British Museum, London
8 September 2016 - 29 January 2017, Room 90

Hambling is perhaps best known for her compelling portraits, paintings of the sea, and her public sculpture which is celebrated and controversial. Less familiar, but equally significant, are her dynamic and sensuous works on paper. Forging an immediate and powerful connection with the subject being drawn, the concept of 'touch' pervades these works, distilling the themes of life and death that underscore her art. The exhibition presents an important survey of works on paper that traces the artist's engagement with drawing throughout her career, including work from the British Museum's collection, loans from the National Portrait Gallery and Tate, and rarely seen work from private collections and the artist's studio.

A comprehensively illustrated book, the first to focus specifically on the range and impact of Hambling's works on paper is also published by Lund Humphries to coincide with the exhibition.

Maggi Hambling: War Requiem & Aftermath
Inigo Rooms, Somerset House, London
4 March 2015–31 May 2015

War Requiem & Aftermath was an exhibition of new and earlier work by Maggi Hambling, who has established a reputation over the last four decades as one of Britain’s most significant and controversial artists. In a practice that encompasses painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking and installation, she has consistently eluded easy categorisation. Probing the extremes of experience, her work continues to move, seduce and challenge.

Maggi Hambling: Walls of Water
The National Gallery, London
26 November 2014—15 February 2015
Room 1, Free Entry

Maggi Hambling, the first National Gallery Artist in Residence (1980–81), has established a reputation over the last four decades as one of Britain’s most significant and controversial painters and sculptors. This autumn she returns to exhibit at Trafalgar Square for the first time in almost 35 years with a brand new series of paintings – Walls of Water.

Hambling brings rare intensity and energy to her timeless medium, continually advancing the language of oil paint. The waves, poised between animation and disintegration, speak at a fundamental level of the cycle of life and death: flickering ghosts of people and animals appear and disappear within them.
