Every Tuesday, for seven successive weeks, two groups will be displaying artworks simultaneously. The second in the series takes place Tuesday 25th February, 2-5pm. Everyone is welcome!
Pop-Up Show #2: Tuesday 25th February
Statements from exhibiting groups:
Human Interaction features four talented and amazing fine art students, coming together to create a collaborative exhibition like no other, pulling together works from different disciplines and artistic styles in order to portray the variety of ways that humans interact within the world. Be it on a social, ecological, economic or political level, as humans we each effect and are affected by our actions.
Featuring artworks by: Georgette Annobi, Guy Marshall–Brown, Paulina Glimas, Natanya Barrett.
Inspired by the endless possibilities of 'chance' and also by JK Huysmans classic 1884 novel A Rebours (Against Nature) in which the main protagonist decides to create his own artistic language in response to the overwhelming cultural overload he found himself in, this show is a multimedia response to the hectic world we live in. It aims to invoke thoughts of memory, action and deception through works on paper, photography, appropriated imagery and scultural forms.
Featuring artworks by: Matthew Cotsell, Charlotte Richardson, Levana Assouline, Paul Hurley.
Location: 2nd Floor Boulevard, Central House
Date: Tuesday 25 February 2014
