THE GENERAL MEDIUM opening thurs 22nd nov

Opening Night - Thursday 22nd November 6pm - 9pm
Open Friday 23rd - Sunday 25th November, 10am - 5pm

'The General Medium' is an experiment between seven artists, all recent UCA graduates. They have been asked by the curator to swap works and 'consider the medium' to make something new. Half instruction, half suggestion, Claire Scott has asked each of the artists to shift their usual way of making and consider using new strategies and media in which to carry out their ideas. Among many combinations and collaborations, a painter will be faced with video work, a video artist faced with sculpture. Could it result in a positive way of making, or is a painting simply a painting?
