Experimental text-based art in unusual locations
Artists from Italy, Slovenia and Bosnia Herzegovina come to Cambridge this January for PLACE: Relinking, Relating, Relaying, an exhibition taking place at The Ruskin Gallery and Gallery 9 project space on Norfolk Street. The exhibition is organised by Art Language Location (ALL), a not-for-profit, collaborative organisation run by artists based in Cambridge which aims to support artists and bring innovative, exciting and experimental text-based art to unusual and interesting locations across Cambridge and beyond. PLACE will feature an exciting and varied range of artworks that consider themes of community, locality and communication.
Highlights include a new linguistic soundscape by Andreja Džakušič, a shared meal with Simon Macuh participating via Skype from Slovenia, and a real-time run from London to Cambridge by Veronique Chance. There will also be a range of interactive projects which you can get involved with, including a collaborative painting devised by Maja Rubinic, and a postcard project by Jo Miller.
“We are delighted to be bringing new art to Cambridge and to be working with friends from many different countries on a shared project and it is exciting to be bringing such a diverse range of artworks and approaches to Cambridge,” says Robert Good, chair of ALL. “In the current climate of uncertainty, our exhibition will be a great opportunity to show how art and creativity can be a force for good, connecting people from different communities and sharing experiences across cultures and beyond boundaries.”
The exhibition runs 25 January to 1 February.
