SAM LAUGHLIN : UNTITLED
Aug 25 - Nov 10, 2018
Sam Laughlin’s (b. 1990) photographic practice is concerned with the state of the natural and manmade world, and our place within it. His photographs focus on patterns of animals’ behaviour in close observation, revealing natural signs and residue that suggests their presence in the landscape. This process allows the viewer to experience intimate and fragile spaces that exclude human presence.
In 2015 Laughlin was invited to create a series of documentary photographs that record the underlying fabric of our new Gallery during the construction process. Untitled records Laughlin’s encounters with temporary situations within the site, some incidental, others he arranged himself as interventions.

Feb 16 - Apr 20, 2019 FINAL WEEK
'Fez: The Royal Scent' is inspired by Anya Lewin's family photographs and public archives. Combining archival research, with fictional recreations, Lewin's film opens up questions about historical, narrative and place. 'Fez: The Royal Scent' will join 'With Heartfelt Gratitude for the Painless Treatment' (2008) and 'Chez Paulette on the Sunset Strip' (2013) to complete Anya Lewin's trilogy of moving image installations, shown here together for first time.

STEFAN GEC : THE SHEPHERD'S WHISTLE
Feb 16 - Apr 27, 2019 FINAL WEEK
'The Shepherd's Whistle' comprises the discovery of strategic cities in the UK, created during the Cold War by Soviet Intelligence. Artist Stefan Gec travelled sections of these routes on a reconditioned M-72 Soviet army motorcycle and sidecar from 1972.
The exhibition includes documentary footage of this journey, and the work calls upon current issues around identity and migration.

ANYA LEWIN: MORE THAN STORIES: A FILM TRILOGY
Feb 16 - May 4, 2019
More than Stories is a trilogy of films inspired by Anya Lewin’s family photographs and stories, and their interconnections with screen history and public archives. Each film has at its heart the haunted memories of Jewish life embedded in a particular story passed down to Lewin by her father.

RESIST: BE MODERN (AGAIN)
May 25 - Jul 20, 2019
Private view Fri May 24 6pm - 8pm
Curated by Alice Maude-Roxby and Stefanie Siebold, this exhibition looks back at revolutionary art, design, performative and written practices of the 1920s and 1930s. Through the lense of contemporary art and design practitioners, the importance and influence of these early avant-garde practices in the present are highlighted. Focusing on a selection of key female practitioners, the exhibition showcases contributions by women of non-formative sexualities and other marginalised producers.
