Portée par trois moments forts – le temps de l'abolition de l'esclavage (1794-1848), le temps de la Nouvelle peinture (Manet, Bazille, Degas, Cézanne) et le temps des premières avant-gardes du XXe siècle – cette exposition propose un nouveau regard sur un sujet trop longtemps négligé : la contribution importante de personnes et de personnalités noires à l'histoire des arts.
Le choix d'un titre au singulier, malgré la diversité des représentations, cherche à souligner les différentes significations du terme "modèle", qui peut aussi bien se comprendre comme "modèle d'artiste" que comme figure exemplaire. Femmes et hommes dits de couleur, ils sont nombreux à avoir croisé la trajectoire des artistes et à avoir tissé des relations avec eux. Qui sont-ils, ces grands oubliés du récit de la modernité Autant de personnes auxquelles nous avons tenté de redonner un nom, une histoire, et une visibilité.

I could act stupid and caption this photo as "Monday already" but actually this sculpture from Henri Vidal is showing the first son of the first couple (Adam and Eve) after killing his own brother. In comparison to that the perspective of going to work tomorrow is not that bad #sculpture #art #henrividal #paris #vsco #learningeveryday #mood
Since it’s Sunday I’ve picked an ecclesiatical subject
The Austin Friar remembers the Augustinian Friary based in the City of London (just northeast of where the Bank of England is now). It was founded sometime in the 1260s by Humphrey de Bohun the Constable of England in his return from the crusades.
By 1350 the Friary covered 5.5 acres and was a popular recipient for donations and bequests from the aristocracy which didn’t hurt their expansion plans. At its peak the Friary was the largest Augustinian community in England. It had a church, two cloisters, a cemetery, and even its own prison. Its church was huge; only 2 metres shorter than Canterbury Cathedral.
The Friary also owned plenty of houses which it leased to secular tenants including Thomas Cromwell and the Dutch philosopher and theologian Erasmus (who did a runner without paying his bill).
Ironically Thomas Cromwell was responsible for the Friary’s downfall. He began the English Reformation movement which led to the dissolution of the Monasteries in 1538, including the Austin Friary. Its land was sold off and in 1550 part of the church was given over to the London Dutch community for their own religious services.
This figure of a friar is set into the wall of Austin Friars House which stands on the site of the Friary’s cemetery. I’ve used a wider shot since some over privileged city boy with a sharpie has seen fit to give the eyes pupils which is rather creepy in close up. I haven’t found any information about the sculptor but “T. Metcalfe 1989” is inscribed on the figure’s base.
Location: Austin Friars House, 2-6 Austin Friars, EC2N 2HD

Not Yet Titled, 2, 2019,
(found solidified molten aluminium, concrete, hand-bent steel rod, recycled engine oil).
Number two in a series of five - found remnants of broken ladders burnt in a rubbish fire. This work is placed at the centre of the installation.
“Humanity and non-humanity have always performed an intricate dance with each other. There has never been a time when human agency was anything other than an interfolding network of humanity and non-humanity; today this mingling has become harder to ignore.” Jane Bennett - Vibrant Matter, p.31.
