A Show About The Show

Bankley Studios and Gallery

An exhibition about the nature of exhibitions, the show focussed on the culture, history and etiquette of art-shows and 'private-views'.

Twenty-two artists present new works in response to their experiences of exhibitions, reacting to their role in society, how they function and the customs and behaviours of an opening night. Through a wide variety of methods - including sound installation, photography, sculpture, performance, publications, video work and more - the artists each provide comment and critique on the rituals and traditions of the art exhibition.
