Across four weeks Kettle’s Yard will present a programme of quick-fire exhibitions, each lasting for only one week.
fig-futures at Kettle’s Yard begins with a presentation of A Setup, a collaboration between renowned sculptor Eva Rothschild and choreographer Joe Moran. Rothschild’s architectural structures will occupy the Sackler Gallery along with two dancers who will perform live in the spaces each day during the exhibition.
For week two, artist Oreet Ashery’s sonic performance Passing Through Metal will be staged for the first time in the UK, involving participants from Cambridge creating sound through mass knitting, accompanied by a heavy metal band. Ashery’s award winning video series Revisiting Genesis will also be screened.
New work by artists Broomberg & Chanarin will be displayed in week three, and new performances and installations by Patrick Coyle and Francesco Pedraglio will take place in week four.
Each of the four projects will start with free public events on Monday and Tuesday evenings in an exciting, exclusive opportunity to explore the spaces when they would usually be closed. Join us every week throughout the exhibition for Monday and Tuesday night previews including live performances between 6-8pm.
The exhibitions will be open from Tuesday – Saturday 11am–5pm for weeks 1, 2 and 3 and Wednesday – Saturday 11am – 5pm for week 4.
This project is in partnership with Norwich Castle Museum.
