This autumn, Kettle’s Yard is keeping up appearances with not one but two impactful exhibitions to add to the city’s already loaded arts scene
Untitled: Art on the conditions of our time – an exhibition that brings together the work of ten British African diaspora artists – will be running until 3 October. Exploring the long-standing historical convention of leaving artworks ‘untitled’, the exhibition is made up of pieces that sidestep over-contextualisation. Instead, they spotlight the connections between art, culture and society, without the identity-focused labels that often cloud how they are viewed.
In addition to Untitled, British Indian artist Sutapa Biswas will bring her vital works to Kettle’s Yard as part of her Lumen exhibition. The artist’s visually disruptive, challenging works highlight the limitations of Eurocentric discourse, examining gender, identity and desire – and the integral roles they play in understanding our everyday lives. The first substantial solo show from the artist in 14 years, you can see it for yourself from 16 October.
