+ Google Map

American artist Jenny Holzer presents statements that can provoke strong responses. Whether encountered on city streets or in art galleries, Holzer's work asks us to consider the words and messages that surround us. Her art takes many forms, including stone benches, projections, signs, posters, paintings, plaques and textiles. Words are central to her work, whether pasted on a wall, flickering from an electronic sign, carved in granite or stitched in wool. Her texts can be forceful and apparently simple, but may contradict…

Claudia Wieser @ Bloomberg Space

January 31, 2019 - July 31, 2019

Bloomberg Space

Claudia Wieser's Shift transforms the ground floor of the three-level space with delicately crafted sculptures and collaged wallpaper, welcoming visitors to explore an ever-changing scene where the ancient and the contemporary conflate and collide.  It is a visual archive of found images and times, resulting in a collage of different pasts that both cancel out and affect each other. At its core, Shift provokes questions about the different lenses and perceptions of past and present whilst inviting viewers to create their own associations and narratives.

Carey Young @ Towner Art Gallery

February 17, 2019 - June 2, 2019

Towner Gallery, Eastbourne

An exhibition of Carey Young’s, Palais de Justice (2017) which was filmed surreptitiously at the Palais de Justice in Brussels, an enormous and ornate 19th Century courthouse designed to depict law in terms of the sublime. The film contradicts the familiar patriarchal culture of law, as Young’s camera depicts female judges and lawyers at court. Sitting at trial, directing proceedings or delivering judgments, female judges are seen through a series of circular windows in courtroom doors.

Anne Hardy @ Towner Art Gallery

February 17, 2019 - June 2, 2019

Towner Gallery, Eastbourne

British artist Anne Hardy curates the Arts Council Collection in Towner’s eighth and final exhibition as part of the Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme 2016-19. Anne's work derives from places she calls ‘pockets of wild space’ – gaps in the urban space where materials, atmospheres, and emotions gather – using what she finds there to manifest sensory and unstable installation works that fully immerse you. Hardy brings this approach to her selection for Towner, envisioning the gallery space as a…

Dorothea Tanning @ Tate Modern

February 27, 2019 - June 9, 2019

Tate Modern

This is the first large-scale exhibition of Dorothea Tanning’s work for 25 years. It brings together 100 works from her seven-decade career – from enigmatic paintings to uncanny sculptures. Tanning wanted to depict ‘unknown but knowable states’: to suggest there was more to life than meets the eye. She first encountered Surrealism in New York in the 1930s. In the 1940s, her powerful self-portrait Birthday 1942 attracted the attention of fellow artist Max Ernst – they married in 1946. Her work from this time combines the…
