Cley 18: ‘The greater the distance the clearer the view’
This year’s contemporary art festival is curated by Dr Caroline Fisher and features new works by 60 artists who are from or have a connection to Norfolk. Located in the local church, on the beach and at the Norfolk Wildlife Centre, the artists have each taken their lead from the exhibition title, a quote from W.G. Sebald’s The Rings of Saturn. Fisher has invited artists to respond with ‘ideas for work concerned with journeys, maps, starting and finishing points, diversions and dead-ends, viewpoints and perspectives’.
5 July – 5 August 2018, St Margaret’s Church, Holt Road, Cley-next-the-Sea, Norfolk NR25 7TT.

Remind me to remember . . .
Twenty-two artists, including Cathy MacLennan, Janet Curley Cannon, Salma Ahmad Caller and Jill Iliffe, consider the personal and universal experience of ageing through painting, print, sculpture, video and sound. How ageing is viewed by society, memory loss, personal experiences and influential elderly relatives are all topics approached through the diverse perspectives of the artists.
12-15 July 2018, Brock Keep, Open Hand Open Space, 571 Oxford Road, Reading RG30 1HL.
