'3rd Mardin Biennial: Mythologies', 2014, Turkey

'3rd Mardin Biennial: Mythologies', 2014, Turkey

'3rd Mardin Biennial, Mythologies', 

Please note the biennial has been postponed because of the social and political situation in the region. 

Mardin is centrally located within a geography of antique civilizations, stretching from Egypt to India. Despite the cultural destruction it has undergone due to the political and economical violence of recent years, it still retains noteworthy traces of the symbolic world, the universe of icons and myths, the art and literature it has created, amassed and, in turn, benefitted for centuries. These traces still survive in the daily lives of Mardin’s inhabitants, in their living environment as much as in the ethnographical and architectural heritage of the city.

The Nuisance of Landscape: Grizedale - The Sequel

10 October - 20 December 2014

Venue: Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Cumbria

This lively and stimulating show looks back at the recent history of Grizedale Arts and tells the story – sometimes serious, sometimes irreverent – of how an arts agency in a rural corner of England has expanded its reach from working with local Cumbrian communities to a global model for contemporary art practice. Central to its philosophy is an emphasis on the use value of art – from their HQ at Lawson Park, above Coniston Water, Grizedale Arts runs a programme of residencies and events that promote the creation of art as an instrument for social change and improvement both locally and within the wider community.
