'Artist: Unknown, Art and Artefacts from the University of Cambridge Museums and Collections'
From the ancient to the contemporary – whether in a museum, book or auction house – the way we engage with art has revolved around the cult of the individual. But what happens when we don’t know who made something?
Artist: Unknown takes this question as its focus, bringing together for the first time an extraordinary selection of anonymous art and artefacts from the University of Cambridge’s renowned museums and collections.

Oct 3 - 27, 2019
This new exhibition will bring together work by twenty-two artists who are based in and around Cambridge. Showcasing a cross-section of the artistic community operating from the local area, from photography to performance, the exhibition will explore these artists’ diverse practices and some of the themes and issues that they are engaging with right now.
The artists were selected from an open-call to which 460 artists put forward over 1500 works. The selection panel was chaired by Andrew Nairne OBE, Director of Kettle’s Yard, and included Amy Botfield, Arts Council England; Guy Haywood, Curator, Exhibitions and Collection, Kettle’s Yard; Harriet Loffler, Curator, New Hall Art Collection, Murray Edwards College; Issam Kourbaj, artist; and Kettle’s Yard committee member Sabine Jaccaud, AstraZeneca.

Nov 12, 2019 - Feb 2, 2020
Through photography, sculpture, painting, performance and film, Homelands tells stories of migration and resettlement in South Asia and beyond, as well as violent division and unexpected connections. The exhibition engages with displacement and the transitory notion of home in a region marked by the repercussions of the Partition of India and Pakistan in 1947, and the independence of Bangladesh in 1971, as well as by contemporary migration. The artists explore intimate and political histories, often contesting borders, questioning common pasts and imagining new futures.
