The Studio Group Commission: Kashif Nadim Chaudry

19 Nov 2016 - 31 May 2017

PLEASE NOTE: After 5 years and more than 2.2 million visits, Turner Contemporary is closed from Monday 9 January to Friday 13 January for some essential repairs and maintenance ready for when it partially re-opens on 14 January. 

Turner Contemporary presents a major new commission, 'The Three Graces' by Kashif Nadim Chaudry for the Sunley Gallery. This commission has been selected and made in collaboration with Turner Contemporary's Studio Group, a group of local artists and makers.

The Studio Group first came together in 2012 to help produce Turner Contemporary's first Sunley Gallery commission, Maria Nepomuceno's Breathing Time (2012). They are working with Turner Contemporary to lead on the commission of a new artwork by Chaudry, working closely with the artist to creatively develop and make the work.

Kashif Nadim Chaudry (born 1976, Nottingham) uses elaborate textiles techniques to create sculptures and installations that explore themes of identity, religion and cultural heritage. The Three Graces is a large-scale installation of three richly decorative monumental figures inspired by triptychs in eastern and western culture.
