Ruskin, Turner & The Storm Cloud
📅 29 March - 23 June 2019
York Art Gallery
Ruskin, Turner & the Storm Cloud: Watercolours and Drawings is a major new exhibition to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of artist and art critic John Ruskin.
It will consider Ruskin’s relationship with Turner, as well as his concerns about the environment and well-being, which were prominent themes in his work and writings.
New research, new commissions and an exhibition book will also explore these themes through multiple lenses, as we bring together the new research of artists, climate change scientists, art historians and curators.
This partnership exhibition between York Art Gallery and Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Kendal, Cumbria, will show their Turner and Ruskin collections together for the first time, complemented by substantial loans from national and regional collections.
After York Art Gallery, the exhibition will also be on display at Abbot Hall Art Gallery from July 11 to October 5 2019

Museum Of Broken Relationships
📅 29 March - 23 June 2019
York Art Gallery
Just as Britain is set to break up with the European Union, York Castle Museum brings a collection of stories and symbolic possessions to the city which relate to the ways we fall out of love.
Always heartfelt, sometimes humorous and often deeply moving, the collections from the Museum of Broken Relationships in Zagreb, Croatia, will be enriched with objects from York’s collections which illustrate a key moment in a relationship breaking down.
It will consider this from a national level, such as the divisions caused by war, religion and politics, but also include those individual stories which say something much more personal about how we all cope when love falls apart.
The exhibition will also feature new stories brought together especially for the exhibition through an appeal to local communities.
Children Curate
📅 12 April - 31 August 2019
York Art Gallery
Anthony Shaw's impressive collection of art, assembled over the last 45 years, is on long-term loan to York Art Gallery. Anthony believes his collection looks best displayed in domestic spaces, allowing for dialogue between artists. Visitors to his intimate domestic display space are invited to imagine what it is like to live alongside a collection of art.

In this remarkable new display, Anthony invited 28 Year Six children from Burton Green Primary School in York to become Guest Curators and create their own exhibition using his collection. The children also made their own artwork in response as part of a series of workshops led by artist Susan Halls. This imaginative and surprising new work sits alongside the items that inspired their creation.
