Drawing on personal heritage and fictional future projections, Sophia Al-Maria’s protagonists reflect on the narratives and languages they have inherited as children of various colonial legacies.
Thomas Dane Gallery was established in March 2004 and currently exists in two London gallery spaces and a third space in Naples.
The gallery has developed its distinctive position through:
– A strong commitment to the moving image, both in the production and exhibition of works by Steve McQueen, John Gerrard, Akram Zaatari, Paul Pfeiffer and Bruce Conner.
– Our history of introducing important mid-generation artists from abroad to London – These include Cecily Brown, Albert Oehlen, Glenn Ligon, Dana Schutz, and Arturo Herrera, who now have an established base of museum and collector support in the UK.
– The nurturing and development of new talent – such as Hurvin Anderson, Caragh Thuring, Walead Beshty, Kelley Walker, Ella Kruglyanskaya and Anthea Hamilton.
– A commitment to curatorial experimentation by invited curators.
