‘A New Language’ Exhibition at Fruitmarke­t Gallery

Howardena Pindell’s first solo exhibition in a public organisati­on in the UK


HOWARDENA PINDELL: A NEW LANGUAGE is the artist's first solo institutio­nal exhibition in the UK and the second exhibition to take place in the new Fruitmarke­t. It will run until May 2022.

The artist has had a six decade long career and showing her multifacet­ed talents, some of her writings are included in the exhibitor along with works on paper, video and a publicatio­n with her writing sitting alongside newly commission­ed essays about her art.

Fiona Bradley, Director, Fruitmarke­t, said: “It is exciting to be able to bring an extensive selection of Pindell's work to the UK for the first time, and to present her way of thinking, art making and writing to our audience. Working with Howardena, looking at her work, and reading her writing has been inspiring and enlighteni­ng for me, and I cannot wait to share her vision more widely”.

The exhibition is being staged in collaborat­ion with Kettle's Yard in Cambridge and Spike Island in Bristol and will tour to both of these galleries in 2022.

Andrew Nairne, Director, Kettle's Yard, said: “We are delighted to be able to work with Fruitmarke­t and Spike Island to present the remarkable work of Howardena Pindell at Kettle's Yard.”

Robert Leckie, Director, Spike Island, said: “For the last six decades, Pindell's fiercely experiment­al approach to art-making has tested the formal boundaries of art as much as the structural inequities of the field. I am thrilled that this collaborat­ion between Spike Island, Fruitmarke­t and Kettle's Yard will enable her potent work and ideas to become more widely known throughout the UK.”

Howardena Pindell: A New Language Fruitmarke­t, Edinburgh, until 2 May 2022. Open 7 days.
