Anthea Hamilton installs her work, and works by other artists, in the House following Kettle’s Yard’s collaboration with the artist at The Hepworth Wakefield in 2016/17. This exhibition was created by Hamilton in response to works and archive materials in our collection. The new installation in the House includes a series of works from The Hepworth Wakefield exhibition as well as some new works.

Inspired by Jim Ede’s friendships, and the relationships that formed the Kettle’s Yard collection, Hamilton has invited other artists to contribute to the new display. Most of these, including Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann, Nicholas Byrne and Roger Phillips were also involved in the Hepworth Wakefield exhibition. Maria Zahle is a new addition to the collaboration.

Hamilton describes the work she made for the Anthea Hamilton Reimagines Kettle’s Yard exhibition as a “form of extraction … the distilling of certain moments”. Read more about her work, and her relationship to Kettle’s Yard in the Anthea Hamilton Reimagines Kettle’s Yard book available from our shop in-store and online.
