MIKE NELSON : LIONHEART
Feb 2 - Jun 3, 2018
Mike Nelson is known for his installations, which often take the form of extended labyrinths; immersive environments that involve the viewer. Lionheart, 1997 consists of junk materials painstakingly collected from specific locations by the artist and assembled to create a fictional drifter's camp, complete with skins, traps, darts, trophies and beer cans.

ARTISTS' STUDIO: LEAH CARLESS
Feb 20 - May 13, 2018
Leah Carless works with sculptures to explore ideas around making and materiality and the emotional qualities we attach to physical objects and processes. Her practice involves the investigation of notions of physicality in contemporary society; in particular, what it might mean to have a fleshy body in a consumer culture saturated by visual imagery.

ARTISTS IN FOCUS
Mar 17 - Dec 2, 2018
The 2018 Collections galleries re-hang focuses on individual artists who each have a distinct body of work within our Permanent Collection. Each of our themed collection rooms will feature multiple works from a single contemporary artist, alongside highlights from the Gallery's renownded Garman Ryan Collection.
