Sep 8, 2018 - Jul 28, 2019
Bluecoat is delighted to be working with artist Serena Korda and Trust New Art, the National Trust’s programme connecting people to places through contemporary art.
Serena Korda works across performance, sound and sculpture to find and highlight ritual in the everyday, which is developed through encounters, conversations and the researching of abandoned histories.
Set in Speke Hall’s ancient woodlands and grounds, The Bell Tree draws on the hall’s hidden history. Korda reconsiders aspects of communion and tradition, including underexplored feminist narratives or ‘herstories’ and alternative histories of folklore and witchcraft. The public commission is at Speke Hall, with a smaller element installed in Bluecoat's garden.
Speke Hall is free to visit with a National Trust Membership.

WAYS OF LEARNING, PROGRAMMED WITH LUCY LOPEZ
Sep 7 - Dec 1, 2018
Ways of Learning foregrounds forms of knowledge production that stem from anecdote, informality and collectivity, in contrast to increasingly marketised formal educational systems.
This project will engage with Grand Union as a site for learning, providing a context for a rich programme of events, artworks and communal sharing of knowledge.
Departing from three key works by artists Alex Martinis Roe, Uriel Orlow and feminist action group Mujeres Públicas, Ways of Learning draws from feminisms, generational alliances and indigenous knowledges, as well as forms of solidarity and allegiance which intersect with queer culture.
Ways of Learning is programmed by Lucy Lopez with Grand Union staff. Lopez is Grand Union’s Curator-in-Residence 2018-19.

Sep 29, 2018 - Jan 1, 2019
Hauser & Wirth Somerset is proud to present its first solo exhibition by Berlinde De Bruyckere. Occupying the Rhoades and Bourgeois galleries, De Bruyckere will present two new bodies of work. The Belgian sculptor embraces a greater level of abstraction, while continuing to deploy her familiar sensitivity for materials. In the first body, wall-mounted works are composed of heavily weathered, semi-decomposed blankets built up in layers, suggesting warmth and protection, but also the vulnerable experiences that lead one to seek shelter. The second, floor-based sculptures, initially resemble piles of blankets, but on closer inspection are revealed to be stacked animal skins. Cast in grey wax, these powerful, organic works combine weight and delicacy to mesmerising effect. Both bodies of work continue to explore the theme of mortality that De Bruyckere has revisited throughout her career.

CELEBRATING 300 YEARS OF THOMAS CHIPPENDALE
Jul 13, 2018 - Feb 25, 2019
2018 marks 300 years since the birth of Yorkshire-born Thomas Chippendale, one of Britain’s most eminent interior designers and cabinet makers.
 
To celebrate this significant anniversary, the gallery is working with one of the finest treasure houses in the North of England, Nostell Priory, a National Trust house with over 100 pieces of Chippendale furniture. The role of artists in influencing interiors will be explored through key loans from both collections and special commissions by contemporary artists.
 
Visitors will see modern and contemporary artworks in Nostell’s historic rooms and the most fashionable furniture of the 18th century within the 21st-century gallery spaces of The Hepworth Wake eld.

THE HEPWORTH PRIZE FOR SCULPTURE
Oct 26, 2018 - Jan 20, 2019

Open to British or UK based artists of any age and at any stage in their career, the £30,000 biennial award celebrates artists who have made a significant contribution to sculpture in its broadest definition.
 
An exhibition of work by the five artists shortlisted for the prize will be presented.

Sep 19 - Nov 18, 2018
'Waiting for the UFOs (a space set between a landscape and a bunch of flowers)'.
Ikon’s Autumn exhibition of new work by New York-based artist Polly Apfelbaum will exemplify an art practice that places emphasis on the essential quality of materials, especially colour and texture, whilst asserting the importance of popular culture and craft activity. Her use of various fabrics – stained and dyed – and more recently glazed ceramics, is beguiling and refreshing in its offerings of simple pleasures. In this way, she subtly assumes a political, and feminist, position, challenging pomposity, notions of entitlement and hierarchies in cultural practice – against “high” fine art – to suggest an egalitarianism in society across the board.

By remaking these works, the pragmatics of reimagining the ‘original’ temporary installation and the significance of ‘site’ are explored.
