Sep 28, 2019 - Jan 19, 2020 FINAL WEEK
This autumn sees the launch of a major new commission by Mikhail Karikis that explores the relationship between listening and care. Karikis’ new moving image installation has developed with Project Art Works, an artist-led organisation in Hastings that collaborates with people with complex support needs. Focusing on interactions between carers and non-verbal people who use Project Art Works’ studio spaces, Karikis invites us to pay attention to the sensitive tuning-in of support workers, artists and family members to those they support – a precarious role that is often invisible, misunderstood and undervalued by society.

It takes shape across a large new sculptural display system that houses works by Boyce and artists including Kate Cooper, Harold Offeh, Flora Parrott and Alberta Whittle alongside selected works from the Middlesbrough Collection. The sculpture is based on the crystalline form of the mineral pyrite, known as Fool’s Gold, and is clad in wallpapers made by Boyce since the early 1990s.

Oct 26, 2019 - Jan 26, 2020
Focal Point Gallery is pleased to present ‘The World After’, a newly commissioned work and exhibition by artist David Blandy. Comprised of a film, installation and game, ‘The World After’ is a fictional tale which imagines a world after the Anthropocene era, a time in which humanity’s activities had detrimental effect on earth’s climate and environment. In this future world, human influence on the planet has faded following a catastrophic man-made ecological crisis, with those who remain having to find new ways to survive and form kin.

JAMIE CREWE : LOVE & SOLIDARITY
Feb 7 - Apr 17, 2020
Private view Fri Feb 7 6pm - 8pm
Grand Union (Birmingham) and Humber Street Gallery (Hull) have co-commissioned ‘sister’ exhibitions of new work by Jamie Crewe comprising videos, sculptures and writing – 'Love & Solidarity' in Birmingham, and 'Solidarity & Love' in Hull. This new body of work takes inspiration from Radclyffe Hall’s 1928 novel 'The Well of Loneliness', using the ambiguous tensions it stirs to think about repulsive kinships: with places, cultures, histories, communities, and individuals. The book is a portrait of Stephen Gordon: a masculine lover of women, who wants to be a country gentleman like her father. The book thwarts her desires, and has been an influence on many Anglophone queer and lesbian women, regarded both as a stirring representation and a regrettable antique. It has also been interpreted in the field of transgender studies, with some critics arguing that Stephen might be better understood as a trans man.
 
Humber Street Gallery exhibition runs Saturday 18 January – Sunday 29 March 2020

Jan 18 - Mar 29, 2020
Anne Ryan is a contemporary artist creating highly coloured, constructed paintings that focus on figures engaged in a variety of activities – her subjects dance, party, pose and generally indulge themselves in scenarios that draw on diverse sources from visual culture and the world around her. Ryan has said: ‘I’m interested in the marginal, the minor, that’s where there might be something still to say or leave unsaid in painting.’ Accordingly Ryan might be inspired as much by imagery of indie rock gigs and popular cinema as by classical figurative painting and sculpture. Ryan is creating new work for this major exhibition at Hastings Contemporary, using materials and processes that have been developed during the past few years including her ‘cutouts’ – sculptural painted works made from card, collage, canvas, ceramic and metal.

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.

LINDERISM
Feb 15 - Apr 26, 2020
A new solo exhibition of work by the artist. Most well known for her photomontage, this exhibition explores the diverse range of Linder’s practice. It explores Linder as performance artist, zine-maker, musician, documentary-photographer, collaborator, muse, guru, medium and body-builder.
 
Through the use of the Kettle’s Yard Archive, Linder also approaches Helen Ede’s elusive presence in Kettle’s Yard. Linder reinstates Helen through the creation of ‘House of Helen’, a brand of products available in the shop. A series of new commissions engage all five senses and see Linder staging interventions in all areas of Kettle’s Yard.
