Feb 2 - Apr 21, 2018
Private view Fri Feb 2 6pm - 8pm
Grand Union is pleased to present Deeper in the Pyramid, a project by Melanie Jackson.
 
Deeper in the Pyramid is an expansive new body of work comprising of animation, sculpture, a filmed performance and a publication in a graphic novel format, written in collaboration with Esther Leslie.
 
We are taken on a journey of lactic abstractions, through the webs of bio-invasion and collective fantasy that interconnect various life forms through milk, its technologies and representations. The ontologies of species and gender have always been shaped by our relations with this primal liquid, and ensuring a ready supply has driven research in genetics, fertility and robotics. It is now open for radical transformation as new bio-organisms emerge, and real science merges with the fantastic.
 
This project will be delivered across Grand Union, Primary in Nottingham and Banner Repeater in London.

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.

DAUGHTERS OF NECESSITY : SERENA KORDA & WAKEFIELD'S CERAMICS
Dec 2, 2017 - Jul 5, 2018
The Hepworth Wakefield is home to a rich and eclectic collection of ceramics made by some of the great names of modern pottery, including Hans Coper, Lucy Rie and Albert Wainwright. For this exhibition, British artist Serena Korda will choose a selection of these ceramics to display alongside her own new and existing works, exploring where these objects sit between function and sculpture.

SCHOOL PRINTS
Jan 12 - Jun 3, 2018
During the 1940s, artists including Henri Matisse, Henry Moore and Pablo Picasso were commissioned to create prints as part of a project to bring contemporary art to school children.
 
Inspired by this project, we have invited Martin Creed, Jeremy Deller, Anthea Hamilton, Helen Marten, Haroon Mirza and Rose Wylie to create limited edition prints for schools. The new prints will be displayed alongside the original 1940s works.

Feb 16 - Jun 3, 2018
Solid Light Works will be the first major UK exhibition of artist Anthony McCall’s work in over a decade. It will explore all facets of his work and will include the UK premiere of three new ‘solid light’ installations.
 
McCall describes his practice as existing in the space where cinema, sculpture and drawing overlap. He is best known for his large-scale, immersive sculptural light installations that incorporate the visitor and invite them to become active participants in the work.

Click to enlargeSLOW VIOLENCE
Nov 29, 2017 - Jan 20, 2018 FINAL WEEK
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.

UNFINISHED
Feb 15 - 22, 2018

Click to enlargeNOOR AFSHAN MIRZA & BRAD BUTLER THE SCAR
Feb 10 - Mar 31, 2018
Private view Fri Feb 9 6pm - 8pm
Together we are barrelling towards the scene of the accident at 120 kilometres an hour. Noor Afshan Mirza and Brad Butler’s fiction film installation weaves together conspiracy, gangster, noir, politics, fantasy and reality into a disrupted narrative and exploration of genre. Across three chapters that all end in a car crash, The Scar tells its story from the position of the female passenger, Yenge. Through her journey, we begin to address corrupt systems that hold power, explore ways to ‘get out’ of the car and begin to imagine an alternative society no longer dominated by patriarchy. Mirza and Butler work in an international context and are interested in expanded notions of art that turn to such areas as the ectoplasm of neoliberalism, state enforced violence, and women’s bodies as sites of resistance. A new HOME commission with no.w.here in partnership with FLAMIN, Spectre Productions, Delfina Foundation, Centre national des arts plastiques, Edith-Russ-Haus and Óngels barcelona.
