EMMA SMITH : EUPHONIA
Apr 27 - Jun 24, 2018
Bluecoat’s gallery is transformed into a sonic chamber for collective singing in this ground-breaking new sound installation by Emma Smith, based on the music of social communication. Euphonia is an interactive sound work illustrating how we unconsciously make music through interlocking rhythms, pitch and tone when we engage in friendly interactions - such as chitchat with friends. Smith will draw from sounds created by the many people who visit Bluecoat on a daily basis –parents and babies, visitors to the café and the choirs and groups who rehearse there in the evenings.

May 12 - Aug 19, 2018
As a precursor to the British New Wave, Free Cinema marked a broader attitudinal shift in cinema and the arts against the exclusion of whole areas of life. Through a supporting programme of film and events, the exhibition will examine how the movement reflects the present challenges and methods of resistance employed by filmmakers and artists alike. This will include a temporary cinema space built into gallery one.
 
Gallery two will house an installation presentation of artist Ed Webb-Ingall's new community video project originally commissioned by Studio Voltaire. 'We Have Rather Been Invaded' looks at the impact and legacy of Section 28 and a historic ‘lesbian invasion’ of the BBC six o’clock news on May 23rd 1988. Comprised of archival material and interviews, the video examines the role of activism and our understanding of this piece of legislation 30 years on which prohibited local authorities in England and Wales from promoting homosexuality.

INHERITED PREMISES : RAMI GEORGE & TAKO TAAL
May 25 - Aug 3, 2018
Private view Fri Jun 1 6pm - 9pm
Inherited Premises is a two-person show by artists Rami George and Tako Taal that seeks to articulate both personal and national narratives, situating itself between moments of political rupture and socio-familial histories.
 
Making reference to domesticity, language and ideas of nationhood, both artists explore their cultural and social lineages in relation to broader understandings of political traumas including conflict, war and imperialism.
 
As George moves towards a meditation on the spectre of Civil War within the Lebanese diaspora, Taal looks to linguistic boundaries and folklore in her understandings of matrilineal relations in Gambian culture.
 
Curated by Associate Curator Seán Elder.

Mar 24 - Jun 23, 2018
Stretching through the Grundy’s two ground-floor gallery spaces, The Way Things Are is a sculpture, precisely and elegantly constructed in poplar wood that approximates to the form of a pier. Inspired by Victorian lithographs, contemporary architects’ drawings and the artist’s own recollections, The Way Things Are extends the artist’s interest in romantic longing; between desire and lived experience, between memory and fact.

DAUGHTERS OF NECESSITY : SERENA KORDA & WAKEFIELD'S CERAMICS

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 24, 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

LEE MILLER : AND SURREALISM IN BRITAIN
Jun 22 - Oct 7, 2018
Lee Miller (1907 – 1977) first entered the world of photography in New York as a model in Vogue in the 1920s. In 1929 she moved to Paris and worked with Man Ray, establishing her own studio and becoming part of the Surrealist milieu. A rich strand of Surrealist practice emerged in Britain in the 1930s and developed in the immediate pre-war period, during which Miller moved to London.
 
This exhibition will explore the creative networks between artists in the UK in the 1930s and 40s through Miller’s lens. Miller’s photographs of and collaborations with Surrealists working in the UK, including Eileen Agar, Leonora Carrington, Max Ernst and René Magritte will be presented alongside their own paintings and sculptures.
 
It will also focus on Miller’s own practice and how she turned her Surrealist eye across disciplines to the worlds of fashion and journalism, revealing and revelling in the strange and extraordinary.

VIVIANE SASSEN: HOT MIRROR
Jun 22 - Oct 7, 2018
Echoing the career of Lee Miller, internationally renowned artist Viviane Sassen (b. 1972) straddles the fashion and fine art worlds. Central to this exhibition is the inspiration of Surrealism, a movement Sassen recognises as one of her earliest artistic influences, seen in the uncanny shadows, fragmented bodies and dreamlike landscapes of her work.
 
Hot Mirror will bring together photographs from several collections made over the last ten years, including the celebrated Flamboya and Parasomnia series (2013), shown alongside new photographs and collages, to create image-poems that draw on the Surrealist strategies of collage to offer new and unexpected juxtapositions.
 
As well as an overview of Sassen’s artistic practice, the exhibition will present a new version of her immersive film installation, Totem.
