Exhibition featuring nine Cass Fine Art Alumni at Mile End Art Pavilion.
Date: 1 March 2013
News, Exhibition: 14-17 March 2013
Increasing external, social and cultural pressures may suggest it is easier to NOT make art, than make it.
This group of 9 emerging art graduates from the Sir John Cass School of Art reject this suggestion and have created a show of what they do by considering what Show(ing) Of(f) actually offers individuals and an audience.
Show Of*! is formed out of various Fine Art practices, including painting, photography, sculpture, time-based media and performance.
These Show Of(f)'s aim to explore and provoke conventions of display and audience acceptance, considering what Show(ing) Of(f) may be to all those participating.
Show Of*! recognises that artworks are not easy to harmonise or convenient to categorise, classify and value, but looks to promote the very nature of making art as an engagement with these challenges.
The Private View on the 14th March (6pm-9pm) will feature a performance by Gloria and Vicente Amor and Gabriel Andreu, and an artists discussion on the 17th March (2pm-4pm).
The artists are: Gabriel Andreu, Harry Bauer, Amelia Bauskis, Elena Dimitrova, Irene Godfrey, Jenni Hodgson, David McSweeney, Veronica Vasile, Fred Vernon
Exhibition Advisor: Neil Ferguson.
|Private view||14 March, 6-9pm|
|Opening hours||Thursday-Sat, 11-6pm; Sun, 11-5pm|
