Hobson’s Choice – Jeff Keen at Kate MacGarry

May I urge you all to go and see the new exhibition that has just opened at Kate MacGarry gallery, which provides the opportunity to become acquainted with one of the most significant – and underappreciated – British artist-filmmakers of the post-war period, Jeff Keen, who sadly died last year.

This is a great show which offers much food for thought, not least of all of the enduring relevance of the representation of the female form in art and society – but visit soon, as the show closes in a week!
