Thursday 09 July 2015

MSB2015 Open Studio 2 features new work by members of Castlefield Gallery Associates (Manchester), Bloc Projects (Sheffield) and Extra Special People (Birmingham).

This is the second part of a three-part residency exchange focused on providing opportunities for making work in quick, experimental contexts, developing conversations with other practitioners and opening opportunities for collaboration. The series of residencies is designed to develop the practices of the participating artists by providing them with critical input and opportunities to experiment, collaborate, develop their networks nationally, make new work and exhibit.

The artists exhibiting will be: Peter Bourne, Sandra Bouguerch, Sophie Bullock, Roger Bygott, Claire Davies, Niall Gormley, Lisa Denyer, Jenny Drinkwater, Rachael Hand, Jane Lawson, Rebecca Ounstead, Helen Stratford, Lea Torp Nielson and Claire Tindale.

The third part of the exchange takes place at Stryx in Birmingham from 3rd to 7th August.
