More about the exhibitions:
A new exhibition of work by four artists, each competing for £16,500 prize money and the title of sixth Northern Art Prize winner, will feature new and specially reconfigured work by shortlisted artists Margaret Harrison, Rosalind Nashashibi, Emily Speed and Joanne Tatham & Tom O’Sullivan.
The first institutional solo exhibition devoted to Filliou (1926-87) in the UK. It considers Filliou’s work outside of his close ties to Fluxus in order to focus specifically on his sculptural output and his concern with objects. This exhibition asks the question: when does an everyday object become a sculpture?
Donald Weber – Interrogations
Acclaimed Canadian photojournalist, Donald Weber, is set to unveil his latest project Interrogations at White Cloth Gallery, Leeds, for the first time in the UK. The result of a seven year journey through the Ukraine and Russia, the award-winning exhibition consists of a series of portraits taken during the four months Weber spent inside an unnamed police interrogation room in the Ukraine.
Maciej Dakowicz – Cardiff After Dark
Cardiff After Dark is the first monograph by British-based Polish photographer Maciej Dakowicz. Focussed around a few pedestrianized streets in the city centre, Dakowicz’s images capture nightlife fuelled by alcohol and emotions.
