Contemporary artworks including new commissions by Ming Wong and Anicka Yi will feature in a new group exhibition at Cornerhouse, Double Indemnity.

Jamie Shovlin: Hiker Meat
- 18 January — 21 April 2014
An exploitation film that never actually existed is being ‘remade’ for a new exhibition at Cornerhouse - the biggest to date by conceptual artist Jamie Shovlin. The movie Hiker Meat, and its 1970s Italian director Jesus Rinzoli, have been imagined by Shovlin to represent an archetype of the exploitation genre, which boomed from the late 1960s to early 1980s.

Clifford Owens: Better the Rebel You Know
- 10 May — 17 August 2014
The exhibition will include an exclusive UK iteration of Owens’ work Anthology, which debuted in MoMA PS1’s eponymous exhibition in 2011 in New York City. The work originated from a series of 28 performance 'scores': short, diverse sets of instructions (some very specific, others open to interpretation) that Owens solicited from a selection of African American artists, from established to emerging figures.
