Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) presents Wp Wp Wp, an exhibition by UK artist Fiona Banner from 20 September 2014, featuring ambitious new project, Chinook, and related work. The onomatopoeic title of the exhibition mimics the sound of helicopter blades in action, as commonly used in movie storyboards and comics.
Highlighting the absence of a helicopter’s body, Chinook is formed from two sets of helicopter blades – suspended from the ceiling of YSP’s Longside Gallery – rotating in opposition to one another at various speeds. Carefully choreographed to overlap, the blades give the sensation that they might collide, an effect that is both mesmerising and unnerving.
Generation: 25 Years of Contemporary Art in Scotland
Scottish National Gallery
28 June – 2 November 2014
This ground-breaking multi-venue exhibition, at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, the Scottish National Gallery and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, will feature landmark artworks from the last twenty-five years.
Featuring the work of 30 artists, the exhibition will include existing and new works, alongside the restaging of several significant exhibitions of the period. It celebrates the diversity, richness and power of the work that artists have made during the period, and which continues to be produced today.
The State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg
28 June – 31 October 2014
Manifesta 10 will be in the Hermitage Museum on the Neva River in central St. Petersburg, Russia. The Manifesta Biennial was inspired by the changing European constellation of 1989-91, and was initiated in order to take advantage and expand upon the increased artistic exchange made possible by these events. Now Manifesta will look back and take stock. St. Petersburg is suited for this reflection because of its former status as cultural capital of Russia and “gateway” to the West. The uniqueness of the Hermitage—a palace complex with extraordinary collections and inspired visitors—lends itself in a most unusual way to looking at varied moments in art history (local and global, recent and archaic). Manifesta 10 will explore gaps, propose ways to take advantage of them, and encourage personal aesthetic experience among the social buzz of the visitors.
Marlene Dumas’ project Great Men is a series of 16 portraits which will be exhibited in St. Petersburg, Russia, as part of Manifesta 10, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art.
Great Men is one of 55 artworks by living and dead European contemporary artists that will be exhibited in and around the State Hermitage as part of the 10th Manifesta.
