De Pont Museum, Tilburg, Netherlands
29 Apr – 27 Aug 2017
This exhibition is Fiona Banner’s first major presentation in the Netherlands, and comprises sculpture, video, photography, and bookworks. In the vast industrial space of De Pont’s main gallery, Banner creates a theatrical mise-en-scène where towering helicopter rotor blades and re-purposed military place parts become the unknowing cast. The exhibition’s title Runway (AW17) refers to a runway as a space of performance, evoking the architecture of fashion shows, as well as a space associated with aircraft.
24 September 2016 – 8 January 2017
De La Warr Pavillion, Bexhill on Sea
Fiona Banner presents an immersive installation exploring her ongoing interest in language and its limitations. The exhibition, which takes place both inside and outside of the gallery, is a play on digital vs. material experiences.
Banner continues her Full Stop sculptures – a sequence of full stops from typefaces blown up to human scale, previously produced in polystyrene and bronze – reformed here as large inflatables. They will be presented as a series of happenings around the Pavilion. Full stops also feature in a vast window installation spanning the full length of the gallery, making illusory sculptural interventions, or Buoys, on the seascape beyond.
An exhibition curated by Cornelia Parker
The Foundling Museum, London
27 May – 4 September 2016
Foundling Fellow Cornelia Parker has invited over sixty outstanding artists, writers, and musicians from a range of creative disciplines to respond to the theme of ‘found’, reflecting on the Museum’s heritage.
Combining new and existing work with found objects kept for their significance, this major exhibition unfolds throughout the Museum, interacting with historic works in the Collection and with each other. The exhibition also features work by Frith Street Gallery artists Polly Apfelbaum, Fiona Banner, Tacita Dean, and Dorothy Cross (pictured here).
Scroll Down And Keep Scrolling
24 March – 29 May 2016
Private View: Wednesday 23 March 8-10pm
Scroll Down And Keep Scrolling is the most comprehensive exhibition of Fiona Banner’s work to date, re-presenting key early projects alongside recent and unseen works that span a period of 25 years. Throughout the exhibition Banner revisits her work with intensity and humour. The exhibition travels from Ikon Gallery, Birmingham.
To accompany Scroll Down And Keep Scrolling Fiona Banner has produced a major new artist’s book which focuses on related material from her personal archive. It takes the material form of a large directory, over 800 pages long and typeset in a font designed by the artist especially for this project, titled Font. The book is available for a special exhibition price of €30 at Kunsthalle Nürnberg, and Font is available to download free from www.fionabanner.com
