Solo exhibition

Robert Fitzmaurice : NO EDEN

Greenham Common Control Tower

This exhibition of paintings and mixed media looks back at the social history of the Greenham Common site, especially the former military presence and the peace camp protests of the 1980s. Over the years Robert has developed a variety of figurative and semi-figurative motifs to question ideas about power, gender, childhood and identity. This exhibition advances those themes in the context of the actions taken by the Greenham women to confront patriarchy and challenge militarism. The common was certainly no Eden then but this show offers no safe historical perspective. When leaders with nuclear arsenals have insulted each other with terms like rocket-man and dullard, and the US and Russia have withdrawn from the INF Treaty the same tensions exist now as then, and deserve our attention.

Burys Bank Road, Greenham, Newbury, RG19 8BZ

16th March to 29th May 2019 | Thurs & Fri 10.30-13.30, Sat & Sun 9.30-16.00 and by appointment
