Actions: The image of the world can be different

Actions Kettles Yard Cambridge

A group show featuring new and existing work by 38 artists. The exhibition follows a two-year redevelopment of the Cambridge gallery by Jamie Fobert Architects, including new gallery and education spaces which complement the uniqueness of the Kettle’s Yard House and collection. The exhibition will include site-specific works across Cambridge.

The exhibition is inspired by a letter Naum Gabo wrote to Herbert Read in 1944, in which Gabo reasserts the potential of art as a poetic, social and political force in the world and his belief that “the image of the world can be different”.

Actions brings together work across a variety of forms and media made by artists of different generations, from the emerging to the renowned. The exhibition features work by 38 artists including nine new commissions by Rana Begum, Jeremy Deller, eL Seed, Idris Khan, Issam Kourbaj, Harold Offeh, Melanie Manchot, Cornelia Parker and Caroline Walker.
