Whats On: ABBA on Tour

10th March to 26th March, 2017

ABBA on tour by Andrew Bracey and Ang Bartram

ABBA POSTER

ABBA is the curatorial and artistic collective of Angela Bartram and Andrew Bracey, two artists engaged with the act of making and process with divergent outcomes. ABBA seeks to create a conversation of interrogative and inquisitive practice born of doing.  The maker is saturated in the environment of exhibition and debate: the event is part residency, part production, part curatorial, part performance and part installation. This is live artistic research: talks, actions, artefacts, deliberations, provocations, ruminations, speculations, invention and creative assembly, process and production will be present.

The artists will be present in the gallery in the first week of the exhibition and everyone is welcome to come and engage with ABBA.

The exhibition in turn acts as a dialogue between venues. As it moves to the next it will regroup, restage, and reproduce the process in respect of site and circumstance. This is the pilot for the tour of this exhibition, which aims to respond to the letters in the title – A, will be in a city beginning with A; B in a city begging with B; the final B and A in a city that has a backwards writing style. Like a band on tour and with a set list defined by the performers the show will naturally change, mutate and draw in other participants, but the core principle of making and process remains integral.

Whats on; Speed Processing Slowly

Speed processing slowly – MA Fine Art

27th February to 9th March , 2017

Artists: Henry Allen / Louise Chalmers / Bethany Chapman / Alexandria Clow / Jacob Denness / Michelle Forrest-Beckett / Judith Greef / Geoffrey Green / Christopher Kane / Charlie Leffler / Yuen Shan Ling / Hannah McKinlay / Nathan Newton / Fiona Parkinson / Orinta Pranaityte / Josephine Richardson Whitaker / Charalambos Sergiou / Jessica Smith / Joanne Smith / Laura Stevenson / Alan Ward / Kezia-Marie Wattle/ Dale Wells / Bryn Williams / James Woolley

Speed Processing Slowly is an exhibition that prioritises the revealing of the process of 25 artists. Visitors will be able to see how artists move from a process of ideas, discussion, testing, experimenting, refining through to the resolution of artwork through the exhibition period.

The gallery will be turned into a laboratory for most of the exhibition where members of the public can actively engage and contribute to a discursive analysis of the processes an artist goes through in order to create. The process of creating the exhibition starts with a word being pulled from an artist’s dictionary to initiate a discussion around process within five groups of five artists. The artists will work towards visualising this debate into a one-day exhibition on the 9th March to close the two weeks. The artists will work to a structure that will enable this to happen over the fortnight which will be open and visible to the public and is welcoming of the input of the audience. The artists are particularly interested to hear from and respond to discussions from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines from beyond fine art in respect of how they approach the process of what they do.
