The Engine Room, The Exchange
THE COLLABORATORS’ ANNUAL EXHIBITION
Fragment24a, an exhibition within an exhibition, is a three-strand response to Many & Beautiful Things by The Collaborators, the gallery’s collective of emerging artists aged 30 and under. Running concurrent to the main show, there is a mixed media exhibition of work in The Engine Room at The Exchange, reflecting their interests and concerns; two billboard prints of still images, one for a wall at Newlyn Art Gallery, and another at The Exchange, capturing the essence of what it’s like to be young; plus posts on Instagram offering a different perspective during the exhibition. Collabaorator Johannes Black chose a selection of coming-of-age films, which were shared across social media. All three elements explore the same themes as Many & Beautiful Things and are a record of what it is to be young now.
The exhibition in The Engine Room has been co-selected by Cat Gibbard, and Amos Jacob, a young curator and producer of The Thrown Gauntlet festival in Falmouth. The images for the Fragment24a billboards were selected by Oliver Udy of Antler Press, with Blair Todd.
Opening Event: Fri 28 Sep, 18.30 – 20.00 at The Exchange and 19.00 – 21.00 at Newlyn Art Gallery
