KEITH TYSON : TURN BACK NOW
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."

Click to enlargeMETA-MATTER
Mar 25 - Apr 22, 2017
META-MATTER unites seven international artists who seek to mediate the material and transcendental forces that propel our visual and psychological landscape. Invoking the supernatural powers of colour, light, pattern, and form, they seek messages in the metaphysical properties of the world around us. Fusing art and science, physics and intuition, they step closer to capturing the sublime and untouchable forces which drive and shape our phenomenal universe.
 
Artists include Clare Strand (UK), United Visual Artists (UK), Sara VanDerBeek (USA), Sookoon Ang (Singapore), Anouk Kruithof (Mexico), Sergei Sviatchenko (Denmark), and Patternity (UK)
 
Meta-Matter is curated by Faye Dowling.

IDRIS KHAN A WORLD WITHIN
Feb 3 - May 7, 2017
The exhibition will bring together significant bodies of work drawing on a range of interests including classical music, the history of art, literature, philosophy and religion.

During this time we are hosting a series of off-site events and exhibitions across North-East England and further afield. Please see the exhibitions page for details.

Click to enlargeA SCIENTIFIC ENCOUNTER: ON INTEROBJECTIVITY
Apr 20 - May 24, 2017
This exhibition of international artists from Germany, France, Canada, Macedonia and the UK examines how we see the world through objects, and how objects act upon us. The show takes the anthropologist of science Bruno Latour’s idea of how objects interact and act on the world as its starting point – an idea he has labelled “interobjectivity”.
 
The exhibition is staged in the historic buildings of Montpellier University’s original libraries, and draws on three hundred years of collecting by the institution. Montpellier was one of the first universities in the world to pioneer modern medical sciences, and this exhibition pairs eleven artists with objects from its extraordinary collections of early-modern medical artefacts, natural history collections – and European Old Master drawings.

MIKE PERRY : LAND/SEA (TIR/MÔR)
Apr 7 - Jun 17, 2017
A major new solo exhibition by Wales-based artist Mike Perry. Perry’s work engages with significant and pressing environmental issues, in particular the fragility of the planet's ecosystems (be that land or marine), and the tension between human activity and interventions in the natural environment. Using the formal language of 1960s/70s minimalism, Perry’s photography poetically alludes to what we might be leaving for future generations, adding a contemporary narrative to minimalist abstraction.

Mar 1 - Apr 5, 2017
Utilising ideas and themes developed through his recent practice such as signage, props, scale and modelmaking, Stuart will create sculptural installations featuring frameworks, structures and illuminated elements exploring our experience of the everyday and how the world is presented to us. The work will explore the shapes, colour and materials familiar from our daily encounters of media, signs and surroundings as well as specific inspirations from Plymouth itself.

NOAM TORAN : THE JUNGLE
Apr 26 - May 31, 2017
Private view Wed Apr 26 6pm - 7:30pm
The Jungle is the first of a series of immersive works by artist Noam Toran which draw from the traditions of political theatre from the first half of the 20th century.
From the Soviet Proletkult, to the agitprops of pre-war Europe, through to the socialist, anarchist, and union-run troupes in the Americas and European colonies, the project reveals the dynamic ways in which working class theatre, through its coalescing of fictional and factual material, has informed and infected radical consciousness.

Click to enlargeLUBAINA HIMID : NAVIGATION CHARTS
Jan 20 - Mar 26, 2017 FINAL WEEK
Lubaina Himid was a pioneer of the Black Arts Movement in Britain in the 1980s, which offered a forum for black artists exploring the social and political issues surrounding black history and identity.
 
Spike Island’s exhibition — a collaboration with Modern Art Oxford and Nottingham Contemporary — focuses on migration, labour and creativity, longstanding concerns for Himid. Anchored by Naming the Money (2004), a spectacular installation of 100 life-size, painted figures that has been shown only once before in its entirety, the presentation brings into dialogue major works from the past 25 years, honing in on Himid’s theatrical use of cut-outs, colour and pattern.

GILES ROUND
Apr 8 - Jun 18, 2017
Giles Round is an artist whose work engages with design and functionality. Incorporating architecture, ceramics, furniture design, print and typography, his approach is best described as a way of working. For his exhibition at Spike Island, Round will draw on his experience as an exhibition designer to theatricalise museum systems of display and mediation often rendered as functionally invisible.

ANDREA LUKA ZIMMERMAN
Apr 8 - Jun 18, 2017
Private view Fri Apr 7 6pm - 9pm
Spike Island presents a solo exhibition by artist, cultural activist and filmmaker Andrea Luka Zimmerman. Her work documents lives and stories of coexistence and resistance in precarious times; from encounters with the street dogs of Istanbul and the citizens who care for them, to the long drawn-out closure of the East London housing estate where the artist once lived and whose residents she filmed over seven years. Zimmerman is co-founder of the artists’ collective Fugitive Images and the filmmaking collective Vision Machine.

DORA GARCIA : THESE BOOKS WERE ALIVE; THEY SPOKE TO ME!
Feb 3 - Apr 23, 2017
An exhibition of printed matter and performance works by Barcelona-based artist Dora García. Her first institutional solo show in the UK, the exhibition coincides with the 20th PAGES International Contemporary Artists’ Book Fair in March.
García’s show will provide a retrospective look at her career-long production of book editions, book sculptures and the ongoing connection within her practice to popular literature, theatre and film. For These books were alive; they spoke to me! García will stage a new iteration of several performance works, some of which have never been performed in English or outside of Spain before.
‘These books were alive; they spoke to me,’ is a quote from François Truffaut’s 1966 dystopic cult film Fahrenheit 451 (based on Ray Bradbury’s novel of the same name). This literary reference opens up a framework for the exhibition and expanded programme, which features books about performance and performances about books.

A CERTAIN KIND OF LIGHT : LIGHT IN ART OVER SIX DECADES
Jan 21 - May 7, 2017
A Certain Kind Of Light explores how artists have responded to light, its materiality, transience and effect over six decades. The exhibition brings together artworks that reflect the relationship between light and a wide range of themes from brightness, colour and perception to transformation, energy and the passage of time.

THE MUSEUM OF ART
Feb 4 - Apr 17, 2017
Presenting treasures from Towner's Collection
 
Inspired by the eclectic collections amassed by 19th century collectors, The Museum of Art uses works from the Towner Collection to playfully reflect the mood and character of a Victorian museum.
 
The installation juxtaposes seemingly disconnected paintings and brings together diverse clusters of sculptures in crowded cases. These unexpected arrangements allude to hidden connections and inspire the viewer to invent their own histories for the works.
 
This display will include the Towner Bequest and works by Henry Moore, Victor Pasmore and Christopher Wood.

BECKY BEASLEY: OUS
Apr 29 - Jul 9, 2017
Becky Beasley’s photographs and sculptures, while deeply personal, often develop through an engagement with the ideas and works of other artists and writers. On this occasion, one such figure is artist and designer Eric Ravilious.
 
Across six room installations, Ous will explore Beasley’s ongoing interest in specific qualities raised by Ravilious’ practice: space, flatness, light, abstraction and nature, as well as his creative friendships.
 
Featuring newly commissioned linoleum floor designs, photographs and sculptural works, these installations can be experienced as a gently unfolding environment in which questions of interior and exterior become blurred.

Nov 19, 2016 - Apr 16, 2017
ARTIST ROOMS: Andy Warhol shows the sharp critical opinions of an artist known to many primarily as art salesman, purveyor of product and celebrant of capitalism. Supported by Arts Council, Art Fund and Creative Scotland, the exhibition is drawn from ARTIST ROOMS, a collection of international modern and contemporary art owned by National Galleries of Scotland and Tate on behalf of the public. Focusing on themes of death, politics and identity it presents audiences with Warhol’s reading of the American Dream at a time when the country will be under scrutiny just days after the 2016 US Presidential election.
