Transformation, by Helena Eflerová
A survey-based show featuring a retrospective collection of artworks by multidisciplinary artist Helena Eflerová integrated with work by disabled artists. The artworks draw attention to the resemblances between Eflerová’s and the disabled artists’ practices.
The exhibition will give an insight into both practices; blurring the distinctions between the work Eflerová produces in her independent practice and research surrounding experiences of conception, pregnancy, birth and early postnatal life with work created in workshops which she facilitates for adults with learning disabilities at The Lantern Community.
Advocating inclusion and participation in quality contemporary art, this exhibition will invite debate challenging attitudes to arts and disability.

28 September - 30 October 2016: The Archaeology of Negative Capability
exhibition presented work that draws from across the boundaries of
visual art, music, poetry, philosophy, archaeology and academic
research. Speaking to Keats' almost 200-year old concept of 'negative
capability' and the work of the AHRC-funded Against Value project, the
visual work of Sophie Cunningham Dawe (image), the poetry of Mark Rutter, the
music of Oli Barrett and theoretical writings of Dr Emile Bojesen, Senior
Lecturer in Education at the University, explored that which
exceeds common conceptions of value.
