The Sky’s Gone Out
Considering our changing approach to natural light due to the ease of access to electric lighting and screen-based technology, this exhibition brings together the works of seven painters who each use light in different ways, drawing reference from Baroque and Romantic painters as well as our shifting diurnal patterns.
7-28 April 2018, Arthouse1, 45 Grange Road, London SE1.

A solo show of works by artist Ana Mendes that was originally conceived of as a group show about the nature (or need for) an artists statement. For Mendes, the works are the statement and this exhibition brings together a number of works that respond to the current political climate, including Map Series, a performance-installation that uses a sewing machine to sew new and distorted boundaries on maps.
6-25 April 2018, Platform Arts, 1 Queen Street, Belfast

Lucie Wilson, Sandra Bouguerch and Sume Leyden curate this exhibition featuring 23 artists who each consider our relationship to technology and its impacts in a range of media, including interactive mirrors and virtual reality installations.

31 March – 20 May 2018, neo:gallery23, The Market Place, Bolton BL1 2AL.
