LIVERPOOL BIENNIAL: THE STOMACH AND THE PORT
Mar 20 - Sep 5, 2021
The 11th edition, The Stomach and the Port, explores notions of the body and ways of connecting with the world. More than 50 international artists have been invited to respond to this theme within the context of Liverpool. A dynamic programme of free exhibitions, performances, screenings and fringe events unfolds over the 15 weeks, shining a light on the city’s vibrant cultural scene.
 
The artists exhibiting at Bluecoat also acknowledge the kinship attachments between humans and nature. Paintings by Jadé Fadojutimi explore how bodies and nature are in constant flux, with our identities continuously being shaped by our environments. Films including Jíibie (2019) by Laura Huertas Millán and Fog Dog (2020) by Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, together with sculptural works by Roland Persson, Kathleen Ryan and André Romão, propose ways in which we belong to the world beyond our physicalboundaries, considering ourselves as nature, not just part of it.

Click to enlargeBETH HORNER : NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
Jul 15 - Aug 5, 2021 FINAL WEEK
Beth Horner (b. 1995, Hitchin) recently graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Painting in 2020, having received a BA in Painting from Wimbledon College of Art in 2017. She is currently a Digswell Arts Fellow and works from her studio in Letchworth Garden City.
 
In her small-scale paintings, familiar suburban settings are transformed into sinister, uncanny dwellings blanketed in mystery and quiet possibility. Personal imagery is compiled, disassembled, and pieced back together in claustrophobic, eerie documentations of domestic life. Intricately rendered fragments lead into areas suggestive of decay and fragility. Plaster strips resemble scabs on the painting’s surface as if a result of intense scrutiny, warping and abstracting spaces once familiar.
 
A foreboding fog obscures the view in ‘Dispersed’ and ‘Waiting in the Car’, whilst in ‘Missing’ a solemn declaration of a lost cat is taped haphazardly to a post barring any identification, switching the iconography from a call to action to a public eulogy.
 
A similar melancholic quality is present in her sculptures which push further into surrealist territory. Rats burst out from cracks in concrete and phone lines dangle, disconnected and limp. These charred and crooked objects are signs pointing to a once maintained society left in disarray. Their forlornness serves to highlight the pockets of activity within the paintings seen through glowing windows and apertures that allude to hidden narratives. Peering outside from the inside and in from the out, viewers are poised to catch onto any abnormal happenings, which are sure to occur in this ghostly town.

SEAN PEARCE : PREFAB
Jul 15 - Aug 8, 2021 FINAL WEEK
Sean Pearce’s practice draws upon a minimalist approach that sits between the boundaries of architecture, sculpture and painting and explores themes of human inhabitance.
Coming from a background in the construction industry Pearce uses the process of the site to inform his sculptural compositions that prompt further questioning of material process and space.
 
Prefab will present Pearce the opportunity to create a series of sculptures and a site specific piece that will be constructed on site and unique to the parameters of the Broadway Gallery.
 
Pearce, born 1984 lives and works in Letchworth Garden City. He is the founder of Eastcheap Space where he runs Project and Studio Spaces. Sean studied at Byam Shaw School of Art Cental Saint Martins.

MARIA MEYER : STRANGE STRANGERS
Jul 15 - Aug 8, 2021 FINAL WEEK
Maria Meyer is a current MFA student at the University of Hertfordshire. Her work explores the role of subjectivity and the way objects are perceived. She is interested in the way meaning, value and emotional potential are imbued by the viewer. Meyer’s practice involves sifting through online/self-created images and found objects, to then place them together, activating their potential to ‘speak’. Through the manipulation, deconstruction and juxtaposition of these found photographs and objects, her work creates new and often ambiguous narratives, leaving the viewer to ascribe their own meaning.
 
Her two-dimensional work has a layered digital aesthetic, imparted by the use of photoshop, leaving clearly visible interventions, in contrast to the usual image manipulation ubiquitous in advertising, that aims to conceal and enhance. This idea of what is hidden in images and objects is a constant theme in Meyer’s work. The hidden meanings, stories and histories of the often mundane things that surround us.
 
The title of the show is taken from philosopher Timothy Morton’s book ‘The Ecological Thought’*. In the book Morton refers to life forms on Earth being ‘strange strangers’, that we are inextricably entangled with. Meyer looks upon objects in the same way, often the more we ‘look’ at objects the more strange they become and our relationships with them even stranger.

ALL IN THE SAME STORM: PANDEMIC PATCHWORK STORIES
May 19 - Aug 30, 2021
Set against the traumatic backdrop of COVID-19 and the resulting need for individuals and communities to support one another through it, the Refugee Buddy Project, Hastings, Rother & Wealden initiated an online version of Stitch for Change, a project that began in late 2019 to bring people together through storytelling and making.
 
They received 95 patchwork squares from people across the community, including those seeking refuge, volunteers, and students from a Hastings-based FE College. This collaboration tells diverse stories of life under the shadow of COVID-19 through hand-stitched patchwork squares that reveal tales of resistance, change, togetherness, isolation, loss and home.
 
The patches, once sewn together, form four large quilts: a people’s history of a pandemic that sits within the long tradition of hand-stitching as a method of narrating individual and collective life under oppressive, unsettling circumstances.

HOLLY HENDRY: INDIFFERENT DEEP
May 19 - Aug 30, 2021
This summer, the De La Warr Pavilion will host two major new projects by artist Holly Hendry addressing subjects that include borders, edges, bodies and machines.
 
Her solo exhibition in the Ground floor gallery, Indifferent Deep, features a host of sculptures situated within an apparently half-eaten landscape, while a major new public artwork, titled Invertebrate, burrows through the building’s rooftop and balconies, emerging on the lawn outside.
 
Holly Hendry imagines the De La Warr Pavilion being chewed up. Almost 100 years ago, in 1923, its architect Erich Mendelsohn spoke about machines and buildings as part of a network of ‘organisms’ that continue to evolve according to human need. Altering in relation to their surroundings, living organisms grow, consume energy and decay: the Pavilion’s position on the coastline is vulnerable due to rising sea levels, and rough sea winds can erode the clean lines of its modern structure. Extending Mendelsohn’s idea, Hendry visualises the De La Warr Pavilion’s ‘body’ becoming porous before dissolving into its surroundings. Invertebrate’s journey will tear holes in the gallery’s walls, revealing the Pavilion’s fragility and making it into a vessel whose leaks and holes cause artworks, the building and its surroundings to appear and disappear from view, while blurring the boundaries between ‘inside’ and ‘outside’.

SOFT BOYS : KIARA MOHAMED, FAUZIYA JOHNSON
May 19 - Aug 29, 2021
“When you’re so used to trauma, actively seeking joy - and basking in it - feels so foreign. But joy is the framework through which we can re-learn the world.” - Kiara Mohamed
 
Kiara Mohamed’s work examines the ways we exist alongside one another and our environment, as well as what happens when we readdress our traumas through moments of radical joy. In his work, joy becomes a political act: a way of bringing meaning, beauty, and value to places that have been damaged by human or natural acts. Kiara’s films champion care and mindfulness and explore how art can allow for transformation, adaptation and healing.
 
Soft Boys is a short film about queer and trans joy, specifically through and within the Somali culture and community. By re-engaging with Somalian traditional dances, cooking practices and garments, Kiara connects with his nomadic ancestors, and to a heritage from which he had always been made to feel excluded. In this solo exhibition, Kiara’s new work highlights how modern concepts of masculinity can be surprisingly conservative, even within the trans community. The experimental documentary questions what it means to be a man by focusing on emotion, empathy and joy.
 
Soft Boys is curated in collaboration with Liverpool-based curator, cultural organiser and artist Fauziya Johnson. Discover more about the artwork, exhibition and the process of making it in a special podcast with Kiara and Fauziya. The discussion between artist and curator will be released in March 2021.

FACT TOGETHER
May 19 - Aug 29, 2021
During 2020, FACT Together created a platform for 10 artists based in the North of England to present work online in response to the financial uncertainty caused by Covid-19 and the temporary closure of galleries and museums across the world.
 
Each of the artists selected created a new work within the theme of The Living Planet, the focus of FACT’s programme for 2020. This programme explores the ways in which wildlife, plantlife and other ecological systems have responded to the impacts of our actions and how we need to approach the natural world, and those who live in it, from a different perspective.
 
FACT Together artists received a grant, plus 3 months of professional development and support from the team at FACT to create artworks from home. Many of these artists had not previously created digital work, and the resulting projects include a podcast, games, short films, social media takeovers, interactive artworks, poetic interventions into digital diaries, workshops and more.
 
In this exhibition, we present a series of images, taken from each of the artworks, as well as a hidden Augmented Reality (AR) layer that can be activated during your visit.

ROSA-JOHAN UDDOH: PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT
May 19 - Aug 29, 2021
Focal Point Gallery is delighted to present the first institutional exhibition of new work by Rosa-Johan Uddoh, an interdisciplinary artist working towards radical self-love, inspired by black feminist practice and writing.
 
‘Practice Makes Perfect’ explores the relationship of childhood education with popular ideas of the British nation, and how this forms British subjects. This develops Uddoh’s practice exploring the effects of ‘black British’ popular culture on self-formation. Responding to the current debates about black history within the National Curriculum and urban space, Uddoh has approached the creation of new work for this exhibition as therapeutic ‘wish fulfilment’ in a time of uncertainty in education and wider racial tension.
 
During Autumn 2020, Rosa-Johan Uddoh worked with Year 8 pupils at Chase Secondary School in Southend-on-Sea to create performance-to-camera videos, developed through a series of workshops that considered the content and format of Uddoh’s written work, WINDRUSH: A TONGUE TWISTER, as a means to express the wishes of the young participants around a diverse curriculum. Investigating the importance of the school experience and ‘rehearsing’ as ‘becoming’ or gaining subjectivity, this exhibition shares a collaborative process of acting on the potential of a dream education, according to the possibilities of the school schedule and the public gallery setting.

SEASIDE MODERN: ART AND LIFE ON THE BEACH
May 27 - Sep 26, 2021
With staycations booming and forecasters predicting a surge in the popularity of traditional seaside resorts, curator James Russell takes a fresh look at the popularity of the British seaside in the first half of the 20th century.
 
Workers took advantage of their newly-gained holidays to flock to the coasts, and young sophisticates cast aside Victorian attitudes to nudity and donned fashionable beachwear. Through their own exploration of the landscapes and inhabitants of the seashore, artists established the British beach as an essential site of the development of Modern British art.
 
This lively exhibition will feature work by major modern British artists including Paul Nash, LS Lowry, Eileen Agar and Laura Knight, as well as advertising posters and archive photographs.

EDUARDO CHILLIDA
Jun 26, 2021 - Jan 3, 2022
One of the foremost Spanish sculptors of the twentieth century, Eduardo Chillida (1924 – 2002) is widely celebrated for his monumental public sculptures and enduring fascination with interconnected shape, space and
organic form. Chillida challenged the constraints of materials such as iron and steel to redefine the language of postwar sculpture, drawing on a deep connection to his native Basque region. Chillida’s public sculptures were
commissioned globally and he travelled extensively to Paris, Greece, Umbria, Tuscany, Rome and Provence, each informing new artistic paths. Hauser & Wirth will present a significant body of sculptural works and drawings
displayed throughout the original farm buildings and surrounding outdoor landscape in Somerset. The exhibition will invite new encounters between Chillida’s work and the unique environment of Hauser & Wirth Somerset,
drawing parallels with the artist’s own vision for Chillida Leku, a public museum and sculpture park created during his lifetime that expanded the relationship between art and nature. Large and medium-sized sculptures ranging
from the illuminated appearance of alabaster, to the raw quality of granite, chamotte clay and iron, will be on view throughout the Threshing Barn, Pigsty and Workshop galleries. The sculptural presentation will be complemented
by a selection of paper works, including suspended Gravitations and figurative drawings verging on abstraction.
 
Hauser & Wirth supported the reopening of Chillida Leku in 2019 in order to share the artist’s life and practice with wider audiences, working closely with Chillida’s family and the local community to preserve the artist’s legacy. This will be the first cultural exchange project of its kind with the museum and the gallery in the UK, including a collaborative education and events programme over an extended six-month period.

A COLLECTION FOR WAKEFIELD
Permanent display (admission free)
Wakefield’s art collection, now cared for by The Hepworth Wakefield, was founded in 1923 with the aim to nurture a public understanding of contemporary art and its relations to modern life. Wakefield Art Gallery gave particular support to emerging local artists Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, acquiring their work early in their careers.
Since opening in 2011, The Hepworth Wakefield has maintained this tradition of supporting artists and championing emerging talent, as well continuing to collect works by the most prominent British artists of the 20th century.
On display are recent acquisitions of work by artists including Wilfred Avery, Alan Reynolds and Jennifer Lee, alongside paintings by Maggi Hambling, Howard Hodgkin, L.S. Lowry and Yorkshire-born artist John Atkinson Grimshaw. A recently conserved sculpture by Kim Lim, is presented in dialogue with a late marble work by Hepworth, highlighting both artists’ interests in relationships between abstract art and nature.

Click to enlargeUNTITLED: ART ON THE CONDITIONS OF OUR TIME
Jun 10 - Oct 3, 2021
This exhibition brings together work by 10 British African diaspora artists with a focus on how their innovative practices ask important questions about some of the most important cultural and political issues of our turbulent times. The exhibition will feature new commissions by Barby Asante, Appau Junior Boakye-Yiadom and NT, as well as new and recent work by Larry Achiampong & David Blandy, Phoebe Boswell, Kimathi Donkor, Evan Ifekoya, Cedar Lewisohn, Harold Offeh and Ima-Abasi Okon. Painting, drawing and printmaking sits alongside performance, video and sound installation.
 
The exhibition title refers to the longstanding art historical convention of leaving artworks ‘untitled’ in order to encourage attention onto the works themselves, and eliminate reliance upon contextual information. Untitled asks viewers to examine the conditions of our time through the prism of Black British artists working today, without reducing the encounter solely to an exploration of Black British identity. By avoiding such over-contextualisation, the exhibition seeks to foreground these artists’ practices and show how they create platforms for audiences to explore the connections between art, culture and society.

JADE MONTSERRAT CONSTELLATIONS: CARE & RESISTANCE
May 19 - Oct 31, 2021
An active research space supporting artist Jade Montserrat in creating new work to be acquired, exhibited and displayed by the Gallery.
 
Jade Montserrat creates works on paper and performances exploring race, the body and language. Over the next 6 months, she will make a major new work which will enter the collection. As part of this process we have created an active research space, showcasing her previous works on paper alongside artworks from the Gallery’s collection. Part gallery and part studio, we also present her notebooks, research, and art materials, giving us a unique insight into her artistic process.
 
Montserrat’s works are hung in conversation with pieces from the collection by Claudette Johnson, Mark Titchner and Ian Hamilton Finlay. These dialogues reveal new stories, expand existing ones, and explore multiple narratives. Montserrat is also interested in the structures of care in institutions, how works of art and people are looked after. Throughout this project we will look at artists from the collection that have empowered themselves and others through their practice. We will use this research to reflect on the importance of care within the field of activism and how care can be an act of resisting silence and oppression.

WHAT IS MANCHESTER ART GALLERY? (AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU?)
May 19 - Dec 26, 2021
And what does it mean to you?
In the first of our gallery spaces to be completely transformed since they were first hung in 2002, we are exploring the gallery itself. Manchester Art Gallery cares for a public collection of over 46,000 objects spanning six centuries of fine art, craft and design, costume and more. It has been collected by purchase, gift and bequest since 1827 up to the present day. It is part of Manchester City Council and funded through public and private money. The objects are collectively owned by the people of Manchester.
Manchester Art Gallery has been shaped by people: the public, artists, politicians, curators, staff, collectors, benefactors and visitors. Every object acquires different values, status and meanings over time. Every object and person has stories to tell.
The significance of a public collection is more than the accumulation of individual objects. Its core purpose is to encourage curiosity in everyone and inspire creativity in all aspects of life. Using the collection helps us better understand ourselves and others. The Gallery is part of the collective cultural soul of our city and it holds Manchester’s cultural wealth in trust for future generations.
A group of staff from across the Gallery have delved into the archives to select objects that reflect its origins as the Royal Manchester Institution, its subsequent history and a range of art and design. We have mixed up works from different times, made in a variety of materials by artists and makers from Manchester and across the world.
We have been asking ourselves the questions below about the gallery, we don’t know all the answers and we invite you to think about them too.
