Nov 29, 2017 - Jan 20, 2018
Slow Violence introduces work by eight UK-based artists to reconsider the ubiquitous and prevalent threat of climate change.
Working across film, photography, installation and sculpture, the contributing artists challenge us to rethink the prevailing climate change iconography - of melting ice caps or desertification. Rejecting the spectacular and immediate for disasters that are slow moving and long-term, their visual interpretations often draw attention to what is happening closer to home, within our own local environments.
With Ackroyd & Harvey, Adam Chodzko, Emma Critchley, Ellie Harrison, Tom James, Katie Paterson, Michael Pinsky and Thomson & Craighead.

Colour Snap is a group exhibition exploring the endless ways in which colour shapes our world. Encompassing installation, moving image, painting and textile work by artists Rhys Coren, Jacob Dahlgren, Anna Mac, Anna Ray and Liz West, the exhibition encourages physical, emotional and personal responses to colour.
Colour has a profound effect on us even though we may not be aware of it. Colour represents, more than any other attribute of our visual experience, a place where both physical properties and personal experiences are interwoven in an intimate way. This group exhibition brings together five national and international artists to investigate their playful approaches to colour.
