The contemporary art space operates without permanent collection or archive to set the context, but instead offers fleeting glimpses at experimental works. Reflective of what is current, work can be valid without longevity.
Beta Version 2.0 looks at the contemporary art exhibition as a temporary collection, with work that addresses the transience or otherwise of current practice, and explores the relationship between collection and curation; in particular the roles played by artist, curator and audience in creating work for display.
As part of this show Dan Simpson is asking twitter users to contribute lines for a poem about 'curating a collection'. He will collate all responses into a poem and will perform at the opening of the exhibition at 6.45 pm. Contributions can be made on twitter #collectedpoem
The exhibition is free to visitors and runs from January 19 March 10
Exhibiting Artists: Bridgette Ashton, Diane Dever, Ruth Geldard, Toby Huddlestone, Pavilion,
Angus Pryor, Dan Simpson, Mark J Smith.
