Rocket presents a retrospective exhibition of work by the Danish-born London artist Peter Hedegaard (1929–2008). This exhibition has been in preparation for four years and the focus is on a group of large 1970s paintings on canvas which have been hidden from view for the past decades at the artist’s Belsize Park studio. Alongside these substantial canvases will be shown smaller gouaches and screenprints from Hedegaard’s entire career, dating from 1965 until 1976, when he stopped his studio work.
To coincide with this exhibition The Rocket Press is publishing the first monograph on Peter Hedegaard and his work. The main biographical text is by Chantal Condron (Curator, Government Art Collection) who has been researching the artist for the last five years. The preface is by Nigel Prince (Executive Director of Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver).
Peter Hedegaard | retrospective will be open to the public from 23 May to 22 June 2019
