cu·rate is a group exhibition that aims to explore contemporary curatorial practice through interdisciplinary collaborations between artist and curator. The exhibition will feature a range of new commissions, site-specific installations and unseen archive film footage. Moving image and performance artist Dave Charlesworth, will present a series of films that explore fragmented personal histories. Recent graduate Holly Hendry will be assembling a site-specific installation that explores the space between construction and collapse. Conceptual artist, Cesare Pietroiusti will present a major series of specially commissioned drawings that invite the visitor to become a participant; whilst visual photographer and installation artist James Thurgood will be re-imagining past work, which explores the viewer’s direct relationship with text, image and colour.
