Viking: Rediscover the Legend
Two of the most significant and internationally recognised collections of Viking Age treasure in Britain will be brought together for the first time in a major new exhibition at the Yorkshire Museum in 2017.
Featuring some of the most exciting Anglo-Saxon and Viking discoveries ever made, the exhibition will explore how the Vikings transformed life in Britain.
Star objects from the British Museum will feature alongside the Yorkshire Museum’s world class collections and will be interpreted in new ways to give a fresh perspective on how Vikings shaped every aspect of life in Britain.
It will also feature ground-breaking research by archaeologists and new discoveries by metal-detectorists which will challenge our perceptions of what it means to be Viking.
The exhibition will open at the Yorkshire Museum and then tour to the University of Nottingham Museum, The Atkinson, Southport, Aberdeen Art Gallery and Norwich Castle Museum, dates to be announced shortly.

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.

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.
