…blip – showing Ellie Collins, Sweepings
Artist Ellie Collins’ detritus-filled installation based on the act and language of ‘sweeping’ is the inaugural exhibition for …blip, a new temporary art space in Grimsby run by Collins in collaboration with artist Marc Renshaw.

Until 23 November 2017, …blip, 8 Victoria Street, Grimsby DN31 1DP.
Ten 2 One
The Other MA presents the work of its first annual cohort. Ten artists have undertaken the 12-month alternative and self-directed educational project initiated by artist Emma Edmondson in partnership with Metal. A core premise of the programme is that it fits around the work, family, lives, budgets and locations of the participants – redressing some of the barriers of formal institutional education.
25 November 2017 – 3 February 2018, Beecroft Art Gallery, Victoria Avenue, Southend-on-Sea SS2 6EX.
Jacqueline Alkema, Mabli Jen Eustace, Llinos Thomas
An exhibition of works by three artists who each depict the human figure and their relationship to space. Whether staring out starkly at the viewer or enmeshed and abstracted within the spatial qualities of the painting, these works each convey a sense of intimacy and struggle.
Until 8 December 2017, BayArt, 54b/c Bute Street, Cardiff CF10 5AF.
This exhibition is the result of a series of artist residencies in a remote bothy, a lighthouse, a beachside golf course and a burial chamber, all on the Orkney Isles. It features a range of works that consider how our relationship to landscape is being changed by technology. Artists Natasha Rosling, Alexander Stevenson, Alistair Grant and Simon Lee Dicker present work in the highly managed, but nevertheless wild topography of Hestercombe gardens and galleries.
18 November 2017 – 25 February 2018, Hestercombe Gallery, Cheddon Fitzpaine, Taunton TA2 8LG.
Around the World in 80 Washing Lines
A multisensory, autism-friendly installation by artist Mahlia Amatina that explores the universal act of hanging washing out to dry as a metaphor for that which connects us. The artist has collected photographs and stories from around the world, displayed as garments hung across the gallery space. Also at Menier Gallery (from 21-25 November), Wendy Brooke-Smith exhibits paintings and drawings of landscapes and cityscapes.
20 November – 2 December 2017, Menier Gallery, 51 Southwark Street, London SE1 1RU.
