Everything Flows

7th June - 3rd September 2017, Millennium Gallery, Sheffield

Everything Flows brings together work by emerging and established Sheffield-based artists working with painting, sculpture, video, photography and sound. The works are each united, in different ways, by a sense of ‘flow’, from choreographed movement and kinetic motion, through to the fluctuations of narrative, and the movement of international finance and migration.

Curated by Jeanine Griffin, the exhibition includes work by Paul Barlow, Rose Butler, Joseph Cutts, Natalie Finnemore, Ruth Levene, Victoria Lucas, Peter Martin, and Ryan Mosley, along with screening programmes/ events curated by Annexinema and Joseph Cutts & Ashley Holmes.

Everything Flows forms part of Making Ways a new programme supported by Sheffield Culture Consortium through Arts Council England to showcase, celebrate and develop the exceptional contemporary visual art produced in the city.

Test Sites: Arts Catalyst

Research; Calder/Hebble Navigation, Summer 2017

Test Sites is Arts Catalyst’s series of inquiries into matters of concern connected with environmental change – such as flooding, pollution, and species loss – and their impact on local culture, and ecology. At each site, we are inviting local people and groups to be part of art-led co-inquiries, working with artists, scientists, and other experts.

In collaboration with Canal & River Trust, Ruth and Arts Catalyst will make two initial research journeys by narrowboat along the Calder/Hebble navigation, meeting local people, river/canal users and experts with interests in water (ecologists, fishermen, canoeists, etc), the history of the river and canal, water stewardship.

Radio 4 - On Your Farm

Online Podcast

Radio 4's Farming Today, On Your Farm series produced a show about A Field of Wheat.

"Agriculture in Britain is a pretty lonely business these days. Many farming businesses are run by one man or woman who hires in contractors for the big jobs. In Lincolnshire Peter Lundgren has solved that problem by finding forty-two people to share a year in the life of a twenty acre field of wheat.

In an experiment in social art The Field of Wheat collective invited interested individuals from around the world to pay their share of the cost of seeding the field and then allowed them to share in making some of the decisions about the field and its crop".
