The exhibition will visit four established art venues in the North of England as part of Artranspennine08 and will also coincide with prominent contemporary art and music events. Contents May Vary will show work produced and selected in response to the transportation and exhibition context of a white van. The artists incorporate everyday objects through animation, drawing and performance and will exhibit three varied individual works with subtle commonalities. The white van is synonymous with the transit of varied goods and materials and is a regular method of art transportation. Contents May Vary have chosen to exhibit within the vehicle, leaving the exhibition one step short of it's expected gallery destination. Contents May Vary, co-founded in 2004, is Alice Bradshaw, Liz Murphy and Richard Shields. The collective organise and curate large scale group shows in diverse spaces as well as exhibit individually. They also run an independent, internationally distributed, Contents May Vary publication. Contents May Vary are currently part of Castlefield Gallery's Project Space, a programme that supports artists through sustained periods of bespoke professional development activities, funded by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Arts Council England.
