THE HEPWORTH WAKEFIELD ANNOUNCES TRIO OF EXHIBITIONS FOR SPRING 2013:

NEW WORK BY ALICE CHANNER, JESSICA JACKSON HUTCHINS AND LINDER

· Alice Channer presents a major new work entitled Invertebrates

· American artist Jessica Jackson Hutchins presents new work for her first solo exhibition in a UK public art gallery

· Linder Sterling will exhibit new works exploring her interest in collage, including light-box sculptures, cut-paper collages, film and a major new performance work, entitled The Ultimate Form

· Iconic British fashion designer Pam Hogg, Cinematic Orchestra guitarist Stuart McCallum and Northern Ballet’s award-winning choreographer Kenny Tindall will collaborate with Linder on her 'living collage' performance, The Ultimate Form

· Each artist’s exhibition will present new works that engage with their interest in feminist art and long-standing interest in the legacy of Barbara Hepworth’s work

Opening on 16 February and running until 12 May 2013, this is the third of a series of spring exhibitions that explore common concerns and themes in the work of some of the most innovative contemporary artists.

 

Spring 2013 sees The Hepworth Wakefield present three separate but linked exhibitions by artists Alice Channer, Jessica Jackson Hutchins and Linder. All three artists have engaged with and referred to the legacy of Barbara Hepworth as part of the process of making new works for their exhibitions at the gallery.

 

Light-boxes, collage, sculptures made from everyday objects and ambitious installations are among the diverse practices employed by each artist to explore various representations of the human body. This will be the solo debut of American born, Berlin-based Jessica Jackson Hutchins in a UK public institution; Alice Channer’s new work develops from her recent solo show at South London Gallery; and Linder builds on work inspired by a residency and performance at Tate St. Ives.
