New York Premiere
Museum of the Moving Image
Saturday 7 May, 3pm
Frith Street gallery is delighted to announce Fiona Tan’s first feature-length film, History’s Future, will have its New York Premiere at the Museum of the Moving Image. Tan’s screenplay, written with renowned film critic Jonathan Romney, stars Mark O’Halloran (Calvary), Denis Lavant (Holy Motors, Beau Travail) and Johanna ter Steege (Spoorloos, Tirza). Part fiction, part documentary and partly an essay probing the world of today, History’s Future is about a man’s odyssey through the turbulence of Europe – and his own spirit.

Transitional Object (PsychoBarn)
Roof Garden Commission
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
19 April – 31 October 2016
Frith Street Gallery is delighted to announce the opening of Cornelia Parker’s Roof Garden Commission at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The installation is the fourth in a series of site-specific commissions for the outdoor space.
In Transitional Object (PsychoBarn), Parker merges two iconic examples of American architecture: the red barn and the infamous mansion on a hill from Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece Psycho. The work meditates on the tension between these iconic structures and subtly suggests how architecture generates conflicting emotional states.
Frith Street Gallery will show important works by Cornelia Parker at Frieze New York, on view at booth C54 from 5-8 May 2016.
Double Take: Drawing and Photography
A two-venue group exhibition at Drawing Room (Tacita Dean) and The Photographer’s Gallery (Anna Barriball), London
14 April – 5 June 2016 (Drawing Room)
15 April – 3 July 2016 (The Photographer’s Gallery)
Double Take: Drawing and Photography is a joint exhibition which explores the ways photography and drawing have been combined, mirrored and contrasted in modern and contemporary practice. This collaboration reveals that the manipulation of materials, whether within the confines of a medium, stretching its limit or borrowing from other media, gives artists passage to new visual languages and forms of expression.
