Degas to Picasso: Creating Modernism in France at Ashmolean Museum

Ashmolean Museum
February 10 - May 7

In works by Matisse, Manet, Chagall, Renoir, Degas, Léger and Picasso, this ground-breaking exhibition tells one of the most compelling stories in the history of art – the rise of modernism. From 1800 to the mid-twentieth century, this story was played out in France, especially in Paris where international artists were drawn by salons and dealers, the creative exchange between poets and painters and the bohemian atmosphere of such places as Montmartre and Montparnasse. With over 100 works from a…

Bryce Speed: Space Song at North Wall Arts Centre

North Wall Arts Centre
April 20 - May 5

Bryce Speed creates psychological environments of seascapes and turbulent waters in pen and ink, offset by loosely painted geometric shapes and wonderings that interrupt the interiors and landscapes. For him, “line and color represent the forces of nature, like water, fire, and wind that invade and sometimes destroy our living spaces. Architectural forms metaphorically reference both the stability and instability of identity.” In this latest body of work, colour choices mostly centre on quiet neutrals, but here and there acidic…

Luke Wright: The Toll at North Wall Arts Centre

North Wall Arts Centre
April 27 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

After the Fringe First winning success of What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright is back to subject the English language to a series of degrading new tricks, all for your amusement. The poems in The Toll tour the flat-roofed pubs and half-bought couches of Brexit Britain. They struggle with doubt, duty and a score of half-cut nights spent shouting impotently at Question Time. Spend an evening with a raconteur at the top of his game, as he spits out verse…

O No! at The Old Fire Station

The Old Fire Station
April 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

A psychedelic ride, and a wonky homage to the woman damned for destroying the Beatles, O No! borrows Yoko Ono’s art instructions to ask whether falling in love is always catastrophic. A sell-out success and one of the most talked about shows of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015. It’s about reckless optimism, avant-garde art and what we might yet have to learn from the hippies. ???? “…like being sucked down a rabbit hole full of joy.” - Fest

How We Think We Think at The Old Fire Station

The Old Fire Station
April 29
