Welcome to orkshire England’s biggest & most colourful canvas The stunning Sutton Bank in North Yorkshire


The idea of Art in Yorkshire is a simple one - to encourage people to explore the huge variety of public art galleries across Yorkshire during 2011. This rich and exciting programme ranges from contemporary to Victorian art, and includes famous names such as Damien Hirst, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore and David Hockney. The fabulous new gallery The Hepworth Wakefield also opens its doors to us this summer.

T

ate has been supportive of the year from the outset. We have appreciated the collaboration on different aspects of the initiative and, most of all, we are delighted that so many works from the national collection will be coming to Yorkshire in 2011. The nineteen partners represent all aspects of city and rural life in our beautiful county. Through Art in Yorkshire – supported by Tate this is a chance to experience Yorkshire’s long and strong cultural tradition that has resulted in such a rich choice of public art galleries. This booklet gives a flavour of what’s on offer over the year and will help you plan your visits near to home and further afield. Watch out for the two seasonal leaflets giving more information about planned events; keep up to date with all that’s happening at www.yorkshire.com/artinyorkshire.

Hockneyi in Yorkshirei

SHOW YORK S BRAD FORD HULL

David Hockney’s most ambitious painting to date, Bigger Trees near Warter will be on show in Yorkshire throughout 2011. First exhibited at the Royal Academy in 2007 and presented to Tate, it is the first time that this painting will be on display in the UK outside London. It launches the Art in Yorkshire – supported by Tate year at York Art Gallery in February before touring to the Ferens Art Gallery, Hull and Cartwright Hall, Bradford.

Art in Yorkshire Artists

www.yorkshire.com/artinyorkshire


To create this remarkable, fifty panel painting, Hockney used a combination of traditional techniques and new technology. Measuring twelve metres in length and four in height, it took six weeks to complete. Each individual canvas was painted en plein air (in the open air), a method used by the French Impressionists and their followers. Digital technology helped Hockney meet the challenge of making such a huge piece of work. As each canvas was painted, his assistant photographed each stage, to create a computer mosaic of the whole, allowing him to view the overall painting. The East Yorkshire landscape in all its seasons has inspired this Bradford born artist for the last seven years – an area he knew well as a boy. This evocative

view near the village of Warter, captures the landscape just before the arrival of Spring and before the trees have come into leaf.

The Painting had to be done in one go. Once I started, I had to carry on until it was finished. The deadline wasn’t the Royal Academy. The deadline was the arrival of Spring which changes things. David Hockney

ContemporaryiArti in Yorkshirei Universal themes are explored by major contemporary artists in exhibitions at Leeds, Sheffield and York. Their playful, mysterious and sometimes provocative ideas stay in the mind.

SHOW S LE SHEFEDS FIELD YORK

Damien Hirst explores the timeless themes of birth, illness, death and religion through photography, painting, installation and sculpture. The exhibition, which comes to Leeds Art Gallery in July is part of ARTIST ROOMS, a new collection of modern art gifted to Tate and National Galleries of Scotland by the art collector and curator Anthony d’Offay.

Cornelia Parker’s evocative installation Thirty Pieces of Silver comprises over 1000 objects. Once spoons, candlesticks or teapots - now flattened into thirty disks, they hover above the ground. The biblical reference to betrayal is made all the more poignant by the deconsecrated medieval church interior of York St Mary’s. On display from 28 May.

ARTIST ROOMS On Tour is an inspired partnership with the Art Fund - the fundraising charity for works of art, and the Scottish ON TOUR WITH THE Government, making available the ARTIST ROOMS collection of international contemporary art to galleries throughout the UK. ARTIST ROOMS is jointly owned by Tate and National Galleries of Scotland and was established through The d’Offay Donation in 2008, with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Art Fund and the Scottish and British Governments.

Museums Sheffield: Millennium Gallery shows Ian Breakwell’s The Other Side in October. Filmed on the balcony of the 1930s De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhillon-Sea, elderly couples ballroom dance to the slowed down rhythm of a Schubert nocturne, overlaid by the haunting sounds of waves and seagulls.

ContemporaryiArti in Yorkshirei Contemporary art is at its most international in West Yorkshire this spring, with powerful exhibitions of film, installation and sculpture at The Chapel, and Longside Gallery in Yorkshire Sculpture Park, and a public art project to mark the much anticipated opening of The Hepworth Wakefield in May. The Iranian artist Shirin Neshat now lives in exile in the USA and her work reflects the dislocation she feels between her adopted home and the place of her birth. In Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s atmospheric Chapel, her 17 minute film Soliloquy follows the artist as she roams between two different cities, one western, one eastern, exploring the two sides of her identity. At Longside Gallery, Structure and Material, an Arts Council Collection exhibition focuses on the ways three artists, Claire Barclay, Becky Beasley and Karla Black have co-opted familiar and unlikely sculptural materials to create new, evocative and sometimes fragile forms. The exhibition features examples from the Arts Council Collection and new works.

Heather and Ivan Morison are designing a site-specific work to mark the launch of The Hepworth Wakefield. It will take the form of an outdoor arena for people to gather, relax, entertain and enjoy the waterfront location. The Morisons create powerful and sensory works that explore architecture and the notion of escape and refuge, making art as an active engagement with materials, histories, sites and processes.

I can never call any place home. I will forever be in a state of in between. Shirin Neshat

Sculpturei in Yorkshirei

SHOW S L WAKEEDS EFIEL D

The renowned sculpture of Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore is celebrated in West Yorkshire this year with major exhibitions in Wakefield and Leeds, offering a unique opportunity to explore the range of their work in gallery and landscape settings. The work of a master of Modern British Art, Jacob Epstein is shown at Harewood House. The Henry Moore exhibition comes to Leeds Art Gallery in March and Barbara Hepworth’s sculpture will be at the centre of the collection displays at The Hepworth Wakefield, Yorkshire’s major new gallery opening this May. The gallery will present a gift of over 40 rarely exhibited original plasters from the artist’s estate as well as significant loans from Tate. Both artists were passionate about landscape and the open air: their sculpture can also be seen at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, with Henry Moore in the Country Park, The Arts Council Collection’s holdings of Moore in Longside Gallery’s Project Space and Barbara Hepworth on Hillside. Moore and Hepworth were pioneers of 20th century modern art. Born five years apart and living a matter of miles from each other in Castleford and Wakefield, both were conscious of how their Yorkshire roots informed their work. While Moore often made powerful sculptures drawn from the human figure, Hepworth created abstract compositions of great clarity and beauty. Art in Yorkshire Artists

Finding Adam at Harewood House celebrates a master of modern British sculpture, Sir Jacob Epstein. The sculpture Adam returns home to Harewood after conservation and this is celebrated in a major exhibition about the making of the sculpture. It reveals for the first time Lord Harewood’s role in the life and times of this heroic alabaster carving and its journey from Blackpool sideshow to national acclaim.

All my early memories are of forms and shapes and textures. Moving through and over the West Riding landscape with my father in his car, the hills were sculptures; the roads defined the form. Barbara Hepworth

Photographyi in Yorkshirei

SH BRADOWS F HULLORD

The National Media Museum, The Ferens Gallery and Impressions Gallery present a range of exhibitions, from the photographic pioneers of the last 180 years, solo exhibitions by two exceptional photographers to a vibrant project with young Bradfordians, inspired by fashion and contemporary style. At the National Media Museum The Lives of the Great Photographers includes photographs by William Henry Fox Talbot, Julia Margaret Cameron and Weegee. It highlights some of the most famous and memorable images ever produced, and illuminates the extraordinary lives the photographers led. Also at the National Media Museum David Spero presents photographs of houses, commercial properties and shopping parades that have been adopted as places of worship. His photographs show the importance of the sense of community offered by religious belief and demonstrate that the divine may exist in the most unlikely places. Inspired by photographer Daniele Tamagni, and his flamboyantly clothed Gentlemen of Bacongo, young Asian men have been working with Paul Floyd Blake at Impressions Gallery to produce Gentlemen of Bradford, their own ‘mash-up’ exhibition revealing their feelings about fashion, style and identity.

The work of the American photographer Francesca Woodman is shown at the Ferens Art Gallery. Her small yet powerful silver gelatin prints have gained a cult following since her death, aged 22. 18 works now form part of ARTIST ROOMS, a new collection of modern art gifted to Tate and National Galleries of Scotland by the art collector and curator Anthony d’Offay. ARTIST ROOMS On Tour is an inspired partnership with the Art Fund - the fundraising charity for works of art, and the Scottish Government, making available ON TOUR WITH THE the ARTIST ROOMS collection of international contemporary art to galleries throughout the UK.

Artists andiWritersi in Yorkshirei Artists in three evocative exhibitions at Haworth, West Yorkshire, Coxwold and Hutton-le-Hole, North Yorkshire unlock the lives and imaginations of some major figures of English literature and the artists who have lived in Yorkshire. The Brontës’ home, Haworth Parsonage is visited by thousands of people, eager to experience the story of their lives. But is everything really as it seems? In Personal Tempest, the artist Catherine Bertola uses scientific methods to look beyond surface appearances to touch their past, revealing the sounds of the house and the letters they wrote. Laurence Sterne’s novel, Tristram Shandy has entertained readers since the 18th century. In Volume III, page 169 is made of marbled paper – hand-produced, so unique to each volume. This ‘motly emblem’ represents the spirit of chance in Tristram Shandy that is central to this exhibition. At Shandy Hall, Sterne’s home in North Yorkshire, 169 contemporary artists and writers create their own Emblem of My Work but who has made which one?

Poet, critic, military hero and pacifist, thinker, philosopher and son of Ryedale - Herbert Read used his gifts as a writer to communicate the power of modern art to others. Yorkshire Modern at Ryedale Folk Museum celebrates his enduring influence on culture through the 20th century artists he championed.

I want to make a work that breathes life into the static rooms of the museum, and reinstates a sense of the sisters’ creativity that once filled the air of this house. Catherine Bertola

Experiment andi Tradition in Yorkshire Exhibitions in York, Barnsley and Huddersfield reveal how 20th century artists contributed to new ideas that continue to be important to today’s generation of artists. In 1924 the London, Midland & Scottish Railway Company took on the emerging specialism of graphic design, asking: can fine artists create successful posters? By commissioning paintings from Royal Academy artists and reproducing them as posters they aimed to show “all that is good in British Art”. Many of the original paintings and posters can be seen alongside other works by the artists, in The Art of Advertising: Posters & Paintings by Royal Academy Artists in the National Railway Museum’s new gallery. In Barnsley, Glorious England presents the changing nature of our landscape, interpreted by important 20th century figures such as Vanessa Bell, WR Sickert, Paul Nash and Prunella Clough. The exhibition includes new work by Yorkshire artist Keith Mountain.

Fields of Contention revisits two controversies separated by 18 years around the purchase of Henry Moore’s Falling Warrior at Huddersfield in 1958 and Carl Andre’s infamous ‘Bricks’ (Equivalent VIII) at Tate in 1976, sparking a public and media controversy that still resonates today. This Huddersfield exhibition includes these and other works from a generation of artists interested in construction and minimalism, together with a commission from contemporary artist Sara Staton, whose art builds on the legacy of this generation.

These bricks have really brought the public in. They can’t make head or tail of them. Nothing has attracted as much attention as they have. Tate Gallery assistant, 1976

Victorian Paintersi in Yorkshirei Famous in their own time but less well known today, the paintings of William Etty, Atkinson Grimshaw and John Martin feature in exhibitions at York, Harrogate and Sheffield that shed new light on their lives and their art. From early years in obscurity, York born William Etty finally won national recognition in the 1820s. His passion for the Old Masters gave him a life-long love of sumptuously coloured scenes from history and a fascination with the human body. Praised for his ideas but condemned for showing “nakedness without purity”, how will we judge him today? See the exhibition in York. Atkinson Grimshaw is still admired for his atmospheric effects of moonlight and Autumn melancholy, but these finely crafted paintings also reveal the new life of the city. Born in Leeds, he left a good job with the railway to become one of the most successful artists of his generation. See the exhibition in Harrogate.

SHOW S Y HARRORK SHEFOGATE FIELD

John Martin’s spectacular, apocalyptic scenes once travelled the country, thrilling audiences with their epic scale. From humble beginnings as a glass painter, his fans included the Brontës and Dickens. Shunned by the artistic establishment of the day, Martin’s imagination influenced early cinema and connects us to culture today. See the exhibition in Sheffield and participate in the Great British Art Debate. The Great British Art Debate is a partnership project between Tate Britain, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums, Norfolk Museums & Archaeology Service and Museums Sheffield. It is supported by The National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund, and by the MLA’s Renaissance programme.
