Produced by the Whitechapel Gallery
Lake 9 was produced for the ‘This is Tomorrow’ exhibition 2010 at the Whitechapel Gallery, a retrospective of its celebrated exhibition with the same name in 1956. Gili produced this screenprint in response to a work in that exhibition, Richard Hamilton’s Just What is it That Makes Today’s Homes so Different, so Appealing? The original exhibition brought groups of different practitioners together. Artists worked alongside architects and designers. Similarly Gili has used the landscape designs of Burle Marx the 1960s Brazilian Landscape artist for the inspiration for his swirling patterns within this colourful print.
