NEXUS: Meetings at the Edge

NEXUS: Meetings at the Edge

  • Kirkcaldy Galleries, War Memorial Gardens (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This exhibition looks at some of the ways in which 21st-century artists and makers are changing preconceptions about their art forms.

Jewellery, silversmithing, textiles and ceramics all have long histories and deep-rooted traditions behind them. Today their familiar, often restricting, boundaries are being expanded by makers taking leaps of imagination and devising fresh approaches to the way they work.

The exhibitors in Nexus are linked by great technical skill, a capacity for free-thinking and confidence in their ideas. However, each has found their own way of extending the boundaries of their art form.

Nexus celebrates the unexpected. None of the work in this exhibition may be quite what it seems…

Curated by Dr Elizabeth Goring for Fife Contemporary in collaboration with Ruthin Craft Centre, Wales, it features 20 artists from around Britain and Ireland.

Donachie presents a major mid-career exhibition of sculpture, installation, photography, film and drawings, all rooted in an exploration of the individual, family and collective identity.

For this exhibition in particular, she has made a series of new sculptures and installations, which are shown in the context of two significant existing works, each specifically reconfigured and re-presented at the Fruitmarket Gallery.

res.:
On the evening of Thursday the 2nd of November at 10 PM, GMT we invite your soul to take flight into an all-night phantasmagoria of art, poetry and music, in which we will transcend reality to a realm of artistic inspiration that will quench your thirst for creativity until sunrise, when we shall descend like Icarus back to the banal pursuits of the earth.

“The war raged on and I sat by the sea and saw deep into the heart of humankind." (Charlotte Salomon, 1942)

As part of Griselda Pollock’s O.E Saunders Memorial Lecture (17th), The Art History Society and The Feminist Society are hosting a discussion group that will focus on the themes and issues that Pollock is going to discuss in her lecture on the Berlin-born artist Charlotte Salomon (1917-1943). The discussion will take its departure in Salomon’s artwork ‘Life? or Theatre?’ to consider larger themes such as the limitations of representation, visual testimony, trauma, namelessness in history and the act of documentation.

The Art History School President, Lily Ratcliff, will give a short introduction to Charlotte Salomon as well as her personal reflections on Holocaust art. The discussion does therefore not require that you are an art history student or familiar with Charlotte Salomon’s life and work beforehand. 

Please feel free to bring whatever you want to drink.
