Fragment24a, an exhibition within an exhibition, is a three-strand response to Many & Beautiful Things by The Collaborators, the gallery’s collective of emerging artists aged 30 and under. Running concurrent to the main show, there will be a mixed media exhibition of work in The Engine Room at The Exchange, reflecting their interests and concerns; two billboard prints of still images, one for a wall at Newlyn Art Gallery, and another at The Exchange, capturing the essence of what it’s like to be young; plus an Instagram takeover on four weekends offering a different perspective during the exhibition. All three elements will explore the same themes as Many & Beautiful Things and be a record of what it is to be young now.
The exhibition in The Engine Room will be co-selected by Cat Gibbard, and Amos Jacob, a young curator and producer of The Thrown Gauntlet festival in Falmouth. The images for the billboards will be co-selected by Oliver Udy of Antler Press and Blair Todd.
