Join Lucy Jane Smith and Qfolk at the exhibition of Smith's first solo show

About

Kicking off our new programme for 2019, we have Lucy Jane Smith’s first solo exhibition in Liverpool. The show brings together work they developed during a Graduate Residency at The Art House in Wakefield, where Smith spent the beginning of this year after completing a BA in Fine Art at Liverpool John Moores University in 2018.

Smith’s work often relies on found objects, reworking free or cheap items and materials through collage, illustration and installation to offer the audience a casual and fun experience with their art. Unlike the strictness, professionalism and intense craftsmanship of the art world we are shown through major institutions, Smith’s practice operates on a different level because it has different priorities altogether. Politics, identity and authenticity matter more to the artist than typical success and the market. Art remains expression and a way to connect with others, rather than a conduit for business and insincere networking.

At the opening event for this exhibition, Smith will be joined by Liverpool-based Qfolk who brings with them a post folk punk yelling experience. Set starts at 7.30pm.
