AboutEdges is an exhibition of three artists currently working with convergent themes concerning our built environment and the communities that exist within and around the city. The exhibition will develop as a presentation of film, photography and drawing which engages with the relationship between the planning and production of architectural and social spaces, and the lived experience of those spaces. The artists' approaches move between critical and exploratory using a mixture of methods which include archival based work, visual research, documentary and participant observation.
The work shown together creates a kind of tension between the distanced, analytical and proactive, hands on approaches; perhaps akin to the tension you see when the reality of the city-dwellers interrupts the smooth lines of modernist architecture.
Accompanying the exhibition will be two events; a discussion group and a children's workshop. The discussion group will be based around a section of the book âThe Coming Insurrection' on the structure of communes, which will be lead by artist David Spraggs. The children's workshop will take place on Family Day, inspired by themes in the exhibition and lead by artists Anna Chrystal Stephens and Carla Wright.
The Coming Insurrection Discussion Group Sunday 10th June 4pm
Children's Living Structures Workshop Saturday 9th June 12 2pm
