Encounter no. 1: Sogol Mabadi and Emma Helen Reid
As part of CCA’s Intermedia programme, Encounter no. 1 is a collaboration by artists Sogol Mabadi and Emma Helen Reid that focusses on how our online activities impact the experience of our own bodies and our encounters with others. Alongside the exhibition the artists have devised a performance for six participants that will take place at 111am on Friday 20 July and Saturday 21 July, and 6pm on Monday 23 July. This exhibition has been relocated to The Pipe Factory because of the current closure of CCA due to the Glasgow School of Art fire.
Until 29 July 2018, The Pipe Factory, Moncur Street entrance, Glasgow G40 2LA
Panel discussion: Painting – People and Places
A panel discussion between five painters – Lindsey Bull, Matthew Krishanu, Cara Nahaul, Narbi Price and Judith Tucker – that considers contemporary takes on the perennial questions of representation in painting and how painting an image is distinct from photography. The discussion takes place within the context of Matthew Krishanu’s solo exhibition, ‘The Sun Never Sets’.
Saturday 21 July 2018, 1.30pm, Huddersfield Art Gallery, Princess Alexandra Walk, Huddersfield HD1 2SU.

Tuesday 17 July 2018, 5pm, Hepworth Wakefield, Gallery Walk, Wakefield WF1 5AW.
A group exhibition of works in painting and collage by artists Susan Laughton, JFK Turner, Joanne Hummel Newell and Karine Leger. Each explores abstraction, balance and composition, whether from the starting point of Turner’s found objects, marks and stains or Laughton’s combination of fleeting memories and architectural draughtsmanship.
Until 1 August 2018, &Gallery, 17 Dundas Street, Edinburgh EH3 6QG.
An exhibition of works by four artists who recycle everyday residue or trash within their work. Hayley Harrison, Anne Parfitt, Madi Acharya-Baskerville and Nick Pearson use a range of found objects, from charity shop items to ‘the ‘stuff’ people leave on pavements. The resulting sculptures sit in that uneasy terrain between art and non-art.
Until 5 August 2018, Angus-Hughes Gallery, 26 Lower Clapton Road, London E5 0PD.
