Spencer Finch: The Skies can't keep their secret exhibits at Turner Contemporary 24 May - 21 September 2014. Finch responds to light and colour, with new works including a large-scale suspended sculpture that subtly alters as the natural light changes throughout the day.

Siobhan Davies Dance returned to Turner Contemporary to present a live movement installation Manual, choreographed by Siobhan Davies in collaboration with dance artist Helka Kaski.
Manual demonstrates how we are experts in the movements which make up our daily lives. Kaski invites visitors to Turner Contemporary’s current exhibitions, ‘Making Painting: Helen Frankenthaler and JMW Turner’ and ‘Edmund de Waal: Atmosphere’, to complete a familiar action by providing a set of verbal instructions. Through this conversation it becomes clear that movement which at first may appear easy is actually complex and extraordinary and often results in unexpected dialogue. Manual draws attention to simple actions, meticulously dismantling their timing and order.
