Fighting For Crumbs

flier 1

Another project I have been involved in is coming to fruition. Fighting For Crumbs (Art in the shadow of neo-liberal Britain) is a group exhibition featuring video, installation, 3D wall art, crafted art, paintings, photography, poetry and performance. The main exhibition is taking place in Sheffield, and ties in to an exhibition of John Ledgers work at the Redshed in Wakefield, as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations.

Inspired by the film ‘Invisible Britain’ (based on the work of the Sleaford Mods), the  Sheffield exhibition will include new works by all participants, produced in response to the political and economic climate in the UK, and reflecting the position of art, and artists, in a period dominated by austerity. As part of the exhibition we have produced a video, which will be shown in Sheffield on the 8th, and Wakefield on the 13th of August.

Corinne Deaks and John Ledger are both producing installation pieces. One of Johns installations will be in collaboration wth the poet Jonathan Butcher. Rebekah Whitlam’s contribution will include both craft art and installation, as she explores the conflicts between economic survival and artistic expression. Connor Matheson will showcase his social-realist photography, and Nick Kilby will be performing a new piece especially created for the show. In addition we will have a number of John Ledgers superb wall pieces.

I will be showing at least 10 paintings as part of this show, including several new works. I hope some of you can manage to come along, I am confident that it will be a strong and intriguing show. Thank you for reading 🙂
