Collaboration in Art and Theatre
25 January - 24 April 2014Preview: Fri 24 Jan, 6pm-8pm
Preview only: includes performance of Slip Stroll by Philip Lee and Cally Trench (involves male nudity)

Art is about illusion, about taking people on a journey to places, situations and emotions they may not have the access or the imagination to visit. This exhibition looks at set design and considers the artistic design process and the underpinning collaboration between artistic disciplines necessary for success, in short the art of Creating a Scene.

The exhibition views set design in its broadest sense, aiming to capture something of the variety of disciplines in which set design is employed. ItCreating a Scene includes work by leading international artists and designers working in theatre, opera, dance, film, photography, the visual arts, performance art, and work by emerging new talent. Throughout the exhibition you can see examples of the design process including sketches, working models, finished designs and theatre sets.

Exhibiting artists include Edward Allington, Franko B, Ivor Beddoes, Giuseppe Belli, James Casebere, Julian Crouch, Richard Deacon, Thomas Demand, Hein Hecktroth, Christopher Hobbs, Howard Hodgkin, Derek Jarman, Philip Lee, Davy and Kristin Mcguire, Bruce McLean, Louise Ann Wilson, Edwin Zwakman.
Curators: Jeremy Webster, Naomi Law
