GAVIN TURK: Who What When Where How and Why

at Newport Street Gallery, London

23 November 2016 - 19 March 2017

Who What When Where How and Why spans twenty-six years of the artist's career and features over seventy works. The exhibition - which includes new and previously unexhibited work - is on display throughout Newport Street's six gallery spaces.


Since emerging onto the London art scene in the early 90s, Turk has dedicated much of his career to exploring notions of authorship, identity and value. Engaging in the central modernist debate initiated by Marcel Duchamp, Turk's varied work appropriates both familiar everyday objects and instantly recognisable artworks by towering figures of twentieth-century art such as Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock and Giorgio de Chirico.
