Our current exhibition finishes soon!
STRUCTURE – Visualising the unseen
There is only one week left until our current exhibition ends and it is definitely worth a visit. As a final event, the exhibition is becoming part of this year’s Cambridge Alumni Festival programme, which is running from Friday 26 September to Sunday 28 September 2014.
We have two exciting shows coming up in October, the exhibition openings will be in the ARB on Saturday 4 October from 3-5 pm, all are welcome!
Tim Oelman – 52 Days to Timbuktu
Mohammed Djazmi – Social Commentary
Mohammed Djazmi’s work represents the effect of corruption on society. Djazmi’s experiences of monarchy, theocracy and democracy in both Iran and the United Kingdom have played an inspirational role in these creations.While growing up in a socially free Iran in the 1960s and ‘70s, he realized that, while we were free to do what we wanted, we could not say what we thought. In his eyes art is an extremely incisive means of social commentary, and only those who are a part of a particular society can accurately reflect it through art.
Festival of Ideas 2014
Art at the ARB are taking part in the Festival of Ideas, this year with exhibition tours by artists Tim Oelman and Mohammed Djazmi.
Meet in the foyer of the Alison Richard Building on Saturday 25 October at 1.00pm for Tim Oelman’s tour and at 2.30pm for Mohammed Djazmi’s tour. These events are free and everyone is welcome to attend.
Art Language Location
Another festival taking place in Cambridge!
Art Language Location (ALL) is a public art festival taking place from 16 October to 2 November 2014 in locations throughout Cambridge, featuring 50 innovative and experimental contemporary artists from across the UK and beyond who use text in their work.
Each artist must find an appropriate venue for their work: the resulting intervention creates a conversation between artist, artwork and location. This extended exhibition aims to punctuate the city with a series of visually exciting and unexpected encounters in which our everyday interactions with text can be explored and challenged.
Visitors are invited to track down the artworks across Cambridge, and in so doing, discover some fascinating and lesser-known corners of the city. A programme of supporting events and activities will critique, investigate and articulate the work being shown.
