Hope of Wrecks Curated by Andrew Marsh and Simon Hollington Adam Norton, Jo Addisson, Chris Doborlowloski, Daniel Goodwin, Friedrich Kunath, Martin Kippenberger, Ali Tareen, David Ersser, Kypros Kyprianou. In a world dominated by financial, environmental and ethical crisis it seems a fitting moment to explore how contemporary artists address the term ‘hope’ both personally and politically.

13 September – 19 October Art and Design Gallery 13 September – 27 October Museum of St Albans Open: Museum of St Albans Monday to Saturday, 10.00am - 5.00pm Sunday, 2.00pm - 5.00pm Art and Design Gallery Monday to Friday, 9.30am - 5.30pm Saturday, 9.30am - 3.30pm

Hope of Wrecks intends to explore how certain Admission: Free artists produce works, which have an inherent optimism or hope when seemingly either they, or the world that surrounds them, is at ‘rock bottom’. This optimism whether it is overt or underlying can take many strategies and narratives, such as humour, satire, honesty, naivety or faith. Supported by BA(Hons) Criticism, Communication at Central Saint Martins.

Venue: Museum of St Albans Open: Monday to Saturday, 10.00am - 5.00pm Sunday, 2.00pm - 5.00pm Admission: Free

Thanks for Giving Me a Sky, But I Am Not a Bird Augustin Rebetez 14 November – 2 February 2014 Meandering between drawing, photography, sculpture and astonishing stop-motion animations, Augustin Rebetez’ work represents something completely individual and fresh. Using a range of contemporary materials like plaster, masking tape, marker pens and plastic wrap, old roller skates, construction materials and car tyres, Rebetez is creating his own visual language. Myth and fairytale are expressed with an underlying malevolence, and supposedly joyous European traditions like carnival with an unexpected melancholy.

31 January 2014 – 14 March 2014 Black and white photosensitive paper and light – two fundamentals of photography – are at the heart of F&D Cartier’s fascinating exhibition. Unexposed photographic paper, some over 100 years old – is exposed and through a subtle interplay with space and light, the chromatic transformation of the paper begins. Dependent on its composition and the nature of its contact with light, the paper develops random colour patterns over time. To perceive the progressive saturation of the paper, the spectator is asked to be patient and to remain still for a few moments in order to observe this latent process. A collaboration with ffotogallery, Cardiff - supported by Pro Helvetia (Swiss Arts Council), Swiss Cultural Fund in Britain and Swisslos Culture Canton de Berne. Venue: Museum of St Albans Open: Monday to Saturday, 10.00am - 5.00pm Sunday, 2.00pm - 5.00pm Admission: Free
