Newlyn Art Gallery

Transition is an opportunity for artists, or artist groups, to use the gallery space to consider how a series of works is developing or to try out ideas for an installation or interactive project. Transition gives artists the time and space to take ideas forward in a public environment, aiming to explore conceptual and practical issues, without the constraints of presenting a finalised exhibition. Artists can challenge their practice and take risks concerning their usual working techniques. It offers visitors the chance to see work in a state of flux, meet the artists and discuss the work.

12 – 16 MAR
Both galleries: JOMO
An open-ended dialogue between space, artworks and people, where nothing is fixed but always expanding and contracting, breathing in and out. Resonance grows, and falls between, individual dispositions, insights, information and experiences.
