A3 Project Space is an artist-led gallery in Digbeth Birmingham, run by Trevor Pitt, Oliver Jones and Cathy Wade. A responsive and evolving programme of exhibitions, projects and events will support contemporary artists, designers and makers to experiment and take risks with their work and their relationships with audiences.
A3 Project Space culminates its opening programme with 'Jesmonite on Paper', an exhibition which explores a re-emergence of non-objectivity amongst a new generation of artists.
The works in the exhibition develop from and engage in their own materiality as stuff is manipulated in to things. The things are constructed through kinaesthetic processes, trial and error and experimentation, and the human qualities (mistakes, slippages, imperfections and unexpected results) become integral both to the form of the work and the viewers' reading of it.
Curated by Newcastle based artist Andrew Maughan the exhibition has been re-worked for A3 Project Space in collaboration A3 Curator Cathy Wade, with support from Arts Council England.
Workplace Gallery is a contemporary art gallery run by artists.
Based in Gateshead UK, Workplace Gallery represents a portfolio of emerging and established artists through the gallery programme, curatorial projects and international art fairs.
