22 January–21 February

This group exhibition curated by students of the MA/MFA Curating courses at Goldsmiths, Chelsea College of Art, and Sir John Cass College of Art begins the Collection’s annual Testing Ground for Art and Education season, which supports the creative and professional development of emerging artists and curators. Use/User/Used/ explores the effects of 24/7 working culture and questions societal pressures to continuously perform. The show presents works from the Zabludowicz Collection alongside new live performance and dance commissions.

Testing Ground: Master Class
Master Class is a workshop for emerging artists developed in collaboration with artist Doug Fishbone. Now in its 4th year, Master Class offers a unique and free opportunity for eight emerging artists nominated to participate by artist-led spaces from around the UK. Over the course of a week, these artists will work closely with leading international artists to discuss and develop their individual studio practices through a series of tutorials, workshops, reading groups, studio and gallery visits and seminars. This year the guest tutors are Adam Chodzko, Andy Holden, Joseph Kosuth and Linder. Each will give a free public lecture about their work before a closed session of teaching with the participants
Master Class: Public lectures, 7pm
FREE, booking essential
3 February: Joseph Kosuth 4 February: Adam Chodzko 6 February: Andy Holden

Exhibiting artists include: Korakrit Arunanondchai (TH), Neil Beloufa (FR), David Blandy (UK), David Raymond Conroy (UK), Andrea Crespo (US), Simon Denny (NZ), Aleksandra Domanović (YU), Ed Fornieles (UK), Michael Fullerton (UK), Guan Xiao (CHN), Eloise Hawser (UK), Ann Hirsch (US), Pierre Huyghe (FR), Daniel Keller (US), Christopher Kulendran Thomas (UK), Seth Price (US), Frances Stark (US).

Annual Commission: Donna Huanca
29 September–18 December
We are proud to announce that this year’s Annual Commission will be undertaken by American artist Donna Huanca. This will be her first solo exhibition in the UK.
Huanca stages surreal architectural collages activated by live performers. She uses socially coded artefacts of the body such as cosmetics and found clothing to create paintings and sculptures, which become backdrops for these durational performances. Painted models, presented as canvases, move glacially through the installation; their morphing tableaux vivants leaving behind scars and ghostly remnants. For her exhibition in London, Huanca will be extending her investigations into representations of presence and absence with a sound installation that will amplify the spaces of 176 Prince of Wales Rd, responding to the movement of bodies through the building.
Donna Huanca (b. 1980 Chicago, USA) studied at the Städelschule, Frankfurt as well as the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Maine and has been the recipient of the DAAD Artist Grant and a Fulbright research grant. Recent exhibitions venues include the Malmö Konsthalle, Moma PS1 Printshop, New York and Peres Projects, Berlin.

Zabludowicz Collection Invites
The Invites program presents dynamic solo exhibitions by artists testing the parameters of their practice. It focuses on those without commercial gallery representation, providing a platform for risk-taking and experimentation.
Jemma Egan: 22 January–6 March
Gaia Fugazza: 24 March–1 May
James Ireland: 5 May–12 June
Victoria Adam: 16 June–17 July
Luke McCreadie: 29 September–6 November Willem Weismann: 10 November–18 December

Sarvisalo Residency and New Commissions
Artistic residencies will take place between June and August in Sarvisalo, Finland and this year we are proud to unveil two new site specific architectural commissions by Rachel Champion (USA) and Sam Falls (USA). Both have taken existing disused buildings on the island and revived them with installations that draw upon the inherent nature and history of their architecture. We are also inaugurating our first purpose built exhibition space on the island with Keith Tyson’s Large Field Array, a vast installation encompassing almost 300 separate sculptural forms into a single Field Array, conceived as an experiential lens for viewing some of the fundamental forces that make up reality. The work takes its title from Very Large Array (VLA), a field of radio telescopes in New Mexico. Like the VLA, Tyson’s work focuses our attention on single objects, events or references from multiple viewpoints to give us a fuller picture of the universe.
Dates for the Public Tour days, when visits to the Sarvisalo sites are possible will be announced in Spring 2016.

Zabludowicz Collection is a philanthropic organisation including a growing collection of contemporary art and a program of international exhibitions, events and artists’ residencies. Founded in 1994, the Collection is dedicated to fostering new audiences and a sustainable environment for contemporary art, offering a variety of opportunities and support for artists and art organisations. All of its activities are privately funded and free for the public to access.

The collection contains over 3000 works of art by more than 500 artists, spanning 40 years of art production. Its focus is on emerging art from the late 20th century to the present day and it is in constant development. The Collection has been directed since 2006 by Elizabeth Neilson.
In 2007 the Collection opened its main exhibition space in London, in a 19th Century former Methodist Chapel, where it has worked with artists, curators and the collection to produce exhibitions and events examining contemporary art practice in a public forum. The Collection now also runs an international program of exhibitions, events, residencies and commissions across four permanent venues in the UK, USA and Finland. The program is directed by Maitreyi Maheshwari.
