Islanders are being encouraged to get involved in an international touring piece of artwork which sees people filmed looking at a picture of someone they love as part of an immersive exhibition exploring human connections.
Every weekend, Express presents a selection of exhibitions, performances, workshops, events and other historic, creative and delicious content to help islanders get their weekly dose of culture.
Here's this week's offering...
ArtHouse Jersey is looking for islanders to take part in an emotive art installation, People We Love, as part of an immersive exhibition exploring human connections.
'People We Love' is a community-based, international touring artwork where individuals are filmed looking at images of people they love.
In this Jersey edition, ArtHouse Jersey is inviting islanders to take part in this beautiful and timely artwork that centres around the emotion that bonds us all: love.
Guided by an audio meditation, each participant will be filmed gazing at a picture of someone they love – a picture the audience will never see.
Filming takes place at St Helier Town Church during various time slots from Wednesday 13 September to Sunday 17 September 2023.
The footage will be used in People We Love as part of the Skipton Big Ideas: Human Connections exhibition which opens to the public on Friday 3 November 2023.
You can book your filming slot via Eventbrite.
The first concert of Jersey Arts Centre's '...in the Park' series kicks off with 'The Word in Park'.
This concert promises the raw energy of brass, wind and percussion from a powerful and exciting ensemble rooted in the New Orleans brass band tradition.
The Word on the Street are set to entertain with their hard-hitting funk, pop, rock and RnB.
Following The Word in Park, there are five other concerts taking place at Coronation Park this week featuring jazz, musicals, classical, Motown and disco.
Tickets for each concert can be purchased on the Jersey Arts Centre website.
The work created by children in a series of art-based workshops will be shown this weekend in a pop-up exhibition at Greve de Lecq Barracks on 12-13 August from 10:00-17:00.
The three-day workshops were attended by groups of children aged eight to 11, and focussed on the themed of 'you, me, and the sea'.
The project was designed to encourage students to build confidence, harness their imaginations and work as a team to create pieces of art that they can be proud of and share with their family and the wider community.
During the workshops last week, the children explored the forest and beach (despite the rain!) and then responded to nature in artwork including sculpting, painting, printmaking and sketching.
An exhibition by one of Jersey’s leading contemporary artists, Kay Le Seelleur Ara aka ‘Mrs Magnitude', continues this week.
'Mrs Magnitude’s Emporium' will feature hundreds of original works of art, paintings and drawings that Kay has made since a life changing moment in 2019, and promises to be a fun and wild journey into the brilliantly inventive, sharp humour and gender politics of Kay's extraordinary body of work.
Kay Le Seelleur Ara regularly posts her work on Instagram and has gained a diverse and growing audience of followers from around the world, ranging from fans in the Australian outback to world-class New York painters and critics.
'Mrs Magnitude’s Emporium' will run at ArtHouse Jersey at Capital House until 20 August 2023.
Upcoming exhibition 'No Place Like Home' is set to explore the concept of ‘home’ with an exhibition of newly commissioned works that will be shown in and outside of its gallery space.
No Place Like Home features the work of local and internationally acclaimed artists and invites islanders to consider their ‘home’ on a personal, national, global and even cosmic scale.
Launching at ArtHouse Jersey at Capital House with a special celebration event on Tuesday 5 September, the show will officially open from Wednesday 6 September and run until 15 October.
The exhibition features 23 gallery-based artworks and three external installation pieces, all of which explore ‘home’ from the micro to the macro, including considerations around Jersey’s housing crisis and international perspectives of the health of our planet. Whilst we live in a time when this can be a complex and serious subject, the pieces on display are often playful and interactive and invite the viewer to reflect on their own interpretation and experience.
The Harbour Gallery's summer exhibition 'Art by the Harbourside' is now open, featuring an array of work by over 70 local artists.
Located at The Harbour Gallery at 19 The Quay, Commercial Buildings, the exhibition is open every day from 09:30-17:30 until 10 September.
