Artist and curator Amy Shelton invites audiences to consider the crucial role of bees through an exhibition and education project that creates dialogue and exchange between scientists, artists, writers, beekeepers, school children and the public.


The twelve UK artists in this exhibition re-evaluate our ancient relationship to, and reliance upon pollinating insects and reflect on the microcosmic poetics of the bee. Shelton’s project which takes place at Spacex as part of their Associate Programme becomes a hive-like hub offering visitors an uplifting bees’ eye view of their city. An exhibition of the work of twelve artists re-evaluates our ancient relationship to, and reliance upon pollinating insects. Over four weeks three hundred Exeter primary school children will visit the gallery to make artwork of their own, celebrating this precious insect.

 Artists: Anthony Burrill, Clare Densley, Susan Derges, Tessa Farmer, Alec Finlay, Sarah Gillespie, Zsuzsi Morrison, Peter Randall-Page, Amy Shelton, Jem Southam, Nicky Thompson and Marcus Vergette.
