The American artist brings his most ambitious solo show yet to Tramway, in a first for not just the UK but Europe.  A feat of engineering featuring thousands of objects which will hang in the main gallery, this installation promises to be an eye-popping must-see, with some serious intent behind the spectacle.

Printshop! 
20 July - 11 August

In perfect time for the summer holidays, the part-exhibition, part-open studio is a celebration of all things printmaking, encouraging visitors of all ages to roll up their sleeves and actually contribute to the show as it evolves. Featuring a collaborative work from long-term contributor Edwin Pickstone and award-winning artist Claire Barclay, workshops throughout the exhibition run will allow participants to make their own prints to hang alongside the professionals'. 

The exhibition launches with Printshop goes Large! an afternoon of participatory activity on 20 July>

 

Jonathan Baldock: Facecrime

In this exhibition, British artist Jonathan Baldock has been inspired by the discovery, in 1974, of more than a thousand ancient perfectly preserved clay tablets, inscribed with the world's oldest writing system. He presents an alternative history of clay as a tool of communication and a carrier of language. MORE>
