Crowd Show - exhibition, commissions and public programme

NN Contemporary

8 Sept - 3 Nov 2018

Crowd Show was an exhibition that also was not an exhibition. Crowd Show uses advertising to start conversations about the ecology of the art world of Northampton. It began with a billboard advertisement on a road in Northampton featuring the phrase ‘artist seeking artists’, essentially acting as an open call for anyone to submit work for exhibition. Every respondent was invited to exhibit a work in Crowd Show in the form of a digital print, and these images formed the backdrop to an evolving public programme. The programme was designed with staff and visitors to raise questions relating to representation, diversity, and how artists are paid. Sarah designed a new series of posters and ceramic works inspired by visitor conversations, which were added to the gallery as the show progressed.
