Save Event: Transition

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Transition is an opportunity for artists to experiment for a week in a gallery setting. Each project is in a constant state of flux as artists try out new ideas without the constraints of a finalised exhibition.


Transition is an opportunity for artists, or artist groups, to use the gallery space at Newlyn Art Gallery to consider how a series of works is developing or to try out ideas for an installation or interactive project.

Each artist will be given a week-long slot in either the lower gallery or the upper gallery, with a total of eight artists (or groups of artists) participating over the four weeks. 

Transition gives artists the time and space to take ideas forward in a public environment, aiming to resolve conceptual and practical issues, without the constraints of presenting a finalised exhibition. Artists can challenge their practice and take risks concerning their usual working techniques. 
They will be able to discuss their work with the curatorial staff at Newlyn Art Gallery, as well as with the visiting public and other artists.
