Masters of Japanese Photography

Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts  

This exhibition explores the work of some of the most prominent Japanese photographers of the second half of the twentieth century, including Nobuyoshi Araki and Eikoh Hosoe. Witnesses to a generation that grew up in the aftermath of the Second World War, their work addresses both their personal experiences and the evolution of Japanese society. From Araki’s exuberant flowers to Hosoe’s lyrical portraits, these fascinating images encapsulate the natural beauty and social complexity of Japan. The exhibition will feature around 60 works drawn from artists’ studios as well as from private collections. It will be the first exhibition on contemporary Japanese photography at the Sainsbury Centre, offering the unique opportunity to engage with a remarkable generation of photographers who transformed the genre.

Fiji: Art and life in the Pacific

Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts

Revealing stunning sculptures, textiles, ceramics, and ivory and shell regalia, Fiji: Art & Life in the Pacific is spectacular. 

The largest and most comprehensive exhibition about Fiji ever assembled, it will take the visitor on a journey through the art and cultural history of Fiji since the late 18th century. 

Over 270 works of art, including European paintings and historic photographs, are being loaned by exhibition partner the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology at Cambridge, and by the Fiji Museum, the British Museum, the Pitt Rivers Museum (Oxford) and museums in Aberdeen, Birmingham, Exeter, London, Maidstone, as well as Dresden and Leipzig in Germany.

This exhibition results from a three-year Arts & Humanities Research Council-funded project which examined the extensive but little-known Fijian collections in the UK and overseas, and uncovered some significant treasures. 

Paintings, drawings and photographs of the 19th and 20th century provide context for the artworks. These include exquisite watercolours by the intrepid Victorian travel writer and artist Constance Gordon Cumming, and by naval artist James Glen Wilson, who was in Fiji in the 1850s.

Picture: Barkcloth (Masi) wedding attire, Fiji, 2012. Sainsbury Research Unit, University of East Anglia.

Paul Nash

Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts

Paul Nash (1889 –1946) is among the most important British artists of the first half of the 20th century and a key figure of Modern Art in Britain. Renowned as an official war artist in both the First and Second World Wars, Nash was fascinated with Britain’s landscapes and ancient history. Inspired by these influences, he interpreted his environment in a very unique and personal way that evolved throughout his career.

Spanning a lifetime’s work from his earliest drawings to his iconic war time paintings, the exhibition will explore Nash’s central role in the development of modern British art. His progressive style provided a basis for his involvement with international modern art movements such as Surrealism. He was a founding member of the British modernist group Unit One which included painters, sculptors and architects such as John Armstrong, Barbara Hepworth, Tristram Hillier, Ben Nicholson, Henry Moore and Edward Wadsworth. The exhibition will show works by Nash alongside his fellow Unit One members, revealing the debates about abstraction and surrealism in which Nash participated during this time. It will explore his contributions to major exhibitions of the 1930s, including the International Surrealist Exhibition of 1936 and the Unit One exhibition which toured across the UK in 1934-5.

The display will consist of paintings by Nash from the Great War, such as the remarkable They Ypres Salient at Night, 1918, early abstractions such as Kinetic Feature, 1931, Surrealism and ancient landscapes such as Druid Landscape, circa 1938, Landscape of the Megaliths, 1934 and Equivalents for the Megaliths, 1935, amongst others. His illustrations for an edition of Urne Burial, the treatise by Norwich polymath Thomas Browne which was re-published in 1931, will also be included.

The exhibition is organised by Tate Britain and will be traveling to Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle upon Tyne after its run at the Sainsbury Centre.

£12/£10.50. Free for members, UEA student members and patrons.

For more information, please visit the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts website or call 01603 593199.

Gains and losses: a look at Argentina's economic and social changes after a year of right-wing government

Nick Caistor

ARTS 2.01, UEA

In Argentina under the Kirchners the economy grew at unprecedented rates, international debt was reduced, the government invested in infrastructure and education, inequality and poverty were reduced and the country became part of a progressive alliance of South American nations determined to forge their own future, showing there was space for policy decisions that were not dictated by neo-liberalism. And yet in 2015 half of the electorate voted for ‘Change’, and brought in the first right-wing government to reach the presidential palace without a coup - what change did people want? And what have they made of the changes brought in by nine months of Macri’s government?

Come along to discuss what was gained and what was lost under the Kirchners and what their legacy is in the current return to debt, market economics and a state of emergency.

Free to attend. For more information, please contact Dr Hazel Marsh or call 01603 592151.

Victoria's dustbin

What the Victorians threw away - and didn't want you to find!

Dr Tom Licence

Going through people's rubbish is a rather messy business, but if you really want to get to know someone, it's not a bad idea. Dr Tom Licence has learned all about the Victorians by digging up their rubbish. He has found out which toys their children played with, what animals they kept, the illnesses they suffered and even how they celebrated Christmas. In this lecture you will get right up close to the ordinary lives of our great great grandparents. The Victorians will never seem the same again.

Magical magma

What makes a volcano go boom?

Prof Jenni Barclay & Dr Richard Herd

Volcanoes can erupt as gigantic explosions or gentle-moving lava flows. So what is it that finally makes a volcano go boom? Join us as we travel deep below the earth's surface to discover different types of magma and learn about how they control volcanic eruptions. Along the way, we'll think about how scientists monitor what's going on from the earth's surface, with examples from volcanoes all around the world. With hands-on experiments, giant flubber flows and an explosive open air finale, it will be an event that goes off with a bang!

All welcome. Recommended for ages 7+ (all children must be accompanied by an adult).

For more information get in touch via email or call 01603 592130.
