    - Exhibitions
    Material Language Exhibition

    Material Language is a collaborative exhibition between four makers, who are commenting on our relationship with objects -hand-made, mass-manufactured or through nostalgia and memory.

    Chris Banks, Elaine McCully andRhiannon Ewing – James are bound by a fascination with the stuff of everyday life. They each recognise the ability of certain objects and materials to resonate with meaning – memories of childhood, domestic routines and the human touch – that is, both a physical and aesthetic ‘touch.’ It is often the most ordinary objects that can induce the most nostalgia, and a desire to hoard, collect and arrange meaningfully. Each artist has a distinct approach to conveying the ‘language’ of material. Each firmly believes it is a commonly spoken and understood language. They invite you to look at the artworks, and find fresh eyes for looking again at the ‘ordinary.’

    Dates: 19 May - 15 June 2018

    PROCESSIONS

    YOU are invited to play your part in PROCESSIONS – one of the largest participatory artworks ever created. Produced by Artichoke and commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, PROCESSIONS marks 100 years since some women in the UK won the vote. It was a big moment and we are celebrating it in a really big way. On Sunday 10th June 2018, join thousands of women to form four epic PROCESSIONS in the four political capitals of the UK – Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London.

    Women and girls, those who identify as women and non-binary individuals of all ages and backgrounds, are invited to create four living portraits of women today and walk with banners, pennants and flags they have made to express the lives, ideas and hopes of women in the 21st century.
