Material Environments is an exhibition about the transformative power of materials and the ways in which materials from clay to light inform our perceptions of the world. Bringing together a diverse range of artists and featuring new commissions alongside historic works, the exhibition will create a series of transformations across the Tetley’s gallery spaces. From light as bright as the sun and an audio telescope listening to the sounds of the cosmos to an immersive environment of imagined botanical porcelain and intimate hideaways, the exhibition is a challenge to the conventions of how a gallery is used, opening our eyes to the ways in which the materials round us dictate our expectations and how we see the world.
