RICHARD POUSETTE-DART
Oct 23, 2018 - Jan 6, 2019
This Autumn visit Kettle's Yard for a unique opportunity to see the paintings, drawings, sculptures and photographs of American artist Richard Pousette-Dart. Pousette-Dart worked in New York in the 1940s where he created beautiful, layered paintings as well as experimenting with photography and sculpture.
 
A key figure of Abstract Expressionism, which transformed American art in the post-war years, Pousette-Dart's contemporaries included Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman and Willem de Kooning. This is the first solo UK exhibition of Richard Pousette-Dart. Jim Ede, creator of Kettle's Yard, met Pousette-Dart in New York in 1940 and thereafter the pair began a long-lasting written correspondence. Kettle's Yard is the only public institution in the UK to hold works by the artist.

Sep 15 - Nov 4, 2018
The most real thing includes artists who have previously shown at Roche Court alongside those who will be new to the gallery’s audience, including several artists from a studio textile background. Together, their innovations and ideas engage the full spectrum of fibre-based materials and beyond, from processes such as loom weaving, quilting, knitting, stitching and dying; experiments with technology, fabrication and thread; and textiles which have been painted, manufactured, cast and obliterated; incorporated into performance, large scale sculpture, and self-portraiture. The textile component in these works is specific and loaded with intent, crucially serving to introduce, or locate content and together raise questions about the relationship between the functional and non-functional.

JOHN KIPPIN: BASED ON A TRUE STORY
Jun 29 - Sep 23, 2018 FINAL WEEK
Based on a True Story surveys forty years of making art in public by John Kippin, a central figure in the emergence of photography as an independent art form in the UK from the 1970s and 1980s through to the present day. The exhibition, and the 344pp publication that accompany it, bringing together contributions from nine leading scholars and curators in the field, including the Director of The Photographers‘ Gallery, Brett Rogers. Each of the nine contributors has selected works from Kippin’s forty-year archive to provide
new insights into his way of seeing the world through a lens. Kippin’s photographic artwork has contributed to debates about the nature of post-industrial landscapes, national and regional identity, forgotten spaces, and the power of the state and commerce to reshape the world. Since the 1980s, Kippin has created billboards for public spaces that intervene in the social realm directly – countering the messages of advertising with counter-cultural propositions, and questions.

Click to enlargeDAN HOLDSWORTH: CONTINUOUS TOPOGRAPHY
Oct 26, 2018 - Jan 6, 2019
Private view Thu Oct 25 6pm - 8pm
Since 1996, the English artist-photographer Dan Holdsworth has explored the “extreme” territories that characterize humans’ changing relationship to the ‘natural’ world in the Anthropocene. Since 2012, the artist has worked alongside academic geologists to map the exact contours of Alpine glaciers and rock formations, by using drones, lasers, photography, and high-end software ordinarily employed by the military and climate scientists. The result is the series Continuous Topography, consisting of images created from millions of points marked in space, each a millimetre-perfect registration of the precise contours of a rapidly changing landscape. This landscape is the Argientière glacier in the Alps. Indeed between the recording of the landscape, and its presentation as artworks made to be conserved in perpetuity, the landscape has already begun to change beyond recognition.

Camil will be presenting new commissions including a usable hammock made out of discarded jeans sewn together, creating intimate and social spaces within the gallery.
 
The exhibition also features Camil’s ceramic masks, inspired by jewellery display busts and Carl Jung’s concept of persona – our public mask or public image – and a newly commissioned video produced in collaboration with writer Gabriela Jauregui.

Tai Shani presents her first major solo exhibition in a public gallery, presenting the culmination of her ongoing project Dark Continent, which includes an immersive installation in The Tetley’s atrium, film works, posters and a selection of artworks drawn together by Shani.
 
Over the last four years Tai Shani has been developing a body of work that takes Christine de Pizan’s 1405 proto-feminist text The Book of the City of Ladies as its starting point. Pizan created an allegorical city of notable women drawn from a medieval conception of history, where fact, fiction and myth are blurred. Characters from fiction live side by side with female historical figures, collectively making an early case for gender equality.

EXCHANGES
Mar 24, 2018 - Apr 1, 2019
Exchanges sets art and artists together, sometimes in harmony, sometimes in opposition – always with insight and intention.
Works by Gillian Wearing, William Hogarth and Louise Bourgious and Tracey Emin encourage dialogue about expectations of female behavior. Rebecca Warren and Hayley Tompkins elevate discarded objects to the status of art and challenge our ideas about what should be shown in museums. While Simon Patterson, Jitish Kallat, Roni Horn and Stephen Willats consider how we make order out of a disordered world.
Over the next year some of this art will be exchanged for our most recent acquisitions activating new dialogues between the works displayed.

SEAN SCULLY : INSIDE OUTSIDE
Sep 29, 2018 - Jan 6, 2019
Exploring concepts of landscape and abstraction with human experience, the exhibition unites sculpture with important recent paintings on aluminium and linen, together with works on paper. Drawing out ideas pertinent to the singularity of YSP and its landscape, this is a poetic, robust experience that embraces the Park’s topography and Scully’s exceptional vigour, as well as his belief that in life and art there is perpetual discovery.
 
The exhibition presents an artist at the height of his powers. Aged 72, it is evident that there is no curtailment of Scully’s energy, drive and vision. Keenly aware of the labour that dominated the lives of his mining family, Scully’s practice is one of great rigour and toil, his output prodigious. For YSP he will make new painting and sculpture – resolutely contemporary works that will integrate an inclination towards geometry with the romantic sincerity of landscape painting in the historical tradition.
