EXHIBITION: an overheard map of now // 5th – 16th August
A series of interlocking, overlapping and collaborative installations exploring how artists respond to each other. Like a game of Chinese Whispers, artists will have 3-day mini-residencies in the gallery, and produce live performances, film and visual work based on what came before. Ever-morphing and transforming, the exhibition will be eating itself up as it goes along and vomiting back up all its courses.
You can explore the changes and how things are going on our Tumblr, and do pop down to see the artists in action too!
