A Young Man’s Progress is a collaboration between sisters, artist-photographer Maisie Broadhead and fashion designer Bella Newell (Burberry); and Professor Ulinka Rublack, Professor of Early Modern European History. This is an impressive display of five modern photographic recreations – printed to large scale – telling the fictional story of Matthew Smith, a young man from North London, who is obsessed with clothes. The modern photographs are based upon accurate watercolours commissioned between 1520 and 1560 by Matthäus Schwarz, one of the most committed fashion innovators of his time. Schwartz documented his appearance and outfits throughout his life in what is now known as his ‘Book of Clothes’, which included explanations of when and why each outfit was worn.

Maisie Broadhead at University of Brighton Gallery, 7-23 November 2014 by ben mcleavy

Maisie Broadhead: Broadhead Women, University Brighton, November 2014

Maisie Broadhead: Broadhead Women, University Brighton, November 2014

The exhibition by Maisie Broadhead at the University of Brighton Gallery features her recent series of photographs entitled Broadhead’s Women; a collection of studies portraying three generations of women from the artist’s immediate family. Broadhead’s Women reinterprets the recognisable compositional styles of two historical painters – Johannes Vermeer and Vilhelm Hammershøi – and highlights their similar obsession of repeating the narrative of women situated within quiet domestic interiors. By using the visual format of these iconic artists, while making subtle changes, Broadhead offers intimate and timeless portraits of femininity. The artist graduated with a BA Honours in Wood, Metal, Ceramics and Plastics from University of Brighton in 2002. The exhibition was organised to coincide with the artist’s latest commission, Peepers, currently on show at the Royal Pavilion Brighton until 1 March 2015.

Maisie Broadhead creates major installation for Brighton’s Royal Pavilion, 25 October, 2014 – 1 March 2015 by ben mcleavy

We are delighted to announce that gallery artist Maisie Broadhead has won a prize with Brighton’s iconic building, the Royal Pavillion to create an installation in the majestic Music Room. Titled ‘Peepers’, visitor’s will feel like tiny figures in a decadent doll’s house, as a series of photographic light boxes project giant faces peering through the windows.

Maisie plays with a multitude of ideas including the notion of ‘palace outsiders’ versus ‘palace insiders’; and our voyeuristic fascination with peering in at other people’s lives and homes – especially those of celebrities and royals. The work also looks at scale and the history of the architecture of the Pavilion and the lives of its famous inhabitants.

The installation will be unveiled on 25 October 2014 and will be open to the public until March 2015.
