Crate is pleased to present Razyon Detra (on romance), an exhibition of new work by Michael Crowe across Crate's project spaces and outdoor sites in Margate. Romance can be reasonably thought of as unfashionable, twee, clichéd, anti-erotic and unrealistic in today's irony soaked world. Rayzon Detra offers a wealth of alternatives intended to breathe wild-eyed new life into this droopy genre, via texts, video, animation, survey, land art, publications and sculpture. Michael Jackson, distant planets, seeds, delicious litter, lies, unwanted sports gifts, Timmy Mallet and French New Wave all distort and melt in this contemporary swoon.
Rayzon Detra: a new vision of romance
16 Nov - 12 Jan 2013/14

Collaborative Research Group (CRG) is an alternative internship and education programme that sees a collaboration between University of the Creative Arts at Canterbury and CRATE. Inter-regionally funded it brings together a group of 6 arts practitioners who are interested in collaborative working and the pluralities of contemporary visual art practice (producing, curating, organising, writing, etc.). This programme is proposed to be both an alternative and complimentary to post-graduate and research-based education, and places itself directly in the art-world and academia.
CRG runs from September 2013 until April 2014
