Exhibition: Trans-form – Trevor Bell

  • 16 April — 26 May 2018 *on now

Trans-Form presents a selection of major works spanning the last three decades of award-winning artist Trevor Bell’s career, including the most recent paintings and favoured works from the artist’s personal archive.

Along with other significant artists who were working in St Ives in the 1950s, Trevor Bell (1930-2017), helped establish British art on the international stage. He also spent 20 years living and working in America and showed work on both sides of the Atlantic.

Trans-Form is the last exhibition supervised by Trevor Bell who passed away in November 2017. Recently, Bell embarked upon a dialogue between mark making and contemporary dance in collaboration with the choreographer, the late Rodger Belman.

Trans-Form celebrates Bell’s engagement with how the physical energies of a painting can transcend the object’s form and includes a specially commissioned audio/physical visual response, featuring a musical score by Jamie Mills and dance choreographed and performed by Sarah Fairhall.

Trans-Form is conceived and curated by Joseph Clarke.

This is a partnership exhibition delivered by Peninsula Arts and The Box, Plymouth.

Opening times: Monday-Friday 10:00-17:00, Saturday 11:00-16:00 (closed Bank Holidays)

Synesthesia: Alumni Show

  • 9 — 23 June 2018

Synesthesia – the sparking of a sensory or cognitive pathway that leads to a new way of thinking. A function that is the very basis of creativity, where one idea leads to another and inspiration is fired through testing, experimenting, making and doing.

Running alongside the University’s Degree Show, this exhibition brings together some of the finest alumni from the University of Plymouth’s School of Art, Design and Architecture, including artists, designers, filmmakers, illustrators, photographers and architects, who since graduating have built successful careers within their respective fields.

From social enterprises to surfboard design, hard-hitting social documentaries and memorable brand campaigns, come and see how creatives are changing our world.
During the exhibition, we will host a number of talks and workshops with the artists.

Exhibition: Collected Shadows

  • 6 July — 1 September 2018

This exhibition of 200 photographs is drawn from the extensive collection of the Archive of Modern Conflict (AMC). The AMC was first established 25 years ago as a repository for vernacular photography and ephemera relating to the First and Second World Wars. It has since grown to a total of eight million images encompassing a plethora of subject matter – not solely defined by war and conflict – collected from diverse sources all over the world.

Curated by AMC Director, Timothy Prus, Collected Shadows offers a glimpse into these extraordinary holdings. This eclectic display includes scientific, astronomical and botanical studies, studio sittings, portraits and private snapshots, press photographs, film stills and aerial photographs from several wars, as well as a rich and unpredictable array of works we would simply have to call art.

A Hayward Touring exhibition from Southbank Centre, London, organised in collaboration with the Archive of Modern Conflict, London.

Please note, photography is not allowed in the Gallery.

Exploring childhood, adolescence, nationhood and citizenship, Dr Carly Adams, Associate Professor of Kinesology and Physical Education at the University of Lethbridge considers how social and moral reform initiatives have impacted leisure spaces in early 20th-century Canada.

Performance: Trans-form - Sound & Dance

  • 12 May 2018 7-9pm

In 2014 and subsequent years, Trevor Bell collaborated with the choreographer, the late Roger Belman. It was a collaboration that explored the relationship between mark making and contemporary dance.

As a fitting homage to this work, and congruent with the University of Plymouth’s seasonal theme of ‘transformations’, this reflective and dynamic engagement between Bell’s paintings, Jamie Mills’ sound score, and dance co-devised and performed by Sarah Fairhall and Lois Taylor, both celebrates and makes palpable, Bell’s engagement with how the physical energies of a painting can transcend the object’s form. 'Trans-form' is conceived and curated by Joseph Clarke.

Promotional shot for film Remembrance (1982), featuring Gary Oldman and John Altman

Film: Remembrance (1982)

  • 14 May 2018 7-9:15pm

A sell-out in November, and now back by popular demand to coincide with Plymouth History Festival, Remembrance following a group of Devonport-based Royal Navy ratings, due to sail to America for a six-month NATO exercise. On their last night in port they go out on the town, hitting Plymouth's notorious Union Street district, with violent results.

The film features a distinctive Brian Eno soundtrack, significant early performances from British actors who have gone on to establish significant careers such as Gary Oldman, Timothy Spall and John Altman. It is also a compelling time capsule of ‘80s Plymouth and featured many local residents and Navy personnel as extras in the film.

The film’s writer Hugh Stoddart will introduce the film.

The film will be preceded by an introduction to the Plymouth After Dark project, a four year exploration of the wide range of activities that take place across the City when the lights go down, led by Tony Davey, Learning Development Officer, Plymouth Museums Galleries Archives. It will be accompanied by a screening of short films, produced by the University’s BA Media Arts students.

Music: Matana Roberts and Kelly Jayne Jones

  • 17 May 2018 7-9pm

A very special series of sonic episodes brings together US mixed-media composer/saxophonist Matana Roberts and UK improviser and flautist Kelly Jayne Jones. These are two artists from disparate backgrounds, finding affinity in practices charged by fiercely personal philosophies on sound and its potential within a patchwork of genre, texture and meaning.

Matana is an internationally renowned composer, band leader, saxophonist, sound experimentalist and mixed-media practitioner. Kelly Jayne Jones makes use of varying combinations of prepared recordings, text, rocks, found sounds and flute.

Matana and Kelly will weave their own approaches into live collaborative works informed by deeply expressive playing, tactile electro-acoustic interplay and a broader shared politics of resistance/defiance.

This performance is commissioned by OUTLANDS; the new national experimental music touring network and is supported by Arts Council England and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
