The Other Side Of The Moon
An exhibition bringing together practitioners of Korean origin resident in the UK with artists living and working in Korea. With a curatorial position to view how ‘intercontinental presentation’ can reveal juxtapositions within our globalised time, the show also looks deeper into cross-cultural discourse by engaging visitors with what can be seen as ‘alien’. Artists include Mi Young Choi, Sodam Choi, Soon Yul-Kang and Eunmi Kim.
27-31 March 2019, Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, Bargehouse Street, London, SE1 9PH. www.a-n.co.uk/events/the-other-side-of-the-moon

A solo show of paintings by Polish artist Maciej Świeszewski, dean of the faculty of painting and graphics at The Gdańsk Academy of Fine Arts. In 2017 Świeszewski took part in an international symposium on painting, in Hangzhou, China, where he met Robert Priseman, currently visiting professor at the University of Suffolk in Ipswich. Invited to exhibit by Priseman, this is the first time Świeszewski has visited Suffolk. The exhibition doubles up as a chance for alliances to be made with students and staff at the university, as the artist shares how his work draws on experiences as a child of post-war Europe.
Until 5 April 2019, The Waterfront Gallery, Waterfront Building, 19 Neptune Quay, Ipswich IP4 1QJ. www.a-n.co.uk/events/maciej-swieszewski-solo-exhibition
