Ascension – final degree show prep

Our third year students managed to take over unused spaces in Preston Market for their final Degree show ‘Ascension’, with some extensive prep work and effort they transformed these spaces from abandoned to gallery in a few long days. A great effort from everyone involved, well done Class of 2017!

screen-shot-2017-02-13-at-12-40-03

DOMINO is proposed as the first of a sequence of SAVORR led programmes that will launch a self-supporting network with other regional art scenes. Here, two artists from Birmingham, Brian J Morrison and Emily Warner, have been invited to create new work for the first floor of The Shoe Factory. Working in dialogue with contemporary art critic Jonathan P. Watts, the progression of the invited artists’ ideas will be documented and such material will be on display for visitor insight and discussion.

Resist, resist release, will see Brian and Emily work collaboratively to produce works informed by crossovers in their practice. Both Artists are interested in the body and its relationship to art and will develop a response to each other and the exhibition space.

As part of the exhibition Brian and Emily will be acting as judges for a film/moving image open call. To submit to this please follow the link below.

More information and documentation of the project will be updated on the SAVORR webspace during the production week.
