In her new show Acts of Resistance, Marianne Forrest explores themes of time to encompass research themes based on the idea of time.
Date: 20 March 2019
Cass lecturer Marianne Forrest will unveil a new series of drawings which explore time and its relationship to a lifetime and the psychology of memory, in the Cass Atrium Gallery later this month.
For ‘Acts of Resistance', which opens on Thursday 28 March and runs to 17 April 2019, Marianne has asked people to join her in the celebration of moments and in the zen space of repetitive action subverting notions of skill, art and the authorship of both.
Although a solo show she shares her time in the gallery with the people who contributed to her drawings and spent their precious moments in the creation of collective works that are simultaneously freeform and yet controlled.
The individual experience generated through the drawings creates a community enveloping the momentary involvement of the participants within the generosity of the result emphasising the psychophysical dynamics of the collective.
Acts of Resistance first showed at the Vittoria Gallery in Birmingham’s Jewellery quarter invited by Birmingham City University. The show is evolving and continues to grow with each venue. Visitors are invited to contribute to the next show by drawing on the canvasses prepared and on
The will be a private viewing of the show on Thursday 28 March from 6pm to 8pm
