Something Old, Something New . . . at Fred London
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe is a small but perfectly accomplished group exhibition curated by Kenny Schachter and Fred Mann at Fred London gallery. The show actually ended last Friday so I apologise for the timing of the review. If you missed it you missed a treat.
Bringing together works by Vito Acconci, Dan Coombs, Rachel Harrison, Mary Heilmann, Kadie Salmon and Franz West, this year’s summer show at Fred London was unassuming and yet packed a confident punch.
It was particularly refreshing to be given a breadth of works in different disciplines from artists spanning different career levels which complimented each other so wonderfully.
I loved the delicious and symbolic paintings of female nudes by Dan coombs and found the “confessional diary” of Vito Acconci a fascinating inclusion. We were also treated to rare paintings, and a sculpture by the late Franz West.
