James N Hutchinson: Untitled

James N Hutchinson: Untitled


_Untitled_ is an exhibition by artist and curator James N Hutchinson that will challenge the traditional form of the solo show. Featuring new and recent drawings based on, or directly representing, the work of other artists, the exhibition will suggest that an artist's practice is best examined as a complex set of entanglements with art history and contemporary peer networks.

_Untitled _will also deal with ideas of authenticity by presenting replicas, copies and forgeries that have been selected, commissioned or directly created by Hutchinson. This will include a new set of drawings by Hutchinson that copy photographs of work by other, often well-known artists such as Georgio Morandi, Michelangelo Pistoletto or Marcel Duchamp. Hutchinson's drawings will be presented within a nexus of works by other contemporary artists, and historical works on loan from Leeds Museums and Galleries. Using curatorial – as well as artistic – strategies, this complex display will consider unseen narratives behind, and unintended relations between various artworks, complicating a linear and artist-centric view of art history.

In The Tetley's atrium Hutchinson will present _The Manenberg Tornado_, 2018; a set of 24 detailed  drawings based on amateur botanical paintings by Margaret Stewart. For Hutchinson, these works are a way to consider how artworks grant or deny access to particular narratives, and how other methodologies can be incorporated into art practice to generate wider networks of meaning. A display of archive material relating to Harry Thubron (1915 - 1985) a renowned Leeds educator will also be presented as an invitation to reflect back on the exhibition.

_Untitled_ will open at The Tetley concurrently with Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2019_  _exhibition [] at Leeds Art Gallery. Hutchinson exhibited a video shot in Leeds Art Gallery in Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2001, following his graduation from Leeds Metropolitan University.
