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.

SCULPTURE IN FOCUS
Feb 8 - Dec 1, 2019
To coincide with the 60th anniversary year of Jacob Epstein's death, in 2019 we are celebrating sculpture in all forms throughout our Collections programme. The Sculpture in Focus trail will position a key piece of contemporary sculpture from our Permanent Collection within each of our ten themed rooms, featuring diverse artists including Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Henry Moore, Bob and Roberta Smith and Marcus Taylor, continuing our tradition of making links between historic and contemporary art.

HOME
Apr 13 - Sep 22, 2019
HOME presents a selection of contemporary works exploring themes around home and homeland. The works span the last 60 years and are sourced from the Gallery’s Permanent Collection.

JACOB EPSTEIN: JACOB AND THE ANGEL
May 11 - Sep 29, 2019
As part of our year celebrating sculpture, to mark the 60th anniversary of Jacob Epstein (1880-1959), we are incredibly fortunate to be able to bring this iconic Epstein masterpiece from Tate collection to Walsall for the first time. This loan has been made possible through The Ferryman Project: Sharing Works of Art which is supported by National Lottery players through the Heritage Lottery Fund, the John Ellerman Foundation and Art Fund.

KATHLEEN RYAN
May 24 - Sep 22, 2019
As part of our year celebrating sculpture, we are proud to present the first UK institutional solo exhibition by American sculptor Kathleen Ryan. Ryan composes her sculptural installations in a variety of materials from cast iron and precious stones, to found objects including bowling balls. The artist has a pre-occupation with natural forms, juxtaposed with industrial manufacture, alongside motifs which reference the classical sculptural tradition and the artist's interest in anthropology.
