It continues to present contemporary work in all media by regional, national and international artists, with a changing programme of exhibitions and events.
EXHIBITIONS & EVENTS
10 FEB - 24 FEB 2018
Structures is a two-week evolving exhibition and residency of international artists whose practice is informed by networks, frameworks and systems. Bringing together artists from the UK, Europe, and the US, the residency facilitates an exchange of methods, approaches and ideas. The artists will work together in the upper gallery, alongside a schedule of talks, discussions and workshops on all aspects of structures – whether manmade or natural – programmed by the artists and the gallery’s curatorial team.
The residency will involve practitioners at varying stages of their careers across all disciplines; painters, film-makers, sculptors, installation artists and curators, united by their work being informed by structures, rules or data.
The lower gallery will present a static exhibition of work previously made by each of the artists, to illustrate their usual practice and give a context to their time in the residency. In the upper gallery, one half of the space will be an evolving exhibition of work made by the artists during the residency, either individually or collaboratively. The other half will be an open-plan, flexible studio space, with tables, stools and storage for each artist. The open nature of studio and exhibition in one space will enable conversations between visitors and artists.
A daily programme of talks and workshops will take place in the studio space at the close of each day, from 16.00. Details will be listed on our website.
03 MAR — 02 JUN 2018
Encompassing new commissions, contemporary and modern artworks, and artefacts loaned by The Museum of Witchcraft, Boscastle, the project will explore overarching and infinite rhythms of nature, of folklore, of the occult, and how this becomes a lived system embodied by both artists and communities.
