Past Exhibition

Max Mara Art Prize for Women
Emma Hart: Mamma Mia!

12 July – 3 September 2017

The Whitechapel Gallery presents a new large-scale installation by London-based artist Emma Hart (b. 1974) for the sixth edition of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women. The commission is the result of the artist’s six month bespoke residency which started in June 2016 and was divided between three Italian cities: Milan, Todi and Faenza.

Mamma Mia! is the culmination of an investigation into pattern, from visual patterns to patterns of psychological behaviour. The work also looks at the design and rupture of pattern and the ruminations in between.

The exhibition travels to Collezione Maramotti in Reggio Emilia on 15 October 2017 and is presented as part of an exhibition of Hart’s new work at Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh in spring 2018.

The Max Mara Art Prize for Women is a collaboration between the Collezione Maramotti, Max Mara and the Whitechapel Gallery.
