Next Members Exhibition:  Moving


The next members’ exhibition is called ‘Moving’. This theme could be approached from a number of different angles.

Members can play with the word ‘moving’- emotionally moving, physically moving (house, etc,) or use a medium which embodies movement e.g video, performance, mechanisation. Clocks, windscreen wipers, cement mixers can also be used in alternate ways…

Our window spaces offer a wonderful environment for performance and it would be great if a variety of artists could volunteer to do short performances throughout the exhibition.

Artists whose work you might like to check out are- Mike Parr and his work 'One Hundred Portraits'; Mike’s sister Julie Rrap who uses her own body in video works on feminist themes; Ulay and Marina Abramovic’s 'Imponderabilia' (1977); Rosemary Laing’s photographic work 'Flight Research # @2A' (objects moving through space).

Caitlan Franzmann won the 2015 Theiss Prize with a performance of herself engaging visitors to the gallery in a session of Tarot readings. Two young artists Clark and Beaumont created a sensation last year on youtube with a video of themselves standing for long periods of time on top of a plinth                                                               together. (They were also runners up in the Theiss Prize.)

                                                           You could also consider-

                                                            Documentation of travel, artist books etc

                                                            A series of drawings that tell a story (flip books etc)

                                                           Things that make the viewer move e.g interactive works.

                                                            The exhibition runs from 17 - 30 June 2015 (opening night celebration: 19 June 2015, 6-8PM).

                                                            Get your work into the gallery by Tuesday 16 June at the latest!

                                                            Happy thinking!
