Click to enlargeCLAIRE FONTAINE : WE THE PEOPLE ARE THE WORK
Sep 22 - Nov 18, 2017
Private view Fri Sep 22 8pm - 10pm
As part of We The People Are The Work's multi-site exhibition coming to KARST is Claire Fontaine, a collective feminist artist, lifted from a popular brand of French stationary. Working in neon, video, sculpture and text, Fontaine’s work often interrogates through her art the impotence of people in the face of social and political issues.
Lifting quotes from Donald Trump and the Brexit debate, she creates a visual and conceptual polyphony where the viewer is invited to take a position.

Jul 29 - Sep 24, 2017 FINAL WEEK

Aug 11 - Nov 19, 2017
Private view Thu Sep 21 6pm - 8pm
Barbara Nicholls’ monumental watercolour works emerge by manipulating the behaviour of pigment in ever-increasing quantities of water. They have associations with geological forms touching on collective memories of the experience of natural spaces, of the landscape and of the body.

LEGACIES : JMW TURNER AND CONTEMPORARY ART PRACTICE
Sep 22, 2017 - Jan 14, 2018
Private view Thu Sep 21 6pm - 8pm
A master of history, landscape and marine painting, Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) challenged accepted conventions in art, often shocking his contemporaries with his techniques and candid portrayal of the modern world. Legacies will consider the impact of JMW Turner through the lens of contemporary art, highlighting the ongoing relevance of his work for artists practising today.
 
Tate is home to the largest collection of works by Turner. Legacies will present a selection of paintings, sketchbooks, diagrams and works on paper from the Turner Bequest, alongside existing work by contemporary artists who have made work after Turner or evoke typically Turnerian subjects in their work. Dorothy Cross and Jonathan Wright have been specially commissioned by The New Art Gallery Walsall to produce a new work each in response to Turner’s art.

Click to enlargeCHAD MCCAIL : LIARS OF EARTH
Jun 24 - Oct 8, 2017
Chad McCail’s monumental 100-foot long monochrome drawing is shown here for the first time in this country. Across a vast landscape that encompasses all of the institutions that shape us, McCail explores how we can combine forces to work together, and defeat those who would rule over us. His epic work asks how we might live together in the twenty-first century to share our resources more equally, and to create a new way of life. Liars of Earth is an allegory of the way we live now: and of things to come. On the one side of a great divide are masked, robotic figures which have been commanding the landscape, exploiting its produce, and manipulating our labour, for their own gain. On the other side are massive mythical characters including a minotaur, a snake, and a “man of men”, a giant figure built of hundreds or thousands of individuals, all working together to defeat the robots and propose a new order.

SARAH FORREST : RECITAL
Sep 4 - 22, 2017 FINAL WEEK
Sarah Forrest works across film, installation, text and sound. Her practice weaves together elements of theory, fiction and philosophy to produce narrative driven works that playfully explore perceptions both of and by the self.
 
Recital explores the dichotomy between emotional and critical understanding, through the artist's continued attempts to learn the drum solo from Led Zeppelin’s Moby Dick. Being unable to play the drums, Forrest followed online tutorials and took lessons with a trained jazz drummer, practicing weekly in a rehearsal studio and daily on books, knees and cushions.

Sep 30 - Dec 17, 2017
Private view Fri Sep 29 6pm - 9pm
Spike Island is pleased to present the first exhibition in the UK by South Korean artist Kim Yong-Ik. The exhibition traces the progression of his work from his earliest Dansaekhwa paintings — a form of Korean abstraction — through his rejection of this tradition in the early 1980s, as his awareness of conceptual practice developed and life under Korea’s military dictatorship became increasingly repressive. It culminates in recent works characterised by his persistent questioning and deconstruction of contemporary art. The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Korean Cultural Centre, London, which presents a concurrent exhibition of the artist’s work.

Jul 15 - Oct 29, 2017
Born in Sylhet, Bangladesh, in 1977 not long after the country’s formation in 1971, she has lived in the UK since 1985 and studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design and the Slade School. Begum describes an early experience that informed her sense of pattern, light and colour as being ‘one particular day as a child in Bangladesh reading the Quran at the local mosque, in a tiny room dappled with morning light. The light and the repetition of recitation, all familiar elements, suddenly came together in a strong feeling of calm and exhilaration. It is one of my strongest memories and the experience of calm and exhilaration is what I try to capture in my work’.
 
Sharing her unique and sophisticated understanding of composition and response, Begum will curate an individual selection of sculpture, painting and drawing from the 8,000 works held in the Arts Council Collection alongside work by exciting emerging artists active in the UK, not yet in any public collections. An artist book will accompany the exhibition.
