This is the Gallery and the Gallery is Many Things is the inaugural exhibition of Eastside Projects, a new artist-run gallery as experimental public space, set at the heart of Birmingham’s City Centre Eastside regeneration zone.
Over a 9 week period the exhibition and gallery space will evolve from a highly constructed ‘empty’ space to a layered and complex gathering of artworks, events and processes in various stages of convergence and divergence. The exhibition purposefully includes a wide range of UK based and International artists revealing different practices and approaches to the production of art in order to produce a unique explosion of ideas and possibilities as Eastside Projects comes into being. This is the Gallery and the Gallery is Many Things sets an ambitious framework for the future of the gallery and a diverse scope of relationships and connections designed to make visible cause and effect in the future life of the gallery.
This exhibition initiates the examination of the potential of cumulative artworks across the programme of the gallery for the coming years and the potential of a constantly evolving architectural space also in collaboration with the artists and architects connected to the gallery.
Public Talk Events: Peter Fend Saturday 27th September, 4pm.
