SOFIA HULTÉN : HERE’S THE ANSWER, WHAT’S THE QUESTION
Sep 13 - Nov 26, 2017
The most comprehensive exhibition to date by Berlin-based artist Sofia Hultén (b. 1972 Stockholm): Here’s the Answer, What’s the Question. A judicious selection of sculptures, installations and films, the exhibition conveys an ongoing preoccupation with the nature of the material world and the way we navigate it through time.

FRANCIS ALľS : KNOTS’N DUST
Jun 20 - Sep 9, 2018
Curated by Marie Muracciole.
Organised by the Beirut Art Center, the exhibition is an outcome of Al˙s’ long-term interest in current affairs in the Middle East and his frequent travelling to that part of the world, especially Iraq and Afghanistan. Featuring new work in a mix of animation, drawing, film, painting and photography, the exhibition is a reflection on the notion of turbulence, from simple instability to chaos, from a meteorological phenomenon to bigger geopolitical pictures, from a simple knot in the hair to an ascending spiral. Knots represent links and bonds, as well as resistance and binding.

Jul 4 - Sep 9, 2018
Ikon shows the first UK exhibition of work by renowned Czech artist Vladimír Kokolia. A combination of new and recent paintings, plus drawings and installations, the show exemplifies an intensely experimental attitude that distils abstraction from everyday experience.

YOUNG BIRMINGHAM ARTISTS
Jul 11 - Aug 19, 2018
Before it opened in 1965, the young artists who founded Ikon were often showing their work at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in its premises on New Street. To coincide with the launch of the Medicine Bakery & Gallery in this beautiful Victorian venue, works by these artists and a number of their contemporaries feature in an exhibition that revisits Ikon’s origins. Including Peter Berry, Jesse Bruton, Trevor Denning, Robert Groves, Sylvani Merilion, David Prentice, Dinah Prentice, John Salt and Pamela Scott Wilkie.
