War Requiem & Aftermath is a survey of recent work by British artist Maggi Hambling, encompassing painting, sculpture, installation and film.
Over a five-decade career, Maggi Hambling has become one of Britain’s most distinguished artists, consistently irreverent and controversial. She has exhibited extensively: major solo exhibitions include the National Portrait Gallery, Serpentine Gallery, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, Yale Center for British Art in Connecticut and, most recently, her return to the National Gallery, London, in 2014 for her exhibition Maggi Hambling: Walls of Water. In 2003 Hambling’s sculpture Scallop was installed on Aldeburgh Beach in celebration of Benjamin Britten; other public works include A Conversation with Oscar Wilde (1998), The Brixton Heron (2010), and The Winchester Tapestries (2013).
