Join the INLAND team at Centrala for an exhibition of new work that scratches the surface of the intangible topic of #gender. This portable exhibition in zine format defies conventional approaches to display.

About

INLAND was founded in 2016 as a response to the uncertain future of affordable #artspace in the UK. INLAND seeks to explore the ideas of of them and us, of clearly delineated thresholds and of arbitrary lines drawn in the sand. Whether it be gender, nationality or class this zine intends to reflect upon the ways in which these lines are transgressed and transcended through the work of contemporary artists and writers.

For it's second edition, Neither, INLAND explores ideas around gender. How is gender constructed? What is the impact of gender on identity? How can we challenge perceived gender norms through the creative process? INLAND#2 draws together a strong selection of artists taking on diverse approaches to this topical motif through painting, sculpture, photography and the written word. 

Part of the DIY ethos of INLAND is accessibility. The work of participating artists is made available in printed form and can be sent out in order to create an exhibition in almost any space. A copy of INLAND#2 will be posted to the team at Centrala who will respond to the zine, deconstructing it in order to make a show in their cafe space. Sylwia Narbutt and Flora Bradwell, the curators of INLAND project, will be in the space from 5pm to discuss the ideas behind the project, their process as collaborators and to meet local artists.
