Rosemary Mayer: Ways of Attaching installation view

Rosemary Mayer: Ways of Attaching at Spike Island, Bristol

Showing now at Bristol’s Spike Island, Ways of Attaching is the first ever institutional survey exhibition of artist Rosemary Mayer (1943-2014) and marks the first time that many of her works have ever travelled to the UK. Spanning three decades of Mayer’s career, the exhibition spotlights her intertextual referencing of historical artworks and writing, as well as the influence of Greek mythology and medieval literature on her work. These influences are demonstrated by the presentation of three fabric sculptures from her first solo exhibition - Galla Placidia, Hypsipyle and The Catherines, all named after various women from history and mythology and first shown at A.I.R., the first not-for-profit, artist-led gallery for women artists in the US, founded by Mayer in 1972. The exhibition also features works from later in Mayer’s career, in which the tone of her art grew darker, with black-and-white drawings of vessels overlaid with bleak text and works that seems to represent those of her early career coming apart and decomposing. The works on display are also supplemented by Mayer’s handmade book Passages and archival documentation of her ‘temporary monuments’ of the late 1970s, ephemeral installations designed to investigate the passing of time.

Notting Hill Carnival - Aztec (1997) Errol Lloyd

Paint Like the Swallow Sings Calypso at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge

Opening on 12th November and showing until 19th February 2023, Paint Like the Swallow Sings Calypso is a major new exhibition from Cambridge’s Kettle’s Yard. Curated in dialogue with artists Paul Dash, Errol Lloyd and John Lyons (born in Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad respectively), the exhibition considers the history, themes and artistic representations of Carnival through the lens of the Caribbean diaspora. The three curators were working in the UK during the period that the Kettle’s Yard collection was being established, creating a unique dialogue between the works and the gallery space, with pieces from the nearby Fitzwilliam Museum also being included for the first time. Bringing together works by 28 artists including Jean-Michel Moreau, Albrecht Dürer, Helen Frankenthaler, Avinash Chandra, David Bomberg, Graham Sutherland and Barbara Hepworth, the works on display will showcase the music, dancing, parades and folklore of Carnival through a unique, intercontinental lens.

Nashashibi/Skaer: Chimera installation view

Nashashibi/Skaer: Chimera at Cooper Art Gallery, Dundee

Nashashibi/Skaer, the joint practice of Turner Prize nominated artists Rosalind Nashashibi and Lucy Skaer, comes to Dundee with Chimera, their exhibition showing at Cooper Gallery until 10th December. Traversing mythology, history and the cyclical nature of life and ideas, the exhibition draws inspiration from the titular mythological creature, a beast created out of various incongruous elements to form ‘a composite being that in its very form unsettles the possibility of an archetype [and] encourages us to doubt the dominance of the real’. The show centres around three collaborative films featuring music, painting and drawing to further investigate these apparent incongruities. The three films - Our Magnolia (2009), Bear (2019) and Lamb (2021) - all give question to reality and perception, intersecting with each other to create a larger whole, much like the chimera of the show’s title.

Showing now at Bristol’s Spike Island, Ways of Attaching is the first ever institutional survey exhibition of artist Rosemary Mayer (1943-2014) and marks the first time that many of her works have ever travelled to the UK. Spanning three decades of Mayer’s career, the exhibition spotlights her intertextual referencing of historical artworks and writing, as well as the influence of Greek mythology and medieval literature on her work. These influences are demonstrated by the presentation of three fabric sculptures from her first solo exhibition - Galla Placidia, Hypsipyle and The Catherines, all named after various women from history and mythology and first shown at A.I.R., the first not-for-profit, artist-led gallery for women artists in the US, founded by Mayer in 1972. The exhibition also features works from later in Mayer’s career, in which the tone of her art grew darker, with black-and-white drawings of vessels overlaid with bleak text and works that seems to represent those of her early career coming apart and decomposing. The works on display are also supplemented by Mayer’s handmade book Passages and archival documentation of her ‘temporary monuments’ of the late 1970s, ephemeral installations designed to investigate the passing of time.

Notting Hill Carnival - Aztec (1997) Errol Lloyd

Paint Like the Swallow Sings Calypso at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge

Opening on 12th November and showing until 19th February 2023, Paint Like the Swallow Sings Calypso is a major new exhibition from Cambridge’s Kettle’s Yard. Curated in dialogue with artists Paul Dash, Errol Lloyd and John Lyons (born in Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad respectively), the exhibition considers the history, themes and artistic representations of Carnival through the lens of the Caribbean diaspora. The three curators were working in the UK during the period that the Kettle’s Yard collection was being established, creating a unique dialogue between the works and the gallery space, with pieces from the nearby Fitzwilliam Museum also being included for the first time. Bringing together works by 28 artists including Jean-Michel Moreau, Albrecht Dürer, Helen Frankenthaler, Avinash Chandra, David Bomberg, Graham Sutherland and Barbara Hepworth, the works on display will showcase the music, dancing, parades and folklore of Carnival through a unique, intercontinental lens.

Nashashibi/Skaer: Chimera installation view

Nashashibi/Skaer: Chimera at Cooper Art Gallery, Dundee

Nashashibi/Skaer, the joint practice of Turner Prize nominated artists Rosalind Nashashibi and Lucy Skaer, comes to Dundee with Chimera, their exhibition showing at Cooper Gallery until 10th December. Traversing mythology, history and the cyclical nature of life and ideas, the exhibition draws inspiration from the titular mythological creature, a beast created out of various incongruous elements to form ‘a composite being that in its very form unsettles the possibility of an archetype [and] encourages us to doubt the dominance of the real’. The show centres around three collaborative films featuring music, painting and drawing to further investigate these apparent incongruities. The three films - Our Magnolia (2009), Bear (2019) and Lamb (2021) - all give question to reality and perception, intersecting with each other to create a larger whole, much like the chimera of the show’s title.

Dandy Style at Manchester Art Gallery

Focusing on the evolution of men’s fashion from the 18th century up to the present day, Dandy Style at the Manchester Art Gallery blends fashion and art, with works by Thomas Gainsborough, Thomas Lawrence, David Hockney and Peter James Field presented alongside those of photographers David Bailey, Olivia Rose and Jason Evans and fashion designers Tommy Nutter, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Ozwald Boateng.
