Somewhere in Between

March 8, 2018-  August 27, 2018 |  Free
Art, science and somewhere in between. Four collaborations between artists and scientists give shape to intangible ideas. Somewhere in Between brings together the work of four contemporary artists: Martina Amati, Daria Martin, Maria McKinney and John Walter. Each collaborated with scientists to explore ideas that are vital to human life – ideas about our food sources, our senses, our sexual health and the limitations of our bodies.   Experience these four immersive installations at Wellcome Collection, exhibited together for the first time, which reveal the hidden connections and systems that lie between and beneath us.

Marianna Simnett

March 22, 2018-  July 8, 2018 |  Free
British artist Marianna Simnett creates fable-like film, performance, sound and light installations that examine the sense of intimacy yet anxious unfamiliarity we experience with our own bodies. She particularly focuses on the means we deploy to control these bodies, both technological and cultural. The exhibition presents a group of recent work from the Zabludowicz Collection: three films The Udder (2014), Blood (2015), and Blue Roses (2016) – installed as a trilogy for the first time – alongside a sound and light installation Faint with Light (2016).   Simnett’s films unfold from multiple, occasionally impossible perspectives (from within dreams or personifying...

Hanae Wilke ‘Close Quarters’

April 13, 2018-  June 24, 2018 |  Free
A new body of work by London based artist Hanae Wilke. Informed by her surroundings and starting with an observation, Wilke constructs sculptures and installations from industrial materials such as metal, pipes, brackets, fibreglass and resin. These works borrow qualities from existing and familiar objects, structures, forms, and systems that are often overlooked. Through material investigations, Wilke explores weight, tactility, texture, gesture and colour and the ways in which they act with and within space. Drawing on the typography and language of narrowboats, Wilke examines alternative modes of living and habitable structures that could fit into speculative future narratives. These...

Join Pump House Gallery for the exhibition of ‘We are having a little flirt’, a group exhibition offering perspectives on the uncertainty of attraction and desire.

Discover Brice’s take on the longstanding art-historical tradition of the female nude. Lisa Brice is a South-African born, London-based artist. On show at Tate for the first time, Brice’s work includes large-scale new and recent paintings which address the longstanding art-historical tradition of the female nude. Shown alongside sketches, drawings and studies, her paintings recast female subjects from art historical paintings, photographs and the media into new environments, imbuing them with a newfound sense of self possession.   Brice captures women in moments of down-time, engaged in a private world, performing everyday rituals. Her work reverses the traditional portrayal of...

Nicholas Crombach The End of the Chase

May 3, 2018-  June 30, 2018 |  Free
Crombach has created a series works that examine the cultural significance and the complex issues percolating around hunting and sporting traditions in the 21st century. Crombach’s Fetch (2018) refers to the mythology of Diana and Actaeon as he transforms the lofty and classical story of metamorphoses into a game of fetch in the local park, constructed on a grand scale. In Fetch (2018), Crombach creates a hybrid between the art historical imagery from paintings of hounds hunting stags with the flashy colours and synthetic materials of modern day dog chew toys. The sculpture is displayed alongside a variety of chew...

British Summer Time (BST)

May 9, 2018-  June 23, 2018 |  Free
Half mocking, half nostalgic British Summer Time, distills the allure and revulsion of that particularly British sea-side summer experience. From the conservative old folks of Bournemouth and the Isle of White to the wonderfully excruciating pleasures of Blackpool, South Shields, and Margate, there is the tinny echo of faded Little Britain. Surrounded by half wrought tokens of a forgotten empire, OAP’s wheeze to the poolside in sweat-drenched shirts, just about surviving the sudden rain only to have ‘that nice foreign nurse’ resuscitate them as the sun beats down at midday and it all becomes too much. We are an island...

May 10, 2018-  June 23, 2018 |  Free
Hales Gallery is delighted to announce Paintings from the 1960s, a solo exhibition of works by Anwar Jalal Shemza (1928 – 85). The exhibition focuses on paintings from early-mid 1960s, created in the decade following Shemza’s relocation from Pakistan to the UK.

This move marked a significant change in the artist’s life and practice. Astonished...
