Click to enlargeKEITH TYSON : TURN BACK NOW
Jan 28 - Jun 4, 2017 FINAL WEEK
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."

HEYWOOD & CONDIE : HEAD LAND
Mar 10 - Sep 3, 2017
This courtyard installation takes the form of a magical-realist landscape portrait of Hastings. The artistic duo will create a fantastical, hybrid world where sculpted, cartoonesque land and seascapes collide with a carefully constructed botanical ecosystem.

SCENES OF WALSALL
Feb 18 - Jul 16, 2017
Many scenes of Walsall have been collected since the establishment of Walsall’s public art collection in 1892. In this exhibition, to help celebrate the Permanent Collection’s 125th birthday, a range of these are on display, from a lithograph of Walsall High Street in 1845 to contemporary photography.

PEOPLE'S CHOICE

To celebrate the 125th anniversary of our Permanent Collection in 2017 and the launch of our new online collections database we will display the most popular works from our Permanent Collection, as voted for by the public, in our themed collection galleries in March.

JOANNE MASDING : PLASTER GHOST FINGER CAST
May 5 - Jul 30, 2017
Masding works across a wide range of media, including traditional sculptural materials such as plaster and clay, combined with more contemporary media and processes including digital animation, holographic vinyl and computer screen filters. Her interest in museum collections extends to the ways in which they are medicated through display strategies and through reproduction in different contexts, raising questions about value, content and authenticity.

Click to enlargeRACHEL GOODYEAR : CATCHING SIGHT
May 26 - Sep 3, 2017
The New Art Gallery Walsall is delighted to present a brand new body of work by British artist Rachel Goodyear. Goodyear is renowned for her drawing-based practice which hints at a world of the unconscious mind. Her cast of characters, sourced from old magazines, books and anonymous photographs, often appear within claustrophobic spaces or are set against heavy and brooding washes of ink and watercolour.

SOHEILA SOKHANVARI : HEART OF GLASS
May 26 - Sep 3, 2017
Soheila Sokhanvari is an Iranian-born artist whose multidisciplinary work weaves layers of political histories with bizarre,humorous and mysterious narratives that are then left to the viewer's own sensitivity to complete.
Sokhanvari is drawn to traumas that linger in the collective consciousness or cause mass amnesia, and yet resist conventional representation,

LARA FAVARETTO & WU TSANG
May 20 - Aug 28, 2017
Lara Favaretto’s work explores sculpture as a constant process of creation and destruction. This exhibition, her first major solo show in the UK, brings together a range of works, often kinetic or disappearing, from the last two decades. It will also include a major public art commission: installed on the roof a system of fog machines will produce intermittent clouds of vapour from above the galleries.
 
Wu Tsang’s films, installations, performances and sculptures move between fiction, documentary and activism and are deeply involved with queer activism and underground club culture. Her new film Duilian (2016), a special commission for this exhibition, is a kung-fu love story, shot over the course of a year in Hong Kong.

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.

Apr 26 - May 31, 2017 FINAL WEEK
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.

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.

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.

Bringing together exceptional examples of painting and sculpture from the Arts Council Collection, and augmented with major loans from important UK collections, Kaleidoscope examines the art of the 1960s through a fresh and surprising lens, one bringing into direct view the relationship between colour and form, rationality and irrationality, order and waywardness.

[Re]construct: A National Partners Programme Exhibition from the Arts Council Collection.

This exhibition explores ways in which artists have incorporated architecture into their work using a process of deconstruction and reconstruction in order to interrogate and manipulate its forms.

HAROON MIRZA
Jun 3 - Jul 2, 2017
Over the summer solstice, Haroon Mirza will create a new work in James Turrell’s Deer Shelter Skyspace as part of his ongoing Solar Symphony series. Mirza will temporarily attach a photovoltaic panel to an interior wall of the Skyspace which, when activated by direct sunlight, will use the sun’s energy to power an immersive audiovisual installation. The electricity generated by the sun will be perceived both visually via the illumination of the LEDs and acoustically through a connection to a loudspeaker.
