About

VIEWPOINTS: A SERIES OF ARTISTIC CONVERSATIONS 

This sixth show of the Rooftop Collective (est. 2010) showcases work by The Rooftop Collective Members:   Chris King – Graham Matthews - Jeremy Johns - Paul Clifford - Toby Deveson -Tom Owens.

Additionally, selected guest artists from an open call are paired with members:  

Annamarie Dzendrowskyj - Consuelo Simpson - Judith Burrows – Lesley James – Michael Wallner - Susan Clare.  

Presenting a variety of works, from installations of found objects discovered in a daily walk to analogue photographic prints, and incorporating a selection of short videos, the show invites the viewer to experience a breadth of art, paired in conversations between collective members and guest artists.

Anna McNay, Guest Curator, who has worked closely with each pairing, writes:  

“Take any one object of study and no two persons’ perceptions of it will ever be exactly the same. We each have our own, unique viewpoint on everything around us. A dialogue becomes fruitful, imparting knowledge from one party to the other, when each participant draws out further aspects of the subject, perhaps overlooked by their partner.  

This exhibition comprises six such nascent dialogues, between six members of the photographic Rooftop Collective and six responding artists of various media, who, despite their different approaches, find common ground in their work –thus providing the seed for a conversation, begun by the artists, but which we hope will be continued by visitors as well.”
