Ruskin Visual Gallery Arts The Ruskin Gallery is a unique exhibition space surrounded by artists’ studios on the Anglia Ruskin university campus. Open to the general public, all exhibitions are free and carefully selected to provide a singular and memorable gallery-going experience. The Ruskin Gallery welcomed visitors in spring 2012 to enjoy exhibitions such as Visualise, the public art initiative, which included work by Circumstance who created a mobile symphony across Cambridge with their sound walks. The gallery also held the Design Icons exhibition in collaboration with Creative Front and Movement in Location, displaying work by artist Lizzie Sykes. Autumn 2012 promises to be equally diverse and engaging with highlights including Sally Waterman’s exhibition, inspired by T. S. Eliot’s poem The Wasteland, and (Un)Sustainable? by Andy Webster, whose work encourages engagement with what the term ‘sustainability’ might mean. The Ruskin Gallery enormously enriches the cultural life of our university’s staff and students – an experience which we are delighted to be able to share with the wider community. We have increased our opening hours to now include Saturdays. Enjoy the gallery Monday – Saturday, 10.00am – 5.00pm. 10

(un)sustAinAble? Ruskin gallery and balcony Wednesday 21 november – thursday 13 december Private View: thursday 22 november, 5.00pm

The exhibition (Un)Sustainable? aims to encourage and explore responses to the idea of sustainability, a term that can be perceived both as a tired worn out cliché but also as an imperative for future thinking and acting. Andy Webster is interested in how arts practice can be used as a means to critically engage with difficult and complex terms such as these. Andy’s work is a sculptural practice that is often collaborative and integrates performance, moving image, sound, drawing and time. A common characteristic of his projects is that they are frequently set up in open-ended ways

AMong otheR things

so that feedback from the environment, such as sunlight, sound, humidity or participation from the audience, contributes to the unfolding of the work. For the exhibition (Un)Sustainable? Andy will make a new sculptural work that explores the potential of integrating DIY electronics, solar technologies, solar LEDs and found materials. His aim is to set up a temporary platform to consider, discuss and propose responses to the question ‘what is sustainable?’ and to encourage wider engagement with what a term such as ‘sustainability’ might mean.

Ruskin gallery and balcony

Wednesday 2 – thursday 31 January Private View: thursday 24 January, 5.00pm Among Other Things brings together objects, video, sound and installation by four contemporary, international artists who question what it means to produce work through encounters with and between people. At a time when the role, effect and stories of objects are undergoing renewed scrutiny and interest the exhibition asks what differences, if any, might be evident between encounters with ‘objects’ formed through relational practices, and those produced from the traditional artistic disciplines. The artworks in the exhibition reflect a multiplicity of ideas and approaches towards the process of artistic production including explorations of chance, dialogue, distribution and evolving strategies of engagement. Crucially, the artists in the exhibition engage with material outcomes to address social and political notions of agency, (re-)assembly and futurity. Here, beyond props to past events, and in a critical spirit of collectivity, the artists hint at potential events to come or yet to be imagined.

Frequent orchestral and choral concerts are mounted at venues in the city and a large array of smaller ensembles form a regular part of our university’s and city’s musical life. As well as performances in our own Recital Hall, there are also concerts and musicals in the Mumford Theatre, local churches, The Junction and West Road Concert Hall. Our regular series of Friday lunchtime concerts, which draws some of the world’s finest performers to our university, has become one of the highlights of Cambridge’s musical calendar. The series (directed by Alan Rochford) is generously supported by the Anglia Ruskin Arts Council and we are therefore able to offer free admission to all lunchtime concerts. We hope to welcome you to these events.

LuNCHTIME CONCERT SERIES bACh to bRitten Richard Jenkinson (solo cello) suite no 1 in g Major bWV 1007; Js bach Passacaglia for solo cello (1980); Walton suite no 1 op 72 (1964); britten Friday 23 november

14

All lunchtime concerts take place at the Mumford Theatre at 1.10pm, unless stated otherwise

The cello is allowed to shine by itself in JS Bach’s six suites for solo cello and Britten added to this repertoire with three further suites. They are complementary and when played together show the extreme influence and love of Bach that was inherent in Britten’s music. In this programme, in which the first of both their suites is played, one hears the beginning of this journey and those influences shining through yet again with the addition of William Walton’s Passacaglia.


LISTINGS Anglia Chamber Choir great st. Mary’s Church, Cambridge thursday 29 november, 7.30pm tickets: £6.00 (£4.00 concessions, £3.00 Anglia Ruskin students and children) Conductor – Paul Rhys From the Renaissance to the Present Day Anglia Chamber Choir, led by its Director Paul Rhys, presents a concert of a capella choral music and instrumental music spanning three centuries. The concert is presented in the beautiful surroundings of Great St Mary’s Church in the heart of Cambridge.

AngliA Ruskin oRChestRA And ChoRus West Road Concert hall, Cambridge Wednesday 12 december, 7.30pm tickets: £10.00 (£7.00 concessions, £5.00 Anglia Ruskin students & children) Conductor – Paul Jackson steve Reich – Music for Large Ensemble david Fanshawe – African Sanctus Anglia Ruskin Orchestra and Chorus join forces to present a programme of two seminal works from the 1970s. Steve Reich’s Music for Large Ensemble (1978) resulted from the composer’s studies of the ‘cantillation’ or ritual chanting of the Hebrew Scriptures in synagogue services. A bright, joyous and colourful work, characteristic of Reich’s fascination with shifting patterns and textures, Music for Large Ensemble forms the ideal companion to David Fanshawe’s famous African Sanctus of 1972. Scored for large chorus, percussion, piano, rock band and electronic tape, African Sanctus grew from Fanshawe’s activities as a composer, explorer and ethnomusicologist. using original field recordings made in Egypt, Sudan, uganda and Kenya between 1969 and 1973, Fanshawe drew together music of the western choral and African folk and religious traditions to create a celebratory and visionary work, expressing unity between people, their faiths and above all, their music.
