ANDREW GILLESPIE : ANTI-SCRAPE
Feb 3 - Apr 23, 2017
For his solo exhibition at The New Art Gallery Walsall, he has created a new constellation of objects; an urban drift of materials and allusions to everyday experience.

Aug 11 - Nov 19, 2017
Barbara Nicholls’ monumental watercolour works emerge by manipulating the behaviour of pigment in ever-increasing quantities of water. They have associations with geological forms touching on collective memories of the experience of natural spaces, of the landscape and of the body.

LEGACIES : JMW TURNER AND CONTEMPORARY ART PRACTICE
Sep 22, 2017 - Jan 14, 2018
A master of history, landscape and marine painting, Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) challenged accepted conventions in art, often shocking his contemporaries with his techniques and candid portrayal of the modern world. Legacies will consider the impact of JMW Turner through the lens of contemporary art, highlighting the ongoing relevance of his work for artists practising today.
 
Tate is home to the largest collection of works by Turner. Legacies will present a selection of paintings, sketchbooks, diagrams and works on paper from the Turner Bequest, alongside existing work by contemporary artists who have made work after Turner or evoke typically Turnerian subjects in their work. Dorothy Cross and Jonathan Wright have been specially commissioned by The New Art Gallery Walsall to produce a new work each in response to Turner’s art.

ADAM GRÜNING : ARTISTS' STUDIO
Oct 17 - Dec 17, 2017
His still-life photographs refer to idealised home and office interiors and the stock imagery he encounters in his design day job. Grüning is interested in modes of display and the often incongruous way in which objects are paired in commercial imagery to suggest particular narratives and lifestyles. His works re-appropriate and subvert such images, highlighting the gap between digital adn real life environments.
