Kettle’s Yard reopens this weekend following the addition of a new education wing and expanded galleries designed by Jamie Fobert Architects. The reopening coincides with the launch of Actions, a new exhibition that celebrates the poetic and political power of modern and contemporary art. We’ve been working with Kettle’s Yard for the past four years on their identity, exhibitions and printed materials, and now also on the relaunch campaign and the Actions exhibition graphics and book; it’s lovely to see the space open its doors to visitors once again.
In the words of founder Jim Ede, “Kettle’s Yard is in no way meant to be an art gallery or museum, nor is it simply a collection of works of art reflecting my taste or the taste of a given period. It is, rather, a continuing way of life from these last fifty years, in which stray objects, stones, glass, pictures, sculpture, in light and in space, have been used to make manifest the underlying stability which more and more we need to recognise, if we are not to be swamped by all that is so rapidly opening up before us.”
