SURVEY
Oct 3 - Dec 16, 2018
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.

Oct 4, 2018 7:00pm - 9:00pm talk/event
Good To Us is a new live presentation by Ashley Holmes. This work has developed out of a written adaptation of Dope, a poem by American writer, music critic and poet, Amiri Baraka (previously known as LeRoi Jones and Imamu Amear Baraka). In the original work, Baraka takes on the persona of a Black preacher giving a sermon. In an erratic, humorous and satirical manner, the speaker convinces his audience to believe that it ‘musta been the devil” responsible for all the problems confronting Black people throughout history’. The sermon acts as a parody, and is referenced by Holmes as a way to consider how it is possible to confront voyeuristic cultures within ‘raciology’ – a discourse that assumes certain stereotypes, prejudices, images and identities. Good To Us, presented as a performance consisting of new moving-image works and an audio soundtrack, has been informed by Holmes’ recent research that attempts to dissect the complexities of what occurs when a collective ideology is challenged and/or put at risk.
