Following the success of their first group show at Bath Spa University’s Dartmouth Avenue Campus, eight contemporary artists are to showcase their work at Milsom Place with an exhibition entitled #ProjectSpace. Running from 17th to 28th April #ProjectSpace seeks to open up a wider conversation on issues not usually seen in contemporary art today.
With work ranging from photography to painting, sound art to drawing, and video to installation art, this exhibition shows the extensive and diverse range of interests and disciplines explored by these emerging artists.
From Handley-Merricks’ sound piece documenting the nature of prolonged and extensive medical pill taking, to Wilmshursts’ photography which questions the ethics and aesthetics of looking. To the problems of subjective representation – Samples’ paintings that follow the Western World’s reaction to the uprisings in the Middle East, Jones’ drawings that explore the way in which the repeated drawn line can signify three dimensional space and Howards’ video exploring the demands and pressures society places on young working mothers.
