Exhibitions Programme

2021

6 January – 30 January

Mark Tanner Sculpture Award Exhibition

Off Grid

Olivia Bax

Cross Lane Projects is proud to present a solo exhibition of new work by Mark Tanner Sculpture Award 2019/20 winner Olivia Bax.

The work of Olivia Bax is often characterised by familiar elements such as a hook, handle or vessel presented in unconventional, coloured forms. Bax generates her own paper pulp to cover and form a mantle over linear armatures, moulding each sculpture in this way creates the distinctive texture of the work. Rooted in drawing, the work carries instinctive gestures from start to finish to suggest an action or feeling: slipping and holding: funneling and filtering: draining and containing.

What A Fur Cup

The Political Cartoons and Comics of Martin Rowson

Lakes International Comic Arts Festival 2021

Festival Dates: 14 to 17 October

For nearly 40 years Martin Rowson has been the scourge of the political establishment, focusing his unflinching eye and scurrilous wit on those in power. His cartoons for the Guardian, Daily Mirror, Independent, New Statesman and many more, draw from an encyclopaedic knowledge of western culture and combine with a breath-taking talent for image making.

His comics, including The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman and The Communist Manifesto take apparently challenging texts and make them accessible and enlightening for a whole new generation of readers.

What a Fur Cup will feature some of Rowson’s most powerful political cartoons, caricatures and comics and present an entertaining journey through the past forty years of politics and celebrity.
