Click to enlargeYE FUNA: FROM HAND TO HAND
Mar 24 - May 7, 2018
Ye Funa’s practice is concerned with the boundaries between daily life and contemporary art. Her work explores the effects of new media and globalisation on cultural identity and gender. For our exhibition, Ye will produce a new episode in her online Peep-Stream series, addressing society’s current desire to display ourselves through selfies, webchats and social media. Ping-Pong Stream, an interactive live streamed performance, will focus on China’s waning interest in ping pong in favour of celebrity sports of basketball and football. Produced in The Space at Nottingham Contemporary, Ping Pong Stream will tell the story of Yong Ping, a former Ping Pong World Champion.
The final video will be embedded in an immersive installation that converts the Project Space into a nail salon. Here, nails become the exhibition space through which Ye artificially reforms the natural extremities of the body. This exhibition is part of NOW: A Dialogue on Female Chinese Contemporary Artists, in collaboration with CFCCA, HOME, Turner Contemporary, MIMA and Tate.

MAHBUB JOKHIO
Feb 9 - Apr 22, 2018 FINAL WEEK
In The City of Lost Times is Pakistani artist Mahbub Jokhio’s first solo show in the UK. Fascinated with public spaces that have a very private dimension, Jokhio’s work has recently focussed on graveyards in Pakistan. Graveyards in Pakistan are frequently seen as spaces solely for the dead, and are not often visited beyond funerals and burials. However, Mahbub Jokhio suggests they should be places where both the living and the dead can co-exis.

JOHN STEZAKER
Dec 1, 2017 - Jun 1, 2018
Using vintage photographs, old film stills, postcards and book illustrations, John Stezaker makes collages that subvert their original imagery, creating unique and compelling works of art. Collages from his Mask series will be shown, in which glamorous sitters’ faces are overlaid with scenic postcards featuring waterfalls bridges, seascapes; Untitled (Film Portrait Collages) in which photographs of B-movie actors are spliced together; and other works that combine and mirror photographs to subtly destabilise the image. This exhibition marks the gift from Karsten Schubert to the Whitworth of nineteen collages by John Stezaker, and a further three collages presented by the artist himself.

EXCHANGES
Mar 24, 2018 - Apr 1, 2019
Exchanges sets art and artists together, sometimes in harmony, sometimes in opposition – always with insight and intention.
Works by Gillian Wearing, William Hogarth and Louise Bourgious and Tracey Emin encourage dialogue about expectations of female behavior. Rebecca Warren and Hayley Tompkins elevate discarded objects to the status of art and challenge our ideas about what should be shown in museums. While Simon Patterson, Jitish Kallat, Roni Horn and Stephen Willats consider how we make order out of a disordered world.
Over the next year some of this art will be exchanged for our most recent acquisitions activating new dialogues between the works displayed.

ISAAC JULIEN : TEN THOUSAND WAVES
Mar 30 - Aug 28, 2018
Ten Thousand Waves is the most recent in a series of major moving image acquisitions by the Whitworth, and was supported through Art Fund’s Moving Image Fund.
