Crowd Show, NN Contemporary, 8 Sept - 3 Nov 2018
Crowd Show uses advertising techniques in order to start conversations about the meaning and value of art and the art world. It features work by a group of artists pulled together by 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. The results raise questions relating to representation, diversity, and how artists are paid, and are the backdrop to an evolving public programme. A new series of posters and ceramic works inspired by visitor conversations were added to the gallery as the show progressed.
