Feb 9 - Apr 22, 2018 FINAL WEEK
In The City of Lost Times is Pakistani artist Mahbub Jokhio’s first solo show in the UK. Fascinated with public spaces that have a very private dimension, Jokhio’s work has recently focussed on graveyards in Pakistan. Graveyards in Pakistan are frequently seen as spaces solely for the dead, and are not often visited beyond funerals and burials. However, Mahbub Jokhio suggests they should be places where both the living and the dead can co-exis.

Madiha Aijaz's first solo show in the UK centres around the public libraries of Karachi. Aijaz sees these spaces as a lens to view the changing landscape of Pakistan’s most populous city Karachi. The central film, These Silences Are All the Words, 2017, focuses on the Bedil Library and how the librarians and the library’s users reflect on the city outside the library’s walls and the shift of language from Urdu to English. Aijaz works with photography, film and fiction, exploring how pleasure and entertainment are experienced in public spaces.

Private view Thu May 3 6pm - 8pm
During Material Environments, The Tetley will become a site not just for the display of artwork but of live production, experiment, making and participation. Five artists have been invited to work across the gallery’s spaces, to experiment with ideas of physical and psychological transformation. The resulting works, which engage with subjects ranging from social media, botany and chemical science to architecture and music, will grow and evolve over the course of the exhibition, operating as installations, workshops or laboratories. Taking as its starting point an interest in the process of artistic research and production, Material Environments makes this process visible for the audience to see, experience and be involved in.
