What is the Matter? Materials, Commodities, Narratives

Sculptural works by women artists from the Material Voice collective amongst the displays at Kelham Island Museum.

12 – 29 September 2019

How do the resonances of Sheffield's material history manifest themselves in the globalised and digital world of the 21st century? How might the voices of women contemporary artists working in Sheffield be understood through explorations and interpretations of the power of materials to convey aspects of the city’s past, present and future?

Material Voice have responded to artefacts and stories from the Museum’s displays and collections by making sculptural works that give new perspectives and interpretations.

Material Voice is a collective of seven Sheffield based women artists: Heliya Badakhshan, Gillian Brent, Mandy Gamsu, Seiko Kinoshita, Kate Langrish-Smith, Clee Claire Lee and Sarah Villeneau.

Opening event 12 September, 5pm-7.30pm - see https://www.facebook.com/events/466972867368965/
