At The Gherkin


For a few weeks only, Searcy's the club on the top three floors of the Gherkin, is exhibiting a small selection of graphic works by Tom Phillips, including the Humument page prints that have featured in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition almost every year since 1990. If you would like to see the exhibition, and enjoy the breathtaking views across the city, please contact giving at least 48 hours notice and we will arrange admission for you. Searcy's is a members only club. They will allow you in to see the exhibition as guests of the artist but only if you have booked in advance and have confirmation of your booking. Searcy's is open weekdays and Saturday afternoons only.

Those of you unable to visit the Gherkin can view the complete catalogue of Humument page prints online here.

Last Chance To See...A Humument at MassMoCA

For those of you who can be anywhere near 87 Marshall Street, North Adams, Massachusetts this weekend, do get along to see Life's Work, at MassMoCA before it closes on Sunday. 

In Life's Work, curator Denise Markonish has assembled a fascinating display about artists who have projects that continue over decades. The exhibition features at it's heart, A Humument, Tom Phillips's treated Victorian novel. Pages from the original novel (A Human Document by W.H. Mallock), published 1892, are shown alongside over 700 pages treated by Phillips with gouache, collage, cut up, etc., from the earliest created in 1966 to the most recent, completed in the past few months. A unique opportunity to see in its entirety, a work spanning nearly 50 years. Don't miss your chance.
