Turning Point Yorkshire and Humber launch a new Strategy, ‘A Voice for the Visual Arts’ 

‘The arts are an essential part of life, communicating ideas, feelings, and experiences. By working together we will help them to survive and thrive.’
This is the message from visual arts professionals across Yorkshire and Humber.

A new Strategy, ‘A Voice for the Visual Arts’, has just been launched by Turning Point Yorkshire and Humber (TPYH) who aim to develop a new and dynamic force for the visual arts in the region.

 The Strategy is guided by a set of three key aims:

-         The visual arts will thrive in this region through our collective vision, strength, collaboration and profile. The sector will benefit by working together to deliver shared ambition.

-         We aim to make the arts accessible to meaningful participation and enjoyment by a diverse range of people visiting and working in the region.

-         We want practitioners to stay and be attracted to a region which can offer a range of resources for the development of skills, creativity, production, exhibition and critical debate.

Lost Languages and other voices

Impressions Gallery
Joy Gregory

24th Nov - 19th Feb 2011
Lost Languages and other voices is the first major retrospective of work by Joy Gregory, one of the most significant artists to emerge from the Black British photography movement of the 1980s. Spanning twenty years the exhibition brings together fourteen bodies of work exploring race, history and gender, encompassing a wide range of photographic media from digital video installations to Victorian printing techniques. The title of the exhibition refers to the works Gomera (2008) and Kalahari (2009) in which Gregory draws attention to the cultural importance of marginalised African indigenous languages. Journeys feature recurrently in Gregory’s work, which has been made in diverse locations including South Africa, the Orkneys, Sri Lanka, and the Caribbean.
