PLYMOUTH CONTEMPORARY 2017
Jul 15 - Sep 2, 2017
Plymouth Contemporary is an open submission exhibition that provides a platform for new, up and coming creative talent alongside nationally and internationally significant artists. Following the hugely successful launch of the first Plymouth Contemporary in 2015, this bi-annual exhibition seeks to become recognised as a beacon for showcasing the latest talent and new perspectives within contemporary art.
 
The Plymouth Contemporary is a partnership between the three key cultural change-makers within Plymouth in the lead up to 2020; Plymouth University, the Plymouth History Centre – the City’s £34 million visitor attraction for art and heritage, due to open during the Mayflower 400 commemorations – and KARST, Plymouth’s largest independent, artist-led contemporary art venue.

JOANNE MASDING : PLASTER GHOST FINGER CAST
May 5 - Jul 30, 2017 FINAL WEEK
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,

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.

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.

Click to enlargeDAVID BLANDY AND LARRY ACHIAMPONG : FINDING FANON SEQUENCE
Jul 7 - Sep 2, 2017
The exhibition premiere of Larry Achiampong and David Blandy’s film trilogy Finding Fanon (2015-17) is a moving and multi-layered exploration of race, identity and globalisation. Inspired by the radical thinker Frantz Fanon (1925–1961), The films move between past, present and future, blending personal histories and pop culture with science fiction and post-colonial theory. Footage of the artists shot in empty coastal and rural locations is collaged with their avatars wandering the deserted scenarios of Grand Theft Auto.
 
Alongside their collaborative work, the exhibition includes pieces by each artist from their individual practices, continuing their exploration of how we navigate the digital and physical worlds of the twenty-first century.

Jul 8 - Sep 17, 2017
Tessa Lynch works predominantly with sculpture and performance. Her work develops from the observation of her immediate surroundings and from her quest for the existence of a female flâneur, the woman who wanders aimlessly. The artist embarks on lengthy periods of active research that see her walking through the city streets in the company of chosen collaborators, often writers she interviews while walking. These wanderings around the city are later transformed into sculptural installations that recall her experience of the urban landscape.

RANA BEGUM
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.
