HOLLY GRAHAM, SWEET SWOLLEN
May 8 - Aug 25, 2018
Sweet Swollen is a new commission by Holly Graham. Comprising print and audio, these consider historic links between domestic culinary culture and visual culture within Europe.The works take as their starting point a pair of Meissen porcelain sweetmeat bowls that are currently on display in a collection in the Victoria and Albert Museum. These were made between 1765–75 and would have, at the time of their production, been considered an artisanal, luxury good, symbolizing the wealth and status of their owner. Visually, they each depict turfy mounds which prop up bowls to hold sugar or sweetened dried fruits, which are in turn flanked by caricatured ‘blackamoor’ figures who gesture towards the food products in the bowls in front of them. These are part of a wider tradition of similar figurines that embody, and silently testify to, financial gain through processes of colonial exploitation.

JERWOOD SOLO PRESENTATIONS 2018
Jun 20 - Aug 26, 2018
New works by Rob Crosse, Susie Green and Georgia Horgan presented as three solo presentations at Jerwood Space. Diverse in content and materials, the solo presentations span painting, sculpture, installation, film, and photography, expanding upon the artists’ existing dialogues to position sex, intimacy and desire in a socio-political context.

Chris Alton, Simeon Barclay, Hazel Brill, Flo Brooks, Emma Cousin, Joe Fletcher Orr, Tom Goddard, Ashley Holmes, Lindsey Mendick, Nicole Morris, Milly Peck, Anna Raczynski, Will Sheridan Jr, Rae-Yen Song and Frank Wasser.
A major new survey exhibition presenting new works by 15 early-career artists from across the UK. Survey is the largest review of contemporary art practice in Jerwood Visual Art’s 12 years of programming, spanning a breadth of disciplines. Marking a departure from Jerwood Charitable Foundation’s 17 years of support of the Jerwood Drawing Prize, and coinciding with Frieze London 2018, Survey takes a non-institutional approach to selection with 35 mid-career artists – including Ryan Gander, Andy Holden and Rachel Maclean – nominating the most promising new UK artists working today.
