Contemporary Encounters18 January to 21 April 2014
In the last 30 years, artists have found myriad ways to comment on the state of the world around them, highlighting their place within it or simply attesting to the fullness of everyday existence. This exhibition will include works made from the late 1980s to the present, offering a diverse cross section of contemporary practices, from conceptual art to new media technology.
Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen17 May to 29 September, 2014
This exhibition is a far from humble exhibition about the domestic kitchen. Counter Space explores the 20th century transformation, reorganisation and rationalisation of domestic space and labour. Including items ranging from elements of our everyday world we don’t even think of as ‘designed’, to chairs and tables by the world’s leading designers this exhibition is a collection of iconic functional design from the twentieth century. Hidden from view for centuries in basements and annexes the kitchen became a bridgehead of modern thinking – a testing ground for new materials, new technologies, new power sources and new designs. As entertaining as it is thought-provoking, after visiting this exhibition you will never look at your kitchen in the same way again.

Depicting the iconic New York that captivates the world’s imagination and the idiosyncratic details that define New Yorkers’ sense of home, this exhibition from MoMA’s extraordinary photography collection celebrates the city in all its vitality, ambition and beauty. Made by approximately 90 artists responding to the city as well as professionals on assignment, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Lewis Hine, Helen Levitt, Cindy Sherman, Alfred Stieglitz, and Weegee, over 150 works reveal the deeply symbiotic relationship between photography and the ‘city that never sleeps’ – New York. Both an exploration of the life of the city and a documentation of photography’s evolution throughout the twentieth century, Picturing New York celebrates the great and continuing tradition of capturing the grit and glamour of one of the world’s greatest urban centres.
