters as possible with a unique fundraising exhibition of small works. The ‘Make Your Mark’ exhibition will support Hospital Rooms with 20 x 20cm painted works sold for £30 each, with all profits to go to support the charity.
Forest Memory brings together a selection of recent paintings, drawings and monotypes by Tamsin Relly, which bear witness to some of the world’s rapidly changing arbor and botanical environments. The work considers the preservation of these ecosystems through conservation, remote green houses, and memory – personal, collective or held within the land.
Drawing from both found media imagery and first-hand observations, Relly works with the fluid and unpredictable qualities of her materials and processes to present impressions of these natural and urban spaces in states of uncertainty or impermanence. Research includes visiting and studying diverse locations such as Boreal Forests in Hämeenkyrö, Finland, The Eden Project in Cornwall, and the fabricated oasis of the Las Vegas Strip.
Inspired by the beauty of the planet and the wisdom of its people, the exhibition will explore the essence of the twelve traditions coming together for the Council and Symposium and capture both Humanity and the Earth’s natural splendour. Each tradition will be represented through photography and film clips providing an insight into these cultures, as well as a glimpse into ancient ecological wisdom and its mystical relationship with nature.
Alongside this will be displayed a collection of 40 contemporary artworks portraying the beauty of the planet, Man’s imprint on Nature and Man and Nature’s relationship to one another. Renowned artists, galleries and private collectors, are generously donating these artworks.

Imagining the Amazon is an installation of new paintings and monotypes by Tamsin Relly, curated by Alteria Art at The Collective, House of St Barnabas, London.
The exhibition explores the relationships between wild and cultivated jungle environments; and the preservation of these ecosystems through conservation, remote constructed greenhouses and our imaginations. While celebrating the wonder and bio-diversity of life in the world’s rainforests, Relly’s work considers the fragility and decline of these habitats through deforestation and climate change.
Set against the backdrop of the rainforest-inspired wallpaper in the Garden Room, the exhibition reflects on how notions of exotic environments are woven into the every-day through art, design and popular culture. ‘I’ve always taken comfort in the idea of wilderness, but as more of our natural spaces are cultivated, developed or polluted, perhaps any truly untouched nature is at risk of living only through our imaginations.’
We are pleased to donate 7% of the sales towards World Land Trust for the purchase and protection of tropical forests.
A Sense of Place is a group exhibition curated by Stuart Evans, featuring work from his private collection and the Simmons & Simmons Collection. The show includes work by Nobuyoshi Araki, Anna Barriball, Richard Billingham, Sebastiaan Bremer, Nan Goldin, Paul Graham, Howard Hodgkin, Paul Housely, Mustafa Hulusi, Christina Mackie, Jorge Queiroz, Tamsin Relly and Mark Wallinger.
In the 1930s Gertrude Stein famously said of Oakland, California, ‘there is no there there’. What did she mean by that? The term ‘sense of place’ is often used to describe characteristics that make a place special or unique, that foster a sense of authentic human attachment and belonging. The place is not just a backdrop but, as Philip Hensher writes, ‘it is part of the humanity at the centre of the endeavour’. The artists in the exhibition explore or record three-dimensional spaces that are imbued with this special sense of place.

The Royal Geographical Society, London
Uncommon Ground: New Art from the Landscape brings together the work of 11 contemporary Artists at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in Kensington, London, to bear witness to the reciprocal, critical and often unclarifiable relationship between the artist and the landscape.
Either through a direct engagement with, or a quiet reflection on, the environment around them, all of the exhibitors seek to indicate their presence in the landscape. Using a range of material processes and different methods of observation, the resulting works examine the artists’ complicated relationships with the landscape.
Green Creates is an art exhibition in support of The Green Party of England and Wales, celebrating creativity, art, activism, nature, passion and expression across a diverse range of media from a broad selection of creatives.
All of the artwork has been donated by the artists, and there will be a live auction of a number of select pieces and a silent auction of everything else, with the money raised going towards supporting the work of the Green Party.
Opening Times: Wed-Fri; 11-6pm Saturdays 11-2pm. Other times by appointment www.jaggedart.com
Exhibition curated by Katherine Jones
The Terrarium Drawn explores the evolution of environments, both natural and fabricated, global and domestic. All five artists use drawing as a fundamental part of their practice in order to grasp an idea and to explore its development.
Lucy Bainbridge depicts manmade environments in constant flux, while Tamsin Relly draws from her first-hand experience of ‘wilderness, erased or constructed for industry or leisure’ during recent research trips to the Arctic Circle and Las Vegas. Michael Taylor uses ‘a process of layered construction’ to attempt an understanding of how an image derives its meaning. Hen Coleman examines contrasts in ‘the terrain of chaotic and abundant nature’ as the basis for exploration.
The artists have been drawn together for this exhibition by Katherine Jones, an artist whose own work shares common themes with each. Her recent images reflect the gradual integration of unfamiliar plants, adapting to environmental and atmospheric changes, renewing the balance and diversity of domestic flora and fauna.

Recently there seems to be a resurgence of landscape painting on the contemporary South African art scene. Arcadia looks at this through the eyes of six contemporary painters and printmakers, each with their own interpretation of the landscape they find themselves in.
Banele Khoza and Rosie Mudge have approached this with a contemporary digital gaze in painting and printmaking. While Tamsin Relly and Ruby Swinney transport us with their ethereal brushstrokes from the Arctic Circle to the company gardens in Cape Town. Talya Lubinsky offers a conceptual sculptural edge with her masterful engagement with maps and Richard Witikani an older more established artist from Zimbabwe shares his love of rural life with his timeless landscapes of home.
