BEYOND THE FATIGUED EYE
Jan 23 - Mar 30, 2017
Arnolfini’s galleries will largely break with the convention of presenting an unchanging exhibition of visual art, providing instead a space for artists’ to develop work during residencies, exploring the boundaries between audience and performer through the presentation of work-in-progress, with a focus on participation. Appropriating a phrase from Neagu’s 1969 Palpable Art Manifesto, Beyond the Fatigued Eye hints at the need to consider the potential of art to operate beyond the presentation of a finished, aesthetic experience, asking how art can help us to respond to challenges, whether technological or societal, that threaten culture’s relevance?

Jan 28 - Apr 9, 2017
This exhibition explores the central role of art at Bluecoat, which started over a century ago, through key personalities, exhibitions and organisations that found a home here, contributing to the unique history of the UK’s oldest arts centre. This is the first in a year-long series of heritage exhibitions that tell the building’s 300-year story, including its origins in 18th century philanthropy, a school for architects, home for radical exhibitions and bohemian cabaret, and the developmentof an artistic community.

PUBLIC VIEW
Feb 4 - Apr 23, 2017
Curated by Bluecoat Artistic Director Bryan Biggs, the exhibition Public View brings together works by 100 artists who have previously exhibited at Bluecoat. The exhibition will feature work from a number of high profile artists including John Akomfrah, Jeremy Deller, John Latham, Mark Leckey, Elizabeth Magill, Yoko Ono and Yinka Shonibare. This is but a small sample of the many hundreds of artists who have shown here. However, it aims to reflect something of Bluecoat’s curatorial interests and distinctiveness over this period.

Nov 12, 2016 - Feb 19, 2017 FINAL WEEK
Firstsite is delighted to present Gee Vaucher: Introspective, the first ever survey of the renowned British artist’s work to be mounted in the UK.
The exhibition, which brings together more than 200 works, many of which have never been shown in public before, offers a complete overview of her fifty-year career, revealing the multifarious forces that have inspired and shaped her artistic practice.
Vaucher’s work is characterised by its political engagement. Her activism was forged in the 1960s and 1970s, but is rooted in an older tradition of dissent arguably dating to the 14th century, to John Ball and the Peasant’s Revolt. However, she abhors any form of classification, rejecting any ‘isms’ that seek to pigeonhole either her or her art. It is this ardent non-conformism that imbues her art with its power and originality.

ANTHEA HAMILTON REIMAGINES KETTLE'S YARD
Sep 15, 2016 - Mar 19, 2017
The Hepworth Wakefield and Kettle’s Yard are delighted to present a new installation by Turner Prize nominee, Anthea Hamilton, an artist renowned for her art-pop, culture-inspired sculptures and installations that incorporate references from the worlds of art, fashion, design and cinema.

A CONTEMPORARY COLLECTION
to Autumn 2017
The Wakefield Permanent Art Collection was founded in 1923, and housed in Wakefield Art Gallery from 1932. Shortly after, Wakefield Councilman Alfred Carr stated that the purpose of the collection was ‘to keep in touch with modern art, in its relations to modern life’.
 
This exhibition celebrates this founding ethos of Wakefield’s collection. For more than 80 years the collection has grown through acquisitions and gifts of work by important contemporary artists including: Roger Fry and the Camden Town Group, and Modernists such as Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore and Ben Nicholson.

Jan 28 - Jun 4, 2017
Brighton-based Tyson says, “I began making Studio Wall Drawings in 1997 when I was sharing a studio with four other artists in South East London where wall space was scarce. I could pin a single large sheet of watercolour paper to a board and scribble down notes, ideas and sketches."
 
“Over time I began to think of these drawings more as works in their own right, existing somewhere in-between a sketchbook, a journal, a poem and a painting - I found that I could work unhindered by the self-conscious restraint I'd often felt while working on canvas."
