This exhibition is presented in memory of Michael Stanley, Curator at Ikon before becoming Director of Milton Keynes Gallery and then Modern Art Oxford, who tragically died in 2012. Co-curated with David Austen and George Shaw and structured loosely on Rex Warner’s war-time novel The Aerodrome (1941), a book that made a great impression on Stanley, it includes many of the artists he worked with.

A group show, The Aerodrome fills Ikon’s premises entirely and is organised with Stanley as a presiding spirit; a celebration of an extraordinary vitality that continues to make a deep and lasting impression.
