Curated by Laura Preston

Opening and website launch: Friday 10 July, 6pm

The starting point for this exhibition project was to invite nine artists, designers and writers to consider how art can engage, by means of its forms and structures, in the political realities of this moment. The artists’ projects will act as a series of proposals for embracing this time of uncertainty, where structures and systems that we have come to know are being brought into focus and re-defined. Using the gallery as a place of proposition, the works presented both in the building and online, will question the political efficacy of contemporary art by suggesting other ways to claim space and be resourceful within it. Furthermore, the exhibition will employ the university as a place for interdisciplinary thinking, to ask whether a pedagogical site can re-think art’s purpose and affect. Accompanied by a public programme of night talks, a workshop and sound event, the Adam Art Gallery will become an active site of discussion and a resource for the future.

Reviews:

I'm in love, I 'm in love with teh Bells of St Marks.

by Flake
I've had a big reaction to this how, and it has as much to do with teh art works as teh people who made thme, and including some particular people that were theere to see it , dispite their hat of it.
