A water colour of sunlight on water

A gallery within a semi-detached Barnet house will host a debut exhibition by Scotland-based political scientist and artist Zhang Chi, showcasing a diverse body of work spanning watercolour landscapes, sculpture and Chinese calligraphy.

The exhibition Extra (Ordinary) runs between 13th April and 18th April 2024 and is described by curator Panpan Yang as exploring “the relations between visibility and invisibility, between exhibition and non-exhibition spaces, and between art creation and curation” through calligraphy and watercolour.

The exhibition takes place in Small Gallery, a not-for-project experimental art space in North London.  Created within 1920s semi-detached period house transformed into a gallery, it is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)

Small Gallery is named as such not only because it is literally small but also because ‘small’ sounds like sīmó 斯磨, meaning ‘intimate’ in Chinese.

Small Gallery is only a three-minute walk from Totteridge & Whetstone Station.

Address: 12 Blakeney Close, London N20 9LH

The opening, which takes place on April 13th, includes the artist’s guided tour within the gallery space and must be booked in advance at eventbrite.

Other than its events and openings, Small Gallery runs by appointment only.
