ASLE-UK1 +Land2 Conference: Cross Multi Inter Trans
Sheffield Institute of Art/ Bank Street Studios
6th September 2017- 8th September 2017
This exhibition will bring together works by those who practice collaboratively and variously as artists, poets, performers, curators and academics. All work will be across disciplines to explore, through research and practice, ideas around landscape, place, ecology and environment. It will reflect artists’ preoccupation with and experimentation with space on the wall and within the book-space in relation to landscape. The exhibition will comprise artworks in a variety of media, including artists’ books, texts, images, videos, paintings and objects which are the result of Cross, Multi, Inter, Trans collaborative practices. The exhibition will incorporate poetry and text in vinyl on the windows and walls to be read in relation to the visual works hung on the wall. To exhibit these works in conversation with each other, will provide an enriched perspective of our relationship to landscape and will expand notions of collaboration.
