In the Open | 6th – 29th September
In the Open spans two Sheffield based venues, Bank Street Arts and Sheffield Institute of the Arts. The exhibition consists of artworks in a variety of media, including artists’ books, text, images, films, paintings and objects all of which are the result of collaborative practices. All work has been made by at least two collaborators across disciplines to explore ideas around landscape, place, ecology and environment. Some of the collaborative groupings are new having been brought together especially for this exhibition. Contrasting with other long-standing working relationships. Exhibiting these works in conversation with each other, will offer an enriched perspective of our relationship to landscape and expand notions of collaboration.
