Coleman Project Space is delighted to announce the solo exhibition of this year’s summer residency artist Adam Boyd. Since graduating from the Slade School of Art, London, last year, Boyd has continued to find form for fleeting or unlikely moments, mined from the real world, digital environments and the intersection of both. This sense of the ephemeral and multi-dimensional is amplified by his choice of materials and processes: textile works that extend from the wall into the room, craft into conceptual art.

Coleman Project Space celebrates its 21st anniversary next year. We are proud to announce the start of our celebrations with Whorlbane, a solo exhibition by the gallery’s founder and director Frances Coleman.  The title of the exhibition has folkloric and anthropologic connotations, meaning fairy stone or hipbone. Frances has travelled extensively and this group of sculptures and works on paper offers a symbolic journey through a variety of geographies: from Scotland to Mexico, via London, her current home.

Coleman Projects is pleased to present Unnamed Saints, Lara Smithson’s first solo exhibition in London. It marks the culmination of work and research begun during her time as Bridget Riley Fellow at the British School Rome (2021/22) and coincides with her residency at St John’s College Oxford. Smithson’s focus is on the contradictions that link health, ritual, theology, divine and political power; how these have and continue to shape the human condition. The exhibition is comprised of two parts, a central film work anchored by a reworking of her installation ‘Detritus’, originally formulated in Rome, along with prints and drawings that also feature in the film.

Coleman Projects is delighted to announce the first exhibition of the 2023 programme, Just Like That, curated by Theo Ellison. This exhibition explores that strange disconnect and digs into the role of humour within art; the relationship between irony and sincerity, the influence of comedy on video and performance art, the commonalities and differences between humour and art-world humour, and how it operates within and between self-contained artworks.
