Paul Nash

Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts

Paul Nash (1889 –1946) is among the most important British artists of the first half of the 20th century and a key figure of Modern Art in Britain. Renowned as an official war artist in both the First and Second World Wars, Nash was fascinated with Britain’s landscapes and ancient history. Inspired by these influences, he interpreted his environment in a very unique and personal way that evolved throughout his career.

Spanning a lifetime’s work from his earliest drawings to his iconic war time paintings, the exhibition will explore Nash’s central role in the development of modern British art. His progressive style provided a basis for his involvement with international modern art movements such as Surrealism. He was a founding member of the British modernist group Unit One which included painters, sculptors and architects such as John Armstrong, Barbara Hepworth, Tristram Hillier, Ben Nicholson, Henry Moore and Edward Wadsworth. The exhibition will show works by Nash alongside his fellow Unit One members, revealing the debates about abstraction and surrealism in which Nash participated during this time. It will explore his contributions to major exhibitions of the 1930s, including the International Surrealist Exhibition of 1936 and the Unit One exhibition which toured across the UK in 1934-5.

The display will consist of paintings by Nash from the Great War, such as the remarkable They Ypres Salient at Night, 1918, early abstractions such as Kinetic Feature, 1931, Surrealism and ancient landscapes such as Druid Landscape, circa 1938, Landscape of the Megaliths, 1934 and Equivalents for the Megaliths, 1935, amongst others. His illustrations for an edition of Urne Burial, the treatise by Norwich polymath Thomas Browne which was re-published in 1931, will also be included.

The exhibition is organised by Tate Britain and will be traveling to Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle upon Tyne after its run at the Sainsbury Centre.

£12/£10.50. Free for members, UEA student members and patrons.

Saturday 21 January 2017, 7.00pm - 8.30pm

UEA Symphony Orchestra and Sacré Théâtre concert: Campus Concert

UEA Drama Studio (UEA campus)                                

Beethoven, Symphony No.5

Debussy/Louÿs, Les Chansons de Bilitis

 

UEA Symphony Orchestra and Sacré Théâtre warmly invite you to join them for a special campus-based concert on Saturday 21 January at 7.00pm in the UEA Drama Studio.

The concert will feature performances, by UEA Symphony Orchestra, of Beethoven’s celebrated Symphony No.5 and Debussy/Louÿs’ haunting Les Chansons de Bilitis.

A towering victory of will over adversity – Beethoven’s Symphony No.5 is the best known in the literature for its unyielding advocacy of the best that we can be. Come and experience this triumph of the human spirit at close quarters.

Sensuous and haunting, Louÿs’ Sapphic poetry and Debussy’s epigrammatic music combine to form a long-lost world, where the young woman Bilitis discovers the pleasures and the sadness of desire.

UEA Symphony Orchestra will be joined in their performance of Les Chansons de Bilitis, by the UK’s longest-running permanent French language theatre company, Sacré Théâtre.

Please note:

Doors open at 6.30pm

Seating is unreserved. Latecomers may not be admitted, so please arrive at the Studio in good time.

We regret that we cannot exchange, refund or transfer tickets unless the event in question has been cancelled or rescheduled.

El Paso: Spanish Artists in the Sainsbury Collection

Sainsbury Centre gallery reception

One Sunday a month, join us for activities inspired by the Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Collection, including practical artist-led workshops in our Sunday Studio and Study Afternoons in the galleries led by our team of volunteer guides.

"El Paso" was the name of an art movement founded in the late 1950s by Antonio Saura, Manolo Millares and others. This group wanted to counter what they saw as the stagnation of Spanish art under the Franco regime after the civil war. Our session will situate their ideas and work in the context of Spanish art at that time, and consider to what extent they were successful in their mission.

“A thoroughly enjoyable and interesting series of talks by the guides who are knowledgeable and enthusiastic”
