FRANK BRANGWYN’S PRINTS
Jun 5 - Sep 30, 2018
Frank Brangwyn (1867–1956) achieved early fame as a printmaker, and made over 1,000 original prints in his lifetime. His work is characterised by an intense sympathy for the daily labour of humanity. During the 1930s he gave away much of his work, and the Royal Pavilion & Museums holds one of the country’s largest collections of prints by Brangwyn. This display of etchings and lithographs from the Fine Art collection captures the range of his work.

GET OUT AND PUSH!
May 12 - Aug 19, 2018
As a precursor to the British New Wave, Free Cinema marked a broader attitudinal shift in cinema and the arts against the exclusion of whole areas of life. Through a supporting programme of film and events, the exhibition will examine how the movement reflects the present challenges and methods of resistance employed by filmmakers and artists alike. This will include a temporary cinema space built into gallery one.
 
Gallery two will house an installation presentation of artist Ed Webb-Ingall's new community video project originally commissioned by Studio Voltaire. 'We Have Rather Been Invaded' looks at the impact and legacy of Section 28 and a historic ‘lesbian invasion’ of the BBC six o’clock news on May 23rd 1988. Comprised of archival material and interviews, the video examines the role of activism and our understanding of this piece of legislation 30 years on which prohibited local authorities in England and Wales from promoting homosexuality.

INHERITED PREMISES : RAMI GEORGE & TAKO TAAL
May 25 - Aug 3, 2018
Inherited Premises is a two-person show by artists Rami George and Tako Taal that seeks to articulate both personal and national narratives, situating itself between moments of political rupture and socio-familial histories.
 
Making reference to domesticity, language and ideas of nationhood, both artists explore their cultural and social lineages in relation to broader understandings of political traumas including conflict, war and imperialism.
 
As George moves towards a meditation on the spectre of Civil War within the Lebanese diaspora, Taal looks to linguistic boundaries and folklore in her understandings of matrilineal relations in Gambian culture.
 
Curated by Associate Curator Seán Elder.

LEE MILLER : AND SURREALISM IN BRITAIN
Jun 22 - Oct 7, 2018
Lee Miller (1907 – 1977) first entered the world of photography in New York as a model in Vogue in the 1920s. In 1929 she moved to Paris and worked with Man Ray, establishing her own studio and becoming part of the Surrealist milieu. A rich strand of Surrealist practice emerged in Britain in the 1930s and developed in the immediate pre-war period, during which Miller moved to London.
 
This exhibition will explore the creative networks between artists in the UK in the 1930s and 40s through Miller’s lens. Miller’s photographs of and collaborations with Surrealists working in the UK, including Eileen Agar, Leonora Carrington, Max Ernst and René Magritte will be presented alongside their own paintings and sculptures.
 
It will also focus on Miller’s own practice and how she turned her Surrealist eye across disciplines to the worlds of fashion and journalism, revealing and revelling in the strange and extraordinary.

VIVIANE SASSEN: HOT MIRROR
Jun 22 - Oct 7, 2018
Echoing the career of Lee Miller, internationally renowned artist Viviane Sassen (b. 1972) straddles the fashion and fine art worlds. Central to this exhibition is the inspiration of Surrealism, a movement Sassen recognises as one of her earliest artistic influences, seen in the uncanny shadows, fragmented bodies and dreamlike landscapes of her work.
 
Hot Mirror will bring together photographs from several collections made over the last ten years, including the celebrated Flamboya and Parasomnia series (2013), shown alongside new photographs and collages, to create image-poems that draw on the Surrealist strategies of collage to offer new and unexpected juxtapositions.
 
As well as an overview of Sassen’s artistic practice, the exhibition will present a new version of her immersive film installation, Totem.

CELEBRATING 300 YEARS OF THOMAS CHIPPENDALE
Jul 13, 2018 - Feb 25, 2019
2018 marks 300 years since the birth of Yorkshire-born Thomas Chippendale, one of Britain’s most eminent interior designers and cabinet makers.
 
To celebrate this significant anniversary, the gallery is working with one of the finest treasure houses in the North of England, Nostell Priory, a National Trust house with over 100 pieces of Chippendale furniture. The role of artists in influencing interiors will be explored through key loans from both collections and special commissions by contemporary artists.
 
Visitors will see modern and contemporary artworks in Nostell’s historic rooms and the most fashionable furniture of the 18th century within the 21st-century gallery spaces of The Hepworth Wake eld.

FRANCIS ALžS : 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.

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.
