Royal West of England Academy | Bristol

Kate MccGwire

Exhibition from 16 march to 2 june 2019

This dynamic and varied exhibition showcases of some of the most exciting sculptors from across the country and beyond. Almost all of the work is for sale, making the Sculpture Open a perfect opportunity to discover new artists or invest in well-known names. This year we are pleased to announce that our Invited Artist will be Brazilian sculptor, painter and printmaker Ana Maria Pacheco.

The RWA Sculpture Open will celebrate contemporary sculptural practice in all its many forms. From bronze casting to 3D printing, stone carving to found objects, sculpture is arguably the most diverse of artistic mediums allowing unrivaled freedom in materials, process, form and scale. Crossing boundaries between architecture, design, manufacturing and craft sculpture is a constantly evolving art form that pervades our lives like no other – from public monuments to the coins we carry in our pockets, sculpture is all around us.

This year’s selection panel comprises of internationally-known sculptors Ann Christopher RA, Daphne Wright and Kate MccGwire, Artistic Director of New Art Centre at Roche Court Stephen Feeke and RWA Academicians Ian Middleton, Simon Hitchens and Dallas Collins.

The RWA Open Sculpture Exhibition is a biennial exhibition, taking place as a change from our usual Open Drawing Exhibition, Drawn. More information

SMITH

Exposition du 16 février au 26 mai 2019

L’artiste français·e SMITH ( 1985) développe un travail où la métamorphose de soi prend une place centrale. Ses images poétiques invitent à la contemplation et évoquent le souvenir de corps absents. Similaires à des images de laboratoire, ses Spectrographies font référence aux nouvelles technologies qui nous permettent, par l’intermédiaire d’un écran, de regarder, d’échanger, de toucher des êtres pourtant physiquement absents.

Kate MccGwire / Dream

Kate MccGwire / Dream

Chiostro del Bramante | Rome, Italy

Kate MccGwire

Exhibition from 28 september 2018 to 25 august 2019

Dream is an allegorical journey towards the most secret part of the human soul; the theme of dreams is developed through the idea of a journey, and, according to Sigmund Freud, constitutes the channel or “the royal road” for entering into contact with the unconscious and the spiritual dimension.

The exhibition, curated by Danilo Eccher, considers the dream as an element of reflection, of discovery, as a private expression, as a gateway into the deepest space of the soul.

Site-specific works alternate with works redesigned for the spaces of the Chiostro del Bramante, in a sequence that turns into one big story, thanks partly to the direct involvement of the artists. The exhibition itinerary is imagined as an experience that leads the public from the darkest zones to the meditative dimension and on to the heavenly spaces of the soul.

“Dream is the representation of the idea of the dream, another dimension that transcends the physical nature of perception to enter the territory of emotion, of enchantment, of poetry.“ Danilo Eccher

It is a journey that is physical, surreal, mental and dreamlike, leading the spectators through a series of stages and passages, stops and re-starts: from immersion in nature to a confrontation with shapes, from the evocation of personal and collective memories to contact with matter, from shadows, sounds, and darkness towards total immersion in light.

Dream completes the trilogy conceived and curated by Danilo Eccher for Chiostro del Bramante, which began with Love (2016), followed by Enjoy (2017). Three great exhibitions dedicated to the most intimate human emotions represented through the many poetics of contemporary art; three panoramas that are capable of exploring the feelings of the soul: from the ambiguity of desire to the most exhilarating joys and on into the unconscious.
