Critics Consensus

Exhibition flouts convention with its untrained stars and impressionistic narrative; thankfully, writer-director Joanna Hogg ties it all together into an intimate, beautifully shot drama.

Movie Info

EXHIBITION depicts a married, middle-aged couple (D and H, respectively played by Viv Albertine and Liam Gillick), both artists, who live in a beautiful modernist house in London's Chelsea. Also designed and built by an artist, the house (i.e. the third character in the film's triangle) is at once a labyrinth, a refuge, a prison and a psychological battleground. As D and H slowly arrive at the painful decision to sell the place, they begin a process of saying goodbye to their shared history under the same roof. (C) Kino Lorber

Critic Reviews for Exhibition

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (10)

  • Hogg maintains a probing detachment and a cold intimacy. As befits the title, she presents her subjects like specimens in an exhibit, with a rigorously structured style that is non-judgmental and unsparing.

  • If "Exhibition" lacks conventionally developed characters and dialogue, it is visually enthralling.

  • A film that's all airy, abstract pretentiousness.

  • Hogg's third feature magnifies the relationship between people and the spaces they live in with a keen eye for the way the two tend to blend together.

  • The importance of Location, Location, Location in the British psyche cannot be overemphasised. Joanna Hogg's brilliantly austere and intimate portrait of a marriage recognises this.

  • The whole thing teeters between very boring and completely fascinating.
