Marlborough Contemporary is pleased to present Juicy, a solo exhibition of new works by American artist Charlie Roberts.

Appropriating its title from Notorious B.I.G’s 1994 debut single, Juicy fuses elements of hip-hop subculture with myriad art history influences – from Byzantine iconography to Matisse, via folk art and comic books – representing the artist’s freestyle approach to high and low culture.

Featuring some 200 gouaches on paper – hung Salon-style – the exhibition at Marlborough Contemporary will mark a departure for the gallery, with Juicy reimagining the space as a ‘pop-up shop’. In keeping with the artist’s practice and ethos – making artwork both affordable and accessible – once purchased each piece will be taken off the wall and replaced with a new one, ensuring the exhibition is in a constant state of flux.

Private view: 24 November 2016, 6-8 pm
