About Artcore

Artcore is an international centre for contemporary art and creativity that is based in Derby, UK, and is home to Artcore Gallery, studios and work spaces as well as a shop and cafe. A vibrant hub for commissioning, production, presentation and debate, we offer opportunities for diverse audiences to engage directly with creative practices through participation and discussion. Here at Artcore Gallery we believe that contemporary art and creativity are central to the development of people and places. We have an extensive exhibition and residency programme which helps support early, mid-career and established artists to create work which deals with pressing social, political and environmental issues. Each year we welcome over 4000 people from all sections of the diverse communities of Derby to experience inspiring, innovative and high-quality exhibitions and events. Over 25 years we have developed links all over the world. This cement a global creative community and helps us support the aspiring artist into this contemporary world.

 

THIS YEAR

Artcore Gallery is newly located in Artcore’s second building in Derby’s City Centre, which opened to the public in August 2019. This is a base of operations for our contemporary art activities. The gallery is a versatile space, and our busy exhibition programme of ten shows each year supports the development of emerging artists from Derby and the East Midlands, as well as featuring the work of more established UK and International artists. Over this year, our programme is focused on working in the urban public space domain with three group shows and a symposium regarding the same theme. We will also host two solo residencies of established artists working with sculpture as well as three residencies and exhibitions of work by emerging artists in the region. In March 2020, in response to COVID-19, we actively moved a lot of our operations online which included curation of In Isolation Together, a 6 week international online visual arts festival. With over 50 artists from around the world responding to different aspects of being in isolation or lockdown, it showcased Artcore Gallery’s dynamic adaptability in being not just a physical gallery space but also an equally robust virtual entity.

'The Sharing Of Uncertainty' explores John Newling's ever-expanding relationship with nature and the human species. John Newling was born in Birmingham in 1952 and has an acclaimed international reputation creating projects and installing works in the UK and many other countries. Nottingham-based, John Newling is a pioneer of public art with a social purpose. His works explore the natural world and the social and economic systems of society – such as money or religion. To this end, Newling has innovated the possibilities and benefits for art in a renewed social and conceptual framework.

The exhibition runs from the 25th of September till the 30th of October, Monday to Friday between 12 to 4pm at our Albert Street Gallery. If you would like to attend the opening night next Friday book your tickets now via Eventbrite using the link below!
