Conflicts of an Urban Age exhibition

June 25, 2018-  October 19, 2018 |  Free
Conflicts of an Urban Age highlights the spatial and social consequences of dramatic urban growth in cities across the world between 1990 and 2015.

ARTIST ROOMS: JENNY HOLZER

July 23, 2018-  July 31, 2019 |  Free
American artist Jenny Holzer presents statements that can provoke strong responses. Whether encountered on city streets or in art galleries, Jenny Holzer’s work asks us to consider the words and messages that surround us. Her art takes many forms, including stone benches, projections, signs, posters, paintings, plaques and textiles. Words are central to her work, whether pasted on a wall, flickering from an electronic sign, carved in granite or stitched in wool.   Early in her career, Holzer delivered messages on posters and T-shirts so they would be seen in everyday places rather than in museums and galleries. Her work...

How to sell death to the Living

September 6, 2018-  October 27, 2018 |  Free
Frances Wilks ‘How To Sell Death to the Living’ looks at a world dominated by large corporations, consumerism and the all pervasive materialism where men’s success is measured by the shine and speed of their cars. Frances Wilks confronts the male dominance of formula 1 by implanting herself within the work, replacing a man in almost every picture to challenge a media that traditionally excludes women. She utilises the lack of female appearances in Formula 1 to question gender notions and explore new possibilities for the traditional representation of masculinity.   Her paintings are reminiscent of early Marlboro, Ferrari and...

Based in Tokyo, Izumi (b. 1976, Nara, Japan) is one of Japan’s leading artists working with multimedia and collaborative practice.
