Dedicated to British artist Shelagh Wakely, spaces between things was published on the occasion of the homonymous exhibition curated by Antoni Malinowski at Richard Saltoun Gallery. The catalogue unravels Wakely’s practice through a series of artist notes, photographs and texts written by fellow artists. It is a testimony to Wakely’s profound influence on the artists of her generation.
Wakely has held exhibitions at the Serpentine Gallery, London (1977), ICA, London (1979) and John Hansard Gallery, Southampton (1982) and recently at the Camden Arts Centre (2014). These shows cemented her reputation as a multifaceted artist: installations, sculptures, drawings and paintings all incorporated across the breadth of her practice.
