Eileen Agar @ Whitechapel Gallery

19 May 2021 - 29 August 2021

Whether dancing on the rooftops in Paris, sharing ideas with Pablo Picasso, or gathering starfish on the beaches of Cornwall, Eileen Agar (b.1899 Buenos Aires – d.1991 London) transformed the everyday into the extraordinary. Her unique style nimbly spanned painting, collage, photography and sculpture, even ceremonial hats.  Combining order and chaos, Agar’s work fuses vivid abstraction with imagery from classical art, the natural world, and sexual pleasure.

This definitive retrospective, charts her ground-breaking career from the 1920s to the 1990s in the exhibition Angel of Anarchy.
