Exhibition dates: 1st - 10th September
Homage is a group exhibition which encourages artists to pay tribute to artists and theorists who have been influential to their arts practice in some way. How participants consider their response is open-ended and may make reference to methods of satirising, plagiarising, appropriating and lionising.
Homage has sprouted from consideration of the 'Art School' experience of being constantly directed towards artists and critics that are intended to inform our practice. Invariably these artists and critics are comfortably situated in the pantheon of contemporary art and our role as students is to engage, respond and eventually find our place. This show is intended to take a step back in the process and allow participants to respond in more direct ways to these artists.
Featured in the exhibition, Gabrielle New performed, 'Art must not be beautiful. Artist must not be beautiful'
