BRIDGES FOR COMMUNITIES : THE PATH LEADS TO BRISTOL
Dec 4, 2020 - Feb 28, 2021
Arnolfini approached Bridges for Communities to create a local response to Hassan Hajjaj’s exhibition The Path, and Bridges in turn invited a number of people involved in their work to take part in a photoshoot exploring themes of culture, identity and story. These images were captured by Bridges volunteers and graphic designers Safia and Samira Belhaj, sisters whose own journey has included life in Libya, the United States and now Bristol.
Thursday to Sunday, 12pm to 5pm daily. Exhibition slots are free, bookable in advance. Arnolfini asks all visitors to wear a face covering.

Sep 18 - Dec 20, 2020
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).

SEAN EDWARDS : UNDO THINGS UNDONE
Dec 5, 2020 - Feb 21, 2021
Private view Sat Dec 5 6pm - 9pm
The artist’s internationally acclaimed presentation for Wales at the 2019 Venice Biennale was a poetic inquiry into place, politics and class, intertwined with personal histories. As the show tours and evolves, Sean Edwards (b. Cardiff 1980) has extended the exhibition to present new works at Bluecoat.
 
Known for his sculptural approach to the everyday, Edwards often begins with seemingly unrelated elements linked by autobiographical and cultural connections. These range from the 1970s shopping centre near the housing estate where he grew up, to Springsteen’s album Nebraska, a Welsh quilting group, snooker, tabloid newspapers, and various found materials.

MARC BAUER : MAL ȆTRE / PERFORMANCE
Feb 1 - Nov 29, 2020 FINAL WEEK
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.

ALL IN THE SAME STORM : PANDEMIC PATCHWORK STORIES
Dec 12, 2020 - Feb 21, 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. Over 70 people from refugee backgrounds and their allies met regularly over the internet to share their experiences and find a collective voice. They told their 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.

ROCK AGAINST RACISM : MILITANT ENTERTAINMENT 1976-82
Dec 12, 2020 - May 9, 2021
A major new exhibition to celebrate Rock Against Racism (RAR), featuring a new commission by artist Larry Achiampong created in response to the sounds, visuals and ethos of RAR and contributions from Bass Culture.
The exhibition will showcase the punky RAR aesthetic through posters, photography, badges, stickers, leaflets, letters from young fans across the world, as well as striking graphics from the legendary RAR fanzine, Temporary Hoarding. Temporary Hoarding’s articles and interviews range from abortion rights to anti-colonial struggle in Zimbabwe: a platform for discussing multiple forms of oppression.
Rock Against Racism harnessed the power of the imagination – thrilling music, vibrant design and witty, subversive polemic – along with a DIY ethos which expected everyone to do their own thing as well as being part of a huge collective effort. Hundreds of small local bands played RAR clubs and gigs, as well as big names like Aswad, the Au Pairs, Buzzcocks, The Clash, Misty in Roots, The Specials, Gang of Four, Steel Pulse, Tom Robinson Band and X-Ray Spex. The result was a movement which raised the consciousness of a generation.

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.

Click to enlargeAND SAY THE ANIMAL RESPONDED?
Aug 14, 2020 - Feb 14, 2021
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.
 
FACT is supported using public funding by Arts Council England and is funded by Liverpool City Council.

AUGMENTED EMPATHY : KEIKEN, SAKEEMA CROOK AND RYAN VAUTIER
Sep 3, 2020 - Feb 14, 2021
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.

‘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’).

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.

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.

extended to April 2021
The artist Chad McCail has spent three years developing a single monumental new work specifically for Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art. This exhibition presents an enormous three-dimensional cityscape that fills the entire gallery and which we enter into. Like any city, it contains all of the institutions we are familiar as part of our journey from the cradle to the grave: schools, factories, offices= and workplaces, hospitals, military sites, and beyond. The city is more like a toyscape than architectural model, being created on an alarming scale that is a little too close to our own for comfort. And in McCail’s work, everything is transfigured into a mythical space, in which life as we know it is lived out at one remove – and realistic scenarios seem closer to science-fiction than fact. Here, a war is being waged between gigantic creatures that are fighting not only for control of the resources of this city, but for its soul.

JIMMY ROBERT : AKIMBO
Sep 26, 2020 - Jan 3, 2021
This major survey of the Guadeloupe-born French artist Jimmy Robert (b.1975) brings together sculpture, installation, film, works on paper and performance in the largest-ever presentation of Robert’s work in the UK.
The exhibition explores emergent themes in Robert’s work, including performance and gesture, the politics of spectatorship, appropriation, and the personal and political body, along with their racialised and gendered readings. By drawing together work from 2002 to the present day, the exhibition will bring into focus the intertextuality that has shaped Robert’s work through the myriad quotations and allusions that he deploys. From American choreographer Yvonne Rainer to the Suriname-born Dutch conceptualist Stanley Brouwn, these references act as points of critical departure, which are complicated through shifts in context to create a layered set of reflections, mirrored across time, place and identities.
