Pop-Up Show #3: Tuesday 4th March
Statements from exhibiting groups:
The Week 21 Contemporaries present 'Sorrounding'
The Sir John Cass Turbine Hall is delighted to host an exciting group of new and up and coming artists who are collectively known as The Week 21 Contemporaries.
Working in a diverse set of practices, this group brings together a series of pieces exploring the concepts, ideas, suggestions and mysteries of our surrounding. They challenge our traditional views and invite the observer to consider how we represent and think about the world which surrounds us all.
Featuring artworks by: Haydn Albrow, Krys Dembinska, Andy Dickerson, Alexandra Donnelly, Camiel Jones, Richard Rowbotham.
SPACE is a show comprising of a combination of works from six aspiring artists all with vastly different meanings behind their work who will come together to showcase one key underlying interest, the use of space. A broad title which gives us plenty of scope to work with when grouping together our varying practices. We aim to show you how our different concepts and choices of materials can be successfully merged together to create a harmonious collaboration within the turbine hall, challenging the space we have been given and transforming it to create a brand new experience.
In accordance to Aristotle, 'Space contains, it does not locate.'
Featuring artworks by: Laura Applegate, Trude Bekk, Amy Brennan, Ngoc Diep, Alicia Dupont, Maddy Salisbury.
Location: 2nd Floor Boulevard, Central House
Date: Tuesday 4 March 2014
Time: 11am - 5pm
