The Paris Albums 1900: W.E.B. Du Bois
17 September 2010 – 27 November 2010


This exhibition presents a collection of 200 portraits compiled by W.E.B. Du Bois, the leading black intellectual and civil rights activist, and Thomas J. Calloway, a lawyer and educator for their photographic album untitled Types of American Negroes, Georgia, USA.

Du Bois’ intention was to produce a comprehensive, alternative view of the black subject. At such, it provides insight into the conditions of black culture at the end of the 19th century, only 35 years after the abolition of slavery.

Book your tickets now for the must-see exhibition of 2010.

Gauguin is one of the world's most famous and best-loved artists from the early 20th century. For the first time in the UK in over 50 years, Tate Modern presents an exhibition dedicated to this master French Post-Impressionist, featuring paintings and drawings from around the world. His sumptuous, colourful images of women in Tahiti and beautiful landscape images of Brittany in France are some of the most popular images in Modern art.

Gauguin was the ultimate global traveller, sailing the South Seas, and living in Peru, Martinique, and Paris among other places. This exhibition explores the role of the myths around the man - Gauguin as storyteller, painting himself as a Christ-like figure or even a demon in his own paintings, religious and mythical symbols in his work, and the manipulation of his own artistic identity. It features many of his iconic paintings, including those showing daily village life from the artist's colony of Pont-Aven in Brittany, nude bathers and haystacks in the Breton landscape, and decorative works such as the carved wooden door panels around Gauguin's hut in the Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia.

Miles Davis London Exhibition
7 December – 12 December 2010


A showcase of the last remaining 100 original drawings and oil paintings by Miles Davis, considered by many to be the world’s greatest jazz musicians.

Many of his paintings reflect his well documented fascination with and love of women, together with evocations of African tribal art. This work, since his death, has been largely under wraps with scant exposure for this unique collection.

A rare opportunity to acquire a piece of jazz history.
