Albert Moore: Of Beauty and Aesthetics
York Art Gallery presents the first monographic exhibition of York born artist Albert Joseph Moore since the artist’s death in 1893.

Featuring more than 20 paintings and watercolours, it will highlight the beautiful and classical women for which the artist is most famous and demonstrate the modernity of Moore’s approach.

Albert Moore was one of the leading artists of the Aesthetic movement who prioritised mood, colour harmony and beauty of form over subject matter to create ‘art for art’s sake’. The exhibition will explore Albert Moore’s career and body of work using the latest research into his work by leading experts. It will include examples of Moore's youthful Pre-Raphaelite works as well as the hauntingly beautiful classical figures of his mature style.

Organised by York Museums Trust and Museum De Buitenplaats, in Eelde, Netherlands, the exhibition features the stunning and ambitious ‘Midsummer’, 1887, from the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery, Bournemouth alongside other key works from public and private collections across the UK.

The exhibition will run at the Museum De Buitenplaats from 10 December 2016 – 19 March 2017 before coming to York.

Aesthetica Art Prize Exhibition 2017
A platform for innovation and originality, the Aesthetica Art Prize Exhibition invites audiences to engage with captivating projects from some of today’s leading artists, both established and emerging. From individual narratives to global concerns, the artworks comment on contemporary culture and explore themes such as globalisation, perceptions of space and alienation in the digital age.

As the boundaries between the public and the private begin to merge into blurred depictions of reality, contemporary art is the mechanism that enables us to respond to a renewed understanding of living. The 2017 presentation features the work of 16 shortlisted artists who hail from diverse locations including Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Japan, the USA and the UK.

Utilising a range of media, they work within the categories of Photographic & Digital Art; Painting, Drawing & Mixed Media; Three Dimensional Design & Sculpture. and Video, Installation & Performance.

The accompanying publication Future Now: 100 Contemporary Artists, which features artists’ statements, images of the works and essays from leading art figures, is on sale at the exhibition.

The Dark Self - Susan Aldworth
Part of a three year interdisciplinary project, The Dark Self, will bring together the dreams of local people from diverse backgrounds with words and stories embroidered onto 1001 white pillowcases.

The pillowcases will be hung on wires in the patterns of neural pathways associated with sleep in the brain, with the public encountering the works by walking down these pathways.

Susan Aldworth has been working with York academics, including neuroscientist Professor Miles Whittington and art historian Professor Michael White, to explore the narratives of sleep.

The Dark Self project, funded by the Wellcome Trust, will culminate in a body of work including a sculpture exhibition and a film installation exploring the three stages of sleep.

Wednesdays to Sundays.

York Fine Arts proudly announces its second solo exhibition of original paintings by British landscape artist Clare Haley. ‘Clare Haley: Light of Yorkshire’ showcases a spellbinding collection of work that magnificently articulates the raw, dramatic beauty of landscape and light.

Picasso: Ceramics from the Attenborough Collection
Ceramic works of art by one of the world’s most famous artists, Pablo Picasso, go on public display at the Centre of Ceramic Art in York Art Gallery this summer. The new exhibition showcases highlights from the Attenborough collection.

Lord and Lady Attenborough began collecting ceramics by Picasso in 1954, after meeting him whilst on a family holiday in the South of France. At the time, Picasso was beginning to experiment with clay and produce his own ceramics at Georges and Suzanne Ramié’s Madoura Pottery in Vallauris. The Attenborough’s returned to Vallauris year after year, purchasing many more pieces and created the most significant private collections of Picasso ceramics in the UK.

The ceramics have been generously loaned to York Art Gallery by the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery, Leicester, by kind permission of the Estate of Lord and Lady Attenborough.

Pieces in the exhibition were chosen to reflect the range of Picasso’s own artistic interests and also reveal the taste of the collectors, Richard and Sheila Attenborough.
