Sarah Maple – Jealous Art Gallery, London October 2020
The unmissable exhibition is a ground breaking collaboration between one of the most potent and singular young voices in British art and a curator who is a loud champion of female artists and voice for anti-elitism in the arts.
British artist Sarah Maple (b. 1985) will debut a new exhibition curated by Kate Bryan, arts Broadcaster and Head of Collections for Soho House globally. Maple is recognised for her provocative work that challenges ideas around identity, religion, the artworld, feminism and freedom of expression.
Often using herself as a conduit to challenge stereotypes and normative behaviour, Maple is adept at confronting complex issues that we are all thinking about with wit, irony and a startling honesty. Maple’s own mixed religious and cultural background informs much of her work. She works across a variety of media including painting, photography, video, performance, ready-mades and collage.
Her past exhibitions have focussed on Brexit, taboo representations of Muslim women, ardent feminist themes, xenophobia, Trump and toxic masculinity.
This exhibition is a culmination of her work to date and is her sharpest and most biting presentation yet: a satire on the artworld that she both rejoices in and despairs at. The exhibition arbitrarily takes its name from the words with the highest ‘click through’ appeal and will include text-based marble works, collage, mixed media installation and video.
