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

A KING'S APPETITE : LAURA FORD
Sep 30 - Nov 5, 2017
British artist Laura Ford has been commissioned by HOUSE Biennial in partnership with Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.
A King’s Appetite is a new sculptural installation that takes inspiration from Royal Pavilion & Museum Collections including caricatures by James Gillray and George Cruikshank satirising aspects of the life of the Prince Regent, and imagery found in the Willett Collection of pottery and porcelain.
 
Ford’s work is consistently curious about the human condition and wider social and political issues, often mixing the bitter sweet with wit. This new work explores socio-political notions of excess, greed and indulgence and the Imperialist attitudes that they reflect. The resulting imagery looks at fundamental contemporary issues relating to Excess, the theme of this year’s HOUSE Biennial, and its subsequent inequalities, both of the Regency period and of society today.

Jul 1 - Oct 8, 2017
Howard Hodgkin (1932 - 2017) is widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest painters and has been a central figure in contemporary art for over half a century. This is the first comprehensive exhibition to explore the enduring influence of India on Hodgkin’s work, a place he has returned to almost annually, since his first trip to the country in 1964, over 50 years ago.

ALINA SZAPOCZNIKOW : HUMAN LANDSCAPES
Oct 20, 2017 - Jan 28, 2018
Private view Thu Oct 19 6pm - 9pm
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.

Click to enlargeJANETTE PARRIS : HATFIELD CONVERSATIONS
Oct 7 - Nov 8, 2017
Janette Parris launches a new animated film Hatfield Conversations this Autumn on campus and at Hatfield library. Following intense research in situ over the summer, Janette will create a new visual portrait of the town’s communities, places and activities, accompanied by a soundtrack composed by the artist. This snapshot of Hatfield will celebrate everyday life, seeking to make visible what is usually hidden and overlooked.
 
Taking up residence in the town for a number of weeks, Janette will embed herself by sitting in cafes, shopping in Asda, visiting the library, attending community group meetings and participating in events like ‘Clean up Hatfield’ walks. With affection and poignancy, Janette’s animated portrait will capture local stories and protagonists, fictionalising them to make relevant comments and observations about the state of this Hertfordshire town, and perhaps our entire nation in 2017.

PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST: KÄTHE KOLLWITZ
Sep 13 - Nov 26, 2017
Käthe Kollwitz (née Schmidt, 1867–1945) was one of the leading artists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, notable for the emotional power of her drawing, printmaking and later sculpture. This exhibition focuses on around forty works from the British Museum’s remarkable print collection, alongside material drawn from other UK public collections. The exhibition highlights the importance of Kollwitz’s work and celebrates the enduring impact of her powerful and affecting images.

Click to enlargeANNA MOLKSA : HE WEAVERS
Sep 13 - Nov 26, 2017
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.
