Exhibition Highlights, March 2018
Actions: The Image of the World Can be Different (Part I), Kettle's Yard, Cambridge
A mammoth, multi-site show which celebrates the reopening of Kettle's Yard after three years of expansion. Ambitious in size and in thematic, 'Actions' foregrounds the poetic, social and political potential of art in a global world, positioning both the role of artists- and seemingly that of the reinvigorated Kettle's Yard- as necessary for a more hopeful and stimulating future.
The diverse roster of artists include locally-based Emma Smith and Anna Brownsted, artists associated with their collection such as Ben Nicholson and Edmund de Waal, alongside the likes of John Akomfrah, Nathan Coley and Oscar Murillo.
10 February – 2 April 2018 | Kettle's Yard , University of Cambridge, Castle Street, Cambridge, CB3 0AQ | Opening times Tuesday - Sunday 11am - 5pm. Closed Mondays | Free admission.
Fantomas, Caroline Achaintre, De La Warr Pavilion
Playful, propositional and provocative, Achaintre's ceramic and textile works serve to stimulate the imagination. Masks, characters or faces? Interpretations of these abstracted creations are wholly personal: and are all the more joyous because of this. Let your mind wander.
10 February – 2 April 2018 | De La Warr, Marina, Bexhill-on-Sea TN40 1DP | Opening times Monday - Friday 10am - 5pm | Free admission.
Interval [ ] still : now, Tintype Gallery, London.
A five person collaboration featuring painting and film. The subtleties of this layered show alter throughout the day, the space punctured through multiple projections. United by an interest in ‘the frame’, the installation has an underlying Beuysian quality that weaves across Tintype's programme.
2 March – 31 March | Tintype Gallery, 107 Essex Road, London N1 2SL | Gallery Open (during exhibitions) Wednesday – Saturday: 12pm to 6pm and by appointment | Free admission.
