Private View: Jason Larkin, Past Perfect
16 November, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Jason Larkin, Castillo de San Carlos de la Cabaña (Havana, Cuba), 2016
Centred around questions of authenticity and the representation of collective histories, Past Perfect (2008 - 2016), is a new series of photographs by British photographer Jason Larkin, highlighting the visual presentation of war and conflict within public museums around the world.
With their vast access to knowledge, today’s museums have become our modern-day cathedrals, not only concerned with historic moments, but also with ideas; notions of what the world is, and how it should be framed. They play an important, and often unquestioned role in constructing ideologies and interpreting cultural identities.
Please join us on Thursday 16th November from 6-8 PM for the Private View of Jason Larkin's exhibition Past Perfect. Also opening in the downstairs gallery, Nadav Kander's exhibition Dark Line - The Thames Estuary.
