Empire of the son

This autumn sees the arrival of ‘Empire’, an exciting sculpture show from Marcus Kleinfeld at the Hannah Barry Gallery in Peckham, South London. You may know Kleinfeld’s work from the ‘Let There Be Sculpture!’ show held in the grounds of Roche Court in Wiltshire. He’s also exhibited at Barry’s acclaimed Peckham Pavilion exhibition at the 53rd Venice Biennale.

This Berlin-born, Goldsmiths graduate’s work makes grand gestures. Just look at the vibrant and expressive paintings shown here. This show promises to be no different – his is a piercing social commentary on status and order. For the first month of the show, the artist’s supporting paintings and drawings will be on display in the secondary Hannah Barry space on Bond Street.

‘Empire’ is at The Hannah Barry Gallery until November 24th. The Bond Street gallery is open Monday – Saturday 10am – 6pm and Peckham 12pm – 6pm Friday & Saturday, or by appointment
