Black Sheep @ The National Centre for Craft and Design
14 February 2015 – 9 May 2015
This exhibition is an exploration of the edgier side of one of the most ancient constructed materials in the world. Felt. It looks at artists who create sometimes disturbing and bizarre oddities and technically brilliant objects. Visitors will discover felt teddy bear skulls and mutated organisms by Stephanie Metz, seamless showstopping garments by Horst Couture and sculptural natural forms by Marjolein Dallinga.

Not: The Art of Resistance @ The Manchester School of Art
19 January 2015 – 27 February 2015
The exhibition explores the work of contemporary artists who have attempted to enact alternative modes of resistance. Jenny Holzer, Andrea Fraser and Carey Young are just three of the artists involved in this collection. They demand (or sometimes politely request) that we rethink and reconfigure our relationship with the wider world.
