SEVEN KINDS OF MAGIC
Jul 22 - Dec 10, 2017

MAHTAB HUSSAIN : MITTI KA GHAR
May 25, 2018 - Mar 24, 2019
Inspired by traditional Kashmiri mud houses that can still be found in parts of the region, Mahtab Hussain has been working with local communities to construct, furnish and decorate a house within the gallery and to explore ideas of home. Over the coming months, visitors can watch the house develop.

ELIZABETH MAGILL : HEADLAND
Oct 17, 2018 - Jan 20, 2019
Elizabeth Magill is one of her generation's leading painters and this exhibition will present a new body of work. Although predominately living and working in London, Magill's work is redolent of place - and in particular, drawing from her early beginnings in the North of Ireland. Her approach to image making is always experimental, allowing for previous attemps to give way to newer ones to form an unfolding openness.

SARAH TAYLOR SILVERWOOD : DAPHNE
Jan 19 - May 12, 2019
Sarah Taylor Silverwood uses drawing and language as material to produce publications, animation and installation works. Daphne considers the relationship between women and language, taking the ancient Greek myth of Daphne and Apollo as a focus. This early story, which traces Apollo's pursuit of Daphne and her transformation into laurel tree, has been retold over centuries in many different art forms.

RODIN: RETHINKING THE FRAGMENT
Feb 2 - Apr 28, 2019
Linked to the 2018 British Museum exhibition Rodin and the art of ancient Greece, this Spotlight tour from the British Museum brings key national works to three regional galleries across the UK, including The Thinker, from the Burrell Collection, Glasgow. This exhibition introduces Rodin's relationship with classical sculpture, demonstrating the inspiration he found visiting the British Museum and viewing the Parthenon friezes, and his adoption of the fragment as a central component of his oeuvre.
