Stewarts Law RCA Secret turns 21 this year and is celebrating coming of age with a bold new collaboration that sees us working with some of industry&rsquo\;s top curators\, bringin g in a whole new breadth of talent to the exhibition.

\n

Twenty-three curators from around the world have been invi ted to commission three artists to make postcards for the sale. With contri butors including industry leaders and the most exciting new names in contem porary curation\, the programme mirrors the exhibition's ethos of placing e stablished names next to the stars of the future.

\n

Among the curators involved are \;Laurence Sillars\, chief curator of the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art\; David Falkner\, Galler y Director at Stanley Picker Gallery\; Laura Sillars\, Artistic Director at Site Gallery\; Ingrid Swenson\, Director of PEER\; Alistair Hudson\, Direc tor of Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art\; Rosie Cooper\, \;Project Curator at Liverpool Biennial\; and Chris Clark critic and Senior Curator at Lewis Glucksman Gallery.

\n

The exhib ition is the most ambitious yet with postcards already received from some o f the world&rsquo\;s most renowned contemporary artists and designers inclu ding: Bob &\; Roberta Smith\, Maggi Hambling\, Zandra Rhodes\, Richard L ong\, Susan Hiller\, Christo\, David Bailey\, Yinka Shonibare\, Ryan Gander \, Paula Rego\, Nick Park\, Norman Ackroyd\, Paul Smith and Joseph Kosuth.< /p>\n

Stewarts Law RCA Secret gives you the chance to purchase art works that would be the envy of any collector for o nly £\;55.

\n

So what&rsquo\;s the& nbsp\;secret? \; All of the postcards are displayed anonymously so you have to guess which artist or designer has made the work before you hand ov er your cash. \; \;But don&rsquo\;t worry if you&rsquo\;re not an a rt expert\; chances are you&rsquo\;ll go home with something you&rsquo\;ll love\, whether it is by a famous name or a young art student (who could go on to be the next Tracey Emin!). All profits go towards helping emerging ar tists at a formative stage in their careers. \;

(In collaboration with Andreas Reihse\, sound)

\n
\n< div id="Overview" class="tab Overview">\n

A new performance by artist Redmond Entwistle inspired by the life of US sol dier Edward Pimental\, who was murdered by left-wing terrorists for his ID card in West Germany in 1985. The work comprises a sound composition by And reas Reihse made from field recordings of locations from Pimental&rsquo\;s life in the US and Germany\, combined with a series of visual scores by Ent wistle\, elaborating on the multiple narratives that circulate around the m urder.

\n

Taking a cue from biographical details of Pimental's growing intellectual and artistic curiosity in the a rmy\, in the film he begins to experiment with sound recording around his b ase in the weeks leading up to his murder. \;The General Line& nbsp\;allows for the realisation of the piece of music he is making\, but d raws on a wider set of recordings that extend to the places of his childhoo d and youth\; a technical high school in Queens\, a missile training site i n Alabama\, and the abandoned sites of old US army bases in the former West Germany.

\n

The General Line&n bsp\;is a companion piece to Redmond Entwisle&rsquo\;s artists feature film  \;Lockvogel (Decoys) \;and serves as both an addendum to\ , and a complication of the film.

This exhibition brings toget her four artists with diverse practices to explore one of the seemingly sim plest of concepts\, that of filling the void.
\n
 \;
\n
It is a basi c enough idea that it can be approached in a variety of ways. Seriously or playfully: from childishly colouring in letters\; filling the void of the b lank page or canvas\, to filling an emotional void with some obsessive acti vity\, or filling the space of the gallery itself.
\n
 \;
\n
The tit le and concept were partly inspired by the writer Georges Perec&rsquo\;s pl ayful inhabitation of the page\, and his novel \;A Void \; written entirely without the letter &lsquo\;e&rsquo\;.

THIS IS NOT A SYMPTOM is a thr ee part seminar series reflecting on the biochemical production of subjecti vity. The series seeks to build a critical framework that considers capital ism at a close range\, with its integration into the body. As the title sug gests\, the project questions symptomology \;
and its assimilation with the pharmaceutical industry's interest\, in what \;
the gend er theorist and philosopher Paul B. Preciado calls the 'pharmacopornographi c society'. He defines the pharmacopornographic era with the 1950&rsquo\;s development of synthetic hormone and anti-psychotic medicines\, that now in creasingly regulate the body on a molecular level.

Each week a d ifferent speaker contributes their research to the discussion: researcher E rika Biddle\, theorist Robert McRuer and researcher Chris Millard. On the b asis of the speakers&rsquo\; research\, the series seeks to explore the int ersection between the body and capitalism through prosthetic technology and the connection between an immaterial exertion of power and the immateriali sation of disabled identity. \;

The talk series was initiate d by the artist \;S idsel Meineche Hansen \;in connection to her ongoing \;work on the micro-politics of nervousness. \;The presentations will be contextu alised by reading material and \;film screenings.

Discover a sel ection of textiles from the Pacific made from barkcloth. Used to wrap\, dra pe and adorn the body in a myriad of styles and designs\, these garments de monstrate the long history of barkcloth\, and its ongoing relevance today.< /p>\n

In the islands of the Pacific\, cloth made from the inner bark of trees is a distinctive art tradition. Probably brought to the region at least 5\,000 years ago by some of the first human settlers\, its designs reflect the histories of each island group and the creativity of the makers. Spanning the region from New Guinea in the west t o Rapa Nui (Easter Island) in the east\, the exhibition will show a selecti on of 77 garments\, headdresses\, masks and body adornments from the Museum &rsquo\;s collection. Dating from the 1700s to 2014\, the pieces on display include those worn as everyday items and ceremonial costumes linked to key life cycle events such as initiation and marriage.

\n

Barkcloth is generally made and decorated by women\, but gar ments intended for ritual purposes may be made by men. This is particularly true in the masking traditions of Papua New Guinea. The Baining people who live on the large island of New Britain continue to make masks for day and night dances. In the exhibition\, an elaborately decorated Baining mask ma de in the 1970s demonstrates how barkcloth can be used in dramatic three-di mensional creations.

\n

Imported cloth a nd the changes brought by colonial activities across the region have had di fferent impacts on the art form. In some locations\, such as Tonga\, barkcl oth making never completely stopped. In others\, such as Hawaii\, the pract ice has actively been revived and Hawaiian kapa is now worn for hi gh profile hula performances. The exhibition considers these recent develop ments\, and shows a barkcloth dance skirt made in 2014 by Hawaiian practiti oner Dalani Tanahy alongside some fine examples of early Hawaiian cloth\, i ncluding a cloth with striking red and black designs thought to have been m ade in the late 1700s.

\n

New arenas for cultural expression continue to emerge through barkcloth creations\, as ur ban Pacific Island designers incorporate barkcloth elements and patterns in to garments intended for the catwalk. A stunning wedding dress made by New Zealand-based Samoan designer\, Paula Chan Cheuk illustrates this movement and reflects the continuing relevance of barkcloth as a flexible\, resilien t art tradition.

This exhibitio n will focus on the printed propaganda that either reviled or glorified Nap oleon Bonaparte\, on both sides of the English Channel. It explores how his formidable career coincided with the peak of political satire as an art fo rm.

\n

2015 marks the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo &ndash\; the final undoing of brilliant French ge neral and emperor Napoleon Bonaparte (1769&ndash\;1821). The exhibition wil l include works by British and French satirists who were inspired by politi cal and military tensions to exploit a new visual language combining carica ture and traditional satire with the vigorous narrative introduced by Hogar th earlier in the century.

\n

The print trade had already made the work of contemporary British artists familiar ac ross Europe. Continental collectors devoured the products of the London pub lishers\, and artists across Europe were inspired by British satires.

\n
\n

This exhibitio n includes work by James Gillray\, Thomas Rowlandson\, Richard Newton and G eorge Cruikshank\, some of the most thoughtful and inventive artists of the ir day.

\n

The range and depth of the Br itish Museum&rsquo\;s collection allows the satirical printmakers&rsquo\; a pproach to be compared with that of portraitists and others who tended to r epresent a more sober view of Napoleon.

\n

The exhibition begins with portraits of the handsome young general from the mid-1790s and ends with a cast of his death mask and other memorabilia acquired by British admirers. Along the way\, the prints will examine key m oments in the British response to Napoleon &ndash\; exultation at Nelson&rs quo\;s triumph in the Battle of the Nile in 1798\, celebration of the Peace of Amiens in 1802\, fear of invasion in 1803\, the death of Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805\, and Napoleon&rsquo\;s triumph at Austerlitz\, delight at his military defeats from 1812 onwards\, culminating in his exi le to Elba in 1814.

\n

1815 sees triumph alism after Waterloo and final exile to St Helena\, but some prints reflect an ambiguous view of the fallen emperor and doubts about the restoration o f the French king Louis XVIII.

This will be the first retrosp ective of the seminal American painter Agnes Martin since her death in \;2004.

\n

Martin was renowned for her subtle\, ev ocative canvases marked out in pencil grids and pale colour washes. Her app arently minima l approach belied a deep conviction in the emotive and expressive power of \;art.

\n

This major exhibition will cover the full breadth of Martin&rsquo\;s practice\, reasserting her p osition as a key figure in the traditionally male-dominated fields of 1950s and 1960s abs traction.

\n

The show will trace her career from early experiments to late work\, as well as demonstrate her pr ofound influence on subsequent generations of \;artists.

This exhibition focuses on the conflict\, martyrdom and catastrophe found in history painting from the ei ghteenth century to the present day. In England\, history painting first em erged in the eighteenth \;century.

\n

Artists such as John Singleton Copley (1738&ndash\;1815) and Benjamin Wes t (1738&ndash\;1820) presented recent British battles and deaths in the gra ndest possible manner and depicted scenes from ancient history to remind vi ewers of the timeless virtues to which they should aspire. This exhibition will show how these traditions of history painting have persisted in the wo rk of British modernists such as Winifred Knights and Stanley Spencer\, in Richard Hamilton and Rita Donagh&rsquo\;s work of the 1980s\, in the work o f Dexter Dalwood and in recent installations such as Jeremy Deller&rsquo\;s Battle of Orgreave 2001. It will celebrate the emotional power of history painting and show its persistent place in \;art.

A fantastic opportunity to hea r about the work of \;Ed Atkins \;in the artist&rs quo\;s own words. It&rsquo\;s a particular privilege to have Atkins speak a t the Contemporary Art Society at such a pivotal time in his artistic caree r and in the context of the recent acquisition of his 2013 film\, \;The Trick Brain\, purchased through the Contemporary Art Society Acqu isition Scheme for \;The Scottish Nat ional Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh.

\n

Atkins works primarily with writing\, sound and video. Rooted in literature\, cinema and music\, his work preys on thes e categories\, their genres and their legibilities: his works are often abo rtive\, interruptive and abject. Atkins&rsquo\;s work seeks to explore the corporeal and material world through so-called immaterial\, digital technol ogies.
