We have rounded up a selection of upcoming shows for you to see brought to you in a regular weekly snapshot
In the coming week there is:
Mark Adams: Third Space – Landscape & Windows
Opening 28 February – 11 April 2015
This is a solo show by photographer Mark Adams who became PS Mirabel’s 2014 open exhibition winner. A retrospective which includes new works, Adams focuses on the ‘third space’ as the subject of this exhibition. The ‘third space’ is a place where according to theorist Edward Soja, ‘everything comas together…subjectivity and objectivity, the abstract and the concrete, the real and the imagined, structure and agency’. Landscape & Windows includes photographs from Spain, the U.S, Sweden and Northern England. He explores acts such as walking, voyeurism and flânuership in relation to the practice of street and landscape photography.
16 Mirabel Street
Opening 9 April – 2 May 2015
“Flânerie, that wonderfully liberating art of urban wandering, is second nature to Hermès, one could even say our most profound nature” – this is Artistic Director Pierre-Alexis Dumas’ proclamation about Hermès philosophy and thus setting the stage for their upcoming show at the Saatchi Gallery. Using a Parisian-styled backdrop as its landscape, Wanderland takes the visitors themselves and positions them as flâneurs, unexpectedly revelling into a dream world of fantasy and joy. eleven rooms are present and feature installations and works in various media by a diverse selection of artists.

——————————————————Jacob Dahlgren: Third Uncle
Opening 27 February – 25 April 2015
A series of new abstract paintings by Swedish born artist Jacob Dahlgren. He uses live electrical cables in conjunction with bright and bold acrylic painted MDF boards. His circuits meander into the paintings and back out, littering the floor with their curled up excess lengths. His work sits between painting and installation, interrupting the gallery space with TV’s, lamps and other appliances which are connected to his circuits proposing a consideration between form and function.
61 Conduit Street
——————————————————Jason Rhoades: Four Roads
Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art
Opening 6 March – 31 May 2015
An exhibition of the late Jason Rhoades who lived in worked in Los Angeles occupies BALTIC’s two largest floors. It includes four installations to be navigated by four different interpretive paths. It takes a biographic approach to Rhoades as well as presenting the ideas and thoughts he examined in his work such as language, scale, indexing and economies. His works are typically overloaded with objects and systems, creating a multi-sensory spectacle. His extravagant use of materials and processes rewards those who carefully engage.

Newcastle upon Tyne
Opening 13 March – 16 May 2015
Berlin-based artist Jens Wolf is having his first UK solo exhibition at the Ronchini Gallery. He paints geometric shapes and patters onto plywood panels exploring colour, shape and flatness. The exhibition includes new works as well as a site-specific wall painting. Wolf’s work is inspired by the abstract movements of the 20th century, referencing similar themes and motifs with artists such as Josef Albers and Frank Stella. Many of his works feature what some of his abstract contemporaries might consider as ‘imperfections’, vulnerabilities and signs of distress that emphasise his individual expression.
22 Dering Street
——————————————————Slip of the Tongue
Punta della Dogana
Opening 12 April – 31 December 2015
Slip of the Tongue features over 120 works by 46 international artists such as Sigmar Polke, Pablo Picasso, Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Fischli & Weiss. This is the first time that Punta della Dogana has invited an artist to take both the role of curator and artist in collaboration with a number of other artists also. The hand of the curator is put into critical perception in this show, looking at what happens to objects when used after their fabrication and creation. Slip of the Tongue explores the classical definition of the curator from the era of the Roman Empire as one who administrates public utilities. Placing the contemporary curator as an individual with such responsibilities, this show navigates this culture that values reuse and recycling over tabula rasa.
