Alistair Wilson: Signs and Ciphers
Revealing links across various periods of production, Signs and Ciphers, an exhibition of works by Belfast-based artist Alistair Wilson, is broken into four parts and realised across two galleries. Encompassing selected works spanning forty years of production, the exhibition does not set out to provide a definitive survey of Wilson’s work to date, rather this extended exhibition draws together key works in an attempt to bring to the fore the prevailing themes and common characteristics present in Wilson’s practice. This rare opportunity to experience such a substantial body of Wilson’s work creates an opportunity to delve into the formal and conceptual concerns and the tension for his work to conform to having a fixed state.
The first instalment launches at the Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast on the 3rd August 2017 and focuses on Wilson’s more recent practice. The second instalment, at the Millennium Court Art Centre, Portadown, 6th October – 22nd November 2017, features examples of work dating back to the early 1970s.
