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.

ANDREW TIFT : IMMORTALISE
May 25 - Sep 2, 2018
Andrew Tift is a figurative artist specialising in portraiture. For this major solo exhibition, Andrew will present a range of paintings, drawings, photographs and sketchbooks which combine his love of portraiture with more recent experimental works.

MAHTAB HUSSAIN: GOING BACK HOME TO WHERE I CAME FROM
May 25 - Sep 2, 2018
Mahtab Hussain has developed an artistic practice which reflects on ideas of homeland, race, identity and cultural difference. This exhibition presents a powerful and poetic reflection on ideas of home; of belonging and displacement. It also represents a deeply emotional personal journey of discovery and offers a revealing insight into the people and landscape of Kashmire.

GRACE A WILLIAMS : INTERMISSION
