Linderism

A new solo exhibition of work by Linder.

Most well known for her photomontage, this exhibition explores the diverse range of Linder’s practice. It explores Linder as performance artist, zine-maker, musician, documentary-photographer, collaborator, muse, guru, medium and body-builder.

Museum Remix

Museum Remix is a series of installations in the Museum of Classical Archaeology about labels and why they matter. The labels we give to people, and the categories we try to put them in. The labels we proudly choose ourselves, and the labels we give to objects. The histories they include, and what they hide.
 

Walking on Thin Ice: Co-operation in the face of a changing climate

In August 2019 we invited a group of Year 12 students from across the UK to curate a unique exhibition about climate change. We wanted to give a platform to young people, who are increasingly leading the conversation on climate issues, but whose voices aren't always represented by museums. We are now pleased to present their fantastic exhibition.

'Walking on Thin Ice' takes a look at contemporary research, as well as what is being done outside the scientific sphere, to address our changing climate. 

Tour: Jim Ede and India, reverberations in the Kettle's Yard House and Collection

Join Curatorial Assistant Alina Khakoo for a spotlight tour of South Asian stories in the Kettle’s Yard House. If Ede described the House as his ‘portrait’, then this is a chance to explore how his travels in British India and enduring connections with the South Asian subcontinent come to life in the art and non-art objects in the House. From textiles to a Tibetan yak bell, find out how the Kettle’s Yard collection manifests Ede’s sustained yet complex engagement with South Asia.

Open House

Open House Artists in Residence, Wright & Vandame, are exploring ideas of mental health, well-being, and space with our local community in North Cambridge. Inspired by the House and Jim Ede’s own experiences, the Research Space will be an evolving display, documenting and reflecting Wright & Vandame’s progression through their residency.

The artists have curated a selection of works of art from the Kettle’s Yard Reserve Collection exploring abstraction, nature, and wellbeing.

Talk: Jim Ede and India

Join Kettle’s Yard Curatorial Assistant Alina Khakoo for a talk about Jim Ede’s travels in India between 1917–19, and to quote the collector himself, the ‘reverberations’ of this journey that sounded throughout his life. Taking a closer look at material from the Jim Ede and India display, and presenting further findings from other national collections and archives, this discussion explores the nuances of the collector’s lifelong engagement with South Asian politics, culture and religion.
