HG Contemporary announces Private, an exhibit by BAFTA and multi-award winning artist Alison Jackson, opening October 25th. This show which features photographs from her latest book by the same name, focuses on the cult of celebrity and will feature 17 of her iconic images. The critically acclaimed Jackson, who has been exhibited at the Tate Modern, the Centre Pompidou and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, creates convincingly realistic work about celebrities doing things in private using professional lookalikes, creating scenarios we have all imagined but never seen before. This time, it is current U.S. election headlines that is the focus of her show, where likeness becomes real and fantasy touches on the believable.
