Click to enlargeJANE AUSTEN BY THE SEA
Jun 17, 2017 - Jan 8, 2018
This new display will explore Jane Austen’s relationship with coastal towns, and life in Brighton during her time, to mark the bicentenary of her death. It will look at the seaside context of Austen’s plots and paint a picture of the leading resort of Brighton in the early 1800s, when it was a fashionable ‘watering place’ featured in novels like Pride and Prejudice. Although there is no clear evidence that Austen visited Brighton she included it in several of her works, and the display will reassess her relationship with the town in the light of a long-term misunderstanding arising from a hand-written 1799 letter

MUSEUM OF TRANSOLOGY
Jul 20, 2017 - Jun 3, 2018

VOZ RARA RARA RARA VOZ RARA - JAUME FERRETE VAZQUEZ
Nov 30 - Dec 2, 2017 to 12:00am talk/event
Voz Rara Rara Rara is an artist’s research-driven workshop on other political genealogies of voice and listening. It is directed at art workers, activists, students, academics, or any person interested, studying or working with the politics of voice and listening, particularly in relation to technology, body, gender or ‘disabilities’. During the workshop we will work with texts, audiovisual documents and materials drawn from the practices of artists, theorists and activists including Amanda Baggs, Amanda Weidman, Anne Carson, Boris Fridman Mintz, Jonathan Ree, Lawrence Abu Hamdam, Occupy Wall Street, Jérôme Bel or Yes We Fuck among others. We will explore synthetic voices, deaf cultures and sign languages, gender and the body and politics of the voice and listening. Specific case-studies such as the masculinisation of Thatcher’s voice, Bell Lab’s Voice Operator Demonstrator, and the ‘listened voice’ of the Tojolabal people within the Zapatista movement will be examined.
 

 
1 December, 7pm
performance in Minerva Works
‘There are none so deaf’ is a performed reading of a text of the same name, to be published later this year by Q-O2 and Errant Bodies. The text takes its title from a cartoon by Gonzalo Rocha in which the voice of Zapatista Comandanta Esther, at the Mexican Congress, is represented as the plump body of a speech scroll. The cartoon is used as the starting point of a genealogy that goes through deaf culture and sign languages, synthetic voices, the phonograph and the telephone, to present another possible genealogy of the politics of voice and listening.
 
This event is part of VOZ RARA curated by Grand Union Curators-in-Residence Anna Santomauro and Valerio Del Baglivo.
Workshop is open to everyone, but booking is essential.
Free, book tickets here.

ALINA SZAPOCZNIKOW : HUMAN LANDSCAPES
Oct 20, 2017 - Jan 28, 2018
This will be the first UK retrospective of the work of the much-overlooked Polish artist Alina Szapocznikow (1926 - 1973), whose elaborately constructed sculptures remain as powerfully resonant today as when they were first made.
Szapocznikow’s career was cut short by her premature death in 1973 at the age 47 but her work has been reappraised internationally in the last decade. A chronological display will highlight how the artist’s work developed from classically figurative sculptures to her later “awkward objects” which are politically charged and overlaid with Surrealist and Pop Art influences.

Nov 29, 2017 - Jan 20, 2018
Slow Violence introduces work by eight UK-based artists to reconsider the ubiquitous and prevalent threat of climate change.
Working across film, photography, installation and sculpture, the contributing artists challenge us to rethink the prevailing climate change iconography - of melting ice caps or desertification. Rejecting the spectacular and immediate for disasters that are slow moving and long-term, their visual interpretations often draw attention to what is happening closer to home, within our own local environments.
With Ackroyd & Harvey, Adam Chodzko, Emma Critchley, Ellie Harrison, Tom James, Katie Paterson, Michael Pinsky and Thomson & Craighead.

ANNA MOLKSA : THE WEAVERS
Sep 13 - Nov 26, 2017 FINAL WEEK
Polish artist, Anna Molska (b. 1983, Prudnik), explores modernist and socialist utopias through her work, and uses them as a pretext for the analysis of contemporary reality.
 
Molska’s 12 minute film The Weavers/Die Weber (2009) is based on Gerhart Hauptmann’s 1894 play inspired by the 1844 rebellion of Silesian weavers against the poverty of their lives and harsh working conditions. The play is also the subject of a series of prints currently being shown at Ikon that established Käthe Kollwitz’s reputation as a major artistic figure in Germany before the First World War.
