Spring Exhibitions Preview
In spring 2019, Cross Lane Projects will present the work of over 300 artists from around the world across two curated exhibitions at the gallery; Flugblätter and Miniscule. Each of the two exhibitions is based on a specific proviso set by the curator.
In Flugblätter, or Flyers, the exhibition is curated by artist Brigit Jensen who asked her diverse international network of visual artists to respond to the latest developments in a globalised world – however all works for the exhibition had to be provided digitally via email. She asked the artists what position they took; how the changes and attendant social tensions and conflicts influenced their work? How they positioned themselves in relation to the transformations of our society in recent years and their local impacts?
In Miniscule, artists were invited by curator Vanya Balogh to submit a diminutive art object of any genre or media but with one simple proviso: the maximum size of the work is that of the common matchbox; 2” by 1.5”. For most of the artists participating, the format is an intriguing challenge; a stimulus or provocation; potentially a playful distraction from their standard artistic practice.
Join us for a special preview viewing of both projects on Friday 22 March 2019.
