JOHN KIPPIN: BASED ON A TRUE STORY
Jun 29 - Sep 23, 2018
Based on a True Story surveys forty years of making art in public by John Kippin, a central figure in the emergence of photography as an independent art form in the UK from the 1970s and 1980s through to the present day. The exhibition, and the 344pp publication that accompany it, bringing together contributions from nine leading scholars and curators in the field, including the Director of The Photographers‘ Gallery, Brett Rogers. Each of the nine contributors has selected works from Kippin’s forty-year archive to provide
new insights into his way of seeing the world through a lens. Kippin’s photographic artwork has contributed to debates about the nature of post-industrial landscapes, national and regional identity, forgotten spaces, and the power of the state and commerce to reshape the world. Since the 1980s, Kippin has created billboards for public spaces that intervene in the social realm directly – countering the messages of advertising with counter-cultural propositions, and questions.

Jul 14 - Oct 7, 2018
Working with textile installation, ceramics and video, Mexican artist Pia Camil highlights the shortcomings of consumerism and globalisation through works that are playful, interactive and participatory.
 
The gallery space will be theatrically divided by a large curtain constructed from t-shirts that were originally manufactured in Latin America for export and then illicitly sold back to Mexico to be resold in street markets. Camil will be presenting new commissions including a usable hammock made out of discarded jeans sewn together, creating intimate and social spaces within the gallery.
 
The exhibition also features Camil’s ceramic masks, inspired by jewellery display busts and Carl Jung’s concept of persona – our public mask or public image – and a newly commissioned video produced in collaboration with writer Gabriela Jauregui.

Jul 20 - Oct 14, 2018
Tai Shani presents her first major solo exhibition in a public gallery, presenting the culmination of her ongoing project Dark Continent, which includes an immersive installation in The Tetley’s atrium, film works, posters and a selection of artworks drawn together by Shani.
 
Over the last four years Tai Shani has been developing a body of work that takes Christine de Pizan’s 1405 proto-feminist text The Book of the City of Ladies as its starting point. Pizan created an allegorical city of notable women drawn from a medieval conception of history, where fact, fiction and myth are blurred. Characters from fiction live side by side with female historical figures, collectively making an early case for gender equality.

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.
