The Platform Graduate Award 2020 presents the work of 12 artists launching their artistic careers after leaving University.
Part of a regional initiative led by CVAN South East, Platform aims to support emerging talent at a key moment of transition, and for this year’s graduates, many of whom have not shown their work in the usual degree show setting, this opportunity feels more critical than ever.
This year’s selected artists are Louise Hall and Evie Redwood (Arts University Bournemouth), Chloe Davies and Daniel Martirossian (University of Chichester), Megan Georgia Smith and Kayleigh Pyner (Solent University, Southampton), Caitlin Jackson and Ellen Ball (UCA Farnham), Caitlin Holford and Katie Novell (University of Portsmouth), and Emma Siân Davies and Maryam Zahra Kazimi (Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton).

NEW ART BLUECOAT
Mar 13 - Nov 1, 2020
Our Vide space is hosting exhibitions about Bluecoat’s long history as an arts centre, the first in the UK. Formalised in 1927 with the establishment of Bluecoat Society of Arts, this followed two decades of activities organised by a group of artists, the Sandon Studios Society, who had moved into the building in 1907.
The exhibitions, performances, commissions and residencies represented here reflect the support and promotion of new and emerging art by the arts centre over several decades.
This includes open submission exhibitions and survey's of new work, particularly by local artists; first shows by students and recent graduates; early career opportunities for artists who went on to wider success; exhibitions reflecting new tendencies in art from abroad; and early presentations by well-known artists like Yoko Ono and US musician Captain Beefheart, whose first exhibition of paintings was at Bluecoat.
On display are posters of exhibitions and events, photographs of gallery installations and performances, and printed material relating to Bluecoat programmes including exhibition brochures and invitation cards.
The exhibition continues upstairs with a video documenting a selection of events from the1960s to 2008 and posters from exhibitions by women artists who have shown at Bluecoat. A heritage display along the ground floor corridor by the Vide also features past arts programmes. Bluecoat’s arts history is revealed on its archive website mybluecoat.org.uk

Jul 30 - Nov 1, 2020
Pattern Buffer explores the potential of the gallery space to create a restorative environment. Relaxing film works combine with specially selected plants and comfortable seating to create a welcoming setting focused on the wellbeing of the visitor.
 
The exhibition features an alternative mindfulness guide; hairdressing as video art, and plants which survive from moisture in the air. The grid of the Holodeck, a device from Star Trek (The Next Generation) covers the gallery floor and walls, inviting participants to engage with different fantasy environments.

JONATHAN BALDOCK: FACECRIME
Jul 30 - Nov 1, 2020
The main installation contains a landscape of ceramic columns inspired by cuneiform-inscribed tablets - an early system of writing - dating from 2500BC. Baldock’s version presents an alternative history of clay as a tool of communication; his ceramic columns feature expressive faces, emoji symbols and make audible groans, whistles and chuckles through concealed speakers. The columns are also adorned with weaving, basketry and glass drawn from different eras of labour, folklore and storytelling like an archeological find from a parallel universe.

Jul 25 - Oct 17, 2020
Our Plastic Ocean, by international award- winning photographer Mandy Barker, addressing the current global crisis of marine plastic pollution will be the first online show opened by Brighton Museum & Art Gallery - oceanblues.brightonmuseums.org/
 
The show will be on display as part of the new Oceans Blue website launched by the museum dedicated to exploring the environmental threats to our oceans, the importance of research into our seas and some of the Sussex environmental heroes and organisations dedicated to supporting them.
 
Coinciding with National Marine Week 2020, Our Plastic Ocean show will be available to be viewed online only for 12 weeks. The exhibition was to have been on show in Brighton Museum but following the closure of the venue following the lockdown, it has been moved online.
 
Photographer Barker collects debris from shorelines across the world and transforms them into powerful and captivating images. At first glance, her images are reminiscent of sea creatures and corals suspended in a dark void beneath the sea, but closer inspection reveals a more disturbing reality.

MARC BAUER : MAL ȆTRE / PERFORMANCE
Feb 1 - Nov 1, 2020
Marc Bauer’s Mal Être / Performance is a new body of work commissioned jointly by Drawing Room and De La Warr Pavilion and is the artist’s first solo exhibition in a UK public gallery.
Bauer’s chosen medium is drawing which he uses here to make small and large scale works on paper, a wall drawing and an animation.
Mal Ȇtre / Performance features the motif of people on boats throughout history, from ancient Greece to contemporary media footage. All of the works are drawn in graphite, and images range from those inspired by fifteenth-century Catholic ex-voto paintings, to Théodore Géricault’s The Raft of the Medusa, up to Aquarius, the boat that rescued migrants in the Mediterranean Sea in 2018. Using the slow and cumulative process of drawing and erasing, Bauer’s project brings the past into the present in his investigation of humanity.

ZADIE XA : CHILD OF MAGOHALMI AND THE ECHOES OF CREATION
Feb 1 - Nov 1, 2020
Showcasing a major new multimedia project, Zadie Xa creates a sub-aquatic marine environment, inviting audiences to enter into an immersive world by way of atmospheric lighting, surround-sound, large-scale video projections, sculptures and costumes.
Xa brings together imagined and learned Korean folklore, transforming diasporic knowledge into new realities. Within her immersive world, she presents an origin story inspired by Korean creation myths, centred on the giant goddess Grandmother Mago (Magohalmi). Exploring the passing down of ancestral knowledge through the matrilineal social structures that are based on the separation of responsibilities between male and female deities in the creation of the universe, the work confronts the goddesses’ shift in cultural status over time, from central to marginal.

LAUREN GODFREY : CLOUDY, PARTNER
Aug 5 - Nov 1, 2020
Cloudy, Partner is a new mural commission by artist Lauren Godfrey for the Rooftop Foyer.
Responding to the architecture of the De La Warr Pavilion, the painted work continues Godfrey’s engagement with the Pavilion and Bexhill beyond the end of her exhibition Group Hat in September 2019. The mural combines structural elements of the Pavilion with a motif inspired by a 1933 embroidered fabric by the Italian designer and architect Gio Ponti, as well as Godfrey’s signature colourful and imaginative style.
Lauren Godfrey’s work spans sculpture, performance, film and printmaking, often in collaborative interactive work. Her reference points – which include hieroglyphs, Seinfeld, Nigella Lawson and Henri Matisse – are both accessible and humorous, creating works that fuse high- and low-brow, past and present, crude and tasteful.

THOMAS MAILAENDER : SPLENDID ISOLATION
Oct 15 - Nov 28, 2020
As we emerge from lockdown Departure Lounge has invited multi-media artist Thomas Mailaender to curate a collection of images made, collected or found by people during the long months of isolation. Known for appropriating images from the internet and his own huge archive of curious, creative conjunctions, Thomas Mailaender’s work teems with humour and originality.
As part of this process, and inspired by the Coronavirus lockdown, Departure Lounge’s local and international audience are invited to contribute their impressions of isolation, or images of what they have done during the lockdown, and the creative play that can emerge from boredom and enforced inactivity.
What have you been doing during this unprecedented period of inactivity, and what have you collected, photographed or found as you’ve trawled the internet, sorted through old files, cleared the garage, or developed a new drainage scheme for your garden. Please send us your pictures – the most interesting of which will be integrated into Thomas’ Installation in Departure Lounge’s windows, or website while the gallery remains closed to the public

Click to enlargeEMMA TALBOT : WHEN SCREENS BREAK
Oct 2 - Dec 12, 2020
Emma Talbot’s new large-scale commission ‘When Screens Break’ forecasts a layered sci-fi narrative, imagining a future world where technology has moved beyond the control of humans and operates as a distant but authoritarian force.
This years winner of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women imagines a future where our current technology is obsolete, and humans look back at the early 21st century with nostalgia, reminiscing about the shared intimacy and relationships between human and device. This speculative narrative reveals itself across 40 metres of silk, an immersive architectural painting within which questions are raised and explored around what makes us human, and how we engage with intimacy via hand-held technology. Developed prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, and originally planned to be exhibited during what became the lockdown period, Talbot’s narrative has a visionary, prescient quality that also considers our own physicality and presence in the future, and the ongoing balance of hope and angst that accompanies our being in the world.

LUKE ROUTLEDGE : STRANGE MATTER
Oct 2 - Dec 12, 2020
‘Strange Matter’ is the first introduction into the constructed universe of Birmingham based artist Luke Routledge. A meeting of absurd figurative sculptures map out the beginnings of an invented folklore – a sculptural invitation to explore the territory of another society.
The title of the exhibition, ‘Strange Matter‘, is a term borrowed from particle physics. Proposed to be created inside neutron stars, strange matter is formed within the remains of collapsed giant stars. It is hypothesised that it could either be the most stable matter in the universe, capable of teaching us how the universe first began or it could infect everything it comes into contact with, converting all ordinary matter in its path into strange matter.
Routledge’s works draw upon myriad references to assemble a cast of inhabitants within a possible world. Brought to life by moving animatronic elements the figures weave an ambiguous narrative, caught somewhere between sense and nonsense.

AND SAY THE ANIMAL RESPONDED?
Aug 14 - Dec 13, 2020
If we listened to animals, what would we hear? What might they say to us about their world?
 
As we emerge from this period of isolation, and refocus our attention on a rapidly changing climate, And Say the Animal Responded? creates a space for the voice of the animal that we have gained greater awareness of during this time.
 
Tune in to a choir of whales and dolphins ‘singing’ to an artist’s undersea instrument, encounter the quiet presence of a wolf pack filmed from above, meet a family of chimps startled by a camera in their rainforest home, listen to a live colony of leafcutter ants turned scratch DJs, witness a computer-generated re-creation of an extinct rhino glitch in and out of existence. This immersive exhibition brings you face to face with animals from around the world through film, art and creative technology.
 
And Say the Animal Responded? presents work by six international artists who have captured animal voices through the use of human technology. Explore the galleries for free as we question the relationship between human and animal. If we put the animal’s perspective before that of the human, what would they tell us about the current state of the planet - and what can we learn from this?
 
Featuring artists Ariel Guzik (Mexico), Amalia Pica (Argentina/UK) with Rafael Ortega (Mexico), Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg (UK), Demelza Kooij (Netherlands/UK) and Kuai Shen (Ecuador), the exhibition takes its title from philosopher Jacques Derrida’s essay of the same name.

AUGMENTED EMPATHY : KEIKEN, SAKEEMA CROOK AND RYAN VAUTIER
Sep 3 - Dec 13, 2020
As part of The Living Planet, our year-long programme which focuses on the non-human, and deals with themes such as climate change, ecology, and communication, the artist collective Keiken have developed a multi-layered participatory project called Augmented Empathy. Developed as a new collaborative commission with FACT’s Learning team, the artists designed a project which mirrors the way we, and specifically young people, learn through the navigation of social media.
Keiken are a cross-dimensional collaborative practice (Hana Omori, Isabel Ramos and Tanya Cruz), whose practice merges the physical with the digital by building online worlds and augmented realities. In Augmented Empathy, the collective explores the subversion of existing tools -in this case, Instagram filters- and how social media can be used as a space for exchange and artistic creation. The result was 4 Instagram filters which can be downloaded and used by anyone.

ROSIE GRACE WARD : ARROWCUT SLAB (COLLIDING NOT THRIVING)
Jul 11 - Oct 13, 2020
Focal Point Gallery is pleased to present a new temporary public artwork by Rosie Grace Ward consisting of two new site specific works for its annual railway bridge commission on Southend High Street.
Drawing inspiration from Southend’s Anglo Saxon history, each panel – one decorative, one figurative, depict both sides of an intricately carved slab of stone. Digitalised images have been created from Ward’s hand painted watercolours, which heavily reference a fusion of Celtic stone monuments, bas relief carvings and medieval drawings and manuscripts.

‘To Dream Effectively’ is a group exhibition across Focal Point Gallery, Big Screen Southend and Southend High Street that brings together international artists whose work offers cautionary reflections on a future that can still be influenced by how we dream it to be. It takes inspiration from the ground-breaking novels of science-fiction writer Ursula K Le. Guin (1929 to 2018), in particular The Lathe of Heaven, 1971, which was strongly influenced by the principles of Taoism (an ancient philosophical and religious belief of Chinese origin that emphasises living in harmony with ‘the Way’).

Extended until 31 Oct 2020
Grand Union (Birmingham) and Humber Street Gallery (Hull) have co-commissioned ‘sister’ exhibitions of new work by Jamie Crewe comprising videos, sculptures and writing – Love & Solidarity in Birmingham, and Solidarity & Love in Hull. This new body of work takes inspiration from Radclyffe Hall’s 1928 novel The Well of Loneliness, using the ambiguous tensions it stirs to think about repulsive kinships: with places, cultures, histories, communities, and individuals.

BENNY NEMEROFSKY RAMSAY : ÉTUDES
Sep 23, 2020 - Jan 1, 2021
Études is not an online exhibition, but instead a signpost somewhere between; an event by the artist Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay that would have, but has not, taken place; an indication of ongoing working with material and subjective intimacy; a making-public of this unfinished process.
The études (studies) presented here have emerged from an ongoing preoccupation with floral & botanical matter as a material and subject for art works by Nemerofsky. This research, still in the process of unfolding, foregrounds intimate and bodily-led explorations of arrangement, juxtaposition, advance and withdrawal.
Several video works are presented as études, with their presence here being an intention for a future live event, developed with curator Seán Elder for Grand Union. The works presented here have been developed through Nemerofsky’s residency at Fondation Fiminco (Romainville, FR).

THE LIGHTS
Sep 23 - Dec 19, 2020
THE LIGHTS takes it’s title from the shorthand for how the Blackpool Illuminations are referred to locally and the exhibition is timed to coincide with, and contribute to the town’s annual season of light, which has been extended this year.
Over the last five years, Grundy Art Gallery has developed a special interest in artists who use light as a material within their work. In addition to an annual light themed exhibition each autumn, Grundy has also been adding light based art works to it’s collection.
Including neon, moving image, photography, digital drawing and sculpture, THE LIGHTS offers a dynamic showcase for this exciting strand of Grundy’s collection and provides an opportunity to view all of Grundy’s light based art works together for the first time.
The exhibition, which takes places across all ground floor galleries, will include world renowned contemporary artist Tracey Emin; one of the originators of 1960’s Conceptual art, Joseph Kosuth and five new works* which have been brought into the collection this year, by Turner Prize nominees Mark Titchner (2006) and Andrea Büttner (2017); British sculptor and disability rights activist, Tony Heaton OBE; prize-winning film-maker Chris Paul Daniels and emerging artist Amy Ellison.
These new acquisitions join other works from the Grundy Collection by Ian Whittlesea, Noel Clueit, Maeve Rendle, Shigenobu Yoshida and Martin Creed.

Oct 3, 2020 - Jan 10, 2021
This Autumn, Hauser & Wirth Somerset will present a significant body of early work by pioneering New York-based artist Lee Lozano (1930–1999). Created in 1962–1963, the paintings and drawings of this series use airplanes as a central image and can be considered as examples of the artist’s passionate exploration of creative energy in its purist form. Iris Müller-Westermann writes about the series as ‘Metaphors for a kind of thought energy – for ideas circulating, being heard and taken in, processed, produced, and sent out again. One could regard these airplane pictures as investigations of the raw material necessary for every sort of creative activity. After all, everything starts with an idea, including art.’ Lozano’s works from the early 1960s are stylistically distinct, admired for their furious physicality, unapologetic confidence and urgent energy. They exploit the boundaries between body and machine, eroticism and aggression, to powerful effect. A passionate and shrewd observer of urban culture, Lozano created work in response to the constraints imposed by systems constituted via dynamics of gender, power, money, politics, and institutions such as marriage and maternity.

NICOLE EISENMAN : WHERE I WAS IT SHALL BE
Oct 3, 2020 - Jan 10, 2021
Hauser & Wirth will present their inaugural exhibition with Nicole Eisenman in Somerset this Autumn, bringing together a diverse multidisciplinary language through mixed media works on paper, sculpture and painting. Having established herself as a central figure in American painting throughout the 90s, Eisenman has since expanded her practice into the third dimension with international acclaim in recent years. This exhibition presents the fluid transition and interchangeable approach Eisenman takes to sculptural 2D image making, painting and larger-scale installations. Her oeuvre is distinctive in its emphasis upon the allegorical and its confident combination of autobiographical elements, with historical and fictional narratives that draw attention to contemporary socio-political conflicts.

Extended to 1 Nov 2020 (ticketed)
This exhibition explores the parallel and intersecting paths of these two great artists of the 20th century.
The photographer Bill Brandt and the sculptor Henry Moore first met during the Second World War, when they both created images of civilians sheltering from the Blitz in the London Underground.
This major exhibition brings together over 200 works highlighting the relationships between sculpture, photography, drawing and collage revealed through Brandt and Moore’s shared interests in the subjects and themes of labour, society, industry, the British landscape and the human body. Moore’s celebrated Reclining Figure sculptures and Brandt’s well-known photographs of coal miners and their families in Durham and Yorkshire are on display, alongside rare original colour transparencies by Brandt, and Moore’s little-known photo collages.
£7.50 / £5 / FREE for Members, Wakefield Residents & Under 16s

MATERIAL ENCOUNTERS
On display until Nov 2020
Works on display including those by Anthony Caro, Naum Gabo, Anthea Hamilton and Bridget Riley reveal the wide variety of materials that artists have used to express sculptural ideas.
Selected from Wakefield’s art collection, the works explore abstraction and figuration and bring together materials as diverse as bronze, wax, perspex, paper and rice cakes.

BARBARA HEPWORTH
Permanent display (admission free)
This exhibition is a survey of Hepworth’s extraordinary career, from early work produced while growing up in Wakefield, to the iconic stringed sculptures and large-scale carvings made towards the end of her life.

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.

WHAT IS MANCHESTER ART GALLERY? (AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU?)
Aug 20, 2020 - 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.

Sep 11 - Nov 1, 2020
Featuring over 130 artists across five world class gallery spaces, MK Calling is MK Gallery’s first open call submission exhibition in the majorly developed and extended building that reopened in March 2019. The exhibition will showcase a range of established and up and coming artists, very much celebrating what is happening today in contemporary art.
MK Calling will be showcasing the most dynamic work being made today including work by Royal Academicians, and alumni of The British Art Show, John Moores Painting Prize and New Contemporaries.
The show features numerous pieces that address and challenge many contemporary issues such as the environment and the political climate, as well as a number of playful and performance works. With the exhibition taking place in the new town of Milton Keynes and with a third of artists local to the area, a lot of the work also looks at cities and architecture.
