Marinella Senatore: York Symphony
Through a series of workshops and conversations collecting individual stories in York, Italian artist Marinella Senatore has created a new Symphony which celebrates the city. Well-known in Europe and the US for her collaborative process of making new artworks through public participation, Senatore uses a range of media including video, collage and text to allow her projects to speak within a range of contexts.

This new Evelyn Commission is a contemporary response to the historic Evelyn Award, a scheme which ran from 1950 until 1962 with the aim of bringing York’s topographical collection up to date.

York Symphony is a commission produced in partnership with York Museums Trust, supported by a York family through the Friends of York Art Gallery.

Sara Radstone: More Than Words
The Centre of Ceramic Art (CoCA) presents a moving retrospective exhibition of work by British artist Sara Radstone (born 1955). Through her work with ceramics, Sara explores a range of ideas concerned with memory, history, landscape, humanity, loss and absence.

Designed by Martin Smith, the exhibition follows the quiet progression of Sara’s life in ceramics beginning with early works created as she sought to reinterpret the vessel form. Following her struggles and successes with the material, the exhibition tracks the evolution of Sara’s ideas as she moved from vessels to freestanding sculptures, wall-based multiples and installations.

Her journey has often been circuitous as she has revisited earlier ideas and sought to resolve or re-imagine earlier thoughts. Her work seeks to illustrate how thoughts, process and diverse sources give rise to ‘things’ and how they inhabit space. Sara has also created new work in response to the gallery space which is shown for the first time.
