This exhibition running from 1st-31st of October at the Quay Gallery will reveal the final art pieces to result from this project. The art work is displayed alongside materials and documents revealing the relationships, work, play and collaboration that led to the creation of these pieces.
Throughout the process, each artist has been given cause to deeply reflect on their own individual interests and practice including (and not exclusively) schools, life histories, popular culture, celebration, action figures, food, architecture, film, found objects, acting, writing, period fashion and local history. All these themes are demonstrated throughout the exhibition, as well as recurring themes of communication, memory and identity. The work is multi-media and multi-layered in nature to reflect the variety of unique perspectives and approaches, which blurs the boundaries between art practice and everyday life.
A Venture Arts project supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
Project Partners: Castlefield Gallery, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Contemporary Visual Arts Network.
