Gallery 46 in Whitechapel is our new sister gallery to be used as Londonewcastle Project Space. The new space, established through the partnership of Martin J Tickner and Sean McLusky and Fruitmachine founders, Martin Bell & Wai Hung Young breaks fresh ground for the open-source, non-conformist curatorial approach Tickner and McLusky employed at their (rightly) notorious MEN Gallery, in Shoreditch.Housed in a pair of newly renovated Georgian houses in the grounds of Whitechapel Hospital, GALLERY 46 is set over 3 floors and 8 rooms and is a kaleidoscopic addition to Whitechapel’s burgeoning gallery scene and close by its artistic...→
Our Street Art Programme is about turning over large canvases on buildings under our control – during planning and development – to artists, from the internationally renowned to the completely unknown. If you’d like Londonewcastle to showcase your work, contact us...→
Gérard Rancinan is one of the world’s leading contemporary fine art photographers. For the past 7 years, Rancinan, along with writer Caroline Gaudriault, have been developing the ‘**Trilogy of the Moderns**’ – a revolution in three acts.
Pitched somewhere between comedy and tragedy, this vivid photographic tableau and accompanying texts paint a picture of a confused humanity, blindly groping in the darkness, obsessed with fame and guided only by an absolute desire for generalised happiness.
In May 2012 Rancinan will open the Triennale di Milano at the Museum of Contemporary Art to present the entire trilogy of works; ‘Metamorphoses, Hypotheses and **Wonderful World**’.
**From June 7th 2012** The Future Tense in association with [Opera Gallery] and [Londonewcastle] will present the UK debut of the final series, **Wonderful World**.
With galleries one and two housing the main exhibition of 15 large format works, gallery three will feature a purpose-built set and studio, offering a voyeuristic glimpse behind the scenes of a fine art photo shoot.
During the opening weekend, attendees will have the opportunity to take part in a casting for the final **Wonderful World** composition, which will be shot entirely on-site at the gallery. Repeat visits will reveal the organic nature of studio life – part art installation, part film set, part soap opera – as the shoot moves from concept, through production and postproduction, to the climactic unveiling of the finished work at a special reception on **Wednesday 20th June**.
To celebrate thecompletion of Trilogy of the Moderns, The Future Tense will publish a new print edition by Gérard Rancinan. Limited to a signed edition of 20 + 4 Artist Proofs, the work will be available only to those attending the show. A pop-up store will also sell related merchandise including the supporting books.
More details on taking part in the casting will be posted here [www.facebook.com/thefuturetense] on **Tuesday 1st May**.
Other events will include an artist signing, curator talks and a Q&A panel.
