Tickets availableRut Blees Luxemburg's work shows the public spaces of the city, where the ambitions and unexpected sensual elaborations of the 'modern project' are revealed. She brings to light the overlooked, the dismissed and the unforeseen in her immersive and vertiginous compositions. Her photographic projects were shot in London, Paris, Dakar and New York.

Rut Blees Luxemburg's photographs have been exhibited recently at the Pompidou Centre, Paris; the Royal Academy, London and LaBoral, Spain. Her work is held in the collections of the Tate Modern, Victoria & Albert Museum and CNAP.
Her monograph 'Commonsensual' is published by Black Dog Publishing, London and is a comprehensive survey of the artist's work; including her collaborative projects such as the opera 'Liebeslied/My Suicides' and her public art installations 'Caliban Towers' and 'Piccadilly's Peccadilloes'. Her collaborative forays into music and urban culture have led to celebrated album covers such as The Streets' 'Original Pirate Material'.
Rut Blees Luxemburg's latest work from New York, 'BLACK SUNRISE', was recently shown at Galerie Dominique Fiat in Paris.
This is a child/baby friendly event organised in conjunction with artist Martina Mullaney, founder of Enemies of Good Art.
