 LOCAL EVENTS FOR 2019

APRIL 2019

19 April-19 May: Heath Robinson Museum: The Beardsley Generation. The exhibition will explore the impact that new photographic means of reproduction (process engraving) at the end of the 19th Century had on illustration. Older artists who had relied on the craft wood-engraver to work up their sketches for publication were swept aside and a new generation of artists, well versed in the requirements of process engraving, were much in demand. The new technology also resulted in an expansion in the production of illustrated books and periodicals. After a period of dull realism, the new men looked for inspiration to the last time that there had been intensity and emotion in illustration. This led them to the work of the 1860s illustrators, especially Rossetti, Millais and Boyd Houghton. They also turned to the illustrated books printed in Venice and Florence around 1500; to the Japanese woodblock prints of artists such as Hiroshige; and to Symbolist painters such as Gustav Moreau. Central to the exhibition will be the work of Aubrey Beardsley, Charles Ricketts, Laurence Housman and the Robinson brothers. Their work will be represented through original drawings, books and periodicals drawn from both public and private collections. For opening times and costs, visit www.heathrobinsonmuseum.org.

25 May-1 September: Heath Robinson Musuem: Tim Lewis: Automata. One of the most popular exhibits in ‘A Curious Turn’, the automata show in 2018, was ‘Mule Make Mule’ by Tim Lewis. This new exhibition will feature a number of Tim’s larger automata and kinetic sculptures selected by the artist and displayed in settings designed by him. Lewis’s sculptures include a variety of machines that react to the people and environment around them. Large scale ‘stroboscopic’ artworks spin and explode with movement and colour. Familiar items such as chairs walk with crutches, and mechanical rabbits, once cuddly, take on a more sinister quality. These works defy easy categorisation but are inspired by the traditions of kinetic art, the development of photography and genetics. The artist’s preliminary drawings and maquettes will also be on display, to provide an insight into Lewis’s distinctive creative process. For opening times and costs, visit www.heathrobinsonmuseum.org.
