Tue 11 September 2018 - Sat 22 September 2018

Kettle's Yard House and Gallery

Artist Oreet Ashery’s sonic performance Passing Through Metal will be staged for the first time in the UK, involving participants from Cambridge creating sound through a mass knitting event in the Sackler Gallery, accompanied by live death metal band Anoxide at the opening event on Monday, 17 September.

Part of Ashery’s award winning video series Revisiting Genesis will also be screened within the exhibition. Revisiting Genesis will be screened in full during a special event on Wednesday, 19 September, when the artist will be in conversation with curators Guy Haywood (Kettle’s Yard) and Yves Blais (fig-futures).

fig-futures is a project supported by Arts Council England, Art Fund, and Outset and follows the major project fig-2 in which 50 projects were presented across 50 weeks at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London in 2015. fig-futures takes the one-week exhibition structure along with fig-2 alumni artists to four venues across the UK including Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool; Kettle’s Yard; The Gallery at De Montfort University, Leicester; and Plymouth Arts Centre.
